We stayed for 5 days during Christmas 2012. It was almost the only option to get the hotel in Tallinn that is not too expensive, located in the center and not a hostel type.
When we entered the room, the bathroom trash was full of used condoms and the floor was covered with black long woman's hair. We through the trash packet away and cleaned the bathroom.
Room lacks any good ventilation, so it becomes dry because of heating, so we opened the windows. The look outside is on nearby buildings, so no any good view on the city.
Beds are not very good for sleeping.
This hotel is convenient because of its location. Breakfast is cheap sausages with no meat inside and artificial egg omelette, not recommended to eat it for 5 days.
Instead, Restaurant serves good food.
The hotel stuff looks depressed and does not smile never.
Reception works Ok and fast.
The hotel is full of drunken Finnish pensioners, especially in the evenings.
If you ask taxi in the lobby, it comes in few minutes, but you need to pay by cash and they take each time different prices. We visited some place in the center, once it took 7 euros, another time 10 euros..
They do not use counter. Taxi drivers check were you go. If he does not want to go your short distance, he can pretend he is another taxi not just called by reception.
Anyway, the hotel is Ok because it is easy to book and good location.
Not recommended for families with kids.
