    Quite overpriced simple room with poor maintenance in a sought-after town.

    • Double or Twin Room
    • Stayed 1 night

    Even considering that hotel rooms in Pärnu are scarce, that it was a Friday and the day of a music festival, this room was quite overpriced at almost 200 Euros (worth 70 at the most), with not even an offer to help with the luggage up the steep staircase. Karaoke in the small inner court yard until 23:00. Windows in bad repair, not to be opened. For below the price of one night a carpenter could easily make the window in the room we had open again. We didn't have great expectations before but had to stay in Pärnu.

    Very convenient location. Breakfast was okay.

    Very central location, lots of amenities in the room, spacious and clean. Large buffet breakfast. Very nice staff who helped us park our bicycles inside while there was a street festival outside.

    There was a Karaoke evening in the courtyard, which finished around midnight but then customers continued chatting and making noise outside our room.

    The location was great, right in the centre of the town, We walked round the town and to the beach after dinner. There were plenty of places to eat and drink within walking distance. The rooms were quirkily decorated, with interesting touches, lots of amenities, such as new toothbrushes and toothpaste in the bathroom, sewing kits, coffee making facilities with ground coffee. The property was on several levels with a busy courtyard in the middle. It was good to stay in an old renovated property.

    -be aware that there is a karaoke bar in the cellar of the building. The music is loud enough to provide a sing-a-long opportunity for the guests staying in first floor rooms. Thankfully, the friendly staff was able to change my room to upper floor. Rooms 1, 2 and 3 on the 2nd floor should be safe option for those who appreciate the silence. -the lights in both rooms were too dim to read.

    Overall staying was on a good level. The only small thing I want to outline is that the room we were staying in requires renovation. The tea kettle was covered with age dust inside (but coffee machine was clean). The sealing in the bath should be replaced. Scissors in the bathroom broken, etc.

    Staff was great. Charming girl on reception. Friendly people in the bar. Bigger room was allocated for us with big bed, TV, fridge, coffee machine. The hotel interior was unusual. Good breakfast. Excellent location. Free parking places in front of the entrance.

    A couple of the lights weren't working. Could have used free shower gel and some kindling for the fire but those are minor complaints.

    Fantastic location, the room was great with its own sauna and hot tub. The fireplace worked. Everything was clean and quiet. No room service but it has a fridge and microwave, and they provide a breakfast that I unfortunately missed due to spending too long in the sauna. Staff were great too.

    Beware the hotel has karaoke every Wednesday and Friday evenings, it was advertised that this would finish at 23.00 hrs the truth is that the music was still being performed, outside in the hotel courtyard at 23.30 hrs, after complaining it stopped at 23.40 hrs only to re-start inside in the basement and continue until almost 01.00 hrs. I am no kill-joy but residents of hotels paying over €100 per night should be able to enjoy a peaceful evenings sleep after 23,00 hrs. If ? we return next year we will not be staying on either Wednesday or Friday evenings!

    Very good selection for breakfast both warm and cold dishes and nicely presented.
