Lovely hotel built along the old city walls,so the setting is a very historic one. Not only that, but you are right on the edge of the old town and its gorgeous network of medieval streets and large variety of cafes and restaurants. We enjoyed a good breakfast in the bright and comfortable dining room. A variety of hot and...

I had booked a double room but the unpleasant receptionist tried giving me a single room as I was travelling alone. After discussion I was begrudgingly given a twin room, I had booked a double. The room was small and uninviting, the bathroom was beyond small, you could hardly move in there. This did Marr my stay. The breakfast was...

Smallish room with clean, comfortable bed. Well located in Northern Old Town near a gate in the wall and cheap parking. Surly front desk staff unable to smile and reluctant to assist. Breakfast was sparse but adequate-good coffee.

Excellent location against the ancient city wall in a quiet corner of the Old City. Rooms are tiny but clean. We had a wonderful view from room 309. Breakfast was good and the restaurant area very appealing and pleasant. Simple, basic, but value for money. Would have loved to have the use of a small kettle and maybe a second...

The Rixwell Old Town hotel integrates medieval structures and is part of the old city wall. Hence you can hear the traffc from the street outside the city wall --- but ear pkugs are provided in the room for those who need them. The rooms are small yet cosy and offer all you need: bed(s), table, chair, wardrobe, a tiny...

Good sides to pick this hotel: excellent location close to the heart of old town, good view from window, Breakfast basic, but tasty. Bad side: it was cold inside, because wind from closed window was worth to mention. Summary: average and basic accommodation in the beautiful old town of Tallinn.

I find paying at arrival fully ok. But at our arrival to the hotel something in Swedbank's service was down and the hotel's Swebank card reader did not accept credit cards.. We proposed to pay when the service is up again but were told that we have to pay before we can get our room keys. Luckily we had enough...
