Hotel is in an excellent location for old town Tallinn, a charming hotel with character.
First the good : staff friendly, breakfast is lovely in a charming room, staff very courteous and friendly, lovely bar staff and prices not too high, log fire in reception gives a welcome atmosphere.
Not so good : no lifts and if room on third floor have to lug cases up flights of stairs, staff will help though. No room is the same which although quaint is irritating in that you are not sure if grade of room is as booked, we booked 4 deluxe (one up from standard) non smoking twin rooms last February for our Dec stay and one was allocated a suite (lovely) on the ground floor, one a family room on the third floor which consisted of a small double bed and a 'Z' type bed and as the floor was being renovated smelled strongly of paint, one was allocated a smoking room on the third floor and ours was a room on the second floor, all rooms had couches apart from ours which only had one armchair and beds were really close to wardrobe doors. Very small beds with small quilts, high ceiling rooms which gave a 'roomy' feel.
We had asked for kettles and mugs in each room (as these were apparently available) we had to ask again when we arrived and were given a small travel kettle each with no cups ! Would have been nice to have had rooms nearer to each other and of similar size.
Apart from the room variation we enjoyed our stay at this hotel.
