I was in Tallin for work and then checked in here for a couple of days to myself exploring the city. It's proximity to the Old Town is fantastic so it's a great base to come back to after a hard afternoons shopping, sightseeing and sampling of local beer.
I checked in early and had a lovely warm welcome in English. I was put in one of their newly refurbished rooms (20th floor) which wasn't huge but was finished nicely. The bed was comfortable, the view over the port / sea was brilliant, and the room was kept nice and warm.
I made use of the therapy centre with a back / shoulder massage with easily booked, reasonably priced and very effective.
The only downside to this being a huge hotel was the manic nature of breakfast and the difficultly of finding a sea during peak times.
Overall a nice stay at the hotel which helped towards a relaxing weekend in Tallin.
