The interior of the hotel could not be faulted - comfortable beds, attention to detail such as good quality toiletries, water & chocolate delivered at night, weather forecast given every night. However, the location is such that we were directly opposite a noisy bar with the room vibrating with the bass until 11.30! Like a previous reviewer, could not close windows, as no air con, and it was stifling. Eventually begged a fan from the staff and put up with heat. Unfortunately we were there for a Friday & Saturday evening, which meant the bars were at their most active, also late night returners in the early hours, which of course the hotel has no control over.
Why was the room painted battleship grey??
On reflection, it would have been better to have booked an hotel on the outskirts of Old Town, and walked in. Tallinn is pretty small, and most things can be walked to. We visited 2 museums - the Occupation Museum, which we found really interesting and which filled in the gaps of our history knowledge of Estonia. Also the Seaplane Museum, about 20 mins walk away. Spanking new, very imaginatively put together with lots of interactive stuff for kids. Worth the trip even if you're not really into boats!
