Review: Park Inn by Radisson Central Tallinn

Trip to Vilnius, Lithuania and Tallinn, Estonia

A couple of weeks ago, I was traveling again and this time, I visited two Baltic cities namely, Vilnius and Tallinn. It was my first time to visit Vilnius and I was really glad to have visited this beautiful city as they have a very nice Old Town with lots of interesting sights to visit. Since I have gold status with Club Carlson, I booked my first night at the Radisson BLU Hotel Lietuva which is famous for its Skybar and my second night at the Radisson BLU Royal Astorija Hotel which is located in the heart of the Old Town and where famous dignitaries like the King of Sweden and ex US President Bush have stayed in the past. Although I've been to Tallinn a few years ago, it was only for a few hours as we were on a cruise that time. This time, I stayed for two nights, staying at the Park Inn by Radisson Central Tallinn on my first night and at the newly opened Hilton Tallinn Park for my second night where I was given an upgrade to a one bedroom suite 😍 I flew with SAS and LOT in economy class during this trip but since I have Star Alliance gold status, I had access to the SAS Gold Lounge in Copenhagen Kastrup Airport, the IDW Esperanza Resort Lounge in Vilnius Airport and the Business Lounge in Tallinn Airport. It was just a short trip since I had to be back in Stockholm for work but I definitely enjoyed every minute of it and hopefully, I will be back again soon πŸ˜‰

Sauna (2nd floor)

I tried to enter the sauna using my room key but it did not work.

I later learned from the receptionist that I had to book it and that the use of sauna is chargeable. It's 13 Euro per hour between 8am and 3pm and 26 Euro per hour between 3pm and 11pm.

CONCLUSION

Arriving at the hotel around 5:30pm, I was welcomed by Jaanus, a nice young guy working in the reception. He welcomed me as a Club Carlson gold member and after a few minutes, he was giving me my room key as well as a drink voucher. I originally booked a guest room and was upgraded to a superior room with sofa and for the price I paid, I thought it was a very good deal as it also included complimentary breakfast. The food selection on the breakfast buffet was very good although I have to say that it was my first time to see the bacon and egg muffins on a buffet which pretty much reminded me of the sausage Mcmuffin from McDonald's πŸ˜‰ The hotel is actually located ideally with lots of shopping malls around and a few minutes more of walking towards northwest and you are in the Old Town πŸ‘ The sauna which was not complimentary was new for me although I was informed by the receptionist that it is pretty common among the hotels in Tallinn. Overall, I really enjoyed my one night stay in this hotel and with nice rooms, great location, friendly staff and very good breakfast, this hotel is highly recommended πŸ‘ To all the staff of Park Inn by Radisson Central Tallinn, "AitΓ€h!"
