“Lovely but noisy!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2014

This is a brilliantly located hotel for the old town. It's lovely and clean and we really enjoyed our breakfast every morning (at the weekend it's served until 11 which was a lovely bonus after a late night out) but service isn't particularly welcoming.
Unfortunately due to it's central location it is right by some very loud night spots and the local taxi rank. Your room has ear plugs in the bedside drawer but even with those and the thick glazing it is still loud and the beat from a local club was thumping through on the first night :-( I probably wouldn't go back.

Dear SwissSooosi,

Thank you for your post!
I am sorry that you found the Old Town sounds a little bit too much for your taste. We are dealing with this concern constantly with our neighbours as well as the local government and some progress has been made time to time.

I hope you do decide to visit us again and find out that there is much more hidden in the Savoy Boutique Hotel than just the loud neighbours on weekends!

Kind regards,
Edith Mihkelson

We visited the Savoy Boutique Hotel for our wedding anniversary. I e - mailed the hotel for them to put a bouquet of flowers in the room this they did. The Savoy Boutique Hotel rooms could not be faulted light and airy the only problem being it tends to get dark very late in Estonia making it essential you closed the shutters. The staff could not do enough for you making sure you enjoy your stay you could even have Champagne and smoked salmon for breakfast if you wished.
Please keep up the good work.

Room Tip: Room 405 gives a view over the front of the hotel

It's hard to imagine that there's a better hotel in Tallinn. The Savoy Boutique Hotel is charming, authentic, and convenient. Located right in Old Town, the location can't be beat. It's a 3 minute walk to the Old Town Square and it's possible to walk to the far side of Old Town in about 10 minutes. The Tallinn Opera House is across the street as are numerous bus and tram lines if you're keen to explore "modern" Tallinn.

The hotel itself is authentic and charming in every way that a big, business hotel is not. The rooms are spacious, clean, and finished with an exceptional attention to detail. From the stucco walls to the granite counters in the bathroom, to the double-pane windows; everything seems to be outfitted with quality. I had a room at the back of the hotel, on the third floor, so it overlooked the rooftops of Tallinn (rooms at the front would overlook a little square). I had three large windows; all which opened easily to let in fresh air and the sounds of the city. Free Wi-Fi (at a good, reasonable connection speed), an in-room safe, plenty of bath gels and shampoos made the room perfectly comfortable. Housekeeping was fantastic and provided turn-down service late in the afternoon.

Beyond the room, the hotel had a great restaurant for breakfast (included in my rate) and a fantastic bar with outdoor seating. The breakfast in the morning was a full-spread; it would be difficult to find a fault with it. The staff were attentive, polite and helpful throughout the stay.

There really is no need to look further. The Savoy Boutique Hotel is a great place to stay if you're going to spend a few days in Tallinn.

Room Tip: Rooms 203, 204, 205, 206, 207 (and 303, 304, 305, 306, 307, etc.) have great views across a small sq...

Most enjoyable hotel on our Baltic Capitals tour. Nothing plasticy or chrome plated brashness of some chain hotels. Quiet corner of the old town with pavement tables in summer. Taxis available at the door. Buses 3mins walk. A cosy modern/old world charm of a boutique hotel. Highly recommended. Lucky chimney sweep statue out front sums up this place`s charm. Dont forget to rub his nose and buttons for good luck, local tradition. Worked for us !

Room Tip: Street facing rooms offer good late night people watching, Casino other side of square. Quiet even...

This is a lovely hotel. Great staff, location and excellent food. All the staff were friendly and helpful and nothing seemed to be too much trouble. They also have one of the best restaurants in town.

The Savoy Boutique Hotel is on the edge of the old town, within walking distance of most places. It is a friendly small hotel, with a nice gas fire to sit around on a damp afternoon.
The twin rooms are quite small but it had everything you needed.
Breakfast was nice - with lots of choice.

Perfectly located on the edge of Old Town Tallin, this boutique hotel offers a very comfortable place to stay when you're exploring the city.

Nice breakfast with a view of the square, and you'll be ready to wonder around town, always knowing the hotel will be close by. You can walk pretty much everywhere, but there's always plenty of taxis parked close by.

The rooms are what's expected from a hotel of this level, and the staff is very attentive and always ready and provide you with all the information or help you might need. Soon you'll feel at home at the Savoy.
