“Disappointing menu and rooms need an uplift, lobby area nice”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

This hotel stands out as nothing special. It hardly meets 3 stars chain hotels standards. Best thing is the hotel s proximity to nice lakeside views and airport, and lobby bar area. Service at reception was ok but the bar staff had a member with a very strong attitude problem. Not the kind of place you would like to hang out for more than a night. Tried the cheese plate and the cheese was of poor quality, as was the tacky presentation of the dish.

This suppose to be airport hotel - located few minutes walk away from TLL. But it also very convinient for travellers with car - in case you need to stay overnight passing Tallinn or for business purposes, which doesn't require very central stay. Free hotel parking is considerable plus, compare to hotels in more central parts of Tallinn, charging from 3 to 20 EUR for parking per day. Also large supermarket is located 100m away from hotel.
Positive: free parking, large and very clean rooms; heated floor in bathroom, choice of toiletries; good breakfast selection, A/C could be simple switched off.
Negative: shower issue. It's first time in my life I found in hotel ONLY 1 soap/gel dispenser, which might be still acceptable - but it's located not in shower corner but close to the sink ( !? ). While taking a shower, you need continuously put your hand out of the curtain to get another portion of soap... Also shower corner consists only of curtain and is quite small even for average size male as me. if shower issue would be fixed - would be very good hotel.

Hotel might not be best option for city visit - there are more suitable hotels in city centre, but it's highly recomended for traveling with car. Will stay here again.

I had just spent 3 nights in the rural area of Estonia and it was so nice to sack out here for a night. Quite a bit nicer than where I had been staying. You have to put things into perspective folks. This is Eastern Europe. I walked to the mall next door to browse that night and walked to the airport in the morning. Very convenient.

Booked via booking.com for family room, arrived to find they had no family rooms, and they were expecting 1 rather than 3 children with us. Bar closes at 11pm. Had a meal first night in hotel restaurant. Starters and main courses were brought to us at the same time, waiter looked dumbfounded when asked to bring the mains after we'd finished our starters. We were then refused any desserts (asked for 2 slices of cheesecake) because the kitchen had closed 4 minutes ago (10pm). No management on site as far as we could tell. The staff seemed unable to make any decisions without referring to middle managers who did not return their calls. Some staff were moderately helpful, but all were unsmiling and it seemed that everything was too much trouble.

Room Tip: Avoid the back of hotel rooms - loud gurgling noise from gutters when it rained, gutters seem to be...

Stayed here for a night before heading further east into Estonia for a wedding. The hotel is within walking distance of the airport and the staff were helpful and efficient. Price was reasonable and it's only a short taxi ride into the centre of Tallinn if you want to explore further. Another reviewer's comment about light streaming into the rooms early in the morning is a fair one, but on balance I'd be more than happy to stay here again as it was clean, convenient and comfortable.

Our friends flight was delayed and needed a room late at night so we called into the Hotel to see if they could help out, the girl on the desk was very unhelpful all she kept on saying was that they only had 3 business rooms available at a very high rate as it was a business room. We managed to get a slight reduction but not enough to warrant a brief overnight stay.
The girl suggested we try another hotel and gave us the name of their local competition??? We went to the other hotel and were treated very well.

Hotel Ulemiste I have stayed with you on numerous occasions but will not recommend you again

To start of with the positives, the hotel is walking distance from the airport terminal. With my trolley close to mid-night it was less than 5 minutes walk through an area which felt safe to walk trough even at that hour of night. The hotel looks modern from the outside but the rooms are a bit tired. The pillow in the bed were small and soft. The biggest drawback to me come in the morning when the bright sunlight came right through the closed curtains to wake me up at 5:30. Decent hotels should have curtains that block the light. Once awake I could also hear the planes about on hour later. It may depend on which side of the hotel you are, but in my room the airport location was clearly audible.
To end of with some positives again, the breakfast was good and so was the free WiFi, but next time I am in Tallin I will look for a different place to stay.
