Barons Boutique Hotel
Ranked #30 of 86 Hotels in Tallinn
Reviewed 15 December 2011

Barons is perfectly located for the Old Town,unique atmosphere and very friendly and helpful staff.
The rooms are far too small as are the beds but you can upgrade to a suite for 40 euros a night.
The breakfast and evening meal are basic but home cooked and good quality.Some fresh fruit at breakfast and a little better presentation would make both meals more appealing.The staff are very helpful and really try to make you comfortable.
BUT I could never recommend Baron's to anyone as the noise from the two bars opposite means you will never have a good night's sleep.It was mid week in December when I stayed and each night the noise continued 'til six sometimes seven in the morning, how the local authorities allow such places in the beautiful old town is beyond me.

Hotel staff was excellent and hotel was unique and historic. Our double room was very nice and beautiful. Beds were too soft, like bad waterbeds. Food was good, not too many options thou. Location was excellent.

But then... there were HORRIBLE noise of music and drunken people! It was a shame! No sleeping well at all!!! There were earplugs offered by the hotel and a little bit wondering it after arriving. You really should not need those if hotel would be calm. It is a pity because otherwise it would of be a very nice experience.

The central location in the Old Town makes this hotel a good choice for a stay in Tallinn. The Hotel itself is an historic gem and the staff helpful in every way.

The (inexpensive) airport transfer that I had arranged with the Hotel several weeks earlier went smoothly and the staff arranged a taxi to takes us to the bus station on our departure.

The complimentary afternoon tea is a nice touch, in our case coffee and muffins, as is the complimentary dinner buffet. Be warned, though, that the dinner choices are limited and that better is available outside the Hotel. We had the dinner on our arrival day only. On the other hand the breakfast buffet is excellent, with sufficient choice to suit all tastes.

I had concerns about noise, given the comments of other reviewers. And yes, noise from nearby bars and early morning street cleaning was a problem, but not to the extent that we couldn't sleep or had to use the ear plugs provided. However our stay was outside peak season (late Sep) and did not include a weekend. It might be a different story at these peak times. Specify an inside room if this is a major concern.

I have just returned from Tallinn after a Monday to Wednesday stay at the hotel and can heartily recommend it. The staff was excellent and unfailingly courteous and helpful throughout the stay. The inclusive breakfast, buffet supper and coffee and cake in the afternoon were very welcome and I found the selection and quality of the food to be above the average listed in some of the reviews below. I stayed in the Barons suite which was tastefully decorated in a style reminiscent of the 1930s, green acanthus leaf wallpaper, black and white tiled bathroom (with an adjoining sauna room) and brown leather seating, the view of medieval town hall tower from the windows of my room were, pardon the cliché, fairy tale. Personally I had no problem falling and remaining asleep, although my companion did complain of a disturbance outside the hotel on Tuesday night, unfortunately featuring some of our compatriots.

Seven of us came to Tallinn to celebrate an 80th birthday. Through a shipingline we tried to
chose a suitable hotel in the Old Town. We couldn't have chosen a better one to suite
our needs. Very friendly service and as an extra bonus the complementary dinner buffet and
afternoon caffee/tea. It contributed to make our celebration a success.

Barons Hotel Tallinn was a return to working in an historical building in Liverpool. Old bank full of atmosphere and HUGE original safe for security boxes. A return to the past.
Rooms can be noisy on the front due to the new Australian bar that has made the area a bit of a 'hang out' for students.
Great welcome and service. Free inclusive security box, afternoon tea, and basic evening meal. Breakfast buffet very inclusive. Could have done with the cheese available in the evening as well.
Room was on the inside, so no rooftop views of old town, but quiet and convenient. A little dull and noise from thundering rain on flat roof.....not the hotel's fault.
Thoughtfully left complimentary 'bubbly' for our Ruby wedding anniversary.
Lovely staff on reception and full of ideas on bars and local information....found some hidden historic gems. Got off at the right bus stops etc.
Shower instantly worked and everywhere clean. Plenty of towels and changed if required.
Get the table by the left window for breakfast and dinner view into the old streets with rooftops and towers...out of a picture book.
Commercial hotel and Finnish tourists on weekend.
We were there for a week and it added to our love of Tallinn. Thank you Barons Hotel.
Arrived by bus from airport. Get off by Viru centre and go straight through the shopping centre and out the far door. Head to the old gate towers, keep ahead and turn left at the top of the road...Barons ahead. You will find a shorter way on return. Very convenient for everything.
If you are 60+ then all city transport is free. Pick up info on the terminals of trams and trolly cars because routes not on bus stops just final destinations.
Go to the coast at Pirita, get off after bridge. Lovely walk along beach. Walk back into city visiting imposing German/Russian cemetary and the MASSIVE Song Bowl on the way back. Take tram to Open Air Museum, get off at Zoo and walk along coast. Stunning setting.
Opera and ballet so memorable and inexpensive.
Fantastic Anniversary trip. Highly recommend.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet inside room or could get street noise.

The staff in this hotel were excellent! They couldn't do enough for us. We were there for 4 nights and went over to Helsinki for 4 nights. When we came back they upgraded us to a junior suite without even being asked.

The hotel includes dinner and afternoon tea/coffee in the price so this is excellent value. Dinner is good quality but limited in choice.

The location in the old town couldn't be better. Although there is noise from the bar opposite this only really effects one side of the hotel and we were lucky.

We would definitely stay here again.
