This hotel is conveniently located in Old Town Tallinn and only a 5 minute walk from the ship terminals. Our room was spacious and oddly shaped with a lot of windows, making it quite charming. While it seems to be an older hotel, it has undergone renovations to make it more modern (stylish lobby and dining area). Breakfast was pretty...

Just returned from a two night break in beautiful Tallinn. We stayed in the Meriton Old Town Hotel. Loved the location and the hotel, which is situated on the inside of the medieval wall of 'Old Town' Tallinn. Breakfast is continental style with plenty of choice. The hotel is very clean and also has free internet access. Cafe Mademoiselle inside...

The hotel was far from capacity, but for some reason we were placed at the farthest section in the hotel from reception. This was irritating upon check in when we walked all the way there and our key wouldn't open the door. I had to walk all of the way back and received no apology for the inconvenience. Also, said...

My husband and I arrived at ' the meriton old town hotel' which i'd booked, paid for and had confirmed 2 months ago. I had especially chosen this hotel within the old town for my 40th birthday weekend, to be turned away, as our room for 3 nights had been double booked. We were told to stay in the sister...

We stayed at the Meriton Old Town Hotel for two nights. Booked online though when we arrived our two rooms for 3 people had become a triple! Our reserved room was quickly swapped for the required two, but I do wonder what would have been if we had not taken our printed confirmation. The rooms we were given both looked...

Stayed here on the last night of our Tallinn and Helsinki trip having spent our first night in the sister hotel, the Old Town Garden Hotel up the road. Wanted to try this one out as it is built into the old town wall which you can see in the cafe area. Room was small with bed up against wall...

I spent a while trying to choose a suitable hotel to stay in Tallinn, and finally settled on Meriton Old Town because of the good price and location. The choice proved to be right from the very beginning. I requested a room overlooking the Old Town, and the hotel respected my wishes. The room had a breathtaking view over Oleviste...
