Braavo Spa Hotel

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This Hotel is really an appendage to the large gym which shares the space. The restaurant/breakfast room is far to small to cater with larger parties as ours was. There was not enough room to offer a wide variety of foods having said that the quality was good.We stayed two nights on the last night there was no hot water, this problem stayed with us into the morning.The rooms were spacious but as others have commented they have skylights in some rooms which mean in the summer they are light into the evenings and light the rooms from early in the mornings.

Located inside the old town and just a short walk to the main square. Our room was a colour explosion, with a huge window and a large sky light, all good however when the sun isn't setting the room doesn't get dark. Room however is large, bathroom is basic yet comfortable, limited room to put things down, we had a fridge, comfortable bed. Breakfast can be purchased for 6 euro, however is pretty basic, suggest you go into the town centre. You can access the pool facilities for free between 6-10am.

As others have mentioned, this is essentially a leisure centre with rooms attached making it a hotel. The rooms were clean and spacious and well equipped. There was bad sewerage smell in bathroom as mentioned by another reviewer before. The leisure center facilities are great and worth the money. Its very close to city center which is a plus. There are no blockout blinds so it might be a bit hard for light sleepers in summer months.

We stayed here for 1 night before the start of our tour thank goodness it was only 1 night this place should not be called a hotel but a gym with some rooms attached our room had no window but 2 skylights which let the light in from early morning as there were no curtains breakfast room only had about 6 tables far to small the staff were not interested in hotel customers only the gym customers.

We stayed in a spacious family apartment; three single beds on the loft + sleeping bed for two in the living room. VERY colorful with green, yellow and orange walls. The Spa area was nice with various pools, saunas and therapy baths. Entrance to the spa and a large gym was included in the accommodation price. The hotel has a great and central location, next to the old town. Negative sides: It was a really bad sewage smell in the toilet in our apartment. The toilet was luckily in a separate room from the shower- and bathroom. The breakfast was very basic and located in a small room with few tables...

Room is quite spacious with a small fridge and shower. Mattresses were very good, but Mid Summer sun was shinning also by night and skylight window is not possible to make dark at all. A lot of TV channels and free WiFi. Breakfast is quite simple offering bred, porridge, cereals, yoghurt, two kind of cheese and cold cuts, eggs, sausages...You can use without fee gym and spa also in the Morning. Spa is good after excercise or if You like to swim or relax in warm water or to take spouts. One pool is outside and sunbeds also available. Next to dressing room was a small tropical sauna. Shower room was quite small. Old town is very close and just a small walk to ferry terminals. You can have food from Rimi and alcoholic drinks also between 10-22. This is a good choise!

We stayed at Braavo for two nights with two of our children in may. Was a bit put off that the reception area was under contruction during our stay and the staff had set up a temporary "reception" upstairs in the busy hall way. Service was ok and fast, mabey a bit blunt and dull. The familyroom was large but a huge set back for us was that there were three single beds upstairs and only a sofa bed downstairs! We had to open up the sofa ourselfs and make our own bed.. We dragged one matress topper from the extra bed upstairs and assumed we would get one more from the reception if we'd ask, cause the sofa was so hard without one. We wern't given one and their excuse was that the hotel is so full that they dont have extra matresses.. The gym and spa were great! Thats why we came. Breakfast was tidy a nd clean and ok, could have been more options.

This hotel had pretty basic rooms, decorated a bright yellow, lime green and orange - although while we were there some walls in the corridor were being painted chocolate brown, perhaps the owners are frustrated ice cream sellers? The room was minimally furnished (a desk, two chairs and a wardrobe - no safe). There's a pool and spa attached which were open to the public, and guests can use for free first thing. The Old Town is reached easily from the hotel and costs only 10 euros by taxi to reach from the airport. Breakfast is an odd affair, like eating in a small cafeteria at your local swimming leisure centre, which shouldn't come as a surprise as that's what you are doing. All in all, a fine, basic, no-frills hotel in a good location in a city that isn't cheap to stay or eat in.

The only thing lacking was hooks for towels in the bathroom. Location, facilities, breakfast - fantastic! A few steps from major attractions. 10 minute ride from the airport and 10 minute walk from the ferry terminal to Helsinki.

Easy journey from airport for less than 10 Euros. Check-in was smooth and then good directions to our room, which seemed to be through a labyrinth of corridors and up and down many stairs, which might have been a problem if we had really heavy cases or mobility issues, but we located our room without a problem. Room itself was a large 4 bed with 2 of the beds pushed together to give a makeshift double but there was space to move them apart if all singles were required. Walk in wet room with heated tiled floor was an absolute blessing as the weather was particularly cold during our visit. The room itself had a combination of an electric radiator and central heating and we were always warm enough whilst in the room. Our room, 220, is located right above the car park entrance which wasn't a problem for noise but meant that there was a think layer of road grim on the outside which obstructed the beautiful view of St. Olaf's Church Tower. The window could easily be opened though for the obligatory photo opportunity. There was no noticeable problem with traffic noise whether the window was open or shut although we didn't have it open too much much because of the cold outside. The room was cleaned daily and to a good standard, with towels changed regularly whether we left them on the floor for changing or hung up to re-use. Unfortunately the same cannot be said for the drinking glasses in the room which were left obviously dirty every day. We didn't make use of the leisure facilities in the hotel as there was so much to see and do in Tallinn, but the gym and pool looked like they are well used by locals which is normally a good sign for an amenity. Breakfast was able to fully satisfy my appetite to last until a late lunch. There was no problem for us with a chlorine smell indicated by another reviewer. My only small complaint about breakfast was the lack of variety, as it was the same everyday. Apparently there is a safe in reception to keep valuables but the video surveillance and secure door locks re-assured us enough to be able to leave stuff safely in the room. After checkout we were able to leave our luggage securely with reception whilst we made full use of our last day, without having to worry about lugging it around. Monica on reception was very helpful and arranged a return taxi to the airport which came only 6 minutes after requesting it and only cost 5 Euros. Overall an excellent place to stay. There was some renovation and decorating going on in the hotel and this meant that we could not use the closest entrance to our room to enter or exit the hotel, but hopefully this is work in progress that will give better facilities once finished.
