We stayed one night in a double room in the basement. The room itself was nice, however to reach it from the reception you need to make your way through what resembles a labyrinth and a few tricky flights of stairs. The breakfast selection was pretty nice, but the seating was rather inconvenient with there only being several very large...

The only good point of this hotel is the location. The receptionist was useless and not helpful at all. We had to carry our luggage ourselves as nobody was here to help or we had to wait 40 min and the stairs are really steep and narrow. The room quality was poor regarding the price. The bathroom was sticking and...

Cosy and nice hotel in the old city. your room can be hard to locate as they are placed in different levels, around corners up and down steps. Gives the place a medieval feel. Nice restaurant attached. Hard to get wi-fi signal in the room due to very thick walls.

For my opinion, nice place. Mace-like midevil building where you expect to see some ghosts. Only minus is that you cannot turn-off the birds at the morning 😁. Brekkie is enough for us, but as finnish as we are coffee cup sizes could be bigger, 90ml of coffee, really? Anyhow we have been enjoying the place.

I booked two rooms for a group of friends. Room #11 was very spacious, clean and cool even during summer heat. Only negative thing was the wifi. It didnt work most of the time. Room #17 was smaller, hotter, but with slightly better wifi. Bathrooms in both rooms were great. Hotel is located in a very old building with great...

We stayed in room number 6 and wifi does not work. That's all of the bad news, the rest is just diamond. Great place, nice staff and the good thing is that the location is very central without the noice. If I ever come back here I'll stay here again.

We originally thought we would need a hotel for only one night and had booked this online a month or so before. It looked charming online but was ultimately disappointing. First off, they put us in a room with two single beds instead of a double. To access the room you have to go down spiral stairs through the restaurant's...

To get to the room you have to go throught many stairs, some quite narrow. I can imagine that it cuold be quite tricky with big bags. Room was ok, clean and fridge was a plus. Bathroom was ridiculously big :) Breakfast was nothing special, quite poor actually. Good choice for one night stay, price is cheap even in Tallinn...

We recently went to this hotel for lunch while visiting Tallinn for the day. The food was amazing, the wine was really good and our waiter Stefan was charming. I would recommend you visit this hotel to eat. It really was a quaint dining area which we were glad we visited.
