Poska Villa
Ranked #5 of 42 Tallinn B&B and Inns
Reviewed 30 August 2012

Very nice location. Very frienldy staff - you really feel yourself by grandma :-) If I could give 6 points for the service I would do that. Breakfast is simple, but is more than OK. In addition to normal breakfast food you will get smth special every day, like mash or blinis. Our room was on the top floor and it was too hot to sleep - please keep it in mind during warm summer days. It can be loud if you open the window, especially considering loud sea gulls in the morning. Bed was a bit too soft to our taste. Nevertheless, our highest recommenation! Poskavilla is smth really special.

Reviewed 30 May 2010

If you wish to be away from the throngs that the ferry boats from Helsinki and Baltic Sea cruise liners discorge in Tallinn's lovely old town, Poska Villa is your place. The near by local bus or tram will take you to old town for 25 krooni.

The breakfast is hearty and nicely served. Our "yellow" room was large and adjacent to a shared refrigerator in the hall. Poska Villa is located on a good sized plot of land in Tallinn's leafy Kadriorg residential district abuting the park of the same name. It is a fifteen minute walk through the park to the Gulf of Finland. Peter the Great's castle is close by.

The only disadvantage we found was that the street corner is busy with traffic and the glare from a street light outside our window came in due to the lack of heavy curtains or draperies. Heat would be a problem in the summer due to the western exposure of the room.

All in all this was pleasant stay next to the Self Help and Advisory Center for Senior Citizens, Estonia's largest NGO of this nature.

My family and I spent two nights at Poska Villa, and two nights at a different B+B in the heart of old town. Poska Villa is in an interesting neighborhood, its an easy tram ride, and there is a lovely inexpensive cafe very close, a large grocery store about a 10 minute walk, and its possible to walk to a bus stop for the airport. The neighborhood felt safe, and the B+B itself was comfortable and charming. We were fed a generous and delicious breakfast, including a cooked hot cereal that was a local food.

My only complaint was that the pillows were lumpy.

The Poska Villa is a wonderful environment for your stay in Tallinn. the ladies who run the villa and cook your breakfast are always helpful. It is within walking distance of Peter the Greats Villa that he built for Catherine and within several blocks of the trollies. It is two blocks of a local grocery store. I will always stay here when visiting.

Poska villa is a charming little guesthouse in the Kadriorg area. Peaceful, quiet, yet not too far from the old town. Staff friendly and helpful. A lot cosier than a hotel, and cheaper. Excellent value.
