Reviewed 28 April 2011

We were in New Year holidays. Quick check-in and check-out. Laggage store is absent. Good breakfast. Perfect location. Clean, comfortable room near reception, but jacuzzi wasn't working =)) we used bath and shower. It wasn't a problem
There was a computer with Internet in a hall near our room and it was free wi-fi in a room
I recommend to visit St.Olav

a very picturesque hotel full of old-Europe atmosphere, matching the general old-town Tallinn atmosphere very well.located within the old town
The hotel is very conveniently
The room was clean and comfortable, breakfast good, rates very reasonable.
Too bad the room safe didn't work, and - as seems the rule in Tallinn, no coffee/tea making facilities in the room.

all in all a very pleasant and also a unique experience

Had an economy room which was small but nice and with a decent sized bathroom. Had specifically booked a double, rather than twin room but got twin beds nonetheless. No big problem though, as we just pushed the beds together.

Breakfast wasn't anything special but it did the job. Staff was very helpful. We could store our luggage during the day after checking out and they called us a taxi when we came back to pick it up.

Over all, it's not what I would classify as a 4 star hotel (most hotel sites do) but for the £32 per night we paid for a room in the centre of the Old Town, I feel we got great value for money and I wouldn't hesitate to book there again.

This hotel was unique, it was similar to a museum with high quality furnishings and nice details. I booked one of the "Cozy" rooms so I knew it would be small but it was actually ok! My room was very well equipped with lcd tv and mini bar and tastefully decorated. The only downside it didnt have a window and good get very hot. Sometimes couldnt sleep due my room door being on the main lobby from the sound of the other residents but that couldnt be helped. Overall great hotel, good breakfast, fast internet and friendly staff

We arrived for our 2nd stay at the St Olav (see last review). On arrival we were told there had been a flood in our rooms and we had to go to the St Olevi (?) instead, which was not as nice as the St Olav. While we were being told this a huge group of German tourists turned up, checked in and were being shown to their rooms. Our colleague who arrived the next day checked into the St Olav without any problems or mention of the flood. We all strongly suspect that there was no flood and that they had just overbooked with the German bus tour and bumped us out into the lesser St Olevi.

Stayed first week of April. Lovely hotel, recently renovated so up to date bathroom and decorations. Room a bit small, but we got really cheap rate from Hotel Pronto so no complaints about that. Didn't find it at all noisy (3rd floor). As stated before, excellent breakfast and really central - very close to main square. Lovely antique furniture and chandaliers scattered about the corridors and dining room. Wireless internet in all rooms.

We stayed in this hotel at the end of March and absolutely loved it!

Pros:
Location- center to the city
Helpful staff- multiple languages
Full breakfast (sausages, roasted veggies, potatoes, 2 types of eggs, pickled things, salads, yogurt and deserts)
Unique hotel feel- boutique style-old time charm while still clean and modern
Controls for heat and bathroom floor
Relaxation room and courtyard
Quality bar on hotel premises
VERY safe

Cons:
Thin walls- didnt disturb us much, but if someone is a light sleeper, I would recommend ear plugs
