Stayed for one night with my family. Nice and clean family room, a bit small but enough for a short trip. Great location close to old town and bus stops if you want to travel further, direct access to shopping centre. Staff was nice and helpful, also towards children.

It is too expensive for soviet times room with dirty windows looking at the sea. But you can enjoy beautiful views of Tallin from 10 th floor or higher. Near the old city of Tallin. Enough place to park you cat. Breakfast was various and tasty.

I was fun to get a free ticket to the nightclub in the basement of the Hotel Viru as part of the KGB Museum tour. The club was fun to visit and was what I expected very Eastern European and fun to people watch all come together on the dance floor.

Room was modern and clean, with a nice view to old town. Beds were comfortable and the staff was friendly.
