“Good tranquil guesthouse in Tallinn”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2010

If you wish to be away from the throngs that the ferry boats from Helsinki and Baltic Sea cruise liners discorge in Tallinn's lovely old town, Poska Villa is your place. The near by local bus or tram will take you to old town for 25 krooni.

The breakfast is hearty and nicely served. Our "yellow" room was large and adjacent to a shared refrigerator in the hall. Poska Villa is located on a good sized plot of land in Tallinn's leafy Kadriorg residential district abuting the park of the same name. It is a fifteen minute walk through the park to the Gulf of Finland. Peter the Great's castle is close by.

The only disadvantage we found was that the street corner is busy with traffic and the glare from a street light outside our window came in due to the lack of heavy curtains or draperies. Heat would be a problem in the summer due to the western exposure of the room.

All in all this was pleasant stay next to the Self Help and Advisory Center for Senior Citizens, Estonia's largest NGO of this nature.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2007

My family and I spent two nights at Poska Villa, and two nights at a different B+B in the heart of old town. Poska Villa is in an interesting neighborhood, its an easy tram ride, and there is a lovely inexpensive cafe very close, a large grocery store about a 10 minute walk, and its possible to walk to a bus stop for the airport. The neighborhood felt safe, and the B+B itself was comfortable and charming. We were fed a generous and delicious breakfast, including a cooked hot cereal that was a local food.

My only complaint was that the pillows were lumpy.

  • Liked — Lovely location in a real neighborhood.

The Poska Villa is a wonderful environment for your stay in Tallinn. the ladies who run the villa and cook your breakfast are always helpful. It is within walking distance of Peter the Greats Villa that he built for Catherine and within several blocks of the trollies. It is two blocks of a local grocery store. I will always stay here when visiting.

  • Liked — comfort
  • Disliked — only double bed in one room

Poska villa is a charming little guesthouse in the Kadriorg area. Peaceful, quiet, yet not too far from the old town. Staff friendly and helpful. A lot cosier than a hotel, and cheaper. Excellent value.

  • Liked — Cozy, felt like home
  • Disliked — Having to leave
  • Tips/Secrets — If you buy tickets for the hop on/off bus touring Tallinn there is a stop close to the guesthouse.
