“Great location!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2013 via mobile

Very central location in the middle of the old town surrounded by z great bars and restaurants. Our room on the top floor was silent.
Rooms are old but kind of romantic and absolutely clean. Bed is very soft.
"Complimentary dinner" is quite terrible. They should not offer it at all... Breakfast is ok.

Barons Hotel is located in the old town of Tallinn, which is good. Location is a 4.5 out of 5, but that's about where the positive things end. Central location means noisy neighbors and even on a wednesday night the noise from the guests of Tallinns numerous nightclubs were annoying. Yelling and screaming until 5am.

The room is... murky with no real natural light coming in, and even though the bathroom was spacious and had a jacuzzi - the mold on the walls and around the windows kept me away from a relaxing bath.

Minibar was making a squeaking sound so I had to turn it off, and three of the rooms six lightbulbs were broken. Asked to have them replaced, which never happened. Breakfast was terrible. Bread was dry, ham and sausages was greasy and felt like they've been outside all night (I arrived at the breakfast 10 minutes after they opened) and coffee and tea water was cold. Bacon was uncooked and meatballs tasted rubbery.

I will not recommend Barons Hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: Get a room on the fifth floor, facing away from the main street.

We had reserved a triple room at the hotel, but when we arrived, they did not have one ready. So we waited some 15 minutes and got a junior suite instead. Very good and silent room, floor heating in the bathroom was a huge plus.
Bathroom (shower) was really not for longer persons (not over 175cm) -> it was placed under the sloped roof...
Beds and linen were ok, but the extra-bed was an old fold-down bed (that creaked a lot, only for children or light weighted persons).
Service was excellent and friendly and the location was perfect both for old town and to visit "outside the walls". Breakfast was nice and calm (not too crowded). Charming old atmosphere.

Hotel Barons is a few hundred yards from the central square in the Old Town and perfectly placed for walking around the old town of Tallinn, as well as for getting to the trains, trams and buses. Very comfortable hotel - our junior suite was spacious, clean and welcoming. All staff at the hotel were friendly and helpful, spending time to sort out bus routes and times. Great value with the room rate including breakfast (plenty to set you up for a day's sightseeing) and buffet dinner. If you are looking for comfort, value for money, friendliness and a warm welcome to the stunningly beautiful city of Tallinn, Hotel Barons is the place to stay.

Room Tip: We asked for a quiet room and got exactly that.

Great old bank building in the Tallinn Old Town. Parking (secure, pay) behind the next building. Great service, nice room (5th floor), dinner & breakfast included into the room bill. Food OK but nothing special. 2 min walk to the Raekoja plats!

Room Tip: Top floor was excellent; no traffic noise & no noise from the streets.

I was a bit worried about the comments on having been bothered by the street noise. Truth is that there is a lively pub right across the narrow street. Our room was not facing the street and that obviously made all the difference, since it was nice and quiet even though it was weekend. The service was appropriate and the breakfast buffet was a very positive surprise. Nice stay, we'll be back.

Barons is situated in the very center of Tallinns old town. It's a very old (build in 1910's) hotel with a nice feeling in it. You can see the history everywhere you look at. Service is very good. Breakfast as well as dinner is included in the price. Despite all good, I would strongly suggest you to choose another hotel for the weekend. Across a very narrow street there is a pub operating until 5 AM on fridays and 6 AM on saturdays. The noice of people shouting outside will keep you up for certain. Without the noice Barons would be perfect.

Room Tip: Rooms with the city view are facing a noisy pub.
