"Apartment - Not a hotel - but very good nonetheless"
Anyone renting this should be aware that they are renting a privately owned apartment. You don't have the services of a normal hotel (e.g. room service, daily cleaning, front desk, etc.). That said, I thought this rental was great.
I stayed 2 nights. The owner met me at the apt. She sent me detailed and accurate instructions for getting to the apartment. On arrival, she was very helpful with neighborhood info and local info.
The apartment is ideally situated in a modern neighborhood only a short walk from the old town. There is a mall & supermarket across the street, post office a block away and a very nice cinema directly across the street that plays English language movies. For those arrive or departing by bus - the apartment is only a couple of tram stops from the bus station (the owner will give you details) or if you are arriving/departing by ferry, you can walk (about 15 mins.) to the ferry port. I did both (bus & ferry) and had no trouble at all.
The apartment is a very good value because it is quite a large studio, has a good sized bathroom and a kitchen(ette) for keeping food at home. The wifi internet is excellent and she also has a very large new television.
The owner has made the apartment as hotel-like as possible, but you do feel a bit like your staying in someone's house. You also do not have the quaint atmosphere of staying in the old town, but if I was to return to Tallinn, I would stay here again, especially if I had need for a longer stay.

I stayed here when I visited Tallinn with a group of friends.They had all booked into the Swisshotel,however I fancied something with a little more character-Even though the hotel is clearly older than other more expensive hotels it still holds a particular charm to it and after experiencing the swisshotel rooms then I felt I had made the right choice in the sokos.
On booking in I was asked if i wanted to upgrade my room to one which had a tea making facility and with a room safe...they advised this would cost me 60 euros for 3 nights,I said make it 30 and they had a deal,they immedialty agreed and i was upgraded.
The upgrade consisted of a room on the 22nd floor with sea views and WOW what views......spectacular-again my friends views in the swisshotel consisted of apartment blocks .......
The breakfast was nice..nothing too special,however was clean and with a huge variety-I went to the nightclub fri and saturday,for free...and had a great time,my friends had to pay and they was gutted they werent in my hotel.
the only downside was that it stipulates that there is a pool..but i was told it was an additional 30 euros to use this..not great.
overall-i had returned back home and am looking forward to a return visit with my wife and would gladly stay again at the sokos hotel.

I loved this hotel. 5-10 Minutes from the airport, walking distance to the Old Town and University, two blocks from the great Stockmann Department and grocery store. The hotel staff were excellent. The hotel includes a gym, pool, onsite cafe, restaurant, lobby bar, and casino (for those who want such things!!) Breakfast was available from 6.30 am daily and offered great choices. Rooms are slightly austere but absolutely entirely adequate. Price was great!! This place could not be beat - if you go to Tallinn do stay here. I will on my return.
