We booked the courtyard suite and couldn't have been more happy with our choice!We took advantage of the winter package which was fabulous,this included free transfers to and from the airport,a free 3 course dinner,our own personal guided tour and we also got a special room rate.
Our room was really cosy after being out and about in lovely but cold Tallinn, we even had our own sauna to come back to.The decor throughout was very elegant and the attention to detail was second to none,they even print their own daily paper with news from home and a crossword etc,the staff were all lovely and couldn't do enough for us.
The location was excellent,right in the middle of the old town(definitely the place to be)there's loads of great bars and restaurants around and everybody speaks English.A definite highlight was going to the "wine attic"called "veinipooning"which is on the third floor above a casino and a bar and most people don't know it's there,when we went there was just us and one other couple, a roaring fireplace, some old forties music and a friendly,knowledgeable but unobtrusive owner.

I didn't actually stay at the Merchant's House Hotel, but on my last night in Tallinn I ate in the downstairs restaurant. The meal I enjoyed there was quite simply one of the best I have ever had; it was just a shame there were no other customers there to enjoy the excellent food, as I had the place to myself that night.
On the basis of the superb food, and the other reviews, I would definitely consider staying there the next time I visit Tallinn.

We recently stayed at this hotel on our first trip to Tallinn. The hotel is in a perfect location just off the Old Town Square. Our room was lovely. It was separated into two parts, one with the bed and a flat screen TV, wardrobe etc, and the other with a sofa, table, mini bar and TV. It was really like having a sort of mini suite. The room was boiling hot the first night but there is a remote for temp control so once we figured that out we could cool down a bit.
We had lovely cocktails one evening on our way out in the Ice Bar but sadly were the only ones in there!
The reception staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this hotel to friends and family.

We were very happy to have found this hotel. Very comfortable, spacious room with free wi-fi access, and modern decor. Excellent location, just off main square in old town. Lovely breakfast room in previous cellar of the building. Buffet breakfast plus hot cooked breakfast available. Staff spoke English and were very helpful. Great value for money. No complaints at all, and we would definitely stay there again.

Have travelled to Tallinn 3 times and stayed at the Domina City and the Three Sisters...This was my favorite hotel...It combined the medieval with the modern and had an ideal location in the center of the old town...The room were nice and the staff was very helpful...Tallinn is a great place to visit, has a great vibe and friendly people...There are other nice choices (Swisshotel outside of old town and the Hotel Telegraaf in old town) but the Merchant's House combines everything I wanted out of Tallinn.

Great location, friendly helpful staff. Stayed in the Board Room Suite - massive superking sized bed - very comfortable. Huge wall mounted plasma TV and great sound system. Not at all noisy even though overlooking the Bier Keller - probably due to the great insulation on the windows. Will insisit on staying here again when I next go to Tallinn!
