How to Find the Best Tallinn Hotels with Venere

Tallinn is the capital and largest city in Estonia, and is situated along the northern coast of the country on the shore of the Gulf of Finland. Although the area was settled as far back as 5,000 BC, the city did not truly develop until it came under Danish control in the 13th century, and thrived as a trading hub. The city today exudes charm, and brings together elements of both modern and medieval style to deliver a truly vibrant atmosphere. Much of the Old Town area of the city has a fairly tale charm with its neo-Gothic architecture and red rooftops. Finding your ideal hotel in Tallinn can be a difficult experience, as there are so many hotels to choose from. Venere makes things easy by providing thousands of user submitted hotel reviews, photo galleries of hotel rooms and facilities, and a helpful location applet via Google maps.
