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.

How to Get There
Beautifully restored old building - the architect did an excellent job!
The Zen room was very large and luxurious with a wonderful bed and all amenities.
Walking distance to the Toompea area; bus 40 is convenient for the historic center as well as the newer town.
Nice breakfast buffet including delicious fresh fruit juices. Outside patio with tables and umbrellas.
Entrance is not at street level - Outside stairs required to enter the lobby.
Very few restaurants in the immediate area. Hotel's Emmeline & Otto has a very limited menu and is expensive.
I stayed here for 2 nights with my two teenage sons at the end of our 10 day trip to the Baltics. We all agreed this was our favourite accommodation of the trip! This is a beautiful hotel situated just outside the Old Town within easy walking distance to the main sights.
We had a family room in the Carriage House just off the courtyard. The room was spacious and charming with traditional decor and very attractive. The double bed was very comfortable and there was a sofa bed for my son and a put up bed. So plenty of beds for all three of us! There was a kettle, small fridge and mini bar. The bathroom was lovely with a jacuzzi bath which the kids enjoyed.
Breakfast was lovely with a good variety of cereal, cooked items and pastries all served in a charming basement room.
The woman working on Reception was extremely helpful as were the porters.
A lovely stay in a great hotel- we only wish we could have stayed longer!
Our room was Zen deluxe, and it was perfect. We slept well, and the beds were also very comfortable. Breakfast was also good and tasty. Unfortunately we didn't have enough time to try The spa, but hopefully next time!
