The Center Hotel Is Central, Only…

FullSizeRender (5)

If you’ve been reading my blog, you know I’m not too picky when it comes to where I stay on my travels. Unfortunately this one in Tallinn barely makes the cut. Yes, it’s cheap, it’s centrally located, it’s clean, but the overall vibe is kind of “off”… Arriving at the entrance was the first hint of this not going down as the perfect choice. Front desk area didn’t help either – kind of makeshift. Staff seemed polite though, but I didn’t need much help as I had my own, personal tourist information (read: local friend 🙂 ). The hallways felt a bit…uninhabited?, and rooms are very basic – like, is this a hotel room…? For luggage storage they have luggage lockers, like at train stations, so no room for suitcases. However, adding to the positives: it didn’t feel unsafe, it’s situated just a couple of blocks away from major traffic hub, old town and shopping centres, and the breakfast was a good surprise – actually impressive, considering the standard of the hotel. Despite the negatives outweighing the positives, after the initial “shock” this became home as well.

    • Used to spend a lot more time on researching hotels, but now I (mostly) find one that looks ok and book it. There are sooo many hotels to choose from, that I’ll never finish. Now I’m also less picky, because I’ve travelled a lot more, and I’ve realised I don’t need much to be content.

    • Exactly 🙂 I knew it was going to be basic, just not as basic as it was. When I went to my room, my Estonian friend joined me, we both just stood there with an expression of Ok… on our faces 🙂

    • I am really not picky when it comes to hotels – I rather spend money on stuff to do, buy, eat – but this one was probably one of the most basic ones I’ve ever stayed at, and I’ve stayed at a few 😀 I would think as I got older I would be more concerned about the places I stay – apparently not 🙂

  1. Looks extremly basic, even for an Eastern European hotel. I’m sure there are some better choices in the city. Nevertheless, thank you for your review 🙂

Love to hear your comment :)
