The hotel is nicely located. Our room was in the backyard section of the hotel. I enjoyed the old atmosphere but the things I did not enjoy was the smell of mould in the room and thin walls. Luckily our neigbours were not noisy. The source was smell should be investigated as some previous reviewers pointed out the same problem.... More

This is a nice, old and quaint hotel set close to the main sqaure in Tallinn. Easy to get to all the sights in the city. Hotel is clean and tidy, only downside, quite noisy as it is close to a night club but in general very nice.

The bathrooms weren't cleaned and there was someone's poo in the toilet. The water was brown. The whole place smelled like mold and I couldn't breathe. The other guests had similar problems, and some guys had to change their room due to the mold problem. We also overheard a couple talking about how there was no electricity in their room.

Hotel full of history, clean rooms, but sometimes bad smell outside room in upper parts of hotel. Excellent location, nice breakfast. Much stairs and narrow corridors. But overall, nice experience and atmosphere. Good value for room prices.

I stayed at St Olav 3 nights and I would stay there again when in Tallinn. The hotel is perfectly located, right next to all major attractions in the old town and there are plenty of bars/cafés and restaurants just a few steps away from St Olav! My room was cleaned every day, the staff was more than friendly, the... More

St Olav hotel has good location in the middle of Tallinn old town. You can reach all the attractions by food. At Olav surprised us in a good way. It has very unique atmosphere. Its very old and unique. At the same time oldness means, that there is few bad sides, like small rooms. I understood that the cheapest rooms... More

We have just returned from staying at St Olav hotel. We enjoyed our stay here, it is a very quirky place. Our initial room was a standard double, it was on the ground floor entered externally via a courtyard. It was adequate, extremely warm. However we had a problem with the safe and the receptionist had to come and reset... More

We booked very late and due to the holiday season had very little choices left. We spent three nights in St. Olav and were quite disappointed: the soundproofing was awful and we could hear what was going on in the other rooms, there was no elevator so we had to climb the stairs to the fourth floor, the shower was...

I have stayed in this hotel once and loved it; however, while booking I noticed a good amount of people saying that they were put up at a sister property of a lower caliber. I disregarded that – my mistake. The location that they put us up in was the Olevi Residents. Mind you, they did not notify us that... More

It a hotel "with soul". Lots of stairs and corridors. Quite good breakfast. The woman in reception has never learned to smile or say good morning or just hi. The taxi from hotel to airport €15 (he did not turn on taxameter, ask for price in advance!) BUT the hotel is located in old town 150 meter from the town... More
