Our one-week road trip through Estonia was simply terrific! I can only recommend you to visit not only the beautiful capital Tallinn but also the rest of the country. In this article we have put together an overview of our most beautiful Estonia accommodations.
In addition to the delicious food and the beautiful landscape, we were particularly impressed by the beautiful accommodations. One house is cuter than the other and the hosts are so smoochable!
By the way : you can find an overview of all Estonia accommodations at the end of the post.
1. NORDIC HOTEL FORUM, TALLINN
The Nordic Hotel Forum is located east of the old town in the Rotermanni Kvartal . From there you can easily walk to the old town in 10 minutes. The rooms are nice and spacious and a good breakfast buffet is served. Unfortunately, we were unable to test the spa area with sauna, steam bath and whirlpool due to lack of time.

2. PRAAGA GUESTHOUSE, PRANGLI ISLAND
If you are visiting Tallinn or taking a tour of Estonia, you should definitely make time for a detour to Prangli Island. It is only an hour outside of Tallinn and is wonderfully pristine and quiet. There we recommend you to spend the night in the Praaga Hof guest house .
The rooms are absolutely basic but very close to nature. We were warmly welcomed and looked after and the food is just amazing! But that’s actually great everywhere in Estonia.

3. VILLA THERESA, RAKVERE
The Villa Theresa in Rakvere we take for completeness on the list of Estonia accommodations on, even if it falls a bit out of the ordinary.
Or maybe we just got the hotel off the beaten track. It was deserted and the breakfast was very poor. Otherwise it is a nice house and everything was clean but also a bit dusty.

4. OVERNIGHT STAY IN THE BEAR HUT, ALUTAGUSE
Bear watching in Alutaguse was one of our highlights on our Estonia road trip. And also the overnight stay in the hut designed for this purpose.
It is a very simple wooden hut from NaTourEst with ten bunk beds and a dry toilet. Don’t expect comfort, it’s just for observation.
The hut is located in the forest in a small clearing where you can watch the bears through narrow peep slits. Take warm things with you and also your food. But take rubbish with you again. And you have to be sooooo quiet, otherwise you won’t spot any bears!

5. TOOMARAHVA, NEAR LAHEMAA NATIONAL PARK
The Toomarahva holiday farm in Altja is super cute and idyllic. The rooms are typically Estonian and comfortably furnished. As everywhere we were warmly welcomed by the hostess.
There is also a beaver dam nearby, where, with a bit of luck, you can watch beavers at dusk. We weren’t lucky and on the way back from the beaver dam it was so dark that we almost pissed ourselves in fear.

6. KLAARAMANNI GUESTHOUSE, NEAR SOOMAA NATIONAL PARK
The guest houses in Estonia are really all awesome – but the Klaara-Manni really surpassed them all. The hosts were so incredibly sweet, we would have loved to have stayed there right away. You can plan a few extra nights here.
And the self-prepared meal with vegetables from the own garden really surpassed everything. Definitely our top accommodation in Estonia .

7. PÕNKA GUESTHOUSE, NEAR SOOMAA NATIONAL PARK
The Põnka Guesthouse is also one of the most beautiful Estonia accommodations . The special thing here is the real Finnish sauna – with the sauna pond right in front of it! However, it takes a tiny bit of effort to jump into the 15 degree cold water. But we guarantee you a priceless experience.
Here, too, we were spoiled by the landlord with a delicious three-course menu in his living room. And he had loads of delicious stories ready!
