“Good location, average room”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2011

Stayed there for one night.
I can't really say that It was a bad experience, but to be honest. Nothing that fancy.
Room was a bit run down. No heating. It got a bit chilly at nighttime.
What was a minus or rather a questionable security element was a CCTV camera, that was pointed right to my window.
Since I could open the window - I guess they needed to watch that window closely, so it wouldn't get lost?
Anyways, I suggest to pull up the curtains or atleast not get naked in your room while close to the window.

Service was acceptable.
Breakfast was nice - nothing too fancy, but well made and comforting.

All-in-all - not a bad place to stay, but I would suggest you look around.

is in really good location, old town is 10 minutes by walk or bus are just in front of hotel so if you travel lonely is really good; great have wifi free if you have a you device internet ready or in the hall there is a free pc; the single room is really basic and simple but for sleeping and taking a shower is enough; breakfast is simple too but you can find salt plentiful buffet breakfast(boiled eggs, tomatoes, herrings,cheese,ham) or cereals, corn flakes, and finally coffè black, bread and juices.

This hotel is a good value and 15-minutes from the old town (on bus and tram line). The rooms are small, but reasonable. The breakfast buffet is good, and the staff were helpful.

We stayed in this hotel for only two nights but were a little disappointed. The staff were extremely friendly and spoke perfect English. However when we reached our room we found it was a little grubby around the edges. In short it could have done with a jolly good clean. There were no coffee making facilities in the room food and drinks were only available during breakfast hours. The toilet and sink were clean but the bathroom was very dated. We found the room extremely hot and the bedding far too small to cover two adults. When we asked for a second pillow the staff were very helpful but couldn't find pillow cases! It cost 1 euro to book a taxi with reception to go to the airport. Breakfast was fine and the walk into the old town was short. We enjoyed our bread but would recommend you book a different hotel. On the plus side it was very reasonably priced.

This hotel is clean and safe with nice staff and a sufficient breakfast. And it's cheap. It's a 10-15 minute walk through an industrial/business area to reach the scenic old town, and the hotel is located behind an office block and next to some old warehouses. It is not a pretty area, but felt safe. The hotel is very basic, but clean and pleasant enough. There was plenty of hot water, clean sheets, windows that open, and the buffet breakfast was fine. If you can afford a place in the old town it will make your trip more memorable, but if you need a cheap base to explore Tallinn, this hotel will serve you fine. They also provide parking, which is probably not available in the old town.

This hotel offers incredible value, very affordable and very comfortable, if perhaps a little basic. It is about 10-15 minutes walk from the city centre and is easy to find. It is located off the main street in a courtyard but it is signposted. The entrance is off the main street and quiet so should be kept in mind if this is a concern, but I felt very safe and wouldn't imagine anyone having any problems. There isn't much in the immediate vicinity of the hotel but there are bars and restaurants a small distance away from the hotel on the main road to the city centre and also a 24 hour supermarket which came in very handy. All things considered, a very good location.

The hotel itself was very quiet, I never saw any other guests during my stay but it was March. I never took breakfast so can't comment on that. The wifi connection was excellent. The TV had a decent choice of English language channels as well as others in Estonian, Russian, Finnish and German. The rooms were well sized, the beds were very comfortable and the toilets were adequate with spacious showers. Cleanliness freaks may complain about a bit of dust but I was quite happy with the room. There is also a maid service, although on my first day my room wasn't made up. The bar downstairs consists of a fridge with various drinks including alcohol with seating in the lobby area.

Some of the staff where friendlier than others but generally I felt welcome. When arriving at the hotel I was asked for payment despite presenting an Octopus Travel voucher but this confusion was quickly resolved.

There were a few minor quibbles, but these felt trivial given the excellent value the hotel offers. Those looking for a comfortable but basic room at an excellent price in a decent location should definitely consider this hotel.

The hotel is hidden in a back-yard, which makes it very quiet and ensures enough safe parking lots. It's located some 20 minutes of walking from old town, which is ok, but the location itself is a little inconvenient as there are very few bars/restaurants nearby.
The service is absolutely willing to help in every situation.
During my stay (5 nights) the breakfast has been exactly the same, every single morning, which was pretty boring.
There's wi-fi internet connection, but it's only available on the ground floor, which is not very comfortable.
Overall, I'd stay at this hotel again if back in town.
