City Hotel Tallinn
Ranked #25 of 119 Specialty Lodging in Tallinn
Reviewed August 28, 2013

I stayed in the hotel in July with 2 other friends for 2 nights. Basically, we only slept there - meaning we did not have breakfast or use any services. Janne on front desk helped us with some maps and basic directions, and over all was very friendly. Her English was very good too. Room was rather small, but comfy enough for a short stay. Room was clean, and quite modern. Wi-Fi worked, that's important. Location of the hotel is amazing. It's just down the hill from the old town, and about 25 minute walk or 5 minute cab ride from the ferry terminal. If you're coming for 1-2 nights, I definitely recommend this place.

The location of this hotel is perfect - just downhill from the Old Town.
Tram station is 5 min away, close to the central railway station.
Take a taxi from the airport - it's only 6-8 EUR (depending on the time of day/night).

The room is basic: beds, armchair, table and TV. The bathroom is OK, even though I didn't like the plastic shower curtain, as I always manage to flood the floors :(
If you stay longer than 2-3 nights you need to pay for the cleaning and for the towels, so plan some extra costs.

Beds were too soft for my taste.

Didn't pay for the breakfast so can not comment.

There's a self catering machine in the hallway with basic toiletries, water and candies, if you get hungry ;)

The staff was very friendly and helpful.

It is clean and very well located (just 5 minutes walk to the Old town) but the place is very basic. If you find a good deal, then it is ok.

They have a bigger and much better hotel next door, and that is pretty much were you will check in and have breakfast and all that.

Nothing special, I will only be back here if I find a good deal.

Location was good, costs 10eur from the airport by cab. 10-15Min walk to old city.. Room was quite large and comfortable.
This place is not a hotel seems more like an apartment. They don't daily make up the rooms and provide new towels, sheets.
There is not reception inside the building in where the rooms are located. Check in is available in an other hotel's reception 50-100m ahead. It should have been informed before. It is annoying to walk back with a big luggage after getting off the cab.

Very conveniently located just outside the city walls. Was reasonably priced, however under the bed wasn't cleaned (bit dusty) and the bathroom had an odd smell as if there were plumbing problems. Otherthan that I suppose you get what you pay for.

The City Hotel Tallinn was a good, chep option in the centre of Tallinn. The rooms were basic, clean and warm, and we had a nice bathroom. The hotel has obviously been designed to be a budget hotel. You have to pay 10 euros to get your room cleaned, and 5 euros for fresh towels, but it was a good base for a few days.

Tallinn can be expensive, but our en-suite room here cost less than some private hostel rooms with shared bathroom.

The hotel is about 5 minutes walk from the castle and Kick in de Koek, and 15 minutes from the Town Hall.

I stayed here in January 2013. This hotel was a less expensive option for Tallinn. The room was very basic, but very clean and quite a good size. Overall it was a bit soulless (for the three nights I was here I never saw another hotel guest) but for a single traveller or those on a budget it's a good option. Check in and breakfast is done at the neighbouring Von Stackelburg Hotel which is about 30 meters up the road. Staff at the Von Stackelburg are quite helpful.
