Rezidor opens the Radisson Hotel Kaliningrad in Russia
The Rezidor Hotel Group, one of the fastest growing hotel groups worldwide and the leading international hotel operator in Russia/CIS, has opened the Radisson Hotel Kaliningrad. The brand new first class- and full service hotel with 178 rooms is centrally located in the heart of Kaliningrad (formerly known as Königsberg). Kaliningrad is known for its unique history – it has been a major city of the famous state of Prussia and the capital of the former German province of East Prussia, partitioned after World War II between the USSR and Poland, and renamed after the Soviet Head of State Mikhail Kalinin. The Kaliningrad region forms the westernmost part of the Russian Federation, but it has no land connection to the rest of Russia. It is surrounded by Lithuania, Poland, and the Baltic Sea.
“We are delighted to add a further Radisson hotel to our Russia portfolio. Russia/CIS belong to our key markets for future business development, and this new opening further underlines our commitment to this emerging region”, says Kurt Ritter, President & CEO of Rezidor.
The city and all its pleasures begin right in front of the hotel’s doors with stunning historic churches, fortresses, business and administrative centeres. The Radisson Hotel Kaliningrad is a combination of a city and a leisure hotel and headed by General Manager John Grieg, a Norwegian national. Besides 178 chic rooms featuring Radisson signature services such as free high speed internet access, the property offers a gourmet restaurant and excellent shopping facilities within the hotel complex. Whether guests choose the modern Standard Rooms or the Deluxe Rooms with their ultra-stylish, light and airy design: The majority of rooms offer views on the historic city centre. Higher room categories also feature extras such as Nespresso machines, bathrobes & -slippers. The Presidential Suite comprises 130 m², 4 rooms, Jacuzzi and sauna.
Enjoy world class specialities in the hotel’s all-day dining restaurant “Verres en Vers”. Serving the lavish Radisson “Super Breakfast Buffet” as well as an international lunch and dinner menu, the restaurant promises to satisfy even the most discerning of guests. The Lobby Lounge Bar offering an extensive drinks menu is tastefully decorated in a modern and contemporary style.
Designed to exceed expectations, the hotel’s 9 meeting rooms span an impressive area of 625 m² and come equipped with the latest technology. The conference rooms range from 40 m² up to 390 m² and are perfect for both large banquets and intimate gatherings.
