Comfortable rooms and very central location however the reception staff are not helpful at all either through lack of knowledge or just poor experience. Basic breakfast. Staff speak good English. Noise such as people speaking and phones ringing heard easily from room to room.

Centrally located. Former soviet aesthetics. Functional and good size junior suite for affordable price. Breakfast is ok but its a 3 stars so no food service at night and no swimming pool or sauna treats. All in all a convenient choice for short stay in Tartu.

This is an older but nicely maintained hotel, just a block or two from the main square, and an easy walk from the bus station (maybe five blocks). Staff was very friendly and helpful, with suggestions for restaurants, tourist areas, etc. Breakfast was adequate. Really liked the bathtub, and was enthusiastic about the Jacuzzi-style jets after a long day of... More

The room was beautiful and modern, tastefully decorated with a nice view of the park. The bathroom was ugly, but clean and functional. Very comfortable beds. I would give the hotel four stars if it wasn't for the breakfast. The selection wasn't great to begin with, and by 9 am they had run out of most varieties. They were constantly... More

We had to choose Barclay as it was the only hotel in the city center available for our stay - well the only one available accepting dogs.

Great location, interesting interior, but there were some challenges - Internet was not the best one, breakfast table was almost empty half an hour before the closure and electricity was gone from the bathroom in the morning and did not return...:)

Very nice place for staying in business. Everything is near, polite and skilled staff. Town hall and main square are 50 metres away. Breakfast is OK, tasty. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Lots of pubs near by.

About a block from the old square. The beds are comfortable. Everything is clean. It is mostly quiet. We were there during Midsummer's Eve and were some of the only guests. Breakfast is basic and the same very day, but still has many choices. The wifi did not work in our rooms, but we had good reception in the comfortable,... More
