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.

Tampere Maja is based out of a rickety old building in central Tartu, not in the full of character sort of way. Just old with creaky floors. Location wise the guest house is excellent. It is very central, with good eateries nearby.

We stayed in a good-sized family room that sleeps 4. It was fairly poor value after coming from the capital. Included breakfast was mediocre, and beds were kind of saggy. No blackout curtains so it can get kind of bright in summer.

There was no room cleaning during the stay and reception wasn’t always friendly. You can cook in the family room however, which has a built in kitchen panel.

I think if you’re in need of a family room this could be a rare option in town, but otherwise you can probably find better options in Tartu

Just visited the sauna, did not spend a night. But the sauna is a very good deal for just a 30e/h and 20e for extra hours. There is a good place to hang around with 2-10 people and the sauna is big too. The place is old, so don't expect anything too modern, but that is also a blessing, I felt almost like inside a summer cottage somewhere not that center of a city.

What a lovely guesthouse. Really nice old building. The bedroom and bathroom were spotless and big. Great location just a couple of minutes to the town square. Very nice and friendly staff. Probably the best breakfast I've had in 16 years of travelling to Estonia.

I stayed there in February 2014 for one night only, but it was a pleasant experience. The room was big enough, clean and quiet. Yes, there was no view but i didn't care because you can always go outside to have as many lovely views as you want. Tip: if you do not find the towels on your bed, look into the cupboard.
The breakfast was downstairs in a roomy cellar with medieval walls. The food was OK but not enough fresh fruit or veggies.
There is a lovely art gallery in the house, and THE MOST IMPORTANT: that was one of the very few hotels that has real art pieces on the walls, very nice!
The staff was helpful and the price was moderate. I would stay again.

This guest house makes you feel like you're visiting an Estonian grandma in her old little house somewhere in the countryside.. The only difference is that you're finding yourself in the very centre of the old town and there is no grandma.
This place is full of soul, it warms your heart. The room I had was beautiful even though I had a view to a wall, the bed and the rest I had was perfect, the breakfast was simple yet really tasty (especially the freshly cooked oatmeal on the stove, as if your mom had made it for you. And wow, all the lactose-free and gluten-free alternatives!), I loved that there were paintings everywhere and the little library and an extra kitchen. I couldn't ask for more.
I suppose you can see that I really loved this place and I wish I could never leave.
Thank you for everything, you made me feel like a real guest, appreciated and valued..

This hotel is in a really interesting building right in the centre of Tartu with free parking. The rooms are a bit basic, like log cabins but comfortable enough. Some of the windows have no blinds so it's a bit light in the morning.

I stayed at Tamperemaja while having a working visit to my Estonian colleagues. The choice of the hotel was first of all due to a very convenient location to the working place - just round the corner. I enjoyed the stay - it was quiet and comfortable. The houe is an old, restored wooden building in the old town of Tartu, full of creaky staircases and all the atmosphere of ancient living. The instalations however are very modern and no inconvenience was encountered. I occupied a very spacious two-bed room with a kitchenette which I did not use much, but there was everything I needed. Some 15 min. away there is a large department store and there are numerous eateries around in the old town. A computer with free internet is in a corridor, just outside the room. The breakfast was fresh and well prepared, though sometimes it was late and I had problems with catching my schedule.
The only thing I disliked - I stayed for three days and they did not clean the room or remove the waste during the whole time.

This is a delightful restored wooden house in Tartu. We chose a family apartment (room 2), which had a double bed and 3 singles. The double bed was quite narrow, but luckily the extra single came in use! We needed a family room as we had 2 children aged 5 & 6 with us.

It was excellent value and had an en suite and kitchen area, although we enjoyed the restarants in town. There was also free internet access at the guest house and a downstairs sauna, which had to be paid for separately.

The only food provided was breakfast and there was a delicious spread of cold meats, cheese, eggs & cereals in a pretty kitchen area on the ground floor.

Enjoyed a meal at "The Georgian Embassy" restaurant. It's up two flights of stairs and we wondered where we were going first of all, but the food was great. The waitress recommended a mild casserole for the children and they also tucked into our lamb casserole flavoured with tarragon.

Also ate at one of the many trendy cafes in this pretty university town. There's a playground for the children up the hill.

This is a charming guesthouse in a great location a very short walk to the center of town. I arrived late, and had arranged beforehand for my room key to be left in a locked compartment in the foyer, which I could unlock with a four-digit code.

I was in Room 3. It wasn’t serviced while I was there (two nights), but I didn’t care, especially as the room was relatively cheap. It has a big bed, TV, two chairs, small round coffee table and a closet. There is no desk. The bathroom has a shower but no bath. If you want bar soap, bring your own, as only liquid soap is supplied. A hairdryer is provided.

One piece of advice: Take note of where the stairs come out on the first level where the rooms are located, as it can be a bit tricky to find the right door out again. A big “exit” sign wouldn’t go amiss here.

Если я не ошибаюсь, с 8-00. Но в любом случае можно договориться, они все, что нужно оставят для завтрака заранее. Там очень дружелюбный персонал.
