The Three Sisters Hotel

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Firstly, most of the things others have said about this hotel are true: it has character, its staff are extremely helpful and will give good recommendations for trips, restaurants, general directions etc and probably above all, it is in an ideal location for almost everything you could want to do in Tallinn. Just at the gate end of the street, you can catch a tram or bus to other parts of the city including the wonderful Kadriorg. Even though we booked through Expedia, we could contact the hotel directly in advance and were able to request a room with no connecting doors (in our experience, such rooms can lack privacy and sound proofing). This meant however that the only ones available to use were in the three which are located outside of the main building across the courtyard (used by smokers and van drivers). On arrival we were shown the two which were available and decided on number 10. It was a perfectly fine room but not exactly the old world charm we had expected. Also, even though the people staying below us weren't noisy, there wasn't too much sound insulation between us. As a consequence, we didn't really feel that we got "to know" the main hotel. Breakfast (which is superb - try the blinis) is served in the main hotel but apart from there and the reception, we couldn't get the kind of 'feel' for the Three Sisters that we might have done had we been in the main building. Nevertheless, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and again we must highlight the staff who were always attentive and helpful - the pink meringues in the bowl by reception were delicious! We also emailed the hotel in advance to arrange airport transfers and these worked out perfectly.

I booked a one night stay in The Three Sisters as a side trip to Tallinn during a visit to Finland. The hotel was amazing. It's a boutique hotel with about 20 rooms. I checked in and got an upgrade to a deluxe room. (Tallinn is not swimming with tourists in late January LOL). The room was an amazing combination of old and new. I love history and the thought of staying in a building that was built in the 1600s blew my mind! The room was beautiful with the massive beams visible and the bathroom was modern and luxurious. A perfect meld of the old and the new. The staff was delightful, friendly and spoke perfect English. If I ever come back to Tallinn, I am staying here again! BTW, the restaurant in the hotel, Bordoo, has amazing food! Five stars all around!

The most exquisite building in the old city close to everything, a staff very professional and discreet and a most wonderful room with a great armchair to relax. Breakfast is a treat in the old gallery restaurant. Close to the harbor for those who come by boat

Splended room/suite! Even a bath tub in the middle of the room. Guess if I used it? Yes, a nice experience. Breakfast superb, location good, service and personnel very pleasant. The restaurant served very good food as well!

I wanted to go somewhere where I could be spoiled for my 60th birthday, and was advised to try Tallinn. Looking through the available hotels, I really liked the look of the three sisters. I wasn't disappointed. The hotel is housed in three 14th century houses, built by a prosperous merchant for his daughters. It has been renovated beautifully. I delayed booking for a while, and as a result could only get a junior suite. This was expensive, but very nice. We had room 37 in the roof space of the right hand house as you look at the hotel from the street. It has a large, egg shaped bath (no separate shower, unfortunately), a large King sized bed, and a separate sitting area. There were two televisions. The staff was very friendly and organised a walking tour through the city for us. They also advised on the tram numbers to look for in order to visit the Kadriorg Palace. The hotel serves very good breakfasts in a charming room with an ancient painted ceiling. I would also advise eating in the hotel's Bordoo restaurant. The food was some of the best I have tasted in years.

otherwise you might get irritated by some issues like strange water flow or heating through conditioner etc. Hotel is very clean and personnel is fantastic! Not to mention the breakfast served in fancy area. My guess it is really nice in summer, walls are at least 50 cm thick

The hotel is converted from the old buildings, and the transformation is just wonderful Very spacious and comfortable, best of all, there are lots of charms Hotel is located in the center of old town, easy access to all things, just wonderful Last but not the least, the hotel staff is kind, courteous and always ready to help

The Three Sisters Hotel is situated at the northern end of Pikk Street, the main thoroughfare that runs the length of Old Tallinn. It benefits from being within the city walls, but away from the main tourist attractions. They are however only a 5-10 minute walk through the cobbled streets. Since September 2017 it has also been accessible via the tram system from the airport taking less than half an hour. Tram number 4 will take you to Hobbujaama where you can change (same platform) to a number 2 for the few stops to Linnahall. This tram stop is just outside the city walls near the tower called Fat Margaret and a two-minute stroll to the hotel even with cases. The hotel consists of three very distinctive, 650-year-old buildings that have served as warehouses and merchants houses. Modern facilities have been inserted within the ancient walls whilst maintaining the character. Our DK guide book actually listed the hotel as a tourist attraction because of the well preserved and photogenic exterior. On arrival we were greeted by Tanel who spoke perfect and idiomatic English. We were given a “small upgrade” (his words) from a superior room to a junior suite which was a huge space that ran the depth of the property. Nothing was too much trouble for Tanel during our stay and on our second night he secured us the last table in a popular, but tiny Estonian restaurant. Our room had a seating area with a laptop computer provided and a TV. The second room had a large queen-sized bed and an open plan roll top bath/shower. There was also a second TV. There was more than adequate wardrobe and drawer space. It was very comfortable and difficult to fault. Breakfast takes place in the Angel Room which has a frescoed ceiling. It’s a pleasant space that overlooks the central courtyard. It’s largely a buffet affair but there is a menu to order other items cooked to order. We were served by Nina who, on the second day, remembered that I had coffee with cold milk and my wife had decaffeinated with hot milk. A small detail but much appreciated. On our first night we ate in the fine dining restaurant which is called Bordoo. The service and the standard of cooking were exemplary. Our Roe Deer main courses were superb. The Three Sisters lists a stellar list of previous guests including our own queen and the rock band Deep Purple, but it’s not stuffy and our reception was perfectly matched to our needs. I’m sure that they could do ultra-formal if necessary as well; a rare trick. We were also staying between Christmas and New Year and our past experience elsewhere has been that the service is a bit flat. Staff are weary and you are left feeling a bit like those last few houseguests that overstay their welcome. That emphatically wasn’t the case here which bodes well for other times of year. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and were particularly well served by Tanel on reception and Nina at breakfast but also the rest of the staff. We hope to come back again and explore Greater Tallinn and Estonia more generally.

visited in early december , walked from the port , wheeling cases through the snow , took 15 to 20 minutes , would have been 5 mins by taxi . the hotel is just inside the entrance of the walled medieval city [ which is justifiably a world heritage site ] . our room wasn't ready , we had arrived at 11.00 am , and we were asked to wait 20 minutes , and would we like some coffee , or wine . we had coffee outside in the courtyard . We smoke , and occasionally went to the courtyard , and a member of staff regularly came out to offer coffee, which was very nice , and we were never charged for them , which is a lovely touch! our room was ready , we had booked a suite , but were upgraded to the 2nd best room in the hotel. floor area as big as our first residence. large sitting room , sofas , desks , chairs , lovely comfortable bed , separate dressing room , large bathroom , small balcony , nespresso , kettle , fridge tv , and everything you could want , all in a beamed oaken room , absolutely charming. Breakfast was very good , hot and cold buffet , all fresh and local ,and an a la carte menu as well , very nicely done to sum it up , the hotel , and its staff , are all you should expect from a Relais and Chateaux property , thank you for a lovely stay

Service was exellent and friendly. The athmosphere in the hotel was warm, welcoming and friendly. Our room was beautiful, quiet and clean. we ordered dinner from hotels restaurant in to our room and it was just exellent! Alltogether this is one of the best hotels I have visited!
