Hotels in Tallinn

Tallinn is often described as a city of two faces, and that dual character is reflected in the hotel scene. In the Old Town, you’ll find a combination of quirky guesthouses housed in medieval terraces and high-class urban mansions, but just a five-minute stroll away is the steel-and-glass-dominated business district with its skyscraper chains and contemporary boutiques. If you favour old-world charm, the Hotel Telegraaf (Vene 9) with its famous spa is unbeatable. Nearby L’Ermitage Hotel (Toompuiestee 19) is an architectural work of art with a contemporary feel, while the equally stunning Baltic Hotel Vana Wiru (Viru 11) is a stylish budget option.

Shopping in Tallinn

With several futuristic malls, a growing menagerie of Estonian designer outlets and more souvenir shops than you can shake a stick at, Tallinn is an increasingly consumer-friendly city. Better still, despite the tourist influx of recent years it’s still possible to pick up luxury goods at appealing prices. Browse the shop windows in Viru and Müürivahe streets for big-name bargains, and don’t forget to check out the outdoor knit market that stretches along Müürivahe. It’s also worth investigating Estonian designer brands, such as Hula (Pikk 41), Kristiina Viirpalu (Suur-Karja 2) and Lilli Jahilo (Veerenni 24C), as well as the traditional souvenirs sold at the Estonian Handicraft House (Pikk 22).

Food & Drink in Tallinn

The medieval facade of Tallinn’s Old Town hides an incredible smorgasbord of diverse dining options. Cosy pubs such as the rustic Alfred’s (Rahumäe tee 25) rub shoulders with sophisticated ‘vinotheques’, the newest and trendiest additions to the city’s gourmet scene. Gloria Wine Cellar (Müürivahe 2), an elegant hideaway built right into the medieval town wall, is one of the best – it has the widest selection of vintages in the Nordic countries, so even dedicated wine connoisseurs should find something to tickle the palate. For a true taste of Tallinn though, head to Olde Hansa (Vana Turg 1). This medieval-themed restaurant is so fabulously authentic that it’s worth the stiff price tag.
