This was a clean and comfortable hotel with a good spa/aquapark. The spa had an outdoor jacuzzi and many saunas. Good value for the price. There was noise from the nearby gym, but it ended at 9-10 pm.
My partner and I stayed for 3 nights Mon-Wed. This was my first visit to Tallinn and chose the hotel due to it's close proximity to the Old Town and the Spa facilities. The hotel is an easy 10/15 minute walk from the tram stop to/from the main Bus Station, We used the #4 service, and was indeed a short walk to the Old Town. Our room, which was on the second floor with a snowy view of St Olafs cathedral, was clean and tidy with TV and WiFi . It might've been good to have coffee making facilities but that's a tiny point . The bathroom was spotless with huge walk-in shower, plenty of clean towels. We initially thought that we could only have free use of the Spa in the morning for a couple of hours only - but we could use it for free the whole stay! Bonus! There are separate male and female saunas (be prepared to strip off!) and other mixed saunas, salt sauna, pool and outdoor heated plunge pool - great when it's snowing! So it's worth checking if you can use the spa facilities all the time. Towels are provided here. There is busy gym but we didn't use it. We needed our ferry tickets to Helsinki printed and the reception staff gladly assisted , thank you! Breakfast was good and included, plenty of coffee, hot and cold food , eggs, sausages, cheeses, bread for toasting, juice, yoghurt so plenty to choose. The breakfast area doubled as a cafe/bar so open for coffee or alcohol during the day. For its location, facilities and service we received we would definitely recommend a stay here!
We stayed at Braavo hotel 3 nights and enjoyed it very much. The room was not big but there was enough space for two. The room was clean and warm and bathroom was also ok. Nothing bad to say about the room. Breakfast was small but it was enough for us. Location of the hotel was very good. It is near the old city and you can find good restaurants near the hotel. We travelled with car so the parking place was good for us. It was safe and we were happy to pay 10 eur/night from it. There were many different saunas in the spa area which was nice. Also there were many pools. We liked the spa area a lot. We used also the gym which was big and there were many equipments. You could always find a free equipment to train what you wanted. Big plus for the free entry to spa and gym.
Basic but very good value with great spa facilities. Perfect for visiting the old town. Breakfast is simple and could have got a tad boring. Check in is also the spa foyer but don't be put off as staff are friendly and helpful.
Mom, dad and two boys (4 and 7) were very satisfied with this hotel. Location between the sea port and the old town was good and our boys really enjoyed swimming in warm pools suitable for their age, height and swimming skills. The boys also enjoyed the family room with two floors ;). Parents think that family room with a fridge and a little kitchen was practical for families.
Location of this hotel is actually quite good. It is bit hard to find if you visit that place first time. The room was okay for that price but that is actually all. It was bit hard to adjust the water temperature of the shower and I am not so sure that the sheets were totally clean. Breakfast was not worth to even mention.
As far as the Hotel goes it's not so good, I feel the rooms were just an add on to the business. Room was clean but unlike other reviews there was no fridge and two massive skylights in the ceiling and the worst pillows I have ever tried to sleep on and towels that were paper thin. The location is great so I can see why our tour company booked it but it was the worse hotel of my five week holiday.
Hotel is a stretched description as people have said, it's a leisure centre with gaudily decorated rooms attached. Well located a quick walk from the old town centre with large parking (noisy). We were able to leave our bags in a very tightly packed luggage room prior to check-in, as we had arrived early. Check in was efficient and rooms are very clean, with mini-fridge so you can stock up at the Rimi nearby. We had a large wet room as our shower/toilet. Protect your toilet rolls people, they get soaked! Room was large on first floor of adjacent building, with 5-6 steps down to the room on entry from corridor. On reading other reviews we were lucky not to have any skylights, just a half a window at floor level. Curtains are pretty transparent, so not great if you need dark to sleep bring an eye mask. Room was warm in August and no a/c, so it was the usual choice between losing sleep due to noise (bring earplugs) or heat. SPA is available free of charge as long as you go in the morning and are only there for 1.5 hours! Very specific instructions presumably to ensure the best revenue for the leisure centre. Husband was determined to go before breakfast and he enjoyed his visit. Breakfast however is a scrum, not enough seating areas and very basic choices as things run out quickly and are slow to be replenished. That said, if all you need is a place to sleep and treat the spa and brekkie as a bonus, then its absolutely fine. Overall a clean place to sleep (eye mask and ear plugs required), quick to get into the old city for the culture and the new city with restaurants and bars are close too.
The hotel is actually the largest sport center in Estonia! The room was standard, basic, the swimming pools are good but it lacks of a decent lap pool for serious swimming. However there are a number of excellent spas which really help you to relax, and the sauna in the change room is good too, it's very important when you walk around all day sightseeing and come back to have a sauna and spa! The hotel's internet is fast and reliable, the free breakfast is basic but sufficient.
As the SPA is advertised along with the hotel package, don't get high hopes for the SPA when choosing the hotel. Sauna in guys' shower is closed for repairs for months, they recommend using the general spa saunas. Wood-heated sauna was quite nice, ..when it worked. It is off 4 days of the week, but guess what, on the rest of the three days when it is scheduled to be working there is a notice "Not working TODAY due to technical problems". Steam sauna used to be nice too, but now for several weeks the door is broken and does not stay closed. Who has any experience with steam saunas, knows, what a useless moist room it is if the door fails to keep the steam inside. Ventilation in locker rooms is usually non-existent. When inquiring at the reception, when might the saunas be fixed, I get a response "Am I a repair man?!". But well, gym is kind of ok and it is in the centre.
