Recent guest reviews

Nice and clean hotel in perfect location! Breakfast was really good and had a big variety of food. Our room was lovely, but it did look a little dated.The main reason we booked it is it's location and good value!I would say it exceeded our expectations. If you want to do a bit of sightseeing, shopping and go out in the evening without worrying about taxis, this is a great place.Would stay there again.

Just returned from a quick weekend visit, chose this place as I wanted somewhere close to the main street and Viru Gate. I arrived into Tallinn at midnight on Friday so by the time I reached the hotel it was almost 1am. I'd pre-advised the hotel of my late check-in time and they were expecting me and the night receptionist had no issues checking me in to me room quickly. I'd only reserved a single room, which was compact but the bathroom was still a decent size. Heating worked very well in the room, which was handy as I was recovering from a heavy cold and it was almost minus 20 outside! Wi-fi was free and worked well, no connection issues. Flat screen TV had a decent selction of channels too. There was a mini-bar in the room, I only took a bottle of water which was 2 euros. Hotel is very close to the Viru Gate and one of the main entrances to the old town. The hotel itself is inside the old city walls, and takes a few minutes to walk up to the old town square (where the Xmas market was still taking place). I left very early on sunday morning, the hotel ordered me a taxi to collect me at 4.45am which didn't cause any problems either. No issues with this hotel at all, decent value for a good location.

Located in the Old Town of Tallinn, we stayed here for a night. The price was reasonable, about 70 euro or so. The staff was informative but not really warm or friendly. No one smiles. The room was clean. Don't count on amenities. The shower had a body and face one soap fits all bottle attached to the wall and you squeeze it when taking a shower. There are no bars of soap, only this one bottle. Then, at 4:00 AM the fire alarm goes off. No fault of the hotel but some idiot sprayed the fire extinguisher in the hall which set off the fire alarm. We all gathered in the lobby and you could see the stress on the faces of the staff. If the hotels was really on fire it would've burned down as it took the Fire Team about an hour to get to the hotel. After the fire team checks out the hotel we finally get the ok to go back to our hotel room. An apology is all we get. Of course, it was not the fault of the hotel but they could've at least offered coffee to the guests or even a glass of water. It's a no frills hotel but the location is good. Just a few meters from the town square and many tourist spots. Many restaurants close by, also. Would I stay again? More than likely, no.

This hotel is very nice for the price and is in a fantastic location, all of the staff are very helpful and friendly. Room was very clean and the farm restaurant next door is fantastic too. I would definitely recommend to others.

The location of the hotel is outstanding and also the selling point of this hotel. It is near virus gate and the medieval wall, which is the stretch that is most well preserved. Everyday there are stalls here selling mittens and beanies and clothing. Very vibrant and yet it's quiet. It's a great starting point to explore the old town. There are some great lounges near the hotel too!

Well situated close to the town walls this offers a good base to explore from. The Viru Väljak is only 250 yards from the Vana Wiru. St John’s church and Freedom Square are both 550 yards from the hotel. Balti Jaam Railway Station is about 900 yards away.

Good location, set in between the old and the new world. Old town attractions, supermarkets, shops, restaurants and shopping malls are all within walking distances. I would say this is the right place to stay to begin your experience of the Old Town and the new part of Tallinn. Room was fine and the best thing we liked is that this hotel is linked to Kohvik Rukis cafe! We had two nights of tea and cakes before our bedtime, superb.

Decent location and nice enough, but the whole experience at this hotel is ruined by the management's bizarre policy of playing music in corridors leading to bedrooms all day. I write this at after 2330hrs, yet still it continues and it can be heard while lying in bed, making sleep either difficult or impossible. Absolutely idiotic and unforgivable. If you value a good night's sleep, this is not the place for you. If you do actually like listening to piped-in garbage while lying in bed late at night, it is.

Superb location for exploring the old town. My twin room was pretty small but very clean. Breakfast as good and the staff seemed to be well trained. There are a couple of nice bars nearby and no shortage of restaurants .Would stay again.

We spent 2 nights at this hotel. We got a room above a bar facing one of the main streets in old town, so it was quite noisy even at night. The room was a bit old fashioned but clean. We were surprised that we had to pay for breakfast at the restaurant and it was not included in the room prise and it was not possible to pay in the reception. They didn't have any change at the restaurant. At the reception they did not seem to notice us not even once when we passed by. Not a good service.
