Hotel Telegraaf is a lovely hotel in an excellent location in the old town. The room was on the small size, but the service made up for that in a big way. The lovely young ladies at the front desk helped me make ferry reservations to Helsinki and although that sounds quite simple, it was far from it. It took... More

A truly beautiful town and the hotel could not have been better located to see and enjoy the beauties that this Baltic town has to offer. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The rooms were beautifully appointed and the fine dining experience in Tchaikovsky restaurant is one of the highlights of the trip.

This hotel was relatively pricey but we were very pleased to be staying there. It is located in the old town, only a couple of minutes' walk to the Town Square. The English-speaking staff were friendly and helpful, even arranging a kettle to be brought to my room. I love the "service cupboards" to and from which staff can deliver... More

Been there for a two night business trip. The hotel is ideally located in the old city center. Had a nice room in the old part of the building, which nevertheless was quiet. The staff was very attentive, especially the hotel manager. Alas, I did not habe time to try the restaurant or the spa.

We stayed here on our final night in Estonia. Receptionist was very, very quiet and did a basic check in but didn't explain any hotel facilities or the local area. Also didn't check that the room booked was per our expectations. Hotel was clean but lacked soul and atmosphere. Room was comfortable but not remarkable and could have been anywhere... More

Telegraaf is a modern hotel, in the heart of Tallinn's lovely old-town, masquerading as a 100-year step back in time. Telephones are old-fashioned hand-crank phones, but they have modern push-button dialing. The service is excellent; the concierge never steered us wrong. And the Tchaikovski restaurant is superb (with excellent Oscetra caviar, I might add). If you have the budget for... More

Missed the boat to Helsinki and needed a hotel. Someone recommended us this hotel and it was perfect. In the heart of old town. The hotel staff was very polite and smilingly friendly. You felt very welcome there. The room was not only clean, but extremely clean. Next time need a hotel in Tallinn I know where to go.

Had a lovely stay here recently. Fantastic location in the old town. Great food. Lovely spa area to relax after a days walking the city sights. Very comfortable bed. Had great sleep every night. Only downside was tiny room with very restrictive moving space with awful view onto window roof of restaurant from both bedroom and ensuite. Also ensuite room... More
