This hotel was advertised online as a four star hotel and even has the honour of wining trip advisor awards. However, my experience was really not anywhere near what either of these suggest the standard is here.
We checked in to a very tired looking room that looked as though it hadn't seen a lick of paint since 1999. The wardrobe had no doors on it, the bedside tables were chipped, the curtains drab, and the overal feel was just cheap.
After an initial glance in, we also noticed that the room was actually very dirty. The sofa (an awful beigy brown colour) had obviously had things spilt on it years before and the carpet was just thick with dust. The worst offender, by far, though was the bathroom. It was horrible. The sink splashback was covered with splashes of what looks like blood (see picture) and the toiletries were covered in a layer of dust. I was actually quite ill in my time in Tallinn (stomach bug) and who knows whether it was something I ate or the filth of this room. On the second day the maids came and I had to point out the splashes for them to clean it up. However, after watching them from the sofa, they did hardly any clean of the room.
After a great trip around scandinavia and eastern Europe, this hotel was a real let down. I would not stay here again due to the absolute state the room was in. One of the worst I have ever stayed in.
