The hotel has very good location, the rooms are very nice.
I used t he room service for a dinner: it was really excellent food and very impressive presentation, from far the best dinner I ever had in an hotel room.

Stayed one night in Nordic Forum. Our group had two standard rooms and one suite. All rooms were nice, clean and roomy. Air conditioning worked perfectly. My experience was that it was very quiet and peaceful night, slept very well. Breakfast was good and delicious, it was a busy Sunday morning, but no lines or rush. Relax center was also nice experience, pool, jacuzzi and two saunas with grat views, nice extra thing in this hotel. Only one minus, Bathrobes and slippers were available only in suite, not in standard rooms. Rooms facing Viru-hotel might be a bit noisy. Upper floors are better.
Check-in can be painful, ferries from Finland bring loads of people in certian times, there was rather long lines in recption. Standard rates are a bit high, but I found that good deals are available.

I stayed here for two nights in the winter with my boyfriend. For us it was a very luxurious hotel outside and inside, and it has a great location just outside the old town wall.

I liked the modern, glass architecture of the building and the trendy interior design. Compared to Finland, they have a less conformist attitude towards design in Estonia, so some of their solutions appeared even a bit humorous to me, like the grass & stone path print in the fitted carpet of the corridor. I did like the glass wall in the bathroom, but it can be uncomfortable if you're not travelling with your spouse but someone else. TV voices in the bathroom was a strange experience, and we didn't find out how to turn them off.

The room was very clean, trendy, quiet and comfortable, and we had a great view over the town even though the room was on the backside of the building. There was a versatile buffet breakfast. The staff was modest but friendly, and I appreciated that they let us keep our room for some extra hours without any fee.

Just been back a few days from Tallin, its OK, we have been to Prague and we both said it was better, but thats only my view.
the hotel however was perfect, very good service, clean rooms, great big showers, top end fixtures and fittings,bathrobes and slippers just about all you expect for the money, so if you have already booked it, top choice, you will not be upset.

The breakfast was ok, nothing special and a bit of a daft way of setting it up, its a bit of a free for all. dont let it put you off i think they just want to please every pallet and every nation, and fail a bit, but you will find something to eat.

A few things you might need to know if its your first time in Tallin-

based on my exchange rate 16.36 EKK / £1

Taxi from airport to hotel 150EKK fixed price when we got there
Taxi from hotel to airport 105EKK on the meter, this price will change depending
on day or evening, we went back at 09:00, so i would suggest this option.

price of beer (SAKU) 50cl
Main square of old town, sat outside nice place (you know what i mean)
most about 50EKK------£3
one was 75EKK ---------£4.58(ouch) opposite the flower stalls
best pub, walk outside hotel, go left past steak house go over the road crossings
walk past Apple computer shop and walk 100yards to the pub with outside seating area
beer was 35EKK---------£2.13
cocktails 2 for 1 offer all night about 90EKK----£5.70 for the 2
the tom collins was nice,

Food was ok in the restaurants, average bill for 2 people with
a drink no starters, 500EKK-----------£30

We did go for a curry, yes i know we go all the way to Tallin and we had a curry
typical of a tourist, but it was the last day and as i said the other food was ok nothing special, anyway the curry was amazing, the best meal in Tallin
walk out of hotel turn right, go past the flower stands in the old town and you come to 2
towers, turn right and walk for about 5mins, you will see a sign on the left hand wall which says haus the restaurant is up that ally on the right
PS have the tandoori lamb to start, wow they are great.
it was 830EKK----£50
but we had a feast for 2 and drinks, etc, worth every penny..

hope the info helps

We had a short stay in Tallin arriving after taking the ferry from Helsinki after a flight from NY. It was wonderful staying at this hotel as we were able to swim and exercise after our long journey. The hotel is located just outside the old town gates and across the street from a major shopping center. It is immaculate and welcoming. We had an early bus trip the next morning and they had breakfast waiting for us at an ungodly hour.

I stayed here for 5 nights in April and it was great! It is a great valur hotel and everything was just as clean and new looking in reality as on the official hotel website photos. Our room (standard double) on the 7th floor was lovely and clean, and there was plenty of space. Yes, we could vaguely hear the shrieking brakes of the trams down below, but otherwise no traffic - or other - noice.
The breakfast buffet was very nice! It provided something for everyone, whether you want local dishes or the classical english breakfast or something light like fruit and yoghurts.
In the weekend the buffet was very crowded and it could be rather challenging to find a table, but the staff refilled the emptied buffet and cleaned the tables very efficiently.
The relax center on 8th floor was very nice. We tried it in the evenings and it wasnt crowded at all.
The location was perfect. Only a couple of minutes walk from Old Town and public transportation as well as tour bus stops were available very close to the hotel.
Viru shopping centre is just across the street.
The only thing I can think of that would have made the stay even better was if there were more english language TV channels to choose from. Yes, there were CNN and BBC and Eurosport, so there was easy access to news, but that was more or less it.
Please note also that there are no tea and coffee-making facilities in standard rooms and many rooms do not have much of a view.
If you want to stay in a large hotel with spa and fitness facilites, close to Old Town but still undisturbed by the noice from bars and discoteques, I would definitely recommend Forum.
