“You can't help but be won over”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

We booked a couple of nights here on an unbelievably cheap deal all on the strength of all the positive reviews on tripadvisor. When we first arrived we were a little underwhelmed at how basic the hotel appeared, however the place proved to be every bit as good as others have said. It's true to say that the room was fairly spartan but it was clean, presentable and, importantly when you have substantial sub-zero temperatures, warm. The beds were really comfy and the hotel was silent at night, providing very good sleep quality. Breakfast was more than reasonable with a good selection of hot and cold fare. Staff are friendly and attentive and the location is brilliant being directly opposite one of the entry points to the old town.
Make no mistake this hotel is certainly on the basic side of the accommodation scale so if you are looking luxury go elsewhere and pay the money. However, if you're looking for a good-value clean and welcoming place to stay then choose the Shnelli. We couldn't fault it and wouldn't hesitate to stay again if we're ever back in Tallinn.

Room Tip: The airport bus, service 90K, should stop at the railway station directly beside the hotel but we we...

We have just come back from Tallin today after spending 5 nights at this super hotel. We were not sure about this hotel due to some of the reviews on this site - however, we decided to see what it was like. We were really surprised - this hotel is modern and basic but is very clean and has all that you need. It offers great value for money and we felt that the negative reviews were very unfair. It has a great location with fantastic views over the park. The team that work there are friendly, polite and helpful. The breakfast is a typical european one - there was plenty of choice to be had. The hotel also has a lovely cafe where they serve excellent Estonian food - worth a visit (we recommend this). We had a lovely break in Tallin and will be returning to this hotel.

Room Tip: To get the best view make sure that your room faces the front of the hotel - there is noise from the...

GoHotel Shnelli is an ideal hotel for a stay in Tallinn. It is located just a minutes walk from the old town main square. There are bus stops at the front door and the main train station is just next door.

Our room was clean and comfy and not noisy at all considering we were looking on to a main road and train station.

There was a good selection of hot and cold foods for breakfast. Even cold breakfast potatoes which were delicious! The dining room is nicely decorated with travel memoirs and postcards from around the world.

The staff were always friendly and helpful.

If I visit Tallinn again, I will be staying here.

The location is excellent just across the street from the old town wall. The room was small, simple and clean, perfect for a short stay. Good breakfast and affordable. Would recommend it and would stay there again.

A good located hotel, with clean cosy rooms and railway romantic views from windows :)
Central railway station is just in 20 metres from the hotel, so it's very comfortable to reach Tallinn by train and stay there for a night if you have a transfer to airport next morning. Taxi to airport costs 7.50 euro.
There are warm floors in bathrooms. Breakfasts are nice and various.

As we arrived quite late in the night by train, this seemed to be a perfect choice - good price & great location. And indeed it was. Literally one step from the train station, across the street from Old town and few minutes ride from the harbour (taxi to harbour cost around 4-6 euros). Apart from a feeling that you are actually living in a train station (hotel is connected with the station building by a tunnel on the 3rd floor which you cross to get to the restaurant), the place is perfect. Simple, clean rooms and really friendly and helpful staff that helped to find our way around the city. A bit noisy if you are on the street side but the view is worth it. Free basic breakfast buffet and free wi-fi. Oh, and the bathroom has under-floor heating! A small treat after a long train ride in Northern winter.

Room Tip: If it's your first time in Tallinn, choose the street view and higher floor.
