“Loved the Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2009

Stayed here for two nights and thought the hotel was wonderful.
If your looking for a very modern hotel this is for you.

Our room was on the 18th floor with good views over the city. The room was perfect with a very nice bathroom with a large walk in shower and seperate bath.

Please note that the hotel does do twin rooms even though they do not mention this on their website. WE had to book a king and then phone them up to switch to twin room.

hotel is about a ten minute walk to the old town, 5 mins to shops and 10 mins to airport by taxi.

The bar on the top floor was very modern with great views and great staff. The mens toilets even have great views.

The swimming pool was good and again the sauna has great views from its floor to ceiling windows.

Overeall very impressed by this hotel.

We had a pleasant couple of days in the Swissotel Tallinn just after new year 2009.

Can't fault the place at all. Service was fast and friendly - nothing too much trouble.

We loved the espresso/coffee maker in the room, which was a great touch.

Everything was spotlessly clean, and chamber service showed attention to detail - tidying up toiletries etc. The bathroom was excellent - large bath, separate shower and large sink. Beautiful mosaic tiles and frosted glass walls between it and the bedroom.

Hotel is a quick taxi ride form the ferry terminal and a 5-10 minute walk to the old town, which felt safe (but cold!)

We couldn't fault our stay at the Swissotel and would certainly recommedn it if you're after an international hotel in Tallinn.

  • Liked — The room was great. Lavazza machine a great touch.
  • Disliked — Nothing.

I visited the Swissotel Tallinn Dec. 5-7 with my husband. We were immediately impressed by a very inviting and stylish lobby as we stepped thru the main entrance. There was a bit of queueing at the registration but only for about 5 mins.! We were assigned a perfect room at the 22nd floor with a VERY nice view over the Tallinn city. The bathroom was gorgeous! There was a bath tub AND a shower. It was very spacious and the mosaic was beautiful....golden brown. The beds were comfortable although the pillow was too soft for me by hey - I could've easily gotten a new one - I´m sure - from the housekeeping, but chose not to bother.
We also ordered food from room service and it was perfect. Waiting time was exactly what they said it would be (about 30 minutes) and all the food was delivered to us on a very stylish tray with a candle light on it. Romantic. On that specific day it was Finland's Independence Day and as the room service guy brought the food into our room we were watching the national broadcasting from the presidential palace. The room service guy was very polite and wished us a nice Independence Day!
The hotel is about a 5 minute walk from the old town as well as the Viru shopping centre. Oh yeah, the breakfast was fantastic as well. The only thing really, that I was missing, was a hand shower next to the toilet.

  • Liked — Spacious rooms, excellent customer service
  • Disliked — Soft pillows, lack of hand shower next to the toilet

STL_Swissotel, General Manager at Swissotel Tallinn, responded to this review, January 19, 2009
Thank you for choosing Swissotel Tallinn, Estonia and for taking the time to share your experience regarding your recent stay with us.



Your comments and feedback are greatly appreciated and welcomed by us at SWISSOTEL Tallinn, Estonia and shall serve as motivators for our team to continue striving to meet and exceed our guests’ expectations.



I am pleased to advise that the hotel offers a pillow menu in each guest room, featuring seven (7) different styles. As for the hand shower next to the toilet, we acknowledge that such is offered in many hotels in Northern Europe. However, at the time of design we opted to forego such feature.



Once again, thank you for staying with us and we very much look forward to the opportunity of welcoming you back to Swissôtel Tallinn, Estonia.



Yours sincerely,



Michael Koltes

General Manager

We booked a room on the executive floor with access to the lounge. Everything was just excellent. Great rooms, bed and bathroom. Lounge was perfect and the spa was beautiful, tho the sauna wasn't working which was really the only disappointment.

Stayed here for 4 nights including the weekend. Was given a high floor as I think requested it when booking on their website. The view looked towards the old town and included a nice view of the Nevsky Cathedral. The old town itself is a 10 min walk away, but this is a decent walk through the newer part of town including a large shopping centre.

Check-in was efficient and friendly, overall all the staff was excellent; always having a smile on their face and providing a polite greeting regardless of time (including 5am after staying out all night!)

The room itself was fantastic; very spacious although oddly shaped, with modern scandinavian furniture. The bathroom was large as well, with separate bathtub and shower with a decent amount of amenities. The bed was very comfortable, although the LCD TV could have been slightly larger.

Room cleaning was efficient, especially considering this was done upon request in the late afternoon on most occasions as I slept in very late.

Tried the restaurant on the top floor 'Horisont' for dinner one night. The food can be best described as modern European. It was decent fare although very pricey - more than anything else you're paying for the fantastic views of Tallinn from the city's highest vantage point. To get this without paying for the food, you can try the adjacent bar which has a reasonable atmosphere with prices that match any other bar in Western Europe.

Overall the Swissotel is a fantastic place to stay - I managed 4 nights and don't have a single complaint which is extremely rare for me. The well appointed rooms, the excellent staff and service, as well as location all combined with reasonable price makes this a top choice in my opinion.

Fantastic hotel with a good location. You can walk to the Old Town in 10 minutes. Spacious, modern and elegant rooms and public areas. Friendly and smiling staff. Breakfast is fantastic with a large choice of food. Nice touch with a chef to cook your eggs to order.

We recently stayed in Swissotel for two nights. We booked two rooms for our family; the childrens (10 & 13 yrs) room was connected to our room. They offer nice packages for families - the price for the two rooms was very affordable (considering that it is about the same, that we have previously elsewhere payed for a mini suite, where the kids sleep in a sofa bed).

The rooms very extremely stylish (≈ art deco, but not that decorative) and comfortable. Particularly the bathrooms were stunning, with black stone & italian glass mosaics (see the picture). Views over the town were magnificient. The rooms were very quiet - no noise from street or the corridor or the neighboring rooms.

The breakfast was excellent. The choice is not very wide, but I would say it is carefully chosen. We also tried the Cafe in the lobby. Their selection of cakes is mouth-watering. The restaurant in the top floor, however, is not open for children (at least in the evening), so we did not visit the restaurant. Instead, we ordered some "night food" from the room service. It was excellent, and the selection is good.

The swimming pool is in the 11th floor. It is a nice idea, as the views from the sauna are great (certainly different from the lakeviews in our own cottage sauna)!

The staff was perfect. They also gave us a good restaurant recommendation. We dined at an italian restaurant called Gianni and had an excellent dinner, enjoying beautiful environment and attentive service. (They flambeed the Crepe Suzette beside our table, when requested.)

I would say that Swissotel is great value for money! And luxurious experience!
