Swissotel Tallinn (Tallinn)
Swissotel Tallinn
by Dmitrii Siling
The Swissotel is a high-quality hotel found in the middle of Tallinn business district. The location is important not only for the convenience of reaching all the best attractions but also for the magnificent panoramic views afforded by the hotel rooms overlooking different parts of Tallinn and the Gulf of Finland.

The hotel itself is not in an overcrowded spot, there are fewer tourists out here and you'll be able to have a nice stroll in the modern part of Tallinn, but most guests will prefer to make the 10-minute walk to the Old Town.

If you're travelling with young children and need extra supplies, clothing, or toiletries, there are plenty of retail stores nearby selling high-quality brands to meet those needs.

The spa area for hotel guests, Purovel Spa and Sport, is both comfortable and functional. There is a small fitness center on site, as well as a sauna and a small indoor pool.

The Horisont Restaurant offers excellent food but as a result of its popularity with business travelers and the locals, it can be difficult to get a reservation. The Swiss café offers a smaller choice of dishes but is also very good. If all you need is a quiet place to drink some coffee and talk with business partners or colleagues, the lobby bar is an excellent venue.

Location
Located in a central part of the city, Swissotel is close to all manner of stores, such as Stockmann, Viru Keskus, Kaubamaja, and Solaris, and cinemas such as Solaris and Coca-Cola Plaza.

Numerous dining establishments are scattered throughout the area, but most guests will prefer to make the 10-minute walk to Old Town, which has the best restaurants and bars in town. Solaris and Viru Keskus do feature some popular dining spots though, and these tend to be much cheaper than those in Old Town. It makes for a nice change of pace from the hotel's dining options.

REVIEWS
Booking.com users have generally left favorable reviews of Swissotel Tallinn, awarding it an overall 9 out of 10 stars. This may come as a surprise for the more discerning guests. Reviewers typically mention the gym, pool, and quality of food as points in its favor, although one person rightfully acknowledged that the gym could stand to be larger. Guests also enjoy the view of the city and sea from the rooms, which only improves the pricier the rooms get. The location is also seen as a good base for getting around. Negative reviews tend to focus on the attitude of the staff, who seem to give more attention to their Facebook updates than to visitors. This is often a common complaint for hotels that employ young hospitality workers. There are also a few reviews that praise the staff, especially the cleaning crew, so it's not all bad. The hotel features generally high quality facilities, kept in good condition, leading many guests to praise the beds, pillows, bathrooms, working area, style, and decor.

Anne from Amsterdam, who kept her surname private, runs a travel website that features a review of her stay at Swissotel. She enjoyed her stay, noting that the location was perfect, the staff were friendly, and the service was excellent. A photo from the sauna is included with the review, as seen in this link. The window in the Swissotel sauna is one of its best features.

Luxurytravelmagazine made note of Swissotel Tallinn winning Estonia's Leading Hotel award. The globally recognized World Travel Awards results were based on an independent vote by 185,000 travel agents and tourism professionals from more than 200 countries.

This five out of five stars review of Swissotel at Reijosfood.com features some authentic photos of the Swiss Executive room, which the reviewer thought was quite spacious and stylish. There are also photos of the public spaces. The reviewer makes the claim that guests may enjoy spending their entire vacation within the hotel, moving between the spa, room, cafe, gym, restaurant, and bar. The view from the large windows allows people to claim they had also been sightseeing.

Another complimentary review of Swissotel was written by Adam from PointMeToThePlane, who noted he was visiting Estonia for the third time and was very happy with the hotel. He stayed in the Swiss Executive Room, which along with the bathroom he found to be very modern and comfortable. He said he liked the location and was impressed with the hotel's proximity to a convenient grocery store. On his website are photos of the snacks served in the Executive Lounge.

Damian of Upgrd.com wrote an interesting review that features numerous photos of the hotel and breakfast buffet. These are interesting since there aren't too many of them being displayed on social media.
