“A good hotel close to Fat Margaret”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2013

Small but clean and comfortable room with nice en-suite.(basic option) Fast WiFi, TV was old with faulty screen but we weren't in Tallinn to watch little house on the prairie in Estonian... Extra pillows provided when asked.

Breakfast was a plentiful buffet in the morning with hot and cold options, much better than at many hotels we have stayed in. If you time it wrong in the morning it can be a little busy but they seemed to be constantly refreshing the buffet and the dining room is big enough to cope.

Reception staff were helpful when needed. on a couple of occasions our key card wouldn't swipe but they re-issued ones quickly.

5-10 mins walk to Fat Margaret Tower and entrance to Tallinn old town but far enough away to be quiet. Large supermarket with ATM close by and tram stop opposite.

I would stay here again if I was revisiting Tallinn with the same budget.

We booked this hotel off the back of the reviews on Tripadvisor & were disappointed, creaking bed, faulty electrics, the majority of the staff were cold & unhelpful, inability to refresh basic staples like bread for breakfast or to provide hot water for tea. We complained about lighting in bathroom & it was resolved for half a day, given this we did not bother to complain again. Would recommend to get down for breakfast early in hope that you might have a range of food to choose from. We have travelled widely in Europe & would rate this as one of the worst hotels we stayed in.

Room Tip: Don't bother with hotel

I got a present card for this hotel. The location is very good. Ilmarine hotel is in a walking distance from the harbour and from Tallinn old town. There is no pool in the hotel but it takes 10-15 minutes to walk to Kalev Spa where you can swim. The staff is really friendly and helpful. Our room was not too big but it was perfectly clean and we had a bottle of champagne for free in the room when we arrived. The best thing about this hotel was the breakfast. It was served in a cosy dining room with nice chairs and a peaceful atmosphere.

Room Tip: It´s a good choise especially for a short stay in Tallinn.

Booked via Trivago. Price for standard room was abt. 20 euros cheaper than with other agents. But it seems that we got a lower level of room because of that. At check-inn we were told that standard rooms were fully booked, but we shall get a better suite. Well, that suite was off-date, furniture worn, it seemed that the room has not been in use for a while, air-conditioning and refrigerator taken off, a quick cleaning just before we came. Strange thing with keys, got ones that did not work at all. After all stayed only one night, so we agreed to stay in that room.
The reception staff was otherwise very friendly. Location very good. Breakfast ok.

Room Tip: Check first if you go to suite.

Clean, efficiently run, helpful staff. The hotel does not have an indoor pool despite professing to have. Makes truly basic errors like booking out its dining room without telling hotel guests until they start turning up and find that the dining room is closed for the evening and the kitchens are also closed. Breakfast.... Continental part, cheese and ham with bread ok. Cooked part as if someone had been told about the idea of cooked breakfast.... but cooked vegetables, boiled frankfurters and small roast style chipped potatoes not chiming with my idea. Basic rooms have no coffee and tea making facilities.

We stayed for two nights in July, and upgraded to business rooms but ended up with one business and one executive room with extra sofa-bed with no extra charge. Prices were very reasonable for a party of five (2 adults and 3 kids) and included some items from minibar as well.

Rooms and particularly the service were outstanding! Rooms were clean and comfortable. Location is really great, it is far enough from crowded areas for silent nights but still only few hundred meters away from Old Town. Public transit is easy and stops are close by.

We had our own car and got free parking, connections and traffic is good from the hotel so it was easy and fast to head to Zoo or to any of the near by shopping malls. Next time we probably have to stay 3-4 nights to see it all....

We definitely will be coming again :)

Room Tip: I recommend business/executive rooms, more quiet etc..

We stayed 1 night at PK Ilmarine. The location was good, and we definitely saved money by staying outside of Old Town. I may have been more annoyed with the conditions of the room and bathroom if we stayed here for a longer period of time. We had our 2 year old with us, and it was a bonus that there was a playground across the parking lot from the hotel. The dinner at the hotel was quite good, but the breakfast was inedible. The front desk was always polite and helpful. The executive room was small. I'm not sure if it is in all of Tallinn or just this hotel, but the water in the toilet, sink and shower had an odor.

Room Tip: We had an executive room which was small and cramped especially with the crib. The television didn...
