A 19th-century hotel near Tallinn’s beautiful Old Town, with breakfast and a bottle of wine

The Lowdown

Situated within an easy amble of Tallinn’s UNESCO-listed mediaeval Old Town, the von Stackelberg Hotel can be found at the foot of beautiful Toompea Hill. 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. That’s not to say you won’t find modern comforts aplenty here, including a bathroom with Jacuzzi and heated floor, a flatscreen TV with satellite channels and high-speed internet.
Room amenities:- High-speed internet access- Flatscreen computers- Flatscreen TV with satellite channels- Coffee and tea facilities- Digital safe- Minibar- Air conditioning- Bathrobes and slippers- Bathroom with a Jacuzzi and heated floor- Toiletries


Limestone walls and wooden ceilings up the intimacy factor in Emmeline & Otto restaurant – named after Baron von Theophil von Stackelberg’s daughter and son. The menu emulates their passion for good food and good company, showcasing simple and delicious Estonian cuisine. If you visit during the warmer months, pick an al fresco table for dining in The Courtyard.


Make use of the hotel’s exposed brickwork- and Buddha-clad Zen-SPA, which features three welcoming treatment rooms, a Japanese sauna and ZEN pool. Round things off with a body, facial, hand or foot treatment, or a massage, using 100% natural SPA products.


Staying at the foot of Toompea Hill, you’ll be within strolling distance of Toompea Castle and Nevsky Cathedral. Venturing further into this Baltic capital city, you’ll discover a mesmerising mix of old and new, from polished shopping malls and inviting places to eat to baroque architecture and café-lined squares.

Very nice and unique hotel,but customer service could be better
Reviewed 5 days ago

The room was as good as expected,very nice and romantic,the spa experience was relaxing (massage),and the food was very good at restaurant (Otto and Emmelie). The knowledge of wines could be better at restaurant,otherwise service was polite and good.The receptionists need more customer service education,customer service was rude and unfriendly,when we checked in.Later the service got better,but didn`t exceed the level of 4 stars hotel.The breakfast had lots of different choices and was very good.

Historical, very fasinating Hotel with lovely rooms, high quality breakfast and sauna/spa. If you plan to spend time in Telliskivi, it’s a good choise For your stay. The employees though would have needed some customer Service/ customer experience training. When arriving, quite rude wellcoming for 6 persons. Points were imidiately dropped. Asked rooms to more quiet yard side (was fixed!), but our relaxing weekend night ended at 6 a.m when 2 caretaker guys started to plow the snow in the yard and you can imagine the noise when hitting the sandy asfalt with their Spades. That lasted one hour and nobody was sleeping. In the reception We kindly asked that is it really necessary to do that at weekends starting that early and the only answer was that ”they always start at that time and there’s nothing We can do”. Really? At least a sauna could have been easily be offered to compensate frustration of 6 people. Our gratest Thanks for the old gentleman in the reception who took care of our luggage storage. He was polite, nice and propably learned what is it to work in service sector!

Winter Break

Have just returned for a three night break at this hotel.
The hotel was a good location for us, just at the bottom of Toompea Hill so very good for exploring the old town.(It's only about ten minutes walk up the hill)
Lovely staff, they were welcoming on arrival and continued to be so throughout our stay.
We had a Zen room, nice size and the beds were really comfortable with nice linen and comfortable pillows. The room was lovely and warm and we overlooked the courtyard with a pretty Christmas tree. The room was nice and quiet and very clean. Bathrobes were an excellent touch too.
The spa bath was lovely but the bathroom was a little bit small and there wasn't enough space to put any toiletries (one very narrow glass shelf about the sink)
Would have been nice to have more coffee in the room and they did give us extra when we asked.
Breakfast was very good,very good selection and nice dining area.
The spa was very nice, sauna and steam room were lovely. Unfortunately the jacuzzi was on the cold side on both occasions we used it. You need to book an hour in advance but we never had a problem with getting the time we wanted and it was open until Midnight.
We got a taxi from and to the airport and its only a short trip. (We paid fifteen euro from the airport)The taxi the hotel ordered for us to go back to the airport was cheaper than the one we got from the rank outside the airport by quite a bit.
I would definitely get a taxi to and from the airport as its so easy and they drop you right outside the hotel, (a bonus in the snow) however there is a tram from the airport also and a bus service too.
I would stay at this hotel again if I returned to Tallinn
