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.
