“Central Clean Easy Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

Nice very centrally located Hotel in Tallinn.
Located on the main street that gets you into the center of town, a few steps from public transport, Viru Center Shopping Center and Car Park.
Big Rooms with lots of light. Very Clean. Big bathroom with huge shower.
Good choice of food at the Breakfats buffet.
A pub is located inside the Hotel with access from the street so it is always possible to have a drink or some food.
Well Mannered and caring Staf. Free WiFi

Vana Wiru has excellent location for exploring the Old city. This is main reason for overall 'Very good' rating. Standard rooms are basic, superior rooms are much nicer. We know because we were first placed into standard room, but after asking from the reception we were promptly changed into superior room according our prepaid reservation: much nicer room indeed!
Overall years of use are a bit visible in the rooms, but nothing too bad. Rooms are clean. Beds are a bit soft, but OK! Hotel breakfast is good, nothing to complain. Service is polite. Car parking is available in the hotel yard (15€ / night). Good base for exploring the Old city.

If you manage to get a killer deal - could recommend. Otherwise not.
Except location everything is pretty average here - breakfast, lobby, staff etc..

Few words about rooms:
- Very very basic, nothing extra
- Furniture is all 90s so just wait a decade and we can call it retro
- Socket at desk didnt work, had to unplug TV to get power to laptop
- Light at the bathroom didnt turn on
+ if something good, internet functioned well

The location of this hotel is great! It is situated at the edge of Old Town, so it is easy to get to without having to drag your bag through the cobblestoned roads.

It is clean and comfortable. Breakfast is adequate - I certainly recommend this hotel

If you just are looking for a reasonably priced hotel bed in Tallinn, Vana Wiru is the hotel for you. The hotel is situated in the old town and is closed to everything. But. This is probably also the most Spartan hotel I ever have visited. The room is extremely small with just a bed, chair, table and TV. Looking out from the window you have a brick wall 3 meter ahead. Not very encouraging. So, if you are looking for something more than just a bed, take another hotel.

I stayed one night in Vana Wiru and the old town location is excellent. The hotel sits right besides a preserved spot of the old city wall where local handicraft vendors sell their wares. Also nearby are the nice restaurants of Tallinn old town, Viru-keskus and Solaris-keskus for shopping and Estonia Theatre (opera).

My courtyard-side room was clean and quiet, albeit small. Minibar was well stocked. Breakfast was ok.

I'd call it a fabulous hotel for true Tallinn weekend. Great location near Vana Wiru gate in the Old Town. Spectacular view over the roofs of Medieval Hansa Town from top floor mansard windows. Private sauna and spacious bathroom right in the suite.
Perfect breakfast and service! Very welcoming and helpful staff. Free wireless Internet. Close to perfect! Deserves 5* if minor cons listed below are fixed.

Just minor shortages, not affecting the overall experience, though:
-no slippers and wardrobes
-poor wi-fi connection on the 5th floor

Room Tip: Room 507 was perfect. Rooms on 5th floor have spectacular view over Old Town roofs.
