The Grand Hotel Tallinn invites you to an elegant and muffled stay. Quality service completes the image of this hotel which is close to the historical centre. Maybe too classic, it is still nice and widely open to the outside because of its multiple bay windows. Furthermore, the food is delicious.

    Location 6.06 /10

    Expect a 10 minute walk to get to the historical centre. The hotel is located exactly at a big intersection on the town ring road. Next to it is the Uniquestay Tallinn hotel. The residential zone includes some hotels and embassies. Located at the bottom of the hill of Toompea, it is 1 mile from the port, and 4 miles from the airport.

    Accommodation 8.20 /10

    The 164 rooms are spread over 4 storeys. They can be categorized as: 123 superior rooms, 34 for businessmen on the 4th floor, 4 junior suites, 2 suites with sauna, and 1 presidential suite. The 3rd floor is reserved for non smokers. In comparison to the other Talinnese hotels, the rooms are pretty big. The bedrooms have large windows and allow plenty of daylight to enter. The view is of either the intersection or the calm and woody residential area. The bedspread personalises the bedroom (red, blue, yellow). Everything else is extremely classic and sober. Equipment: television with pay-channels for movies (19 channels), air conditioning, a kit for tea/coffee, direct telephone line, and mini-bar. The rooms with a bathroom that has a window allow you to take a bath while admiring the beauty of the Estonian sky. The bathrooms with a shower or bathtub seem almost too big. They are equipped with welcoming products with dispensers and hair dryers.

    Overview 8.20 /10

    Built in 1964, the Grand hotel Tallinn is one of the oldest hotels in the capital. But this is not apparent since it was renovated in 2006. At the large reception, the personnel are truly at your service. The welcome is very nice. The hallways and security accesses are beautiful and classic great spaces completely surrounded by a vitreous wall. The lift, all glass, lets you admire the view. The different floors are not carpeted, to eliminate problems with allergies. The hotel has several rooms with different facilities: a sun lounge, Finnish saunas with jacuzzi, and the new spa. In addition to that, there are various choices of beauty care and massage applications. Above, the space reserved for receptions opens onto a great panorama. on the ground floor, guests can relax in the casino "Le Moulin Rouge". Free parking is available just in front of the hotel.

    Food and drink 8.20 /10

    A big beautiful buffet is waiting for you in the restaurant of the hotel with a large choice of international and Tallinnese dishes, open from noon to 3 PM, and from 6 PM to 10 PM. You won't have a problem recognising the specialties of the region because all Estonian dishes are labelled with the flag of the country. To taste: the fish for sure! You will find all kinds of side dish to accompany it: sauce, olives, pickles (taste especially the marinated garlic!). There is a buffet for the children. The restaurant is large and elegant, and becomes quite dark in the evening. You will notice the big bay window, but it overlooks a very busy trunk road. During the week-end, a live piano will entertain the guests in the evening. The Grand Hotel Tallinn offers "à la carte" dishes from noon to 11 PM. Not far away, the Café Mademoiselle, well-known for the quality of its pastries serves cafeteria style from 7 AM to 10 PM. It would be easy to change its name to "The Paradise for Gluttons" because the choice of pastries is great. Try the tiramisu or the rhubarb cake, a very Estonian specialty. Here there are special menus for children and games to amuse them. Activities are sometimes possible, like painting. Also: the lobby bar opens from 8 AM to 1 AM.

    To know

    Avoid falling into the very usual confusion between the Meriton and the Marriott. In 2005, a newspaper selected the Grand Hotel Tallinn as the "the Tallinnese hotel the most comfortable for children". The hotel gets 70% group and 30% business customers. The nationalities the most seen are Russian, German, Finnish, and English. At the front desk, you will find a porter, and newspapers. A dentist is on site, as well as a security guard, 24h a day.

      • Value for money 7.11
      • Location 9.31

      Open since 2006, the Savoy Hotel once welcomed office staff and shopkeepers through its doors. This is because over the years the building has served as the headquarters of a newspaper, a bank and finally to house shops, before becoming part of the hotel industry. A 4-star establishment, the Savoy offers 44 guest rooms which are elegant but lack originality. However, the same cannot be said for the common areas, which consist of a restaurant and a private lounge where walls date back to the Middle Ages.
