... us, so in reality it didn't really matter who got it, although we would have preferred some more needy person having it. We tried to pay for the night by card, but he said they only took cash, which we didn't have enough of at the time We said we'd get some out when we went into town later. He discounted the price from €42 to €30, so we effectively "sold" the camping gear for €12!

A slow start today, a visit to a history museum then coffee and another wander around the streets before going to Rataskaevu 16, the No 1 rated restaurant in Tallinn (Tripadvisor). This was definitely one of the nicest meals we have had. Up until the last few days we haven't been experiencing gourmet meals as such. We boarded the ferry at 6pm bound for Stockholm after 17 hours at sea. Certainly a party boat, lots of bars, bands and drunk ...
... time to Middle ages, the waiter's and waitress were dressed in medieval costumes, there was no electricity and the place was lit with candles to propel the diner back in history. With live action role playing, the waiter was calling the couple seating on next table to us, My lord and My lady and the amazing crockery matching the medieval times gave it a genuine historical feeling. We had mulled wine in ...
... such as elk, boar and bear! The litre of honey beer I tucked into washed it down perfectly and I could happily eat there for a month and not have the same thing twice. I think they may even have had a non-meat option, but it could have been a typo!

Historical Traveler Reviews PK Ilmarine Hotel Tallinn
This is a lovely hotel, just outside the old town by the port. Don't be put off by staying outside the old town, Tallinn is TINY, it was no more than a 10 minute meander from hotel room to old town square. The room we were initally given was a bit rubbish, small, no bath with two singles, but we smiled sweetly at the lovely lady at reception and she gave us an excellent room. If you aren't 100% happy I'd go ask, the estonians are really friendly and helpful. The BEST part of this hotel is the excellent breakfast spread that is included in the price.
My partner and I loved Tallinn and if we ever go back we would stay at the Ilmarine again!
An imaginative conversion of an old fish market outside the old city but within 5 minutes walk of the Fat Margaret Gate, across a very busy road and tramway. Also quite near the ferry port (important to us as we were travelling on to Finland (recommended!)). The immediate surroundings are a building site on a former industrial plant and not very inspiring, plus some rather good residential flats.
This hotel is well run with staff speaking many languages fluently. It is a 10 minute walk to the city wall and a further 5 mins to the town square. Lone women travellers should be careful as the area is old derelict dockyards which are about to be redeveloped. The restaurant gives a 10% discount to residents and is cheap and good value as it is not within the walls of the city. Not all the rooms are double storey. Ours while clean and tidy, was slightly pokey and you could hear the intimate bodily functions next door!!. There are no tea and coffee making facilities in the room but the mini bar is a fair price. Breakfast is busy with an adequate, but not inspiring buffet. It is extremely likely you will be ripped off by taxi drivers both going to and leaving. You should pay about 60 krones (the local price) but realistically you will be charged closer to 200 (unless you pay upfront I dont know how you can avoid this). All the hotels and drivers seem to be in on it. The taxi can get to the front door - I dont know why a previous reviewer had so many problems. A nice hotel and good value for money.
This is a very comfortable hotel about 10 minutes walk from the very centre of Tallinn. The rooms are well equiped with safety deposit box, good mirrors, satellite TV and mini-bar. The bathroom is excellent. One of the best hotel showers I've ever experienced. If you are slightly disabled as I am the whole hotel is very friendly. Ramps where there are stairs and even a little seat in the shower.
Enjoyed my stay at Domina Ilmarine
I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. Situated in a good location, just a few minutes away from the Old Town Walls, room was compact but clean, great shower.
In the three days i stayed I had no reason for complaint. an added bonus was free internet access for guests which made contact with home easy.
staff in the hotel were always courteous and helpful.
Spent 3 nights at this hotel. Very neat, modern and spotlessly clean. Very comfortable beds(twins, no doubles?), great shower(walk-in) competitively priced mini bar but no coffee/tea facilities. The staff were very efficient and polite and all spoke English. Situated about 2-3 minutes walk from one of the gates to the Old hTown and a further 5 minutes to the Town Square.
There is a sauna/jacuzzi room but a charge is made.
We would stay here again having seen the location of other hotels featured in Trip Advisor.
