The Domina Inn is built within an old factory building. Rooms are modern and clean. Because some of the walls of the hotel are actually in the old factory building, there is little or no noise from traffic outside as well as little or no view. Very nice breakfast buffet. There is free internet in the lobby. Lobby staff is very helpful. Most of the immediate hotel surroundings are residential, but a short walk will take you to a tram station as well as one of the entrances to Old Town.

The hotel is well located outside of the old town (a supermarket is just behind it, incidentally), and the rooms are okay, but this is not a 4-star hotel, though it was relatively inexpensive. Staff was friendly and helpful, but it was obvious they were understaffed for my entire 4 night stay. The rooms are nothing special: bed was at the end of its life, towels and robes and such were cheap. There seem to be no tubs in this hotel, and our shower was so calcified its spray was actually painful. I removed the buildup with a safety pin, which helped, but shouldn't have had to, obviously.

One big warning: the "business class" and "executive" rooms are exactly the same rooms as the regular rooms. Beds the same, bathrooms the same. The executive rooms have LCD tvs and maybe better linens (couldn't tell), but that's about it. Business class gets you access to the minibar and a tea maker (no coffee maker in this hotel, bizarrely). The hotel describes these rooms as much bigger/nicer. They are not. They are the same. Just a warning.

Overall, the hotel was fine, a 3-star hotel, but many corners are cut here (unlike the Domina in Riga, which was better). Reasonably good for the money, but definitely don't bother paying for the upgrades.

Room Tip: Business class & executive are the same rooms as the regular rooms. Don't pay for upgrades...

If you need quiet place to sleep away from old town hustle and bustle yet close to it then this is great choice. Hotel is located in new residential area close to Linda Line terminal (Linnahall) and Old Town wall. Rooms are clean and spacious. Free wi-fi is a plus. Our room towards courtyard was quiet even it was at ground floor. So we got good night sleep even though pillows were too small and uncomfortable. Guests seemed to be all over the Europe which was noticed at small breakfast space which was full of people. Food at breakfast was pretty basic one like whole hotel in general. Nothing fancy but everything tourist needs during short visit.

Room Tip: rooms on the courtyard side are quieter

My boyfirend and I stayed at Domina Ilmarine in February 2012. The room was clean and spacious, and staff were very helpful with reagrds to directions and activities. It is great value for money being only a stones throw from the Old Town and the port, where you can take a ferry to Helsinki (highly recommended in the winter weather, the frozen sea looks stunning). Breakfast had a good selection. The only criticism would be that the spa is 25 euros per person per hour, which I think is rather on the expensive side. We would have considered using the facilities had it not been so overpriced. Other than that, I would definitely recommend this hotel for a trip to Tallinn on a budget.

The hotel was once a marine engineering works now tastefully redeveloped into a hotel in an igeal location. Only a two minute walk away from the gate to the old city, a ten minute walk to the largest shopping zone in Tallinn, an ideal spot.
The hotel is very clean and well cared for. Breakfast is adequate rather than special. Have no concerns about staying here.
From the airport take the two Euro 30z bus to stop 10 which is two hundred matres away from hotel's not too obvious entrance. Journey takes 32 minutes.....reverse the process for return.

Room Tip: Internal rooms are quiet.

This hotel is in a good location for seeing all the sights Tallinn has to offer, located just a short walk from the old town at the Fat Margaret's entrance. It is also a short walk to the ferry terminals and the tram stops nearby for those wanting to travel further afield to Kadriorg Palace for example, and close to a bus stop for travel to the airport.

The rooms are well-appointed though perhaps in need of some refurbishment but was impressed by bathroom and choice of channels on the TV. Some might be uncomfortable with those roads facing the road and tram line - it did not bother me however.

The breakfast on the ground floor was of a good quality and is included in the price, the restaurant has a slightly limited menu for evening meals but there are plenty of places to eat nearby in the old town and it takes only 15 minutes to walk to the more modern area of Tallinn around Freedom Square.

Tallinn is a lovely and picturesque city and I enjoyed staying here and would recommend this hotel as an option for anyone wanting to do the same.

As a group of eight chaps of somewhat mature years we have just come back from a weekend visit to Tallinn. We stayed at the Domina Inn, a former foundry and to be honest a very pleasant hotel indeed. Less than five minutes away from the old city, the hotel was very comfortable and clean. We were provided with two storey suites, the bedroom area upstairs and downstairs a settee and chairs with a TV and if you wanted it, a small compact kitchenette if you wanted to sort yourself out.
Breakfast was more than adequate with hot and cold servings and overall the hotel staff were very good and efficient

Room Tip: Consider asking for the suites as opposed to the rooms
