The Swissotel tower is right in the city centre - which is not large - and with a commanding view in all directions. It’s 10 minutes from the airport, and you are immediately taken in hand as soon as you pull up - the luggage on trolleys before you can get out of the car and you are directed to reception.
Check in was quick and efficient and everyone was polite and friendly.
I booked an 'executive room' which was on the 27th floor and had a great view of the harbor. It was 215 euros a night, which is a reasonable amount, so you would expect it to be good … and this also gave access to the executive lounge on the 28th floor.
The room was large, very comfortable had wall-to-ceiling windows and so was nice and light as well as revealing the great vista. The decor was stylish, contemporary and everything you would expect of a hotel of this class.
The bathroom was clad with dark brown tiles with a sparkly gold and red feather effect - that might sound really bling-tastic described here - but it really worked! It had a really attractive, deep, eye-shaped white bath, good toiletries, fluffy white towels, thick warm bathrobe and a full shower as well - which I didn't use as I preferred a good soak in the bath.
There was plenty of space of your own bits, hooks in convenient places to hang towers, etc. (It could have done with a soap dish - if you were using soap in the bath!). There was also a shielded socket for the hair drier right by the mirror.
The bed was really comfortable, high quality cotton sheets and cozy duvet.
I felt relaxed and at home there, and slept really well.
There was a well-stocked mini-bar fridge with enough space to add in your own things – which I always like - and a Lavazza coffee machine which I used every morning!
The desk space was well proportioned – there was even a 13 Amp UK plug socket – plus a whole row of other socket options neatly tucked below a flap running along the wall at the back.
The internet was fast and free, and the business centre on the ground floor, although small, had two machines, a good quality colour laser printer, plus anything else you might need including being accessible any time for printing and other services.
Basically it is really properly geared up to business travelers.
The Club Lounge was pleasant – also with excellent views. It’s a relatively compact but well-designed area – with a good selection of tasty food and drinks throughout the day closing at 9 p.m. When I was there at least didn’t get too overcrowded.
The Horizon bar on the top floor rocked! I only had the change to get up there one evening after finishing work, but the ambience was excellent and I felt relaxed and happy sitting there on my own with the laptop.
I didn't try the breakfast but I'm sure that would have been excellent too, and there is also a pool apparently, but I didn’t see that either or try any of the restaurants. I did have a hasty espresso in the downstairs bar one morning whilst waiting to meet my colleagues .. and that was great as well.
I'll definitely stay there again and would recommend it to anyone visiting Tallinn for business or pleasure.
