We stayed for 3 nights in a small room in the "annexe". Tastefully renovated, leaving the old beams exposed in places, to bring out the old detailing. Room small, but comfortable, with bathroom en suite. Very short distance from the central square, especially when you discover a connecting passage. Very good breakfast, offering local specialities. Will stay there again, should... More

The hotel stinks of cigarette smoke, even in the non smoking bedrooms where smoke drifts into the open window (necessary to open as there is no aircon) No smoke free outdoor areas. Stairs are steep - no lift so anyone with a mobility issue should ask for a room on the 1st floor. Breakfast is average - no fresh coffee.... More

No air condition and even with the window fully open and with to fans, it's still waaay too hot. The roof is so low that my boyfriend (1.80m ish) had to bend his head all the time. The personal in the reception wasn't service-minded at all. The wifi doesn't reach to our room (we live on 5th floor, without a... More

I had two nights in Tallinn and chose St Olav's as it looked stunning in the website photos in an historic, ornate sort of way and was close to the central square. Mostly I enjoyed my stay but were I to return I'd do things differently. The ancient floorboards are wonderfully traditional and evocative but if, like me, you're situated... More

At the first glance, it seems like a four-star hotel (red mat at the entrance, fancy chandeliers everywhere, well-dressed personnel etc.), but the moment we entered our economy room (after searching for it for a while...), two stars dropped put: The smell/odour/stink was almost unbearable and the smell was deeper in the bathroom (caused by the sewer?), there was no...

The hotel is in a classic style in the old building. The location of the hotel is great and in the very center of the old town. You can go every sightseeing conveniently. The staffs are very nice. Everything in the hotel is clean and the price is worthy.

We stayed at the 5th floor. The room was just under the roof. It was nice because the weather was quite cold. If it had been warmer the room would have been hot. Breakfast was good and the location too.

This hotel is in the perfect location, walking distance to everything in the beautiful Old Town of Tallinn. The hotel is very pretty from the street and the lobby was welcoming. Unfortunately, the room we were given on the 3rd floor was unbearably hot with only a very small window, our first night there was very unpleasant. At 1:30am I... More

Had a very nice stay in this cozy hotel right in the centre of the old town. It is a very special place with nicely renovated rooms in a historic building. Safe room to store luggage, bicycles could be left in a closed off inner courtyard only accessible to guests. Thank you very much!
