TravelPod Member ReviewsGoHotel Shnelli Tallinn
I ended up here by accident as my booking at the City Hotel Portus was cancelled and they transferred me to Hotel Shnelli. So I didn't know what to expect and it was near a train station which I naturally thought might be noisy.
The rooms are very clean, minimalistic design, and the bed was comfortable. I found the shower appeared to overflow the bathroom a bit but the water never got out of the room and it did drain quickly. Hair dryers are included and the wifi worked very well in the room.
Breakfast was a nice spread of choices from eggs and meat to potatoes, toast, fruit and veggies. It is included with the room rate which I find helpful when I travel.
There is some noise at night from the rooms that face the street so bring ear plugs. I enjoyed the nice views of the Old Town which is across the busy road, so the location is excellent for access to the Old Town.
The best part of Hotel Shnelli is the helpful staff. They always seemed very friendly and pleasant whenever I had a question. I had an early morning flight and was provided a packed breakfast. They used a reputable taxi company with normal rates for my trip to the airport. Pleasant staff and service go a long way in making someone's visit a good one! I'd stay here again.

... street vendors. I happily photographed some waitresses sitting on the steps, either on a break or hoping to entice customers.
One interesting thing: the hawking of sweet coated cooked almonds. There were numerous such sellers lining more than one street. Apparently this is a very popular local treat, or one that appeals to tourists. I ...
... take their suits off. They would get their suits pressed while they drank a coffee. At this area they destroyed a parking lot and put it underground. The workers found artifacts dated to 5 thousand years ago. Where the parking lot was, is a square where important parades or events happen. For example if a famous person comes to Tallinn, then something will happen in that square. After the tour I went to lunch with ...
... holiday celebrations etc. So a chicken kebab at an outside picnic table sufficed.
Because there is not much to report on for today I have taken the opportunity to report on our ‘toilet’ in our B&B room. (see photos)
It was one of those fancy Japanese ones with all sorts of functions but with all instructions in Japanese. Well ya just gotta try these things don’t ya!

... passed the cemetery which was amazing because it was not cleared of trees as would happen at home, the graves between the trees. A nice resting place, we thought. At the coast we had a great view across to Tallinn. Heading back into town we passed a lot of stately homes and big soviet monuments. In the centre of Tallinn Hindrek took us to the Opera House where there was a presentation of prizes for nature photos. We impressed with the quality of ...
