Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

New hotel with modern decoration. Very clean, good bed and shower, air conditioning working nicely. There were free earplugs in the room, which I used because of a little noise from water pipes or something, others from my group were not bothered by it.

Instead of a breakfast buffet there was a menu with four breakfast options, and an a la carte menu. The food was very good but if you want to put together a full meal with all food groups, a buffet might be better. However this is a great way to avoid waste. The coffee was good, I would love to have it at home.

We booked it via their homepage because it was cheaper than all the other hotelbooking platforms. The rooms very very nice and had compfy beds. Smart-Tv and good bathrooms. Parking either on the street (depends which time you are there - there is a fee hourly to a certain time) or they have one or two spaces in the parking garage next to them. Breakfast is included and you can choose what you want from a menu.

We were in this hotel from December 15 to 18, 2023. The superior room (405) is modern with a large television with only Estonian and Russian channels, a good bed and kettle with coffee and tea. A large bathroom with rain shower. Except for some minor points of interest, a beautiful room. The cleaning could be a little better. We found the breakfast inadequate and too expensive for what it was. €14 per person for two croissants, two slices of cheese, a slice of ham and a small piece of butter (see the photos). You had to pay extra for decaffeinated coffee. For three days this was €24.00 extra. We found that very disappointing. We have never had to pay extra for this in a hotel.

Stayed for one night, Cheap and comfortable room, great hot shower. First room didn’t have curtains (which they knew about) second room had not been cleaned from the last person. Upgraded us to a room on fourth floor which was large with a lovely bay window. Hotel only opened a month ago. Needs some finishing touches to it(a note of the reception number by the phone) for the price is was great, just next time we don’t want the little problems to start with!

We spent several really pleasant days at the Rija Fonnental in Tallinn. The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful and our room was lovely with a nice view, although it was really small (we had a standard double room). Unfortunately it was a bit difficult to find space for personal items like clothes, toothpaste etc in the bathroom.
There is a restaurant that provides good breakfast (and dinner, which was also very good).
The location is in Kadriorg, next to a large and very beautiful park and Kadriorg palace, which suited us fine as the area was a bit more quiet than the city centre but still close enough to it - there are several bus routes that take you there in no time.
I can definitely recommend staying there!

A very nice and cosy small (boutique/design) hotel in a Kadriorg district. If you like to walk, you do not need a public transport at all to visit all the landmarks. Absolutely different atmosphere than in chain hotels in the center. The staff was superb. Rooms are nicely renovated and tasteful (scandi decor). There are not cupboards or shelves in the room to put the clothes/items away from the suitcase but additional furniture would not fitted well considering the room plan. In the end the lack of shelves/wardrobes, etc. was not an issue at all. The breakfast is not buffet but three choices (I did not mind at all). Breakfast was excellent/tasty. The only neg. point: there is a gourmet cafeteria opposite to the reception, I would have expected a good coffee at the breakfast but there was poor instant coffee served in the thermos instead. The solution for a guest is to order a morning coffee from the cafeteria. Nevertheless, the price and quality ratio of the hotel is really good. The coffee issue can be forgotten since overall experience was super. Very happy and satisfied about my stay, would return any time.

+ We stayed three times in this hotel in three different superior rooms. They were equally nice! They rooms beautifully designed. Bathroom is an eyecatcher. Good working airconditioning.

- There is no breakfast, which is a pity. Inside the hotel there is an independent coffee shop, but the prices for beverages and food are quite steep. This hotel is not central. There is no parking. You have to park your car on the street. It would be nice if there were small bottles of water in the room.
