    Hotelli sijaitsee hyvällä paikalla, bussiyhteys uudehkoon ostoskeskukseen hyvä. Viru ostoskeskuksen läheisyys erinomainen asia, kauneushoitolan läheisyys on hyvä. Aamiainen ok, leipävalikoima voisi olla monipuolisempi.

    location - best to survive a night in Tallin

    bathroom below standard (fungus on the shower walls), unpleasant smell in the room, breakfast below average standard fot this theoretical class of hotel

    Superb

    This is a very large hotel with no surprises. Their guests are families and teenagers, no business men. In public areas the hotel is very busy and not very quiet, but my room was completely silent. Everything works as expected. My room was efficiently air-conditioned (this facility was not mentioned in the hotel description). Breakfast is excellent for families. It seems that you are allowed to take a guest to your room before 10 pm without notifying the staff. Free wifi internet works excellent. Bathroom is newly renovated, clean and nice. My room was perfect.

    The hotel has some kind of healthiness- / beauty-center, but there is no gym or other training facilities. They advertised for "one night extra stay" for 50 eur, but when I got my bill the extra night I stayed there was for the original (higher) price.

    The staff were very friendly and helpful most especially in the restaurant and bar. Check out was quick and efficent.

    I know it is supposed to be 4 star but I found everything to have a cheap appearance. This ranged from plastic (leather look alike) chairs in the lobby to cheap toilet paper. I had also booked a superior double and was given a twin and told they did not have a double available.

    The price is pretty cheap, but if you want to enjoy your trip, book a hotel from the Old Town (Vanalinn). Sokos Hotel Viru is your typical "S- Etukortti" hotel, in both good and bad. The location is good, pretty much everything is within walking distance.

    The breakfast is pretty stale, if you get there 1030 (closes at 1100). The overall appearance is clean, but the hotel has seen its best days. Not recommended for business travellers. Also the wlan can be a bit unstable, especially on higher floors.

    Very good

    Excellent location near the old town. It's hard to get lost after a night on the town as you can usually see the hotel towering in the distance. It's attached to a shopping mall with a supermarket in the basement. Friendly staff. Pretty good buffet breakfast. Amarillos is a good bar/restaurant in the hotel. The other bar was dead one night and full of old business guys the other. Nice view from the room. Really fast elevators.

    No safe in the room. No mineral water provided for free. The restaurant charges 4 euros for room service charge. I had a double room and the walls weren't straight in the room so the bed actually sat fairly crooked which was weird. There is a tv in the room but there aren't any channels provided for free. The room only had two jacks for plugging things in and neither were near the bed for those that like to use a laptop or iphone in bed. For those that would be interested, we saw an older gentleman in a suit get stopped at reception one night for trying to bring a "lady" back to his room.

    Very good

    It is a very "normal" Sokos-hotel = you know, what you get.

    It took almost 40 minutes to get through to reception for check-in. It was around 2:30 pm, when I arrived and there were at least 80 people in front of me willing to do the check in. Breakfast is very industrial.
