On the lovely cobbled streets of Tallinn's Old Town – Estonia’s capital and a UNESCO World Heritage Site – you’ll find the rather grand Hotel St Petersbourg.
The building dates back to the 14th-century, making it officially the oldest hotel in Estonia, but recent renovations in 2014 have kept things up to date. Gilded mirrors and velvet textures combined with modern paintings and kooky light fittings give this hotel a lovely old-world feel with a refreshing contemporary twist.
A buffet breakfast is included in most room rates (check details below). The hotel has two restaurants to choose from – The Hermitage in the hotel itself, which serves great Russian cuisine, or The Golden Piglet (just down the road) which serves fine Estonian dishes.
The hotel bar is ideal for a cosy wine in the colder, snowy months.
The hotel has 27 bedrooms, with each step up offering a bit more space than the last.
The building’s grand old age means there’s no lift in this hotel, so we’d recommend asking for a ground floor room for the less mobile. As the hotel is located right in the centre of Tallin, it’s worth noting however that some of these rooms can get a touch noisy.
The hotel boasts a sauna with a beautiful view of the Old Town’s red rooftops as well as a range of spa treatments – but it’s worth noting that these are not included with the room prices.
Tallinn is one of the best preserved medieval cities in Europe and hotel St Petersbourg is right in its centre – only a stone’s throw from the Town Hall Square and the rest of this historic city. The neighbouring beer hall is also a great street-side spot to sink a few local brews.
