Inside it looks just as the name implies....the former home of a wealthy merchant, with many of its ancient walls and ceilings designated part of the Tallinn UNESCO Heritage site. Our room, with one such ceiling, was huge and comfortably and stylishly furnished.
Merchant's House couldn't be more central in the old town, the downside being the proximity of several very noisy bars (as almost anywhere in old Tallinn). But don't let that put you off; either stay Sun to Thurs - which are much quieter - or book a room at the back.
Breakfasts aren't the greatest, but quite adequate - and the happy hours are very appealing.
The hotel staff are superb..
