“Excellent city hotel for international traveller”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013 via mobile

The staff are very friendly and helpful and speak excellent English. Rooms are good and well furnished but noisy at front due to passing trams. Easy walking distance to old town and modern shopping centre.

This is overall a nice comfortable hotel and all staff were more than helpful throughout the stay. The food here is superb in comparison to other hotels, certainly near the top of hotel food that I have tried. Its somewhat annoying that breakfast only starts at 7am. A lot of business people will have left before or at 7am so its a bit ridiculous that the hotel should fail on this one thing. My room was comfortable.

Comfortable hotel, modernish style, clean rooms, good views (got a room from the 8th floor). Great location next to Viru Centre and Rootermanni quarters. Sauna and pools nice, breakfast veeeeery good. Safe choice, would stay again.

Very good location! Right next to pretty much everything! The rooms are clean and they have modern decorations. Breakfast was very good and in general everything worked. It was verygood value for the money.

Stayed for 3 nights at Nordic Forum with a friend for a girls weekend away in beautiful Tallinn. We were there for Estonian independence day, which may explain why the hotel was so busy.

The hotel is in a good location, a 5 minute walk from the Old Town Viru gates, and 2 minutes from the city sightseeing hop on hop off bus. 

Hotel is decorated very well - stylish fireplace on the left as you walk in and a nice bar and restaurant. Pool and spa area on top floor is a good feature of the hotel, although it is small. Unfortunately we didn't get chance to use these facilities as they were very busy the times we tried.

Our room was on floor 8, the top floor which was well serviced by three speedy elevators. Our room was also nicely decorated, but there were no kettle/tea/coffee making facilities in room which was disappointing. Though the most disappointing feature of the room was the see through glass panel into the bathroom. Anyone on the toilet or in the shower is highly visible to anyone else in the hotel room. I think the hotel should provide some sort of curtain or screen.

Breakfast was of good quality, but always very busy. Every morning we struggled to find a seat, and so sat on a vacant dirty table. Seats were so hard to come by other guests had to come and sit on our small 4 person table. The final morning we ate breakfast in the bar area, as the restaurant was being refurbished. Not sure why as it didn't need to be redecorated, can only hope they are reconfiguring to include more seating.

The hotel arranged pick up/drop off service to the airport which we paid slightly more than if we'd got a taxi, but was very convenient.

Nordic Forum is a good hotel and offers value for money, though the bathroom screen issue means I would not stay here again.

Great location and really nice looking rooms. Fast check-in. SPA looks empty in pictures but really crowded in reality. Smart-TV in room for music and mocies. There are even loudspeakers in the bathroom. Minibar with big selection of stuff. Hotel is next to old post office bulding and this building will soon be demolished so maybe there is disturbing construction work upcoming.

Great location ten minutes from airport by car €7.80 we had no problem with any rip off taxis as reported by others. Hotel is right on the edge of the old town and new parts of town alike both really easy to get to on foot. Spa area is very nice, really nice pool, sauna steam room and jacuzzi and a bar which is unusual but a nice addition.
Gym is small only 3 pieces of equipment, but had the necessary runner, bike and stepper. Room very nice lovely comfy beds very quiet and clean. Breakfast good lots of choice to meet all tastes from american pancakes and bacon to fruits yogurt and croissants. Lobby bar also very pleasant.

Room Tip: High floor
