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 had to travel to Tartu unexpectedly and needed a cheap and nice hotel quickly. I remembered someone once suggested hotel Starest and when I had a look online, I saw that the prices were more than suitable and hoped that the service would be ok for that price For my surprise it was really great! The staff were really... 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

I recently had to stay in this hotel for one night and I must say - it's very decent for the price you're paying. I've been in hotels twice the price and they've been awful. I think it'd be especially great for people who are traveling around and who aren't looking for luxuries, but just a nice place to sleep... More

It all started when we arrived at the hostel. The administrator seemed to be completely uninterested in us. We checked in and went to our room, only to find that there were ants in several places in our room, in addition to the view from the window being upon (and I'm not kidding) a wall. So back to the reception... More

It reminds me more of a dormitory of a boarding school, rather than a hotel. Don't get me wrong - i stayed in two bed room with no extra fluff (e.g. sauna, jacuzzi etc). It get's the job done, if you need to stay there for a single night, but anything else than a simple stop-over is a bit too... More

We drove to that hotel at 3 AM due to the big problems with Russia-Estonia border crossing. We were very tired, and to our happiness, the staff was not sleeping at that time and gave us keys for rooms. The staying should be payed upon arrival not at the departure The shower is very simple but sufficient. The rooms are... More
