Lillekula Hotel

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Hotel that offers a good price performance ratio. Good location, walking distance to old town. Breakfast is simple, but of good quality. Rooms are also rather plain, but very clean and the surrounding area offers a nice quite location and night.

This place suite for sleeping but it doesn't do that pretty well either. Room that i have was not cleaned well. Breakfast was a really minimalistic for my needs and therefore i have to eat a second breakfast in another place. Positive is that price is low. It do what it is suppose to do: offering you a place to put your head and a shower, but that is it.

The hotel is an old house turned in hotel. Not clean, the bathroom has mold. Untill you stay there, nobody comes to clean your room. The breakfast starts only at 8 which is too late if you want to leave earlier. The personal doesn't speak english very good. The hotel is 20 minutes walking distance from the old town. Also Tallinn is extremely beautiful, this hotel did not live up to my expectation.

This hotel has the bare minimum of everything - be it beds, bathroom, breakfast, friendliness of staff and extras. It's just good enough for a short stay in Tallinn. It's got free parking and you can walk into the city. If you expect more, stay away.

I've stayed in this hotel three times recently. The two first times were ok, nothing to complain. But the third time is the reason why I give this bad review. I reserved a room through a reservation site for one night. I was traveling with night ferry, so I would be checking in around 1 AM. I wrote a message saying that I'd be checking in at that time since I know they close their gates around midnight and they might be sleeping. They do have 24h reception, so it's ok to check in whenever. I arrive at the hotel and the gate is closed. I find a doorbell and ring. Nothing. Ring again. Again. I ring it in the rain for several minutes pondering if I should just climb the wall and leave my car on the street when finally someone opens the gate so I can drive in. I go in and ask for my room. They ask for my name and say "no reservation." I say I do have one and it's paid for through the agency. "You have not paid, so no reservation." I'm baffled. I take out the email from the agency that has all the information. Reservation dates, paid amounts etc. "No, this says this is what you have to pay" (the email is in Finnish, but the difference between those words is very small so they should understand). I explain that no, this clearly says it's been paid. "No, it's not been paid" and she just stares at me. No offer of reserving a room then and there, or paying again. Nothing. Just staring. I ask her to call the agency. "I can't." Why? "It's night." But they have 24h service. "I can't call at night." On and on we go, when finally I notice another section in the email that even more clearly says "Paid X €, to be paid 0 €" and finally she accepts that I have paid and starts the reservation and check in process. I finally get a room, after half an hour from arriving and can finally get to sleep in the middle of the night so I can continue my traveling at least somewhat rested in the morning. They really should get into some kind of service mentality and not stick to the old habits of just saying "no" and staring at people when they are wrong themselves. Other than that the hotel is ok, rooms are clean and the location is very good for traveling to/from the ferries. I do not, however, recommend arriving at night, or arriving without calling and making sure they actually got the reservation. Seems they don't really have the best systems or attitude.

Estonians don't really like talk much more than what they are asked for. The location is not bad, 10 minutes walk from the Old Town and breakfast some coffee, tea, toasts... nothing special. But it is quite cheap for what you can find in Tallinn, this is their best point. It was the cheaper place that I found having a room with bathroom.

Average hostel located about 20 mins (walking) away from city center. Not very good facilities (including small size beds) but at affordable price. Very friendly staff. If you don´t find anything else it could be your option. Don´t expect much though.

Perfect hotel for modest people who are looking for cheap bed and just something breakfast, many people said in the reviews that the beds are bad but I think those was good. Only fridge was missing but still I liked Lillekula

Basic room with small tv and large fridge. Bed was bad. Breakfast is poor, including bread and cheese. 15 min walk to old city. Free parking area and easy to come. Very peaceful neighbourhood. Receptionist was helpful.

There's all that you need: bed and breakfast. Service was superb! Only one thing that might bother you is a bed which keeps some creak noise when you are moving on the bed, but if you have accustomed to same thing at home, it's not a problem. :) Thank you!
