TravelPod Member ReviewsTallink City Hotel Tallinn
The Tallink City Hotel is a lovely, simple, clean and easily accessible hotel with decent amenities. The view is nothing to hone about, but it was a comfortable place to return to after a long day in town. Nice beds, clean and large bathroom. What more do you need?
