“Location is the biggest plus”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2011

I stayed with my wife at Hotel G9 for 3 nights in July 2011. I have to divide my review into 2 parts:
1.) Positives
First and foremost location. Walking distance from anything interesting in Tallin including Old Town and Passenger Terminal (if you want to go to Stockholm or Helsinki).
The room itself was really basic, but you can count on clean bed and bathroom. If you don't mind student hostel feeling, you'll be fine.
Front desk was generally helpful in finding a safe parking space (details below).
2.) Negatives
Parking space is free, but unsafe and unsecure (it's a quote from the warning that can be found at the front desk). What it means is that there are occasional car windows breaking. Anyway it didn't feel safe to leave a car there. We spent quite some time looking for a good parking space and to save you the same trouble we recommend underground parking at the Rotermanni Kvartali. It is 10 minutes away and it has good 24 hours rate.
One other negative is aesthetics. It is not a nice building and you will be disappointed if you can't make an effort to close your eyes to some ugliness around and in the building.

This hotel is cheap: dirty and smelly entrance, two long flights of stairs to negotiate with luggage, very basic room that could use some new paint on the walls, tyny bathroom where water splashes all over. If you need to open a window, ask for a room on the back because the trams in the front are really, really noisy.
The location is quite good at five minutes from the old town but that is the only plus with this place which is more a hostel with private bathroom than a hotel.
We have used self serve hotels in Finland for similar prices but much higher quality.
Don't bother paying for the room breakfast - sandwich of white mushy bread with lots of butter and mayionnaise, non-dairy yogurt like thing, pretty bad coffee but this is cheap at 2 euros per person. I would certainly never to back to this place.

I stayed the the G9 for 4 nights the location is great only 5 minuites from the old town and several shopping center even closer. The staff were very friendly and helpful. There are no tea or coffe making facilits but these can be bought along with snacks from reception. For a basic hotel i was very suprised the the comfort of the room. The shower doesn't have a tray so the water can endup all over the floor of the ensuite but aslong as you donlt leave anything on the floor this wasn't a problem for us. All in all We had a great cheap holiday i wouldn't have gotten 2 days holiday near home for what we paid for the whole holiday

My partner and I stayed here for 2 nights, would not describe it as a hotel, no tea/coffee making facilies altough reception sold them for 1 euro, we found the location excellent and staff very friendly and helpful, the rooms were very basic but adequate, it was more like a hostel with en-suite, en-suite was a wetroom but shower was good, bed average, hotel was 3 floors up with no disabled access which might pose a problem for some,wi-fi was free but could be slow, overall though we were only 5 mins away from the old town which was excellent and 2 mins from local supermarket and shops, would recommend to anyone if they do not need frills just a base for a good break,cleanliness was acceptable, we were happy enough

3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2010

Was on city break and went to Tallinn after being in Riga . We booked up this Hotel/Hostel to make the trip a bit more affordable . If what your looking for is a place to put your head down at night and are not that fussy about mod cons then this place is ok. Its easy to get to all the attractions its clean and very cheap for a nights stay. If your the type of person who needs pretty rooms plush beds and a bit of luxury well this is not for you . I will give this my recommendation as all i needed was a warm clean room thats was easy to get me to see the points of interest in the city. Will give a extra mention to the Girls on the reception they were so helpful and gave me great advice on what and what not to do .
