“Good B&B outside Tallin central.”
Reviewed 13 September 2013

Good B&B outside Tallinn central in a quiet residential area. Center is easily reachable by bus no.3 from the main road, about 150m away, in 5-6 stops. Nice hosts although not too talkative, but then their English was good though not perfect. Wonderful room with private bathroom + TV and good breakfast for an additional €9.- Giant Rimi supermarket just beside the bus stop on the main road 150m away. Nice alternative to a hostel. I would stay there again next time in Tallinn.

Reviewed 6 September 2012

We stayed at Valge Villa 4 nights, based on previous positive reviews and our personal requirements of a B&B with larger beds, laundry facility and not located in Old Town Tallinn. We were very disappointed. The plumbing did not function well (leaky faucets, can't put toilet paper in the toilet, toilets don't flush well), beds were uncomfortable, hosts did not visit with us except as necessary, breakfast was minimal. This might be an okay option if you were on a tight budget, weren't particular about plumbing, and don't want to interact with hosts and other guests...more impersonal feel than we are used to in B&Bs in Europe, Canada or USA. It is near a supermarket, near bus lines, near some restaurants and is in a nice, residential location.

I did a 4-day-trip with my girlfriend to Tallinn on Easter 2011. Luckily I still found an available room (203) at the White Villa (Valge Villa).
The overall-impression: Staying there feels like being invited to somebody's home. It is rather a private accomodation than a hotel. But it has it's charme!
The villa is a big wooden house with rooms for 25 persons. The family running the business is friendly, helpful and we had some nice conversations.
The room (203) is the only one with a separate Toilet / bath which is the only reason not to rate it 5 stars. Everything else was good / clean. You got much more comfort than expected - considering the price!
Breakfast was very good, the Sauna is also worth using (20 Euro extra).
Location is 10 Minutes from city centre by bus (buy 10 tickets - its much cheaper!)
I can truly recommend the white Villa if you're looking for a great comfort/price relation and do not expect a 150 Euro-5star-Hotel with a pool ;-)

Room Tip: Ground level (10x) has most comfort!

I stayed here for just over 2 weeks while visiting relatives and had a great time. The Villa is pretty and the hosts gracious. It is very convenient to the trolley bus that goes to the Old Town and also to the Open Air Museum. You can walk to the supermarket and if you feel like hiking you can also walk to the mall that has stores, a money exchange and a post office. I felt very safe here and the hosts were just wonderful. I'll definately stay again on my next trip to tallinn.

I still find this guesthouse/hotel a very nice and quiet place to stay in Tallinn. The breakfast is excellent and the rooms are nice and quite big.

This is a soviet era private house, located far from the romantic and action packed center. If you don't have a car, you need to ride trolleys or buses to get there. Consider locations that are in the Old Town or close by, because that's where everything is at in Tallinn.

The Villa Valge is a traditional Estonian house run by a very friendly and helpful family.

We had a large suite with a kitchenette and dining area on the upper level and bedroom, with huge bed, and shower room on the lower level. We also had a balcony although being September this did not get much use!

The room was clad in pine and despite the weather being pretty cold our apartment was very warm and cosy.

The Villa is in a nice quiet leafy residential district about 20 minutes from the old city. The local trolley bus service is excellent and we never waited more than 5 minutes - the cheapest way to travel is to buy a book of 10 tickets for 90EEK.

Staying at the Villa Valge certainly enhanced our trip to Tallinn
