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.

How to Get There
Very cosy hotel. I stayed in the Standard Single room and had plenty of space. Very clean hotel and room. It's a smaller hotel so you don't feel lost walking in the halls. Very beautiful building though. Super close to the center of town and the Nevsky Cathedral. Maybe a 10 minute walk to the center (if that). But it's outside the center enough to be quiet and relaxing. Loved staying here!
The location is quit good, not so long walk to the old town. Several bus lines were very close. The room was clean and nice looking. Any noise didn´t disturb from outside. Breakfast was very good! Parking was easy and safe (behind the metal gate.
When we arrived, there was some confusion by a trainee with our booking and we had to book a new (budget) room on the spot. This was luckily easily resolved the next morning and we got a nice upgrade. During the stay my girlfriend got sick and the staff was very accommodating and helpful. We had to extend beyond our initial booking due to the sickness and based on the initial confusion we got a good deal on the next days.
The rooms are spacious. The beds are great. The location of the more "budget" offering is harder to find though. That could use some better signage so it's easily visible at night from the main entrance.
The pool is roughly the size you can see on the photos. It's good but small. The Spa itself does what it's supposed to do. All in order.
There's plenty of choice for the breakfast. I liked the welcoming drinks every morning (small smoothie of berry juice).
The location is close to the Old Town and it also has some good bus connections to the harbor for example.
