Hotel Schnelli: Convenient

Hotel Shnelli
The hotel is located attached to the train station and only a 5 min walk from the Old City Walls.
Clean , modern , efficient... No atmosphere but quite a bargain at $58.00 per night with breakfast in. The rooms are large , with no carpet , which I love. Hairdryers and plug a adapters at reception . would stay here again.

The Knight House Hostel: The Knight House Hostel

We stayed at the hostel which is in the old town. An old building with shared facilities, but lovely rooms. Breakfast was included and every morning from 9 am they would be backing pancakes.

Pancakes for breakfast, the staff and location

MyCity Hotel (My City is former Domina Inn Hotel): Romantic, cosy and affordable with great location

We got hotel with ship companys special offer, it was really affordable. price of the superior room was 50euros/person at bargain.
Hotel is built in late 1940s in classic stalinistic style, and renovated 2001.
Nicely done, romantic athmosphere, sovietism is not visible any bad way.

Hotel has super location at vana posti, one block of the busy pärnu nmt.
Next to club hollywood nightlife.

Breakfast is nothing special. satisfies basic needs. we had only patonques, toast bread or croissants. dont expect so much from it.

If you want quiet stay, ask window to inner yard,
if you want nice city view, ask for street side, which can be noisy in summer or festival weekends.

Check out hotel site, (mycityhotel.ee) it has good pics.

Car parking is good, inner yard otherwise (see pic!) is interestingly rotten. there is empty, windows broken house next hotel. in city center! no harm from it though, just decribes that tallinn is still under renovation.

sauna department is ok, although the jacuzzi was out of order during our stay- and we got the space free of charge. BUT NOTE: you need to book it beforehand- NOT INCLUDED in price. Normal fee is 30euros(2013)

Gotthards Residents: Historical charm

The hotel was charming, and we liked how the rooms looked. Execept the fact, that we didn´t get a doubble bed, as we wanted. If you use a wheel chair, you can´t go there. If you can walk, but climbing isn´t good for you, make sure you´ll get the room at ground floor, there is no elevator. We stayed at third floor. Steps are very old, and not very straight, so you must mind your steps, but otherwise it´s not a problem.
Rooms were in really good condition, and nice and tidy. There was a bottle of sparkling wine for us waiting. We wasn´t quite sure was is something they allways do, or part of trip from Eckerö Line boat bompany ( we took the hotel from them, because it was REALLY cheap bought together with boat trip).
I would recommend this for couples for example, but you might want to ask the room little far from stairway. We went to bed at 2 first night and 3 o´clock (am)at second night, and I kept waking up for people coming from nighclubs, when our room was next to stairway.
Two things we didn´t like: The room service came at 17.00!! (at 5 p.m). We had been at shower, and luckily had our towels on, when the cleaning lady opened the door! She shouted "room service" when she knocked the door, and we shouted "No thank you!!", but she just came in! I think she didn´t hear our shout.
Another thing: The breakfast was terrible, but it might be our problem.. We had never liked any breakfast at eastern European hotels. We heard some people saying it was good, but we didn´t even go the second morning. Buns were dry, could cuts were greasy and there was a lots of things in vinegar, witch is the taste we both hate. And the room was so small, we needed to wait the table.

Good location and lovely historical, even romantic building. I loved the old wood wall and old brick walls.

Villa Hortensia: Sleeping in the Master's Courtyard

Villa Hortensia is recommended in many guidebooks for its central location and special ambiance. The guest house, run by the primary architect of the Tallinn Old Town renovation, features 6 rooms of varying size and accommodation. The rooms can go for as low as EUR 40 per night, but I splurged a bit and paid EUR 75 (now EUR 80) for one of the larger rooms. My room was spacious, featuring a balcony and cooking facilities, but a bit dark. Also, be aware of the sloping roof when getting up in the morning. The complex has free WiFi, though I had to go out on the small balcony to get reception from my room. Alternatively, I just went down and ordered breakfast and/or a coffee in the courtyard for even better reception. Those with limited mobility should note rooms involve climbing at least some stairs. Also, light sleepers should note there can be some evening noise associated with the courtyard's other businesses. Neither of these two issues were a problem for me personally.

- Centrally located in peaceful (but not quiet) courtyard
- Some rooms with cooking facilities
- Free WiFi in courtyard and some rooms
- Steep stairs

Economy Hotel: Economy Hotel

The title and the hotel name are the same: It does exactly what it says on the tin. It's not the cheapest accommodation in Tallinn, but it's probably the best value. It has all you would expect of a basic hotel, without any frills. It's clean, if a little old. It has a tv, even if it is small. It has wifi, even if it is sloooow. It has a bathroom. The staff are also very friendly, helpful and welcoming.

The biggest plus is its location - just a stone's throw from the old town. This is also its biggest minus, however. It's close to a busy tram stop. And Estonia's trams are quite old, and very noisy. The trams don't sound like they stop, more like they drag themselves slowly past the hotel with the brakes screeching on. It's really noisy so bring ear plugs if you are sensitive. They start at 6.

