As others have noted, our taxi had to drop us 30m from the hotel door, so we pulled our cases along the path, no big deal really, Once inside the valet took our cases up to the room. Pleasant reception and service staff generally. The hotel organised a taxi for us to the airport on leaving and taxi was waiting outside the door at the allotted time.
The hotel is pleasant, clean and very well presented.We had a room on the 5th floor
9there is a lift) with twin beds. Room was a good size with a small couch and flat screen TV. Shower over bath in a good size bathroom. Good hot water. Bathrobes and slippers supplied and a set of scales in the bathroom, but no iron in the room and no tea/ coffee making facilities in the room. We asked for a non smoking room and unlike some other reviewers, there was no hint of smoke smell in our room. Also our room was very quiet and we had a comfortable nights sleep.
Good wardrobe space and room safe. Bottled water supplied (the hotel book indicates the tap water is filtered and safe to drink but others recommend not to drink tap water in Tallinn) supplied but was not replenished by housekeeping.
The breakfast buffet was very good with a big range to chose from including cooked breakfast and with several additional options (eg omlettes, pancakes etc) that could be ordered if desired.
The location is great for exploring old Tallinn being near to market square. We were there off season but I can imagine the old town is chaotic with visitors in summer. We didnt eat at the hotel's Tchaikovsky restaurant but the Dominic restaurant across the road form the hotel was excellent.
