If you haven’t been in the legendary Viru Hotel, you haven’t seen all of Tallinn. The first skyscraper and prominent landmark in Estonia offers breathtaking views of Tallinn Bay and Tallinn’s UNESCO protected medieval Old Town. The hotel has the widest range of room types, restaurants, entertainment facilities, relaxation services and the “must see” KGB museum all under the same roof. Original Sokos Hotel Viru provides direct access to the Viru Centre shopping mall and is close to theatres and popular cultural centres.

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.

A comfortable room for 2 persons for the night. A stones throw away from the old town. You have all the time to explore Tallinn during late evening with the stay at this hotel. The sheets and bathroom is clean. The reception is inviting. A bar is in the ground floor of the hotel, for those who like to sit and relax over a drink. The complimentary breakfast is good and caters to all tastes. The ambience is pretty cool.

Excellent service and a comfy room just so big that 3 kids and parents fit just nicely. Breakfast was also included and it was overall the best we have had in hotels Finnish or Estonian. 5/5 would recommend as a hotel for a bigger than average 1.3 kid family!

2 times visited Viru hotel, first and last. First room smelled like somethig was dead there. Luckily we got new room 5 floors higher so there comes one star. Overall tidyness is poor and carpeted floors are probably never chaged so dirt spots, here and there. One star is coming from pretty good breakfast. Selection is good enough.

I am used to stay in this hotel because due to its history and excellent location. Unfortunately, it looks that the hotel has seen its best days. In particular, the breakfast is below the standard Sokos hotels. The room is too small for so large hotel and the service personnel has problems to keep up with the pace the food is vanishing.

"Race weekend" stay in a perfect location. Car park and shopping right next tot the hotel were essential for me. Also the walking distance from the Finnish line to the hotel was important. 4 am breakfast on Saturday and plentiful breakfast on Sunday were perfect and showed that the hotel really cared about us who started the long race early on Saturday and then after the race needed a lot of calories to fill the tanks next day. Everything worked well and all the personnel were kind and helpful.

Excellent service, nice and friendly hosts, clean rooms. Perfect location close to the old city center and nice restaurant. Nice view from the 21st floor. You have to request room cleaning but in view of sustainability this is normal nowadys. No need to change your towels every day

I stayted here for the Ironman weekend in Tallin. Sokos is a comfortable hotel, very well located for the race weekend and sightseeing. Breakfast has what you need for race day (maybe missing peanunt butter!), and opens early for the ones competing on saturday and sunday. Spacious room and friendly staff, no frills. but has what you need.
