“Lovely Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 December 2008

Enjoyed our 3 night stay very much. The journey from airport easy, caught no 2 bus. Reception polite and friendly.
Room was a good size and well decorated. Liked the Dressing Robes left and nice toiletries in the bathroom.
Hotel was in a good location, at the start of the old town so never too far to walk to sight see. The main square had quite a few restaurants and cafe's -should try the one next to the old pharmacy, you go down below - very cosy and it does lovely hot chocolate. Was there when Christmas markets were in the square, sold mostly the same stuff, but had a magical feel. More relaxing than last year in Prague.
Breakfasts were average. Could of done with maybe some bacon to go with eggs.
Would recommend "Ribe" restaurant if you like french cuisine.
would stay again and highly recommend this hotel

In Tallinn on business or to have fun?

Doesn't matter, because either way you're in for a very pleasant and relaxing stay. Trust me, the kind of service provided here is something to be envied by most of the hotels in Western Europe.

You're a stone's throw from the gorgeous Town Hall and other musts. Actually, you ARE in the OLD TOWN.

The rooms are equipped and furnished to state-of-the-art standards without losing its somewhat old-fashioned charm.

Again, my thanks goes out to the impeccably polite and helpful staff that even provided me with a laptop and wireless internet for the time of sojourn. Free of charge, of course.

Needless to say about the amenities such as a complimentary breakfast in one of the exquisite rooms of the hotel. An hour or two by the fireplace sipping a cup of hot coffee or [insert your drink of choice] wouldn't hurt either especially when it's nippy outside.

Therefore, if you happen to be in the capital of Estonia, stay at the Savoy (the mere Oscar Wilde-ish sound of it!), accept no substitute.

Have a great trip!

Best regards to all of you travelers and adventure-seekers out there)

Lovely hotel in the centre of Tallinn.
Went with my 60 year old mother who was more than happy with the comfort and boutique nature of the hotel.
The room was very comfortable and large enough for us both for a four night stay.
Breakfast was pleasant - traditional continental style with ham, cheese, fresh bread.

Only slight disadvantages were the shower design (which leaked all over the floor, but was cleaned every day by chambermaids) and lack of sauna/hot tub which seem to be in most other hotels in the region.

Staff were very pleasant and accommodating, and prices in the restaurant were reasonable - though wine was expensive.

Would definately go back though as the location was great and could walk to every destination within the town.
Only slight concern is that it may be a little noisy at peak season.

  • Liked — Location, cosy boutique style
  • Disliked — leaky shower

The Savoy Boutique Hotel is an absolute gem for a place to stay. Beautifully restored and immaculately clean, the rooms are generously sized and stylishly furnished. The bathrooms are fab and the staff are pleasant and helpful.
The breakfast buffet is varied and plentiful and will fill any hungry tum!
Situated on the edge of the Old Town, it took less than 5 minutes to get to the Old Town square, so a great location to boot because being on the edge slightly certainly meant for a quieter location.
Tallinn itself is pretty and easy to get around. For me, 3 days was too long in the town as there is very little to do and see if the weather is bad.

We were originally booked in to the Hotel Bern but as they had overbooked we were sent over to the Savoy Hotel - glad we did!
Very nice rooms with great views over the Old Town. Great location - just a few minutes walk to the main Square.
Very friendly staff, hotel very chic and is clearly looked after very well. Highly recommended.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2008

I have just returned from Tallinn, where we enjoyed a 4-day spring break with my husband. We had made the reservation from a website and faced no major problems with reservations and/or payments. The .pdf voucher illustrating our reservation and payment did not open at first, but we were able to sort that out.

The service at the reception was very good, starting from the arrival when we got a room immediately, even if we got there prior to the check-in time. That was comforting as we had had a very early flight, and the ability to strect your legs prior to some heavy sightseeing was great. When leaving the reception called us a taxi with a smile. In between the assistance was always there when needed.

The location of the hotel is excellent to our taste. It is close to the old town square, shopping centres and transportation. After already having stayed at the hotel for a couple of days we found out that the area is the center of the night life in town. One could not believe it, as there was no disturbing noise from the bars. Yes, there is a night club accross the square, but one would not know, unless reading the guidebooks etc.

The room was not huge but it felt cosy. Extra large pillows on bed were a nice touch as you could lift your weary legs on top of them in the evening after having wandered in the city for hours and hours. The bathroom was clean, and the towels changed everyday, even though we would have wanted to use the same ones for a couple of days in order to save the environment. The hotel soap in the small bottles had a little bit strange scent to it(ginseng or someting). Next time I would definately bring my own.

Breakfast was good, and dining in the restaurant was a pleasure. The service is not on the normal international standard, but still ok. Even though the food was good, maybe there was a hint of overpricing. The breakfast selection could have been a bit wider and/or more varying. The drinks in large glasses were somewhat watery to my taste (e.g. Bloody Marys and Pina Coladas) .

In general we enjoyed our stay in Savoy a lot, and would recommend this hotel to others, too.

The hotel is in a very convenient location, just a couple of minutes walk from the Old Town Square. It is a very homely, yet very efficiently run hotel. We had a problem with the room safe which was quickly dealt with and fixed, especially as it was Easter Sunday. My initial opinion of the foyer was 'wow' how cosy - there is a log fire burning with large sofas and the bar is reached at the other end of the foyer. The room is fairly small, but this is what one should expect from a hotel entitled a 'boutique' hotel. Dressing gowns and slippers are provided for your comfort and the underfloor heating in the bathroom is most welcome on a very cold day. Its also handy for drying off boots/outer clothes after being outside. The room is spotless although the towels and dressing gowns could do with some fabric conditioner as they were rather rough. Towels changed daily. Lovely decor in excellent condition and I wouldnt hesitate to stay here again if we return to Tallinn. Also we benefited from a deal by dealing with the hotel directly, which was stay for three nights and pay only for two! Its well worth contacting the hotel directly via the website.

The breakfast is from 7-10am, very courteous staff serve tea and coffee - the selection is of a average to high quality, ranging from the usual cheese/ham/breads to smoked salmon and pickled herring. Some mornings there was a hot selection of sausages etc, in the buffet, other mornings there wasnt, but you could order freshly cooked eggs to your taste, porridge and other hot items served to your table.

The location is fantastic - we were on the fifth floor so the noise was minimal. However, by Thursday the groups of 'stag weekenders' (all men groups out to party) had arrived and were a little noisy queueing for the nightclub along the road.

We had no problems with the taxi drivers. They were quick, drove safely and never ripped us off. We used the taxi rank outside the airport to get us to the hotel and the hotel staff phoned for one for our trip back. It cost approx 105 EEK per journey (about £5).

We loved Tallin, the Old Town is beautiful and I recommend it.
