Reviewed May 19, 2014 via mobile

My wife and me stayed here from May 16-19.room was on ground floor, facing a noisy main road with a lot of traffic. I upgraded the room when booking and when thinking of it. We shouldnt have been placed on the ground floor, is this a bella vita room?, uncomfotable with opening Windows due to traffic and People walking outside. Then its the breakfast, It got what you need, but little to Choose from, but tastes good. The location however was vert good and with another room i wood certainly be more happy than i am. The most annoing was when we asked the receptionist if we could buy a Coffee or something to drink when waiting for the taxi. She Said yes, sure, but the girl in restaurant just Said that it was closed. Not a big thing, but waiting for cab is much better with a cup of Coffee. After Said this the hotel has a lot of charm, with details of riginal briks and stands.close to everything and if you get a room on the other side i think it Will be value for money. Did not use the free acsess to the spa hotel so i Cannot tell if its good. All in all we just slept on the hotel, and Tallinn is a beautifull city and much more than the old city wich is marvelous. I would Come back to this city again, but uncertain regarding this hotel. Did not like the room, most because the traffic noice.

This hotel is very good located. It's in the old town of Tallinn located and very good to reach. Everybody in the hotel was very friendly, the room was clean but the sleep quality wasn't that good (especially the third bed in the room). The breakfast was well. Would recommend this hotel.

Good value for money. Very good location. Room small, but with good wifi. Don't forget to visit the Meriton Aqua center - it was included in the price - excellent experience. The breakfast buffet is adequate, but not more.

Centrally located hotel - given a slightly odd shaped twin room - but with everything needed in a hotel room. I can recommend this hotel for a good value break. Staff were very helpful and knowledgeable - and it was so easy to explore the old town from the hotel front door. Part of the hotel is actally the old city wall - couldn't ask for more. Lovely breakfast too - recommend the pancakes :-)

Room Tip: Check the room first - we had a small room...

The hostel is well-reachable, even by car. You can stop only a few minutes to drop-off the luggage, but there is a non-supervised parking area 2-3 minutes away, 5 EUR a day, fine for me.

After I parked my car, I found the pre-ordered fruit bowl in my room, without mentioning it during the check-in.

I had one of the bella vita rooms with a great view over the old town. Even these rooms are small and tend to get warm in summer as the old town is in to the south. Wifi is ok, just sit down in the lobby where they offer a PC as well. As far as I remember, the room had a small fan.

And I had a very special question for the receptionist: I needed to buy a new tent suitable for Laponia, so it couldn't be just any tent. On the next morning I had the addresses of two shops in the suburban shopping centres of Tallinn. Both had a reasonable amount of high-quality tents availabe on stock, so in the afternoon I happily arrived in the hotel with my new tent. Meanwhile the receptionist has organized two more outdoor shops, so they were really interested to help me.

It is not a hostel, there is no washing machine or similar, just an expensive laundry service not suitable for non-business travellers. Togehter with the quite noisy staff in the breakfast room this is the reason for only 4 service-stars.

We stayed here weekend. Old nice building. And rooms was great also. Would consider as honeymoon place. Friendly staff, excellent location; walking distance from harbor and all attractions. The restaurant is also good value for money. Would nor recommend in summer, as no air condition. Free entry included to Spa in other Meriton hotel. Will choose again this hotel.
