“It does the trick”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2012

Pärnu is a summer resort, which explains, but does not excuse rather high prices for fairly basic rooms.

I stayed at this place for two nights; given the price and Expedia's hotel description I expected a bit more. The plain (not Scandinavian-design simple, though) property is very close to bars, cafes, and restaurants. The room was clean and spacious, but felt cheap. Breakfast was okay. There were only three TV channels--all of them in Estonian(?). Free Wifi.

Upon arrival, I was asked--a bit abruptly--to pay upfront for two nights; when I inquired about this, I was told the place considers itself a guesthouse, not a hotel.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2011

We had good 3 nights of rest at the Villa Artis. The location is excellent, the surrounding is green and peaceful. We enjoyed the short 5 min walk into the centre or to the beach. This quest house is snuggery, just as home, small and clean with interesting gallery of graphics and paintings presented in the lobby, breakfast room and other places. Free parking available in the courtyard. The staff was kind and speaks English. The room is simple furnished but rather comfortable with 3 national TV channels, free WiFi and private bathroom. No air conditioner, no international TV channels. The breakfast was good and so fresh.
Unfortunately, theses three days nobody cleaned the room and changed towels.
August 2011, travelled as a couple.
Could recommend as a budget accommodation and snuggery place.

Villa Artis is a normal two floor house, with several rooms and the breakfast space in the basement and is located around 15 minutes walking to the beach, in the peaceful quarter, but in not interesting surrounding . The rooms are rather basic, with private bath, also very simple arranged.
The breakfast was very common, with possibility to eat it in the garden.
The only one distinction of this place, is quite interesting gallery of graphics and painting presented in the breakfast room and in the garden. Apart of this, nothing memorable.

I enjoyed my stay in Villa Artis a lot! It has a GREAT location (5 min walk to the beach) and the prices are not too high compared to other hotels! It is also very modern and the rooms are clean and pure with no complaints. Also it has a great back garden for grilling and just enjoying and having a chat with mates.
I reccommend it sincerely!
