UKRAINE Radisson debuts in Odessa

Hotels
A Radisson hotel is to open for the first time in the Black Sea resort of Odessa.

The Radisson Hotel City Centre Odesa will open following the conversion of the existing Hotel Milano on Derybasivska street, a prime location in the heart of the city. This will be rebranded as a Radisson Hotel in early 2021. The Milano, which opened its doors in 2017, is classicist in design and has 90 guest rooms. Another 37 rooms are now to be added to the building, which is undergoing renovations prior to the rebranding, along with a restaurant and meeting space.

The addition of a Radisson hotel in the city of Odessa represents a great achievement for the owners, who have always believed in the city of Odesa as a prime tourist destination and as a hub for the business community of Ukraine. Strong demand has accelerated the growth of the local hotel sector in recent years, but the presence of a leading hotel operator capable of offering high standards in terms of quality and service sets a new benchmark for all travellers visiting this beautiful city.
Marco Sartori, the managing partner of the Hotel Milano Odessa

With the addition of this new property, the Radisson Group will now have eight hotels and 1,445 guest rooms in operation and under development in the Ukraine.
