Situated on one of Tallinn's oldest boulevards, the Meriton Old Town Hotel is a treasure built into the original old city wall. With a picturesque environment and a combination of modern architecture and pseudo-gothic abundance of detail, we are able to provide you with a truly unique and memorable stay in Estonia's vibrant capital. The city's most attractive locations, whether business or leisure are at your doorsteps, and the hotel's surroundings breathe history. With 41 cozy rooms spread over four floors and the attic, the hotel is ideal for individual tourists or small groups. With 38 double rooms, the Meriton Old Town Hotel also offers 6 unique and spacious rooms, 2 of which have balconies and are known as the Bella Vita rooms. All rooms have a telephone, TV-set (Sat TV), minibar, shower, 3 rooms also have a bath. There is a Wi-Fi connection in many rooms. Bella Vita rooms also offer tea/coffee making facilities and the house is equipped with a lift. The interior design of the lobby and the dining hall connects medieval and modern styles. A contemporary room solution has been placed between historical walls; natural materials are adorned with modern accents. From 1340 to 1355, one of the towers of the historical city wall, the Renten Tower, was located at the site of the Meriton Old Town Hotel. The tower perished in 1880 and the current building was built on the foundation of the tower. One of the most unique features of the hotel is its close proximity to a horse mill, which dates back to the first half of the 14th century and belongs to the 78 most interesting objects in our medieval capital. The hotel provides facilities like Airport Shuttle, Free breakfast, Handicap Rooms, Room Service, Wireless Internet, Smoke-Free Property.

Pretty good value, staff helpful but in need of signage and fine tuning of facilities

On the plus side: Staff helpful and friendly. I arrived quite late and was 'desperate' for a cup of tea or hot water and the staff member obtained me a kettle. TV remote didnt work: staff came up to my room to check. I could not find bottle opener for bar fridge items. (by now i am beginning to sound like the guest everyone dreads) anyway, the staff member couldn't find it either and so came up with a bottle opener to personally open my bottle for me!, Incidentally i eventually found a wall mounted bottle opener in the bathroom. if only there had been some indication about this eg a note on the bar fridge! Good location. Breakfast was varied and comparable with other hotels I have stayed at. A nice surprise was the access to the pool and spa facilities. These are located a15 minute walk away, but then if you feel like an early morning swim, a walk seems to go well with it. Room was clean. No so good: Wifi access was erratic which meant I had to keep going out into the hall, not just outside the door. Pretty annoying and inconvenient. The key didn't work very well and actually had to be reset. Room was very cramped and also quite hot, but to be fair I think the warm summer has hit many northern European hotels hard!

Good value

Somewhat no-frills hotel located in a quiet corner of Old Town. Not luxurious by any stretch, but certainly worth the price.

Nice place in Old Town

Nothing too fancy, but clean, quiet and tucked nicely into a corner of the Old Town close enough to walk to everything but removed enough to be spared noise from late night revellers. Nice old building too!

great location, comfortable beds

I was with a group of people sight seeing and we enjoyed our stay very much. I love European hotels because of their uniquiness and this was a charming hotel. I would stay again - but maybe not with a group. When looking for a hotel I wanted to stay in Tallinn's old city in a not-to-expensive hotel - somewhere that my group could easily get around by walking. This was a great fit. This hotel is located on the wall inside old city. The walls in the hallway show the original stone wall. It's very nicely done. The hotel itself was clean, up-to-date, and comfortable (the beds were great!). It is located next to (well, maybe 2 blocks away from) St. Olaf's Church - which is a great starting point to see the city. You can climb the tower for a small price at St. Olaf's and get a great orientation. From our hotel, my group found it easy to walk to the main square (once we got a map - which the front desk will provide)... to Aleksander Nevski (the Russian Orthodox Church) and parliment... and to the main city gates. We actually wanted to walk some in the modern city and it took a 10 minute walk to get to the main gates of old town where you can get to the modern city part. It's easy. This hotel is on a quiet street of the old town - that is, if you stay on the "inside" of old city (facing inward toward old city). Our rooms faced the street behind the wall (on the outside) and it was quite noisy in the mornings. I can pretty much sleep through anything, but it did bother others in my group. I probably would ask for an inside room next time. My biggest 'complaint' and the reason I would probably not take a group again is that the rooms are tiny! :) We did honestly enjoy our stay, but it was a bit cramped. Put into perspective: we are Americans, like a lot of space, and we had big bags. My group did not complain and it was a perfect fit for us; but not sure it would be a good fit for all groups. If I were traveling alone, I would stay again. It has all you need - location, food (resturant downstairs), free breakfast, free wi-fi, clean water, clean rooms, comfortable beds, etc. So, my 'complaint' is small compared to the rest. If you are a easy traveler and want a comfortable place to stay, I recommend this hotel.

Eat at Olde Hansa - it's a tourist place to eat, but it's fun and great food! It's a medieaval style resturant with yummy food! Try it out!

Great Location!

The hotel location is great, just by the entrance called Fat Margaret's Tower, an easy walk from the pier. We stayed 2 nights, arrrived early so our room was not ready but left the luggage in the luggage room. They have no safe deposit boxes in the rooms, but have one in the reception so we could leave our valuables there. We had a reservation for the least expensive room so our room faced the back of the hotel and the busy street that borders the wall, so there was noise from the street since there is no air condition and it was hot, (not stiffling hot but we needed to open the windows.) We got a corner room with a little balcony which was nice. )We were so tired from all the walking that this was not a major concern, but if you are a light sleeper you might want to upgrade to a room in the front since the town is mostly pedestriannand the front faces inside the wall.) The room size was average for european standards, clean with a nice bathroom. I had shopped around and for the location this was a good price. We value location first when deciding on a hotel and this was great. The breakfast buffet was very nice and included in the price. There was free wi-fi and one computer in the lobby for the patrons use. We loved Tallin, it is a very well preserved medieval town, easy to walk, with very nice shops, beautiful handicrafts, specially linen apparel, tablecloth, childrens clothing, scarfs, etc.) and nice little restaurants. . The weather was very nice, we were there july 14-16, it rained late one night as we were making our way back to the hotel, but the rest of the time was beautiful.

Karl Friedrich Restaurant, in the main plaza on a second floor. A very refined setting, exellent food and wine(we ordered the house wine and it was exellent), great service and the price was about the same you pay at the outdoor places with none of the frills. The restaurant was not full so we got a table overlooking the plaza, I think tourists probably think it is going to be more expensive, or don't bother to go up the stairs!

Living with history

We were there on business, and hotel staff were all helpful in letting us use their facilities for meetings, etc. The atmosphere is quiet, historic details of the old city and the city wall are everywhere in tasteful dimensions. Rooms are small, so if you are in need of lots of space, this may not be the place for you.
