The Three Sisters Hotel, Tallinn, Estonia

Modern luxury in the best preserved medieval city in Europe

To put the appeal of the Three Sisters Hotel in Tallinn into perspective we have to start with the building itself. Three merchant houses dating from 1362 located on Pikk street just inside the old city walls. The entire old town is a designated Unesco World Heritage site and this spectacular example of medieval building complex make it a top ten site to see in most guide books. As a guest staying in this fabulously renovated boutique 5*, inside it gets even better.

The rooms are as far away from the cookie cutter experience of chain hotels as you would expect. Each of the 23 rooms at the Three Sisters is unique. The most basic double room is not very basic at all. All the amenities you would expect to find in a 5* are there; flat screen TV, extremely comfortable beds and duvets, Babor Spa toiletries, robe and slippers and a well stocked mini and snack bar but there’s also something extra to the experience.

The luxury feels very subtle and understated and the overall effect is a very relaxing atmosphere. Past guests include such diverse luminaries as Queen Elizabeth ll and Lou Reed.


This atmosphere of calm continues throughout the entire hotel and creates a very pleasant environment for appreciating the many original features still to be seen throughout the building. It’s certainly worth taking the stairs instead of the lift sometimes to see the exposed original painted designs on the stone windows. In Bordoo, the excellent restaurant, look up and see some of the original wood beams in place since the 14th century.

Breakfast is worth getting up early for at the Three Sisters. In our opinion this ranks as one of the best breakfast buffets we have experienced. All the usual elements are there, fresh fruit, juice, cold cuts including a fabulous selection of meats and cheese and so on but as with the rest of the Three Sisters experience it is the attention to detail and the extras on offer that take it to another level.

Try some local delicacies like smoked salmon or herring with a glass of prosecco, a national dish called “kama” which is actually a healthy muesli yoghurt or just appreciate the superb choice of breads and pastries. Hot options like scrambled eggs are also available.

Tallinn is a breathtakingly beautiful city and the best preserved medieval city in Europe. To be able to stay in one of the most special buildings within the old town is an experience not to be missed. And we’re giving you the chance to experience it!
