“Excellent stay”
Reviewed January 11, 2014

My stay at the Hotel was a very enjoyable experience. The staff were extremely pleasant and helpful, even providing me with a bagged breakfast when I had to leave for the airport early in the morning. The location is ideal--it is so easy to get anywhere in the old city fairly quickly by foot. The rooms are clean and well maintained and the service is excellent.

Fantastic location, 2 minutes walk from Tallinn old town.

The staff are friendly and helpful, rooms are basic but we had no issues and the breakfast is fine. (I'm vegetarian and there was plenty of choice).

We had a room at the front on the 3rd floor and didn't experience the noise problems mentioned in previous reviews. I wonder if this was because we stayed midweek (perhaps it's worse at the weekend?)

There is a Rimi supermarket just across the road which is very handy. Our room had a fridge so you can get a few bits from the shop. I think the rooms would benefit from having a safe as I don't feel comfortable leaving passports/jewellery etc in the room. However, we had no problems.

Recommended.

Do not expect a lot, this is a basic hotel. Rooms are decorated with light/dull colors (need some kind of "facelift), lamp didn't hang properly from the roof, awful noise all the night (the is a beer garden just next to the hotel, inner court of the hotel entrance is crowded all night long when people from the bar come and go and smoke in that court. You can not sleep without earplugs. Hotels bar is really small and dull as well. With this money you can find cozier hotels in Tallinn and on nicer streets (this street has weird people hanging on the street, also quite big supermarket just next to the street is, of course, really handy - but makes the street really busy as well (not like some little and calm streets of the old town of Tallinn can be). Service was very good and helpful though.

Excellent hotel with excellent service and location. It is situated near Old Town (about 3 munutes by walk).
The same breakfast menu every day, but tasty :)
A personel agreed to hold our baggage after our checkout for several hours and helped us to take a taxi to an airport.
Thanks a lot!!!

P.S. Free WiFi in a room.

excellent location, pleasant staff. To the Old City, 2 minutes on foot, the bottom is quite a decent beer :) the Only disadvantage of the lack of Parking space, but on the contrary paid for that kind of like you can not pay, because there is no cameras. I think that next time come back here.

This hotel is in the old town and a very short walk from the medieval town square, where the Christmas market is held. Hotel breakfast is very good and plenty of food, staff very helpful and it is clean and comfortable.
The market is small and not the best but the people are friendly, the food is good and there are some good bus tours round the town. Loads of choices for eating and drinking Old Hansa is a must ! Troika is a stunning cellar restaurant with excellent food and superb vodka!
The Church on the hill is stunning and the view is very good but the best view is from the Teletron tower. We did a 3night stay at end of November and it was a great experience, but take your thermals it can get very cold!
