Recent guest reviews

Location of hotel is perfect for a 24 hour visit to the old town of Tallinn. Next to town square and central to all the highlight. Room lovely and the staff are fantastic. Highly recommend whether solo or group.

The hotel was as reviewed by other guests on Trip Advisor - fantastic spot, very comfortable. We stayed mid week in February when there were only a handful of tourists around and the hotel was quite empty, therefore lacking in a bit of atmosphere. We booked a basic room so can't say much about the individual room decor etc. I would like to say that the staff were great - a collection of international students, that were very keen to help and great company. Breakfast was also very good - a wide range of options cooked to order, and nice room in the interesting basement of the hotel. Good value. Interesting old building. Would recommend,

Great warm service with clean, equally warm room. Highly recommend. Right in the Old Town centre, was very convenient and close to everything. Breakfast was fabulous in the medieval cafe, super yummy Egg Benedict !

I stayed here for a weekend break with my husband and I'm so glad I picked this hotel, the staff were so friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble for them. The location of the hotel is excellent for exploring the old town with bars and restaurants nearby. My room was amazing, I stayed in the courthouse suite which had a sauna and a fireplace, the features in the room were beautiful and the bed was very comfortable, the courtyard outside was also lovely and peaceful. My room was cleaned daily to a very high standard, it was so nice I found it hard to leave! The hotel had lots of historic charm and the breakfast was tasty with good portions,additionally it had a great bar. This hotel made my stay at Tallin wonderful and I would recommend anyone to stay here. Thanks to all the staff Merchant House.

This hotel is right in the middle of the old town which makes it a very comfortable place to stay in. The staff was nice especially the girl at the breakfast very welcoming and sweet. The room was clean but a bit small. It was three cozy nights spent at this hotel which made our experience in Tallinn much brighter. PS don't come here with big luggages as your room might be at the second floor and there are no elevators nor anyone who can help you in carrying them :(

If you want to be in the heart of the action in Old Town Tallinn, you just can't beat the Merchant's House Hotel. It is literally just steps away from the Old Town Square. This is the perfect location if you don't have a car and yet want to explore Old Town on foot. We arrived in Tallinn aboard the Viking ferry from Helsinki and because we are on a budget, we opted to schlep our bags from the ferry terminal all the way to the hotel. It took us nearly a half hour, but it is doable if you are considering the same. Oh, and my wife and I are in our mid-50's and in just moderate shape. But, if you want to pay, the hotel will arrange a car to pick you up or you can catch a cab, but the cab can't drop you off directly in front of the hotel as it is so close to the square that it is in the pedestrian only zone. The staff did everything possible to make our stay more pleasant from recommending things to see and do and to giving us late check out. There is free wifi in the rooms as well as in the cozy lobby with it's nice warm fire. Oh, and the breakfast buffet in the morning was delicious. I would definitely stay here again.

The hotel was located in the heart of the beautiful old town, wonderful location. The building had a stylish, but unique atmosphere thanks to the beautiful old building. The staff was helpful and friendly. We had a very pleasant stay.

We went to the merchant house on the 28th December until the 2nd jan 2018. The rooms are clean and provide toiletries, plus dressing owns, slippers and a hair dryer. the bathrooms are bigger and well kept. The breakfast suits all tastes including the english. The hotel is quirky in parts and is old but with a modern twist, it needs a bit of TLC in parts but good value for money and very close to the town square. The staff are very helpful.

This was our second stay in this hotel and we absolutely loved it. Merchant's House is situated just some 50 meters from the Raekoja plats. Its staff is helpful and polite. Rooms in this old building are brought to the 21st century without losing their mediaeval charm. The value for money is great, this hotel is cheaper then most similar hotels in its vicinity, but the quality of the service doesn't lag behind. Strongly recommended!

Location could not be better, 30 paces from the square, which is lively over the Christmas period. Hotel is, in our view, excellent, breakfast is served in vaulted cellars, and a great range of food is available, smoked salmon and herring was my favourite. parts of the hotel dates back to the 13th and 16th century, rooms are modern with more than adequate heating. The staff could not be more helpful, and our bedroom was spacious and enough room for a sofa. Clean and tidy, yes could do with some localalised maintainance but not enough to spoil our trip. It is the third stay we have had here, over the years, and will probably be back again.
