“Long weekend for couple”
Reviewed 19 December 2012

My girlfriend bought a long weekend for the two of us in Tallinn and this was the hotel we stayed at. The hotel is located in the old city and has a very good location when it comes to shops and dining facilities. (Beware of taxi drivers taking a longer route than necessery; airport->hotel).
The hotel is clean and the breakfast is of the continental kind, simple and tasty. There is also a bar connected to the hotel. We had no trouble with noise from the bar.
The in-house massage is worth a try! It's cheap, compared to other massage-parlors in the town, and the sauna\jacuzzi is a nice offer for couples wanting a more private atmosphere.
We did not try the in-house restaurant due to a wider offer of restaurants just outside the hotel in the old town. The staff was very helpful, and this hotel is worth a visit!

Room Tip: Go for the room facing the back\parking lot!

This is a 4* hotel and I saw a review complaining that you had to get your own cutlery at breakfast. I think its all about expectations and what 4* is like in your home country, so I would say expect a 3*+ to avoid disappointment.

For me the important things are location, cleanliness, comfort, service and value for money. On that basis I was happy with my choice.

Location - couldn't ask for better. You can get the bus from the airport (90K or 2) for a few € and be dropped off within 5 minutes walk from the hotel. Both drop off near the Viru Keskus shopping centre - from the front of the shopping centre cross the main road towards Viru Gates, walk through the gates and the Viru pub (linked to the hotel) is just up the road on your right - you can get to the reception by walking through the pub (there is a main entrance to the hotel from an earlier side street if the pub is closed).
http://www.tallinn-airport.ee/eng/transport/publictransport gives you the times and drop off points. Getting back to the airport don't take the number 90k from the same place or you will sit on the bus for ages - take the number 2 or take 90k from Estonian academy of arts (stop 15). Bus will take about 15 minutes from there. The 90k is now €3 from 1st December 2012.

As well as being easy to locate on arrival, the hotel is very close to the Town Hall main square and anything else you want to see in the old town - its quite a small area so easy walking distance

Rooms - I had a single room so quite small as expected but spacious enough with hanging space for clothes. There was no safe in my room, so I assume that was with reception. There was also no tea/coffee making facilities in my room which was disappointing - maybe they are in the more expensive rooms. Shower was powerful and hot, rooms were clean and comfortable with adjustable radiator. Curtains didn't block out the street lighting from outside but I had an eye mask anyway. The "free toiletries" is a dispenser of hair/body wash in the shower and liquid hand soap by the sink - just in case you were wondering if you needed to take your own!

Service - staff were friendly and one kindly tried to help when I realised I forgot my adaptor. At 10:30pm he was searching their box of left behind adapters for me. They didn't have what I needed but he told me where I could buy one. (At time of writing they do not have adapters for UK plugs, but if you do forget yours you can buy one at the Euronics store in the Viru Keskus mall across the main road!)

Breakfast - plenty to choose from the self service buffet, even if it may not be what you are used to at home! Cooked breakfast options included meatballs, egg, bacon, beans, roast potatoes and mixed vegetables (cauliflower, broccoli etc!). There are pastries, bread, fruit, cereal, juice and tea & coffee

The Pub - nice pub and you can still access the free wifi in there. You get a 20% and a 10% food and drink discount voucher if staying at the hotel. I had the Solyanka soup which I recommend - very tasty - unless you are particular about what meat you eat or don't eat cheese as I think it had a variety of both in there! It cost me about €6.50 for the soup and a coke with my 20% discount, so quite pricey though

All in all a good stay - its not luxury but if you are having a short stay and want somewhere nice to sleep in an ideal location then I would recommend this hotel.

If you are looking for a budget hotel for a short stay in Tallinn, this might be a good choice. The location is excellent and rooms are clean and quiet. The breakfast offers a wide selection of options, but somehow it feels a little bit poor - even though you can find everything you need to start your day. The rooms towards the front of the hotel are probably more quiet than those towards Viru street.

The staff is very friendly. The hotel has an "own" taxi which is not the cheapest in the city, because it is a big van, but it can be reached very fast if needed. The less expensive alternative you can find from the beginning of Viru street. But be careful - the Tallink (yellow) or Takso (white) taxis are reasonably priced, the rest will cheat you more or less

This is probably not the best choice for business purposes. This hotel can be recommended for tourists that stay a night or two and who want to have a budget accommodation.

I was there in September 2011. Hotel is very well located near Olt Town Center with a delicious breakfast. Rooms are a little bit tiny. I was surprised to see expensive food, expensive hotels there, hearing that Estonia are a former communist country. But they past well these times and very well positioned besides other similar countries. Note that you will pay 30-40 euro per two persons meal. You may visit town in 2-3 days, but it worth to go there if you are visiting entire area: Tallinn, Riga, Sk. Petersburg and Helsinki. I fly with Finnair and it was very good.

Nice hotel with perfect location. Short distance to everything. Some noise from the streets at night. We had rooms on the second floor in the back of the hotel. Breakfast was OK. Tallinn was OK. A little disappointed about the shopping, but the meals and drinks was perfect. I really recommend Olde Hansa.

The hotel is well positioned in the old town although this access is through the pub which is a little disconcerting. The room was tiny with no room for luggage. On examination the " double bed" was actually a camp bed, although quite comfortable. Breakfast was meagre with limited breads, and some greasy hot food. This isn't a four star hotel. I had a massage on site which was quite good and reasonably priced.

We stayed for three nights early September 2012 it was very central to the Old Town and easy to get to from the airport. Just take airport bus to stop number six across thr road from the Old Town cost 2euros. The hotel was clean warm and the breakfast was great. We would stay here again

Room Tip: Floor four quiet no outside noise
