Great place in the center of the old town!
We (4 women with 4 babies) enjoyed our stay here. The location was perfect and our host was very helpful.
Overall our stay was very pleasant and I do recommend this place for people seeking a larger apartment in the center of everything in Tallinn. However, there was limited seating for dining and some of the beds were not good.
В целом апартаменты понравились, много места, удобное местоположение, интерьер тоже очень комфортный, круглый стол, в гостиной удобно расположиться компанией. Но были и неприятные моменты - наше заселение было отложено из-за того, что была не закончена уборка. Поэтому мы не смогли расположиться и спокойно погулять по городу. Также в описании было указано 4 спальни, по факту вместо 4 спальни была мансарда, где спать было неудобно, я всё время билась о крышу.
В целом впечатление положительное, спасибо хозяину за дрова, мы чудесно провели вечер у камина!
The Penthouse was the ideal place for our group of 3 couples (or even a larger group because there are some extra beds). Great location, you can get to the central Old Towne square in a few minutes by foot. There is a fireplace in the living room that was amazing to use. The house is really warm even though it is a medieval building. There is modern heating which is very important if you travel in the winter. Check-in and check-out times were flexible. The apartment is spacious and clean. Recommended.
We have a great time in Tallinn and especially thanks to this really nice penthouse, well located and very confortable.
We enjoyed our time there and Taisto and his son are very nice and welcoming.
Thanks for all !
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this apartment, it is a beautiful apartment right in the middle of the old town in easy walking distance from all tourist sights, stores, bars, clubs and restaurants. The apartment was super clean on our arrival and we were greeted by the owners son who was very welcoming, friendly and helpful, providing us with a tour of the apartment and also with some great tips of bars and restaurants.
There was plenty of space for the eight of us and the "Great Room" lounge area was a great social area for such a big group.
Overall I was really impressed and if I was to return to Tallinn with a big group I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
Taisto and his son are brilliant hosts and were always available to us should we need anything. The apartment itself is fabulous. There is an open fire in the living room which our hosts kindly showed us how to light and maintain in an easy fashion. The living room is very comfortable and great for relaxing after a day around Tallinn. The location of the apartment is second to none. It is very convenient to the main square and is located very close to many lovely restaurants and bars.
On our arrival we were given a number of suggested to-do's. It was great to have someone with local experience giving us a steer.
We were a group of 5 girls and I highly recommend this apartment for any similar groups. There is plenty of space and two showers!
We used the kitchen facilities for cooking breakfast and the facilities were more than adequate. Our hosts had kindly left some breakfast basics for us which was a lovely touch.
I would highly recommend this apartment and Taisto as a host and had no problems whatsoever during my stay.
The Medieval Villa is, clean, quiet, spacious yet very cosy, and we really made good use of "The Great Room" with the wood fireplace! That was the real benefit of renting an apartment over staying in a hotel. We were a group of 5 and being able to all sit together and socialise was the icing on the cake of the whole weekend.
In the lead up to our visit, including the booking process, Taisto was very keen to answer all of my questions. He was quick and detailed in his responses which made the whole process very smooth. By the time I actually booked the apartment I felt confident that I knew exactly what to expect and had a lot of extra, useful information.
We also took advantage of the breakfast option and Taisto's son came in to cook us a fantastic morning meal that was customized to suit all of our taste buds.
My friends and I were given good directions to the apartment and were met at the entrance on arrival. We were shown around the flat and given instructions on features of the flat e.g. use of the sauna.
The checkout procedures were simple and straightforward.
All in all a great visit and we would certainly look at an apartment again via Airbnb for our next adventure away to who knows where...
This is a great place, located at a relatively quiet spot in the Old Town. The apartment is on the third floor, in the attic above a good bakery downstairs. Three bedrooms a small sauna and lots of charm. The fireplace works, making a stay in the cold season especially enjoyable.The breakfast that Mark makes is delicious.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!! We booked at the last minute and Taisto was very patient answering our many emails! The loft is clean and comfortable with plenty of room. It is in a perfect location for Old Town and only a 15 minute walk to the ferry terminal. Taisto's son picked us up from the airport and showed us all we needed to know about the apartment as well as getting around Tallinn. They also advised us on the Helsinki ferry and a rental car. His son bought us a local sim card and spent 30 minutes setting it up in our phone so we could use it for GPS and local calls. They even offered to drive us to the airport for a 0605 departure! "Above and beyond" is all I can say! Great hosts!
Taisto's son Mark is very kind, interested and respectful. My apartment was left practically perfectly clean, so thanx! :) I would love to welcome him again one day in Amsterdam!
Taisto and his sons came for the weekend to celebrate a special birthday as a family, with just the guys, and it was a really nice experience.
They are friendly and extremely positive guests to have! They know exactly what they want and we were happy to help them to enjoy their stay in Riga.
Everything in our guesthouse was left in a clean and perfect order and it was our great pleasure to have them as our guests.
They are most welcome to visit us again for their next trip to Riga!
