Stayed here for 2 nights. Location is a ideal and only a few mins from Old Town. This is a very simple budget hotel. The rooms are non smoking but it was evident someone had smoked in the room we stayed in! The room was also on the road side , so some traffic noise. I would request a room... More

The room had everything you need. TV,decent sized bed and decent enough toilet & shower. But the slats under the bed kept coming loose & the toilet had a strange smell which was present from first booking in. You had to pay extra if you wanted fresh towels or you're room cleaned which is unusual been all over the world... More

Very helpful directions and the bus stops too and from the main bus station and train station are close by, as is the bus out of town to the Outdoor Museum. Clean room, basic, but if you are just using it as a base to explore Tallinn, it's fine. There is a lounge downstairs with free coffee and tea, so... More

The Good: Location is excellent and just a hop from Old Town. Three excellent restaurants at the foot of the hill up to it. Room clean, and well kitted out. Big lounge with coffee/tea facilities (but on the last day someone took the machine into their room so we went without) The Bad: We were in room 15, on a... More

Great location, close to the old city. Check in staff excellent English and very helpful. The room was fine, maybe a little small for 3 people, and our room was on the side of the main road, so it was a little noisy. Excellent breakfast

We traveled on a romantic trip, which included a wealth of culture and history of Tallinn. Everything was in place except for a small, cramped hotel room.

Spent there one night on the way to the Estonian country side, the room was good though at the ground level the noise of cars could be heard. The location is excellent as it is a short walk to the old town. It is the annex of a more luxurious hotel next door.

“The hotel is on a busy street, but if you ask for a room on the quiet side you will have smokers outside your window smoking throughout the day and night. So not sure what a good room would be.”
