“Convenient location, 4star standard”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012 via mobile

It is a great place to stay. Near the old city and viru square. The rooms are spacious and clean, lobby area is tasteful and breakfast is fine. Only one complaint really drunk local youngsters bothering guests.... Reception staff did not seem to react to that at all! Not to be expected in any high standard hotel anywhere in Europe This was the only disappointment

Firstly the hotel does have a great location, set mid way between the old and new town. Close to the port and across the road from Viru square where many bus services operate from. The hotel is a modern addition to the city and hosts a lot of conference trade which can make it very busy. As previously mentioned, it is better than the Viru hotel across the road where there did seem to be a lot of drunken activity in the reception area (along with a good proportion of the rest of the city come to that!).
Rooms were comfortable and very clean; beds were great! In fact the rooms were very well appointed. Initially had room 822 which overlooked an internal 'courtyard' so although very quiet had a view into the opposite corridor. After changing to 322 we had a room on the front of the hotel which overlooked the (noisy) road. Take your pick!!
Breakfast was busy busy busy, but offered a great selection of food and set us up well for the day. Staff were relatively attentive but like many other service staff in Tallinn, didn't enthuse welcome or helpfulness.
The 'spa' was ok although the swimming pool freezing cold and much smaller than the pictures depict.
A couple of times we went out and encountered groups of rough locals hanging about outside the front door which was off putting.
Not that we'd ever come back to Tallinn but if we did or had to recommend a hotel I think I probably would give the Nordic Forum the thumbs up.

Hotel is right across the street from Hotel Viru and only few hundred meters from the old town. Rooms are very modern and service quite attentive. I prefer this over Viru hotel also because there are less drunken tourists hanging in the lobby and bars.
Breakfast selection was very good and WiFi connection was free.
All in all, a pleasent stay.

A lovely hotel with good facilities. The hotel is situated within easy walking distance from the old town and all it's attractions. The room was cosy, clean and comfortable. The staff were extremely helpful. Breakfast was good with a wide selection The spa facilities were average but an added bonus to soothe aching legs/feet!
Would I stay there again......YES!

Modern hotel with good sized rooms, great relax center on 8 floor and in house spa wonderful. Breakfast generous and just a few steps away from the old town. Staff very helpful. Rooms very warm and the temperature could not varied effectively and windows could not be opened.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room at the back and do try the relax centre

We came here just for one night quick trip to see Old Town of Tallin. For such a trip this hotel is a great thing. It is just 100 meters from Old Town so the location could not be better. It takes just 20 minutes by bus number 2 from the Airport to get here and the price is just 1 EUR ... for the bus :)

Hotel looks like a modern property, the building outside is made of nice, colourful glass. Rooms are spacious, clean, everything you need is there. The bed is big and very comfortable. The room has a view on the busy street but it was very quiet inside.

Breakfast in the morning was very busy, lots of people coming in and out, however there is no problem finding a spot for us. The food was ok but it just didn't get me on my knees. Not something I would die for, just regular breakfast. I just remember that they did not have any pine apple which I love to eat for breakfast desert.

The price for the room was 140 EUR which is quite high for 4 star hotel during the weekend (saturday / sunday). The hotel is nice but during the weekend it sould be not more than 100 EUR.

Their location is excellent, just few steps from old city and harbour. Very convient for sightseeing. The service is good and friendly in all deparaments. Our room was nice designed, modern and clean. Despite the view overall the busy street it was also very quiet. Nice and new bathroom. Breakfast was good and with good choice of everything however there is no enough tables in the breakfast area, so it colud be crowded especially during the weekend's days.
