Only steps away from the main square, super clean rooms. Comfy bed. Large bathroom. Wonderful courtyard with lots of seating, twinkle lights and blankets for those chilly evenings. Breakfast was included and you could custom make your own. Lots to choose from as much as you like. I personally loved the crispy sweet bacon and crepes. Yum!! Johnathon (the manager) and his staff were super helpful and attentive. Everything from tips on where to go, what to eat and even to sending our postcards. Thanks everyone! If you like to stay where you are treated warmly and like family, you've found it.

We stayed in this great place for a night. The hotel is located in the heart of the old town. The staff was simply amazing! Jay paid special attention to a small child who was traveling with us. The hotel itself was great and there’s nothing to complain about. There’s also a great little shop downstairs of the hotel. I recommend staying here if you want a short getaway in Tallinn!

Visited with my daughter for the Christmas market ... this hotel was a stones throw from the market and town hall square and in fact couldn’t have been more central . Perfect location !! The quirky hotel is unique in style and just oozes Estonian charm ... room was off an outdoor courtyard which in the summer months I bet is lovely ... it was huge !! Well equipped with mini bar tv coffee machine hairdryer WiFi Elemis products in the bathroom .. robes and slippers . Room was lovely and warm after cold days wandering the town . Room was very clean and bed comfortable . Staff were super friendly and effecient and helpful ... Jonathon the general manager gave us so many great tips for things to see not mentioned in the guide book which were great and made our visit . Small shop in the foyer with great local gifts . Lovely bar for a night cap or a hot toddy after a cold day out ... and breakfast is served down in the beautiful cellar with great choice . Loved our 2 night stay wish our trip has been longer ... highly recommend and will definitely return

We loved our stay in the Merchant House, we are seasoned travellers and this ticked alot of our boxes, the rooms were quirky, ours was off a lovely inner courtyard. Perfect size and spotlessly clean. The staff were friendly and always ready to help. The hotel is centrally located just off the old town square. There was plenty on offer at the breakfast buffet. It was myself and my friend travelled for the Christmas markets, they weren't sure in the hotel if we were a same sex couple or not and had prepared two rooms, one double, one twin. That was incredibly sweet, I left my boyfriend at home, after seeing my pics he wants to come to Tallinn so when we are back we will be staying here in an lgbt friendly hotel that has everything going for it.
