Kreutzwald Hotel Tallinn
Ranked #14 of 86 Hotels in Tallinn
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 October 2013

I stayed in the hotel Kreutzwald for 4 nights and it was excellent. At the beginning I booked a standard room but on spot decided to go for the upgrade to the room with jacuzzy.I think they called it ZEN room. The room I got was spacious and had a flat screen TV. The location was about 10 minute walk to the old town, so no complaints about that. The only thing which was a bit negative in the hotel was the elevator, it was rather slow.

Tallinn is worth ex[ploring and I would recommend this hotel stay at when in Tallinn.

I was looking for the hotel close to city center with good value-for-money quality. After numerous checks on the map, I detected that this one has good location, 10-15 minutes walk from the heart of the city. But that was the only thing I liked about this one. The room was quite small, although it was enough for 1 (me) person. TV, bar and a kettle, one chair and a table. Blind curtains were good, though a proper wash is required to remove dust and stains. The windows faced the street so it was quite noisy. Breakfast was medium quality - but what can you expect from this type of a hotel? No fresh juice, poor quality tomatoes and cucumbers. To me everything looks like a renovated and restylished dormitory with canteen downstairs.

Room Tip: ask rooms that are not on the road side

We stayed for 2 nights in September. The hotel recommended Tallink taxis from the airport, but they charged us twice the normal rate - beware.
On arrival reception was friendly and helpful. Our room - 517 - was very disappointing. There was a sloping ceiling which one had to duck under to get to the far side of the bed; the room was stark and very small with no where to sit except the bed, not Zen as advertised; there were wicker blinds at the windows which did not keep out the intrusive street lighting; the bed was hard and uncomfortable; there was no shower, only a hand held shower head on the edge of the bath; there was no ventilation in the bathroom and it smelt. As the room was at the front of the hotel the traffic noise was very loud and the windows did nothing to keep that noise at bay.
We asked for another room the next morning and the receptionist was happy to move us. The second room could have been in a completely different hotel. This room, 414, was everything one would expect: blackout curtains, easy chairs and coffee table, room to move around and put bags, shower over bath and quiet!
Breakfast was good although there was no plain yogurt just the normal fruit flavours with the extra sugar. I overcame the problem by going to the supermarket and buying my own. The waiting staff at breakfast were not very friendly or polite, unlike the reception staff who were delightful.
The hotel was a bit of a trudge to the old town along a very busy main road, but the old town was worth the walk!
TIP ask for a room at the rear of the hotel where it is quieter.

I stayed at Kreutzwald for 3 nights with my girlfriend.

The hotel is located slightly outside of Old Town. It is a 20-minute walk to get to the centre. However, a taxi to the centre is about 6 euros, so we ended up taking one quite often. Not a bad location at all.

Check-in was quick and painless. During our stay we were served by two receptionists who were complete opposites. The other receptionist barely smiled or said anything to us whereas the other one was very polite. They both got the job done but a bit more friendliness from the other receptionist would have made our stay better.

Our room was a standard room on the top floor. Very minimalistic and clean. The bathroom was a bit outdated and we experienced a lot of technical difficulties. The shower is basically cheap and terrible. The TV reception was awful. Our air conditioning was working occasionally. The bed was a bit flimsy. These problems gave the hotel a cheap feel.

The free internet is fast and reliable. We really enjoyed the breakfast! However, the juice machine was malfunctioning one morning and they ran out of sausages for a long while another morning.

The price of the hotel is very reasonable compared to other hotels in Tallinn. It makes up for the location. We liked the cleanliness of the room but the lack of attention to detail made it worse than other hotels we have stayed at. The hotel management really needs to step up and pay attention to the smooth running of the hotel. Employees need more customer service training. The breakfast was maybe understaffed which caused issues in supply. The rooms need some maintenance.

Overall, this hotel could be the perfect place to stay with some attention to detail.

We stayed here 2 nights and our room was large and spacious, large bed , which was a bit soft, and when we did turn our bed on 1 st night there was a very long hair on the sheets. I was disgusted and we stripped our bed and remade it, from the clean sheets on trolley outside our room.
Room has safe, cupboard , desk with computer, flat screen tv on wall, tea & coffee making facilities, mini fridge which has a lock on it, which I found very strange, and we didn't bother to ask for a key.

Bathroom was okay size , shower with shower curtain, which I hate because they always cling to you, heated towel racks, soap & shampoo dispensers only. There wasn't any bench at all in bathroom to put your toiletries on.
Buffet breakfast was very good. Lots of variety.
Hotel was on a main road , when i say main road in this case i mean with a lot of traffic, old town about 15 mins walk, shopping centre about 5 min walk in other direction.
Bus stops practically outside door of hotel, but we didn't use

We happened to be arrive in Tallinn a day early and that day happened to be Estonian Independence Day. Hotels were extremely full and we had a lot of trouble finding a place. We ended up at the Kreutzwald and they said they had one room left and it was a Zen suite for 180 euros (plus 9 more euros to park). I suspect this is an outrageous price, but we were tired of looking so we said yes.

The suite had a living room and a bedroom and a large bathroom. It's nice, but nothing super special. The internet works and there's a PC in the room if you didn't bring one. The bed is comfortable. The jaccuzi bathroom is huge and is nice for 2 people. Breakfast buffet had a good selection. All in all a good stay, though not worth the price we ended up paying.

Had a wonderful weekend at this hotel. Stayed here 3 nights
My only complaint is the traffic right outside. Had a room facing the busy street. But the windows were surprisingly good at lowering the trafficnoise. We heard traffic, but more muffled. Really liked the bed.
We had SPA treatments - excellent!
We also had dinner at the hotel twice and can really recommened the food. The breakfast is also excellent - one of the best hotels I have ever had breakfast in.
