A big hotel, conveniently situated, good standard, just enough for a short stop in Tallinn between the sailing in and out. Gives good access to the old town, various restaurants and near by shopping facilities in the town. We stayed there for one night on our cruise from Helsinki with our Danish friends.
The rooms we booked as part of the Viking Line cruise were small but who wants to spend hours in the room when there is just limited time available for something else. However, the reception nicely offered us bigger rooms of almost double the size at the the additional 20 euro/room but we did not considered it applicable.
At the ground level, there was direct access to the Viru Shopping Mall. Amarillos restaurant and bar was also nice for quick bite during the day and night cap at the end of the day. Breakfast hall was sooner a hall than restaurant by nature. Obviously en-heritage from the old CCCR times when planned and built. Breakfast itself was good with plenty of choice and varieties. Service in the hotel as part of a Finnish hotel group was to the expectations, fluent and of good standard. There was nothing luxurious but adequate as for our need for the hotel in this case was.
