Clean basic hotel, good breakfast choice for a hotel of this rating Had to refuse the first two rooms as they was tiny But they was quiet happy to do that A pleasant stay Can't understand when you have a double bed they give you two small duvets

Excellent location to stay and see Tallinn old town. I had a single room which was small but clean and comfortable and cleaned every day. Nice new bathroom as well. The room faced the back and a busy road but noise was not an issue for me. The breakfast was not great but acceptable. Staff were friendly. The hotel is... More

The hotel is a perfectly fine budget hotel. The staff could rendered better service and be more accommodating. The breakfast was nothing to brag about. Otherwise, the hotel is centrally located in the old town, the beds were good to sleep in and the rooms were quite good for the price.

Our room was very warm, but probably a bit too small for 3 people. Absolutely charming interior with stone walls and many paintings. The staff is quite kind and polite, but I got the feeling that they're not really in the mood to work. Quite standard breakfast, you will have enough to choose from. The hotel is quiet and the...

Nice place next the town wall of medieval Tallinn. Great location, close to the railway station. The bed´s softness was just right for me :) Personal was friendly and helpful. The only strange thing was asking to give my credit card into the reception as a warrant!???? I refused :)

This hotel was fine for our purposes. The building is ancient. On the top floor we had an unusual high window and slanted ceiling. But it was comfortable and clean and roomy enough. I can imagine in hot weather it could be a problem. There was an electric fan which we certainly didn't need with cool weather. Smallest elevator ever!

When we checked in we were greeted (maybe an exaggeration) by a rather miserable young guy at reception. I had specifically requested a quiet room but we were given room 305 - backing on to a busy and noisy main road. A single hobbit would have been claustrophobic in that room. You could have "swung a cat" in it but... More

My husband and I went to the Baltic pearl for some days of vacation. It's not the first time and definitely not the last time we will go to Tallinn, but we will not stay at this hotel again, at all.

Great location in Old Town but very disappointed with the hotel room. It was tiny, hot and very noisy, being (as we discovered) on a very busy main road at the back. We asked for a quieter room with a double bed and got a smaller, twin room on the 3rd floor. Not quite what we expected! Desk staff quite... More

Very nice hotel at 5 minutes walking from the old town's main square. Tiny but cosy rooms with very small bathroom. Breakfast could be improved with continental ingredients (no croissants or cakes available). Wi-FI works perfectly. Efficient and very kind staff people.
