We had an Executive Double Room for 5 nights during December this year. As everyone says, the location was ideal, very central to the Old Town. However, the hotel in general is nothing like the photos, which are virtually all taken from the most expensive Executive Suites. In fact it was difficult to see how this hotel merited the 4...

This hotel was a gem beautiful courtyard 13th century building each room is unique. Jonathan the gm/owner is a really nice guy and very service focused. I will definitely stay here again a gem. The courtyard was charming and made a nice place to chill. Breakfast was hot and hardy with nice service.

My mother and I stayed at the hotel in December 2014, when we were in town for the Christmas market. The hotel is ideally situated in the middle of The Old Town, and everything we needed was within walking distance. The hotel rooms were spacious and clean, and had everything we needed, without being overly luxurious. Nice and big bathtub,... More

You cannot find s more central hotel in Tallinn - great for business and leisure / 1 minute walk to main square and the cathedral. It's got rooms of various types and sizes, a cute bar and what looked like it could be a nice summer cafe outside. Breakfast and dinner were excellent and the GM Jonathan is always around... More

My organization hosted a meeting in Tallinn in mid-October. We booked 15 or so rooms at the MMH for three days. Our meeting participants were seasoned and senior journalists, editors, ambassadors, defense and foreign affairs government officials, senior members of the President's staff (of Estonia) and policy experts from the US and 6-7 European cities.

Stayed here for 2 nights. Right in the middle of Old Town and really convenient, the location can't be beaten if you are here on holiday. It is an old building but in my opinion there is little done to showcase its history, it somehow lacks of some charme and small details which often make the difference. Super-comfy bed, large...

This is a nice medieval-ish hotel in the middle of the old-town, so you are close to most sights. The staff is very, very, curteous, the rooms are ok'ish - in mine, the bathroom had a heated floor, but the dial was broken, so you couldn't adjust the temperature... felt like sauna. The building is old, which has the typical... More
