Reviewed 29 December 2013

We had a de-lux room with jaguzzi and sauna, and the candles, sparcling wine and roses completed the romantic and a bit special athmosphere in our beautiful room.
So if you're looking for some luxury with a reasonable price go for de-lux in Hotel Bern!

The hotel is located ideally for the old town. The rooms are fine but nothing special.

On the plus side, the service was good, it was quiet, the bed was comfortable, the shower was good and breakfast was fine.

However, the windows in the room didn't open and it was very hot even when the radiator was turned off. Although there was an air conditioning unit, it wasn't easy to control and didn't seem to have much effect on the temperature. There were no facilities for making a drink in the room and a lack of hooks for hanging coats and bathrobes.

This hotel has a very good location, in the middle of Tallinn old town. Some notes:
* good breakfast (even for me as vegetarian)
* small rooms, but no problem if you just use them for sleeping + toilet/shower
* quiet environment, but some noise carry between the rooms

My sister and I stayed at Hotel Bern for three nights in December to visit the Christmas Market. Our stay at this hotel was excellent on many aspects. The room was quiet and comfortable; the location was ideal for visiting the old town and very close to the city centre and the staff were friendly and helpful.

On checking in the receptionist was very helpful and cheery and spoke excellent English. We were given room 317 which is on the top floor and furthest away from the beer hall. Our room was facing a private car park and was extremely quiet. If you want a peaceful stay, request this room or one of the odd number rooms on this floor. I requested a quiet room when I booked our stay about 3 months prior and was very pleased that they accommodated my request so fully.

The room itself was nice and warm. The beds were comfortable despite not having duvets. The bathroom is good too, but I have to admit I'm not the biggest fan of the wet room design. It's not a big deal though as the provide you with slippers. They don't provide many toiletries though so bring your own. They only provided a combined shampoo/shower gel. The TV was decent too; there was a number of English, German, French and Russian language channels so you're bound to find something the watch.

The breakfast buffets were excellent. While the breakfast options didn't change hugely while we were there, there is a lot of variety and it gets replenished often. They have a small hot food selection which included porridge, scrambled eggs and sausages and frikadelle (it was one or the other). The cold foods on offer are excellent with smoked salmon, herring, cold meats, cheese, fruit, small pastries and croissants, dried fruits and jams, breads and yogurts. There is plenty of drink options too with a few juices, milk and teas and coffee. We ate a hearty breakfast each morning and it really set us up for the day.

I'd definitely recommend Hotel Bern to anyone looking for a reasonably priced hotel in a good location. Like others have mentioned, it's opposite Rimi supermarket where you can pick up cheap souvenirs. It's also easy to get to from the airport. Take the number 2 bus from the airport and it's about a 20 minute journey to A Laikmaa. From there it's a short walk to the hotel.

Hotel location is ideal for every touristic need: it is really close to old town and shopping centers, there is Rimi supermarket in the opposite building and it takes 5 minutes by taxi to railway station.
And in the same time the street is very quiet.
Staff is very nice!

Ideal location, 10 minute taxi ride to/from the airport and for access to the old town it is less than a 5 minute walk.

The room was compact, as was the bathroom, simple/well finished and very clean.

Buffet style breakfast with a good selection.

Staff were very helpful, all spoke English and couldn't do enough for you.

Noise mentioned in some feedback was not an issue on our stay, there is a bar and hostel adjacent to the hotel.
