Perfect choice if your coming to Tallinn. Convenient location, good service, friendly staff, spacious and nice rooms. Underground parking, sauna in some rooms, family friendly, delicious lunch. Highly recommended

Nice hotel with good location, close to ferry terminal and walking distance to the old town. Spacious room, good breakfast. Only one thing I was missing - is lack of water in the room. It is mini bar and kettle - but Boyle of free water is a must in such hotels standard.

Very good location for ferry to Helsinki. I liked that it was possible to open window in my room and get fresh air. We arrived late, some 20 minutes before closing the restaurant. However staff was ready to serve us.

Hotel Euroopa is a rather large hotel for business as well as for tourists (including groups). It is situated next to the terminals (on a walking distance) at the harbour of Tallinn. Although this is a busy area with new developments, rooms are quiet and comfortable. The old city center is a 10 minutes walk. The hotel has a parking garage (not complementary) for cars. It is probably not the best in town, but offers a good value for money. Staff is friendly even in busy times at the lobby. We stayed in the hotel for 3 days and could leave our car in the parking during our trip to Helsinki ! Thanks for this service.

While away on business i stayed in a few of the hotels across Estonia. This by far was the most relaxing, had the best nights sleep, lovely food and even sports massage to see me on my way :) helpful staff and in general a lovely hotel on all aspects.

Good location in Tallinn but there are a lot of civil works around the hotel which is not the best situation. For the rest, good value for money. The breakfast is correct and the view from the room pleasant.

Stayed here for 4 nights on business, it was super convenient as right next to where we were working. Lovely modern hotel, I had a harbour facing room with a small balcony which was nice but a bit of a rattle when we had a stormy night. Room was comfy if a little hot for me even with full air con on. Shower was ok but could of done with a bit more power. We didn’t eat dinner but did have breakfast, good choice but not much flavour. All staff were friendly throughout the stay. Drinks are expensive though, €3 for a tiny bottled water is poor. There are lots of hotels of this caliber in Tallinn, is this the best for the money...probably not but nothing to complain about either.

I was attending an event for 2 nights and was promised an upgraded see view room. However, upon arrival the front desk person noted that such room has been requested by the organizers of the event, however, he said I have to pay 20 EUR extra (per night:?) for that type of room. I refused and got the standard room that was facing another window about 100 feet away. The main idiosyncrasy of the room were beds. Since I stayed myself, I was not sure whether this room was supposed to be for a couple or not. It had 2 separate twin beds, but the beds were placed right next to each other, but with a small hole in between: so it would be awkward by both not intimate friends sharing the room or a couple as well. I found myself on the first night falling into that middle hole and waking up, as I toss a lot when I sleep, so on my second night I took two thin mattresses on each bed, and rearranged them across the beds. Finally, I could have a decent sleep. Funny that the website of the hotel is bragging about famous Estonian designer decorating that room. I cannot get inside that person head what great idea he or she had with such an awkward design?? I also was quite surprised that hotel offers its sauna for a free use only during certain hours (morning or early afternoon). I stayed in many north European hotels, and I never had this situation that you have to pay for sauna - it was always free. At least the internet was free, which is a relief, and it was pretty good most of the time. I also liked that the room had a kettle with variety of teas. On the other hand, there was no real shampoo, hair conditioner or a lotion in the shower. Only body wash and shower caps were provided. Breakfast was very nice with a lot of choices, including fruits and vegetables. One problem was that most of the tags were in Estonian (NO English translation), so sometimes it was difficult to guess what the particular food item is. However, when we went to eat at the restaurant at night, the portions were tiny and nothing special. On Saturday night there was some singing and dancing near the reception area, that was fun to watch. The distance to the old city center was manageable. All in all, I would consider this hotel again if I have to go back to Tallinn.

There’s a lot to commend about the Euroopa. It’s a modern “3 star plus” level hotel, but they’ve managed to incorporate a strong amount of individuality into the design that makes it feels original and gives the place a bit of character. That character is distinctly Scandinavian - lovely use of curved woods, flower patterns on the carpets etc. The rooms are welcoming and the hotel feels friendly. Essentially the hotel feels like you’re staying somewhere a little bit special, which is no mean feat for a modern hotel in this price category. Inside the rooms, the beds are extremely comfortable with big pillows; the curtains provide total black out, there’s free fast Wi-fi (10 Mbps), and the windows open fully to allow ventilation. The bathrooms are again Scandinavian style wet rooms with a huge shower area, great pressure, but fairly basic complementaries. The location is by the harbour with a 10 minute walk to the Old Town. The immediate area is nothing special but it’s not far to hit some really wonderful trendy designer cafés and restaurants, and indeed the centre of Tallinn itself. My major criticism concerns breakfast (again, in the Baltics - this seems to be a theme). It’s a nice room but this is cheap pretty poor food. There’s watery over-sweetened yoghurt, one type of bread, virtually no pastries to be seen, nasty juice made out of water and concentrate from a machine, no decent coffee (it’s from a vat and was weak) etc. There was a huge selection of cooked items, but none of it looked very appealing to me. The scrambled eggs were pretty poor - just tasteless big blocks of cooked egg. At the price of around £55 in September the hotel offers really good value for money. If they reduced the number of hot items at breakfast and upped the quality of what is on offer instead, this would be a very good hotel indeed. Instead it’s just a good one, at a decent price. + Quality, original décor and feel + Comfortable rooms you’ll sleep well in + Great, fast, Free Wi-fi + Useable location - Mediocre Breakfast In general, I’d be happy to come again.

Hotel Euroopa has been my home away from home in Tallinn for nearly ten years now. It has changed its name a couple of times - but still has the same owners and same management. Perfectly located with sea vew and indoor basement parking. It is hard to find a better choice for a business hotell in Tallinn. Direct connection with the city port offers only seconds transfertime from the ferries. Mixed ambience with a lot of tourists in the summer.
