Great location and the restaurant next door was great
I was upgraded and was unpleasantly surprised by the room I was upgraded to
The breakfast was very tasty! There was a lift which is pretty nice that you don't have to take the stairs even to the 3-4th floor especially after a tiresome good walk through the city. Good internet and satellite TV as well.
The bathroom was tricky - the floor warming seemed not to be working properly. It took a while to understand how not to flood the entire bathroom. And there was a funny smell sometimes present probably from the sewage.
Staff very pleasant and helpful. Good breakfast buffet - plenty of variety.
The Rija Old Town is quite a quaint hotel on the edge of Tallinn's old town. It is within easy walking distance of all the major sights, bars and restaurants. It is also a 5 minute walk to the bus and tram stops and a 20 minute walk to the ferry terminal for the Helsinki ferry. Many thanks to Anna on reception who was incredibly kind and helpful.
Our room was unbelievably small. We came to the conclusion that it was a single room with two single beds stuffed into it. There was just no room to put anything. Two people were a crowd! The 'hot' food selection at breakfast was lukewarm, and the coffee was warm and weak. The staff seemed more interested in standing around the kitchen talking to each other than collecting plates from tables and checking on empty dishes etc. When we arrived back one evening at around 8.15pm, Anna suggested we use the hotel's restaurant. She was left extremely embarrassed and upset when the kitchen staff told us they were closed, even though it was meant to be open until 9pm.
Place is located in Oldtown, so all objects are in walking distance. We had really nice breakfast with a lot of options. In general all area is really nice.
Bathroom was really small, it was hard to use all facilities.
With a stay at Rija Old Town Hotel, you'll be centrally located in Tallinn, steps from St. Olav's Church and 8 minutes by foot from Town Hall Square. Featured amenities include a computer station, dry cleaning/laundry services, and a 24-hour front desk.
