Arrived to Telegraaf in Good Friday. We had selected a classy hotel in order to enjoy a family holiday with our children, friends and their child. Telegraaf has a brilliant location in the middle of Tallinn and is therefore a good choice for a short holiday. However, the service did not live up with our exceptations. The personnel in the...

The hotel is very unassuming from outside, but don't be deceived! Inside you are made immediately welcome by the staff in the small reception area. After being quickly checked in, the room allocated was adequately sized, with a very comfy bed and all the facilities you would expect from such a good quality hotel; the only thing missing from the...

We stayed in the newer portion of the hotel (near the spa). The room did not face the street which made it much more quiet and comfortable. The staff is very attentive and the service is as expected at a 5 star hotel. The hotel restaurant is one of the best in the city and did not disappoint. Both the... More

This is a belated review of our 4-night stay at Hotel Telegraaf back in August 2010. After spending 3 nights at Swissotel Tallinn (another commendable establishment), we were ready to move into the Old Town of Tallinn. Situated in a nicely restored historical building, the hotel is just around the corner to the Medieval Town Hall. We took a Superior... More

This is a great place to base yourself during a trip to Tallin. Surrounded by authentic buildings and cobbled streets, it gives a flavour of Tallin along with great views of both the old and new city from the upper stories. Friendly welcoming staff and excellent food make it hard to beat.

Hotel Telegraaf is worth the high praise it receives and is perfect in every respect. From the comfortable, luxurious rooms to great food and wonderful old town location, it provides the perfect place to visit Tallinn. In particular, its location in Old Town is perfect for exploring on foot.

It was our first visit to Tallin and we had really no idea what to expect, we were greeted by friendly professional staff who all spoke perfect English, nothing was too much trouble. The young man who showed us to our room explained where to find all the usual tourist spots and tried to resist when we tipped him. The... More

Telegraaf Hotel was a great find. The location was ideal for exploring the beautiful old town and the building itself has a good history and character. Top this up with a cosy spa with an indoors swimming Pool and a Jacuzzi, a great hotel team -especially in the restaurant-, and an elegant room and you have a winning combination in... More
