We stayed at the suite with sauna over NYE. The location is stellar for anyone looking to spend time in the center as everything is just a few minutes away. As mentioned before by others, the place might look a bit outdated, but personally I wasn't bothered by it. It was mostly clean with a few exceptions like the faucets in the bathroom. We really enjoyed the sauna - it heated up fast and it also has a timer if you don't want to wait around for it to warm up. The only downside were the towels as they were quite small and there weren't enough to have something around you between taking steams for lounging around and then a dry one for drying yourself off after finishing and taking a shower. Robes were not provided. We wanted to have another session in the morning as well and for that the receptionist was very helpful by providing us with some new towels. The room also has a balcony facing the park in front of the house. This is also the direction of windows. Even with the hustle and bustle of NYE we still got a decent night sleep. We also didn't hear other people in the hotel, so that's a big plus. The breakfast is modest, but filling - a few types of sliced meats, one type of cheese, some cereals, some fruit, slices of tomatoes and cucumbers, omelette, sausages and bacon come to mind. Me and my partner were satisfied, but it can be disappointing for someone with food allergies or vegetarian/vegan diet.

Visiting Tartu where my daughter went to university. Needed a place that was central to the old town. This place is excellent. Yes I know it is not the most modern, and yes it had an old style lift..... and yes there are wall plaques to generals from WW2... but if you want to be out and about, this is it....

The hotel has a convenient location in the old city centre: 2 minutes to the Town Hall Square and 15 minutes by walking to the Bus station. It has clean rooms, good enough breakfast and friendly staff. This hotel is excellent value for money!

Stayed here for some days, because my friends' place, were I usually stay in Tartu, was being renovated. One of the main perks is a very central location. Staff is friendly and rooms are kept clean. On the downside, the interior definitely needs updating. The lock of the room door can get jammed sometimes and make it difficult to get in again. The bed was OK, the hairdryer old and weak, but worked, safe was also in working order. When there are few guests, you are supposed to choose your breakfast from a list at the reception on the previous day, otherwise, there is a buffet with limited choice. OK for short stay, if you don´t expect anything special.

Hotel has great location in Tartu old town. Hotel looks a bit dated and needs upgrade to modern standards. At the same time prices are very reasonable and the cheapest in city center, this compensates a lot. Please improve your breakfast back to the level, where it was ca 10 years ago.
