4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

The location is very good when you come by boat. Old town is ten-fifteen minute walk from the hotel. Hotel is clean and staff is very freandly. Very good service.

On the negative side: the air conditioner is noisy and there was smell of drain in the bathroom and the bed sheets is too short. After shower all bathroom floors was wet, maybe need shower curtain?

I would recommend this hotel to my family and friends.

The location is good, if you come by boat.It is easy to pull the bags to the hotel. The old town is a ten-minute-walk from the hotel. There are shops and restaurants nearby, too. The biggest liquor store in Tallinn is just round the corner. - On the negative side: the air conditioner is noisy and there was smell of drain in the bathroom.

Room Tip: We prefer top floors with sea wiev. The sea side rooms are cooler, too.

The location was excellent: straight in front of Tallink Silja harbour and around 5min walk from the big Rimi supermarket. Staff in the reception were really friendly, and made some effort finding the answers to our questions.

The room itself was modern and tidy. Only the bathroom was a bit outdated. It happened to be quite windy during our stay, and the window seemed to be some how broken because it was making a banging sound every time the wind hit it. Anyway, we slept well, it didn't get too chilly because of the window. Not even tobacco smell came in even if we were straight above the place where other guests were smoking.

I would recommend this hotel to my family and friends.

City Hotel Portus is well-located just next to ferry terminal D in the harbour of Tallinn. It is very easy to travel there also by car. A walk to city centre takes less than 10 minutes. Good service and very reasonable price!

Right across from the ferry terminal, good if you came in from Helsinki late at night. Clean, large rooms, good breakfast, usual selection. Breakfast room a bit small. Bar right there, you can have a beer with your breakfast if you like that sort of thing.
