    Location

    Room too small, no space between bed and window, no space for the luggage, very poor bathroom. Weak internet when we were lucky to have access. I would recomend the hotel if better rooms are availbale and if the internet works properly

  • 6.6
    Nice

    The old history of this hotel is fascinating, although not properly used in the design of the facilities and service. Meriton could also use the locational nearness of Three Sisters Hotel (the most expensive in Tallinn) for its advantage. Bella Vita room 's best part was the balcony (morning sun), although the room was pretty small.

    Small rooms, inadequate room cleaning (for example, no wine glasses and the stnadard water glasses were not changed every day), sometimes sheets were not properly washed. Morning breakfast actually ended 1/2 hour berofe the official closing (almost empty buffet, no cheese slices, no orange juice, empty salt bottles etc)

    Nice

    We enjoyed our stay staff were very pleasant and it was great to have internet access

    We found the rooms very small and the beds very narrow.

  • 7.8
    Very good

    Breakfast was excellent. Size of room was very impressive. Hotel was perfectly situated for sight seeing. Reception staff were friendly and knowledgable. Wetroom was superb

    Staircase to upper level was a death trap, could not believe how steep it was. total redesign required, better handrails as an interim measure. Review lighting, subdued lighting for night use of stair case essential.

    Very good

    Excellent old town location.handy for catching trams/trains.good location for catching ferry to helsinki.pubs/bars within staggering distance,dont trip on the cobbles.some early noise from trafficfrom ring road.reasonable breakfast although more variety each day would be animprovement.

    Nothing to dislike,did exactly as it said on the tin.

  • 8.2
    Great

    Hotel is immaculately clean, hotel staff were friendly and helpful and not intrusive. Breakfast was good, very fresh and good quality. It was very peaceful, no noise at all.

    Only thing is that the rooms are very light, I found it hard to sleep. Black out blinds or thicker curtains would help

  • 8.2
    Great

    The staff were very friendly and the rooms were comfortable (if a little small)- we visited in April when it was still very cold and the heating was on all the time. We also had free use of the spa/ sauna facilities at another Meriton hotel in Talliinn which was only a 20 minute walk away- very welcome on some cold days!

    There were no tea/ coffee facilities in the rooms and the rooms were fairly small (not too much of a problem though). The ensuite facility was cleaned with ammonia-based products which made the whole room smell awful.

  • 8.8
    Great

    The hotel was very easy to find, you just need to head for St Olav's church, as the hotel is just by it!! It is in a quiet area, but only a few minutes' walk from the main square. Our room was nice and warm, which was good as it was very cold outside. Everything was spotlessly clean, and we were given fresh towels every day. We were given a free room upgrade as we went to Tallinn to celebrate our wedding anniversary, and we paid a very good price for 4 nights' accommodation including breakfast. We really enjoyed our trip to Tallinn, and thought the Meriton Old Town hotel was lovely, great value for money and we would certainly stay there again!!

    We liked everything about the hotel, and Tallinn.

    Perfect

    We loved the location - a beautiful corner of the Old town, the fact that the Hotel is an historic building (incorporating part of the town wall!), very well restored and very cosy. And close to the tram line. Very good value for money at the moment.

    We didn't need bigger spaces, for us it was perfect, but in general the rooms are slightly small.
