Located just 7 minutes walk away along the river from Town Hall, in an award-winning architectural marvel called the Snail Tower or the Tower of Saruman, there lies this two-room apartment (66 sqm) with one bedroom, open kitchen and big living room!

The space

Find the house by searching the sky for the tallest building in Tartu, resembling a snail (hard to miss).

The apartment has 2 rooms - a bedroom and a living room joined with kitchen (plus a toilet/bathroom).

The bedroom contains a 160cm wide bed, a wardrobe and a closet. Two windows provide a lot of light (and warmth), should you not want either of those, there are blinding curtains and air con to keep you cool. Other sleeping options include a comfortable camp bed, slightly less comfortable couch and a futon.

Living room has a nice 55" ambilight TV, slightly above-average speakers, a big roll-down screen, a wall-mounted projector and a couch. There is a HDMI jack for passing your video to either TV or projector and a 3.5MM headphone jack for passing your audio to the speakers! Additionally, there is a small range of toys for kids to play with.

Kitchen contains an oven, electric cooking stove, dishwasher, fridge, espresso machine, toaster, kettle and a mixer. A lot of plates, forks, knives and glasses, pots and pans. Also a highchair with table for small children.

The bathroom is well, your average bathroom, with toilet, mirror, bath and a washing machine. There is also remote controlled RGB-LED lighting for getting you in/out of the mood during bathroom procedures.

Guest access

The entire apartment is at your disposal. There is a shared balcony for your fresh air and smoking needs.

Place where you can feel like home. Kitchen has everything needed for cooking, from variety of cookware to spices and oil. Hammock with a city view. Netflix subscription. High speed internet via wifi. If you don't know Tartu well then tower is nice landmark that's hard to miss in city skyline: helps you reach back home :)

lovely compact apartment with great panoramic round window (12th floor) and a swing in front of it. no need for tv nor home theatre (there are). very comfy sofa in the living room. bathtub and nice bed. very close to the bus station, just above the ahhaa science center and a market, short walk to the side of a canal with all sorts of exercise devices, as short walk to the old city center. communication with merily was very pleasant and fast, although we didn't meet in person. yes.

This apartment is exactly as it appears, except a bit bigger and in a better location then I had thought. All the appliances are new, the host keeps the apartment well stocked, and it was immaculately cleaned. I stayed with my children while my husband studied at the university, and it was easy to access all areas of Tartu, the bus and the taxi are right outside, as well as the science center, water park, public beach, two nice playgrounds, and multiple markets. The university is a ten minutes walk (with babies in tow). Check in was a breeze, and we were even a couple minutes early. The owner definitely thinks of the occupants comfort, as everything I needed was supplied, an adapter for the movie screen, high chair, pack and play, even laundry soap (which is a blessing when you don't speak estonian). I doubt I will be in Tartu again, but if so, I would only stay here. Thanks for the great stay!
