Pros - great location in Old Town, good breakfast buffet in elegant dining room, wifi in lobby, room was fairly spacious, hotel was charming in a worn way. Cons - young man at reception desk when I checked in ignored me at first then barely acknowledged me. Very hot in Tallinn and there was neither AC nor a fan. There... More

Wonderful location tucked away on a charming street near the puppet theatre and history museum. The staff were charming and helpful. The hotel was busy but the breakfast buffet was well stocked and staff were quick to refresh the coffee when it ran out. Particularly enjoyed the water with berry leaves, fruit and lemons. The atmosphere in the dining room... More

The location of hotel is great to explore Tallin. Price including breakfast is one of the best you cand find in this area. Breakfast is good with variety of products. You only have to know that this is an old and historical building without lift and with narrow stairs and hall. For young people is OK but for other people... More

Our family (2+2) stayed here for two nights. We liked the Hotel a lot: it definitely is not basic or standard place to stay. We had room in the ground floor in the garden and it was nice and quiet. Since it is a historical building, the history also shows in some places. The rooms were clean and unique -... More

St. Olav is perfectly located for a stay in the Old Town. People are helpful, and the rooms are clean. The buildings have their own charm especially if you like twists and turns to find your room. The breakfast is good as well. It is a touch expensive, but if you want to stay in a historic spot from which... More

To sum it up here rightaway, I simply do not recommend this hotel. The hotel is well located, reasonably new and tidy. That's what's good about it. The serious problem is the user experience that sucks. An example: we were given a ground floor room. I'm experienced enough traveler to avoid these because normally there's a high risk for all...

This is a lovely place to stay. Very quaint and traditional. Comfortable and clean. A perfect location within the old town. We felt very relaxed here . Would be nice to have tea and coffee facilities in the room and some curtains ! But other than this it was fab!

Very nice and clean hotel. Our room was 318 and there were no wall neighbors. So no noise was heard from other rooms. Only from the corridor was some noise registered. Breakfast was very good. The real old atmosphere like in old town should be.

Myself and my Russian girlfriend Maria stayed here 13-16 June in room 328. Firstly I would not add any photos as theres plenty here already. On arrival I was slightly disappointed as the exterior looked dated... However once inside.. oh my God. It is beautiful. Like an old English manor house. We made a game of who could locate the...

The location of the hotel is perfect ! Its in the middle of the old town and close to all attractions. The building is fascinating and beautiful and we got a room from the top floor with same old wooden bars, the room was nice. But big minus is that the customer service in this hotel is a joke...
