“Nice Location For An Affordable Price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 October 2010

The hotel was clean and the front desk gave really good service. The location of the hotel is easy walking distance from the ferry terminals and pretty much right on top of old town. The only downside was we had noisy guests across the hall from us which made it hard to sleep. The breakfast was really good.

Dear Sir or Madam,
I would like to take this opportunity to first of all thank you for your positive comments and to express our disappointment that our other noisy guests disturbed your good night sleep. We are hoping to host you again on your next trip to Tallinn and let us confirm that on your next visit, we will make our best to accommodate you at the end of the corridor so you would not hear any noise from your neighbors.
With our warmest regards,
Hotel Bern

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 September 2010

A very convenient hotel: situated just outside the Old Town wall - walk across the parking lot opposite the hotel and you are a few meters from Catharine's Passage and all the great restaurants on Vene Street.

The staff is very friendly and cheerful and the breakfast is sumptous. We had a room on the street side - was a bit noisy when there was some hustle and bustle on the street. The bathroom was small but served the purpose. High end sanitary ware and very pleasant toiletries.

The room was always clean.

The few rooms meant that there was no crowd in the lobby or at the breakfast table.

The hotel is also convenient for longer stays on budget because there is a Rimi across the street. The hotel is also conveniently located to get to the trams on the main street. And just by chance we found an open air market as well.

Modern rooms, nice personnel. Free Wifi. Breakfast was good. However, the price was quite high compared to the level of the hotel. A gentlemens' club is right next door. The location is thus not very nice but you walk quickly to the old town. One parking place is on the lot and we could use it for free. So it's a matter of luck if you get it or not.

The hotel is located in old town just outside the old city wall, but you can easily walk to the old and new city center from the hotel.

The staff is very friendly and helpful which makes the good feeling when entering the hotel. The standard room is not very large, but there is enough space for one or two night's stay. A nice extra is the bathrobe in the room. Rooms felt very quiet.

The breakfast was a little disappointment being a little poor and served in a tight corner of the breakfast room.

If you want to have a comfortable short stay this is a good choice and certainly much better than the big hotels in the new center. Gentlemen's club just in neighbour do not disturb too much either.

We stayed here for a long weekend last year and had a lovely break. The hotel staff were incredibly helpful, the location was just a five minute walk from old town and the prices were very reasonable.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2010

LOCATION:
5-minute walk to the Old Town. Opposite the hotel is Rimi supermarket.

ROOMS:
Before we booked with Bern Hotel, we read reviews in Tripadvisor. Luckily, one of the reviewers advised to try and get a room that did not face the courtyard. The reason for this is the fact that there is a 'Gentlemens Club' in the courtyard and has the potential of being noisy. We followed the advise and we were given the room on the top floor at the back of the hotel and it was very quiet.

Our room was cleaned everyday. My only minor feedback is that there was no kettle provided in the room.

WI-FI:
High-speed wi-fi internet in the entire 9 days we stayed at the hotel. One morning the network was performing slow and kept dropping, we informed reception and in about an hour, it was back to its high-speed connection. For people without their own laptop, the hotel has a library/conference room that allows guests to use the Internet for free. Printing is also free of charge.

SERVICE:
The staff were professionally friendly and very, very helpful.

FOOD:
Buffet breakfast was included in our room rate. Breakfast included:cooked eggs, sausages, raw salmon, cheeses, ham, yoghurt, cereal, fresh fruit, 3 types of bread, many kinds of juices, tea, muffins

EXTRAS:
I only discovered about the hotel's so-called library two days before our departure. But I still got to use the library/meeting room for the days when I wanted to work peacefully and not in my room. The library also has classic and modern books to read for guests.

Bern Hotel a very good value hotel in the center of Tallinn. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

I appreciated mostly the courtesy of reception personnel, at my disposal to give me info about the site and to help me in complete some internet transactions. The site is very quiet and close (very important) to downtown. in short, a hotel to recommend to friends.
