“Impressive looking Hotel on the outside, Disappointing rooms though”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Very grand hotel lobby and reception made me feel like I'd booked a 5 star hotel. Got to the room, and I was really disappointed. Very basic, its almost like they spent all the money on the reception and lobby, but ran out of money for the important bit - the rooms! Small, and basic is the best way to describe them. Won't be rushing back. Spent most of my time out and about so can't comment on food or anything else. Staff we friendly though, location was OK, around a 10 minute walk to the old town.

Dear Guest

I am very sorry you did not like the room you were staying in. I would suggest for your next stay at the Radisson blu Olümpia, Tallinn you inquire about our other room categories that are bigger and also in a different style. I am certain we have some that will be to your liking. I hope to welcome you back at the Radisson blu Olümpia very soon.

Best regards

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

This hotel is better than I would have expected. It was built for the Olympic games in 1980, but nowadays serves as an excellent venue for business travellers. Good conference amenities. Ideal location, just a few minutes walk to the Old City. Opera and the Consert House and the down town shopping malls. Exclellent breakfest, abundandt good quality healthy food. We had a business package with lunches included, and the lunched were excellent as well. Staff is very friendly, all speak good english and very compliant. I did not have time to check out the sauna and pool which are located on the upper floor, as preferred a concert of the National Symphony Orchestra in the Estonian National Opera House just 6 minutes from the hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms on the higher floors haev marvellius view.

The hotel is nice and clean, not really anything to complain about. The standard room is fairly small but still perfect for a short stay. The staff was friendly and location was good. Free entrance to the gym and saunas was included in the price, too bad that it was only in the morning and I had no time to try them out.

Quite good hotel but you feel that it was build some decades ago.
The bed was way too soft for me. Really good view from the hotel room was spoiled by dirty window (which of course you cannot fully open).
Good service. Decent spa with (almost) full size swimming pool. Separate saunas for men and women. Spa for free for all hotel guests until 11am. I can be for free all day but it depends on the room rate. Good breakfast but whole week exactly the same.

Room Tip: Ask for room on high floor on north side to get better views

Fine hotel. Although the hotel itself is quite big, the rooms are on the small side. Not so small that it get's uncomfortable though. It's very lean. Staff is friendly, efficient and fluent in English. Diner and breakfast were excellent. The bar is a bit on the cold side. It's a walk of about 15 minutes to Tallinn's old town, so plenty of other opportunities closeby. All in all a good choice for a stay of a few nights, probably not longer.

Hotel is clean, good location but seems is bellow Radisson standards. Was surprised by quite "eastern" behavior and customer approach from service people at the reception and breakfast restaurant. The hotel should definitelly do something with the very noisy aircon in the rooms. The hotel seems approaching general need for renovation.

Room Tip: Check the a/c noise level

Hotel is fine, clean and in a good location. No issues at all, it just felt a bit tired and dated.
I just wished I had booked the Radisson Blu, the other Radisson hotel about 2 minutes away. My colleagues had booked it and it had a great roof top bar and fantastic views over the city.

Thank you for posting your comment on Tripadvisor. On one hand I am glad you did like your stay on the other of course its a shame you ended up in the "wrong" Radisson. However these 2 hotels are very difficult to compare and each has its specific charm very much appreciated by its respective, many regular clients. In the name of both I would like to invite you back and hopefully you will again choose Radisson for your next stay in Tallinn. Whichever.
