Great spot. Big place, big breakfast! Such helpful people who work there, helped us locate everything we wanted to do and made great suggestions. Nice room and bath. Very nice place to stay. big thumbs up. Very near the ferry and new the old town. Great location without burning up your credit card.

if you are traveling by ferry (as i did) to tallinn, this is perfect for you. it is a 10 minute walk to the hotel and it is situated right across the old town. the room and the service was superb. it was a nice surprise considering what i paid for. the staff was amazing and helpful, had free internet in the room and a computer in the lobby. the tram is also across the street that brings you to other areas like the kadriorg palace (20 mins) and the central bus station (15 mins). one of the best hotels i stayed in budget or not.

Have just spent 4 days at the hotel between Christmas and the New Year and had a great time. The hotel, which is interesting, in that it has a history, is across the road from the entrance to the old town via Fat Margaret (gate). We had one of the superior rooms which ticked all the boxes with us. The `living area/kitchenette' meant you could read or watch the tv without having to crash on the bed. The hotel provided cups and a kettle when asked. The reception staff were extremely helpful and knowledgeable. The breakfast was not inspired but you can't have everything! Would definitely go back there again.

  • Liked — Warmth, comfort and location (very cold in December!)
  • Disliked — The tinned fruit salad at breakfast

First of all remember that Tallinn has 2 Domina Inns. One is central and this one Illmarine is just outside the old town. As an earlier reviewer mentioned the location is not a problem - just a short walk across to the old town entrance. The hotel is fine - good choice at breakfast,everywhere clean,helpful reception - we dined in one evening and although lacking somewhat in atmosphere the food and wine were more than ok. It's definately worth booking into a superior room(suite) for the little extra they charge. In the old town, we thought the Hell Hunt bar was excellent - frequented by locals - always a good sign. We had a good meal in the tiny restaurant 2 doors away 'Wirulane'. Also enjoyed an Italian evening at Spahetteria Buongiorno in Muurivahe St. in the old town. If you want a different lunchtime experience try the wine bar below the Gloria hotel - exceptional ! We stayed for 3 nights - maybe 2 would have been enough.

  • Liked — Size of the superior accommodation
  • Disliked — Lack of general atmosphere

Just back from a trip to Baltics. We stayed 3 nights at Domina Ilmarine and couldn't find any major faults (although there always are some small problems, which were solved and couldn't ruin our holiday).

First of all, book Superior rooms (which are actually two-level suites overlooking the seaside or - if you're not that lucky - the neighbouring buildings, which are very nice, almost Amsterdam-style). They're absolutely worth the price, First level is a living room with a small kitchenette, two tables, a sofa, few chairs and a TV. There's also a (guest?) WC which is same as the main one (on 2nd level). Upstairs (watch your step! and book standard room if you're...emm....not that young) is the bedroom and bathroom, Bathrobes included! ;)

Do not be afraid of location, as some say it's not good, No problems at all! Exit the hotel, turn left, cross the street - you'll surely see the towers of Old City ahead of you. Just cross the street, as I've just said, and you'll the see one of the Old City's gates. It's 300 meters away from the Domina Ilmarine, If you won't cross the street and continue to go straight ahead, you'll see the so-called "Linnahalle" (old and ugly soviet-era concert hall - a mixture of concrete and some strange Yukatan-style pyramides) on your left and - after it - the seaport. Take any tram heading left, and you'll reach the main Old City entrance with the giant Sokos Hotel Viru and adjoining shopping Viru center.

Breakfast was adequate, although fresh juices would be a good addition. Try their pastry, it's very nice (rhye bread reminded me of Scottish breakfasts).

Staff was polite and helpful, except one young man. They speak English and Russian.

(Check out the lobby decoration - a bright orange walls, pictures, high ceilings - this is exactly what I wanted my own house to look like :)).

  • Liked — room, heated floor in bathroom, free Internet in lobby
  • Disliked — staff member, who pretended he didn't understand Russian, but we didn't understand his English

I stayed here for a few days last year and enjoyed it very much. Everything was clean and stylish. The breakfast could however been a bit better/bigger, but its still good. Frontdesk service was good and the staff were friendly.
The only bad thing about this hotel is the location, its however not a disaster, and taxis are cheap. Its about a 5-10minute walk away from Old Town, it is however the end of Old Town where nothing happens...

  • Liked — The staff were great
  • Disliked — A not-so-great location (but still no disaster.)

We stayed at the Domina for two days in early August. Arriving by ferry from Helsinki, it’s a bit of a hike if you walk depending on the traffic and the stuff you have with you (we had an older person and a toddler). When we returned to the ferry to leave, we took a cab (it also was raining and we needed to go to the farthest terminal). Near the north entrance of old town, and also quite close to the sea, the hotel is nice and quiet. The staff were polite and spoke excellent English. The beds are comfortable, and the other furniture in the room (desk and chairs) are serviceable, though worn and simple. The TV is small and there are few channels. If you can get close to your window, you might catch a random WiFi signal. Otherwise, you’ll need to head to the lobby. There is a small difference in price between the cheapest room and the next step up. I highly recommend you spend the extra $20 or so and upgrade. Half of our group stayed in truly a closet sized room that didn’t have a desk, coffee maker or tub, and very little space even for luggage. Our room had two chairs, the desk, a coffee maker, and a tub (it was not the split level room--make sure you specify if you want that). We also had a toddler, so we could unfold one of the chairs into a bed (a crib would have been preferred, but if your child is big enough, you can make do). The extra space is nice and worth it. The breakfast is good—lots of Finnish influence (pasties, sausages, rye bread), and good pastries, cereals, deli meats and cheeses. The scrambled eggs, as they are in most European hotels, are bizarre. If you’re in Tallinn for the old town, it’s a great choice. This is a simple, no frills hotel that’s clean and functional. If you’re more interested in the modern part of town—it’s pretty far and there are other choices that can work for you. It’s also not the place to stay if you typically enjoy more of a luxury hotel—if you’re looking for that, you’ll just need to spend more.
