At five stars, it's a bargain for the level of service you'll receive. The free breakfast alone is easily worth 50 Euro for two and comes part of the room price. Huge fluffy bathing towels, a heavenly bed and prime historic location make this perfect for a long weekend escape. I especially want to call out the staff (restaurant, bar... More

What a wonderful hotel! The location was perfect, as was the spa, the staff and the restaurant Tchaikovsky for breakfast. I was there only for a weekend, but I would absolutely recommend and not hesitate to stay there again.

This is a really nice hotel in the center of the old town. The beds were amazing! I have to get one of those at home too!! Also the breakfast was nice! Even though it's a bit on the expensive side, this will definitely be my choice if I ever return to Tallinn.

We stayed here for a birthday trip. It is right in the heart of the city and very convenient to walk everywhere within the city walls. My travelling partner who organised the surprise trip did so with the extremely useful help of one of the staff. They helped organise trips and book restaurants. She thought this was invaluable and made... More
