Wonderful location tucked away on a charming street near the puppet theatre and history museum. The staff were charming and helpful. The hotel was busy but the breakfast buffet was well stocked and staff were quick to refresh the coffee when it ran out. Particularly enjoyed the water with berry leaves, fruit and lemons. The atmosphere in the dining room is light and airy and the balcony overlooking the old cobbled street is perfect for anyone wanting to waive down at their adoring fans.
The room was clean and well appointed but the appliances perhaps need to be replaced as both the fridge and the safe were not working. Fortunately, the thoughtfully provided electric fan was working because Tallinn was experiencing a heat wave and the wonderful, atmospheric building of the hotel does not come with mod cons such as air conditioning.
Worst gripe was the karaoke bar in the basement which is open until 5am most nights. We asked to be moved upon spotting this potential disturbance to our sleep but, unfortunately, the hotel was already full. Singing was a truly terrible mix of Russian pop and euro trash which reverberated through the floor boards. If it was not for being exhausted the cacophony would have meant no sleep until sunrise. If you do book this hotel and want to sleep between midnight and 5 am insist on a room a couple of floors up (or stay on a Sunday night when the karaoke finishes at midnight).
Overall good value for money. If you have a small hours karaoke habit perhaps this is the place for you.
