Baltic Hotel Vana Wiru
Ranked #48 of 86 Hotels in Tallinn
Reviewed September 3, 2013

I stayed one night in Vana Wiru and the old town location is excellent. The hotel sits right besides a preserved spot of the old city wall where local handicraft vendors sell their wares. Also nearby are the nice restaurants of Tallinn old town, Viru-keskus and Solaris-keskus for shopping and Estonia Theatre (opera).

My courtyard-side room was clean and quiet, albeit small. Minibar was well stocked. Breakfast was ok.

I'd call it a fabulous hotel for true Tallinn weekend. Great location near Vana Wiru gate in the Old Town. Spectacular view over the roofs of Medieval Hansa Town from top floor mansard windows. Private sauna and spacious bathroom right in the suite.
Perfect breakfast and service! Very welcoming and helpful staff. Free wireless Internet. Close to perfect! Deserves 5* if minor cons listed below are fixed.

Just minor shortages, not affecting the overall experience, though:
-no slippers and wardrobes
-poor wi-fi connection on the 5th floor

Room Tip: Room 507 was perfect. Rooms on 5th floor have spectacular view over Old Town roofs.

Located very close to one of the city gates, this hotel has everything that a traveler needs for a very reasonable price.

All sites of the city are within walking distance. Actually, starting at the hotel, it is possible to do the walking tour of the old center in 5 hours. If visiting all the museums, more time will be needed.

The breakfast is included and is good, with some local goods. The hotel wifi on the lobby. It would be nice to have it in the rooms.

The room we got was big, with nice bathroom and big windows. The curtains are thin, so the room does´t get dark. Since our trip was during summer, we got plenty light.... Use sleeping mask if you like to sleep in the dark.

The hotel rents segways. It is fun to ride them.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the back. Too much noise in the morning.

Location, location, location. It's perfect. It's close to nice restaurants in the old town. We had our room in the fifth floor. The only minus was that the room was very warm during the night. There was no temperature control (except for opening the windows). Other than that the room was spacious, and the free wireless network worked well. We had massage at the hotel and it was very nice. I can recommend the four hands massage. The complimentary breakfast was also nice. We'll come back to this hotel when we return to Tallinn.

Room Tip: Rooms in the fifth floor are very quiet. We could not hear any noise during the night.

Not worth 4 stars though, but rather 3. The room we got was small, but was very clean and had a big window. Room got very warm in the night/early morning. Beds were ok. Breakfast was not that good, ate there one in five days. Hotelbar was the best thing about this hotel, besides the location. It's big and have a good selection of drinks. It also has an entrance straight to Viru street and you can just go through the bar and into the hotel. The hotel also has a sauna + jacuzzi which we took advantage of twice. Its lovely and relaxing, but a bit expensive if you're only two persons. 25 euros /hour. Recommeded hotel!

Synes ikke hotellet er verdt 4 stjerner, men heller 3. Rommet vi fikk var lite, men veldig reint. Sengene var helt ok. Frokosten var under middels god. Hotelbaren hadde egen inngang ut mot gågaten Viru street som var veldig enkelt og greit. Baren var stor og god. Hotellet hadde også en sauna + jacuzzi som vi benyttet oss av to ganger. Deilig, men litt dyr om man kun er 2 personer. 25Euro / time.

Room Tip: Rooms on the main entrance side are quieter, especially in the summer. If you don't mind noise t...

This is the second time we've stayed at this hotel and love it. The location is excellent for walking all over the Old Town and it is close to many good restaurants and nightclubs. The complimentary breakfast has a lot of selection with several Baltic items included. The free internet worked well.
