Go Hotel Shnelli
10133 Tallinn, ESTONIA
This comfortable hotel is situated only a few steps away from the Old Town Hall Square in Tallinn. Made from two houses linked together, it is a pleasant warren of twisting corridors, staircases, unusually shaped rooms and what appears to be a number of original features such as wooden beams and painted frescos. There is also a lovely courtyard off which some of the rooms lead.
The fixtures and decor are a mixture of contemporary, such as the wonderful rectangular sink in the bathroom, and classic, there are some very attractive Chinese and Asian style cabinets and chests in the corridors. The room we were in was long and quite narrow but still spacious and decorated in muted gold and brown giving it a pleasingly relaxed atmosphere. This was also aided by the bed which was provoked a pleasing "Oooooh" as we rested our tired limbs on it.
Breakfast, which was served in either the cellar restaurant or the upstairs coffee room, depending on the number of visitors, was very good and consisted of a wide range of hot and cold food sometimes in a buffet format and sometimes cooked to order.
Body and beauty treatments are available and, best of all, the sauna is free to guests. A good way to warm up (a lot) and relax after a day of sightseeing in the city.
The staff were friendly and efficient and the service we received always excellent.
My one minor criticism of the hotel is that I would have liked a hotel manual/services guide in the room. There is an excellent one on the website and this service was advertised as being on the interactive TV in the room but ours, sadly, didn't seem to be. It is a very minor criticism, however, and I dare say had we asked for more information or mentioned that the service channel on the TV wasn't working it would have been dealt with.
All in all this is a great hotel, very reasonably priced for the standard of service (200 Euro/136 GB sterling/251 USD for a standard room plus breakfast and taxes during summer) and a perfect base from which to enjoy the fascinating city of Tallinn.

Fantastic hotel located in the Old Town. Very swish! The staff were very friendly and the hotel has a great wine cellar in the basement - very cosy and tucked away. The sommelier was equally impressive, persuading us out of our comfort zone and recommending some excellent wine. We ate in the restaurant, which was, again, great. In fact we could find no fault with the hotel at all.
Here’s an example of the level of service: I ran out of batteries for my digital camera and the reception went off to find some and gave me new batteries - no charge. Unusual in this day and age. Definitely worth a treat if you are heading this way.
It's located on the edge of the Old Town, within easy walking distance of all the sights, restaurants and bars.
