We booked a standard room as it was the last one left, and at first, it seemed quite small with the bed in an alcove and no room either side, and the window opposite a wall looking down onto the courtyard. However, even with the almost constant daylight in June and the window open, it turned out to be very private, comfortable and quiet and we slept very well. It is a very solid building and we did not get disturbed at all. The bathroom was a good size, with a shower fixed in the ceiling (no bath), and lots of hot water. It is an old building and you may need to run the water for a few minutes to get it hot.
Breakfast was very good both at start and finish times – salmon, herring, fresh bread, cheese, fresh fruits, tomato, cucumber, eggs, cereal, fresh coffee tea and juice etc .
Free wireless (well Tallinn is the home of Skype) but with such solid walls you may need to go for a wander round the room or hotel for the best reception –the room over reception ( I think it was the library) was quite useful.
I am really glad I read the reviews and did not go for one of the big chain hotels on the outskirts as the hotel has a lot of character yet is so comfortable, and the location was excellent for sightseeing - right next to the main square and lots of restaurants and cafes. I could have stayed a bit longer ...
