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!

Room tip: Best location

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.

I stayed in this hotel with my girlfriend and her son in June 2018 for four nights to see Midsummer in Tartu.
The hotel is very centrally located in Tartu and very spacious and stylish. We had booked a junior suite which normally only serves two people but the hotel provided an extra bed on request. The extra bed turned out to be convertible sofa but it suited our purposes well.
The room was very spacious, almost as big as my apartment, and very stylish and clean. Even the bathroom was spacious and stylish and comfortable to use.
The breakfast buffet was served at the restaurant YliCool right next to the hotel. I found the breakfast buffet very bland, there were very few offerings I would have liked. YliCool also serves as a bar in the evening, but we were out on the city for so late that the bar had already closed when we came back.
Even though the room was for two people and there were three of us there (we had booked an extra bed) the hotel only provided us with one room key, and the key fob it was attached to was quite heavy. We usually had to leave the key at the reception desk and pick it up later. The hotel elevator was also a bit cramped.
Even though Finnish is closely related to Estonian, the staff don't appear to understand Finnish. Luckily we were able to converse in English.
Still, the good points of this hotel far outweigh the bad points. Even though the hotel is a bit pricey, I would definitely recommend it.

Room tip: The junior suite is a good choice of couples and families

We stayed for two nights in the Barclay. The room was fine but given that we booked a ‘deluxe suit’ I wouldn’t really describe it as such. The room was quite big and split into two areas. There was a good sized bathroom with a whirlpool bath that didn’t work.

The plus sides: The room was clean and a good size. The
location is great, right next to the old town.

The downsides: The room was roasting. Only one of the windows opened which meant one side of the suite got really hot and couldn’t be aired out. It was also incredibly noisy all night. Early evening there was music blaring from the nearby festival which was fine and expected. However what the hotel fail to mention is that the room is right over the exit for the casino/club so there is loads of noise until the early hours from that. And then there are drunks that hang around in the park singing at 4am. As there is no air conditioning there is no option but to sleep with the window wide open.

On balance if the room was cheap I would have been happy but it wasn’t. I think there are better hotels to choose.
