Accommodation in Parnu

Like most towns in Estonia, Pärnu has its fair share of traditional hotels, but a large part of the accommodation market is also filled by spa-hotels, which offer rooms with or without treatment, and by smaller villas and guesthouses.

No matter what kind of accommodation you’re looking for, keep in mind that Pärnu is a very seasonal destination and rooms for the summer months get booked up well in advance. Prices listed here are for the summer high season, and include VAT and breakfast, unless otherwise indicated. Off-season prices tend to be about 20% lower than those listed here.
