I stayed in Tallinn at the Baltic Imperial for a work-related conference at the end of March. Overall, I had a great experience with the hotel. I had a single room, which was big enough to be comfortable, with a bed, desk, two chairs, a wardrobe, and a nice bathroom with a shower (no bath). It was easy to unpack everything and still have plenty of room to relax. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, and the wireless worked well throughout the trip (the one time I had problems I mentioned this at the front desk; everything was fine again when I came back later). Related to this, the hotel staff were always friendly and helpful. The included breakfast had a nice combination of cold and warm items, and the attached "Imperial Pub" was a comfortable place to relax. Finally, the location is, in my opinion, ideal: close enough to the old town (maybe 3 minutes from the central square) to see everything, but enough on the edge that I didn't have a problem with street noise, crowds always walking by, etc.
It's actually hard to find cons, but I have two. First, the breakfast is in a cheese-themed restaurant, meaning that the breakfast room has a faint "cheesy" aroma. You can probably take your food to the adjacent pub if this is a problem, and it didn't really bother me, but it's something to be aware of. Second, I think, at the start of my trip, this also gave an "interesting" smell to my room. This cleared shortly after I arrived, and didn't come back over the days I was there.
Overall, a great hotel, in a great location, in a fun city to visit. I would definitely stay again.
- 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
