I nearly gave a 4 rating just because the bathrooms and wifi are so good. However, breakfast (ok food, grim seating), no water in the room and general corporate feel leave it at 3.
If you are on business and want a clean, basic, reasonably priced and very central hotel, then you'd rate this as a 4.
If you're on holiday then you'd like the rooms but feel your soul slip through your eyeballs as you walk through the hotel or have brekkie.
As mentioned elsewhere there are cooky aspects to the hotel: carpets with prints of roads, cobbles and grass; a floral motif cut out of the room numbers, and the vinyl-covered-glass shower cubicles that intrude into the rooms.
The rest is plain business hotel. Brekkie is OK (sausage, nuclear scrambled eggs, irradiated fruit), but the ambience in the dining area is like Hell's antechamber.
Staff are friendly and efficient.
Beds are very comfortable - nice and firm.
Wifi is free and good.
No water in rooms though!
Location is great to visit the old town and also good for connections/transport.
Summary: would return here on business without hesitation, but for a romantic visit to Tallinn I'd look elsewhere.
