Loved the lication. Room was small ,but adequate. Worked out great except house cleaning did nit replace toilet paper. Requested it twice. First time front desk said would take care of it. They didn't. Requested later same day and we were told that housekeeping was gone.No staff could authorize toilet paper.She seemed quite unconcerned about it. Breakfast was fine and...

Great location in the Old Town near Fat Margaret tower. Not spacious, but nice and quiet room, comfort bed, clean towels. We liked it! Poor breakfast with very little variety. Small room, but it was enough for us.

Unfortunately, our room smelled like vomit. Nothing was done about this. My husband's medication was stolen from the room on the first day. Other than that, we enjoyed the breakfast and the staff was friendly. They were happy to call a cab or direct us to train and bus stations. The location was superb and it was very easy to...

The hotel itself looks very romantic. The location is perfect - right in the old town. The room is small, but cozy. There was a lot of choice offered in breakfast, and it was very good! The staff, however, is not that friendly. I would recommend this hotel for a low-cost stay for young couples!

This hotel was selected by a travel agency for our group. I would stay there again unless something clearly better were available for less. The hotel is just inside the Tallinn Old Town not far from the entry gate at the Fat Margaret Tower. It is within a reasonable walking distance from the harbor if you do not want to...

The breakfast was such a disgrace that I can't give this hotel more than two stars. Here are my experiences. Room - Very small but sufficient - Narrow beds but with nice and clean bedsheets, I slept soundly - Very slow wi-fi in the room, but it worked part of the time - Tiny shower with no shampoo (just soap...

This hotel was incredibly nice. Staff was ok, the room was small but cozy, nice bathroom, everything was perfectly cleaned. Beds were comfortable, the ratio quality/price was actually really good. The position was super nice, on the top of the Old Town, less than 5 minutes of walk to the Center, close enough to the port to take the ferry....

The only good thing about this place is its location. Otherwise, it feels like a place where one might have to check for fleas upon departure. Breakfast was cold, the room was small, the bed was uncomfortable, the bathroom smelled of sewage, and some of (not all) the front desk staff were downright rude. I say not all because the...

At first entrance to the hotel, i was not sure that it was in fact a hotel. Got directions on how to get to the room from the front desk lady, with a smile and a wish of good luck getting there! That was new for me. Room was seriously hard to get to, but was an adventure really.

The hotel was in a great location, within the Old Town of Tallinn. The hotel interior and exterior is absolutely beautiful-built into the city wall. Our room was very tiny but had everything we needed. Very affordable and really good customer service.
