“Great little hotel - Best location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 November 2011

This is a very quaint little boutique hotel. Nice small rooms with all the basics - compfy bed, nice linens, small desk, TV, small bathroom. The staff is what makes this place a dream. They will help you do anything. They booked all my reservations, made recommendations on where to go, prearranged my taxi, helped me find great places to eat. They are extremely helpful. Be sure to ask for a quiet room otherwise it can be a bit noisy.

Hotel is located 1/2 block off the main square, so you can't get a better location. Highly recommend. Also be sure to book the KGB Museum. You need reservations. Call ahead, since they have additional tours that are one of two languages. If you book in advance you have more options for english.

Tallinn was a town I was not familiar with, after seeing the photos, decided I needed to go and it exceeded all expectations. Loved the town - great for a 2 or 3 day get away. The free walking tour was also nice. Go enjoy a charming town.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room

We stayed 3 nights in this perfectly situated hotel, just round the corner from the main Town Square. The staff were extremely helpful, the bedrooms very comfortable and quiet and breakfast very tasty..all in all a great experience. Loved the sauna in the cellar after a long day exploring the sights of Tallinn. Excellent value as part of package booked through Cresta.

Room Tip: We had a room at the back of the hotel which was lovely and quiet would imagine if there are rooms...

Very comfortable and unique hotel in the very center of the town. Only few steps away from the main old square and right in front of a huge brewery where to get some easy and fast food.
Rooms are placed on various floors but also around what once was the main courtyard and that makes the building very attractive.
Rooms are very clean, generally quite big and well accessorized. Staff super helpful and kind.
Breakfast has a very big buffett and you can ask for your own kind of eggs, all well prepared. Spa is included in the room fee with a short notice reservation.
Price/quality ratio is definitely worth.

I stayed at this old hansa style hotel during a romantic getaway. This was a unique experience with the room in the courtyard with its own entrance; the deco of the room was stylish and elegant, with a spacious bathroom. The location of the hotel is as good as can be. The hotel's breakfast room was in the basement; beautifully lit space and harmonious atmosphere. All in all, a unique experience, one of the best hotel stays ever - I will definitely come back to this hotel whenever I visit Tallinn.

We enjoyed staying in this hotel which was in an ideal situation just off the old town square .
The welcome was very warm , our room which was on the third floor was a bit of climb ( no elevator) but this did not bother us.
Our room 304 although quite small was lovely and modern ,clean , warm and very quiet.
The breakfast room was lovely with good selection of food. We didn`t have time to use the sauna.
Very good value for money !

We stayed at the merchants house hotel the weekend of 16th - 18th september 2011. The hotel is situated in a side street off the old town square and is close walking distance to all the main attractions. This hotel is a briliant find, the staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble, the decor and furnishings were very contemporary. The ice bar isn't actually an 'ice bar' however, but it was quite cosy and did the job for a quick vodka shot before bed!!
We were upgraded to one of the suites. The room was spacious, with roll top bath in the middle of the room and comfortable bed. My only comment about the room was that the lighting was subdued and it was slightly hard to see some things, however, it did create a romantic ambience and those with better eyesight would be okay.
Breakfast is taken downstairs in the cellars, low ceilings and little alcoves, breakfast is help yourself with the staff clearing your table for you. All the usual things on offer, meats, cheeses, even smoked salmon, full english, breads, croissants, yoghurts, really good choice.
There are spa facilities which we didn't have the chance to use, but had we stayed longer would have definitely made use of. There's a welcome fire in the lounge area which in the winter will be popular.
Overall a lovely quiet hotel. Would recommend.

Room Tip: We were upgraded to the Merchants Suite, room 210.

Have just returned from a short visit to Tallin staying at the Merchants House Hotel and would thoroughly recommend it. The location is perfect - just one minute's walk from the main square in the old town with lots of shops and restaurants nearby. The room we had was perhaps a little on the small side, but very well equipped with everything you could want including flatscreen TV, bathrobes & slippers. The beds were extremely comfortable and the bathroom excellent with a great overhead shower and plenty hot water. The staff were extremely friendly & helpful and the breakfast couldn't be bettered. All in all a great place to stay in Tallin. The free walking tour of the old town, (leaves from the Tourist Info Office) conducted by a young student was just great and would thoroughly recommend it.
