“What a gem -”
Reviewed June 21, 2011

This little gem is in the most perfect position in a quiet part of the old town with no traffic allowed - ideal for walking and sightseeing - I took my 90 year old mother and we managed with no transport. Family run and full of antiques and old and quirky. We were given a uite with sitting room!! Very reasonable and friendly.

With my partner I visited Tallinn in June 2011. A reservation was made and confirmed by Olevi Residents for our stay, back in January 2011. They informed us 2 weeks before our trip to Tallinn that we could not stay because of "reconstruction work" and did not help with alternative accommodation. While in Tallinn we went to look at this place...which was open for business as usual and had no reconstruction work underway. On enquiry they offered accommodation for 2 people at a higher price than had originally been quoted to us.We certainly would not recommend this place to other visitors to Tallinn.

We booked a double room for period 6 -13 June 2011 back in January at a price of 70 Euros per night. We received confirmation e mail telling us our booking was OK. Then 3 weeks beore we were due to arrive, we received a very curt e mail telling us our bookng was cancelled due to 'reconstructon work.' We were given no advice or assistance in booking alternative accommodation. We eventually booked altenative accommodation at L'Ermitage Hotel. Out of curiosity, we visited Olevi Residents on 9 June . There was no sign of any reconstruction work whatsoever. We then asked if there were rooms available and were told that double rooms were available at 103 Euros. We strongly suspect that Olevi Residents did not honour our original booking because they decided to re-sell our room at a higher price. This is shabby and deceitful behaviour of the worst kind. I strongly advise potential visitors to think again before booking with Olevi Residents.

Staying here at this very moment, and keen to let fellow travellers know what this place is all about...dissappointing.
Booked this place using the Lonely Planet, the description given in the guide book couldn't have been further from the truth. Dated, 1980's throw back decor and fittings. Threadbare, stained carpet, in a room on the 6th floor (no lift or fire escape), with a velux sklight with a very pleasant view. However, no curtains or black out blind which is crucial here at this time of the year - very long days!!! Had to drape a navy blue bedspread across the sklight. What with the dodgy put you beds for the kids that were provided (one broke and the other we couldn't use), the room ended up looking like a squat or dingey bedsit. Breakfast was ok, but nothing to write home about.
All in all, Tallinn is a beautiful place, but skip this little hotel.

Olevi residents is located right in the center of Old Tallinn. It hosts old romantic building and rooms are decorated to emphasize this. Breakfast was quite ok, but nothing extraordinary. Staff is polite and heedful of your needs. Prices are small. Generally I can recommend this hotel for visiting, but it should also be taken into account that there are a lot of other good hotels in Tallinn which play up the same old times theme.

Good rooms. Odd decor but that seems the norm in Tallinn to be honest. Comfy beds. Lots of noise at night though if you are in the front rooms. The back rooms however have no wifi.

Very conveniently situated for Old Town Square and surrounding area. Room and bathroom very nicely decorated and clean but had no windows. Reception at ground level, dining room and bedrooms are downstairs, several flights to our room, and there is no lift. Food good. Staff very surly.
I would recommend this hotel but with reservations.
