Well I am a compulsive organiser, so once I had booked the room I emailed the GM, Jonathan, and he was so helpful, responding very quickly to my queries and giving us great advice. This was before we had even got there! We arrived, early, to the hotel and the room wasn't ready - but it was before 2pm so... More

Perfectly located for the city centre yet (certainly our room) was astonishingly peaceful, The breakfasts were excellent for a small hotel with ample fresh fruit and yogurt as well as carefully cooked options and all the staff were professional and obliging. The small negative observations would be that the decor is slightly worn and if black pud is on the... More

Make no mistake, this hotel was really good value for money (we paid the rate for a basic room). My only negative points would be: 1) Room finish was a bit dodgy - also hated the sliding door to the shower room. 2) The breakfast area really had a nasty whiff of drains and sewage - it was vile! 3)...

The location was perfect for wandering around Tallinn. The room was spacious and comfortable. They earsily accommodated our need for a third bed for my five year old son, not just a cot but a sofa that turned into a bed. The front desk was always available for advice and guidance. We loved the massive tub in the bathroom and... More

Wonderful, small boutique hotel, perfectly located in old town Tallinn. Service was excellent, rooms clean, comfortable and of unique character. Wifi free/fast and breakfast lavish, served in a medieval stone hall in the basement. Spa/gym combo came as an extra bonus. Stationary bike was rather decoration as out of order, roving machine worked. Sauna design left some room for improvment... More

This is a good four-star hotel in Tallinn, and the location is just perfect! We stayed in the Board Room Suite, and really enjoyed the spacious and tastefully decorated room. The staff is really helpful, professional and friendly. However, we experienced a couple of minuses, which prevents us from giving the highest score. Firstly, the reception and fire place area...

Incredible hotel right in the centre of Tallinn, steps away from the main square. The rooms were spacious with lovely bathrooms and the bed was comfortable. The staff could not have been friendlier or more efficient and the breakfast was incredible, it really set us up each day for a solid day's sightseeing.

Have just come back from staying here. Have been several times before. Every room we have stayed in has been clean, spacious and good wifi. This year the hotel gave us a wonderful suite. Thank you. Only one little criticism, no English tea (I know so British) and the water urn was not hot enough.
