Tallinn history

The Merchant’s House Hotel Tallinn comprises two recently restored medieval buildings set right at the heart of the Old Town of Tallinn.
In conjunction with the Estonian Historical Society, the Merchant’s House has been renovated in keeping with the original usage of the buildings. The hotel’s buildings date as far back as the 14th and 16th Century.

The high time of Tallinn as a medieval Hanseatic town was the 15th century.

This is a unique opportunity to visit Tallinn and stay in a lovingly restored medieval merchants home.

Your medieval hotel in Tallinn is also blessed with its own courtyard which provides a private and relaxing place to either enjoy breakfast or luncheon, or as an oasis during the day from the hustle and bustle of the Old Town activities.

An alternative is to sit outside on the Merchant’s House summer terrace, literally a stone’s throw from the old Town Hall main square.
