This was my second stay at the Avalon. The location is great, right near the Old Town. I was there on business for a couple of days, but to be able to walk out the back of the hotel into the city was great.
The staff are very friendly and helpful, they happily printed my boarding pass for me when I check out.
The rooms are very spacious and clean. Everything you need is there, and it's very comfortable too.
The restaurant is also very nice, I had a meal there one evening and breakfast each morning. There was a wide selection of cold and hot food, and drinks.

Another great stay here, and I'll be returning here next time.

This 4-star hotel is located between railroad/bus station and old town, but...

Pros:
- just few steps from railroad/bus station
- just few steps from old city center
- nice breakfast
- low price

Cons:
- I've asked for smoking room/room with balcony - none of them available
- a lot of noise in the rooms facing to the railroad station
- no trash bin in the room
- heater in the bathroom was fixed with duct tape (yeah, I know that it will fix everything)

The Avalon Hotel has so much in its favour: location, smart, comfortable rooms, bar snacks, really helpful staff and amazing breakfasts. Having had a few days there late April, I was delighted with my choice. It is on the cusp of the beautiful old town, (a must see explore) so really easy to walk home in the evening. The rooms are sparkling and the crisp white duvets/sheets very comfortable.
Breakfast is an experience and comes with a broad choice- from typical English to Baltic delights: fish, cheeses, meats and salads. There is patisserie and and fruit. The staff couldn't do enough and were friendly too.

I would suggest that if you are a light sleeper, ask for a room facing the old town. The cobbles on the street below the front of the building echo with car wheels long into the night! Alternatively, shut the window and put on the air-con.

This is a business/tourist hotel, so lots of coming and going. Superb location for us - arrived by coach from Tallinn - 300m walk to the hotel! Bus for the airport stops outside the hotel - €0.60 per person - could not be simpler. Hotel on the edge of the old town, so great for exploring.

Got upgraded to a superior room free of charge. Tea/coffee in the room. Good breakfast choices. Very comfortable bed with aircon and the bonus of opening windows. Triple glazing made it noise free despite being on the front overlooking road, trams and railway.

Only niggle we had was that Reception would not supply additional tea bags or creamer - very adamant that two per day was the limit! Shower was a little tired - needed the silicone renewing. Basically stopped us giving it an excellent, but nothing to be concerned about.
