From the second we walked through the door of this lovely hotel, we knew that we were in for a treat for our 3 night stay. We had the warmest welcome from Kasper who gave us a map of Tallinn straightaway and pointed out places of interest. Our room 108 was very clean and the complimentary water and chocolates, left in our room daily, were a nice touch, as were the weather forecast sheets. (how may hotels are so thoughtful?) The bathroom had luxurious toiletries, with hairdryer, magnifying mirror, scales, bathrobes and slippers - everything we needed.
The staff, who could speak English, genuinely seemed to want our stay to be as special as it could be. They were polite and efficient but also really friendly and approachable - nothing was too much trouble. They even ordered a taxi for our departure, carried all our luggage to the taxi and stood and 'waved us off'.
The hotel is in a perfect location - comparatively quiet, but close to the main square and other places of interest. The Old Town is quite compact and it's wonderful to stroll round and marvel at all the medieval buildings and Rapunzel-style towers, especially from the concrete viewing platforms. (Be careful when walking on the cobbled streets though - wear sturdy shoes!!) Tallinn is a photographer's dream with something to admire at every turn.
The breakfasts were excellent. There was a table spread with cold meats, fish, cereals etc but you could also order hot food, cooked to your liking, from friendly staff dressed in Estonian costumes. My husband kept enthusing about the pancakes but I particularly liked the jams and mouth-watering selection of fresh fruit. The décor was great with tables and shaped wooden chairs straight out of a fairy-tale. Providing daily news sheets in various languages was another thoughtful gesture.
We couldn't fault this hotel - the staff, the location, the food, value for money, cleanliness. We hope to return to Tallinn one day and can't wait to stay again at the St Petersbourg Hotel. Thank you again to Kasper and others who have given us such wonderful memories.
There is no lift so some may find the ground floor more convenient. However, the staff are so accom...
