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.
I will be delighted to give you more recommendations in order to plan your stay in Tallinn. In case I am not in Tallinn upon your arrival, you will be met by my friend who is a local guide in Tallinn so you will be taken care of!
In case you are not fluent in English, I also speak Swedish, Estonian and Russian.
Suurkiitos Johanille erinomaisesta majoituksesta. Yhteydenpito oli enisluokkaista ja olit hienosti laittanut valmiiksi suomenkieliset oppaat meille olohuoneen pöydälle. Kaikki toimi hienosti ja olit erittäin avulias ja ystävällinen. Suosittelen tätä kohdetta ystävilleni ja seuraalla kerralla yövyn mielelläni tässä asunnossa.
Johanista huomaa, että hän ammattinsakin puolesta pitää huolta asiakassuhteista. Kaikki yhteydenpito toimi erittäin hyvin enkä keksi mitään moitittavaa kokemuksestamme. Asunto on juuri sellainen kuin kuvauksessa oli kerrottu: selkeä, moderni, tyylikäs ja siisti. Viihdyimme mainiosti! Alue on rauhallinen ja silti lyhyen kävelymatkan päässä on oikeastaan kaikki mitä saattaa toivoa. Tulemme varmasti uudelleenkin.
My wife and I highly recommend this home. The owner, Johan, was a fantastic host. He spent a lot of time talking to us about the history of Estonia and Tallinn and was super easy-going. The home is in a perfect location...5 minutes walk to old town, busses, and trams. There is a full supermarket 3 minutes walk away and a beer/wine shop only a block further that sells Estonian beer. Internet and cable worked excellent and there are lots of windows to let in natural light. We would stay here again.
I have yet to meet a more accommodating host! Johan responded to e-mails and text messages within minutes, greeted us warmly at the apartment 6 hours before his usual check-in time and gave us maps and personal tips of restaurants and must-sees.
The apartment itself was in pristine condition and had all the necessary facilities. Everything we needed was within walking distance. It is located five minutes west of Old town and five minutes north of the heart of Kalamaja.
I will surely recommend friends who are going to Tallinn to contact Johan and rent this apartment!
Johan var en jättebra värd och lätt att kontakta. Han svarade ju också omgående=väldigt uppskattat! Beskrivningen var 100% korrekt. Omgivning var inte så högprio den fick vi ju se på (email hidden)n den var skön blandad med gammalt o nytt.
Penthouse was perfect. Perfect location and perfect condition. Johan has made good job and he is very friendly and helpful. I am more than sure that i will be back in Johans place soon. Thank you and all the best.
