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.

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 …
... to Tallinn on business for many trips over the years. He was a bit of a naysayer. He was wrong about F Hoon (in a seedy drug district with so-so food) but he did recommend a tour of a former Soviet era prison museum that is just as it was on the day it closed.
How could we not? So we paid our 3 Euro each and man, was that creepy. It looks right out of a horror set, especially the operating rooms with old equipment. We couldn't tell ...
... then as you pass, they invite you to eat In their restaurant. Having said this, we did speak with one who shared some information about the Estonia/Russian border. It was quite serendipitous, as he may have saved us a 15 to 24 hr wait by suggesting we do the southern border and not the north as we had planned.. We headed home and all agreed we would be up and moving by 7am tomorrow as we turn eastward to the land of the ...
... paying. Some woman in a small office shouted across to me so I headed over to find out what was what. She talked at me in Estonian for about two minutes while I listened intently, looking so frazzled you'd be forgiven for thinking I'd been electrocuted. I have no idea what she said to me, but I think she was trying to get me to pay to go inside the prison. When she disappeared back inside the office, I turned to an Indian tourist and asked him what the deal was. Apparently, like ...
... frogs, bleached faeces of dog, beetles, spiders and bits of bark - they must have really been grasping at straws in those days. The young people are vibrant and friendly with plenty of interesting places to stop for coffee or lunch. It feels like you are strolling down the cobbled lanes in the 16th century as many of the people are dressed in peasant garb complete with curly toed shoes.
