My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in early June. The front desk staff was courteous, helpful, and spoke English. We booked a suite and were fortunate to receive a corner suite on the top floor with a view of the Old Town. The suite was very spacious. However, the furnishings are starting to show wear. The suite had large tall windows which were great for the views, but bad for outside traffic noise. The screeching brakes/wheels on the trams made it difficult to sleep. Also, there were no blackout shades which resulted in a lot of light coming into the room late into the night and early morning due to the summer’s long daylight hours in Estonia.
The bathroom was very spacious with separate shower, tub, and toilet. No washcloths were provided which is normal in some European countries, but surprising for a large business-like hotel. Also, the bath towels were disappointingly small and very thin. The shower head was a European “rain shower” which are normally nice, but this one was like a light sprinkle. The water pressure was very low and the water temperature did not stay consistent.
Free WIFI was available in the room and worked very well. Complimentary bottles of water were also provided. The hotel was close to Old Town with a short few minute walk to the Viru Gate.
The breakfast buffet was good and had a wide range of both hot and cold items (scrambled eggs, fried eggs, bacon, sausage, pancakes, cold meats, cheeses, yogurt, cereal, fruit, pastries, and more). The downside to breakfast was that it could get very crowded at times. One morning only one table was free and it was full of dirty dishes. I don’t blame the staff, but lack of staff. The breakfast staff was always hard at work trying to keep up and they did a good job of keeping the buffet stocked.
Overall we had an okay stay here. We would probably stay elsewhere if we ever return to Tallinn.
