Recent guest reviews

This was my first trip to Tallinn, and I can only recommend this hotel. Its perfectly situated in the old town and has a lot of charm. Whilst its an old hotel, its well maintained, clean and has great staff who are always keen to help.

The hotel is right in the old town and convenient for everything. The room that we had was fine when we were there, late autumn. I would not like to have been there in the summer. It looked out onto and was level with the courtyard and I can imagine is quite noisy then. We had to close the curtains when changing as there were no blinds or net curtains. The bathroom was up a little flight of stairs which was interesting during the night. The breakfast was fairly basic and the hot food was not terribly hot except for on the Sunday morning when they cooked it to order. Sadly, the whole hotel gave the impression of being due for an update. That said, it was pleasant enough and the staff were very helpful. One quirk is that if you want tea or coffee making facilities in the room you have to ask Reception for them and they only have the sachets of coffee that already have milk powder in. Also housekeeping don't wash or replace the cups or supplies. You have to ask at Reception.

Cosy hotel, with a very good location. A bit special with the only shower being in the the main room with the bathtub without anything covering up the water from dripping all over the room. Breakfest not matching hotel stars.

The hotel is very quiet, perfectly located in the centre of the Old Town near the Town Hall square and a couple of minutes from the TIC. It is in a beautiful sprawling old merchants house full of nooks and crannies. Our large room was across the courtyard, simply but attractively decorated with a large wardrobe, a big very comfortable bed and a huge elegant bathroom. One couple had a n upstairs suite which was also extremely comfortable. The Breakfast in excellent, a cold buffet and a good hot menu. The staff were all very helpful, organising a day trip, airport transport and the Bastion Tunnel tour. They patiently directed us to attractions and eateries and went on line to answer questions, providing printouts. there is a small bar, a couple of large, comfortable common seating areas. Everyone was very impressed with both the facilities and the service. There is a sauna that no one took advantage of and a restaurant in the evenings. Would thoroughly recommend this as the perfect location to enjoy what ius an exceptionally lovely city. Tallinn is immaculately clean, safe and friendly and English is widely spoken.

Pretty little hotel smack in the middle of the Old Town. The room was as we expected and the upkeep is really good. The staff is friendly and the breakfast was amazing. It has a sauna you can use for free, a bar, free wifi, a mini bar in the room and also heating/aircondition. TV has foreign programs as well. Would definitely come back!

literally around the corner of the old town main square this historic building has a very cozy hotel inside. very quiet rooms, nice excellent breakfast, very friendly stuff. beer pub across the street, cigar lounge next door, romantic medieval old town - what else you need for a romantic break :)

Very quiet location depite its proximity to the main square. Room was fab with a huge comfortable soft bed. Breakfast was fresh and delicious. Staff really friendly and attentive. Well worth a stay and a great baae to explore

An old charming hotel, with the quirks and peculiarities that go with a building that is several hundred years old. The staff are nice and helpful. Breakfast is served in the labyrinth of the basement. It is quaint. Nothing more to say! We had a room on the second floor. Very big room. Nice view...but the room was furnished in an eclectic manner. Wish the bedroom had a separate room for the bath, but again it is a several hundred year old building. Please take note that there are no elevators in the hotel. All steps...and I think there are four or five floors to the hotel. I wish I could say the hotel was "great," however it is a solid "good" hotel, and fairly priced.

We wanted an historic room and the staff kindly upgraded us to a room with a wall and woodpainted ceiling protected by UNESCO . Remarkable to sleep in a room from the 14th century . The old city of Tallinn has been lovingly restored and is well worth a couple of days spent here .

This hotel is located in the old town of Tallinn, and is very close to all the most important tourist attractions. Is very quiet, and the service is very good, the breakfast is great and with a lot of things. Totally recommended.
