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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We had e really nice experience at this hotel. The walk to the city center is nice and short. The breakfast was really good. The staff was very helpful and friendly. I would stay there again and recommend it to others.

The Villa Margaretha is conveniently located a short walk from the centre of Tartu. The hotel has a traditional atmosphere and is comfortably furnished. The bedroom and en suite shower room are well fitted out and cleaned to a high standard. Breakfast is good with a reasonable variety of well prepared food. The staff are courteous and helpful. The hotel has a car park in an adjoining yard.

We had a very pleasant stay at this hotel. The hotel is a monument, so it is as if you stay in a museum. That is something that we like, but maybe others don't. The room was big and clean, the shower and breakfast were very good. This hotel offers free parking at the back of the hotel, the city center is within a 10 minute walk.

The room didn't have air condition even though the website said there would be one. Also the website said that the location is 150 m from the center, in reality it takes 10 minutes to walk to the Tartu center. Those things we could manage, but unfortunately the biggest disappointment was the staff. We have visited the hotel's restaurant few times before and have always had a pleasant service but this time it was something else. Receptionists were impolite and there were not at all customer service. No smiles from the staff and we felt like we were "bothering" the staff with our questions. When I told the receptionist that we had few things in the room that we weren't so pleased about, she basically rolled her eyes and said "well then you can complain", other staff member at the background started to laugh. So the things that we were not pleased by was : Sheet in the bed were ~20cm too short, linen and robes had holes in them, there were no handsoap (we asked it for two times before we could get some), there was used beauty products in the room, dirty towels.. We asked the staff to fix these things few times before they did something about the situation. And, we did never get the right length sheets...

We have been there during a city celebration. Everything is clean, the staff are friendly. The rooms are nice. Just in our case we had to leave the house to come to our room. But maybe the house was so booked out, and usually you do not need this additional way. We would come again.

We stayed one night in a deluxe suite, which was wonderful: spacious and nicely decorated, very clean also. The breakfast was rather good, enough choices. Very friendly personnel. Free parking at the courtyard was also a plus. Walking distance to the old town, about 10 minutes. This hotel was a good choice for us and I will definitely book the same deluxe suite again when next time in Tartu.

This is a lovely little hotel, very quaint and charming with friendly helpful staff . The choice at breakfast was amazing and such good quality. The only downside was the hours that the restaurant, bar and the decking area were open. We would stay there again as it is in a lovely quiet area but near enough to walk in to the town.

This hotel would suit a history-lover perfectly. One of Estonian War of Independence’s leaders – Julius Kuperjanov lived in this fancy Art Nouveau with his wife, where he also passed away before being buried in Raadi cemetery. This building was completed in the first half of the 20th century and renovated completely between 2004–2008. The Art Noveau furniture featured in the building is authentic, having been collected from St. Petersburg, Helsinki and Estonia. The wallpapers and bordures have been chosen wisely considering the era. Every room is named after popular female names during the Art Noveau – Hildegard, Vilhelmine, Elisabeth, Rosalinda etc. A luxury suite called Alice is named after Mr. Kuperjanov’s wife. The breakfast was served in the cellar hall. The breakfast was nice, but did not really stand out. Likewise the customer service has plenty of space for improvement – some waiters do not seem to understand at all why they have been hired. Also disappointing is the fact that during winter season, the hotel restaurant closes at 6PM already. It is most definitely one of Tartu's most beautiful boutique hotels, but a mini-renovation and some paintwork together with more training for the staff would not do any harm at all.

Been there for one night. The Villa is located in walking distance to Tartu City Center. Nice, old building built around 1900, the furniture fits the outside style, very nice made. Nice restaurant, free WiFi (without any problems for me), Parking Lot in the yard. I really liked that lace and will come back.
