Review: Hotel L´Ermiritage Tallinn, Estonia
On my recent trip to Tallinn (my first trip to Tallinn ever, more about things to do and see in Tallinn and the Tallinn Card here), I stayed at Hotel L´Ermiritage for three nights, and love to sum up my experiences.
Hotel L´Ermiritage Location
L´Ermitage is a very charming and lovely 4* hotel in Tallinn, located very close to the Old Town. Since the old town is probably the most popular place in Tallinn the hotel is a great choice for tourist.
I took a taxi from the airport and paid only around 10€ for the ride (including tip). A bus stop is very close to the hotel, but there is no direct connection, neither to the harbor nor to the airport, which means to change buses (which can be a bit annoying with luggage).

Rooms at Hotel L´Ermiritage
The hotel itself has 91 standard rooms, several businesses, and superior rooms as well as some suites.
I stayed at Hotel L´Ermiritage for three nights and when I checked in, I was told that I got an upgrade which was a pleasant surprise :)). The Junior Suite is located on the 6.th floor. Though, it does not have a great view I enjoyed the room as there was a big tub, an extra living room with huge TV, a coffee maker, and a big Kingsize bed with another TV in the sleeping room.
I think, this room would have been my sister´s dream because the first thing she does when in a hotel is to check out the iron etc. and in this case, it also offered a clothing line etc. I was out most of the time and did not spend too much time at the hotel I enjoyed the spacious room.
Hotel L´Ermiritage Tallinn has one restaurant, which I did n0t try – Restaurant L´Ermiritage. The setting looked lovely, though, and the prices on the menu seemed very reasonable. After spending much time in Switzerland everything seems affordable, but since I spent quite some time outside the hotel I did not have time to eat at the hotel. However, I had breakfast there three times.
Breakfast at L´Ermiritage
The hotel was quite busy when I was there so the breakfast room was busy, too. There were two rooms for the guests but they offered the same. The breakfast itself was quite good, including some warm, hearty and healthy food (no Nutella, which I only eat when in hotels). I could not identify all the food and its ingredients, and not all staff spoke English, but I think there were also a couple of typical Estonian food, which included seafood which I do not eat as a vegetarian.
Spa at L´Ermiritage
Before checking-in, I was thinking to hit the spa one time (I normally only use the whirlpool and not the sauna at a spa). However, since I had such a huge bathtub myself, I stuck to it and did not check out the spa. It was also a little unusual for me that there were extra charges for using the wellness area, which also was not very cheap. 2 hours spa starts from 35€.
I really enjoyed my time at Hotel L´Ermiritage Tallinn. Most of all, I appreciated the proximity to the old town (walking distance about 5 minutes) as it was super convenient. Since the old town is one of the must-see places in Tallinn, I could not have asked for a better place to stay. A direct bus connection to the airport and the harbor (I did a day trip to Helsinki via ferry, more about a day trip to Helsinki from Tallinn here) would have topped everything.
It was a very pleasant stay, and I never encountered any problems. Also, the staff was friendly and the location perfect and I can definitely recommend it and would love to come back.
