We spent 4 nights at St Petersbourg Hotel last month and loved it!
Firstly the location is brilliant, just a 2 minute walk from the central square and about 5 minutes up to Toompea for those fabulous views across Tallinn.
Our superior room was huge and the bathroom spotless although perhaps could do with a slight bit of updating. The usual satellite TV channels, only one or two in English though but not a problem if you are out and about. Free Wi-fi, as you will find in many bars etc across Tallinn which was great for us.
We didn't eat in either of the hotels restaurants but we did take breakfast which was of a wide buffet variety plus an option of cooked eggs, blinis etc if you wanted. The breakfast room was beautiful in old Russian style and the staff were dressed in traditional dress which I loved! All the staff were courteous, pleasant and very, very helpful.
If you get a chance make sure you use the hotel sauna which is a converted area in the roof. It was free every day up until 11 and you book for your sole use, is very well equipped with loungers, showers, changing areas, TV, minibar and some fab views over the city. A very nice touch!!
Our whole package with this hotel for four nights was £288, this included two transfers to/from the hotel and an extra 20 Euro for keeping our room until 6pm as we had an evening flight - excellent value for money and probably one of the best deals we've ever had in all the hotels we've stayed at worldwide. Highly recommended!
One tip for you, if you cannot get to a bank for the best exchange rate, go to one of the exchange bureaux and haggle for a good rate! We did this twice!
Enjoy Tallin and St Petersbourg, it's a wonderful place!
