Our room was nice, with an awesome view. The breakfast is great. Everything works. This hotel isn't the moast modern one, but it is tidy and very reliable. We stay night in Viru nowdays every time we visit Tallinn. Our kids as well love the hotell.

Stayed for one night with my family. Nice and clean family room, a bit small but enough for a short trip. Great location close to old town and bus stops if you want to travel further, direct access to shopping centre. Staff was nice and helpful, also towards children.

It is too expensive for soviet times room with dirty windows looking at the sea. But you can enjoy beautiful views of Tallin from 10 th floor or higher. Near the old city of Tallin. Enough place to park you cat. Breakfast was various and tasty.

Lovely hotel, we stayed on the 17th floor and the view was great! The room was spotlessly clean. The breakfast was wonderful, food was delicious with great choices. I would come back to this hotel. Staff polite and helpful. Thank you !

I have stayed in Viru before and will stay in the future. It's nice to be able to bring my dogs with me. Breakfast is versatile and good. Rooms are quiet, clean and nice. Staff is friendly and some of them speak Finnish.

The hotel is one of the historical places and must to be seen places in Tallinn. It is located in the heart of Tallinn. The hotel is fully renovated , very comfortable. The staff is friendly and supportive.

Hotel Viru is really conveniently located in the heart of Tallinn. There is only a short walk to the old town and all the services are nearby. This hotel has a long history as it was very popular place for Finns to stay during the Soviet times. Nowadays it's comfortable, modern enough and convenient hotel to stay. The higher you have the room the better are the views over the city of Tallinn.

Location of Hotel Viru is absolutely exellent. Shopping possibilities are very good and also cafes and all kind of restaurants are just a short walk away. Old town of Tallinn is also close. It's always nice to sit down and relax some of the restaurants aroud Raekoja Plats.

I was fun to get a free ticket to the nightclub in the basement of the Hotel Viru as part of the KGB Museum tour. The club was fun to visit and was what I expected very Eastern European and fun to people watch all come together on the dance floor.

Room was modern and clean, with a nice view to old town. Beds were comfortable and the staff was friendly. The location of this hotel is very good, it's a walking distance away from the harbour, train station and the main attractions. We didn't really spend much time at the hotel, but I've been there a couple of times before this trip.
