We spent over a week at this hotel and found it to be very clean, inexpensive and with a great staff. The German restaurant in the hotel is great. The location of the hotel accross an Avenue from the Old City is great. We would go there again.

Room Tip: Get the larger "Luxury" rooms which give you greater value for your money.

Friendly, clean, good value and located right in the centre of Tallinn. Perfect for walking into the old town. Was recommended by a local and proved perfect for a two-night business trip. Its not as expensive as the big hotels but has all the facilities, internet, tourist information, taxi service, nice bar area (which doubles as the breakfast room in the morning) in the cellar and really helpful staff.

The rooms are a decent size and very clean, although with the doors opening outwards into the hallway it seems a bit like you're stepping into a cupboard. TV has a good selection of channels. Good Wifi connection in the room. Was woken once by a bit of street noise from the rear - rubbish collection I think. Not a problem though.

I'll stay there again when I go back.

Room Tip: Early morning rubbish collection on Friday mornings at rear

Stayed in the St Barbara Hotel during the recent EUFA play off.
Hotel in a great location close to all shopping and bars/resaurants. The staff were very friendly good service. The decor was a little dated Very clean ,cosy etc but lacked any
character.
Food was basic very little choice for breakfast. rooms were very clean but dull You would'nt spent too much time in them
Price wise ther was better value to be got in the area, but i would recommend this hotel as a safe bet. All right for 2-3 days

Stayed here for two nights and they where very good. Staff are very friendly and the room was basic but comfy. Only minus i would say is we were put in a room above the delivery doors for the kitchen and the noise from vans pulling up and chefs talking very loadly in the early morning was annoying. But all in all it was a decwent hotel for the price we paid.

Room Tip: away from the kitchens delivery doors.

We liked this hotel. I think the price (60€/night) from Agoda makes it a bargain. It has everything that you need from standard hotel plus we felt that it was cleaned above standard :) Location is nice, very close to old town but still on a very quiet stretch of road. Breakfast was wonderfull and downstears German restaurant also. 5€ for a plate of sausages with sauerkraut and potatos. Not bad at all I say.

One negative thing though, if you are handicapped or have strollers or anything that makes moving difficult the reception is half floor up from the street level, which means 10 stairs that you have to manage without elevator or any help. Most of us it is not a problem but for some it can prevent to use this hotel.

On the whole this hotel is OK (almost very good). It would have been great apart from a couple of niggles. The positives are a great location - 5 min walk to old town square, safe area, clean room, room service every day, polite staff, good bar.

On the downside is that the breakfast is "OK" but German orientated. Im not keen on hot dog sausages and potatoes for breakfast but the scrambled egg was really nice. Plenty of different breads, a few cereals, tea and coffee (though the coffee was so strong I couldnt drink it). Secondly, and this was the main disappointment was that the lift makes a noise that could be heard from our bedroom every time it was used. When I spoke to reception they sympathised and knew it was a problem but we were down the end of the corridor and that was the best it got. Ive never stayed in a hotel where the lift was a problem before. So these 2 points mean 1 less star Im afraid.

If you're a heavy sleeper this probably wont bother you at all though.

Also, as we were leaving a couple turned up and asked reception for a restaurant that was typical Estonian. To our surprise they were directed to Olde Hansa in the town square. This is a bit mock medieval, very touristy and not typical Estonian (& over priced) so we were a bit surprised they sent them there.

Also please note that we paid just over 6 euros for a taxi from the airport. Others we spoke to paid up to 23. Max price should be about 8 euros to this hotel. Agree the price before hand so you dont get ripped off.

This hotel is comfortable, clean and unpretentious. The staff were courteous and helpful. The location is ideal for access to the Old Town and all the major City sights of interest. The restaurant/bar is in the basement and offers hearty reasonably priced food. Watch out as you may get a twin room which is classed as a double! This hotel is ideal if you want to spend most of your time out and about and are not looking for a place to spend relaxing in lounges etc. A comfortable stay for us nonetheless

Room Tip: if you want a double bed reserve this in advance or you may end up in a twin.
