“Highly recommend Tallinn and Hotel Bern”
Reviewed May 4, 2011

Tallinn is absolutely fantastic and the Estonian people should be incredibly proud of their accomplishments over the last 15 -20 years. I myself hadn't been there in about 14 years and was thrilled to see so much development and progress. The atmosphere is more like Helsinki than Moscow. Very highly recommended for a long weekend trip!
Hotel Bern is a decent, quiet place with a fantastic breakfast, strong wi-fi signal, and a grocery store across the street. If you will have a car, please note that being outside the walls of Old Town seems to be an advantage. Hotel Bern is an 8E cab ride to/from the airport.
One downside is that there is no fitness facility. There's a big swimming pool/fitness center compound 2 blocks away that seems to be quite newly renovated, but I never quite made it there.
Another downside is the rooms -- I had a single room that was pretty small and pretty plain. It sure was quiet, however.
I would stay at Hotel Bern again but if you are big into exercise, you might try for a room at the Kalev (sp?) water park/fitness facility.

The entrance way to the hotel was a bit off putting but once inside it was bright and friendly. It is a high standard continental type breakfast with lovely smoked fish and black break - scrambled egg and white bread was also available for those who prefer a more traditional choice. The Bern has a supermarket close by and is in a great position for exploring the old town. Would use this hotel again if returning to Tallinn which is beautiful.

The location is perfect, right next to old town. There is also a supermarket opposite from the hotel. The staff are very friendly. The hotel also offers decent and adequate breakfast. Would definitely stay there again.

Overall this is an excellent hotel , good quality and good value for money with very attentive ,helpfull staff in fab location for old town and shopping malls.

My son and I had twin room on 3rd floor and my mother had asked for single bedroom but got double bedded room on 3rd floor also.Both very clean and tidy and no noise both with wet rooms. .Wardrobe Storage space was limited and when u opened one side had to push clothes back on coat hangers to open

Breakfast had decent choice and variety for most tastes very similar to fare in Polish hotels including cereals , cold meats ,pastries etc and hot scrambled eggs and meatballs( they could have been hotter)

Would have been nice to have tea/coffee making facilties in room( travelling light meant no travel kettle this trip)

Staff very keen to advise and give hints and tips- great service.

Tallinn itself is a fab place for a city break .The old town was absolutely fabulous.

We stayed Mon - Thursday so avoided stag and hen parties.

Would defo recommend staying here on any trip to Tallinn.

Airport was only 10 mins to hotel in taxi.

Fab trip , Fab hotel, Fab City!

Room Tip: To go to Kadriorg Palace take number 1 or 3 tram

Quiet location but only 5 mins walk from centre of the Old Town. Rooms a little sparse but had everything you could need for a short stay (3 days) including a mini bar.. Bed comfortable and room exceptionally clean. Very nice dining room for breakfast which was plentiful and varied. Staff extremely friendly and helpful throughout the stay. Excellent value all round.

Hotel: The hotel was lovely and clean with large rooms. Hotel staff very friendly and spoke good English. Excellent value.

Location: Good location just inside the old town. The only down side is the front entance of the hotel is right next to a "Gentlemen's Club". So a little embarrassing thinking people thought that I was going there (but no noise and saw nothing). Hotel close to port and I would highly recommend a trip to Finland by ferry.
