“Nice little hotel like old castle”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2011

Nice little hotel almost at the heart of the Tallin's old town. Room was bit small but suitable for one night staying. Breakfast was fabulous. Quite big minus was the shower stall, because it was so small. Because of it my overall review dropps to very good.

Everything about this hotel exceeded our expectations. Staff were helpful - we were offered an upgrade without hesitation when adjoining rooms as requested could not be provided. The Presidential Suite was simply elegant, roomy and spectacular. Kids said cots felt like super comfortable beds - and 14 yr old is adult sized. We ate at the Pub twice and had beautifully presented meals that were delicious. The hotel adjoins the City wall and also an awesome park perfect for strolling. Estonia is still a reasonable priced vacation destination. Highly recommend for a romantic getaway. However, kids ages 14 & 11 both asked to stay at the Imperial again next time we visit.

This little hotel had a great location in the old town, a lot of atmosphere and lovely room. As someone noted before however no air conditioning and leaving the window open meant a very bright light from the school next door and early child noises as well. Breakfast was great as was lunch. Service at dinner was poor. In fact, we finally left when the waiter couldn't be convinced to at least give us a menu. The desk staff were friendly and helpful when asked.

The staff was very kind and accommodating. My room was lovely, it was nicely decorated, clean and spacious. I used the laundry service, which was quick and efficient. The food was great! Lastly, the location was perfect!! Located in old town, adjacent to a wonderful bakery. walking distance from anything and everything you need (Supermarket, Shopping mall etc..located just outside old town walls) I will be back!

Lovely hotel, friendly staff. But no aircon. Getting dressed made us sweatmore than an hour in sauna. Refriderator did not work. So staying inside was hot. We paid full prize for minibar anyway. Breakfast was not so good. Pancakes tasted flour. But the location is good and it was very beautiful and romantic inside. Some noise from the street and from birds (actually) walking on the metalroof just outside the window.( I thougt thiefs were on their way in). Would not go back in summertime, maybe in autumn or winter!

We stayed with friends and were really impressed with this quaint hotel. Our room was very clean, breakfast was really good and served in a traditional castle styled restaurant. Staff were really helpful. Location was superb, few minutes walk to main square - situated right next to city wall.
Slight downside was that there was no air conditioning so we had to leave windows open and there was some noise but nothing too bad. The weekend we picked to visit was the song and dance festival so city was very busy. Think this would be a great, cosy hotel for a winter break. Rooms varied in size - ours on second floor was very big but friends on 3rd floor room a lot smaller.
Would definitely recommend this hotel.

I booked the hotel for a one night stay in Tallin not knowing what to expect, and I was pleasantly surprised. The staff were all really helpful, I had a great room and breakfast was a very rich assortment. The location is perfect for visiting the old city and it's about three minutes walk to the main square. Superb!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The hotel building is from 1877. It was erected against the city wall which is a late phenomenon in historical tradition. In the contemporary organization of the city it was strategically important from the perspective of protecting the city to leave a free space between the city wall and the buildings. The first data about the dwellings being built against the city wall states 17th century when the city wall started to lose its strategic importance over the bastions. No extensive reconstruction has been done in the building, but throughout times an attempt has been made to preserve everything historically valuable. On the second half of the 19th century, the building was owned by family von Stackelbergs. ... more   less
