this hotel pretty much proved to be exactly what we expected The proximity to the town square and Christmas market made it second to none. The girl on the desk on arrival was outstanding...our flight had been delayed and we arrived after 11 o'clock starving.....she took the time to check the websites of local restaurants to find us something suitable still serving at that time of night. Breakfast far surpassed what we expected too!
My only complaint is.....we requested two rooms together since we were traveling with children but we were given one in the courtyard and one on the third floor! far from ideal but since my eldest is in her teens we accepted the rooms. In hindsight I realize I should have requested another straight away but I'm not much of a complainer and it didn't cause us any major problems. Our room was clean and adequate and I'd have been more than happy with it had I not seen the kids room which I thought was beautiful! So Request one of the downstairs Courtyard rooms!!
Also during the Xmas period taxi's don't drive down this street but will drop you about a hundred yards away at the top of the hill.....not a problem but make sure you know what the front of the hotel looks like, we walked straight past it!! and had to ask 3 people for directions!
On the whole I would recommend this hotel to family members and I would use it again if I ever return to Tallinn!
