This atmospheric apartment is situated on a very quiet cobblestone street, just one hundred meters from the old town square in medieval Tallinn. You could not be more central.
The apartment offers a large and attractive terrace, and the main bedroom that overlooks an inner courtyard, has a large and very romantic open fireplace .
We also have a single bedroom that looks out onto the terrace, a large kitchen with dinning table and a beautifully detailed bathroom with bathtub and washing machine. It is wifi connected.
An abundance of museums, old churches and restaurants are just minutes away. The Holy Ghost church, a medieval building (parts of the construction date from the 13th century) is to be found at the top of our street, as is the Tallinn city museum, housed in a 14th century merchants dwelling. Located at bottom of our quiet meandering cobblestone way is the hotel Schloessle a 5 star accommodation.
And just in case you thought Tallinn was only meant to be visited in the summer, I would like to reveal to you that during its dark and snowy months, Tallinn is one of the most romantic cities in Europe. Candle lighted cafes, an abundance of open fires in warm and welcoming restaurants, lively bars. Fewer tourists.
Autumn also brings the Dark Nights Film Festival, an international collection of some of the best and most talked about films of the year. A highlight for all of Scandinavia, and every theater in walking distance from the apartment.
It is also signal for the beginning of the music season. A time of chamber recitals, concerts and opera.
And as Christmas approaches, so does the construction of the Christmas Market in the Old Town Square. Said to be one of the best, if not the best market in all of Europe. Unique and finely crafted gifts are in abundance, as is gluh wine and Christmas cheer.
Respect the neighbours and have a good time
Tallinn is a fairy tale town, and everything you see is old and beautiful. We didn't want the sightseeing to end when we retired to our lodgings, and this apartment fulfilled that desire. You get to feel the old town experience every moment of your stay! Also, this apartment could not be more centrally located. We were so pleased to be always so near to the apartment no matter where we went, so that ducking in to warm up a bit or change clothes was always quick and easy. You don't feel like you have to think about it, what you bring with you or don't, you just pop out for a coffee and if you need to rearrange yourself before heading to an attraction, you pop back into the apartment. Totally stress-free. We were really happy with our choice to stay here. A couple of evenings we sat and enjoyed the fire without any lights on, imagining ourselves living here centuries ago, which was lovely and romantic. Plus, there's a 24-hr shop half a block away that sells firewood, so you can restock easily enough. The cafes and restaurants are not only abundant, but all that we visited had quality foods and coffee. You are at all times a 5 to 10 minute walk from something delicious, and the decor is tasteful and old-timey at most every place. If you want to be absolutely immersed in a fairy tale land of winding cobblestone streets, alleys, arches, and passageways, lined with historic architecture, this apartment will help you have that experience. We loved our stay! 3
The host was great, kind and helpful. All of our questions and wishes were were satisfied fast and careful.
The flat itself it the great opportunity to have Tallinn not only outside but also inside. Old-styled walls with pieces ob ancient construction make this feeling real. Fireplace is great! It is huge and works properly.
Location is also perfect. Just several steps to the town-hall square.
Хозяева были очень добры и дружелюбны. Все наши вопросы и пожелания были удовлетворены более чем польностью.
Таллин чувствуется даже когда вы находитесь внутри этой квартиры (а не только снаружи). Стены стилизованы под старину, местами сохранены исторические конструкции. Камин - отличный! Очень большой но при этом не дымит абсолютно.
Место расположения тоже идеально, буквально несколько шагов до ратушной площади.
The appartment is very nice and cosy, the fireplace is charmful! We had everything we required for our four-days stay in Tallin. The appartment has very good location, just in the center of the old town, the supermarket is just 100 meters away. The appartment is highly recommended for staying to visit Tallin and sightseeing.
We were guests from 5 to 8 December. Totally fascinated with the Christmas Tallinn. The apartment is very well located, very warm, clean and comfortable. We felt very comfortable. Special comfort gives the fireplace. To describe it is impossible, it is necessary to feel. Thank you very much organized flexible time entry and exit. Will gladly come back again to admire the old Tallinn!
Мы были гостями с 5 по 8 декабря. Совершенно очарованы рождественским Таллинном. Апартаменты прекрасно расположены, очень теплые, чистые и уютные. Мы чувствовали себя очень комфортно. Особенный уют придает наличие камина. Описать это невозможно, это необходимо чувствовать. Большое спасибо, что организовано гибкое время въезда и выезда. С удовольствием вернемся, чтобы вновь любоваться старым Таллинном!
Me and my friends stayed here for a weekend at November and enjoyed our stay very much. The apartment was very cosy, clean, warm and comfortable and just like we expected. Location was perfect. We are definitely coming back here. Me and my friends recommend this apartment warmly!
Late arrival was no problem, the flat was really, really nice, and tidy and clean as well. Had a perfect weekend, thanks!

I am an Australian writer living in both Estonia and the Netherlands. I wrote my first book while living in an old schoolhouse in the Estonian countryside. Estonia, then newly independent from the Sovjet Union, made such a deep and hopeful impression on me, that I decided to buy an apartment in Tallinn so that I would always have a home whenever I returned.
Because my work often takes me to Australia and Latin America, I am in Estonia infrequently these days, and when that is the case, guests will be received by my Estonian friend Anu Liibek.
