We stayed for 1 night and I had requested a quiet room facing the private courtyard, which we also were given. The room was a deluxe room on the 3rd floor and it was perfect for a short stay - if we had stayed longer a bigger room would have been nice. Airconditioning was indeed a nice thing to have... More

We stayed in this hotel for a couple of nights this week. I'm guessing our room was one of the smallest (308) but it was quiet,comfy and worked well. Staff were polite and friendly. Good quality ingredients for breakfast. Very central Old Town so handy for everything. We'd happily stay there again. No lift because it's an old building so... More

The rooms are not large but clean. They charge for Cappucino at breakfast but don´t know how to do them right. Better stick with tea instead. Breakfast is all right. Personell friendly but won´t jump higher than they need to. Considering the fairly high price the rating is average.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review. I only wish we would have made a more unique and personal impression during your stay. The hotel charges for specialized coffee like (cappuccino, latte) for the breakfast, so that this allows the breakfast service staff ample time to service all guests during breakfast. Anyhow your comments encourage us to walk another extra... More

Great location near the square. Large, good looking room with authentic historic features. Clean and comfortable bed. Generous breakfast buffet in an attractive old stone cellar. More than helpful staff that gave restaurant recommendations and directions. Great price. Perfect in every way.

We decided to go back to Tallinn one last time before heading home. As we are now on holiday, we also decided not to rush and be able to see more of Tallinn than when we were there in March. I was able to book the Merchant's House, expecting that the rooms shown on the website would not be in... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in May. We would recommend the executive rooms for their spacious size and amenities. We had a tub that was large enough to accommodate a couple. One section of our wall was the original fresco from the 14th century. The hotel is located about 1/2 block away from the main square, and within a... More

We stayed for 3 nights in June2014. The location could not be better - right in the middle of the beautiful old town. The hotel buildings go back to 16-17 Century, build around a central courtyard. We had a large, comfortable room on the ground floor facing into the courtyard. All the staff very helpful with good recommendations for local... More

This hotel was very well situated in the heart of the old town, surrounded by bars, restaurants, cigar rooms and German Breweries, oh and lots of historic buildings, churches, walls, etc. The hotel staff were very friendly, spoke perfect English and changed our room when we asked for one with a bath without question. They recommended a local Estonian restaurant... More

Situated just in the heart of old Tallinn. An very old building with it´s historical beautiful details. Still a modern stylish hotel. The room in the third floor facing in the courtyard was completely soundproof allthough very small (no 305). The shower splashed the whole bathroom wet which was not so nice and the towels were all worn out, -... More
