Metropol Hotel
Ranked #36 of 86 Hotels in Tallinn
Reviewed January 8, 2013

We booked 3 rooms at the Metropol back in July 2012 for a 2 night stay on New Years Eve. Having never been to Estonia, let alone Tallinn before, this booking was a complete stab in the dark. We read into the Metropol on Trip Advisor, and as accommodation was being booked up at an alarming rate, we plumped for it. To be honest, its not the prettiest hotel in the world, but who cares about the outside really!! Check in was quick and painless, and the staff were very efficient. The room was bigger than we expected, with a good sized spotless bathroom. As this was not a holiday, but more of a 'jolly', I didn't really expect too much for the small price that we had paid, so we were very pleasantly surprised. We didn't eat at the Metropol, but a lot of people did, and the food looked very nice, in a buffet style. I can thoroughly recommend the bar though! The local brew, 'A le Coq' is a very palatable lager, and also on draught was a lovely pear cider, both at reasonable prices.
All in all, the Metropol is a well placed hotel, only minutes from the city centre, and moments from the docks, from where we caught a ferry to Helsinki on New Years Day.
The staff, people and party atmosphere in the Metropol were great, and come highly recommended.

I booked this hotel just a few days before the visit, and I got a room at a very good price. The hotel was ok, the service at the front desk upon arrival I was good and the room was found quickly. The room was clean, although somewhat poorly cleaned. Toilet seat was dirty. But it is the only minus I give the hotel. Breakfast is not unusual at this price but pretty good. I recommend the hotel, however the best location if you are traveling by boat, and you want to live close to the city center.

Room Tip: Request a room with a window facing the old town.

We had a great value stay at this hotel. Good location, about a 5 minute walk from the main part of the town, and near a lot of nice restaurants - I recommend Limoncello and the Grillhouse Daube.

The lobby and restaurant areas are modern and spotlessly clean. We only ate breakfast there, no other meals - I'd say the breakfast was adequate but there could have been more choice. I understand that may just be what Tallinn hotels serve for breakfast though so not necessarily a criticism of this hotel.

We were really impressed with our room. More spacious than a lot of European hotel rooms (good when you're staying for four nights), very comfortable and clean, and a large bathroom. The best feature was the in-room sauna - we only paid a few pounds extra per night to have a room with sauna and it was well worth it. I'd never seen this before but it was fantastic (see pics below). I think there's also a spa in the hotel that's free for guests.

We only dealt with reception while checking in and out but service was excellent from what we saw.

Overall a very good hotel which I would go back to. We went to Tallinn in September and I'd recommend that time of year to visit. It was a pleasant temperature - warm enough to just wear T-shirts etc - and it was sunny every day. The city centre was lively enough but not too packed which was nice.

The lobby and the breakfast bar are great and modern but the rooms are not. The bed was not comfortable and the bathroom was worn out. Breakfast was poorest one I have had in my many visit to Tallinn's hotels. In the same money category there is Park Inn Central that has much better breakfast and rooms are about the same. Location of Metropol Hotel is nice, about a few hundred meters to Viru-centrum and to old town. Hotel staff were not so friendly. No playground for children. Extra bed was not made but you had to make it yourself.
Free parking is a plus. Free morning sauna also.

Room Tip: You can pick a room looking at the harbour or to the old town.

We traveled here for our tennis trip. It has good location in the city, well furnished rooms and great service. Breakfast was nice too. The look from the window was not so nice, but actually we have arrived there not to look through the window...

Good clean spacious hotel with great breakfast buffet.Rooms large and with large windows and nice shower. Staff very helpful as we rented a car through the front desk. All was smooth and well done and punctual. Nice 10 min walk to the old town which is wonderful.I climbed the church steeple and the views were magnificent. You can spend a few days here.

Room Tip: Rooms at back look out to old town.

Hotel has good location close to the center and harbour. The price is good and hotel is quite confortable, not exlusive but suitable for staying couple of nights. But service or actually the missing of it! Our keycard did not work and the receptionist did not even say pardon for that. Actually he did not say anything.
