On our recent trip to Tallinn we booked the Hotel Palace.
Location: The location was great with access to public transport and walking distance to the Old Town.
Staff: On our arrival the staff at the reception were friendly and during our stay they were very helpful with directions providing us maps and explanations.
Room: We booked a standard room for 2 adults and a child. An extra cot was provided for our daughter without us requesting for it, which I thought was thoughtful and sensible. The room however was quite small, but this could be the norm for standard rooms in Tallinn. Even though the room was quite small it was very cosy. The standard room does not come with a bathtub which is probably a norm in Tallinn as well. Great quality bedding that helped us sleep soundly.
Other facilities: We compensated the absence of a bathtub by purchasing entry to the pool and relaxation area which was extremely nice and totally worth it. It was 10 euros per person for a 24 hour duration. This facility comes free with superior rooms and above. This has a small pool, a Jacuzzi, and two saunas, one dry and one steam. Robes are provided in the room, they even had a children's robe for our daughter and that was really thoughtful. Towels can be used in the pool area so you don't have to carry anything from your room. Locker rooms are available in the changing area. For my daughter the pool area was the highlight of the trip and her stay in Tallinn.
Breakfast: This was included in our room price and it was quite a large spread, but it does get tiring when you're eating the same thing for five days in a row. However, it was top quality breakfast.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- THE BEST MEETING PLACE IN TOWN Hotel Palace, located next to Freedom Square in Tallinn reopened in July 2014 after a total makeover. The Hotel dates back to 1937 and represents one of the most interesting, glamorous and majestic Hotel buildings in Estonia. This business class hotel with 79 rooms has throughout its history been a true business card of Estonia. The corner stone of the building,located only a step away from the most representative square of the town, was finished in 1937,during the pre-war high period of the Republic of Estonia. Architect Elmar Lohk designed one of the most glamorous buildings in Tallinn and its majestic atmosphere specifically for a hotel that would represent estonia at the highest possible level. The hotel building is a monument of national architectural heritage. Having acquired a completely new interior, the building continues its dignified course, traditionally remaining a modern lighthouse in the very heart of Tallinn by retaining its classic atmosphere, which is now combined with up-to-date interior design. The location of the hotel is excellent both for sightseeing in the town and for business travel. ... more less
