We booked 3 rooms at the Metropol back in July 2012 for a 2 night stay on New Years Eve. Having never been to Estonia, let alone Tallinn before, this booking was a complete stab in the dark. We read into the Metropol on Trip Advisor, and as accommodation was being booked up at an alarming rate, we plumped for it. To be honest, its not the prettiest hotel in the world, but who cares about the outside really!! Check in was quick and painless, and the staff were very efficient. The room was bigger than we expected, with a good sized spotless bathroom. As this was not a holiday, but more of a 'jolly', I didn't really expect too much for the small price that we had paid, so we were very pleasantly surprised. We didn't eat at the Metropol, but a lot of people did, and the food looked very nice, in a buffet style. I can thoroughly recommend the bar though! The local brew, 'A le Coq' is a very palatable lager, and also on draught was a lovely pear cider, both at reasonable prices.
All in all, the Metropol is a well placed hotel, only minutes from the city centre, and moments from the docks, from where we caught a ferry to Helsinki on New Years Day.
The staff, people and party atmosphere in the Metropol were great, and come highly recommended.
