I stayed at the Merchants Hotel in the old town of Tallinn for a week with my wife. We were so pleased and can strongly recommend it to anyone. The location can not be better in the middle of the old town. Fro there you have avcess to most of the attractions and/or activities a tourist is looking for. The... More

You will be conveniently located in the Old Town. The staff is very pleasant and helpful. The rooms are in two old buildings joined together with quirky staircases. Each room is unique, they are not cookie cutters. We enjoyed the bathrobes provided and took a cleansing and rejuvenating sauna in their modern basement spa. There is an interior courtyard for...

The hotel is well located within Old Town. Close to everything yet quiet. We were in room 109 facing the courtyard. The room is spacious but could be organized a bit better. Bathroom is large but no cabinetry for toiletries. Surprisingly no shower curtain. Housekeeping did not do a good job. Did not replace shampoo or take away used glasses.... More

We stayed here during a mixed work/sightseeing trip to Tallinn. Our room (the Hansa Suite) overlooked the hotel's quiet internal courtyard. The room itself was lovely and we had the added (and unexpected) bonus of our own sauna in the beautiful bathroom, which was a real treat. Breakfasts were varied and tasty (although the cellar room where you eat is... More

May be they run out of room but this is more like a hostel than hotel. I was on a land tour and checked into this hotel with a group of people. We paid the same price, so I would assume we all get the same grade of room. I could not speak for the quality of the room other... More

We spent three evening here and had a wonderful experience. Friendly hospitality and Jason who ran the bar was exceptional. The privately owned Italian restaurant downstairs was fabulous, the food exceptional and the chef, her husband and son made us feel like family.

A top location for tourists just off the main square in the old town. It incorporates some old buildings and has converted these into a boutique hotel. Consequently every room is different. The conversion included very modern attractive bathrooms, tiled and heated floors. Unfortunately they appear to have EITHER a bath or a shower and we would much prefer a... More

A small intimate hotel just off the old town square. The perfect base for exploring the UNESCO old town. A quiet oasis to get away from the hoards of boat tourists that arrive most summer days. It is so Central you can get anywhere on foot. Fantastic helpful staff. This renovated medieval old building give you a taste of the... More
