Hotel Bern sits in a very convenient location on the eastern edge of the Old Town (city center) of Tallinn, making it an excellent starting point no matter which direction you wish to explore. The main city square is a 5 minute walk, the Toompea (Upper Town) and ship port are both a 10 minute walk, and some of the best restaurants and attractions are right in between. The Viru gate (the entrance to the old town) is just down the street, and a grocery store is located directly across the street from the hotel.
The hotel, which opened in 2007, features a quiet library/conference room for reading or meetings, a restaurant serving buffet breakfast, and a lobby with a sitting area as well as a small cafe/bar.
A variety of rooms are available, including special rooms for allergy sufferers. Each room features a private bathroom, wireless Internet, a closet, a stocked mini-fridge, and flat screen TV’s. Room types include single, twin, double and deluxe, the latter featuring extra space and a whirlpool.
We found the beds to be firm and comfortable, the sheets clean, and the rooms spotless. We are big fans of the shelving that runs around most rooms as an excellent place to drop travel gear and keepin it handy upon returning from sightseeing.
The hotel staff are very friendly and speak excellent English.
With prices ranging from 58 Euros – 130 Euros per night, we highly recommend Hotel Bern as an excellent value for its amenities and location.
