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.

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.

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

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.

This is the third or fourth time I have visited this place, and I must say it is absolutely my favourite. Wonderful athmosphere in a wooden house dating back to the the 18th century with great accommodations, cosy rooms, tasty breakfast, secure parking and a very friendly staff. On top of that there is always an interesting art Exhibition right next to the lobby. Not to mention a great location right smack in the old town.

This was one of the highlights of our visit to Estonia. Absolute courtesy and kindness from the staff especially on arrival from the receptionist who is also a student who can tell you about the fascinating Estonian language. We travel to learn do we not? Spacious and atmospheric room with trees at the back and situated in the old town. Small kitchen included. Excellent breakfast and gluten free wasn't a problem. Art gallery in same building and a sauna. Tartu is a most interesting city and the charm of its people and this establishment in particular are ambassadors indeed. Would love to stay here again. You can walk from the Bus Station along the river. Railway Station requires an inexpensive taxi.

We stayed there at the family room for 1 night, and had a good experience at this guesthouse. Sizable family room, with kitchen area, and there were paintings on the wall. Staffs were friendly and helpful. We need to check-out early before breakfast started, the staffs were kind enough to leave the pantry door open the night before (note: no 24-hour reception), so that we could grab a simple breakfast from the fridge in the early morning. Tampere Maja is an old wooden house, no lift, 2 floors of steep stairs. Be prepared if you have heavy luggage. BTW, there are good restaurants in town, like “La Dolce Vita” and “Noir”.

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..

Stay at the Tampere Hotel. 1st thing you'll see are stout oak beams that are 1200 yrs old but nevertheless there's enough plugs to recharge all your modern electronics, comfortable beds & sizeable room. The breakfast buffet is sizable & absolutely delicious (you like Estonian Herring; it's there). After breakfast, step out onto the cobblestone street, right across from Treffner Gymnasium (my father attened school there before WW II). The staff is ever so helpful. Across the hall is an extraordinary art gallery (in the hotel).

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.
