If what they say is true, that a hotel is only as good as its employees, this one is worth gold... Among all the places I've visited and hotels I've stayed in either on business or holidays this one has a special something, of course you can find more luxurious places around, but what makes this one special besides its well centered and strategic location is its personnel, always friendly (not because they have to, but because they like their job) and ready to help you.
Everywhere I stay I make it a personal point to interact with the locals starting with the people who work where I stay, and I must say I have never met such an unorthodox yet friendly and outgoing bunch, for whom I have the utmost respect and gratitude for making my short stay in Tallinn a fun and great experience...!!!

We were lucky enough to have a great room on the 3rd floor which also had a sauna.the room was very clean and we were provided with robes and slippers. The staff were great, really helpful organising tours for us and ringing for taxis. Breakfast which was included was also very good. The location just outside the city wall was perfect just a ten minute walk to old town place.

Room Tip: Room 303 is the one to ask for, a double bed with sofa bed. Sauna and jacuzzi bath.

We stayed in Hotel Bern for two nights and chose the hotel based on the Tripadvisor reviews. We got a room from the first floor facing the courtyard. On arrival there was a used condom in the litter bin. First night there were a lot of young people drinking beer in the courtyard next to our window so we didn't sleep well. The other night there was a party next room, so no sleep again.

Breakfast was good and the location almost perfect.

Room Tip: Avoid the first floor.

Dear Jenninen,

Thank you for reminding us this issue again. It is unfortunately a memorable day for us as well because this mistake is not something that is correct for our standards.
Hopefully you can forgive us this terrible mistake.

As far as the noise part goes, we are improving daily. Although in the old town area there is very difficult to keep the noise level at the bare minimum we have still discussed this matter with our neighbors and we reached to several points of agreement that will hopefully guarantee more quiet sleeping hours for our guests.
Hopefully we can make this up to you sometimes in the future.

Have a lovely Christmas!

Very good hotel with comfortable rooms and a good selection for breakfast. The reception staff were very friendly giving good advice on places to eat and drink. There is a pub called the Beer garden which is adjacent to the hotel that was good. All in all we had a good stay here and I would definately return...

We travelled as a couple in September 2012 and we loved staying at this hotel. The location of this hotel is fantastic! Literally behind the old town so it took barely 5 mins to walk to the old town. All the staff were very welcoming, cheerful,helpful and smiling all the time which was great. The reception staff was very excellent! They were really with it. The feel of this hotel was very warm and homely. The rooms were very comfortable and functional. There was lots of storage space. They were cleaned impeccably everyday. The breakfast was quite a nice spread as well. We stayed here on the way to Helsinki and back. Unfortunately they were fullly booked up for the weekend so we ended up spending one night at another hotel.
I cannot think of anything negative to say about this charming little hotel and I would definitely recoomend this hotel to everyone wishing a functional and comfortable stay in Tallinn.

We spent 6 days in Tallinn, Estonia. It was our first visit. The Hotel Bern was within a short walk to the old city. All of the desk staff were very friendly and tried their very best to help. Breakfast was very nice, a great selection. The room was clean, effecient. Glad we stayed there on our visit to an interesting city.
