Taking care of our guests and staff is our number-one priority. When it comes to following hotel and restaurant safety and hygiene requirements, we make no concessions.


Original Sokos Hotel Viru is following all of the Estonian Health Board's rules regarding COVID-19. Our staff have been instructed to follow precise hand hygiene and everyday safety requirements. We have added to our cleaning regime to make it even more effective and have made sure that soap, disinfectants and paper towels are available in sufficient amounts throughout the hotel. We have adapted the service model in our restaurants due to the state of emergency.

We would ask guests to only come to the hotel if they are in good health, and to observe all hygiene and safety measures while here. Only by doing so can we ensure one another's well-being.

Due to the current restrictions and the need to limit contact between people, only registered guests staying at the hotel may be in hotel rooms.

In addition to reminding you to wear a mask, security staff have the right to check that those making their way to the accommodation levels have guest room door cards and to prevent those who are not staying in the hotel from accessing the lifts and guest room floors of the hotel.

Let's look out for one another and do our part to stopping the spread of COVID-19!
