I recently stayed here, during my second visit to Tallinn. I needed somewhere cheap, but comfortable, and also reasonably central. All three boxes were ticked.
It's a few minutes walk from the hotel to the centre of old town. A bit further to the newer town, but we'd no reason to go that far. 10 minutes in a cab to and from the airport, and the taxis were between 8 and 10 euro per journey.
The hotel itself is slightly bigger than I expected it to be. Though having said that, the two rooms me and a friend occupied were very small. Single rooms, big enough for one person each. Old style television on the wall, with one English speaking channel (MTV unfortunately).
There was plenty of hot water, and the room and ensuite bathroom were perfectly clean.
The bed was soft, but comfortable.
I had a view out to the front of the hotel, overlooking the tram station. The noise of the trams might bother some people, but I didn't find it intrusive at all. I always carry earplugs when travelling, but I didn't need to use them here.
You can access free WiFi in the lobby, and there is a PC you can use if you need to. I'm deducting one star for the lack of WiFi in the hotel rooms. If you have a room closer to the lobby, you still might be able to connect though.
I'd have no problem staying here again, if money was tight. If money wasn't tight, I'd probably upgrade to a slightly bigger more contemporary hotel with a bar and bigger rooms etc.. But for the price I paid, I was more than happy.
