We just spent one night here, with the main advantage being the great location very near the centre of town. The hotel is a little old-fashioned and the single lift a bit slow. Our room was adequate, smallish but fine for a night. Breakfast was included in the room rate and was fairly extensive. One thing to note is that... More

Good solid hotel - located in an older building - parking at the hotel almostnon-existant, as i had to park on the street. But that said, parking on the street is easy to find and my car was safe. Location excellent - about a five minute walk to the central square. Good hotel for pets. Staff excellent. Only bad thing... More

I stayed at the Barclay for two nights in October 2013. You can tell it was fitted out in the 1990s and hasn't had much done to it since - but that doesn't matter as everything is clean, well maintained, and done properly in the first place. Third floor room was spacious, nice big bathroom, didn't test the jacuzzi. Breakfast... More

Views from the hotel are to the park in the city center and opposite to the old church hill. The hotel is in walking distance of the Tartu bus terminal. Parking area in front of the hotel. The rooms in the third floor are nice, in the 5th floor it is very noisy (from rooms next door, due to the... More

I booked a double room to be used as a single and was given a single room on the top floor(this may or may not have been the fault of the hotel as it was booked through a third party). The hotel's public rooms were pleasant and the breakfast was ok .The room was clean but that is the only... More

This place is very close to the Old Town and is probably the most centrally located hotel in Tartu. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable. We were at the back of the hotel overlooking a green hill. The buffet breakfast was fine with plenty of choice. I would have preferred freshly cooked eggs to... More

It's located in the very heart of the Old downtown of Tartu, just few meters from the Town hall. That's the best part of the hotel. It's clean but quite basic - all furniture and decoration is cheap. The room however was not too small but the bed was. As I booked a room for single occupancy it might have... More

Tartu has small nice city center and the hotel is just few meters from that. That makes the good location, but the room was small with not so good disposition.

Clean room which had blackout curtains which is a blessing in Estonia in June. Lovely view of greenery from room. We asked for a fan as the room doesn't not have AC ans the weather was freakishly warm. Not sure but I would guess someone went out to buy one. If in Tartu again, I would stay here again.
