I didn't book this hotel. I booked the Reval Express hotel by the port, and had an email confirming the booking a couple of days before I arrived. So I wasn't best pleased to be told that they had 'over-booked' and I had to go to the Olympia.
The Olympia is a good 10 minutes walk from the edge of the Old Town, and there is no convenient public transport. There are always taxis, of course.
It was built in the 1980s, has 20+ floors with a swimming pool at the top (shades of 'Towering Inferno'), beauty salon, dentist (!!), nightclub, 'pub', cafe etc.
Very clean, whizzy lifts, comfortable beds, efficient service.......all the usual things you'd expect from a hotel which mainly caters for large tour groups and business conferences.
Good range of breakfast foods: hot foods, cold foods, cereals, bread etc etc. Coffee from a machine, drinkable but nothing special. Beware: if there are several tour groups at breakfast you will have to fight your way through the throng!
Unique Quality: Hmm.........does having the words of 'Imagine' engraved on the bedroom mirror count?
The cafe is very good, I have to say. It serves salads and 'smoothies' and sandwiches and cakes at very reasonable prices. In fact, I ate there most nights (it's open till 11pm): salad and coffee for less than 5GBP (free bread if you ask).
If you like modern, huge, 4* star hotels (they've had a range of famous guests, from Hilary Clinton to David Copperfield) then this will suit you.
Stayed 2 nights here in 1998, but didn't spend much time in the place - late arrival, very early departure and many meetings in between.
Central and convenient. It was newly renovated when I was there. I remember having a decent room service dinner (too tired to go out!).
Also remember it filled up with Finns on the Friday, just as the business crowd was leaving.
Unique Quality: Location. Comfort.
Nice large hotel, good sized rooms. There are two bars with completely different atmospheres but both good. I heard the sauna is amazing - it has an incredible view - but didn't have time to check it out.
The conference facilites were good and we had nice three course lunches everyday (huge amounts of food..) I can't comment much on breakfast as i think i only made it down once.
THe only bad thing i would say about the hotel is that the nightclub wasn't great - really bad music and a lot of people in there were quite aggressive. i had to wait about half an hour to get served at the bar as well. that might have been what was creating the hostile atmosphere around - and i think there was a fight.
Because im live in city of Tallinn,then i just dont know exactly nothing to say about the hotels,but the Olympia is the one of oldest and greatest hotels in Tallinn,and its location is very good too..
