For anyone who has been there, I'm looking for your suggestions for reasonable accommodations in Tallinn and Helsinki; late May, three nights in each city. I would like to be in the Old Town in Tallin and within a half mile from the city centre in Helsinki so that it's easily walkable.
Self-catering apartments would be fine, probably preferable, if they would rent for just three nights, and if the location is right. Since we're there in May I don't think AC is important, but Internet and cable is.
Price range: Double/Two twins: Thinking about $120 in Tallinn, $150 in Helsinki. Doable???
I've been reading reviews at TA and hotels.com and don't know what to think. Sometimes I don't think posters are even talking about the same place, the comments can be so opposite and so far apart. I'd rather get some recommendations from people here that I actually "KNOW".
AND, from what I've researched, there is no longer any train service between St P and Tallinn, and the distance between the two doesn't justify a flight, so it looks like we will be taking the Eurolines bus from St P to Tallin. Has anyone done that? How was your experience?
