Formerly known as Radisson Blu Sky, the representative Estonian hotel has undergone a massive €25 million refurbishment, as a result of which the hotel was upgraded to a 5-star level. The opening ceremony was also attended by Siim Kallas, who, in his capacity as Minister of Finance, opened the Radisson SAS Hotel in the same building in April 2001.
Prime Minister Kaja Kallas expressed her gratitude to entrepreneurs for the investments that are of great importance for the Estonian hospitality sector: “Bringing one of the world’s leading hotel brands to Estonia is a recognition of the work and reliability of our business people. It also shows that Estonia is trusted internationally – our business environment and Estonia’s potential as a tourist destination are highly valued.”
According to Viljar Arakas, executive director of EfTEN Capital, the investment in the renovation of the hotel shows that the tourism sector believes in recovery, the prerequisites of which are security and trust in Estonia: “This can only happen thanks to the excellent work that the government is doing for the security of Estonia at the international level.”
Real estate owner EfTEN Capital began renovating the hotel in the summer of 2019. The project was implemented by Fund Ehitus OÜ and interior architects from Vaikla Disain.
The hotel has 287 rooms, including 19 suites: the Presidential Suite, Premium Suites and 3 unique fitness suites. On the second floor, a 1,000 square meter conference centre has been completely renovated. It has 8 halls, the largest of which is named “Tallinn” and can accommodate 300 persons.
There are only 28 Radisson Collection hotels in the entire world.
