Myself and two grown-up daughters rented this apartment for a week and it couldn't have been more perfect for our needs.
Risto is an unobtrusive and easy-going host. Helpful and easy to contact if needed.
The apartment itself feels spacious and well-cared-for and has everything we needed for our week away. We didn't do as much cooking as we'd planned as there are so many good restaurants nearby (though not the cheapest, being in the heart of the old town). The only item we could have done with was a non-stick frying pan!
Being on the ground floor right in the heart of town meant that sometimes there was late night noise from outside from the occasional reveller but never a problem and it did kind of add to the feeling of "being there".
The wi-fi was a bit hit & miss. For anyone staying here in future, it's worth noting that I found it became a lot more reliable if I disabled 11n speed on my laptop wi-fi adapter. As the connection seemed to max out at 10Mb anyway there is no advantage to connecting at higher than 11g speed.
Transport-wise, the apartment is within easy walking distance to all of the fabulous Tallinn old town and one kilometer or so to public transport - trains, buses and trams. A little further to the ferry for a day-trip to Helsinki but still easily walkable.
We had bought a travel pass on our first day but ended up hardly using it... just a couple of trips to the outskirts (the TV tower is a fun way to see the city from above).
For going further afield without car rental (parking in the old town is not advisable) I can recommend the "traveller tours" company who start their tours from the tourint information point (http://www.traveller.ee/).
I'd be happy to go back to Tallinn and this apartment in particular any time. Great holiday.
