Great little hotel in the centre of old town. The market square is approx 2 minutes walk and all other attractions are easily reached. Staff all very friendly and helpful. We had a standard room on the 6th floor - was a little small but had pretty much everything we needed. The only thing we missed having was an iPod...

Hotel Telegraaf is a beautiful hotel located perfectly in the heart of Tallinn's old town, the staff are very hospitable & helpful too. Our friends had a room in the old part of the hotel which had beautiful high ceilings on the 5th floor, our room had a more contemporary feel, but was just as lovely on the 2nd floor...

Overall very pleased with our stay, Telegraaf is a beautiful hotel located perfectly in the heart of Tallinn's old town. Requested for a double but got a twin, however the room was in the sixth floor with beautiful views. Breakfast was versatile with sparkling wine and À la carte breakfast menu.

The room in old part ins very nice decorated. Good size. You have everything you need. Only if you watch TV - it does not have a lot of programs and size of screen is small. Swimming pool, sauna and jacuzzi are very nice, we enjoy. but its only 6 sunbeds, so could be not enough. Breakfast was too good!...

I would really recommend this hotel. Not only is the Hotel beautiful inside and out, it is also located in a wonderful part of the city. The street outside is cobbles and it is a very short stroll to many lovely restaurants and bars. From checkin to checkout we couldn't have wished for a more genuinely friendly or efficient service....

Excellent value for money. our twin room was spacious and beautifully appointed, the elemis complementary toiletries were an added luxury and the breakfast was to die for! The spa facilities were spotless and a welcome treat after a cold day outside. I loved the service cupboard and the bottle of mineral water each night.

Hotel Telegraaf is located in Venekatu, in the Old Town of Tallinn. There are lots of nice restaurants close by, everything is within a walking distance. The building that facilitates Hotel Telegraaf is a piece of art itself, perfect location for a high class boutique hotel. Hotel Telegraaf is decorated with a classical style. The lobby bar looks good, and...

I was at Hotel Telegraph for two nights. I HIGHLY recommend this hotel for anyone going to Tallinn! It was very clean, centrally located (in the heart of old town), excellent restaurant (the best in Tallinn) in the hotel. The best part was probably the staff, they were all very friendly and knew Tallinn very well. When I go back...
