Very good business hotel, with nice meeting rooms, only 20 minutes from airport by taxi. It is also 15 minutes walking from Old Town. Rooms are quite clean and also Gym is fine. Wi-fi is free and really excellent.
I was there several years ago and then it was a bit run down. The room was nice, clean and comfortable. It was also less noisy. Service was fast and friendly. I could not complain about breakfast - enough choice and fresh, and some Estonian touch in it. Only small problem I noticed the coffee machines needed several times assistance.
All I needed, it was clean and modern. However the cleaning quality on the second day wasn't as good a 4 star hotel should be. I left ironing board in the morning, once returned it was still in the middle of the room and bed was unprofessionally made. However, I didn't mind . This is why I still gave 5 stars. I had breakfast and lunch in the hotel and both were amazing.
Overall the hotel is very good but two issues, one unacceptable and the other unnecessary make me give 3 stars! When we arrived the toilet bowl was not clean and I don't remember any hotel where this happened before! The other issue was the locker! I understand that Estonia is a hi-tech country but replacing the code lock by a bank card reader is not an improvement ... when cards are not read! Yes, I followed the instructions well! So, no locker during my 2 days stay, but perhaps not an issue because I forgot my smartphone at the room, and no problem at all!
On a tour of Baltic Capitals we had a chance to make comparisons between several hotels. We enjoyed this hotel finding the renovated decor pleasing and the location good. Everything worked well, good lifts, good food and efficient staff. This is a good choice.
Nice place near the historical center (10 minutes of walking), friendly staff, delicious food. Stockmann and Solaris supermarkets are near, very clean rooms and bathrooms. Quick check out and 20 minutes by bus to the airport.
Room was clean and comfortable. Wifi was free and available everywhere in the building. Our room was on the 7th floor but the lift ( elevator ) provision was adequate and there were few delays and none serious. We visited on aTitan tour and on our first night there was a set menu which was in fact both tasty and adequate. Alternatives were produced for a couple of us who didn't fancy the set item. Staff in the restaurant and on reception were friendly, capable and charming but the bar staff were not fully effective. There was also a strange oddity that not all the wines available in the restaurant were also available in the bar.
There was a conference in the hotel and the hotel provided a deal for the accomodation for the conference guests. Check in was fast. The reception staff don't come off as the most friendliest but I guess it's typical for Estonian service sector. They were being strictly professional though. The room I booked was a standard one. The room size was larger than I expected. It was very clean. The temperature gets quite hot when your keycard is not inserted and the thermostat read 33 degrees Celsius when entering. The aircon is very effective and the room got cool really fast after turning the aircon on. The downside of that is that the aircon is really loud even at the lowest setting, Especially at night it started making a weird clinking noise which was loud enough to wake me up. But keeping the aircon on is a must, at least during summer. There were really no noises coming from outside through windows (I was on the 12th floor), the corridor or any other rooms so the noise insulation was great. The interior is modern and the furniture was in good shape. There's a minibar and and electronic safe in the room. Also the room included an iron and ironing board. Bed was really comfy and pillows provided were maybe the best I've ever had in hotel. The room had a good working wifi. The bathroom is ok size, and my had a bathtub. I am really nitpicking here but the bathtub had a hair in it and so did the anti slip mat for the bathtub. Continuing the nit picking, the toilet paper they provide is a really low quality one, I would expect better for a hotel of this reputation. The bathtub was a bit of a letdown. It's very short and not deep enough. I am really short person but on the heaveir side and the water level too low, most of my body was out of the water than in the water. I understand the bathtub size is limited by the bathroom size but perhaps they could be a little deeper tubs. Also the overflow drain was way too low on the tub. Also standing for the shower was just perfect for a short person but I would think even an average height male may have problems with the shower head being so low. The room key must be in the key slot on the wall when in the room. Even the bathroom will not have light without the key (inconvenient if you really need to use the bathroom fast when coming in). This is also a problem if you would like to charge any of your devices when you're out of the room since if you're alone, you'll only have one key and the electric outlets will not have power when the key is not in. The breakfast was good and the queues were quite minimal. As for the conference, everything seemed to work well from the hotel's side. The checkout was again fast and with similar professional attitude. Overall I could come back to this hotel especially if the price would be the same.
The hotel was opened in 1980 for Moscow summer olympics, but it has been completely refurbished several times. So everything is modern. The Old Town is 800 metres from the hotel. The Port is 2 km and the airport 3 km away. The hotel has 26 floors. On the top floor are a gym, a swimming pool and saunas. All offer wonderful views of the city and the Tallinn Bay. The hotel has 390 stylishly furnished rooms. The 13th floor is for 6 Jewel Suites and 1 Presidential Suite. Our Junior Suite was located on the 12th floor facing to the south which is the least favourable side for views. Otherwise the suite was nice. It was quite spacious and stylish. It could be easily seen that it has been two standard rooms before. There were two small bathrooms: one with a bathtub and one with a shower and a sauna. The Suites and business class rooms can order a room service breakfast without any extra charge. It was excellent. The warm dish was still hot when it arrived. There was an oven in the serving cart.
I spent 6 nights at this hotel and I have to say I was amazed by the quality of service and design of the room I got. I stayed almost on the top floor with the view on the bay. Upon arrival receptionist apologized (!!) that she could not upgrade me (gold card) to the higher category the first night because the hotel was fully booked but she offered me an upgrade from the second night. The second night I was moved to the superior room on the 24th floor - very clean and nicely decorated room. The hotel is almost in the city center so I didn't need aby transportation - everything was in the walking distance. Breakfast was fabulous, cafeteria was delightful. Bed was extremely comfortable however the swimming pool needs a refurbishment. I can't complain about anything, really!
