Rixwell Old Town Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Excellent location against the ancient city wall in a quiet corner of the Old City. Rooms are tiny but clean. We had a wonderful view from room 309. Breakfast was good and the restaurant area very appealing and pleasant. Simple, basic, but value for money. Would have loved to have the use of a small kettle and maybe a second pillow, but otherwise it made a superb base for our explorations.

The Rixwell Old Town hotel integrates medieval structures and is part of the old city wall. Hence you can hear the traffc from the street outside the city wall --- but ear pkugs are provided in the room for those who need them. The rooms are small yet cosy and offer all you need: bed(s), table, chair, wardrobe, a tiny practical bathroom with a towel heater, a mini bar. The only thing I personally missed was a hairdryer. Breakfast was served in a beautiful room that integrated parts of a medieval horse mill. It consisted of a buffet comprising hot and cold items plus fresh coffee and juices. I enjoyed the friendly staff and the comfort of the heated rooms.

Dears, Good hotel, w great location in the old Town heart. I suggest to order Superior Double room, even for one person. 54Eur per night. Room is clean. Staff is friendly. Breakfast is standart. It is good value for money. Have a nice stay in Tallinn 😉

Friendly and helpful reception.Clean and quiet room with comfortable bed.Great location for visiting Tallinn.Only down side it the toilet paper,needs upgrading.Breakfast was ok,lots of choice with herring,salad,hot bacon,eggs etc

Good sides to pick this hotel: excellent location close to the heart of old town, good view from window, Breakfast basic, but tasty. Bad side: it was cold inside, because wind from closed window was worth to mention. Summary: average and basic accommodation in the beautiful old town of Tallinn.

I find paying at arrival fully ok. But at our arrival to the hotel something in Swedbank's service was down and the hotel's Swebank card reader did not accept credit cards.. We proposed to pay when the service is up again but were told that we have to pay before we can get our room keys. Luckily we had enough cash to pay the room, the closest ATM is far away. The room was small but clean. The bed was good, also the wifi in our room. The breakfast was ok although I missed orange juice and more crispy bacon. Service was ok except the cash demand surprise.

We enjoyed our stay at the Meriton/rixwell hotel.great location,friendly staff,comfortable room,bathroom with floor heater and good breakfast.the only point would be the poor sound proofed walls.we could hear the neighbors using the toilet.

Was a little bit disappointment - great location in Old city, but not so much old atmosphere inside. I had 50% disscount, so it was ok, but for full price it's not worth it. Breakfast was good, but poor and there wasn't good service.

I reserve room from that hotel month ago for my parents for three days. I went there and pay it also month ago so everything is order when my parent arrive. Today when we went there, lady in reception said that we dont have room for there because RIXWELL just bought hotel from meriton that i should go to meriton and ask my money backs. Needles to say my parents was very confused about situation. So we went to only remaining meriton hotel in tallinn to ask about our situation and they directed us back to this rixwell. Woman in reception couldnt care less, serving past us only russian guests wich was parently more important. After huge argue this lady finally calls to manager, who kindly gives us room 004.. which was literally below cellar floor. 15 feet below ground level, where you really can feel Rixwell-hospitality. Sugar coated 'not welcome' somebody might say. I reserved rooms from meriton several years before, and after owner change to this Rixwell.. we get hat full of crap. I really miss Meriton trademark hospitality. I wouldnt recommend this rixwell for anyone, because plans you make months before dont apply here. Hotels should give you safe place to be, and dont put you back in the streets with your payment-receipts and say that its not their problem.

Stayed here with the wife last summer. The hotel was that bad I was expecting somebody to jump out with a tv crew and laugh!! This did not happen and the bad experience continued ! I had my door open by hotel manager and cleaner accusing me of smoking and I was not !! They let themselves into my room and started looking in the toilet for evidence my partner and I don't smoke !! After what we taught was cleared up we decided to check out the following morning three days early hotel staff tried to fine me for smoking in the room again this was not paid even after the treat of the police been called BEWARE DO NOT STAY HERE Sorry I had to even give this one star as this was possibly the worst hotel I ever stayed in Faulty towers comes to mind when I think about it
