Tallinn Apartments

Our guests are often surprised by just how good the value of our serviced 1 bedroom and studio apartments are compared to staying in a regular Tallinn hotel. If you like affordable luxury with more space for your money, a very central location, more convenience and privacy than a hotel then come and stay with us at Pikk 49 Apartment Accommodation Tallinn.

Situated in the heart of the Tallinn old Town, just 2 minutes away from the town square, you would be paying a lot more if you were even lucky enough to find a good hotel that centrally located. Our Tallinn accommodation prices show great savings over staying in a traditional Tallinn hotel.

Why pay more for a Tallinn hotel room of a lower quality, in a worse location?

There have been many glowing reviews left about the Prangli Island Tours, one such positive review…
“I travel often and this is definitely one of the more unique day tours I have been on. Our tour guide is wonderful: knowledgeable, friendly, and very sweet. She sets the tone for the trip, and our tour was one of the most entertaining and fun-filled tours I’ve been on. From the ferry trip to Prangli island to the rugged beauty of the coastline and quaint, rural village, everything is special and memorable about this tour. I highly recommend this–it is off the beaten path and absolutely worth it. And if your tour is anything like the one I was on, you will come away with your heart full and your soul satisfied. Thanks a million, Annika and Prangli Island Tours! I’m looking forward to coming back with my husband!”
