The hotel is built in the old houses from 14th century which means that all the rooms are different and there are a lot stairs to get to the rooms. This is not a place for disabled. But for the rest, Cru offers renovated rooms in old surroundings. The location is also great for walking around the old town. In...

A warm and cozy hotel in the old town of Tallinn. The location is excellent with most things within walking distance. The room was warm and spacious. Staff were friendly and super helpful. There is a restaurant on the front which we missed out on for dinner but served delicious breakfast. Breakfast is served till 11am too which meant lazy...

Lovely small hotel with character that matches the old town, visited in January so nice and quiet. Staff friendly and accommodating. Breakfast good. The only thing missing was tea and coffee making facilities in the room. Would recommend however.

CRU Hotel offered me a beautiful room with great complementary breakfast, it is right in the middle of old town, so it is closed to lots of local attractions. Great service, great room, great staff, it is just awesome.

I absolutely loved Hotel Cru when I visited in October! I would definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting Tallinn. The hotel is in the heart of historic Tallinn.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Late Medieval architecture in one of the oldest houses in Tallinn together with first-class service and possibilities create a unique atmosphere which connects with the environment surrounding the hotel. When renovating the house we respected both the initial architecture and the strict national heritage protection requirements that ensure that both the location and design of the hotel rooms is as loyal to the original concept of the house as possible. In 1997 Tallinn Old Town was included in the UNESCO World Heritage list and that can be regarded as the highest international acknowledgement to any historic town! In addition to a usual lodging experience we offer you an exclusive luxurious boutique-type experience, deriving from the unique design of the hotel building and its medieval legacy. Since all the rooms are unique and different from each other, the visitors may choose the intimacy or luxury of their preferred environment. Our breakfast is made of self-made or farm-grown fresh high-quality ingredients that are not so easily, if at all, found in shops. Natural and fresh breakfast is a unique experience that lights up the whole day! On the lower storey of Hotel Cru you will find a cosy and highly regarded restaurant of the same name. Hotel guests enjoy 10% off all items on the restaurant menu. Dmitri Haljukov, the head chef of the restaurant Cru, represented Estonia in the chef olympics final Bocuse d'Or in Lyon 2015. CRU Hotel is a good choice for both - leisure and business trips! ... more   less
