“OK hotel at OK location”
Reviewed 31 March 2009

Stayed from Friday to Monday. Good location 5 - 10 mins walk from the old city. Rooms are clean, functional and well maintained, but far from cozy. Number of TV-channels beyond the local ones are very limited and some are sync'ed in Russian - *VERY* annoying. Would probably look for another hotel when returning to Tallinn

Stayed here for one night on a business trip.
Loved this hotel.
Was given a Junior Suite. Very large room, with view over city centre. Very large bathroom. Spotless.
English spoken perfecly by staff.
Very reasonable pricing.
Location: right in city centre. 5 minuts walk to old town area.
Will stay here again.

I stayed one night at at the Tallink City Hotel. It looks quite grand on the outside but the rooms are small. I was in town for work and shared a room with a colleague but we were given one big bed instead of 2 small ones!! I found the bathroom untidy. The location is good, just a short walk from the Old Town and also from the ferries if you come from Finland or Sweden.

The breakfast is okay, The yoghurt was too warm for my liking - in my opinion more attention should be given to keep diary products cool. The restaurant where breakfast is served is modern and airy.

If I had to choose between Sokos Hotel Viru and Tallink City Hotel, I'd go for the Sokos Hotel any day. But saying that, the big hotels really lack ambiance, so next time I'm going for a boutique hotel.

  • Liked — It's near a shopping center and the Old Town.
  • Disliked — The dirty bathroom.

We stayed for two nights; standard rooms are very small and cramped with tiny shower room. We upgraded to a de luxe which was very nice - at a price. Hotel facilities are inadequate for the number of rooms - permanent irritable queues for the lifts and an overcrowded breakfast room - lots of jockeying for position around the buffet table. Food and coffee only average. Service OK within their limitations and a good position for the old town.

I had a very pleasant stay in this hotel. The staff are very friendly and courteous. Rooms service was very reasonable and efficient.

The rooms are very clean and of a good size.

The mini bar is well stocked and reasonably priced.

TV has many channels, but the pay movies are a little pricey.

The location of the hotel is very good - just a 5 min walk from the old town square.

Many shops surround the hotel and the hotel offers vouchers for taxis to the airport which can save you more than 50% of normal fares.

Of the 6 hotels I have visited in Tallinn, I have found this to be the best of the bunch.

Stayed here for two nights, excellent location hotel is 5 mins walk from the old city and opposite a shopping mall. If you cut through the shopping mall the walk is shorter. Rooms are large by european standards, very clean, we were on the 9th floor, fantastic views of the harbour and outer tallinn. If you are looking for character don't go here, if you looking for a decent clean moden hotel which has a great breakfast ... then this is it. Staff are very helful too. We arrived early before check in and the concierge locked out bags away so we could go exploring.

We walked all over the old town which was very beautiful and medieval, definately worth its reputation, take a good pair of walking shoes and a camera, a rain coat or umbrella. Like Poland short sharp sudden showers prevail here when you least expect it. There are fantastic views from every corner, its good to get a book and plot your own route.

We did take the bus city tour which they tell you goes from the Viru hotel...it actually goes from across the street from outside a sign that says sex shop.....in case you need the exact location. but you can't miss it as it is in bright red double decker london buses. This was well worth it you see other parts of tallinn left from the soviet era, residential districts and to rest weary feet. We chose a time when it looked as though it was going to rain.

All the restaurants we went in were excellent, the pepper sack was a favourite as well as the cafes in the town square. If you want a different drink try the cranberry cider... excellent stuff.
