Really nice hotel. Lovely old world touches. My room had a private sauna. Concierge was attentive. They even helped my husband buy me flowers and delivered them to my room. Breakfast was lovely. Nice spread of cold cuts, pickles, fruits, yogurts, pastries, and eggs made to order.

Location and decor are what we appreciated most. Service and guests welcoming&care the least. They are seriously lacking for a 5 star hotel. The hotel's staff, with a couple of exceptions, are just not attentive, kind and warm to their guests and everything we asked seemed to be an issue for them. The breakfast was missing in variety and the room was too small to accommodate everyone. No welcoming ever at the door. Some waiters could not understand English, and could not follow up on the order. For one dinner we had at their well-known restaurant, we waited 5 minutes to be accompanied to our table. The food and menu were not at level with what we were expecting and the dining hall was also quite cold, as it was, that day, the rest of the common areas. We asked at Reception to have a blanket while seating at Reception after dinner and we were told to ask the Restaurant, as they might have had some from the summer! The rooms are nicely decorated but the cleaning was done on a rush. Beds were not made nicely and the bathroom was not cleaned properly. Cleaning around personal belongings without even drying the lavabo. Hair left in the shower, etc. The Spa was closed in the morning of January 3rd. We counted on it as we had a late check-out on that day. Speaking of which, we asked to postpone the midday deadline and we were kindly granted up until 2pm. We then asked how much we should pay to extend until 17:00 and we we were told that from 2pm to 3pm we had to pay half the rooms and from 3pm to 5pm the total cost of the room for one day! Note that the hotel was emptying completely by all departures. Moreover, on the morning of January 1st, we were presented with a bill of 200€ for allegedly smoking in the room. We spoke to the Hotel Manager and she took that off, but the point is that someone from Reception must have thought that it was a good idea, instead of talking to us, to give us a letter through the door - which we thought it was a Happy New Year note from the hotel! The SPA is far too small and so crowded, as a consequence. Massages also were fully booked, as they only have 2 rooms for treatment. Finally, on check-out, not one person asked how we enjoyed our stay. So, no way to know if and where to improve. In summary, a disaster of customer service from start to finish. Said this, the hotel is beautifully located and furnished. But I would not recommend it to anyone looking for a 5 star experience.

Great hotel in a great location in Tallin Old Town. Rooms are absolutely amazing, decorated in an old luxury style but not at all outdated. This hotel oozes luxury but is not expensive. We also had the pleasure of dining at the hotel for breakfast. The customer service was exceptional and the food was also fantastic. I would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay here again.

The hotel room was nice, although the shower had a water-saving shower head. As a result, showering was quite a chilly experience in December, as the room was also a bit on the chilly side. Wouldn't describe the breakfast to be luxurious in any sense, quite standard. Although there were three to four waiters in the dining hall the plates ran out and were noticed by the staff only when pointed out. Also, the staff neglected to mention the breakfast eggs had to be ordered from the kitchen. We learned this only after the breakfast. The breakfast table had salmon, but had quickly run out, and the waiters did not refill it. We stayed one night, and the spa was only available on the day of the check-in till 10 o'clock, not on the next morning. Overall, the staff was friendly, not particularly helpful and bit on the unexperienced side. Didn't feel like a five star hotel, really.

Dear aeolus-fin, Thank you for sharing your feedback about your recent stay at Hotel Telegraaf. We're pleased you liked our rooms, but we're concerned to hear about the aspects of your visit that didn't meet your expectations. Regarding the shower, our hotel is dedicated to sustainability efforts, and part of this commitment involves using water-saving shower heads. We understand this might have been less comfortable during the colder months, and we're exploring ways to balance our environmental responsibilities with guest comfort. For breakfast, we aim to offer a luxurious experience and regret that we didn't meet this standard during your stay. We're addressing the issues you mentioned, such as replenishing popular items like salmon more promptly and ensuring plate availability. We also acknowledge the need for clearer communication about our breakfast offerings, including the order process for eggs. We apologize for the inconvenience regarding our spa's limited availability. We value your feedback and will consider it as we review our spa hours to better cater to our guests' needs. Your comments about our staff's service have been noted. Continuous training is a priority for us to ensure our team provides the support and hospitality that our guests expect from a five-star hotel. We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back to Hotel Telegraaf, where we can better demonstrate our commitment to both sustainability and guest satisfaction. Warm regards, Eliise Allingu Front Office Manager Hotel Telegraaf

A perfect location for exploring Tallinn. Everything is perfectly walkable and right at your door step. To note - taxis do not drop you off at the door and you do need to walk about one block to the hotel with your bags. Our room was on the top floor and was very quiet and comfortable (unless you opened your window in the morning as you can hear the neighbouring school children yelling and playing). The bathroom was a little tight, but everything was clean and comfortable. Service was good but we felt the breakfast cost did could not be justified (as we are light eaters in the morning). We thought it was a nice touch to have a pillow menu for the ultimate sleep.

Dear MeganMunro, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience at Hotel Telegraaf. We are delighted to hear that our central location in Tallinn's Old Town provided you with an ideal base for exploring the city's charm. We recognize that while traditional taxis arrive directly at our hotel entrance, there is a tendency for Bolt drivers to stop a short distance away, despite being able to reach the hotel as well. We appreciate your flexibility in this matter and hope that this did not significantly inconvenience you. It's wonderful to know that your top-floor room offered the quiet and comfort you desired, and we apologize if the morning sounds from the nearby school disturbed your peace. We aim to provide a serene environment for all our guests, and your feedback is invaluable in achieving this. We understand your comments regarding the bathroom's size and are pleased that the cleanliness and overall comfort met your expectations. Your note on the breakfast cost is duly noted, especially for guests with lighter appetites. We are constantly looking for ways to enhance our offerings and will certainly consider your suggestion. Lastly, we're thrilled that the pillow menu added a special touch to your stay, contributing to a restful sleep experience. Thank you once again for choosing Hotel Telegraaf. We look forward to welcoming you back and continually improving your experience with us. Warm regards, Eliise Allingu Front Office Manager Hotel Telegraaf

I stayed for a few nights at this excellent hotel in a perfect location in old town. As a platinum Bonvoy member, I was upgraded and I had daily breakfast included. I ate at the restaurant several times, and the food was very good indeed. All the staff were very accommodating and friendly and helpful. The hotel location is unbeatable. if you come to Tallinn, this should definitely be on your list of hotels to stay.

Autograph Collection hotels are beautifully designed places. I can highly recommend one in Batumi as well as this one- situated in Old Tallinn. The personnel is attentive and the Tchaikovskii restaurant in the ground floor is definitely worth a visit. So if you happen to be in Tallinn- head to this one!
