This hotel is owned by Russians and does not, therefore, reflect Estonia in any way.The decor is unmistakeably Slavic from the tiling in the en suite down to the pattern on the stair carpet which was so garish that it made me feel dizzy. The Russian woman on reception was polite but not particularly friendly. When I asked for an extra pillow, the one I received had stains on the pillow case! Our room was on the third floor and as there are no lifts, this meant a difficult trek up and down the stairs with our baggage. The room itself was small, very stuffy and pretty basic. The breakfast room was unbelievably stuffy and overcrowded - so much so that I could not eat as I began to feel slightly unwell. I didn't miss much though - the fare on offer was pretty mediocre and I spotted a square chunk of omelette which was so stiff that it could have stood up and walked off on its own! The only positive comment I have to make about this hotel is its central location in the old town. Finally, a warning to future guests. Do not order a taxi from the hotel reception! We did just that and a Russian taxi driver turned up to take us to the airport. His driving was erratic and dangerous and I have never seen a taxi meter turn around so fast! He wanted to charge us 22 euros to the airport - a journey which normally should cost a maximum of 12 euros. Needless to say, we did not pay the full amount.
