Not a standard hotel but with a labyrinth to get to your room. I loved the corridors and the breakfast room. The breakfast itself is enough but nothing special, could be better. My experience with the staff was good, they were smiling and allowed me to check in before time.

It's a nice place in an old palace. They have managed to transform the stables into rooms but not soundproof and you can really hear "everything" from neighbors. The food satisfactory but not exceptional. Very good location in the center near the main square.

The worse hotel I have been. The rooms are very small. You can barely walk. The room at first floor are mostly without windows. Bathroom are very ridiculous. It seems to stay in a small cabin of ship . The breakfast is poor. The staff tried to help with another room. extra 25 euros for 30 minutes delay at checkout.

I loved it. Old, really different and interesting building. Before making the reservation, I saw critisism about staff behaving badly - well, as I thought, it's the Basic thing - when you smile, people smile to you. So very nice staff over there! Sure you can hear the music from the night club if you don't sleep but in my... More

Positive: The location is very good and it was also easy to find. Lots of restaurants nearby (i suggest the Depeche Mode bar!). The room was clean, hot water ok and wi-fi as well. Negative: Kind of noisy, thin walls. No elevator (room location a bit confusing). Breakfast barely ok. Overall a good compromise money-wise but do not expect a... More

This is a really great place that can only be made better by adding a lift. We were knackered each day going up and down the stairs but i wouldnt stay anywhere else in Tallinn. The hotel is really nice, old and has character. The staff were great and the breakfast was fantastic, i love fish, olives, garlic and cake... More

Thank God we stayed there for only one night! I'm not going to talk about location and cleanliness or breakfast, just about attitude of stuff towards their customers. We needed a place close to city center, so we could get more sleep, before departing early in the morning so we picked it because of central location. We arrived around 4... More

This is my worst hotel experience ever! It's three in the morning and I'm awake and hardly haven't slept at all because of the karaoke bar which closes around five in the morning. Just went and spoke to the front desk to get another room. Only available rooms left are with separate beds and only one of these isn't located... More

Honestly booked this because my late grandfather's name was Olaf and my warm feelings for this place ended when I walked in the front door. Arrived early from Helsinki ferry and dying to get in room early. Cost €20 extra. Given choice of 1st or 3rd floor room and chose 3rd hoping for a view. Not so much, but I... More

Visited Estnia for a city breaks,hotel handy for city centre, room was clean breakfast was fine,room was in an attic so if you we're Tom Thumb getting to the room would have been easy for an average size person you had to tilt your head. The hotel had lots of stars sit it will keep you healthy.
