Sokos Hotel Viru was for long the only "western" hotel during the soviet period. Today there are lots of new hotels in tallinna, but the old Viru has still maintained some of its old charm.
It is big and sometimes a bit noisy with youths from Scandinavia having a good time with cheap drinks, but the atmosphere is quite jovial. It is true that sometimes the lifts don´t all work, or the plastic key won´t open your door, but the help is near.The breakfast is quite good with bacon and eggs and all that with lots and lots to eat.
Estonian Opera is worth visiting, very high class singers.
