A new hotel is about to open in Tallinn: chic rooms, Japanese-Peruvian cuisine and a cozy spa center await visitors
On May 1, the Estonian company HMP Hotels OÜ will open the first Radisson Collection hotel in the Baltic States in Tallinn. A distinctive feature of the hotel will be rooms designed by the best Estonian designers, a spa complex, a 1000 square meter conference center and two new top restaurants – MEKK and ISSEI.
Located on Rävala boulevard and formerly known as the Radisson Blu Sky, the hotel has undergone a thorough renovation over the past year, earning it a 5-star rating.
According to the chairman of the board of Radisson Collection Tallinn, Ain Käpa, the opening of the hotel on Rävala boulevard is a big compliment to Estonia and Tallinn. “The fact that one of the world’s largest hotel chains has given permission to open its best brand in Estonia after a pandemic that has affected the entire tourism world is a great recognition,” said Koepp.
“One of the principles of the Radisson hotel chain is to remain true to the place where the hotel is located as much as possible. That is, when opening a new hotel, we introduce the local culture and design language. The entire hotel is designed in a typical Estonian style,” Koepp explained.
The hotel features 287 rooms, including 19 suites, including the Presidential Suite, Premium Suite and 3 unique suites with fitness equipment. All rooms offer a beautiful view of Tallinn. On the fourth floor of the hotel there is a spacious gym and SPA center with 3 saunas (Finnish sauna, steam bath and sanarium), Japanese bath and swimming pool.
On the 24th floor is the restaurant and bar ISSEI with a panoramic view. The restaurant serves Japanese-Peruvian cuisine. You can get acquainted with the local food culture in the famous Estonian restaurant MEKK on the first floor of the hotel, where chef Rene Uusmees will offer guests the best of modern Estonian cuisine.
The Radisson Collection brand includes 28 hotels located around the world. Now one of them will be waiting for guests in Tallinn.
