Everything was exeptional! Very nice and large breakfast buffet. Nice atmosphere in the heart of Tallinn's lively old town. Very quiet!

Just spent a weekend in Tallinn. The Telegraaf is ideally placed for exploring the Old Town. The hotel is excellent, would definitely stay there again

Telegraaf is located right in the heart of old town, minutes walk from all the good restaurants, pubs and major sight seeing places. It's less than 10 mins drive from the harbour.

Staff is very friendly and will go out of the way to help you. Service is flawless.

Rooms are truly luxurious with nice German postcard pictures in the bathrooms.

They serve a wholesome sit down breakfast with vast options for cereals, eggs, etc.

Elmis Spa is highly recommended but they are mostly sold out during the weekends so advance reservation is a must.

This hotel is right in the middle of the old town, which is a fab location. The hotel is very impressive as it is decadently decorated and the restaurant Tchaikovsky is very good. I only ate breakfast there but there is a very good range of food on offer from eggs (many options) to a buffet of hot food, fruit, pancakes, bread etc.

I used the pool and the jacuzzi, steam room and sauna - the pool is a little small but it is a small hotel. Only once during my stay were there other people in the pool. This is a nice option - I imagine it would be very nice in winter.

The rooms are very comfortable and sumptuous!! I calle dreception to order me a cab to the airport, and ended up with an 8 seater which I think cost a bit more - definitely reiterate that it is for 1 person etc.

Overall a very nice stay! I didn't pay for this hotel, as it was part of my partner's work trip, so I cannot comment on value for money.

I went to Tallinn with 2 of my friends for a girly trip away. Hotel Telegraaf were very accomodating, staff were extremley friendly and could'nt do enough for us. The hotel is in the perfect location, only a couple of minutes walk from the old town where all the best restuarants and cafe's are. The town is very small with only a polulation of around 400,000 so you can easily cover the centre in 1/2 a day.
I would recommend eating in the local restuarant in the hotel which is Russian, excellent service and the food i would say is the best in Tallinn.
The hotel is the only hotel in the city which is recommended by Small Luxury Hotels which says something in itself.
I would go back for sure. Also if you are after relaxation then try the hotel spa, Elemis, fantastic therapists!!!
