Brilliant. This place is a palace, literally. The decor is a nice mix between the medieval old structures and bricks, mixed in with modern renovations. Room's are spacious and the king size bed is more than comfortable. Excellent location, a minute walk to the centre of the old town. It would be difficult to top this place in terms of location and quality.

We made our way to an area where we could see what was going on and realized that an air show was underway. The formations and flying demonstrations were amazing and highly skilled which led us to wonder where the fighters came from as we didn’t believe Estonia had the air ...
... tyre, and walked back home which took a wee while. Everyone was working so we had a couple drinks at recommended pub HellHunt before going for a late dinner at Triin's work, Rataskaevu 16, ranked number 1 in Tallinn. Its in a 1400s home and an amazing setting. We had a lot of fun being served by Triin and drinking cocktails. We had elk meat for the first time, as well some yummy salted salmon, chicken livers and a great chocolate pudding. We went home very ...
... into a local supermarket to get some oranges and strawberries. (The local bread-cheese diet can sometimes feel a little vitamin deficient!).
For anyone thinking of coming here, it is fun, historical, trendy and compact. It could easily be done as a day trip from Helsinki or a weekend city break, as many tourism companies advertise. We really enjoyed our stay here!
Lots of love,
