Interesting rooms, good service, nice facilities at the Kreutzwald. And the staff was very nice. That’s the good part. On the other side, it is a little hike to the Old Town area of Tallinn—probably 10 minutes along a pretty busy roadway. And the hotel is on a very busy, noisy street so make sure that you stay in a room that does not face the front. Even so, you’ll hear the cars and trucks rattling by all night. And my biggest frustration: The Internet is INCREDIBLY and FRUSTRATINGLY slow. The hotel provides computers—they are a little faster than Wifi, but they feature Estonian keyboards which I couldn’t overcome—so that is an imperfect solution (and yes, I know how to switch languages on keyboard inputs). Sixty-five minutes to download a 30-minute audio podcast. Come on. That is just absurd. This is 2011 and your country is part of the E.U. Breakfast: So-so. This part of the world isn’t known for great breakfasts. Kreutzwald doesn’t deviate from the median. So on balance, a mixed review.
And can I just say to hotel operators: All of your guests will have Blackberries, iPods, laptops and other devices. It would be SO nice if you had some easy-to-reach outlets so that we could plug in. They don’t exist at Kreutzwald.
Overall, I’m not sure whether I would recommend this hotel because I haven’t seen the inside of the competition. The Kreutzwald isn’t great but certainly isn’t horrible.
