First....This hotel is generally good, but look into what you actually get if you book one of the packages........I booked a one night romantic package. All is not made clear when booking. Price included 3 course meal, and breakfast, I was disappointed to learn you do not have a choice of meal, waiter told us what we would be eating,... More

Really special place - old building, placed in old town with ancient rooms (walls are original stone) so You are surrounded with history. Good breakfast, very nice staff, proffesional reception. One of the best hotels I have ever been.

We stayed two nights with my friend on room no 1. Room wasn´t very big but it had a nice big window and big bathroom. Room was comfortable and very clean. Bed was one of the most comfortable I´ve ever slept in! Hotel is small, cosy and personal. Free wi-fi worked good. We found the service in the reception very... More

Having stayed at this hotel for 2 nights I can say about no disadvantages but absence of elevator (quite explainable in protected historical building) and poor lightning in the room (also OK for medieval-style hotel). Location, staff, atmosphere, breakfast - all was just great. I can see absolutely no reason to pay twice for Schlossle (been there too). But don't... More

Cru Hotel is in the Old Town, which made our trip easy. We were able to walk to most of the famous attraction and other places. We booked 2 rooms and they were both good size room. The rooms had mixture of both old and modern furniture. The staffs were not that friendly but they were helpful. We ate out;... More

This place is stunning, with lovely rooms in an old merchant's building and great service. Right in the heart of Old Town, easy to walk everywhere. They have a sauna but I didn't get a chance to try it. The attached restaurant was amazing too!

We stayed here for two nights. The hotel is placed directly in the Old Town of Tallinn and you can walk to the famous attractions. When we arrived the stuff welcome us a German. A nice gesture. Our room was big and a very successful blend of old and modern furniture. Old brick walls and cupboards, modern technique and bathroom.... More

We chose to stay here for our "baby moon" and were very pleasantly surprised! The place is very quaint, cozy, traditionally stylish with a prime location! Just step outside the hotel and you are in the middle of the lively and vibrant Old Town, Tallinn! Just step inside and the hustle and bustle of the busy streets (spring/summer) drift away... More

The Viru is in the heart of the Old Town and can be difficult to find if you haven't done your homework. There are two reasons for this: first, the hotel's new owners are changing its name to Cru Hotel and second, as of May 2012 there is no name sign on the front of the building. TIP: use street...
