If you value location as I do when you travel then this hotel is a winner. We stayed two nights, got there early on boat from Stockholm and even thou our room was not ready we did get to leave our belongings . We had booked their least expensive room so it was in the back facing a busy street. (This hotel is right on the wall by Fat Margaret's Gate, one of the principal entrances to the walled Old town). It was hot so we had to open the windows and it can get a little noisy, if you are a light sleeper I would recommend you book a premium room which face the front and since The Old Town is mostly pedestrian it is very quiet. The room was average size for european standards and clean, no frills but we were not expecting any either. It is an easy walk to the pier and of course you can walk everywhere in the Old Town. Tallin is a beautifully preserved medieval town, full of nice shops, restaurants, cafes and little surprises at every corner, I would say my kind of town. Prices were lower than in other Baltic cities we visited in this trip, but were not rock bottom prices either. We had good weather, very confortable, it only rained late one night as we made our way from dinner to our hotel. The hotel breakfast was a very nice buffet and the hotel had free wi-fi and the use of one computer in the lobby. The hotel staff was very nice. The hotel does not have safes in the rooms but you can leave your valuables in the safe at the front desk.
