"Once the crumbling staple for Soviet fairytale films, Tallinn has reinvented itself as an inexpensive getaway for Europeans… these days, its buzzing cafés, pubs and clubs offer a variety of hedonistic pursuits", says Rough Guides. The good-value, informal PK Ilmarine Hotel is an ideal base for exploring the Estonian capital, as it is just a few minutes' walk from tram and bus stops, the ferry terminal, the railway station, and the seaside city’s business, cultural and entertainment quarters.

The hotel is a 3-minute walk to the Fat Margaret Tower, which houses the Estonian Maritime Museum, and a 6-minute walk to the medieval St Olaf's Church, with its prominent spire and historical significance, including associations with both the Reformation and the KGB. Toompea Hill, the 1229 birthplace of Tallinn and home to Toompea Castle, the former residence of the city's rulers and today the seat of the Estonian parliament, is within a 15-minute walk of the hotel. The UNESCO World Heritage Site Old Town, with its mediaeval cobblestone streets and majestic 19th-century Russian Orthodox Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, is a pleasant 11-minute walk through the park from the hotel. After sightseeing, you could head to the Old Town for dusk-till-dawn partying in its many nightclubs.
Rooms come with free Wi-Fi, a satellite TV, a safe, a seating area, and city or courtyard views. Upgraded rooms feature tea- and coffee-making facilities, a mini bar and a flat-screen TV. Pets are allowed, and there are rooms adapted for wheelchair use. A free breakfast buffet is included in the room price.
There's a cosy bar with sofas, and an Estonian restaurant, Wiegand, decorated with contemporary art. Other amenities include the Angel Rose beauty salon (with a barber and hair salon) and spa offering massage and other treatments, a meeting/banqueting room and a gym/fitness centre.
