Domus Dorpatensis: Inexpensive Guest Apartment

The establishment caters to temporary residents associated with the nearby university, but is happy to house tourists as well. Guest rooms come in a number of different sizes and states of luxury. I rented room 2, an un-renovated but comfy room with twin beds, private shower and WC, a refrigerator, TV, coffee maker, and hot plate. My window looked out onto the courtyard of a nearby restaurant. I paid EUR 35 per night, though the website now advertises a rate of EUR 50. Free wi-fi is available, though I had to move up near the door to get good reception. Breakfast is available if requested in advance for EUR 5. A washer and drier are available for a small fee; I found this came in quite handy, and was indeed the last washing machine I was able to use in the Baltics.

- Apartments with cooking facilities
- Private shower and WC
- Free Wi-Fi
- Breakfast and washer/drier available for extra charge
- No elevator

Looming Hostel: Tartu's greenest hostel

Looming Hostel has impressed me with its environmentally friendly approach: Most furniture is re-used, self-build or recycled and different artists have created a very creative atmosphere.

It is cheap, clean and a great place to chill out after spending an interesting day in the city of Tartu.

The rooms are designed by different artists using mostly re-used materials. Very eco-thinking!

Domus Dorpatensis: Guest apartments in Tartu

I am currently in Tartu and staying in one of Domus Dorpatensis guest apartments. Apartments are really nice: they look very new, they are spacious, well-equipped and light.
Price is convenient (like 500 eek per night) as you get a whole apartment for this price with all privacy needed (separate entrance), parking inside the fence, your own kitchen & bathroom, internet etc. Staff is friendly and super helpful and location is just perfect - it's on the main square, right next to the statue of kissing students and city hall. I like it a lot here and I am going to stay in this apartment for another 5 months while I work in Tartu. :)

I would point out great location and amazing view to the main square which presents the centre of Tartu life.
Another thing is house itself. It's one of the oldest (stone) houses in Tartu dating back to 18 century and has a typical shape with U-yard, thick walls, high ceilings etc.
Moreover, apartments have great equipment like coffee machine, toaster, free wifi, kettle ...
You can also use the laundry room and free parking inside the fense.

Business Class Hotel: Hotell London

This 4 star hotel in the centre of Tartu Old Town is your usual business class option. Rooms cost around 1800 krooni (85 GBP) and have all the usual stuff such as television and minibar, though they lack tea making facilities which is a drawback. The reception area is really quite smart. The standard rooms are nice enough and mine had a view down the street of the Old Town.

Breakfast was nice and is included in the price. TV is mainly in Russian or Estonian but there are two English language news channels, Euronews and CNN.

The restaurant has a nice menu and food is relatively cheap considering the fact it's a hotel restaurant. However service in the restaurant was fairly poor the night I ate there and the food, while nice enough, just didn't make up for the hour we had to wait for it.

The location of this hotel is very good, useful for getting around the Old Town and seeing the main sights, it's just a street or so away from the Town Hall and main square.

Best qualities were a great shower and a comfy bed. Can't really ask for more than that from a hotel of this nature.

Hotel Barclay: Good standard hotel

Nice clean room overlooking a park. Everything is within walking distance to the hotel. Ordinary hotel breakfast. All in all a good standard hotel.

Everyone of the staff that I spoke to spoke english of course

Herne B & B: Breakfast at Herne B & B

We couldn't have been served better. We agreed on the previous night when we woudl like to have breakfast and when we went downstairs everything was ready. Breakfast included dark and white bread, cold cuts, cheese, yoghurt, tomato, marmalade, eggs, orange juice, fruit, coffee and tea.

Besides providing us delicious breakfast our host gave us useful information about the places worth a visit. We will definitely stay at Herne B&B the next time we visit Tartu. Hopefully already next year.

Herne B & B: Local hospitality

When the taxi turned to Herne Street we thought to ourselves: Oh no! On both sides of the street there were old neglected wooden houses and the area didn't seem too safe. Taxi stopped in front of well-maintened house, its owner came to greet us and took our bags in no time to our room and showed us around in the premises. We knew that we would like our stay there. The room was spacious, basic and clean. We were made most welcome and later during our stay we knew that the area was not dangerous at all.

Shared facilities, hot (and I mean hot) and cold water with good pressure. Both bathrooms and toilets were very clean. Breakfast, which wasn't included in the price, was plentiful.

If you are a light sleeper you might be woken up by other gursts who arrive late, because the floor boards creak.

Pepleri 14: The best hostel of Estonia

This is a perfect comfortable new building with lift, located nor far from the bus station and the centre.

The double rooms are very clean, with private bathroom, kitchen with all things you need to prepare a hot meal, if you wish, and a refrigerator.
I have never been in a hostel like this and I sincerely recomend it.
Each room has a TV and a free direct connection to the internet, but you need a computer.

Hotel Tartu

Hotel Tartu is a modest soviet style hotel near the Central Bus Station. Cheap, clean and with easy access it hasnt amenities but is a good option.
El Hotel Tartu esta situado a menos de 100 metros de la Central de Autobuses. Es un hotel modesto de estilo sovietico, barato y de facil acceso para el viajero que llega sin reservaci?n previa. Pero el ser barato no significa que no sea un hotel limpio y agradable.
