Good, clean tourist class hotel. 5 mins. walk to the edge of the old town. Very near a ferry terminal, though little noise. Small but adequate room, cleaned every day, towels changed daily, bedding changed once while we were there, our stay was for 4 nights in April. We had a room on the 4th floor with a lovely view of the old town.....I did ask for this floor and got it with no problem. We found quite a number of good restaurants/cafes in the area, not far to walk to any of them, and a good range of price brackets, from a little pricey to cheap buffet style. We found our money went a long way in Estonia !!! A bit of advice, the city tour bus is a bit disappointing and too dear for what you get, the cleaners start early and scrape furniture along the laminate flooring......no chance of a lie in !!!, beds quite small and the matresses tended to move, careful not to fall out of bed, and lastly, we got to the hotel around 11am and asked if it was possible to have a room before the usual check in time of 2pm, they said yes but it would cost us 6 Euros even though rooms were cleaned and available. Very good bus service from airport to hotel and back, Number 2, cost 1 Euro. Our short city break was made even better with the lovely blue skies and sunshine if a little cold, but take the right clothing and no probs. Some minor problems with the room on arrival, most of which were sorted out within hours of being reported.

This hotel is a great, basic, low budget hotel. The breakfast was good and the family room was massive. Very clean. Very helpful staff. About 10 minutes walk from the old town (once you have got your barings).

We stayed for 3 nights in August 2011 on my 30th b-day trip.
When booking the room we were PROMISED to get a room from the highest (4th) floor with a nice view.

Our room was at the 3rd floor, facing the terminal wall. Very thin walls and sealing, could hear everything from upstairs. When I asked why they didn't keep their promise, I was told there is a large group that they put on the uppest floor. Working on the industry my self I would have understood that IF they would have not PROMISED us the room from the 4th with the view.

Breakfast was terrible, yogurth warm, eggs cold and very little for a vegetarian to eat (as well as in the restaurant in the evening.)
Luckuly there was a good hotel where we had stayed before near by with a good restaurant.
The staff never sayed hello when walking by and didn't collect the empty plates from the tables once during breakfast. There were two girls from the staff just standing in the breakfast room.
We had breakfast at the hotel only on the first morning.
After making a complaint to the hotel about everything that went wrong, they did not offer any compensation or an apology.
My birthday was partly ruined because of this hotel.
Nothing wrong with the city it self, it's my favourite city in the world. :)

Not a bad cheap hotel for Tallinn. Lovely city and clean hotel however a little basic and felt a little cold inside due to the decor. Would recommend this hotel for a night if you are travelling by ferry. Not too far to walk into the city centre but no good restaurants nearby.

just got back from a wonderful break in freezing cold tallinn!
The portus is a very basic hotel, reminded me a bit like big yellow self storage with the funny doors and huge white numbers on them.
We had 2 single beds in our room, the beds cannot complain were incredibly comfortable, with a duvet ( highly unusual!) . we had 2 fantastic nights sleep, however there version of a pillow left a lot to be desired, half of 1 more like. and you only get 1!!!!!
we had dinner in the hotel restaurant, and cannot fault this. wonderful food, decent price.
The breakfast for a continental was disgusting, seriously who wants meatballs and frankfurters for breakfast?????? and there was beer with the orange juice? STRANGE
considering the location next to the port, the noise level was very low, and we absaloutely loved tallinn, if maybe not so much the snow!
The old town is a 10/15 minute walk ( not 5 mins as other reviewers have stated) and is wonderful. especially the stunning russian cathedral at the top of the hill (gorgeous!!!!!!).
we loved tallinn so thinking of going back again when its a bit warmer!

Got a great package for New Year's in this hotel, stayed a couple of nights. Happy with almost everything, although the feel is more of a hostel than a hotel, the staff is friendly and it was possible to extend room until 5 PM on New Year's day for 6,50€, quite a nice feature. Late night drinks were possible in lobby, so easy-going and nice, can be recommended for the price and ease of access particularly to Tallink ferries. The beds are very single, made for teenagers, someone in group got a sore back.

I liked the hotel. It deserves the three star rating. Especially suitable for those who departure with an early ferry to Helsinki: the terminal D is located right in front. Reaching the airport is also easy with bus 2. It takes just 20 minutes. The Old Town is in 5 minutes walk.
Free Wifi in rooms, breakfast is standard.
