This is a great hotel in the city center. It's near Old Town and right across the street from Viru shopping center. The breakfast was wonderful with plenty to choose from. Staff was also very friendly and helpful. I highly recommend this hotel!

Room Tip: Ask for non-smoking when booking

Booked a weekend trip to Tallin last minute. As quite a few hotels had no room, we had to divide our weekend stay using 2 different hotels. 1 of them was Tallink City Hotel.

Location: About 10 minutes walk from the ferry/cruise terminal and 5 minutes walk to the old town. Viru keskus mall at the other side of the street. A good location.

Room: A nice and spacious room. Airco worked fine (it was 33c that day). A positive aspect was that the room and especially the bathroom was extremely clean. Beds (including pillows) were very comfortable.
The bathroom had a window, which made it very bright (that was positive and negative at the same time).
The curtains in the room are difficult to completely close.

Breakfast: Extensive breakfast with nice choices in a cosy restaurant atmosphere. We came after 10am in the morning and it was not crowded.

Hotel: Staff was very professional and kind.

All in all, I think this is a good place to stay if you want to spend a weekend in Tallinn. We paid 87.5Euros including breakfast. I assume you may get it cheaper since we booked it only a few days before. We stayed our 2nd night in Park Inn, that was 20 Euros cheaper, but I can only recommend to pay the 20 Euros more and stay at Tallink City Hotel.

I stayed here for a couple of nights for the recent Champions Leage game between Shamrock Rovers and FC Flora.

The hotel was fully booked at the time and I was only able to check into a smoking room at 2.30pm. I wasgiven a room on the 9th floor, which was fine as the elevator is fast.

The room itself was basic enough. Not very big, 2 single beds, tv, minibar, A/C, shower (no bath), free wifi & a view overlooking the shopping center opposite.

A buffet breakfast was included in my rate and was served from 7 to 10. This was a very busy affair at 9am, but there was a good variety of food.

The location is a €8-10 taxi far from the airport. It is situated directly across from a large shopping center. It is also within a 5 minute walk of the historic old city. The old city in Tallin is lovley, but it is nice to be able to leave it at times, and the metallic look of the Tallink provides a much needed break from the old city architecture!

I have no problem recommending this hotel.

Room Tip: The best rates I could find were on the hotel website

We booked our trip with TallinkSilja. They booked us into Tallink City Hotel. I am unable to find anything negative to say about this hotel and its staff. It is friendly, calm, clean, welcoming, near the historical Centre, just at the buss stop to the Harbour; The breakfast is wonderful, there is everything you can think of and everything you have not thought of. If you want to rest you can sit in the lounge and read the international Newspapers, nobody will force you to order anything, should yo wish to have a drink they are excellent and when you are used to prices in Paris and London you wonder why you have not been here more often. Just a word of warning, apparently it belongs to the excellent Tallinlink Company, yet now one month later I am still trying to find out why I had to pay the trip three times. But have no hesitation, the City Hotel is the place were you want to stay if you want quality and peace.

We stayed in this hotel for one night in late June. The hotel interior and the hotel rooms looked more like from a cruise ship than from a four star hotel, which is not all that surprising as the core competence of Tallink Silja is not in Hotel business but in cruises.
The rooms were a bit outdated, yet still were adequate enough for a short stay. The location of the hotel is the best part as it is located close to the old town and next to the Viru shopping mall and a movie theatre.
