We stayed at the Swissotel Tallinn for 4 nights in July. It's the first time we've stayed at a Swissotel and we'd definitely use this hotel chain again. The hotel was spotlessly clean and very stylish in design.
We had a corner room on the 14th floor which had floor to ceiling windows on 2 sides with excellent views across to the port and out towards the airport. The room was well appointed and the bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was beautifully decorated with small mosaic tiles in shades of copper and dark brown.
We had buffet breakfast in Cafe Swiss each morning and it was delicious; the choice of hot and cold food was very good and the quality couldn't be faulted. We also had a cocktail in the bar on the 30th floor one evening.
We used the pool, sauna and steam room a few times during our stay, although the pool was pretty cold for our British tastes! The whole spa area was again very clean and very stylishly decorated. It was also interesting to have such a great view of the city from the sauna!
The hotel is in a good location, less than 10 minutes by taxi from the airport and the ferry port (the taxi fare from each of these places to the hotel was equivalent to about €4). It is also roughly a 10 minute walk through the pleasant shopping area to Tallinn Old Town.
The Old Town was beautiful and had plenty of character. We would defintely recommend Olde Hansa restaurant just off the Town Hall Square for a delicious medieval style meal and Hell Hunt bar for drinks.
We also had a day trip to Helsinki with the Viking Line ferry company. The ferry was modern and comfortable and took 2.5 hours to cross the Gulf of Finland. Helsinki was a lovely place although extemely expensive. While we were there we also spent time at the former sea fortress of Suomenlinna, which is also well worth a visit.
We would definitely recommend the Swissotel for a stay in Tallinn and also a day trip to Helsinki time permitting.
