Less than 500 m to public transportation (street-car, bus, train - all the lines in Tallinn), restaurants, museums, cinemas and shopping. 7 min walk to Kalev SPA if you like swimming and sauna. Like jogging? - Green belt around Old Town is just 200 m from door for jogging or walking.
Fresh bagels can be bought in several neighbouring buildings. Superb modern Estonian, Italian, Russian kitchen are almost next door.

About shopping: 24h store is only 30m away, supermarkets about 5 minutes (Selver, Rimi), shopping malls are within 10 minutes walking distance (Viru Keskus, Solaris).
Public transportation is within 5 minutes walk. Bus, tram, trolley, train. All the lines in Tallinn. You can arrive by car and do the loading for free. Long-time parking in Old Town is metered 24 hours. Me and my friends park our car 5-10 minutes walk away where parking is free. There are also several private parking grounds and houses nearby.
Best and most convenient to arrive from coach station, harbour or airport is by taxi. The fee from and to airport and coach station should be around 10 € (depending on the time and traffic), harbour is app 8 €. Pick Tulika Takso or slightly more expensive Tallink Takso. Ask for the receipt.
The harbour is 20 minutes walk. Train station is 550 meters away (about 6 minutes walk).
When coming by public transportation: From Airport you need to take bus nr 2.
and to the stop A.Laikmaa and then about 10 minutes walk. You can find timetables (website hidden)/en (languages: ee en ru de lt lv )
For Taxi: I can suggest TULIKA (tel: (phone number hidden) or 1200) and Tallink (tel (phone number hidden) or 1921). Tallink is slightly more expensive than Tulika. Always ask for receipt.
Budget brand of Tallink is Takso24 and you can call no 1224.
Other Things to Note
Some of my guests have asked for a help to see more of Tallinn and Estonia than the Old Town.
I am happy to give you a short tour by car in Tallinn or take you out for a day trip to North or West Coast to my favourite places - hiking trails, historic places and restaurants. Just let me know what you are interested in and we can set the route and the budget.
Few easy rules to follow:
No smoking in the apartment.
Nordic house rule; we do not use outdoor shoes inside, please remove upon entering
Clean after yourself and keep place clean on your part. Please leave the apartment as clean as it was when you arrived.
Do not leave surfaces wet (bathroom, kitchen etc) - water damages are time-consuming and very expensive to repair.
For dust control there is a Samsung Navibot robotic vacuum-cleaner - help it by pushing the start button once in a while.
I'm very careful with my belongings, so I highly appreciate your respect and appreciation for other peoples belongings. When something breaks or gets dirty please inform me so I can take care of it before next guests arrive or let them now beforehand.
I have some emergency food in the cupboards. Feel free to use but please do no leave cupboards empty - 24h shop is just a minute away.
Also I like you to notice that this is old building, so it has thick walls but not so thick floors and ceilings - loud noise is heard to and from upstairs and downstairs.
Please don't use my WIFI for anything illegal.
Jürgen er en virkelig fin vært, som svarer hurtigt på mails om diverse spørgsmål op til ankomst. Han skriver og taler på et godt engelsk. Han mødte os ved lejligheden med frisk frugt, vand og mælk - og sågar friske blomster, da vi ankom. Lejligheden ligger perfekt, midt i den gamle by og et stenkast fra fæstningen, Lossi Plats og Den Danske Konges Have.) Jürgen er en person med mange jern i ilden, som det er meget interessant at tale med om fx sociale og økonomiske forhold i Estland. Vi endte med at tilbringe en halv dag sammen, hvor vi bl.a. tog vores børn til det maritime museum (en spændende attraktion, som ligger 20 min.s gang fra centrum.) Jürgen og hans lejlighed kan varmt anbefales.
Centrally located apartment. Clean and well maintained. We had a bit of trouble finding the apartment as it has two entrances (very convenient once you're settled but awkward when trying to track it down). Contacting Jurgen was easy and he was very helpful.
We had a great stay at Jurgens apartment! It's at heart of Tallinn with all you need for comfortable stay. Flat has fantastic positive energy. Can recommend for all!
Jurgen met us, helped with finding a place to park, helped with bags and was very nice.
His flat is very clean, spacious, though it is a studio it is very well organized, so that you have a dining & sleeping area. I liked the furniture and the walls, overall everything gives a homy touch. There is a shop on the corner, the main attractions are in 2 minutes walk – the location is perfect. I'd recommend to everybody
Jurgen's place was fantastic. Perfect location right in the middle of the old town one block from the main square, and such a great space.
Jurgen was there to meet us when we arrived and explained everything and also was kind enough to drop us at the bus station when we left!
The place is great. Exactly as described. Perfect for 2 people. Loads of room, good little kitchen for cooking. We made good use of the clothes washer!
Nice apartment as you see on the pics, conveniently located. I guess if it would have been -20 outside would have been cold, since it was not really warm at around 0.
Mi estancia alli fue maravillosa, el emplazamiento es inmejorable y el apartamento verdaderamente calido y acogedor. El propietario fue muy educado y agradable.
Es un alojamiento que os recomiendo a todos

I'm almost normal Estonian. Living in the city but spending weekends in the countryside. I am also a student and like most of Estonian students I am working full time. This time my major is IT management to support my work in Ministry of Social Affairs.
In addition to constant learning I love to travel and so does my wife Kristin. My daughter (10) and son (5) are too young to like school but they like to travel.
Me, my family and friends will take our guests as friends, give you the privacy you need and be available when you need advice about Estonia or Tallinn.
