“Awesome Hotel”
Reviewed 22 August 2009

If you can afford to stay here then do. Its about a five minute cab ride from the port and a five minute walk to old town. The staff was super friendly and helpful. The room was one of the best that I have stayed in. The breakfast is also one of the best in Europe. Madonna's tour people stayed in the hotel at the same time we did. The views from the room are great. If you can stay here than do so...you wont regret it.

Great views, great staff. Everything worked just fine. Beautiful big rooms with huge beds and a bathroom with a fancy rain shower. Nice and quiet pool and saunas with a city view. And the best thing? It costs under 100 euros..!

We stayed at the Swissotel Tallinn for 4 nights in July. It's the first time we've stayed at a Swissotel and we'd definitely use this hotel chain again. The hotel was spotlessly clean and very stylish in design.
We had a corner room on the 14th floor which had floor to ceiling windows on 2 sides with excellent views across to the port and out towards the airport. The room was well appointed and the bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was beautifully decorated with small mosaic tiles in shades of copper and dark brown.
We had buffet breakfast in Cafe Swiss each morning and it was delicious; the choice of hot and cold food was very good and the quality couldn't be faulted. We also had a cocktail in the bar on the 30th floor one evening.
We used the pool, sauna and steam room a few times during our stay, although the pool was pretty cold for our British tastes! The whole spa area was again very clean and very stylishly decorated. It was also interesting to have such a great view of the city from the sauna!
The hotel is in a good location, less than 10 minutes by taxi from the airport and the ferry port (the taxi fare from each of these places to the hotel was equivalent to about €4). It is also roughly a 10 minute walk through the pleasant shopping area to Tallinn Old Town.
The Old Town was beautiful and had plenty of character. We would defintely recommend Olde Hansa restaurant just off the Town Hall Square for a delicious medieval style meal and Hell Hunt bar for drinks.
We also had a day trip to Helsinki with the Viking Line ferry company. The ferry was modern and comfortable and took 2.5 hours to cross the Gulf of Finland. Helsinki was a lovely place although extemely expensive. While we were there we also spent time at the former sea fortress of Suomenlinna, which is also well worth a visit.
We would definitely recommend the Swissotel for a stay in Tallinn and also a day trip to Helsinki time permitting.

Stayed here for 4 nights to celebrate my husband's birthday. We got a fantastic deal at 85 pounds per night for an executive room on the 29th floor with access to the executive lounge. The room was spacious with a good view towards the edge of the old town. Unfortunately it was overcast for the duration of our stay so the pics aren't great. The bathroom was lovely, tub deep and inviting, heated floor very comforting and the toiletries were good. The shower was large enough for two but we weren't too keen on the rain shower head, preferring a power shower.

The executive lounge was nice, open for lunch from 12-2 and dinner from 6-9 I think. Food was nice with daily soup and bread and a selection of salads and pates. There was a choice of 2 meat dishes and one veggie, with veg and potato sides and a selection of desserts. Drinks consisted of bottled spirits and red wine which were set out so you could help yourself and bottles of mixers, beers and white wine were available from the fridges. My only grumble was the repetitive muzak cd which was played on loop all day and night. The lounge was shut on Sundays when vouchers were given for the hotel bar and the Cafe Swiss restaurant on the 6th floor. Neither myself nor my husband particularly enjoyed our meals in the Cafe Swiss, believing that the chefs had chosen style over substance as the taste did not match the presentation. Breakfast in the Cafe Swiss was excellent though and a chef was on hand to cook eggs and omelettes to order.

Staff were friendly and helpful, however could not tell us of any bars open on a Sunday night - we went out for a walk thinking everything might be shut in Feb but managed to find two late night bars, neither of which I would recommend as both seemed a bit dodgy. On the last night, I sat on the bed and it seemed to sink under me. I lifted the mattress to see that several of the slats were not in place and had fallen down. I reported this to the lounge assistant and I was promised it would be repaired. On returning to our room hours later, the bed had been made but it has not been fixed, however I managed to sleep in it and reported it again when we checked out.

The location of the hotel is good, on a straight road from the airport which can clearly be seen from the west facing rooms. I would stay here again although I got bad vertigo even whilst lying down, obviously the high life is not for me!

From our 23 rd floor suite panoramic view of harbour . the sea and the sky,very nice.The rooms are spacious , modern with superb bathrooms and a small kitchen.Only problem was the airco.It is computer controlled and can only be set from 22 C. to 24.C, too hot to sleep under a duvet. There is a fine spa ,sauna and swimming pool, great massages.
Executive level includes light lunch, cocktails make them yourself and canapes or light evening repas.Staff are friendly ,helpfull .Great location nextdoor to Stockman store a sort of Selfridges.

It is not cheap but provide excellent value for money. Well designed, quiet and comfortable rooms. Mine had full length windows facing the harbour, and I could have sat there the whole day having a bottle of wine. A little out from the old city but it is a nice 15 minute walk. Stockman departmental store is conveniently located next door where you could get drinks, food and laundry done at cheaper rates than the hotel. Highly recommended if you visit Tallin and want a little pampering.

We stayed in Swissotel Tallinn May 15th to 16th, 2009. When we arrived the reception staff was most helpful. We were attended by this young lady who spoke fluent English, she also filled those registration cards for us (minus our home address and signature, of course).
We had pre paid the room so there were no delays in getting to our room at the 23nd(!!!) floor. They didn't mention that you need to put your key-card at the slot in the elevator in order to get to the rooms, but we figured it out..
The room was a standard-room but it was huge and the bathroom so beautiful. But most overwhelming was the view over the city.
The double-bed was so big that you coul easily have three people sleeping in it!!
Once we were at the hallway checking out of the "other views" from diffrent sides of the city and locked ourselves out of the room. Fortunately there was a telephone in the hall by the elevators so I called to the front desk if somebody could come to our rescue, and they did..smiling a little..
Overall very very nice hotel. Über-helpful staff. Delicious breakfast. And there is also that lovely swimming pool etc. Wish we could have stayed a bit longer!
