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.

The hotel is modern and efficient, located on the river bank very close to the city center and the university (the main admin buildings). Several large shopping malls in the immediate neighborhood and the bus station as well. The breakfast is not gourmet but all the essentials are provided. The staff is friendly and helpful. I would perhaps appreciate a tea kettle or a coffee machine in the room, or at least a free bottle of water.

Thank you for a pleasant stay! Great value for money, central location, very comfortable beds. Nice, clean and spacious room, big shower room and having all you need for a stay. Lobby bar is open till late if you decide you like a drink when coming back from a walk. Old town is around the corner and central shopping malls are less than 3 minutes walk from the hotel. The windows of my room were overlooking bus station but it wasn't any noisy and I could sleep with an open window.

everything was pretty good only two things disturbed. Firstly, the room numbers are written on the carpet on the floor and you really don't have to look at it and secondly car parking. If you gave away your room key you don't get to parking space. And no one tells you it so you must go between places to get again keycard.

This hotel is downtown, next to the bus station. It is a 3 star vintage. The rooms are very quiet. The breakfast is quite good. The rooms are clean, but lack some amenities. In March the air conditioner was turned off, so the only way to get air through the room and to cool the room was to open the window. The room did not have a charging station for phones, cameras or computers. Bring your own. The hotel has a spa but no hot tub for patrons. I arrived late on Sunday evening to find the hotel restaurant closed, and the local restaurants were all closing early. Fortunately I found a grocery store open for some fast food. The front desk staff were quite good and efficient.

I had been there before when placed in it for business purposes and thought it would be good convenient to stay there again when away for non-business. It is well located, not all that expensive and the rooms are quite serviceable. It was at a busy time and the lifts were very busy so tiresome getting up and down from rooms. The bar is not often occupied by staff. There is a sign saying to ask the reception but when there is non-stop checkin going on that is not convenient. A queue had built up and we just left. Why not get a remote controlled bell? And I think this is a bit of the thing in general, sort of a lackadaisical attitude to running the place. At breakfast there were plenty of staff hovering round but still the scrambled egg was empty. Probably easier to ignore the issues.

Vary basic hotel in good location. No minibar in the room and breakfast cannot offer fresh eggs. The hiding manager of the restaurant justified the poor service with the parallel catering work that needed personal. That makes a client really feel as the least priority... Coffee is also critically undrinkable.

Clean rooms, everything works as it should, good free TV channel list.

Good quality breakfast buffet; staff is unobtrusive, but helpful, and is just there when you need them.

Above average within the 3-star hotel range.

Minor gripe is double room had connecting doors, which didn't always stay closed, and which are impossible to lock. Somewhat flimsy sound insulation, but seemed to be within acceptable range.

Well located 197 room hotel close to shopping centre and river also next door to bus station although 20 minutes walk from the trains. Comfortable rooms with windows that open, but A/C if needed. We spent two night here and the room rate included breakfast. A sign at the entrance to the breakfast room suggested coming early (7am- 8am) when the numbers would be low, in other words calm, however arriving at 7.15 it was already impossibly crowded and with tables being placed together canteen style, there was little space for a relaxed meal as everyone was packed in together. It would be difficult to imagine then what it was going to be like doing the ‘busy’ period. This may be caused by coach parties or people reading the sign and coming early seeking a peaceful start to the day!

a nice hotel really close to the center of tartu (10 minute walk). The rooms are quiet and clean, but not the newest type. Breakfast has a good selection of different kind of food but the servicing are is kind of small. Free parking is availeble.

Three major things ruined our stay.
1) We booked our room a month in advance. We asked for a double bed, which we did not get.
2) We booked 2 relaxing massages via the online booking service. When we arrived at time to the massage appointments that we were looking forward to, the spa declined us, saying that they did not have any info that we had a booking. They even said that they do not offer "relaxing massages" (even though it is still possible to book those online). We did not even receive a proper and sincere apology or a refund and left feeling like we were at fault.
3) During high-season the hotel is very busy and noisy. Especially when there are hundreds of young athletes running around. Also, there was a table football right next to our hotel room. On one night, at 4 am, a group of drunk Russians started playing there, which was very disturbing.
We gave direct feedback to the hotel as well, which was not responded to.
Pros: OK breakfast, great location, nice view if facing the river
