Many small reviews of The Von Stackelberg hotel can be found on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and other social media platforms.
Many people have said how much they loved their experience of staying at the hotel.
Booking.com users have given this property a very high score, though some have complained that the bathroom lacks sufficient amenities or that the bathtub is too high to easily step into. Some have even said the bathroom is too small. There are mixed reviews about the temperature, where some have said the rooms are cold, while others think they are too hot. Some have complained about the quality of images on the TV, though if you're in Tallinn, TV should be the last thing on your mind. Guests typically like the style of the hotel, its location, and the food. Some have remarked that the beds are very comfortable. Returning customers have left positive reviews as well, which is always nice. Angelos from Finland thinks the hotel has gotten even better since his last visit. Vladimir from Russia was thrilled with the private sauna, which is open to guests at night. Quite a few reviews note that there is an unbearable smell in the bathrooms. We aren't sure of the source of the problem. Perhaps the hotel has a medieval ghost who doesn't believe in ghostly bathing---anything is possible in Magic Tallinn! Finally, Anna recommends requesting a room with a view of the interior courtyard, while Elena said the hotel was perfect value for money. We hope that if you choose this hotel, you will encounter only great service from the professional staff, as many Booking.com users did.
The hotel's La Boheme Bar & Brasserie is a great place to meet friends, whether you are a tourist or a local.
Finnish blogger La Vida Loca stayed at the hotel with her mother. Her review is written in Finnish, but since Finnish and Estonian are part of the same language group, Estonians may be able to read and understand it well enough. La Vida Loca initially discusses whether she wants to stay at this hotel, noting that based on the photos, she loved the style of the bathroom. When she finally decided to stay at the Von Stackelberg, she wrote here that the hotel was stunning, but the service was sloppy. She complained that she was given the wrong room. She wanted two separate beds, but they gave her two single beds pushed together to form a double bed and were unwilling to change the room for her. Sadly, as a result of this experience, she won't return to this hotel but would still recommend it to others. If you visit the Von Stackelberg, be sure to remind them of this incident with La Vida Loca, as we feel they need to restore their reputation and apologize. They are truly a classy establishment and can ensure a happy end to this story, and we do believe in happy endings.
Generally, we prefer not to display YouTube videos that are only a compilation of official hotel photos, but this one is done rather well.
Frequent travelers who have seen many standard hotels will find The Von Stackelberg and hotels in Tallinn's Old Town are a welcome change.
The ZEN Spa is a major part of the Von Stackelberg experience. Here are some pictures of it in Flickr accounts.
Lastly, we recommend taking a look at this promotional video (or propaganda movie, if we use the terminology of Plutarch Heavensbee) on the ZEN Spa. It is in the Estonian language. We will leave it here because the video offers a full and accurate impression of the facility.
