Rataskaevu guest apartment in the centre of historical old town of Tallinn

A very well equipped apartment in a great location

  • 4 of 5

A huge apartment in nice condition. Two good sized bedrooms, a sitting room, bathroom and one of the best equipped kitchens I've seen in a holiday rental! The location is extremely convenient, right in the old town and just a few mins walk from the main square. You can sit having your breakfast watching the cruise ship tourists walk past below your window. There are several nice restaurants in Rataskaevu street itself. The owners live next door, so if you have any problems they are on hand. Good wi-fi signal. The only (small) problem was that it was noisy until about 2-3am on Friday and Saturday night, as people were sitting and chatting in the small grassy square just opposite (and one of the bedroom windows couldn't be closed). Despite this, it was an excellent choice, and very reasonably priced. Thank you to Risto and family.

Large, comfortable apartment in Tallinn Old Town

  • 5 of 5

This place is hard to beat, spacious, comfortable and reasonably well equipped, it would easily accommodate 4 people in a superb Old Town Tallinn location. The owners live next door and were discrete but there when needed. Plenty of good food shopping nearby for those who like to cook in. No more hotels for us on a multi day stay, we prefer to live like locals.

Comfortable, clean apartment with central location

  • 5 of 5

First time to Tallinn and we will definitely be coming back!

All arrangements went smoothly and we were greeted on arrival and given 2 sets of keys. The apartment is spacious and well equipped and was spotlessly clean. The road (Rataskaevu) is an excellent one to stay in, as it's 5 minutes walk to the central square and Rataskaevu itself contains several fabulous restaurants - we loved Von Krahli Aed, Rataskaevu 16 and Scheeli (on the way to the square). The apartment looks out onto the Niguliste church where there is an amazing Dance of Death painting from the 15th century. It's only a few minutes walk to the medieval walls and a range of interesting shops. Free walking tours start from outside the Tourist Office, 2 minutes from the apartment.

The owner lives next door so any questions or issues can be sorted out straight away. There is some noise from revellers if you're there on a Friday night, but I guess that would be the same at any central location.

Thank you Risto for a great stay!

Clean and well equipped flat with super location right next to St Nicolas Church. Owner was helpful and the care taker is the neighbour and we felt very comfortable during our stay. We were on the ground floor and we could see people going around the street, but they could not see us because of the good blind curtain. Since it was located in the middle of the old town we were a little bit concerned about noises but we were not bothered with noises except only Saturday night. Plenty of hot water and easy to handle electric heater. We will come back again.

Fantastic apartment in the middle of the old town

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is simply perfect! Extremely well equipped and although we were only two people (brother and sister!) it would easily and comfortably accommodate four.

It was far more spacious than we had thought, and in a superb location. We must have walked past it four times a day on our way round and round Tallinn!

There is an excellent supermarket which really does have everything you could need about a three minute walk away and there are simply more restaurants, bars and cafes than you would imagine possible within a very short walking distance.

The apartment was spotlessly clean and the direction perfect. We were met on our arrival and given two sets of keys which is always a huge bonus. There was even a washing machine!

I simply couldn't fault our stay and will recommend it to everyone I know!

Cosy apartment in the heart of the Old Town

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in this clean comfortable apartment over Easter 2016. We found it warm (outside temperatures varied between zero and 12 celsius during our stay) and spacious, with all the things we needed (cable tv, hairdryer, cooking utensils etc). The landlord’s family lived in the flat next door and were unfailingly helpful and courteous in dealing with our queries. We had wanted an apartment because there was a small group of us and we felt it would give us more flexibility. We were very happy with our choice of accommodation and would recommend it to anyone.

The city centre is about five kms from the airport. The number two bus (eleven minute journey) costs 2 euros, although this means walking the last kilometre.

The apartment is within the Old Town so nothing is very far away. The only time we found this a disadvantage was on the Friday night when people were walking past, chattering, in the early hours. The Solaris shopping centre is nearby, and has a large grocery store as well as clothes shops, eateries and a cinema showing English language films.

Our first full day in Tallinn was a Monday, when many of the attractions are closed. The Information Centre (very close by) recommended the free walking tour run by local students, which takes place daily from outside the Info Centre, from 12 noon. We found this a highlight of our stay. The tour, by Martin, lasted two hours, and covered all the main buildings of the Old Town, and taking us up Toompea Hill to get good views of the skyline. Martin told us anecdotes about the history of the Estonian people. I have been on ‘free tours’ before (Paris), which were fairly bland, and followed by a hard sell for tips. This was nothing like that; I really felt Martin was very informative, and genuinely delighted if anyone gave him a tip at the end.

On other days we visited the city walls, the city museum, and ventured further afield to the Open Air Museum (only partially open in the winter, and quite muddy, but interesting) and Kadriorg Park (Palace of Peter the Great). Best of all was the Museum at Sea Plane Harbour which had a real submarine and ice breaker ship to visit.

We found restaurants in Tallinn mostly good. We missed a trick in not checking Tripadvisor until a few days into our stay, when we found that the top rated restaurant was just over the road at 16 Rataskaevu. It was fully booked. Our best (and cheapest) meal was probably in The Dubliner, just outside the city walls.
