Deluxe room and its bathroom were spacious, beautiful and well-functioning. Aircon system was perfect: temperature changed according to our wishes, system was silent and there was no uncomfortable draught. Location in the old town area is great, there are numerous nice restaurants and cafes within walking distance. Hotel breakfast seemed to be challenging for waiters when restaurant was almost full:...

This is a very good hotel in the center of Tartu just opposite the University and few steps from the Town Hall. Hotel is small and cozy with antique furniture and every room is different (I have stayed there several times). The staff is very friendly and try to meet your wishes. Breakfast is one of the best I have...

Hotel Antonius is perfect in all the possible ways. It's almost like living in a fairy tale. Staff is friendly and professional. Location is perfect (free parking on weekends and evenings, there is a fee for parking on the streets Mo-Fr 8-18). You can walk from there to most important sights. Different restaurants are nearby. Room and bathroom were clean...

The hotel is situated in a historical building, which is nicely renovated without taking away its wonderful charm. It is in quiet street just opposite the Tartu university, yet the center with many nice bars and restaurants is only a few blocks away. Service is very discreet, yet friendly and effective. It's not a busy hotel, it was very quiet...

I loved staying there! The rooms are wonderful and extremely clean, the old fashion style makes a warm and cozy atmosphere and the breakfast was perfect to me. I had dinner in the restaurant and I was fully satisfied. The location is the best you can have, so I strongly recommend this hotel.

This is a traditional hotel setting out a modern face onto the world. I dislike all these US-style reviews which struggle to understand how traditional townhouses have morphed into hotels rather than being built from scratch. We stayed here as a party of Brits, Aussies and Dutch couples whilst touring around southern Estonia with Estonian friends who had studies here....

Immediately opposite the university’s historic main building. Ambience and décor are a great match for its location. Our bathroom was especially unique with original marble floors in excellent condition and a great view of the floodlight historic building across the street. Supposedly hosts Tartu’s best restaurant but the frilly décor and basement location was not to our taste so we...

Our first impression was not great: the front desk was, well, a desk manned by a single bored looking student. The room was clean and spacious but *very* plain. But the place had a certain authentic charm; the breakfast room was gorgeous, and the other public spaces were equally elegant. Breakfast was excellent, even had champagne. And you can't beat...

Excellent location, everything at short walking distance (do not miss the botanical gardens! I am not a "garden person" but really enjoyed a walk there). Very polite and friendly personal (somewhat shy to start with), everything worked perfectly in the room, really good breakfast, good housewine. Can warmly recommend and will go again next year.

I agree with most of the positive and praising comments about this hotel, handily located in the middle of Old Tarnu right by the University and within easy walking distance of the main square and all its attendant sights and restaurants. Very welcoming staff, huge room and walk-in wardroom with bathroom to swim in. Only slight disappointments were no tea-making...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Antonius is a charming and luxurious boutique hotel in the centre of Tartu, directly opposite the university. This brand new hotel offers 16 romantic suites and rooms on 4 floors. The decoration and design of each room was carefully chosen and thought out, combining special colour and wallpaper patterns, wall paintings, fireplaces, stoves, and antique furniture. Some rooms have amazing views of nearby Tartu University, while others face the old town’s red roofs. The Antonius Hotel is located in a building with a long and dignified history, being first mentioned in the historical records of the 16th century. During the subsequent centuries the building was home to a hat shop, the Livonian Noblemen’s Manor House Credit Association, and the famous Guild of Saint Antonius. ... more   less
