Reviewed 15 August 2014

We arrived after the temperatures had dropped in Tallinn, so did not have the issues others did with the lack of air conditioning. We had room 414 and had two windows with lovely views. The only issue I had with this room was that our Internet kept dropping out. The room was near the hotel office and it kept trying to get me to log into that wifi!

I loved the history of this hotel and the breakfasts in the lower rooms were fantastic. It was also very well located to the Old Town - outside the main section, but with a tunnel under the street that took you directly to Freedom Square. We found it quiet and clean and I certainly would recommend it.

Room Tip: If you need good wifi reception, do not accept room 414, Apart from that glitch, it was a lovely ro...

The location of this hotel is good, through a tunnel under a busy street and you are at the Freedom Square and the edge of the Old Town. The hotel itself is in an old grey building and the inside is just as drab. To get to the reception desk you need to navigate your luggage up about 10 or so steps which is can be tricky. The ladies at the front desk were efficient and friendly. I was on the 4th floor, and thank goodness there is an elevator. The carpets in the hallway and in the room are a dark colour and one of the walls was also painted a dark colour. It would have been so nice to have the place lightened a little. The room was basic, but that is to be expected in a 3 star hotel. The bathroom was nice and clean with a modern shower.

The breakfast is in the basement dining room. The food selection was better than in another 3 star in Tallinn that I stayed in. The funny part is the "overly speedy" service - - - I put my plate down at a table and went to get a cup of coffee - when I returned there was a couple sitting at my table and my plate of food had disappeared. It was not because of lack of seating. There were two young Russian speaking waiters who were cleaning plates off the table the minute you put your fork down. Of well, perhaps they had been told to hurry people along!

Room Tip: There is no A/C Make sure your room as a fan.

This was a great hotel.
The location couldn't have been better. Go under the underpass at the end of the street and you find yourself in Freedom Square, the edge of the historic old town,
Our room was a good size and very clean but it was really warm and no real air conditioning to speak of.
The breakfast was fantastic, it set you up for the day , we generally didn't need to eat again until the evening.
We liked the history of the building as well, it added another element to our stay.The restaurant is full of character
The staff were all very efficient, the only thing I would mention is if, like us, you are used to happy smiley staff when you travel you won't get that here. I don't think they mean to be rude and I don't think it is this hotel. I think this part of the world they are just like that so don't be put off, it's nothing personal

The hotel is conveniently located…across the street form old town. You can pretty much walk to anything in old town or the city center. There is free parking if you do have a car. The rooms themselves were very comfortable and clean , but really just rates “average” and. The breakfast was “average” as well. The staff was friendly and helpful. I can’t say anything bad about the place.

Room Tip: Choose a room in the back - very quiet

Good location, good friendly service, good food and beer. Only needs a little more work to reduce the noise in the corrodors.
About the first hotel we have been in where they actually do not change all the towels if you request them not to, by re-hanging them. Impressed by that.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back will have less traffic noise.
