I booked this because of the pool and sauna as well as the location near the old town. I was sorely disappointed. At reception you are met by a very grumpy man (one of the several). I had problems with my digital key and after i was sent on a couple of trips up and down the stairs to sort it out, still no apology or anything just grunts.
The sauna is not signposted and if you find it in the pool changing rooms you might be unlucky like me and find it full of russian army-types. Not very relaxing.
The bath in the room is not much better ... the plug doesnt fit properly so bathtime is strictly time-limited.
The hotel guide in the room is really a list of rules of varipus types. Nothing too unreasonable when you read them but this approach says a lot about the attitude to customer service. I think i'd describe it as 'soviet'.
I planned to swim here .. in fact its the main reason i booked it. However i cant because i brought my swimming shorts and the rules are no shorts, trunks only. Not that i was told this beforehand.
The location is close to the old town but the local roads are sketchy at night. Im not easily concerned about that kind of thing but the nearby main road and park had some distinctly undesirables in it and the back road it badly lit and there are a few dodgy types around.
The bathroom is great but the room is a tiny double ... if i open a suitcase in the only place i can, i cant open the door very well or use yhe chair at yhe desk.
Overall ive stayed in a million times better places in tallinn for only marginally more. Avoid this place like the plague.
I hope the breakfast is ok in the morning.
