Hotel is in good state, refurbished and all nice and clean. Offers free parking space but it is a bit tricky to get there, you have to park your car in europark place using 1 hour free ticket, then go to hotel and get a special ticket and follow instruction given to you. Room was clean, warm and everything worked... More

2 nights in room 625. Top floor, quiet and overlooking river. Good bed and pillow. No tea/coffee or iron in room, although they probably have one to borrow. Decent breakfast but nothing out of the ordinary. Located close to the bus station and easy walking distance to the centre. Would not hesitate to stay again.

Good location. Limited parking at hotel, so arrive early if driving. Typical chain type hotel. Rooms clean and adequate. Can't fault but has no atmosphere. Easy walk to the old part of town, either along the river or through the streets. Old part of town is compact so easy to walk around

If you visit Tartu (deffinitly worth a visit) this hotel should be considered. It is close to the Center and there is friendly staff caring about all your needs. On the breakfast there is even a little bit too much staff caring about every need. The place made me feel welcome and breakfast was quite rich and would even be... More

Nice hotel by the river. Close to the city centre and a stone' throw to shopping malland local market. Had a double rom which was quite okay. Missed a mini-bar inthe room to cool my drinks in. Staff in the reception spoke good english. Nice variety of food for breakfast.

Since Hotel spa has gift cards I have returned there even after bad experience and even though there have been pleasant visits statistically impossible to recommend it. Two times out of 5 you can actually get the service you booked. With rare exceptions quality of service is rather poor.

Compared to Hotels in Tallin, My experience was not so good in Hotel Dorpat in Tartu. Price service is not good. Breakfast is simple. Internet connection is very poor. No refrigerator in the room to cool soft drinks. You can buy water which is put on the office desk but not cooled. Pricing of the restaurant dishes are rather expensive... More

Dorpat is situated very near the Old City of Tartu, walking just about 8-10 min from there. Hotel was clean and the reception was friendly. Rooms relatively big for two persons too. Breakfast was not fancy but good enough to start the days touring.
