Recent guest reviews

This hotel is easy to recommend. Reasonably priced, in the old town, good facilities and breakfast. Rooms were a good size and clean and comfortable. Staff happy to help when needed. Bar wasn't open when we visited but there are plenty of restaurants/ bars on the doorstep. Had a fab time. Many thanks

Excelent location...By walking everywhere and close to shops and mall off the vana viru gate. Restaurant is excellent. Only issue is staff at reception desk is rude, not enough polite, specially blonde girl in the morning. No safe deposit box in the room.

My room overlooked a courtyard and was very quiet and spotlessly clean. I have no complaints whatsoever about the room, except to say, take a mask to block out the sunlight as the curtains are thin. The breakfast staff were totally inadequate. I had to ask for cups, bowls and plates every morning and the toaster was present on one occasion, then was in a cupboard from then on, so I had to ask for that too. The quality and quantity of food on offer was excellent, but the hot food was stone cold. If a lot of guests ate breakfast, goodness only knows how they would cope. I would recommend the hotel but suggest guests eat elsewhere for breakfast.

This was my first visit to Tallinn, and I picked this hotel because of its location in the old city. The location is indeed excellent, and the rooms were clean and in good repair. However, I am not convinced that the hotel is a good value. Tallinn is not an expensive city by European or North American standards, and based on the price of my room, I would have expected somewhat more amenities and higher quality. Here are some observations: 1. Rooms do not include basic amenities such as toiletries (beyond soap and shampoo in dispensers), or a coffee maker. 2. My breakfast was not included in the room rate, and the pay buffet on offer, although acceptable, was not outstanding, again considering the price. 3. I requested a wake-up call, which was made an hour late. 4. Although the hotel is off the main street, and thus sheltered from some noise, my room overlooked a courtyard where the drunken revelry (I assume involving other guests) continued until late at night. Hotel staff took no action to deal with this problem, and I could hear other guests calling out their windows to ask for some peace and quiet. In short, I have nothing against this hotel, but my impression is that if you stay there, you are paying extra for the location. Moreover, in retrospect, I'm not sure that it's so essential to stay right in the old city as a tourist in Tallinn. The city as a whole is not large, transit is good, and there are plenty of hotels outside the old city that may offer more comfortable accommodations, or at least better value for money.

Location is great if your destinations is Tallinn old city and you also want to stay there. View from the window is beautiful. You can see only old buildings and roofs and not even a single new building. Rooms are average or little bit below it, but they are clean. Beds - I have sleep in better ones. Room walls are so thin that you literally can hear neighbors actions and talking. For example on the second morning I woke up because next rooms phone alarm. There are two big windows in the room but only beneath one is the radiator. I can imagine that in the winter it could be a problem. In the bathroom there was no socket for shaver. In short - you mostly pay because location. Breakfast is slightly overpriced according to local prices. Breakfast is average but price is like it should be something more. Also on Sunday at 10 am there was quite big mess in the dining room. Some foods were finished and you should wait for plates and cups. Also they allow to smoke right in front of the main door. In the evening you enter through smoke cloud and there are cigarette butts in the flower pots.

Nice location in the center of the old city. Breakfast is okay but quite expensive ( 16 € ), There is a small parking place in the backyard ( 20 €/ day ). Staff was very helpful and friendly. I can recommend this hotel.

I stayed at the hotel for several nights. The staff were very helpful with suggestions, spoke English and Russian well, helped with letting to use their printer for my business needs. The room was spacious, warm, clean, although the carpets were somewhat dated. I asked for a room with a bathtub and was given one. The bathtub was modern and clean and the hot water and water pressure were excellent. I didn't have breakfast, which was pricy for me. The location is as good as it gets with all the attractions nearby. airport shuttle #2 stop is nearby. There was a minibar in the room; adequate TV channel choices. wifi was excellent in the room and in the foyer.

This hotel is in an ideal location to explore the old town, just inside the wall, with a McDonalds across the street perfect for a morning coffee and a store next door for munchies and fruit. Old town is easily walkable and there are a lot of restaurants to choose from the main square has shows and people selling stuff different things every day. Would stay at this hotel again.

Stayed 1 night to spend my weekend there. Nice location, just in the center of the old city. Was a bit complicated to find the hotel, because it is located inside of the street. Check-in was 1 hour before the confirmed time. Nice room, nice bathroom. Nothing special, but it really does not matter.

Location of this hotel property is excellent just near the Veru Gate as you enter the old town and taxi can drive upto the porch of the hotel . Check in is quick rooms though are not big and there is no tea or coffee maker in the room .They do have a mini bar for which they ask you to deposit upfront Euro 80.00 Propertys is nice and clean
