Uniquestay Hotel Tallinn
Unique? Unique bad quality
Upon arrival, we were impressed. The place was close to old town and looked nice enough.
Then we found that our room was in a different building. Not a huge problem, but the room was also right by the road, with single glazed windows. The noise from the ring road was like an airport runway. This coupled with the people in the next room who decided to shout all night without so much as a warning from reception.
We complained, they moved us to another room. Now the noise from the road was gone, but more noise from the ajoining rooms. This time, not shouting, but talking. The walls were made out of cardboard.
The room was clean, even though the soap wash box fell off the wall and smashed all over the bathroom floor. Other guests also complained about the noise and the fact that curtains did not work etc.
Breakfast was tough going. The room is far too small, but also the food is not the best buffet in the world.
Staff are very robotic. Helpful enough but not a smile in sight.
The other branch of Uniquestay looks much better, but is not as close to old town.
My advice, Skane hotel is cheaper, closer and far nicer. If you do happen to stay here, demand a room in the main building.
Unique Quality: Walls made from cardboard.
Internet in every room
Good stay at Uniquestay
We stayed here for a week over easter 2007.
The rooms are ok, the breakfast was great.
The restaurant serve very few different dishes. Go somewere else to eat your dinner.
Unique Quality: Good location
Directions: Uniquestay Tallinn Hotel is located within few minutes walk from the enchanting Old Town, right on the foot of Toompea Hill, close to the Toompea Castle and Nevsky Cathedral
