Kalamaja was recently chosen to "The 20 most hipster neighbourhoods in the world" by Skyscanner. The area is undoubtedly popular among locals, but has even received a lot of publicity in foreign media and therefore attracts many tourists. Even The New York Times has discovered the best places in Kalamaja. I recommend you to take a walk in this beautiful wooden house area with bohemian charm. Just some 50 meters from the apartment you will find one of the most popular Cafés - Boheem. Some 4 minutes walk away you will find Telliskivi Design District where you can enjoy Estonian design, take a glimpse of retro furniture or visit one of the nice restaurants (affordable prices and great food).
Some 50 meters from the apartment you will even find a tram stop (Telliskivi). Take a tram to discover the rest of beautiful Tallinn. I recommend you to take tram no 1 to Kadriorg. In this magnificent district you will find many parks and gardens, KUMU art museum (recognized as best museum in Europe in 2008) and the Presidential Palace.
The medieval Tallinn Old Town is just 5 min walk away. Take a walk to discover this best preserved medieval old town in Northern Europe with its churches, cosy cafés and restaurants, museums and the great city wall.

In case you are not fluent in English, I also speak Swedish, Estonian and Russian.
Very cozy and modern apartment, very bright and impecable clean.
Spacious (enough for even practicing tango), functional and convenient. We cooked in the apartment very often and we had everything we needed in there.
Regarding location, it is in a quiet and relatively isolated area, however it is within a short distance walk to the old town and the train station. Also there is a supermarket just a block away, which was very convenient.
Johan was the best host, super friendly and providing us with very useful information material, and even welcome chocolates. Very good chocolates in fact :) At first I arrived at a very inconvenient hour and Johan was very flexible and helpful to provide the keys conveniently.
Thanks Johan for the opportunity to spend this wonderful time in Tallinn!
PS. And thanks also for the umbrella ;-)
Host Johan was out of town, and as I was late a friend of mine who was arriving at an earlier time than I , checked in with no problems. Good information was sent in advance..no problemo's!
Location was very good and in a nice neighborhood , close to tram, old town and a bunch of really good local restaurants and pubs.
Johan’s place was great – as described, clean, great location. Would definitely book it again! It’s simple and relatively small, but that’s as advertised. Johan was great at communicating, always replying quickly when needed, and then left us to enjoy Tallinn once he had made sure that we had arrived safely.
Unfortunately, there is nothing new I can add to the previous reviews. It is an amazing apartment with all the equipment you need! The location was also very nice. As for Johan, I did not have the chance to meet him in person, but he was always one message away when I had a question. He answered all my questions in a short time, and the places he recommended turned out to be awesome. Overall, on a scale from 1 to 10, I honestly think that even 10 is not enough for Johan and his apartment.
As you can see from the raving reviews, this place was just as advertised. I used the oven to make dinner one evening, and it functioned perfectly like everything else. One thing that I really appreciated was the fact that I could plug my MP3-player into the sound system that belongs to the TV. That way, I could listen to my own music. I met Johan when I handed over the keys at the end of my stay, and he was typically Estonian: friendly, super-efficient and equipped with perfect English skills, of course. I'm generally very impressed by Tallinn and will definitely come back in the summer. Hopefully, this lovely apartment will be available!
Спасибо Johan за гостеприимство! Квартира светлая, уютная и очень чистая. Есть всё необходимое. Недалеко от Старого города. В шаговой доступности кафе и супермаркет. Если мы приедем в Таллин, то обязательно остановимся у Johan.
The apartment was perfectly situated , very clean , comfortable and cosy. In addition to that Johan ( owner ) showed great hospitality , provided us with very useful information about the city and places to visit.I would highly recommend it to others and would be happy to stay there again. MANY thanks to Johan for being a great host and great person !
