“Good hotel facilities, great location”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

Stayed here for a 3 night break in Tallinn. Location couldn't have been any better, just off the main square. Booked a bunk bed room which was small and meant it was a bit difficult unpacking and getting ready with two people in the room.

Apart from the size of the room everything else about the hotel was fine. Bathroom was clean and sizeable enough, the breakfast was better than you get in a lot of hotels with more choice and decent quality. Reception was very friendly and the hotel cafe/bar was also very good and pretty cheap.

Would definately recommend staying here but would pay a little bit more than we did for a larger room, although the price we paid still made it excellent value for money.

Ideal location in the Old Town, a small supermarket close to the hotel. Very good Breakfast with many choices. Free Wifi.
The Room is clean and recent, but quite small. The room is also very noisy when close to the street, since the windows are old (not double) and doesn't close very well. Also, the sheets of the bed are short.
The bathroom is clean and recent, but also very small.

The hotel in perfectly located in the centre of the old town, an ideal base for all the major sights. The Café Madamoselle is really really nice and serves delicious cakes and drinks. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. Our room was not huge but it had everything we needed including a fridge, television , sofa and wet room. also it was overlooking the courtyard so it was very quiet. Highly recommended!!!

Room Tip: Room 312 was sufficient in size and was overlooking the courtyard and just a min away from the Café...

not one to really moan so I would like to point out a lot of positives about this place. First off it's location is amazing, I think you would struggle to find better. second it's all decorated very nicely and is very clean. Third the breakfast was awesome, buffet thing but really comprehensive. Forth all the staff were helpful and their spoken English was great. Fifth it is really reasonably priced so up coming negatives must all take that into consideration. Sixth it's got a pretty good restaurant attached so when we run out of ideas of where to eat the hotel was really useful.

ok moaning. So the room was really quite small, again it was really cheap so I wasn't expecting it to be massive and the historic nature of the building means quite restrictive but two people backpacking up baltics we were climbing over things to get around. Second the bathroom smelt bad, it wasn't that it wasn't clean I think it was a drainage thing. third some guests decided to use the gated off courtyard as a place to continue the party, at 4:30am, they did go to bed in the end but nobody said anything.

so 6 good things vs 3 bad, one of which was probably a one off. It's pretty good certainly not great.

Great location, friendly staff. Good continental breakfast. Be carefull booking the room, as we asked for a twin room and we got a very small bulk bed room, though it was easy to exchange it for a small fee.

This hotel is located in a 16th century merchant house in the middle of the Old Town in Tallinn. All rooms are different - a real design hotel! My wife and I stayed in a room on the sixth floor which was HUGE and very tastefully decorated. Friendly staff at the reception and a good breakfast. We will certainly be back!

The location is superb, but the first problem was parking the car. The hotel does not have parking facilities. The reception directs you to a public car park some 250 meters away, where you must buy a ticket in advance for a maximum of 24 hours. The machine claimed to accept 10€ notes but in fact took only 5€s and then with difficulties. Foreigners cannot use the mobile phone parking payment arrangements, we were told.
The receptionists were very helpful and friendly, which was the only other favourable aspect of the hotel apart from the location and general ambience, which was attractive and the fact it had a lift, although an old building.
We were initially offered a tiny room next to our friends' (at the same price) and the receptionist changed it as soon as we requested it. However the bathroom in both our rooms was hopeless (see our photo) with a miniature basin which was difficult to access and should degrade the hotel to a poor three star.
Breakfast was not inspiring - the worst we had in our tour of the Baltics in similarly graded hotels, nor was the staff in the restaurant particularly attentive.
