We stayed in Apartment/Room 6. It was so beautiful. The window with exposed stonework was gorgeous, the wood flooring amazing, and touches like shelving built into the wall with a glass door and rope lining the stairs were fantastic. The bathroom was inside what used to be the chimney. Sounds odd but it was quite unique. The door to enter is shorter than many adults. There are some kitchen facilities which we didn't get a chance to use but it was nice to have an option. Jaan Parn is a welcoming host. It is his brilliance that designed the room. He is also a jewelry designer and he designed a beautiful piece for me. I have gotten nothing but compliments on it and everyone notices it. Staying here also gives you easy access to the Meistrite Hoov (Master's Courtyard) which is filled with artisans making and selling glass, ceramics, wool, leather, jewelry, wood, etc. Many people come to the courtyard as a tourist sight so we felt kind of exclusive getting to to stay here. Be prepared to spend money with the various artisans because there are many awesome items to choose from. If I return to Tallinn I would definitely stay here again.
