This hotel is promoted as a 4 or even a 5 star hotel, but compared to West-Europe or Asia, it is more like a 3 star hotel. Staff is really friendly. It is close (5-10 minutes taxi-ride) to the Vikingline ferry. By the way: don't be cheated by taxi-drivers and always ask them to turn on the meter.
Breakfast was good, but nothing execptional. The hote is on the edge of the city centre. Tallinn can be easily visited on foot. View from the hotel room was great. (Although our friend who stayed in another room had a wall view room. :) ) I give it 4 stars, because I think you have to see it in proportion to the country, with all respect.
The Olde Hanse restaurant is hyped in reviews, but we had a very dissapointing experience. Okay, the staff is friendly and the theme is nice, but the food and wine were terrible. I can recommend restaurant Ribe.
If you wan't to visit a "wrong" club, go to the Venus Club and drink some Finlandia Vodka. :)
- 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
