Interaction with Guests
We (me, my family and my friends) will take you as our guests and friends, give you the privacy you need, and be available when needed.
Less than 500 m to public transportation (street-car, bus, train - all the lines in Tallinn), restaurants, museums, cinemas and shopping. 5 to 7 min walk to Kalev SPA or Meriton Hotel if you like swimming and sauna. 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. If you are looking for anything special just let me know.
About shopping: 24h store is only 30m away, supermarkets from 1 minutes walk (Rimi) or 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 from the apartment 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 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 short number 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 help you with planning a short tour in Tallinn or 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 make a plan.
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.
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.
180 x 200 cm bed is against the natural limestone city wall. I used only traditional materials to renovate the apartment. Wood, natural plaster and gypsum.
