Historical Traveler Reviews Park Inn by Radisson Central Tallinn
Trying to find a nice place to stay in Talling on a budget the "Reval Central" was a "gift.
The way to arrive to the hotel is quite easy. Just taking the bus line #2 and walking down at the "Tallink Hotel" stop. From there, just 5' walking (or less). The location is really good. You are just a short stroll to the old town while sleeping in a quiet are. In my oppinion, very convenient.
My request of a room at the 6th floor with balcony done at reservation time was honoured at check-in without having to remind it.
The room (a twin one) was really modern following a "nordic" style and perfectly clean. Wood floor, a nice desk area and a couple of comfortable chair with another table. The room was quite spacious as bathroom was. Bed was soft and comfortable but the pillows were small (just a square) so I had to took another one from the empty bed.
There is a mini-bar with a nice frigde to leave your own drinks :)
I'd liked a safe box to leave my laptop computer (there is free WiFi at the hotel and around all the city).
On the bad side, from my room (635) I could listen some "noise" and vibrations from the ventilation room (next to mine). Not really disturbing the sleep, but a bit annoying.
The spotless bathroom had heating floor. For those loving water pressure on the shower they can be happy. On the negative side is there are no amenities. Just shower gel and hairdryer.
The breakfast was nothing special (at least for my taste) and the breakfast tables area should be more cleaner.
After reading some negative comments about the staff. I only can say that with me were always very courteous and smiling.
Stone Face Staffs
Stayed one night in this hotel
It is quite a long walk from Linda Line's ferry terminal (about 20 minutes). Walking to old town is 10 minutes. Shopping center and supermarket across the main street. Room size is reasonable but the extra bed is very
small. Not for adult
Staffs at reception desk had stone face most of the time and appeared to be very impatient when asking about leaving our luggage behind after check-out
Breakfast is in line with Scandic hotels in Helsinki
Recommend Gloria (in old town) for lunch or dinner (they have two restaurants one in the wine cellar which is cheaper but limited choice). The formal one is quite expensive. US$50 per person (appertizer plus main course) without wine
Stayed in the Reval Central for 4 nights as part of a large group and could not fault it. The reception staff are efficient, helpful and friendly and the rooms are much bigger than average with good facilities. Breakfast was plentiful with a huge selection.
Top tip: request a room on the 6th floor and you should get a balcony.
We ate out en masse at a fabulous restaurant in the old town square that I cannot recommend highly enough. The waiting staff dealt with 23 boisterous Scots with fantastic charm and good humour. It was called Mariekhva (I think)
Excellent Tourist Class Hotel
We stayed here as part of a lads weekend away.
Late review due to only just knowing about website....
Excellent hotel, slightly away from the touristy areas such as the old square, but well within walking distance.
The staff are very friendly & extremely helpful.
Highly recommended is the rental of the spa room, for about £25 per hour you can rent the spa room which has its own sauna & hot tub as well as showers and a WC. Great for relaxing after a hard day walking around.... even better I'd imagine if you go as a couple!
The breakfast is very good and the hotel bar isn't over priced - there is even an off licence across the road if you want alcohol cheaper!
Great location & well presented hotel
The Reval Hotel Central is indeed Central, and only a 5 min walk to Tallinn's amazing UNESCO World Heritage Old Town. Although the hotel is on a main road the entrance is down an alleyway.
My room (602)was a 'standard single' and is one of the smallest rooms I've ever stayed in. But, it was modern, very clean and the bed comfortable. TV had english channels, pay movies, bathroom was tiny with only a shower, but again very clean. No tea/coffee facilities.
Breakfast in the lobby seemed to be a free-for-all with people walking in off the street, but it was a hot buffet with a good choice and there is plenty of seating available.
All in all cheap, tidy, well located and fine for a short stopover.
Good mid range accomodation at a decent price (expedia specials). Location is 10 minute walk from the port (for day trips to Helsinki) and 10-15 minute walk from the old town. Bars and clubs all within walking distance.
Best Hotel - We Love It!
We just returned from two days in Tallinn, Estonia. We stayed at the Reval Central based on reviews in Trip Advisor. We've stayed at Hyatts all over the world. Therefore, we are qualified to tell you that the Reval Central is a great hotel. The price for a Superior Room for the two of us was just 80 dollars US. The decor is high tech Scandanavian. The staff is friendly and very helpful. The breakfast buffett is super. We purchased our Tallinn card there and found it to be a great bargain. We will return to Tallinn again and we will stay at the Reval Central. By the way, it is located about 3 blocks from the entrance to Old Town.
I've just returned from staying 2 nights in this hotel.
First of all the location is really good. Only about 5 minutes walk from Old Town and 2 minutes from Viru centre with loads of shops.
I stayed in a normal room which was quite small compared to other hotels I've stayed in. There was a small tv, an open wardrobe and a small desk with phone. The ensuite was also small but was clean and the shower was nice and hot. No bath though.
The room was fine for a 2-3 night stay but if I was staying longer I would probably want to upgrade to a superior room.
Breakfast was served in the bar and was buffet style and had a good selection including English tea, yahoo!
Only minus point was the sauna where they charge you 400eek (about £20) to use it. It accomadates up to 8 people but we couldn't find another 6 to use it with us! It's the same charge whether there is 2 of you or 8 which is a bit bizarre.
Apart from that the hotel was clean and comfortable and I'd certainly receommend it. By the way it's only about a 10 minute walk from the ferry terminal but there is tram which leaves from outside the hotel and drops you close to the entrance to the terminal.
Great 3 star !
Just returned from a very enjoyable 4 night stay at reval central . I booked this in preference to the reval 4 star after reading the reviews on this site. I can concur that the location is good,staff very friendly and helpful ,and the rooms very light,spacious and airy.
Tthe breakfast buffet was also good. Iwould use it again if ever returning.
I've visited Tallinn three times now and each time stayed at the Reval Central Hotel. It is cheap, central, very clean, friendly and quiet.
We always book a superior room as these rooms are bigger with a large bath tub and a mini fridge. The rooms are larger than in many five star establishments yet considerably cheaper.
There is free internet access in the lobby, and the reception staff are always friendly and helpful. There is an ATM just outside the entrance door which is very useful as hotel exchange rates are not usually very good.
The breakfast buffet is good, the usual Swedish selection of cold meats, fish, fruit, salads, yogurts, breads, cakes, cheeses, sausages, scrambled eggs and hard boiled eggs. Only good and not great cos it doesn't have my favourite soft boiled eggs. But plenty for the greediest of piggies.
The Old Town is a five minute walk away, as is the port, there is a shopping centre just two minutes away, tram stop likewise, and an off licence round the corner. The hotel restaurant and snack bar are also excellent.
My only word of warning is DON'T USE THE RESTAURANT OPPOSITE IT IS RUBBISH.

The above statement might be a little stretched, but there were men dressed in old knight suits made of steel and girls dressed as Maid Marian lookalikes, enticing you to play medieval type games.
