This hotel is a former jail from the 19th century. It was opened as a hotel in 2007. The hotel is located quite near to Viking Line Terminal. We had the next morning a cruise to Tallinn. This time we booked the least expensive Classic Twin room for 116 euros. It was a flexible Marriott Bonvoy member rate including breakfast. Our room was stylish and quite practical. The biggest problem was the desk chair that didn't fit under the desk. We hit at least ten times our toes to it while walking past. The breakfast was pleasantly calm and the food selection was good. The reception staff was very friendly.

Everything works great together in this a former county prison from 1837. The prison was in function until 2002 and turned to a hotel in 2007. Still today it is very easy sense and see the history as a prison. Rooms are great with old fashion windows and 3feet thick walls. You can also visit two original “Dungeons” one as been used for groups and another for solitary confinement. Food is fantastic! Staff knows the history! We enjoyed :)

Moi Samuli, Kiitos palautteestasi. Mukavaa, että pidit hotellista ja siitä tavasta jolla se on vanhasta vankilasta muokattu. Nykypäivänä tänne on varsin ok tulla takaisin, toivottavasti tuletkin.

Excellent value for money. Great service and breakfast. Unique history and building. The decor was done respecting the history of the building and the two original cells were a really great surprise. We will indeed come here again.

One night staycation with my husband. Exceeded expectations, definitely recommended if you want a peaceful stay just a short walk or tram-trip from center. Unique building, very nice and warm service, cozy/luxurious/quite rooms (superior), great breakfast and very nice&warm service. Thank you, we'll be back 🤩

We went there as a couple. We selected this hotel as it is a unique ex prison building. Very interesting small details all over the place. Rooms were Ok. A bit warm rooms despite we had the thermostate as minimum.
