I have been to this hotel on two occassions. I enjoyed my stay both times. From the moment you step in the hotel, you are greeted with luxury and excellent service. Your baggage will be taken to your hotel room for you while you are being directed there. The rooms are decent-sized (we had standard rooms), around the average you would find in any other hotel in Tallinn (been to several there). The bathroom was very clean, as was the room. Beds were comfortable enough, and there was extra pillows in the room. Only fault with the room was that it was too hot, even though we tried to make it cooler with the climate control in the room. The problem was bigger during my first visit, when it was very hot and sunny outside. Our room was facing a construction site on both times, but as the rooms were on the upper floors, we didn't see or hear the constructions that much.
Our room rate included the use of Aqua and Sauna Center during its opening hours. You get a bracelet at the entrance and you lock your locker with it and you can buy drinks at the pool bar with it. The only little minus with the bracelet was that we didn't know during my first visit that you have to pay the drinks when you exit the Center, that you can't put them under your room bill. I wish it was mentioned before entering, as we had no money or cards with us, as we came down to the Center wearing the bathrobes. This won't be a problem as long as you know it. The prices in the pool bar are quite high compared to Tallinn's price levels. The spa itself is very beautiful, with different choices of pools and jacuzzis. There's a big movie screen that you can follow while you lay in the water on the "benches", but on a sunny day, you won't see much on the screen. There are also different types of saunas, and I found them all very nice. The experience was very calm, and the area has one wall-sized window to one side, which offers a lovely view and sunshine when sunny. During working hours, the spa has plenty of room, but there might be many locals there with kids outside the working hours. They arrange water aerobics there at certain times, and you can join them if you wish, but if you want to use the possible additional equipment, you have to sign up for the event and pay.
We also used the Wellness Spa facilities during both our visits, and we enjoyed thoroughly. I had many treatments (massages, pedicure, manicure, bath, facial) and I was very happy with them and with the staff. The salt room was much less than I expected. It was just a room with salt and you could lay down there on the seats in your bathrobe. After many treatments in row it was a calming experience, but thinking back to it, I wouldn't pay for it now. When waiting for next treatments, you can drink water with cucumber or citrus or have a cup of tea in the waiting lounge and listen to soft music, that was very nice. The outlook of the Spa was wonderful and modern. The prices are higher here than in an average place in Tallinn, but I was happy to pay more for this experience.
The hotel has few restaurants downstairs. We got stuck with the Russian restaurant Balalaika because the food was just too good to miss. Yes, it's a bit on the high side again, but totally worth every cent. We had lovely pieces of cake at the Cafe Mademoiselle. It is lovely to have a piece of cake with a special coffee (or tea) while sitting at the terrace outside, watching the traffic outside on a sunny day. We also bought several drinks from the Tapas Bar. They make their drinks in a very professional and older style. I would highly recommend!
I stayed two nights on both occassions, and I actually didn't step out from the hotel until it was time to go back home. I think that alone can tell everyone, how much me and my travel companions enjoyed the hotel with its services.
