“Good hotel at good price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012 via mobile

The purpose of our four day visit to Tallinn was to see the historic center of the city. The hotel was a ten minute walk from the old town and five min from the tram stop, so the location was great. At the same time there was absolutely no traffic noise, so, except from a few not so pretty houses in the neighborhood, the location was excellent for our visit. The interior was very modern, clean and aesthetic. The staff was friendly and helpful. So, for all the main issues, the hotel was a very pleasant experience. Compared to similarly priced hotels in central Europe, the breakfast buffet was slightly disappointing. The food tasted good, however, the variety was very sparse. Only one kind of coffee, the softboiled eggs were hardboiled to a green color, only two kinds of white bread, a type only good for toasting and some very very tiny rolls, the same two types of cut ham every day, the same three types of sliced cheese every day, no creemy cheese at all, no salt and pepper on your table, but then again, there were no cups, utensils, napkins or anything else on the table either. The ambitions for the restaurant were simply not up to par with the rest of the hotel. The TV in the rather small business class room was very small, perhaps 18". Forget about watching major international sports event. While Barcalona was playing Real Madrid, the only sports on the TV was billiard. Tried to keep updated on the soccer game via the wireless internet, but the signal strength was too week and the bandwidth too small to be of much use. While the negative issues were a tiny bit annoying, the hotel is still a good choice at a good price. So we would probably stay there again, if we went for another visit to Tallinn.

Good location, just outside old town, just a few minutes to the water. The breakfasts were good, Hotel is located near to the trams and busses. We were part of a tour group and the hotel certainly met our needs for tourism. Hotel was clean, staff friendly and helpful and multilingual. Sign on the building still says Domina Inn Ilamarine.

I stayed with friends for a long weekend trip to Tallinn. The hotel is located just outside the city centre and it will take approx 10 minutes to walk into the centre of the old town.

The hotel is comfy and clean and gave really good value for money.

Breakfast was included in our rate and was a welcome start to the day.

Worth staying here if you're looking for a good value stay for a few nights.

My daughter and I stayed at the Domine el Marine in Estonia from September 14-22. We were extremely pleased with everything--the rooms, restaurant, lounge, front desk, and even the beauty salon. Everyone was friendly, polite, knowledgeable, and attentive. Our room was clean and comfortable, and was kept up very nicely each day. The breakfast was tasty and included all of the food groups. We took advantage of the lounge each afternoon for a glass of wine and an easy chair to sit and relax and/or to read. What a pleasant experience all the way! The location was close to Old Town and to the ferry boats to Helsinki, so that we were able to walk most of the time.

Thank you so much for making our stay so very, very enjoyable.

Room Tip: We were on a street side but the car and tram traffic was not bothersome in any way.

Hotel is an old coverted factory except for the old photographs you would not think so. Short walk to old town and ferry terminals and trams The room we had was at road level behind original outer wall so it was dull in day time it was a reasonable size and clean Food was good and staff were good especially the barman who was very helpfull even getting a chair for an elderly guest from the dining room with being asked would reccomend this hotel

Room Tip: get a room on the second floor

This hotel was a nice find!! The staff incredible, especially the guy in the lounge named Heiko. The rooms were small, but immaculate! Very nice location to Old Town and the harbor and not too far from the modern area of Tallinn.
