Good sides to pick this hotel: excellent location close to the heart of old town, good view from window, Breakfast basic, but tasty. Bad side: it was cold inside, because wind from closed window was worth to mention. Summary: average and basic accommodation in the beautiful old town of Tallinn.

I find paying at arrival fully ok. But at our arrival to the hotel something in Swedbank's service was down and the hotel's Swebank card reader did not accept credit cards.. We proposed to pay when the service is up again but were told that we have to pay before we can get our room keys. Luckily we had enough...

Was a little bit disappointment - great location in Old city, but not so much old atmosphere inside. I had 50% disscount, so it was ok, but for full price it's not worth it. Breakfast was good, but poor and there wasn't good service.

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...

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.

Thank Mats S
