“Great location”
Reviewed 2 August 2013

In the center of old city.
No elevator. Do not come with a lot of luggage!
Steps are very steep.
Very very hot room.Has floor heating in the bathroom all year...Even in the summer when not needed.
After complaining about the hot room,we received another fan.It was still not enough.
There are 3 small windows that don't help much when opened.
Service was good and helpful.

We did spend two nights on hotel. The reservation was made via Eckerö Lines and on voucher we had standard room with double bed. When we arrived the first given room was very small economy room on third floor with two different beds- so we climbed back from the third floor back to reception to change the room. A new room was quite much like it was written in the voucher, still quite small. There was no air condition so the window was open all night long. Breakfast was littlebit below avarage and same with the service attitude of staff. So smile was quite hard get from them..Historic style is quite nice in hotel, but overall it is not worth for 4 stars. Still the location is ok.

Room Tip: Higher floor is probably quite hot on summer- no air condition on rooms

Me and my wife stayed here in October.
Our room was small but it was perfect for our needs.

It was comfy and had a nice bathroom and was very clean.

We were on the top floor, which was up quite a few steep stairs but it wasn't a problem.
The staff were formal but helpful.

the location was excellent, it was just a 1 minute walk from the centre of the old town.

I would have no hesitation staying here again when visiting Tallinn.

We stayed a week in Tallinn and we were not satisfied with the hotel. Our room smelled very bad and we had to sleep with open windows. I guess there simply was fungus in the building. The beds were awfull to lie in and the breakfast was average. Only very good thing to say about the hotel is the location central in the old city.

We stayed with the family (two adults and two teenagers) for one night in July. We booked by Eckerö Lines, together with ferry tickets from Helsinki. The hotel is in the heart of Old Town, reasonable walking distance from the ferry terminal.

Our two rooms were already available at noon. Both rooms were huge! And the bathrooms were even bigger! I expect we were upgraded for one reason or another, as we booked standard rooms. Other one of the rooms had even fully equipped kitchen. In any case, this was way beyond our expectations.

The service was kind and good, breakfast ok, and no complaints at all. Definately will come again if coming to Tallin again.

After we had had reserved our rooms we read a few reviews of this hotel where it was warned, that they overbook. And that was just what happened to us although we also mailed and called the hotel in advance in order to be sure that the booking was ok. And they said it is. However, when we arrived to the hotel they said that there is an overbooking and we must move to another hotel. They offered us a hotel (St Olav Apartments) nearby which obviously belongs to the same company. They also offered our budget price room to be changed to a standard category room. And we accepted. I am happy that we did not see the budget room because even the quality of the standard room was poor. The room was down in the basement far far away from the reception. It was small and the air condition was lousy. The walls were made of paper and hence there was no noise isolation. Also the service was unsmiling.

Room Tip: I´d rather not reserve a room from this hotel since quite a number of the rooms do not have windows...

No wardrobes or drawers for your clothes, 6 hangars!!! Receptionists have faces like a slapped ..... Getting information is like pulling teeth.
Clean, very central. But would NOT choose this hotel again.
Terrible stairs to climb with no lifts.
One of the worst budget hotels I've been in.
