“Great business hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

Stayed here while speaking at a conference. It's a fine hotel in a good location. Turn right at of the front doors and you're two minutes walk from Tallinn's very picturesque Old Town. Turn left and cross the road and you enter a large indoor shopping centre, including a big hypermarket. Just behind is the Coca Cola Plaza cinema complex.

The hotel itself has spacious, clean rooms with the usual flat screen TV, mini bar etc. Unfortunately, no coffee making facilities in the room, which is a huge negative for me.

The hotel restaurant is above par as it serves a wide range of traditional Estonian dishes, just presented a bit better than it might usually be in order to make it 'hotel restaurant' standard. My wild boar starter and moose steak main were both delicious. The breakfast buffet had an excellent choice of tasty food including pancakes (not crepe style), german sausages, meatballs, a wide variety of Baltic style fish dishes, roast potatoes, sweet waffles and so the list goes on. You help yourself to a big jug of coffee.

My one criticism of the room would be that the bed was far too soft. Despite if facing on to a busy main road it was really quiet. The decor is also quite charming with a 'yellow brick road' flanked with 'grass' carpet to take you to your room.

The hotel has free (reasonably fast) wifi throughout with no messing about with log-in etc. The staff were really friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Even the ones facing the busy room are very quiet, although I was on the fourth floor.

The staff are very friendly and helpful and speak excellent English. Rooms are good and well furnished but noisy at front due to passing trams. Easy walking distance to old town and modern shopping centre.

This is overall a nice comfortable hotel and all staff were more than helpful throughout the stay. The food here is superb in comparison to other hotels, certainly near the top of hotel food that I have tried. Its somewhat annoying that breakfast only starts at 7am. A lot of business people will have left before or at 7am so its a bit ridiculous that the hotel should fail on this one thing. My room was comfortable.

Stayed for 3 nights at Nordic Forum with a friend for a girls weekend away in beautiful Tallinn. We were there for Estonian independence day, which may explain why the hotel was so busy.

The hotel is in a good location, a 5 minute walk from the Old Town Viru gates, and 2 minutes from the city sightseeing hop on hop off bus. 

Hotel is decorated very well - stylish fireplace on the left as you walk in and a nice bar and restaurant. Pool and spa area on top floor is a good feature of the hotel, although it is small. Unfortunately we didn't get chance to use these facilities as they were very busy the times we tried.

Our room was on floor 8, the top floor which was well serviced by three speedy elevators. Our room was also nicely decorated, but there were no kettle/tea/coffee making facilities in room which was disappointing. Though the most disappointing feature of the room was the see through glass panel into the bathroom. Anyone on the toilet or in the shower is highly visible to anyone else in the hotel room. I think the hotel should provide some sort of curtain or screen.

Breakfast was of good quality, but always very busy. Every morning we struggled to find a seat, and so sat on a vacant dirty table. Seats were so hard to come by other guests had to come and sit on our small 4 person table. The final morning we ate breakfast in the bar area, as the restaurant was being refurbished. Not sure why as it didn't need to be redecorated, can only hope they are reconfiguring to include more seating.

The hotel arranged pick up/drop off service to the airport which we paid slightly more than if we'd got a taxi, but was very convenient.

Nordic Forum is a good hotel and offers value for money, though the bathroom screen issue means I would not stay here again.

Great location and really nice looking rooms. Fast check-in. SPA looks empty in pictures but really crowded in reality. Smart-TV in room for music and mocies. There are even loudspeakers in the bathroom. Minibar with big selection of stuff. Hotel is next to old post office bulding and this building will soon be demolished so maybe there is disturbing construction work upcoming.
