Aleksandri Hotel
Ranked #3 of 24 Tartu B&B and Inns
Reviewed 10 May 2011

We went to Tartu in August, with temperatures between 30C and 35C. There was no air conditioning in the room and only one window in the ceiling. Moreover, to open the window more than a small bit, we would have to detach part of the mosquito net (and there were a lot of mosquitos in the area).

The second problem was that the bathroom was tiny and there was no shower curtain. If one of us took a shower, the floor would be wet all around the bathroom. The third issue was noise from a nearby bar/club.

On the positive side, the location was quite good and we did not have any problems dealing with receptionist or other hotel staff. The room was reasonably nice, too.

Due to the lack of air conditioning and mosquitos, this has been our worst hotel experience in recent years. In more reasonable weather, this might be an average budget hotel. In a hot weather, I strongly recommend avoiding it.

Reviewed 20 January 2007

I attended an academic conference at the University of Tartu, and my wife was traveling with me, so we decided to stay at the Aleksandri Guesthouse. The arrangements were all handled very well, and our room was ready when we arrived, even though we came in quite late. All the staff was very helpful, and spoke excellent English. The room was compact but fine except that the shower upstairs was leaking down through the wall, soaking the carpet in part of our room (215). The next day, we were moved to another room (108), but here neither the television nor the phone was working. Also, there is a bar attached to the hotel, and when they close about 1:30 am, the patrons hang out in front (just outside the windows) being loud like drunk people are and listening to car stereos and waiting for taxis. Other evenings, we could hear the thump of the dance music in the bar in our room. If I go to Tartu again, I think I will either pay a bit more for a better hotel in the town centre or save some money and go with a hostel.
