Radisson Blu Hotel
While the Radisson Blu’s skyscraper exterior might call to mind a soulless business mecca, don’t let appearances fool you. The moment you step inside this international chain hotel, you feel the scope of its 21st-century luxury.
The service, the lobby and the rooms manage to be intimate on a grand scale – at 24 storey’s this custom-made building is still the highest in Tallinn (although new developments are rising all around in this central shopping and office district just ten minutes’ walk from the Old Town).
Now over a decade old, the 280 rooms are decorated in four different styles: Italian, Oriental, Maritime and Nordic, and each comes equipped with its own ‘power tower’ (complete with TV, radio, trouser press, kettle, etc.).
Lounge 24, the top floor bar, has some of the best views in Estonia and you can sip a drink overlooking the terracotta rooftops and spires of the city below. For those with a touch of vertigo the sumptuous lobby bar is a sophisticated place for a nightcap. The Madissoni Grill & Bar does what it says on the tin while the Seasons restaurant produces simple, yet high-class, European cooking.
