I can't say too much about this hotel, particularly regarding the service they provided. The receptionist I originally contacted when I made reservations went to a lot of trouble to answer my questions before we arrived: this included information about buses from St. Petersburg to Tallinn, purchasing ferry tickets to Helsinki, and suggesting a local car rental agency. I would have thought this information was readily available on the internet, but it wasn't. The small Tallinn-based company, Amestic, that rented us a Honda Civic sedan picked us up at the hotel and dropped us off at the ferry terminal when we returned to Tallinn a week later (we drove into Latvia and Lithuanian as far south as Nida on the Curonian Spit—a fabulous trip). The car cost us less to rent than any of the bigger agencies and included pickup and drop-off services that made things very convenient.
Service during our stay at the hotel was exemplary. We stayed two nights. Our room which bordered on the inner courtyard was extremely quiet and cool in the evenings; the bathroom was unique: large, with two sinks and very modern fixtures, and was 'sunken'...you walked down three or four steps into it, giving it a cozy feel. The room itself was very nicely appointed and a good size. In the evenings we sat in the quiet courtyard and enjoyed some of the vodka we bought in Russia.
A great central location in the old town, on a charming street. Good restaurants everywhere! We enjoyed our trip to the Baltic countries so much that we're thinking of returning for a longer period. And we wouldn't hesitate staying at the Merchant's Hotel again.
