“Perfect location, excellent place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

Modern, stylish and comfortable place to stay. The hotel has a nice interior and feeling to it. Stayed there for two nights and liked it a lot. Breakfast is really good and the location could not be any better.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

Our first impressions were that this was a well-located and impressive building, and the reception staff were helpful and efficient throughout our stay. We enjoyed the choice at breakfast - a buffet featuring a selectioon of hot and cold dishes - and the facilities at the hotel are very good.
A ten minute stroll takes one to the Old Town and other attractions.
Our overall review and satisfaction rating would have to be tempered by the fact that the traffic noise permeated the room in which we stayed - overlooking a tram line and stops - to an unacceptable level. If the windows in the guest rooms are double-glazed, it doesn't work effectively. We had stayed at the Monika Centrum in Riga for the previous three nights, on a similar floor and overlooking a busy road, with little or no traffic noise.
Staff at the hotel were very helpful, offering guidance re early buses to the port and when we did check out at 06.40 to get the bus for the Helsinki ferry the receptionist very kindly (and unexpectedly) offered us a "small breakfast" as a group had just left and this had been provided for them. We therefore enjoyed coffee, croissants, etc., before going out into the rain - the helpful young man also made fresh coffee for us as the group had emptied all the coffee pots.
Seeing the rain, he also offered to call a taxi for us - customer service at its best!

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room!

Stylish and comfortable hotel right in the city center. Room was modern and clean and we loved the great and versatile breakfast buffet! Friendly and helpfull staff and the Spa was a pleasant surprise.

Room Tip: Rooms on the top floor (8th) are close to the spa.

Just got back from Tallin after a 4 day stay. The location of the hotel is excellent. It is situated on the edge of the old town but also within walking distance of shops and even the harbour [ at a stretch] . The rooms are modern large and comfortable - probably the most comfortable bed I have slept on in any hotel. As we were a party of all women friends on a girly break , the somewhat transparent screen in the bathroom was a bit unusual !!! The hotel has good public areas, however we felt that the hotel bar prices were a little steep, particularly when you see the same bottle of wine in the supermarket at a quarter of the price of the hotel. However the breakfast was excellent and it was great to have the opportunity to sample some of the Scandinavian fish dishes. Great stay would highly recommend the hotel.

I stayed only 1 night at this hotel and wished I could have stayed longer. Great service, modern building, fantastic breakfast, .. The rooms are perfectly clean, the bathroom is impeccable and everyting was functioning perfectly. During the night, it was very quiet (well isolated walls) and the bed(s) were soft, resulting in a good night's sleep. The location of the hotel is also very good; close to the old town and various restaurants.

The location is great, very close to the old town. Rooms and public spaces have a nice Scandinavian design with some beautiful touches in the public spaces. The service was warm and restrained, as it should be. Breakfast was standard. Also very good value.

We stayed here for three nights from 7th Sept. Rooms were well designed, very clean and had really really comfortable beds. Excellent shower with lots of hot water and for once a powerful hair dryer (useful for us girls with long hair!)

The interior design of the hotel is beautiful with really good flair, we loved the 'yellow brick road' of the hotel corridoors and the semi opaque cherry blossom glass walls of the bathroom in our room. We were in room 344 which had a view to the side and was very quiet at night. My parents room overlooked the main road and they said that they didnt have any noise either.

We were so busy in Tallin that we didnt use the spa and pool but I hear they were nice. There is a free safe in the room and a small mini bar fridge.

The hotel is literally a 4-5 min walk to the old town and about 15mins by taxi from the airport (cost 7 euros by cab) Mind you on the way back we were ripped off by the black cab which cost 24 euros so I'd stick to the yellow or white ones - and always check the price beforehand!

The only reason we've deducted a star is the service at breakfast - its just painful! The food is good and a wide varied choice so that everyone can find something they like. However the restaurant is bordering on being too smail for the number of guests so between 0800-0900 it is just hectic beyond comprehension. The staff are not efficiently organised to clear tables fast enough and it can be chaotic. Having said that we always found a table and just cleared it ourselves but you could argue that you shouldn't have to do it. In any event it wouldnt stop us staying there again and we liked the hotel very much.

Room Tip: The deluxe rooms looked lovely but the standard ones are nice too!
