Old Meriton Hotel has an excellent location in the Northern part of Tallin Old town, close to some transportation means that might easily take you to some places,(Kadriorg palace built by Peter the first of Russia, museums and parks - really wonderful - tram no.1-tickets at the driver, two stops by the same tram to Viru shopping center), but you need a "thorough" study for understanding that, which might take some 1-2 days, the stuff didn't feel like giving you general info. My room, as a single person room was quite modest and lacking some few things like a mug,a kettle for warming water(availabe in the end, on request) , electric outlets placed at some height from the ground (reason for which, in the end, kettle happened to overturn on the carpet). The other petty thing was that they used a moving matress so that you have might have felt like being on a boat :-) On a whole, I would give them a score of 8. Breakfast also held not more than at a middle level.

Don't be fooled by the posh looking lobby - Meriton Old Town belongs to those '4-star lobby 2-star room' hotel category. And don't waste your €15 per night for a 'bigger' room upgrade to gain another 6-inch space.

Location is on the edge of old town with a 10min to the town square. Given that this was a 3 star hotel i was very disappointed with the room. It was outdated and very dull, the shower was very annoying as it had a curtain and it was so small the curtain clings to your body like cling wrap... some of the staff was very helpful, but some was not at all. The room didn't even had a laundry bag, you had to go down and get one from reception??? why not have it in the room? The tv was an old 28cmm TV hung high on the wall, and given the distance to the bed, you might as well bring a pair of binoculars to watch it with... Breakfast was good. Overall the hotel was disappointing.

All of the staff at the Meriton Old Town were particularly helpful and spoke excellent English. We had no problems, but the one or two small enquiries we did have were promptly and efficiently dealt with. Breakfast was included and was adequate, but not exciting. There are loads of restaurants nearby. This is a small medieval hotel. The room sizes are all different and it has odd corners and much character. We like this, but if you are looking for a plastic Novatel, look elsewhere!

En general valoramos la estancia como buena. La ubicación del hotel es inmejorable, en pleno centro del oldtown pero lo suficientemente apartado para que sea tranquila, el servicio muy correcto y el desayuno generoso y variado. Como mejorable podríamos destacar que las habitaciones realmente son pequeñas pero equipadas, que nos tocó una habitación en planta baja que estaba permanentemente iluminada por una farola de la calle y que la cama era pésima (muy blanda). En cualquier caso la evaluación global es buena.

il giudizio si riferisce al meriton grand hotel perchè una settimana prima del nostro arrivo siamo stati informati che non c'erano più stanze al meriton old town: abbiamo pagato lo stesso prezzo e l'hotel era 4 stelle. L'unico neo che il grand hotel si trova più distante dal centro mentre l'old town (che abbiamo visto) è sicuramente più caratteristico perchè costruito a ridosso delle antiche mura della città. il grand hotel fornisce l'uso della sauna e della jacuzzi a tutti i clienti, la colazione è ottima, varia e abbondante.

If your BMI is higher than 24, you should look for larger rooms!!! Room and shower extremely narrow, but for slim people o.k. - Good base for exploring the old town! - Difficult to reach with a rental car because of road construction. Have to pass an old town gate and then two times right. See the photos.

This hotel is good value for money providing free internet, clean rooms/public areas and is in close proximity to all the main attractions of Tallinn - it is also within walking of the port, handy for trips to Helsinki. However, note that room sizes do vary as I discovered on my second stay - I would still recommend this hotel regardless.

Customer service, accomodations and meal service were excellent. My only complaint is size of twin beds, too small. Room was small so can see why very narrow twin beds were used, but perhaps the room configuration could have used a dbl better than two small singles.

The hotel has 2 really nice rooms with balcony which are highly recommendable. The other rooms (we just had a short look) are very small. The hotel rooms are partly situated close to a very busy road. Still it´s a good place to stay because it´s within the old town, which is the most interesting part of Tallin.

Situated at the edge of the old town, the hotel is next to a frequented bypass road. Actually, the traffic noises demand to close the window. But due to the tiny size of the rooms it is getting too stuffily to sleep well. The breakfast was served in a historic, but drafty passage hall equipped with a TV showing soundless commercials. The offered food selection was uninspired and identical every day (one kind of sausage, one kind of cheese, some cereals). The prices offered in EUR are exceeded by the local exchange rate.

I recommend this hotel in the old city of historic Tallinn. It is located within 5minutes walk from the cetntral square and very convenient. It is also in a walking distance from the port. Accomodation is clean and staff's hospitality is good. Only think I should complain is the map on the web which is no use and you may be mislead to another hotel which has a similar name.
