We stayed here for 3 nights, on a visit to the Tallinn Christmas market Situated at the edge of the Old Town, near Far Margaret's Tower , the hotel is interesting and atmospheric - in the dining room there is a huge curved wall, and if you read the small plaque on it, it dates back to the 1370s. There is a curious curved walkway from the reception up to the lift, which is tiny. Our room on the 4th floor, was up in the eaves with a low sloping ceiling . Bed was comfortable, and the room had all the amenities you'd need for a short stay. Breakfast was adequate; not really orange juice, rather oranges flavoured water. Reception staff were friendly and helpful. They take a €50 deposit on arrival, against the minibar in the room; thus is refunded if you haven't used the minibar.

This hotel located conveniently: near from him there is Fat Margarita's Tower, building "Three sisters" and Cathedral Olivesti. You can get to the center for 5-7 minutes. The hotel is clean and not too expensive. The breakfast was fine!

The location is in the old town, a short walk to the town hall square, and less than 30 minutes walk to Tallinn harbor. If you have a carry on luggage is okay to walk from the ferry port if coming from Helsinki. But once entering the old town gate, you pulling the luggage into a cobblestone street. I book the economy room, but somehow we got an upgraded room. However, I wonder what does an economy room like...the place we got suppose the better one but is like a cubic room with twin beds, and the carpet is worn. In the room, we have free wifi, minibar, television, kettle, coffee, and tea, desk, wardrobe. The bathroom is so small that you can barely move. Small buffet breakfast included.

We stayed here for 3 nights. The best thing about the hotel is it’s location in the old town. It was only about a 5 minutes walk to the square in the old town. I knew the room was going to be small as I only booked a small room but it was smaller than expected. We had 2 single beds and the tv was above mine so it was impossible to watch. The shower was tiny too. We got to the hotel at 11.00am and the check in was quick and our room was ready which was a bonus. Breakfast was ok and what we expected. They could have had a better selection of cold meats and cheeses.

Was only in Tallinn for one night so required something cheap and cheerful... The staff were friendly and really helpful but the rooms were extremely basic and the bathrooms borderline acceptable, seen better bathrooms in hostels and the breakfast left a fair bit to be desired. That said the location is excellent and for less than £50 a night if you’re after somewhere with no thrills and no home comforts but as a base for exploring the city then the hotel will serve a purpose.
