Travel Blogs from Tallinn
Here we are in Tallinn, the capital city of the smallest of the Baltic countries, Estonia. There are currently 1.3 million citizens of which 90% are Estonians and the rest, mostly Russians. Estonia thinks of itself as a Nordic country and not a Baltic country because its language is a lot more closely related to Finnish than any other language. It …
Prior to dinner last night I was chatting to one of the trombonists in the Syd Lawrence Orchestra who was having a drink in the bar. I noticed that he had his leg in plaster and protected by a boot up to his knee. He ruptured his Achilles' tendon nine weeks ago. I was able to give him some words of consolation and I hope encouragement particularly when I showed him my scar! After dinner the orchestra played again this time playing Big Band numbers, they ...
Yesterday was our first full day at sea. Making our way to Estomia from Denmark via the Baltic Sea. It was fairly wild and windy and the waves were huge crashing against the ship. Not exactly sure where the day went but we managed to keep busy between the gym, learning to jive, and of course making sure we were fed and sufficiently hydrated. At sea days coincide with formal nights so we dressed for dinner before going to the ...
... being recorded, but no one knew exactly where the bugs were – they could be anywhere from under one’s dinner plate to under the ashtray in one’s room. There are stories of someone walking into their hotel room, peering into the bathroom, saying out loud, “Of course there’s no toilet paper, it’s the Soviet Union” and their door would open and a hand would pass in toilet paper. Or someone would say, “we could really use ...
... part of the territory ceded to Russia by Sweden under the Treaty of Fredrikshamn in 1809. It became part of the semi-autonomous Grand Duchy of Finland. During Crimean War there were battles due to different understandings about military presence on the islands and 1856 the area was demilitarized. During WWI there was brief Swedish occupation or peace keeping, as you wish. Anyway, they ignored the ban to have military presence on the islands. 1919 ...

Only 10 minutes to walk to the old town but far enough to be quiet making sleep much more enjoyable. Good breakfast, nice service, comfy rooms.

Historical Traveler Reviews Kreutzwald Hotel Tallinn
Having stayed here in 2006 I was delighted to see that the hotel is being totally modernised.
There may be some building work on site if going there in the near future but dont worry it does not interfere with your stay.
Rooms are now very clean and comfortable with free internet, tea and coffee and TV.
The old town is about a 15 min walk or 5 mins in a taxi.
Breakfast is ample and will set you up for the day.
Very good value for B&B but watch the prices in the bar!
Tallinn what a great place , super hotel
First time to Tallinn, not the last! booked a Zen room, jacuzzi and computer :) location really good for the sights and English breakfast.
Smiley staff helped as the weather was a bit overcast. some signs that the hotel has been revamped outside ie building stuff but i am sure it is gone now.
In Tallinn haben wir uns für dieses Hotel entschieden, und es war eine gute Wahl.

The location is great also , much better than you expect, especially for the price of 70 euros!
A pleasant surprise
I visited Tallinn with my sisters on the first week of October. I must say that I did not know much about the city before. The first great surprise was of course the hotel- Uniquestay Mihkli Hotel. The hotel is newly renovated and the rooms are tasteful and modern. My younger sister was especially thankful for the 24-hour internet access in our room! Anyway, to cut a long story short- Tallinn was wonderful and the hotel an excellent find!
Just returned from a visit to Tallinn, stayed at the Uniquestay Mihkli Hotel along with my wife mother and brother. The staff there are the most helpful that I have come across on my travels through eastern europe. The hotel has undergone a fantastic renovation and has great cafe bar modern rooms and free broadband access and a pc in every room
Will look no further on my return.
Great Value Modern Hotel
The hotel was well located a few minutes walk from the old Town. The staff were helpful, organising airport transfers and giving us directions. The rooms were clean and modern, with TV, computer and a safe. The breakfast was fine.
A decent hotel
Planning a new trip to Tallin I realizd that I never reviewed this hotel the first time we were here. At that time I was part of a group using the hotel for a seminar at low cost price. the hotel worked out quite well, we all were pretty pleased by the food served, the conference room was ok, and at least my room was quite nice. I got a double to use as a singel and had quite a lot of space. I enjoyed the wooden floor, since I feel they are cleaner than carpets. The bathroom was new and modern, with a nice shower. I also hadt a TV in the room with several channels. Most of our group walked to the old town, but the hotel was also helpful in calling a taxi when needed. If one used those taxis, the prices were also relatively fair, unlike taxis taken from taxi stands.
Great value hotel
Ideally situated only a short walk into the old town, we found the Mihkli an ideal place to stay. Large, clean and warm rooms, friendly staff, adequate breakfast and easy to come and go as you please. Plus at around £20 a night per person very good value.
The hotel is around 5-10 minutes walk from the lovely old square. It is very basic and the rooms are nothing special but it's as comfortable as you could expect from an 2/3 star hotel. If you can get a cheap price and you don't mind a short walk into town then I would recommend it wholeheartedly. The breakfast is definitely continental and nothing to write home about, but the bar is quite nice and hospitable.
