“Fabulous find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2011

We stayed in the apt w sauna. It was clean, tastefully decorated, spacious (2 adults, 2 kids) and came with a fully equipped kitchen! I liked it so much we extended our stay. The very helpful staff arranged our ferry rescheduling. There are apts facing the street (noisier) and apts facing an inner courtyard. You cannot beat the location in Old Town. And it feels very safe. The only downside is you access the apts via a narrow, old, wooden spiral staircase so it will be difficult with small children or the disabled.

Very nice rooms in a great location. A few minor complaints concerning lack of equipment in the kitchen (you have to boil your breakfast egg in a massive spaghetti pan and eat it out of the vodka glass) and the loudest central heating I've ever heard which unfortunately broke for two nights during winter. The contract states that the hotel is not responsible for the heating and water supply if the problem is caused by the heating or water supplier which seems extremely bizarre but may explain why we didn't receive the slightest apology and made to feel like they were doing us a favour by trying to get it fixed (which they didn't anyway).

Most of all, the 'house rules' certainly don't make you feel welcome. Luckily we didn't break any of them, but among them are: 200 euros 'compensation' for the use of neighbours' doorbells to enter, 500 euros for holding a party in the apartment, 100 euros for smoking, 200 euros for bringing a pet without informing first, 200 euros for loss of keys(!!!). There was also a sign on the door warning us that use of furniture on the roof terrace without plastic coverings would attract a 300 euro fee! Some of these are reasonable, but the 'compensation' you are forced to agree to upon taking the apartment is completely disproportionate and would prevent me from staying here again.

The two bedroom apartment we were in was very open plan with no door between the upstairs sleeping area and the downstairs sleeping/kitchen area. This is fine for family but if you are two couples you may want to double check that the rooms are separate.

Good value modern accommodation in the heart of the old town, just be careful how you treat the sun loungers!

Family apartment RaKa 4, Rataskaevu 16.

The service in reception was excellent and polite. Apartment RaKa 4 was very, very spacious with large living room incl. kitchen corner, two sofas, dining table for 6, fireplace, two nice bedrooms and very clean lavatory with sauna and washing machine. Kitchen was fully equipped excl. microwave.
Location was superb, ~200 m from Town Hall.

Liked best: Apartment, location, service.
Liked least: One threshold in front of lavatory. :)

We stayed in Rüütli apartment and it was just beautiful. The rooms are very nicely decorated and the apartment is well equipped. The location near Niguliste church, on the top floor is great.

We stayed in Vene N apartment and it was truly wonderful, charming, and excellently located! I really felt at home here and I must say that I was thrilled to see that the apartment was designed to suit all needs, by especially paying attention to details. :)
