It was a nice atmosphere in this very old building, steps and corridors and huge suites. Excellent location just few steps from the Market Place. Friendly customer service. Although the room was nice... it wasn't possible to wash your hands in the toilet, there was only the toilet seat. You had to walk through the room and use the wash...

The hotel was arranged as a last minute surprise for my daughter's 8th birthday. check in was a breeze and we were escorted to our suite by the one of constantly helpful front desk staff. The hotel is located very close to the main square in Tallinn and we started out from there to quickly explore the Old Town. Later...

We were very pleased with our room, it was large with separate sitting area. The room had two televisions. The bathroom was also a good size with underfloor heating. Breakfast was served in a very pleasant area and there was a very good choice of hot and cold food. The reception staff were all very helpful. The hotel was in...

My wife and I stayed here for one night. We knew that the rooms facing the street can be noisy because of the Beer House opposite to the hotel. We asked for a room facing the courtyard. Our room was an executive double room #207. It was very spacious. The staff showed us our room when we arrived. To go...

This hotel is very central to The Old town with many excellent restaurants nearby. The decor is modern and well integrated into this interesting old building. My room was very clean and well appointed. The reception staff were extemely helpful. Breakfast could be a little more varied and tasty.

The hotel is just a few steps from the main square and is full of history but nicely updated where it matters. We had room 106, the Courtyard Suite. Plenty big enough with its own sauna. The only negative thing about it was that the wash basin stand needed a little care and affection. Otherwise brilliant. The staff couldn't have...

Very good quality for money, helpful staff, excellent breakfast. There was even a welcome letter addressed to me personally in the room upon arrival, we thought it was a nice touch. Best location in Tallinn, easy.

Firstly, it doesn't look as nice as it is presented in the pictures on booking sites. But it still is ok. Rooms are cream nad the cleaning service was good. Secondly, breakfast is terrible. Just one kind of cheap cheese, one kind of cheap ham etc.The hotel itself deserves 4 stars but I'm giving 3 because of breakfast.

If you only have a couple of days in Tallinn and want a reasonably priced central location from where you can explore everything within (and including) the city walls, look no further. This is the ideal starting point, adjacent to the main square; everything is within a few minutes walk from here (stout footwear required) including nice places to eat....
