Recent reviews say:
‘This was my third stay at Park Inn by Radisson Central Tallinn and it was fully up to my previous visits, with squeaky-clean rooms, a great central location, good breakfasts, a fast and thorough laundry service, and an excellent lobby bar – everything I need for a stay right in the centre of Tallinn. Mention should also be made of the internet terminal available in the lobby (perfect for online check-in for my flight home – not all of us have smartphones or laptops!), and a problem I had with a late-arriving suitcase was favourably solved early in the morning after my arrival. It’s the perfect base for exploring Tallinn, close to just about everything, and I’m looking forward to future visits.’
‘Excellent location near old town, knowledgeable and friendly staff, very comfortable beds, great breakfast buffet – what more can one ask?’
