    Basic hotel. Spent 10 hours in the hotel to sleep. It Felt more like staying in Grandma attic than a hotel or guest house. There was no toiletries to speak of (an industrial soap dispenser by the sink but nothing for the shower. Given that the price was around 40 euros it did what it needed to do but probably would not stay here again.

    I wish I had known that there are party in every weekend at the cellar rooms. The noise was little bit disturbing on the first floor and there was a need for some earplugs.

    The breakfast was varied and tasty. The bed was wery comfy. The bathroom was little bit small but nice and clean.

    Wifi wasn't working so good in the rooms in the beginning. The room was tided only after the third night.

    It was very warm and quiet, it was at a walking distance from the transport, the staff was friendly, provided vegan breakfast as required.

    In the night we could hear a little bit of music coming from the restaurant, but it wasn't too bad. We would appreciate bigger cups for hot drinks at breakfast. It would be nice to have strong WiFi in the room (not only in the lobby).

    Our suite was very cozy, spacious and comfortable. My friends and I felt like we were visiting a grandmother's house. On Saturday night there was a celebration with live music and dancing in the restaurant, and we actually enjoyed it, even despite loud music. Breakfast was nice: it had juice, yogurt, cereal, semolina, omelette, meatballs, fruits and vegetables, tea, coffee, cookies, small pies, rye and white bread, pate, cheese.

    The doors are very thin and you can hear everything that is going on in the corridor. Be sure to take earplugs if you want to get some sleep. The place is somewhat overpriced. The price of 40 euros per night for a room without private toilet and shower is too high. The place looks like a hostel, but asks a price of a hotel.

    The location is very good. Everything is close by.

    We stayed in a top floor room, and the other rooms weren't occupied, so there wasn't any discomfort associated with bathroom location (shared, in the corridor). The room was cozy, and the view was great. The location is ideal for travelers who don't have much time in town - the castle is only a short walk away, and the very street where the hotel is located offers an architectural variety to gaze at on a short walk.

    The room had only a roof window and the sign outside restricted the view. No problem for me, but should maybe noted in description.

    Parking was just at the front of the hotel. The staff was very friendly and the room was good value for money. Ask for a 20% discount coupon for the Aqua Spa nearby.

    The nice little guesthouse near the sity and Rakvere castle. The stuff was helpful and the rooms was basic but ok. Our room was inside room so there was not noise from street. There could be some noises to the rooms which are the street side but the street is quite peaceful. You can leave cars just in front of maindoor and there is security cameras to the street. Breakfast was downstairs in the Katariinas restaurant and it was nice.

    Breakfast only until 9am. They have a strange way of making the bed. The sheet is wrapped around a blanket and put on top of the mattress. It doesn't cover the side of the mattress and slides to the side when you turn in the bed. After 5 minutes I got up put the sheet on properly, tucking it under the mattress. They probably do that to save a bit of work, but I'm not supposed to make my own bed at this price category. Also the duvet was about 20cms longer than the duvet cover, sticking out in the bottom.

    It's in the historic center close to the castle and on the one street with all the old houses (Pikk). Good breakfast. Clean, comfortable room.

    The sheets were really strangely small so that from our feet the blanket was out by at least 20 cm and on the sides the undersheet barely covered the bed.

    The breakfast was surprisingly rich in choices. The location was excellent in the town centre and right next to the castle.

    Some noice from adjacent rooms, one neighbour knocked at the walls ending up in waking up a baby, which for a short time began to cry in another room. But no big issue. My room had only a roof window but that seemed to be quite safe for minor rain fall.

    Good location at the main old street (Pikk) near the Rakvere Castle. A quite big room which was very good for the paid price, a quite good breakfast.

    Huone muuttui nopeasti vähän liian lämpimäksi ja kosteaksikin, vaikka toisaalta ymmärrän miksi kattoikuunaa ei oltu tehty avattavaksi. Lämpimämmällä kelillä olisi saattanut kyllä tulla tukalaa.

    Hinta-laatusuhde oli mainio, sijainti hyvä ja kaikki toimi kuten pitikin. Hissin puuttuminen ei tullut yllätyksenä, joten pääsimme pikkuisen kuntoilemaankin portaikossa.
