    • night life for the over 40s

      by tonylcd Online Now Jul 24, 2016 at 6:42 AM

      Me and a couple of friends are looking to book a long weekend in Tallinn, we are all in our mid 40s and wondered whether we would feel out of place in this vibrant location.
      We are all single so would welcome some friendly female company, are there any places you could recommend where we will not feel too ancient / out of place?

      Hotels with real double beds?

      by Takapiru Online Now Jul 2, 2016 at 12:12 PM

      I'm not the only VT member accepting only a REAL DOUBLE BED when I book a hotel room.
      So, if Your hotel in Tallinn has REAL DOUBLE BEDS with big sheets (over and under) and big blankets, please tell it not just here but also on Your website.

      I also wish that Your hotel chain could use a good visual symbol for REAL DOUBLE BEDs.

      Inspiring interactivity!

      2 days 1 night in Tallinn

      by coanne Online Now Apr 30, 2016 at 3:03 AM

      Hi we will be in Finland to chase the lights end of this Oct and greedy me wants to do a side trip to Tallinn as well! Would a 2 days 1 night trip be sufficient for Tallinn? We have never been to that part of Europe before but I love old towns, history and culture. Please share what are the must-dos, must-eats (Olde Hansa?), must-drinks etc...

      Would My City Tallinn hotel be a good choice? Alas we don't have the budget to stay in the Savoy or St Petersbourgh and My City hotel looks like a decent choice!

      Appreciate all advice given for a short stay in Talliinn (around the last week of Oct)!

      Hello all
      I had understood that there was a trainline running between the 2 cities? However, isn't really showing anything for this.
      Is the bus a better and quicker option for getting to St P?
      Is an advanced reservation recommended for this? It must be a busy route

Also would like to have local cuisine for dinner and perhaps have a break in a good pub or beer house.

    • Places for a more mature group...

      by NeilRay Online Now May 12, 2014 at 5:15 AM

      Hey all, thanks for reading and to those who reply. Yes, we are going to Tallinn for a stag (I can imagine all the eye rolling now) BUT most of the group are married, we are all in our 30's and not the type to go out causing trouble in a drunken rage or molesting the poor local women. Thing is, we still love to party hard! We are there from 23rd May until 26th and I wondered what is recommended as the best nightlife options for us on the Friday, Saturday, and Sunday (We are likely to opt to take VIP areas if available) and yes, ok I will say it if the single guys in the group happen to meet attractive, high quality women on our nights out I do not think they will complain!

      Thanks again,

      I have a lot of questions regarding public transport. Will be in Tallinn this summer with my daughter & grandson and expect sometimes to use a bus or tram.
      Are individual tickets only sold by the driver? Cost? Do these tickets need to be validated and how do I do that?
      Is it true that Seniors travel for free?
      How does a Smartcard work? Would we need 3 cards or can one card be validated 3 times? How do I add more trips onto the card?

      I'm travelling to Tallinn next week and I was wondering of you have to book tickets for the ferry to helsinki in advance or if you can also book a return ticket at the ferry terminal before departure? I'm not sure yet for doing a day trip to helsinki, that's why I would like to have the opportunity to buy it there on the spot. And what about prices, are they more expensive in the terminal than on the internet?
