“Good base for Tallinn”
Reviewed 12 June 2013

Good value, serviceable hotel with clean and reasonably spacious rooms. I was slightly worried that the karaoke bar would mean noise and revelry, but saw no sign of it and found the hotel to be calm and quiet. It's in a good location for accessing the old town without being part of it - just a short walk away. It's also close to the airport bus stop and only a few minutes walk to the ferries for Helsinki. Breakfasts were fine, and there is a bar which also serves food - though I must admit that the it's the first time I've ever had a club sandwich containing a beefburger!

We stayed in the Metropole for 2 nights. It was a good sized room and the curtains were adequate for keeping out the light from the long May days in Estonia.
It is in a great location for wandering around the old Town without the hassle of staying in the old town. There restaurants and supermarkets within a couple of minutes walk and it is in a gentrifying and interesting section of Tallinn.
The hotel seemed very popular with tour groups and , as a result, breakfasts were a little difficult to deal with. Finding a table was a hassle on both mornings.
Desk staff spoke good English and were helpful.
Two things were a little irritating. There was no safe in the rooms and storage of passports and other valuables had to be done at the desk and there was a surcharge of 3.5 euros a day for this service. The other was the floor of the bathroom. This was heated and this made the bathroom overly warm and humid.
I would return to this hotel.

Room Tip: Some rooms have better views than others. Check first before signing in.

This hotel is 5 minutes walk from the Old Town. The rooms are large and I was fortunate to get a room with its own sauna in the bathroom. The breakfast is good with plenty of choice. The hotel staff are helpful and friendly and I was sorry that I only stayed here one night.

I spend two days in this hotel after arriving by ferry from Helsinki. With a walking distance to the city center, the old town, the ferry terminal, the hotel location is perfect for getting around to know Tallinn. The room was spacious and calm. Toilets OK, a bit small but with all what is needed and clean. Breakfast was good and big enough. Will definitively recommend it!

We visited hotel Metropol with our little family on 24th of May (just one Friday night). My husband checked in with our little 5 month old daughter and told me later that everybody were very kind and helpful. The room was spacious and clean and the bed was very comfortable. The curtains made the room exactly as dark as needed when You want Your baby to fall asleep.
So everything seemed to be perfect until the party started in the karaoke bar two floors beneath us. And it lasted until 3 am. After that most of the karaoke "stars" thought that they should keep on singing outside and in front of the hotel (under our window). We did have loud "neighbours" as well - they came into their rooms after the karaoke bar was closed and we heard everythig they talked and laughed about until 5 am (the noise from rooms beside you comes through the ventilation system). Because of that, unfortunately, we didn`t get to sleep much that night. In case it would have been only me and my husband, we would have asked for another room, but it would have been too much to move all our things, baby`s bed and the baby in the middle of the night...
So this was our only disapointment (the location of our room), because we had informed the hotel a week prior arrival that we are coming with our baby and we would have appreciated if they`d given us a "quiet" room.
Nevertheless we recommend hotel Metropol! And in case You`d like to sleep in a quiet room, ask a room as far as the karaoke bar as possible.

Room Tip: Ask for a room as far from the karaoke bar as possible!!!

Nice Hotel. Arrived from the Helsinki - Tallinn ferry. Made to feel very welcome by good staff. Room very large and on 5th floor - perhaps the decor was a little 'dated'. Good views across Tallinn. The food, however, was really excellent both for dinner and breakfast. Can recommend this Hotel.
