“Close to old town”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Hotel is an old coverted factory except for the old photographs you would not think so. Short walk to old town and ferry terminals and trams The room we had was at road level behind original outer wall so it was dull in day time it was a reasonable size and clean Food was good and staff were good especially the barman who was very helpfull even getting a chair for an elderly guest from the dining room with being asked would reccomend this hotel

Room Tip: get a room on the second floor

This hotel was a nice find!! The staff incredible, especially the guy in the lounge named Heiko. The rooms were small, but immaculate! Very nice location to Old Town and the harbor and not too far from the modern area of Tallinn.

Great location, 5 minutes walk to the centre of the old town. Clean and friendly staff. Large room great shower. Only downer was not having tea or coffee making in the room. Easy access to ferry terminal. Highly reccomend the visiting the Seaplane Harbour Musem, best inter actives, Lembit submarine was facinating.

Fat Margaret is the great round tower at the north entrance to the old City of Tallinn. Fat Margaret and the haunting Memorial to the Ferry disaster--852 lives lost--when the "Estonia" went down enroute to Sweden--the Memorial is near Fat Margaret and the wonderful entrance to Tallinn. The Hotel has a delightful staff at the front desk (but make sure you don't inadvertantly leave anything in the room when you leave as you'll never see it again!--we forgot our Baltic Guide book!). Staff is friendly and very helpful.
We've stayed there on two different occasions and had clean, comfortabble--typically European--somewhat small and basic--rooms. Rooms in the old factory wing are much more interesting than the motel like rooms in the new, addition, wing where they tend to store bus tour groups.
Naturally, aside from the unique history of the building, the othr attraction is the ease with which the old city and its City Centre can be reached--DO BE WARY OF STREETCARS when crossing tracks en route to Fat Margaret. This is a nice hotel withing walking distance of the Linda Line ferry dock--just look for the tall, old, smoke stack as a landmark. Recommended
Breakfast is good and plentiful.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the Old Factory building.

Just got back from a 4 night stay at the PK Ilmarine Hotel and had a great time there. Hotel conversion is very unusual but it works. We had an inner room in which the window opened onto the hotel atrium but this is mostly glass so you can see the outside. It was a little noisy if left open at night with other guests returning but when turned on Air Conditioning with window closed this was fine.
Breakfast buffet was good with plenty of choice both hot and cold. Wifi was a little slow when we used the computer in the reception area but it was free and we were on holiday and didnt want to sit on a PC all day !
Bus( 90k) from airport drops you almost at the door of the hotel for just 2 euros each which was very easy to find and use. Hotel in great location to see all the sites in the Old Town and on Tram route and bus routes.
Good choice of hotel and good value. Just 2 points - bar closes early at 10:00 pm so no heading back for a nightcap after eating out and no tea/coffee making facilities in room. Shame to spoil stay with minor gripes.

Room Tip: Rooms next to road maybe noisy as main road but inner rooms fine with air conditioning on.

This hotel is well located to Old Town but with some deficiencies to consider. First for being located in the capital of a technologically advanced country their wi-fi service is horrible and very difficult to obtain a reliable connection. Second there isn't any guest control of the ventilation system and after reporting it to the desk without any results we just lived with an open window and hoped for the best with our allergies. The noise on the street side with the tram would have been intolerable. Finally, this is the second Domina hotel that we stayed in that had a malfunctioning drain in the bathroom sink. The staff is courteous and the breakfast buffet is very good.

Stayed at this hotel for one week in July room 321. There was a slight problem to start as we had booked and paid for half board and paperwork had not been received by hotel. Soon sorted by trainee receptionist. In fact all staff very friendly and helpful. Excellent buffet breakfast plenty of choice.
Rooms were very clean and comfortable, 3 course meal in the evening was superb and well presented.
Hotel just a few minutes walk from Fat Margaret, Tram line 1 for Kadriorg(lovely gardens and palace) and city sightseeing bus.(worth doing to get a feel of Estonia and its history) 90k bus from airport only 2 euro stopped just up the road Linnahall.
Old town beautiful looks exactly like the pictures,great views from St Olaves tower(232 steps), worth doing 2 hour free guided tour by local students.Wander round Rotermann area to see old and new working together.
On a rainy day visit Seaplane museum amazing place.
