This is a really mixed review, I guess. We loved Tallinn, and enjoyed our whole stay. There is much good about the hotel, too. I will do the negatives first... Room: Tight on space. Apparently ours was an upgrade - not the smallest. But down my side of the bed I couldn't get my legs past each other. NOT spacious. The towels were the most threadbare I have ever had in a hotel. But the shower wasn't bad, and we slept ok. Breakfast: a bit samey, coffee not the best, excellent pickled herring, sad looking baked produce and staff. But we ate well and enjoyed it. Especially the herring. Reception: fantastic, friendly, helpful staff. Location: hard to beat. I love being at the heart of the action, and loved staying in the Old Town itself - and probably glad to also be in a quiet street! Overall: not bad!

I took the Viking ferry from Finland to Tallinn, so walking in 15 minutes and you will arrive at Fat Margaret Tower. The hotel is next to the tower. The check in was fast, the room was large and functional, the water pressure was good. Breakfast was fine, not a lot of choices, but it's acceptable. St. Olav's Church is across the street, so remember to climb the tower, the view is so wonderful. The hotel is less than 10 minutes walk to Old Town Hall/Square. I walked everywhere during 2 nights/2 days in Tallinn. The street has cobber stones, so wear comfortable shoes. You walk pass Fat Margaret Tower and take tram 2 to the park to visit KUMU (Estonia National Museum of Art). Buy ticket from the driver, cash only 2.00 Euro. You can walk back from the park to Old Town in 15 minutes, flat, and a straight line back to Old Town. I would highly recommend this hotel to travelers in Tallinn.

We stayed 3 nights in a twin room. The hotel is in a great location for the tourist attractions and for all transport links, harbour, trams, buses and trains. The staff were friendly and helpful. We had breakfast and it was just "ok". We paid a budget price as we only needed somewhere to sleep and didn't plan on spending alot of time in the hotel. The decor of the hotel is very tired and overall the hotel is in need of some TLC.

We have spent here a nice weekend. Room was not large but OK. Breakfast was also fine, only personnel at the breakfast was a bit lazy and everything took a long time. Generally a decent hotel near main tourist attractions.

At the northern end of the old town, yards from St Olafs Church and the Fat Margaret Tower. Just stayed two nights and my cheapest hotel break ever. Not five star of course but five star for value and location. The girls on reception extremely helpful at all time. The bed was comfy (pillows were awful-flat as pancakes, so asked for extras which resolved the issue the second night) and the curtains didn't close fully. Going back to the price i learnt to live with these imperfections quickly. Breakfast adequate and the breakfast room was very nice. Would recommend this place to others. No air con but wouldn't imagine that would be an issue in summer this far north. Our room faced out of the old town and when you opened the window there was quite a bit of traffic noise. With no leaves on trees we had a view of the Gulf of Finland. Seaplane Harbour was 20 mins walk from the hotel and would recommend this
