We stayed in room 205 and it cost roughly $150 CDN/night. The bedroom was minuscule and the hotel had not exactly added any extras to improve the situation. The large, too soft bed did not have any space on either side, making getting up in the middle of the night without waking my partner a problem. Also, there was no space to put my glasses, our books, a glass of water, etc. This could have been fixed with the installation of a shelf on the wall.
No air conditioning and it was very hot but they provided a fan, which we moved to the mini-bar in order to get it blowing on us though the night. As for our bags, with only one luggage rack and no space to move around, it was a bit of a challenge. The room had a wardrobe and a desk.
The bathroom has been recently renovated and was really nice with lots of natural light from the tall windows.
The room had a mini-bar and small flat screen TV with a good selection of channels.
On the plus side, our room overlooked the quiet courtyard and the hotel is practically on the main square.
The excellent hot buffet breakfast was served in the charming basement restaurant. Excellent tea and coffee served by really nice hotel staff.
We booked the hotel sauna once (it really was hot when we were there) and it was great. The sauna is in a sort of spa area and it was very comfortable and private.
We had drinks at the hotel bar served out of carved ice shooter glasses and met a nice couple staying in one of the suites. They had a huge room with their very own private sauna.
The hotel staff was very helpful with advice, printing out e-tickets, etc.
Tallinn is a very charming place...if you go, I encourage you to take the City Bike self-guided tour of Lahemaa National Park.
