Commenting on the opening, Ave Svarts, Member of the Board of Tallink Hotels, said:
„It is delightful, that, by taking advantage of the pandemic period, we had the opportunity to use this time effectively and undertake such a thorough renovation project and complete it so successfully. The new hotel and the brand-new service concepts have been created within our own hotel team, featuring Tallink’s strengths and by bringing our most popular brands and concepts from sea to shore by placing them in the very heart of downtown Tallinn. In addition to staying at our Tallink City Hotel, our visitors are most welcome to check out our new restaurant City Grill House as well as enjoy themselves in our new relaxation centre and browse the Tallink Web shop’s display at the hotel. Hopefully, the spacious lobby area of the fully renovated hotel will become, once again, a favourite meeting spot for both Tallinners and visitors alike.“
At the hotel, more attention than before is paid to families, kids, holidaymakers and their need to combine family and work-related responsibilities when travelling.
Following the renovations, the hotel boasts with 324 hotel rooms of various categories: classic double rooms, spacious family rooms, elegant de lux rooms and luxurious suites. All hotel rooms have been refurbished in modern interior design style befitting an elegant city centre hotel.
The hotel restaurant also reopens with a completely new concept. The brand-new roomy City Grill House restaurant seats up to 228 persons and welcomes all enthusiasts of delicious grilled dishes. According to the Head Chef of City Grill House restaurant, Anatolijs Pimanovs, the wide selection of dishes on the menu are prepared from carefully selected choice ingredients, offered with an exciting variety of side dishes. The key words of the grill menu are flexibility, combinability of various menu elements and adjusting dishes to the customers’ individual prefence, as well as option to share food with friends around the table.
Restaurant’s impressively wide menu is skilfully prepared on the exclusive Mibrasa coal grill which highlights the top quality of choice ingredients. In addition to wide selection of meats, there are plenty of fish and seafood, vegetarian as well as vegetable dishes and tantalising desserts to choose from.
Next to the restaurant, a fun kids’ play area is found where the youngest members of the family can engage in fun activities whilst their parents enjoy a slightly longer breakfast or exquisite dinner. Giving a special consideration to the comfort of families travelling with kids, there is a truly unique kids suite in the hotel, designed especially to cater to the needs of the youngest in the family. And, should their parents need to get a work task or two sorted during their stay, there are special office spaces available for taking care of business on the hotel’s ground floor for the visitors’ convenience, so there is no need to send out the rest of the family members whilst tending to work responsibilities.

To offer needed rejuvenation for the hotel visitors aged 18 and older, there is a cosy and compact relaxation and treatments centre. Those guests who appreciate more active type of relaxation, there is an indoor exercise track available, located throughout the 10 floors of the hotel, offering various exercise intensity levels.
