Wasted my morning having to move hotels because the City Hotel Portus was over booked. I ended up in a hotel called, Go Hotel Shnelli which has a better location close to the Upper Town city walls.
After lunch I was able to join another EST Adventures tour with Andrew of "Soviet …
We spent the day in Tallinn, Estonia. This is a beautiful medieval town with many intact structures and a city wall. We had a wonderful time walking around!
Tallinn's old town actually consists of 2 old towns: Toompea, the upper town, and All-linn, the lower town. The city wall has many towers and ...
... Saturday we cooked a kiwi brekky for our hosts and Triin's mother. They were impressed and it was a fun morning. We went and checked out the Jägala Waterfall just outside of Tallinn which was fun. Later we watched Sacha dance in the town square as part of a performance for the celebration of flowers, an annual event. We had a great Saturday night, meeting up with about 10 of their friends, all of them taking the time to speak to us and also speaking to each other ...
However, Germany had bigger issues in Feb of 1918 as they were slowly having their butts kicked by the Allies so they stopped fighting the poor Estonians. The Russians were also having their own Bolshevik Revolution at this time and decided to pull out. Estonia then managed to be independent for a while, albeit with a few brutal dictators, until the Germans came back and occupied during WW II. Then the Soviets bombed Tallinn in ...
... video airwaves, and CBC's Being Erica episodes re-aired on Estonian networks (way to go Canadian tv!).
The sauna centre is definitely a highlight. It includes a Finnish sauna, steam rooms (one with a salt scrub station), a juniper wood sauna, and a salt brick sauna. Unlimited access to the sauna centre is included for all guests, and everyone wears bathing suits. The Finnish sauna has an adjacent ...

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.
