A mid-upscale hotel located in the Old Town, about a five minute walk from the train station side of Tallinn (if you come into the international bus/coach depot you'll be about a ten minute tram ride on the No. 2--stay on the tram until you get to the railroad station because it will first swing all the way around the perimeter of the Old Town and will save quite a walk if you don't get off too soon, as I did).
Old Town Square is only five minutes away but the hotel feels many minutes away from the bustle and noise of the Old Town, though compared to Riga, and even Vilnius, Tallinn is a relatively sedate place. I was really impressed by the unique nature of the town--truly, a fully integrated and fascinating medieval core that somehow has survived, almost intact, for many hundreds of years. The hotel is comfortable, with wonderful service and comfortable rooms, decorated in an old-Tallinn style without forgoing hotel accommodations or making you feel that you've been cast too far back into the Dark Ages.
The breakfast is full and well-done and I used the terrace and restaurant for lunch and dinner at prices that were reasonable.
If you are solo, a couple or a business traveler who wants to be near the Old Town and is willing to pay for a mid-priced hotel with full services in a quiet environment, I highly recommend this hotel
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The hotel building is from 1877. It was erected against the city wall which is a late phenomenon in historical tradition. In the contemporary organization of the city it was strategically important from the perspective of protecting the city to leave a free space between the city wall and the buildings. The first data about the dwellings being built against the city wall states 17th century when the city wall started to lose its strategic importance over the bastions. No extensive reconstruction has been done in the building, but throughout times an attempt has been made to preserve everything historically valuable. On the second half of the 19th century, the building was owned by family von Stackelbergs. ... more less
