A great place to stay. Been here 4 times over a number of years. the rooms are always clean and well kept. food is excellent and all at a great price. Very close to the main square but you don't hear any noise.

I would recommend this hotel. Nice and clean room, comfortable bed, great staff and the breakfast was ok (standard hotel breakfast nothing special). The only thing I didn't like was that the tub was in the bedroom. Would have preferred a shower in the bathroom. One of my friends had room with a shower, so we all used her shower.

We stayed here just a week ago. The rooms we booked were not what we got during check in, so we had to go down to the reception and ask for better rooms. I would like to especially thank Mr Martii & Mr Priit who were very understanding and got us better rooms. They were great hosts, extremely helpful and... More

A warm greeting met me. The staff were so helpful and carried my luggage up two floors (and even to the taxi at the top of the hill when I left) without expecting a tip (although I did tip!). The breakfast is excellent and would suit all tastes and habits. The coffee is out of this world. At weekends, breakfasts... More

Charming hotel in the heart of the Old Town. Reception team were super helpful from providing assistance with luggage to providing information beyond normal tourist questions. Access to the hotel if you have a car is very limited due to the Old Town controls - the street is restricted access to only 06:00 to 10:00 - and parking nearby is... More

I have just returned from a trip to Tallinn 4th Aug. I stayed in Merchant's House Hotel for a very pleasant week On arrival I was checked in promptly by very helpful and friendly staff. As I have some walking difficulties, they gave me a very convenient room with very few steps involved. Thank you for that. My single room... More

The hotel has THE most fantastic location for sightseeing and the hotel offered a friendly welcome and good breakfast. Unfortunately our room (201) had no WiFi so we asked to be moved to another (205). This 2nd room turned out to be awful. There was no space either side of the double bed and only one chair to sit on.... More

We were in the Merchants Suite, which was very comfortable and equipped with a large free standing bath ( and shower attachment) in the middle of the room. A quirky and quite memorable variation on modern bathrooms in most of the hotels that we normally stay in. Very quiet; excellent wifi. The rest of the hotel facilities however were disappointing....

Hotels has no lift but a friendly bellboy handles the luggage up to fourth floor. One complaint, the madness on double bed too soft, by moving a finger the hole madness shakes, for a light sleeping partner too much.
