“Very nice but saturday night disco rumble”
Reviewed April 22, 2012

This hotel is situated very central in the picturesque old town of Tallinn. The building is a restored bank from Tallinn's golden age before the first world war. Many Art Deco details are preserved. Our room was quite large and of good hotel standard. We stayed the night between Saturday and Sunday, and unfortunately heavy sub-sonic noise from three nearby discos/nightclubs came right through the walls. Reception staff was wery professional and friendly, and they handled the parking of our car with care and precision. The location is really good, right in the pedestrian part of the old town, your city stroll starts and ends right there.

Room Tip: Avoid Friday and Saturday if you are sensitive to night noise. But check with reception first, as th...

This hotel is situated on the corner of 2 streets. One of them is full of nightclubs. The bass music starts at 11:00 pm and goes on all night. You can't sleep at all. During the weekend some of the corridors of the hotel are packed with drunken youngsters sitting on the floor (singing and shouting). The horror! Unless you go partying yourself all night long!

My room was shabby (1 person). Two pairs of windows don't close sufficiently. A lot of drought during the night. The central heating is a small electric fire hanging on the wall behind the curtains. The bathroom ventilation makes a lot of noise.

I didn't feel save in this hotel at night. There are also 2 locks (why?) on the door and the fire prevention notes are frightening.

The breakfast was excellent and the staff was helpfull.

Room Tip: Don't book a room on the nightclub site of this hotel.

We visited Tallinn in June 2011 and loved every minute of it. The Old Town is so full of character and there always seemed to be something going on (although this may have been exaggerated as Tallinn was the 2011 European Capital of Culture!) We had grand plans for our 5 days which included, amongst other things, a trip to Finland but in the event we spent the majority of the time exploring the Old Town on foot, Tallinn cards in hand, punctuated with multiple drinks and nibbles stops along the way.

Hotel Barons certainly made such lazy exploration extremely easy as it is situated in the very heart of the Old Town a mere 40 - 50 yards from the Town Hall. The former bank is a grand looking building inside and outside and the old style lift is a wonderful focal point to the lobby area.

The dinners were included in the price which was a nice little extra. We agreed to give it a shot on the first night although our expectations were not high given that we had hardly paid a premium for the inclusion of food. As it happened, the food was more than adequate - laid out buffet style on the 2nd floor overloking the street and we utilised it most evenings.

The staff were very friendly and attentive; the additional extra of coffee and muffins in the afternoon was a nice touch and the rooms were comfortable, clean and spacious enough for two.

My only complaint was the softness of the beds as my back tends not to agree with anything less than a stiff plank of wood covered in a sheet. However, I tend to put up with whatever I am given so I don't know if the hotel would have been able to offer an alternative or provide a solution. I would also suggest that noise is a potential issue (although this may be true of any hotel in Old Town) but as we were generally out adding to the volume levels each evening I cannot add this as a personal complaint.

To sum up - go to Tallinn and do so before it becomes horrendously overrun with UK stag and hen parties.

The hotel has great location - just one minute from Raekoja Plats, the heart of Old Town of Tallinn. The price includes the breakfast and supper and the food in hotel restaurant is tasty and quite variable. The hotel has no its own parking but rents some places on the neighbour street, just 5 minutes on foor and something about 20 euro per day.

The only problem for me appeared that the room was too dark. It was not comfort to be in the room because the window was not big enough and the lamps made weak light. Maybe for person who prefer muted light it's OK.

As for the noise mentioned in some reviews here it doesn't bring any trouble when living on the 4'th floor.

We stayed there last week when the temperature dropped to -24c. The hotel and staff where very warm and welcoming. We upgraded to a standard room and where more than happy, especially with the underfloor heating in the bathroon.The hotel is within a few steps of the main square where there are plenty of pubs, clubs, wine bars and restaurants to suite all tastes. The food in the hotel was fine. As it was my partners birthday the day we arrived, a bottle of champagne was delivered to our room and we where offered breakfast in bed the next morning. The Barons have their own airport taxi which made transfer smoother too. All in all it was a perfect stay and we will definately be staying there again this summer.

Fantastic location right in the heart of the old town, staff so courteous, has it's own taxi which was great as they did the transfers for us. Rate inc, afternoon tea and dinner buffet, which meant our holiday was done on a budget yet in a four star hotel. Lovely, lovely lovely

Room Tip: as other trip advisor comments ask for a room on a higher floor to avoid any noise at night
