“Lovely hotel in ideal location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

We stayed at the end of February 2013 for 5 nights. Having read previous reviews we were concerned about how cold the room would be but there was no need to worry as the large room was very cozy indeed. Being a side room it was also very quiet but that may have also been down to it being -14'C at night!! The hotels location is great, a 5 minute walk from the airport bus stop outside the train station, and a short walk to the Town Hall square and the old town attractions. Staff were very helpful and friendly,making some great recommendations for a day trips around Tallinn. Breakfast was good with some excellent fish dishes- salmon , smoked eel and sprats, lovely cut ham and cheeses.The only complaint I would have was the lack of black tea at breakfast on the first day, plently of green and fruit teas but no black. However mentioning this to the staff it was remedied for the next day - result!

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the side of the hotel, great mix of old brick stonework and modern flat screen...

3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

I'll start at the begining, the hotel was easy to get to from the airport (its a 5 min walk from the train station if you use public transport) and the taxi dropped us off directly outside.
The location is great in the old town a short walk from everything.
My room was at the front of the hotel and it was quiet (apart from the early morning bin men one morning) my brothers room was at the back and it was super quiet. Both rooms were clean and tidy, if not a little small, unfortunatley my room had an occassional smell of sewage from the bathroom, by brothers room had no such problem.
I had a super comfy bed, although my brother had a really soft bed with a dip in the middle which wasn't comfortable at all.

The hotel staff were really unfriendly, no smiles, no 'have a nice stay' at check in and no 'did you have a nice stay' at check out, in fact no one from the hotel spoke to us during ourwhole stay. We asked to see the sauna area and this was conducted without one word being spoken.

The breakfast was ok but not super.

The hotel is good value for money, but, would benefit from better service and because of this I would not return. The location is its selling point, central without being noisey.

Room Tip: Get a room at the back of the hotel.

Service was ok, Bed was one of the best i've slept. That's about it. Breakfast was bad, everything tasted like cardboard. Room had all the time an odor from bathroom. Stink like sewer. Good luck if you made reservation. I hope the stink is gone before you get there. There is also sauna/spa section but we didn't try that

We stayed in January 2013 for 5 nights. The situation is great- a 5 minute walk from the airport bus stop at the train station, and a 5 minute walk to the Town Hall square. The room wasn't large but had all we needed; a kettle was the only thing that was missing. Staff were very helpful and made some great recommendations for a day trip outside Tallinn.Breakfast was good with some excellent fish dishes- salmon , smoked eel and sprats (if that's your thing at 9 in the morning!!).The only complaint was the hot dishes - the fried eggs had been cooked a long time in advance of breakfast and weren't very nice. We got a great price off Expedia of around £50 a night but it is the off season, and the prices will be a lot more in summer.

Nice hotel located next to the old town wall. We got very spacious room with views to small square. Only minus comes from the smell of sewer in our bathroom. Building is very old but nicely renovated and decorated.

Clean well appointed, warm rooms. Not large but comfortable. Excellent breakfast buffet. Quiet location on edge of old town. Plenty of restaurants/cafes within minutes walk. No need for any transport to explore old town. Friendly helpful staff. Only complaint - mild drain smell in bathrooms (seems common throughout Tallinn); reception will provide air freshener. Overall very good value and would happily return.
