“A good choice for a reasonable price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014

The hotel is located very close to the Old Town, at a walking distance from the Orthodox Cathedral, the Kiek In De Kök tower, and Toompea Castle, although to get to these places one must climb a steep hill which can be a lnot so confortable specially pn a rainy , windy or snowy day so common in beautiful Tallinn. Besides that, you have also to cross a small park where we saw a number of young people using drugs. We didn't feel insecure, but we never know...

The hotel staff is very kind and speaks excellent English - as everybody in the Baltics. They serve a very good breakfast. The hotel is well renovated, the rooms are clean, silent and well decorated. We've had a very pleasant time and we'll certainly come back.

Room Tip: If you want to avoid the traffic noise, please choose one of tha back rooms.

We stayed in a recently renovated area of the hotel so the room quality and its equipment were excellent. The hotel ranks really high in terms of comfort and cleanness. Be aware that the hotel is close to the Toompea Castle, so until the down town center is a 15 minutes walk.

The hotel breakfast is divided between the hotel's restaurant and cafe. We sat in the restaurant area and were invited to go to the cafe without understanding why. The breakfast was below the standard of a 4 stars hotel, being poor. In the restaurant the hotel had a special menu with a promotion. A couple sat next to us and waited around 1 hour and a half for their meal. So we opted to ask for something else and the food was really bad for the price asked, opinion shared by other guests. The hotel staff was unfriendly. So in conclusion and unfortunately the hotel great facilities and conditions are not followed by its staff or meals' quality.

I stayed in L'ermitage (where's the 'H' gone?) with a group of singers on a tour, and found the place clean and perfectly good for a short stay.

It's location is good in some ways, in that it's physically not far from the high town, and is reasonably quiet (though on a main road). To get to the main old town involves hiking over the hill which was an issue on a miserable wet evening since that's where all the restaurants are. It's also not far from the railway station, should that be useful.

My room, in the very front, was small with heavily sloping ceiling and a window sheer with the front of the building. It was by some distance the smallest room on the tour - though it may be that the price (had I paid it) would have made up for this. Others, staying in other parts of the hotel, reported better and bigger rooms. One, though, gave up and paid for an upgrade - which was very reasonable at E25/night to have his own Sauna. Given that they wanted E50 to use the main sauna he was delighted.

Breakfast was a little disappointing - with less quality in the offer than we'd had in other hotels on the trip. The pastries was nice, though. There was no gathering point or bar for the evening other than in the rather cramped lobby.

Located nicely near the old town, easy access from the harbour. I was glad there was a carage, but driving in was quite a challenge as the entrance was so narrow.
The standard room was smallish but very clean and comfortable.

While the room was very stylish and met every expectation (the bed! Oh, the bed is sooo comfy!) I have from a hotel in this category/price range, I was disappointed by the service - negligent and I don't think I ever saw a smile - and with the breakfast. There are two breakfast rooms, of which one is crowded, noisy and lacks air con. Also, there weren't many options so I ended up eating milk and cereals.

Upon checking out they wanted to charge us for a drink that we didn't have. The staff started looking through all the receipts from the night before, and just like we said, they couldn't find one. Everyone can make a mistake, but they didn't even comment it or apologize.

Location is good, close to the old town.

Room Tip: Ask for bathtub and a room towards the "backside".

Location of this hotel is perfect. It's within walking distance from Old Town in the quiet area, so you get good sleep quality.

We had 3 different rooms.

Our Superior romance room was all what the title says. Room with Sauna was also excellent, all tough some one had turned sauna so hot that we needed to adjust it little down and we are Finn's! Normal superior room was .. hmm .. normal in it's category.

Breakfast room had a homely feeling, I love it on my travels. This atmosphere might change when the tourist season goes overdrive.

All together.. Excellent hotel!

Great location, nice, cosy, clean roooms, comfortable bed, good breakfast.
Special thanks to Ellu from the reception desk, who helped us with the ferry trip to Helsinki and offered us a breakfast box early in the morning.