It's a work-a-day hotel - a place to sleep and not a place to relax.

They have a hilarious list of damage charges. Breaking a cheap glass that can't be worth much more than 50 cents, is 15 euros. A wobbly bedside table is around 50 euros. Don't even think about throwing the TV out of the window or you will be in debt to the hotel for the rest of eternity.

Hotel Tallink

Hotel Tallink is located just in the city center near the shopping and business district of Tallinn. I am not sure how good is this hotel as I haven't been staying here myself, but I guess if you get a good rate of boat trip including accommodation it might be practical to use this one.

Park Inn Central Tallinn: Clean, comfortable and well located

We travelled to Tallinn on an extremely well priced EasyJet package deal, and the Park Inn Central was a mid range hotel that seemed to strike the best balance between location and affordability. In fact, the cost of the 3 night package on a half board basis (ie. including breakfast) was very little more than the cost of the return airflight, so it turned out to be incredibly good value.

The hotel is very well located, and only 5 minutes stroll to the Viru Gate entrance to the Old Town. The rooms are Scandinavian in their design: clean and uncluttered and ideal if all you're looking for is somewhere to collapse in comfort at the end of a long, happily exhausted day of having a good time.

The breakfast is a buffet affair that is varied and generous - if somewhat unspectacular - and will set you up well for the day. Given that I am on a quest for the ultimate meatball, I was very well disposed to being offered chicken meatballs for breakfast, although the various incarnations of herring left me less impressed!

The hotel has a sauna facility which you can hire, and also has a bar which boasts a bizarre karaoke evening on a Friday (see one of the very few tips I've ever written on nightlife)!

This hotel is apparently very popular with Finns who come over on the ferry from Helsinki, as it is close to both the ferry terminus and the Viru Keskus shopping centre.

Reval Inn: Good value of money

We were coming from 3½weeks trip driving around Europe. We had booked this on net some days before, and got it in quite good price. (around 60e). After our last night in Kaunas,in Hotel that wouldn´t even been allowed to keep open in Finland( I´m sure that our healthy inspectors would had shut it!), this seemed like a luxurios place! And it was very nice, very clean and everything was new. Can´t figure anything wrong with it, and would deffinetly book it again, if we would go again to Tallinn. I forgot to take the photo, because we were so tired ;)

It´s very close to old town!
I don´t find the hotel page anymore! Does anyone know if it´s closed?

Old Town Wall Apartments

Great Location, clean, and cheap. The owners are very nice and easy going. The apartment is one big studio with a queen size bed and a sofa bed. Nice hard wood floors. Did I mention great location?

Viimsi Spa: Good place for a spaweekend

Nice hotel just outside citycenter (but easy reachable with taxi and bus). Hotel has swimmingpool, gym. health department with all kinds of treatments, spa area (that is always full in the weekends), hairdresser etc. Good value for the money, but the hotelfood was a bit sad. Make sure to make bookings for you spaexperiences at least a week before you go there.

Really good spa and health department. Included in the price is some treatments and half-board

Many smaller inns, as well as hotels.

I visited Tallinn via cruise ship.
Are these ladies off to a ship, hotel, or inn? Are they going to stay in a private house?
Perhaps I should've offered to help them with their cases!

Tallinn City Camping: Tallinn City Camping

The closest of all camp grounds near Tallinn is the Tallinn City Camping. Its located on the backyard of a small industrial ground 100 metres off Pirita Tee. Its more a place for campers than for tents, as the place has only little shady and grassy areas.
Showers and toilettes are spotless! The staff is very friendly and helpful. There is a Sauna but no restaurant or shop. Also you need to watch your belongings a little bit (... but maybe I was only unlucky!)
Master / Visa /Maestro card are accepted, although the electronic system has problems with maestro cards.
This place is expensive: Its 200 EEK per camp site and 50 EEK per person.

There is a bus stop on Pirita Tee from where you can catch bus #1a, #5, #8, 34a and #38 to get into the heart of Tallinn.

Next to the camp site is a cheap Pizza take away opened 24 hours , a few meters further towards the city is a pub and next to it is a Kebab place.

WARNING:
The round kind of barrel is the disposal area for the chemical toilettes of the campers. Do not pitch up your tent next to it!

Hostel Merevaik: YHA Hostel

In my opinion, this is a good place for backpackers.
This hostel offers 10% discount on all services if you have a Youth Hostel Association card. In spite of the location, about 4km from old town, there are good connections by public transportation, namely tram. The staff is kind and hepful.
Each double room shares the bathroom with another double room, and a bar offers a reasonable service.
Restaurants and bars are easily reached on foot from here, and a big supermarket is located just one foot.

apartment.ee: apartment.ee

We left booking late and found that most reasonably priced and central hotels were full but found this website on the visit tallinn site. We booked an apartment just a few minutes out of the old town in a quiet street. We were the first visitors in it, everything was brand new, excellent. Cost? € 45 a night, great deal too.
Huge supermarket just a few minutes walk away to stock the fridge up.
Would definately go back

The building we were in is new, there is another just over the road in Aasa Street which looks good too, very friendly welcome.
