I read the reviews for this hotel and was really worried because they weren't good. The hotel isn't laid out for lots of luggage as there is no lift. The rooms are quaint and basic. When I booked I asked for a quiet room and was nervous when they gave me a room near the lobby. It was a bit... More

DO NOT STAY AT THIS HOTEL!!! Where should I start? When we first checked into the hotel and entered our room (132), we noticed a distinct smell of feces and blood sausage, which was quite off-putting. We noticed it came from the bathroom, so I was like, ‘okay, let me flush the residue of dump in the toilet and get... More

I agree that it is great to be in the center of the old town, and this hotel is really near. But now the problems start: -never let them give you room 208 because it is a room near the rubbish room and it really smells -the Wi-Fi connexion is low and there isn't signal in so much rooms -the...

Four-star hotel in Tallinn's Old Town - sounds good, but in reality it is to think about whether it really corresponds to the four-star level. In fact, the only one that showed in a good level, had breakfast, which was really a great selection of dishes. On arrival in the hotel, were offered the choice of two rooms, one of... More

Hotel is very old fashioned and rundown. No lifts to the many rooms which are not clearly numbered. Very steep stairs, no help with suitcases .Bedrooms smelling of drains and many rooms without windows .Nightclub based under the hotel with very load music.from 9pm til 5am! Old fashioned poor selection for breakfast, having a toaster would add interest to the... More

I have stayed here two times in 2008 and 2015 and the difference was HUGE. First time I really loved it. The building is rustic and beautiful, but in 7 years it looks like stuff aren't just tken care off. Reception personal was far from helpful and friendly. Breakfast was awful. Croissants were maybe 1 day old and there were... More

The place is rustic and centrally located. Great location actually. The staff is ok, but not exactly accommodating. We had to ask for an extra mattress five times over two days. There is also a night club located downstairs. It is open until about 6 am during the weekend. We had absolutely no sleep. Ask for a room far away... More

We, a young couple, stayed for two nights during a summerweekend at the second floor (201). Although we noticed that we could hear most of what was going on in the hallway outside plus a creeking ceiling, we found the stay pleasent. Having a window towards the smokingterass may not have been ideal since we couldnt have the curtains open... More

This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. The first room they assigned me was a cave off the back patio. The second room the walls and cieling are backed up to the hallways and all night long you can hear everything in the halls and above your room. There is a nightclub in the basement of this... More

Best word for this place is quirky I think. I have no way of knowing for sure but would guess the high point for this hotel was before the first world war. That being said, it was most certainly worth the cost. The staff was helpful but being a tourist hotel I expected their English to be better than it... More
