    Budget hotel in great location


    The Baltic Hotel Vana Wiru (fka the Best Eastern Vana Wiru) is in an excellent location in the Old Town section of Tallinn near the Viru Gate. The location is very safe, both day and night. The hotel staff was primarily Russian. Since I only know a little Russian, it was a big help that most were fluent in English. I booked and paid for my room in advance with, and it worked out great.

    For the great location, the price was surprisingly low. While the room was fairly small, it had everything that you needed. The shower was very good, and there was a good amount of closet space. The bed was average -- not great, but not terrible.

    Breakfast was included in the price -- and the selection was excellent!

    The front entrance was through a small pub -- which was okay, but not great. After the pub closes for the night, you have to use the back entrance.

    Unique Quality: Free internet in the lobby. Safe Deposit box at front desk.

    Good location - questionnable hotel


    Excellent location for visting Old Town of Tallinn, the Opera house and town's all central shopping centers. The hotel is hidden just next to the main road leading towards Old Town.

    Good thing in this hotel is a lobby area and main entrance backyard, they are very pittoresque.

    The rooms are very small and there is no frigo/minibar/trouser presser, room service etc. -rather curious for a 4 star hotel. Maybe the stars where received before Perestroika (sorry for my expression) times with some arrangements. The story of Potemkin village pops up lively into mind.

    Same notion with the acoustic insulation, the rooms simply are chicken boxes without any acoustic insulation, you can without problems hear next room's telly or the noice from breakfast room to a 2nd floor. The worst thing is that unfortunately the good location is generally acknowledged by the Finns, who prefer not to keep the low profile in the hotel. There can be a rowdy group of drunks or a a family 60 -year celebration in a hotel, where the full family prefer to stay at room, drink cheap booze, discuss yell, sing, battle and weep until 4 a.m.

    Unique Quality: Excellent location

    No sound insulation, the walls are paper thin

    The hotel is accompanied with the bar or pub where pale-faced Finns sip their mandatory Irish Coffee with extra price. Ideal passage to the main street.
