“Nice hotel in old town”
Reviewed 3 April 2012

We stayed here for one night while we explored the Old Town. It was a nice location on the quieter end of old town but close to everything. Bed was very comfy and breakfast was good.

This hotel's big selling point is its location. I thought it was perfect. Lovely building in a quiet and atmospheric part of the Old Town. We had a room at the front of the hotel so St Olaf's Church was just a couple of hundred metres away - a beautiful sight in the snow. It's on the edge of the Old Town, next to the city wall so it's peaceful at night and within strolling distance of a park and a supermarket. (Restaurants are expensive in Tallinn Old Town so this was a big plus).

Other reviewers have complained about the small rooms but it really wasn't a problem - there was quite enough room for my son and I to make our usual amount of mess.

Bathroom was spotless with heated floor times, tons of clean towels and strong hot shower.

Breakfast was a big buffet with a good selection of cereals, fruit, sausages and divinely fresh coffee. The restaurant is Russian but apart from brekkie, I'd give it a miss. The blinis were nice enough but the stroganof lacked flair.

It was excellent value because I got a reduced rate for a stay of 5 nights, possibly because it was winter. Included in the rate was admission to the swimming pool at another Meriton Hotel although we didn't make use of it due to having forgotten swimming cossie/trunks *cough*.

Coffee making facilities are not included in every room and I think this lets the hotel down a bit because it doesn't cost much to provide.

They provide a store room to leave your bags and cases on check out day which saved us a lot of hassle.

Excellent hotel for couples staying!!!
I like especially about the place:
- the quality of service (very hospitable and professional personnel)
- its proximity to all main tourist attractions (just some meters from the Old square and Vyshgorod) - the hotel is indeed in the centre of Old City
- very interesting room decorations

We stayed in this hotel with relatives from Helsinki in December 2011. We booked two Bella Garden rooms, that overlooked the street which we did not mind at all. The rooms were spacious, clean and quaint with their exposed timber beams which gave an old world charm to them. We laughed at the maze of stairs from the reception to our rooms which was on the fifth floor. We did not have much luggage so we did not mind the walking up the stairs at all. We had a wonderful Estonian breakfast in the Estonian Room and tried as many of the dishes as we could eat, the selection was good and we enjoyed the different flavours. We had cake and coffee at the Cafe Mademoiselle and relaxed later in the evening after a day of walking in the old town. We did not eat at the Spanish Tapas Bar and restaurant but the staff were happy for us to have a look around and we were facinated by the bull heads and matador suits on display. The staff were all very friendly and wiling to help, especially when we asked to store our luggage after check out when we were not leaving until the evening ferry back to Helsinki.
My cousin's wife is Estonian and she was impressed by this hotel and said she will stay here again when the travel back to Tallin, which is quite often. We all agreed that the price of the room was very reasonable and I think it would have been one of the cheapest hotels we have stayed in giving us really good value for money. I will definitely stay at this hotel again when inTallin.

Room Tip: Some comments about the budget rooms have said they are really small, so if you want the extra space...

We arrived late at 8 p.m, asked for late checkout and get a no for answer. After arguing they accepted late checkout if we would pay 7€ per person per hour. The (economy)room was liketwo square meter maximum, very little with bunk bed and little toilet. No room for changing clothes or anything else. No chairs or table. The toilet smell awfull and we went to ask for another room as you could not breath because of the smell. We get another room after begging and it was identical. Later we paid for an extra (normal) room with extra space and normal bed. This room was like a normal hotel room should be. There was dust everywhere and it was very dirty, also the wind came in from the door as there was an extra space directly to the street. The staff was very unfriendly. I will never ever go back to this place. Situation was only good thing about the place as it was in the center of old town.
If you reserve this hotel be aware that it´s most like one star hostel not any hotel.
There are several other hotels in Tallinn that are so much better!!

Room Tip: Do not book economy room. Better go to an hostel!

Having travelled to 140 countries around the world and with travel as my business I can say this hotel gave exceptional and friendly service. I had difficulties when getting to Tallinn and the hotel staff went well out of their way to help me in every way possible. The meal that I had there was truly excellent, the room was clean and well appointed. Very highly recommended! Home away from home, in the centre of the old city. I would stay here again anytime without a second thought.

The hotel's location is main advantage of this property - it is located in the centre of beatifull Tallinn's old town. It is also very close to the bus stop from the airport. Breakfast buffet was very good and I can also recommend estonian food in the hotel's restaurant. I must say unfortunately that the double room was too small for comfortable stay of two persons (I've booked 'normal' double room not 'economy' one). It was also a little bit cold in our room during the night.
