“Perfect location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2014

No-nonsense hotel, perfectly located within a walking distance from everything you might need to visit while in Tartu.

Big spacious room, with a huge TV, very decent bathroom, and a filling and varied breakfast, served in a very good looking restaurant room.

There are tons of restaurants, coffeeshops and shops within a five minute walk, as well as the university, and town hall square.

Good location, 1 minute to town hall square and 2 minutes to Jaani church and Tartu University main building. Ok hotel with all hotel services. Very nice service at reception. Nothing spectacular in the rooms but nothing missing either. Ok beds with double pillows. Bed covers are a bit worn out. Bathroom could have better protection from water splits from the shower. Ok breakfast, yogurt and cereals, eggs and pancakes. Ok coffee. Would be better if omelette is made from fresh eggs, natural yogurt with natural oatmeal added to the selection.

staying here for second time.friendly reception helps with good tips, ambiente downstairs quite nice (small river running below stairs) and restaurant right in the basement. prices over the average off Tartu centre (that's why I prefer Vassillissa)..
room average, looks like the 90s build, but You sleep well..

Room Tip: 3rd and 4th floor

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

The London hotel is situated direct in the center of the old town with many restaurants and shops around.
We had a really spacious room which has been quite nice but the bath room would need a renovation soon. The hotel staff was friendly and pretty helpful. A bit negative was the breakfast as things like scrambled eggs and several plates with cold cuts on the buffet have not been refilled for over 30 minutes.

This hotels strength is the staff, especially those on the reception desk, many a so called exclusive hotel could learn lessons from these guys.

The hotel is fine, comfortable and clean, the location is great and central. It's also a problem as my room on the 3rd floor at the front was quite noisy......

But good wi if, shower that worked, and an excellent breakfast, luggage storage and so on

I would go back, Tartu itself is a lovely city with unexpected features like the statues!

We were in this hotel just one night. Location is excellent, close to the city hall and the centre of Tartu, perfect to explore the city. Rooms are big and we recommend to take also the breakfast while booking, because it is excellent, including herrings and smoked salmon, some of the specialties of the area.

Amazing staff, airconditioning, and renovated rooms make this a solid good choice for couples to business guests...

However, at 132€ /night I expected something ... More ... From a 4 star in tartu it would've been nice to find a surprising awesome feature somewhere but sadly it wasn't to be found.

Personalized greetings in room, candies on pillows, interactive Tv's, robes, finer soaps and special breakfasts are what make a hotel have that edge but here we found simply good nothing special at all :)
