Poor 2.0
I stayed for 2 nights, my room was not cleaned nor towels exchanged in between. Hotel needs more than lick of paint, but as long as the clientele is mainly drunken Finns abroad behaving badly, I can understand why no investment is made.

Surrealistic breakfast experience
We had a basic familiar room and at the beginning we were positively surprised by the different details for kids (as a bunk bed with a climbing wall or furniture and amenities for them). Our nightmare started when we went for breakfast the morning after. Firstly, there were two different sites for breakfast I guess based on type of customer or room rate. We were assigned to a sinister, dirty old pub with red-painted walls. Two big plastic baby bathtubs were waiting at the entrance set to collect water from ceiling leakings. The area was attended by a group of youngsters (I have my doubts if some of them were +18) without any supervision while they 'delighted' us playing techno music while working. The improvised display of food and beverages were set with a total lack of hygiene measures (no roof-topped containers or cool-keepers). But the worst part was still to come: one of the young workers (identified as Jegor on his badge) started to throw up on the bar while trying to reach the waste bin at the other side. In the middle of the hurly-burly he kneed on the floor and kept on his vomiting there for disappearing into the back office right afterwards. He reappeared then in a question of seconds cleaning his own vomit and keeping his normal duties with the same gloves on as nothing. No need to say that we left the place immediately... I have a wide experience in hotels but this was by far the most surrealistic one ever.

Disappointing hotel
Hotel is a 3 stars for european standars. 4 stars just for the location. Standard room with nice view but bathroom a bit small and very basic. This is a big hotel so it is very busy at all times. Reception has 6 positions but only 2 are open some there are often queues expecially aroud 2 pm which is check in time. Lobby is usually very busy with guests hanging around. Breakfast is also manic not matter at what time you go and hard to find a table. Breakfast quality is standard and a bit ripetitive. Scrambled eggs very dry and needs improving.

Good location
Location is great, by the entrance to the old city, next to the Viru keskus shopping center. The A/C in the room worked horribly- a very cold air was blowing directly on the bunk bed and then in the middle of the night wasn’t blowing at all. The room had an awful smell of something like sewage or strong chemicals.
