The former city estate of the German-Baltic Baron von Stackelberg provides the perfect city base with beautifully refurbished 19th-century interiors, a cosy Lobby Bar and spacious guestrooms.
After a day wandering the streets of this charming and colourful city, you’ll be able to soothe sightseeing weary muscles at the ZEN-Spa by ridding your body of toxins in the Japanese sauna, wiling away an hour in the soothing Jacuzzi or treating yourself to an aromatherapy massage in one of three stylish treatment rooms. At Emmeline & Otto restaurant, the emphasis is on simple and delicious Estonian fare, and there’s a courtyard for al fresco dining during the warmer months.
ZEN rooms at the von Stackelberg Hotel provide guests with space for interrupted R&R, with natural furnishings, exposed stonework and rich dark wood furniture.

How to Get There
Air conditioning making loud sudden noises throughout the night.Otherwise quite perfect, we had a Zen Deluxe room with a romance packet. The spa was wonderful to have for just the two of us. Also the jacuzzi in our room was super.
The hotel is in a former mansion house, around a central courtyard and a converted stables block. It is just outside the old town castle area of Tallinn, with a 10 minutes walk (up a hill) getting you there with no complications. Although situated on a busy road and with our room facing this road directly, we had no problem with street noise: instead, we had a great view up the hill to the start of the old town.
The welcome was very friendly and helpful, and all subsequent dealings with the staff left a very good impression on me. The room was lovely, as was the bathroom. We had a zen room.
The breakfast was excellent, with constantly attentive staff and a great choice of food - nothing seemed to run out and there was a chef permanently available.
There is a small car park, made even smaller by some work being done in it. The entry to the car park took a little bit of finding due to the one way system.
I would love to return to this hotel if / when I am in Tallinn again.
Might be better, might be cleaner and the staff should be more polite. Location is perfect, breakfast is rich. The courtyard is very cozy. Hotel offers two parkings, the cheaper one can be full, but the staff doesn’t mind to check it.
This hotel was a real surprise—nicely located on the edge of a beautiful park and central to walk everywhere. The spa was a great experience, and the bed was one of the better hotel beds I’ve slept in!
We had a wonderful stay at the von Stackelberg Hotel in Tallinn in March. Our room was lovely and full of character, and despite it being very much so below zero, we were nice and warm. The breakfast was possibly my favourite hotel breakfast buffet I have ever had - it really had everything. Highlights were the delicious smoked salmon and the cakes and pastries. I really enjoyed it every morning and it negated our need to stop for lunch in the afternoon. The location of this hotel is excellent, we walked everywhere throughout our trip (often in thick snow!!) and didn't use public transport at all. All the staff were really helpful and friendly. I have no complaints at all! If I return to Tallinn I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again, and I always advise friends and family who are considering visiting the city to stay here. For a city centre hotel of this standard, it is incredibly cheap. As a Brit, I would call this a budget hotel price with an obvious 4* standard. I'm not sure if it is considered quite so cheap by local standards, but it is certainly very affordable. Thank you for a lovely time :)
