Dmitrii Siling
on The Merchant’s House

The Merchant's House impressed me with its style and charm. It's so steeped in history, that it's almost like taking a step back in time to the medieval ages. Each room features plenty of wood and other natural elements, giving it a very rustic feel. You will receive excellent service from the staff. The sauna is free, and the restaurant offers delicious meals. The only down side you can find is the noise factor, which is part and parcel of living in the center of Old Town, which is itself extremely popular among tourists.

The Brasserie

Guests have left a number of reviews talking about the fabulous buffet breakfast which is available at the Brasserie on a daily basis. The buffet is open on weekdays between 7 am to 10.30 am and from 7.30 am to 11 am on weekends. Guests who do not want to come down from breakfast also have the option of ordering room service which starts from 7 am.

Guests are usually able to have a lot of privacy in these rooms and can order either European cuisine with an Estonian flavor or international cuisine as the restaurant was set up by a chef from the U.K.

The Courtyard Cafe

This is a popular hangout for guests as it’s a cool place to hangout and have a drink in the courtyard, have an alfresco lunch or an early dinner. During summer, the café also sets up a few tables outside the hotel in a small area on Dunkri street and a lot of tourists and visitors love to grab a table and have a quick bite.

There are a number of well known food places on Dunkri street such as the Kuldse Notsu Korts, Korsaar, Hermitage and the popular Beer House which poses a lot of competition for the restaurants in Merchant’s House and sometimes makes it hard for the hotel to get regular customers to dine in.

The Ice Bar

This small bar is famous for serving its drinks in Ice glasses which are a big hit in the summer. The bar has a small lobby area and is open from 10 am to midnight from Sunday to Thursday and from 10 am to 2 am on Friday’s and Saturdays.

Some of the rooms available include the standard single, standard double, standard twin, executive double, suite and the presidential suite. The pictures published on the internet do not do justice to the hotel as users who have stayed at the hotel have stated that the rooms are much more spectacular than the pictures.

Children under 12 years are allowed to stay free of charge. There are also baby cots available and extra costs available at an extra charge. Most of the rooms do not have strong wifi connections due to the medieval walls and their thickness. The hotel has made arrangements for broadband connections to be made available in all rooms.

Historic and stylish

A combination of old classic styles and contemporary styles. The properties include hidden staircases, a medieval facade, hand-painted fresco molds, and fully restored fireplaces.

Excursions, tickets and transfers

There's a cathedral offering religious services about 400 metres away from the hotel. Since the reception desk is open 24 hours a day, guests can make travel plans, buy tickets, engage the airport shuttle, or obtain information on tourist attractions at their convenience. An entire day trip can be planned, with a special packed lunch ready to go on request.

Good to stay with the kids

Hotel guests who have young children in tow but need to leave them in capable hands for the afternoon can make use of the in-house babysitting services. Children's Playground is also available.

Business facilities

Merchant's House, with its many amenities and proximity to the center of town, is an excellent choice for businesspeople, boasting a fully equipped business center and meeting room facilities.

Pedestrian street

The hotel rooms provide guests with a fantastic view of the old town of Tallinn. The hotel is situated on a pedestrian street which means that cars cannot drive up to the hotel but must stop at the Rataskaevu plats. Guests will have to take a short walk from there with their luggage to the hotel which shouldn’t be a problem in summer but could be difficult in the freezing winters. However winter brings with it a fairytale Christmas experience and the short walk should not deter someone from enjoying a fabulous time in Tallinn.
