Luxury at St. Petersbourg Hotel, Tallinn

Tallinn, Estonia

Just a stone’s throw from the main square, tucked away between the cobblestone streets of the Old Town lies St. Petersbourg hotel. What’s really unique about this place – besides the fact that you feel like you just stepped into a Russian time warp – is that it’s the oldest hotel in Tallinn. The history of the hotel building dates back to the 14th century, and the owners have managed to keep the authentic feel, but with a modern twist.

THE CLASSY ROOM

My room was on the second floor and it had a cosy, romantic ambience. The bed was extremely comfortable with a chunky fur blanket and you just wanted to jump right in and snuggle up. So that’s exactly what I did!

There was plenty of wardrobe space, free bottled water was brought daily as was a newspaper, there was an iPad available to use with free Wi-Fi, and the room was very light.

A HOTEL WITH CHARACTER

The St. Petersbourg hotel itself is lovely. The decor suited it perfectly and the Russian imperial style added lots of charm. There’s a sauna and masseuse there too, but I didn’t have time to visit either.

KULDSE NOTSU KORTS – ESTONIAN RESTAURANT

Kuldse Notsu Kõrts – price range: €13-20 for a main course

St. Petersbourg hotel has two restaurants, which also happen to be two of the top-rated restaurants in Tallinn. Kuldse Notsu Kõrts (The Golden Piglet Inn) is a rustic village-like restaurant located in the cellar with wooden tables and chairs. It serves traditional Estonian food like sausages, herring, meat and homemade cheese.

THE HERMITAGE – RUSSIAN RESTAURANT

The Hermitage – price range: €15-26 for a main course

The other restaurant is Russian, hence the name: The Hermitage. It’s a fancy, but cosy and modern restaurant where you can get Russian dishes like borsch, chicken Kiev, beef stroganoff and Siberian dumplings.

I had my favorite meal in Tallinn right here. The prices are a little higher compared to Estonian standards (20€ for the meal below), but the food and service is worth every penny!

Five-star hotel: Perfect for a romantic getaway or a luxurious stay.

Prices: Rooms for two range from $120 for a standard room to $330 for a suite. View             all prices here.

Best time to visit: The hotel is open all year, but Tallinn is best to visit in the                                 spring and summer when temperatures are higher.

I was a guest of St. Petersbourg Hotel, Tallinn, but all opinions are my own. Whenever I write a hotel review, there will always be full disclosure about whether my stay was hosted by the hotel or paid for with my own money. And even if the hotel decides to offer complimentary services, my review will never be swayed one way or the other.

What do you think? Is this your type of hotel?

      Yes, isn’t it? I definitely got a little preview of Russia at this hotel. I went to St. Petersburg afterwards and it was mind blowing! I hope you get to see it too.
