We had been on a tour through the Nordic counties. I have to say this hotel has been the nicest in our tour.
The decor of the room is modern done in cheerful yellow & red walls and blonde furniture. It's a step up from the other hotels. The room is pretty large - plenty of space around the bed. The furnishings are definitely upscale & befit a 4-5 star hotel. Everything feels pretty new. The beds are comfortable with down comforters. There's a safe in the room but ours didn't work. There's a large combination dresser & desk unit (spacious) with plenty of electrical outlets.There's free wifi & it's fast. Flat panel TV, coffee maker, iron & iron board are all in the room. There's a hair-dryer hidden in the dresser. There's 2 nice sitting chairs by the window.
The bathroom is done is pinkish white tile. It's good sized as well. The counter top is in white composite material. There's a nice towel warmer. They use the all-in-one body wash in containers bolted to the wall.
The location is so-so. Though it advertizes itself as "seaside", it's actually on a small inlet so there's not much view. The ferry to Talliin leaves from this inlet. There are a few ships docked in front though. It's about a 10 minute walk to city center - pretty easy walk. There's also a tram stop just outside the hotel.
The hotel is larger than it seems from the outside/lobby. We had to walk a long way from the elevators to our room.
We ate in the Italian restaurant Viola - it was OK, nothing spectacular.
