“Villa Hortensia- good base to explore Tallinn- step back in time”
Reviewed 27 July 2012

We were very pleased with our stay at Villa Hortensia. The Master's Courtyard is charming, and relatively easy to find, right in the middle of Old Town. Our key had been left at the restaurant for us to collect. The room is up a very steep flight of stairs (not for the faint of heart, but handrails help). The room had a very comfortable bed, modern kitchenette and full modern bathroom. The tiny balcony has wooden doors to help darken the room or keep courtyard noise out if you happen to be staying in the summer. Although the room does not have a fan or air conditioning it was quite comfortable. We would recommend Villa Hortensia for anyone who likes a very central location and has good ability to walk.

We stayed here for 3 nights over New Year. The location is second to none - these 6 restored and characterful appartments are tucked away in the cute, cobblestone Masters Courtyard right in the heart of the old town. We opted for one of the small appartments for 55 Euros a night (a really excellent price for this location). The appartment was very compact - it had a small and basic kitchen - with fridge, hotplate and 2 person table/chairs. We chose not to cook while we were here as the restuarant choices locally are plentiful and excellent value for money. There was no kettle in the kitchen which would have been useful for a cup of tea/coffee however the thoughtful owner had left delicious gingerbread and oranges as a welcome gift. The bathroom was adequate with shower, toilet and sink. The bedroom was on a small mezzanine above the main room up wooden stairs leading from the kitchen. We had 2 single beds which were comfortable but there wasn't much floor space on the mezzanine level - the only hanging space for clothes was in the entrance hall downstairs. There is access to a communual lounge with leather sofas and a library. There are two larger suits which are more expensive but are meant to be very nice - balconies, TV's, spacious kitchonettes etc.but we didn't get to see them for ourselves. I would recommend staying here if you are a young couple on a budget, looking for good value (if a little basic) accommodation. Check out their website for more details - www.hoov.ee
