“Good hotel, well priced”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

We had a very nice stay here for 4 nights at a very reasonable rate. Well-designed [converted from an old factory building quite skillfully] and comfortable hotel a short walk from the old city centre. Helpful staff.

Room Tip: We asked for a room on a higher floor and on the side away from the road.

We decided to stay 1st time in PK Ilmarien hotel. Hotel a few parking spaces outside and it was easy to access from harbour.
Our booking was made by agency , and seems all our requirements were not informed. however, the experienced receptionist was very nice and helpful, trying to fix the issues and explaining to his younger, local colleagues, how it's important to fulfill customers all wishes :)

hotel was warm and cosy, built in to old building. Rooms were pretty standard ones.

Hotel reastaurant had very nicely priced food available and breakfast was tasty, even bit limited in offering.

Room Tip: if you use agent, it's recommended to contact directly to hotel and make sure all your wishes ar...

After being tens and tens times in Tallinn (city centre and old city), this hotel gave us new perspective for the city. Especially the "Kalasadama" just block away had two very nice restaurants. The hotel itself was clean, modern and cozy. The staff was kind and breakfast pretty ok.

I was so very dissapointed in this penny pinching, noisy and badly serviced hotel.
It started off ok as when I checked in and they gave me room on the side of the hotel on the very, very noisy main road, when I asked for another room they managed to find me one on the other side.
Unfortunately, there was some problem with noise in this room also. A low vibrating sound that actually came through the walls. I can only assume it was the air conditioning intermittently coming on and off.
They said they would find me another room and left a note for day staff which was duly ignored as when I returned back to the hotel at gone midnight the next day after a very long day trip to Helsinki they had done nothing and didn't seem to care.
My third room in the hotel was quiter but did not have internet access.
All three rooms had terrible air conditioning and the level of hygiene was terrible. I came back one day to find a cotton bud in the middle of the floor. The room was not hoovered for 2 days. The carpet was worn and sticky in patches and there was mould and hair in the shower.
Really terrible.
But the really, really bad thing is that they just didn't care. When I checked out they didn't ask if I had a nice stay. They did ask if the internet ever worked in the room and when I said no they just shrugged.
Awful hotel.

From reception, via the clean rooms with very comfortable beds to the dinning room. And, this is where we were disappointed - the dining room was like the rooms clean and tidy, the food was excellent, but getting to the food was very difficult when a large umber of guests were trying to get breakfast. it was sited at the furthest end of the dining room away from the kitchen. They ran out of food, plates dishes, cutlery on more than one occasion. Would we go again - YES. It has location, location, location!

Room Tip: We traveled with eight couples, scattered around the hotel, and we all had good rooms

Just returned from a three night stay with my daughter. Very nice hotel, very clean, nice room. I did upgrade to a business room because it was my daughter's birthday, not sure, to be honest, if it was strictly necessary - the extras seemed to be flat screen tv (very few English channels), tea and coffee facilities which we did use and free mini bar which had a couple of soft drinks and water in it. They are on the courtyard side of the hotel which was very quiet, the other side being on a fairly busy road. Beds comfortable, nice crisp bedding and clean modern bathroom. My only slight disappointment was that I had informed them at the time of booking and on further occasion that it was my daughter's birthday - I had thought there might be some sort of gesture - even a card or something - this in no way spoilt our stay.

The hotel location is just perfect for the old town as it is only five minutes from one of the town entrances. I would not actually recommend anyone to book a hotel in the town, I think it could be very noisy in the evenings (several stag parties on our flight) and stay away from eating and drinking in the square - we only once stopped there and paid e7.50 for two glasses of tepid, flat coke - didn't even see the bottle it came in !).

I would recommend the Weigand restaurant for dinner at the hotel - we thought prices very reasonable for the standard of food but that may be because we live in London ?

All in all I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a good value base for a stay in Tallinn

Room Tip: Rooms on courtyard side are quiet - might have to be the Business or Executive Room ?

Stayed three nights at this hotel recently. Arrived earlier than the 2pm check in so left our cases in the left luggage room and went off for a stroll around the harbour. Found a lovely cafe and had a drink and snack before heading off back at 2pm to check in. The receptionist wasn't too friendly but the porter was lovely and chatted and offered advice on where to go. Our room was on the first floor just round the corner from the lift but we didn't hear any noise.
Very deep, large bath with shower, toilet, washbasin and bidet. Hairdryer tube was broken which we reported but was not mended by the time we left. TV had quite a lot of channels including some English. Our room was over the corridor and when we opened the large window could be a bit noisy with people wheeling cases but we had the a/c on and kept the window shut. Room was bit stuffy and I should imagine in the height of summer quite hot. Two small twin beds which were quite comfy and the bedding all clean.
Breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice and always being refilled. There must have been something for all tastes.
The hotel was very convenient for entry into the old town, Fat Margaret tower, just across the road from tram stops and a short walk to the train station. There was a large supermarket about five minutes walk towards the train station. The new town was a short walk away too.
If I visited Tallinn again I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. The area is upcoming with nice housing/apartments, bars and restaurants nearby.
We paid £154 for three nights stay and our flight, so a bargain.
The weather was brilliant when we were there and three days was adequate to visit the sights and walk around and explore the lower and upper town. We also visited the palace and gardens at Kadriog, getting a tram there and back.
Found out when we got home that Prince Harry was in town at the same time, but we missed him, unfortunately.
We mainly ate around the Town Hall Square area and experienced some local delicacies. Lovely to be able to walk around at midnight and it was not completely dark and we always felt safe. Went on the little train ride around the lower town which was a bit of fun but very bumpy, good for a laugh though. Whilst we were there it was museum night, all the museums and churches were open until late and with free entry, they were all very busy even at 11.30pm, it was quite bizarre!
Recommend a visit as a city break.
