If you want to be in the heart of historic Tallinn and literally reside in a historic landmark, this hotel fits the bill. Our room was on the smaller side on the second floor, facing the street. It had high ceilings but the black floor was a bit different, easy to see your belongings but also dirt, etc. There was a nice window that you could open up. Word of caution though, if you open the window and look out, keep in mind that there are tourists on the street below taking pictures of this majestic, large building. You may be included in those pictures, so dress appropriately and smile too :) Or, request a room higher up. There are nice amenities, really appreciated the bottled water (highly recommended not to drink the water in the Baltics), and the yummy chocolate left on the pillow. The bathroom was smaller than expected and the shower was next to the window, so again make sure to keep the shade drawn appropriately. Apart from the fabulous location, the breakfast buffet was quite extensive and varied, it was hands down excellent. This property has a beautiful outdoor restaurant area, so if you have time to dress up and do a high-end dinner outside, it looked like a lovely option. We passed by the restaurant on our way out and there were violinists playing for the diners, which was such a lovely treat to hear. As for the staff, people at the front were polite and helpful with our requests for directions, etc. In sum, if you are looking for a lovely, historic property in the heart of old Tallinn, this is one location you should definitely consider.
