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.

Room was charming and cozy, the bed was very comfortable and the spa was great. This was also very nice that we had a chance to take hot beverages free of charge in the lobby if we wanted. We really enjoyed our stay in Lydia Hotel and would like to visit it again near future.

Chic hotel in the heart of the town, close to the town hall. Great food for dinner and breakfast, nice views of old town and park. Friendly, dedicated staff. We bought one of the cozy bathrobes. We would love to come back one day. Highly recommended.

The hotel has a great location in the city center, yet it is calm. My room under the roof was charming and cosy, even if the bathroom was small. There is a cute wellness area, with a little pool with waves and a couple of saunas. The breakfast had a good choice of local meals and was tasty . I recommend Lydia to everybody.

A wonderful hotel and definitely my first choice in Tartu. Pleasant reception upon arrival - friendly and helpful reception staff! We were welcome! Relaxation in saunas - especially pleasant after a tiring day. The breakfast is very tasty and the set up is also very beautiful to look at. The lobby rest area is a good, quiet place to chat and have coffee with friends! We did not dine at the restaurant this time, but we were delighted with our previous visit. Thank you, see you soon!

Place to relax and switch off. Located in the center of Tartu, where is nice to walk and During winter there was outdoor skating area. Great "fine dining" restoran which is one of the best in Estonia (Michelin). Loved the morning eggs with nice view to the park.

Stayed in standard room. It was very comfortable, lots of space, big TV, cozy chair and table in the room. Same experience as delux in other hotels I have stayed. Breakfast was good. As vegan I had choice. Good coffee. Friendly reception when I arrived early. Spa was small and a bit boring (maybe because I was alone). If I had a friend to chat with, it would be ok I guess. I had hoped to get morning swim but no swimming pool.

I made a mistake of booking this hotel again after staying there once during end of covid and thinking of giving them a chance to see if the attention to customer service might have improved. Unfortunately not, staff is uncaring and not willing to meet any of the smallest request. Even though the rooms and spa were nice, it is overpriced and cannot made up by the lack of basic customer service etiquette from the people who work there.

Absolutely super hotel where everything is better and carefully linked to each other. Sleeping quality is absolutely perfect-bed, pillows and etc. Just booked the regular room and was truly surprised that it is like a premium for other hotels. Room looked into the courtyard and was very quiet despite of hotel location in the active street. Breakfast - defenately the best breakfast I have experienced in the hotels so far - everything you need. Was travelling for business - the meeting room is very spacious with the big screen, good connection, good air conditioning. Parking - it is tiny and hard to get the place but very warm garage is offered for 23€ per night. Loved to find also charging availability for the electrical car Dinner - hotel has one of the Michelin Guide restaurants - the food was excellent both on taste, size as well as looks. Defenately worth to try! Defenately would love to visit again! Quality is in everything in this hotel.

Very nice getaway over weekend. Visited consert on Saturday evening. On Sunday morning, we enjoyed the Spa facility. Relaxing in the jacuzzi pool, visiting steam sauna and regular sauna. Breakfast after Spa visit. All what you can want for a very good indulgence at breakfast time. Sparkling wine included so you can get a Mimosa aswell.
