“It was good choice for one night”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

We spent here one night after ferry trip from Finalnd. Hotel is very, very good. Rooms were comfortable, bath looked nice and guy from the staff was very nice and helpful and everything was clean. I can say that we had only one problem with magnetic key-card to get access to the lift. It was a bit annoying but stuff guy repleced that one for the new one and it worked finaly. Anyways we were happy because of this hotel after a long driving in Finland and after ferry. It was good place to rest.

I spent one night there in August 2012.

Pros:
- very cheap
- really close to Tallinn old town (you get there in 10 minutes by foot)

Cons:
- you get nothing more than what you pay
- the rooms, though clean, could certainly be better
- breakfast is poor
- part of the staff (the bartender) was really lazy and impolite
- I had bad luck with sleeping. Some axxxxles got drunk and spent a good couple of hours (till 3AM actually) making noise just under my window..... I hope it's ot always like that.

I think it's good for a budget stay in Tallinn.

We stayed for a night to shop and dine in Tallinn. We didn't expect much, but this hotel managed to disappoint me anyway. The service at the reception was lousy and tired, don't expect a smile. I didn't feel welcome. The room was very worn out - I wouldn't have minded the stains on the carpet, that's OK for a cheap hotel - but my sheets were full of paper, probably from a napkin left in the washing machine. I wasn't very happy to find pieces of paper all over my black jeans, let alone sleep under the filthy blanket. Sleeping wasn't very easy anyway thanks to the broken bed, I had a broken spring right under my upper back so I spent the night trying to find a comfortable position. The walls there are like paper, dont go if you wish to sleep. We were woken up by two cleaning ladies who were screaming and fighting with each other in Russian right outside our door. Not very professional!! The breakfast was average. I did expect worse, though. The selection wasn't very wide but we were satisfied. The hotel is situated quite far from every place we needed to go to (harbor, centre), so we needed to take a taxi every time we wanted to leave the hotel. A taxi ride to the old town costs about 5 euros, so the location of the hotel wasn't a problem.

I've stayed here for 5 nights in May. The hotel has a great location, near the Old Town (only 4 minutes walking) and Viking terminal, what is really important for travelers to Helsinki.
The room was quite big and tidy. The breakfast was the same every day but it didn't disturb me because there was a choice between eggs, sausages, cheese, milk and flakes.

I don't strive for luxury, and can do with basic facilities, but on comparing this 3-star hotel with 3-star hotels in Spain, I should say that Spain is way ahead.
The thing I liked though, is a soup gallery in the afternoon. If you go out in the evening, an want to have a quick snack, soup is the best choice.

Great location for visiting the old town. The hotel check-in was efficient, the lady was very polite and courteous. Room was just what you paid for, clean ensuite shower room, plenty of room in the bedroom, with BBC world service, what more can you ask from a budget hotel.
