I recently spent 2 nights here, in room 711 on floor 6. This was ones of the rooms with its own sauna, and heck, it was amazing!
The hotel was an easy short walk from where the airport bus drops you off, and I found the check-in staff welcoming and helpful. I went up to my room and found it was pretty big - all the usual things (bed, desk, tv, phone, free internet, room service menus etc). The bathroom was also pretty substantial and at the end of it was a built-in sauna. The sauna was great - it heated up quickly and you had a nice medieval style bucket and ladle to tip water over the hot stones to create the steam. I also found that none of the heat from the sauna found its way into the room, which was handy.
Although the room did not have air-con, I did not find it at all hot or uncomfortable at any time of the day. Also, the room was on a smoking floor and I did not find there was any smell of smoke (which was just as well as I am not a smoker).
Hotel's location was great - just a 5 minute walk to the old town, and likewise to the ferry ports (10 minutes to the Lindaline port which was hidden away a bit further from the other ferry lines).
Breakfast was the usual continental selection - perfectly adequate choice of hot and cold bits and some really nice jams. Not really sure what people are complaining about - everyone was tucking in qiute happily when I was there.
As for the bar, I didn't hear any noise from here at any point. And to those complaining that people were singing in Estonian, well, duh, this IS Estonia. I think it's great to hear the local languages and dip into the culture - if I wanted to hear English everywhere I'd stay at home. Besides, it's fun to try and learn a bit of the language - a good way to make new friends!
I'd definitely stay here next time I visit...
