Situated in Tallinn’s Old Town, amidst medieval courtyards and cobblestone streets, the Schlössle Hotel, a member of The Leading Hotels of the World, will re-open on the 16th May 2016 after a stylish refurbishment.
Drawing inspiration from 18th Century Nordic design, famed interior architect Jean Pierre Martel, appointed to the project, has created a style which gracefully complements the classic limestone architecture of the building, making it the perfect location from which to discover one of Europe’s most historical and alluring cities.
“The Schlössle has an illustrious heritage and an ideal location in the heart of the UNESCO World Heritage center of Tallinn, says General Manager, Mara Blaubarde. “The redesign of the hotel is the next exciting chapter in our story. We are looking forward to welcoming guests back to our home and providing them with that warm service and attention to detail for which we are known.”
Housed in an elegant 13th century merchant house on Pühavaimu Street, one of city’s most prestigious roads, the hotel’s 17 rooms and 6 suites have been restyled to offer a more airy and sophisticated layout. High vaulted ceilings, wooden beams and flagstone walls create a cozy and intimate atmosphere. The earthy colour palette of ivory, fern, soft beiges and greys, inspired by the hotel’s Baltic surroundings add to the soothing minimalist vibe.
The reception and lobby provide a contemporary look to welcome guests. Social spaces, ideal for an afternoon cocktail or interlude, include warm lounge areas, plush sofas and lustrous wood burning fireplaces reminiscent of a home-style estate. The lobby leads guests to the courtyard, a vibrant garden area open for lunch and dinner, where signature experiences, including the weekly barbeque take place during the summer.
Adjoining the lobby, the bistro offers an Estonian spin on contemporary dining, featuring a sumptuous breakfast buffet, lunch and dinner service with an emphasis on locally sourced ingredients and seasonal specialties. The menu includes such dishes as, gratin of pulled lamb shank and maple infused apples with carrots and mackerel with rhubarb-marinated fennel and thyme sauce. Downstairs, the gourmet restaurant has been redecorated with rich fabrics, stonework and bold colors to complement the historic setting. The cuisine is Nordic inspired with local ingredients and artistic presentations by Chef Rasmus Treial, whom has directed top kitchens in Ireland, Australia, Spain and Estonia. The Cigar Lounge, located in the cellar, offers a chic venue for after dinner cocktails and an extensive cigar list.
In addition to the redesign of the interiors, guests can expect enhanced experiences and bespoke details included in their stay such as; sparkling wine upon arrival, complimentary in-room mini bar and tailored snack basket. Preloaded iPads make ordering room service, connecting with the concierge team and discovering the surrounding sites effortless. Luxurious Aromatherapy amenities will pamper guests after a day of site seeing.
With enhanced facilities, stylish design and warm personalized service, the team is thrilled to welcome guests to experience the redefined Schlössle Hotel.
