    This is the place to stay at close to the old town. Quiet rooms, big common area with kitchen if needed. Parking in front of the building. Public transport also available. You can buy your Tallinn card here also.

    Good location, near the entrance of the old town. It has a sauna available, we didn't try it. Very comfortable beds. Little but cozy room for a short stay in town.
