St Olav Hotel
Ranked #76 of 86 Hotels in Tallinn
Reviewed 21 May 2011

St. Olav is a nice place in an excellent location. They put us however, in a room right beside an outdoor atrium-like party room, where a wedding was held. The noise and your typical wedding tunes went on until well after midnight. At 7:15 the following morning, staff started the clean-up, which seemed like a solid half-hour of banging beer bottles against one another. A very decent buffet breakfast is included and the place does have an element of classiness.

Room Tip: Stay away from the atrium-like party room.

Was looking forward to my visit to this hotel as I had already read some of the reviews, but I found the hotel very noisy especially after asking for a quiet room and the service from some of the staff was poor especially if they found out you were british you were non existing to them and don't bother handing in postcards to reception as they do not arrive to the people you send them to

Stayed here with my partner over Easter 2011, I must say on arrival Andrei the porter was very helpful in carrying our bags to the fourth floor. It is a very old building and as a young couple there was no problem in traipsing up four flights of narrow stairs, but if not very active or have trouble climbing stairs I would request a room lower down. The room was very comfortable and surprisingly warm at all times temp outside was around 10-15 celsius during day and dropped to around 5 celsius at night I was warm all the time and opened the window during the day every day! Bed very comfortable although only one small pillow, shower/ toilet very clean and in general a nice cosy room not too small just enough space for everything in my opinion. Breakfast was superb large selection of hot and cold dishes, meat,fish,potato,salad,bread,cereals I couldn't of asked for anything more very impressed. Young lady on reception very helpful, managed to organise tickets for the ferry to Helsinki for us, Staff in general do not always look too interested but were always helpful with anything needed so no complaints there! Location superb right in the heart of the old town, occasional noise at night but I am a very light sleeper and didn't wake up at all so not really an issue. Overall this hotel comes highly recommended, Its clean, comfortable, ideally located, and not expensive. If I were to visit the beautiful city of Tallinn again I would not hesitate to book here again.

This hotel is very very good value and typically Estonian! Brilliant location in the Old Town steps away from the main square! For the money it's a brilliant hotel!

Pros:
Friendly English speaking Reception staff, reasonably priced room (I used a coupon from Hotels.com) with underfloor heating in en suite bathroom!, well located in Old Town with short walk to Main Square, excellent choice at breakfast with selection of hot and cold food plus plenty table space, really cool basement bar (great cocktails!). NB: If in a large group email hotel to arrange pickup from airport (30 EUR return total cost for 6 people). 

Cons:
Squeaky room and corridor floors so top floor room essential, no cupboards for storage (although threre is drawer storage), don't have a room facing the lobby due to noise from guests waiting for friends, some friends complained of the occasional smell of drains.

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
