While the room for two for one night was cheap, I expected a bit more. 1. the room was hot, and the only way to get it a bit cooler was to keep the window open. 2. while the bathroom was huge, and there was a big hot tub, the smell of mold was overpowering and made the place feel... More

We stayed in Hotel Starest for a few days in December. The hotel is 5 - 10 minutes away from the centre by taxi which is 5-7 Euros in the day time and 10-15 Euros after midnight. We didn't get the bus as we are unfamiliar with Estonia and relied on taxi and friends to transport us from the hotel... More

I had a very bad experience living in this hotel. 1.too far from the city center. 2. walls are damm thin and that day the neighbour's tv was playing whole night keept me awake. 3. the breakfast was limited with the variety. 4. The staff was not fluent in Russian/English. Would not reconsider it in future.

My wife and I stayed at the Starest recently on a business trip to Tartu. I must say at the outset that it is fantastic value for money. The rooms are clean and reasonably well equipped. The free wifi worked well and the bathroom was spotless, with plentiful hot water. We carry our own travel kettle and cups - needed... More

Very happy having stayed with my family at this hotel for 2 nights. This hotel is just some minutes away by bus from the city center (busses run every 5-10-15min, depending on the time of the day and are cheap --> 24hrs ticket 2,50EUR) and even less from a lovely little beach by the lake (water always warm in summers....

Simple, good, clean...only breakfast was quite poor, but everything else - great. Ofcourse its not for those VIP customers, but for me - it was just great stay in Tartu. And the price were more than suitable.

Stayed there 2 nights in July´13 when exploring Tartu and the surroundings. Rooms are very simple but you have all the basic thing that you need for an overnight stay. Rooms are in average size, beds and shower are ok. Breakfast was poor but you could use the kitchen and make your own coffee and sandwiches. Free wifi, free parking.... More

I stayed at hotel Starest a few weeks ago. I think that the location isnt so bad. Its private, away from the city noise and I liked it. Rooms were simple, not fancy but good. Price is also very good. I recommend it to people who dosent want something fancy and just want to relax and rest.

The hotel is very simple - just a place to stay overnight night. The room and the bathroom were clean. The food is very simple, although we never left hungry. There was good wi-fi connection in the room. The personnel was always very kind and helpful. It is located near the outskirts of the town, but since Tartu is not... More
