“Very simple, nothing special, not good value for the money”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

Honestly, we expected much more from the hotel, considering the price we paid and general price level in Estonia which is not as expensive as many other European countries. But there are not many hotels in Tartu and we did not many choices.
Very simple hotel, nothing special, little but clean room, small beds, small TV. There were no small refrigerator in the room – you could buy warm bottled water for 1,6 Euro which was standing in the table. There was no safe in the room either.
Small and very simple bathroom with shower - water was splashing all over the floor when showering. Our room was facing the bus station. The blind was too short for the window - so you get much light in your face when sleeping – not exactly comfortable. Breakfast was just OK, again simple and nothing special but ok to eat something. There were too many people and not enough places in the restaurant.
I used the spa for massage treatment – again, it was OK, but it was difficult to talk to the lady because she did not speak English well - just simple words. Her mobile phone was vibrating during the massage treatment.

Really good hotel for business trips. Free parking in the city center, central bus station right next door (good connection with Tallinn).
This is definitely one of the cleanest hotels I've ever stayed in. The room looks basic, but is very comfortable. Also, the bathroom is good - water pressure is good and everything is super clean.
The breakfast buffet has quite a wide selection. For this price Dorpat is a good choice.

Stayed one night in november. I booked a room for one person and got it but unfortunately with a small 80cm bed. Although the room was for one person I expected a bit more. Otherwise the room was decent and clean. The service in the reception was helpful and the breakfast average. I expected a bit more as the room was quite expensive for Estonia.

Room Tip: Remember to ask for a room with a large bed.

Bought a boat-hotel -trip from Finland and the package was very reasonably priced. The location of the hotel was good and the hotel itself as well as the rooms were fine, but nothing more. The breakfast was good, but in my mind quite far from excellent. All in all, good value for the money.

Room Tip: Ask a room that faces the river.

Went with family on South-Estonian trip and one place we staied was Hotel Dorpat in Tartu. Made reservation beforehand.
On arrival we had surprise for kids, just small soap and shampoo but that made their day and was really nice from the hotel.
During the whole trip that was only hotel cared about kids and even the beds were made already when we arrived, no one other bothered.
And of course for kids very important breakfast, it was good and kids corner made it perfect, eat, play, eat, play and parents could also relaxe more. Central location and free parking. Recommend

Room Tip: Family rooms are actually invo rooms and have huge bathroom

Very good location (city center, near shopping mall, bus station, cinema, theater, food market etc). Nice rooms, floor heated bathroom, good views (if towards river/town). Excellent breakfast, the best I've had in hotels! Ask about the free morning swim in the pool nearby (Y)

Room Tip: If possible book the room with the river view (business room?), very nice!

Overall - it's a good price/quality balance hotel in the middle of Tartu center. However some things I didn't like as being motorised quest.
Positive: located in city center, just close to main city sights, reasonable equiped rooms ( as for hotel category ).
Negative: small parking - it's requires obtain voucher from reception; food in hotel restaurant overpriced; location - not so easy access by car if you not familiar with the site.
Would probably use it again, if have a chance to be in Tartu.
