This hotel should tick all the boxes: very good location in the middle of the old town, historical building with a lot of nice modern touches And there is a lot of staff available who will give you personal attention. So normally, it would mean a "five star" TA rating. However, out of our 3 nights stay we had 2...

We spent a weekend at Hotel Telegraaf and I would come back anytime! Both Tallinn and this hotel was a pleasant surprise for me. The interior was very nicely decorated, the room was great, and the spa very nice. I also took a treatment which was very good. The only negative point would be that the floor was very slippery...

Just back from Tallinn where we stayed at Hotel Telegraaf. Everything was perfect: the room was nice and big, extremely quiet and the location is the best in town - literally around the corner from the main square in the old town. Close to restaurants, museums and others sights. But probably the best of all is the staff - extremely...

We've stayed at Telegraaf for 4 nights and could say that this is nice hotel in Old Town. Location is great, lobby is very attractive, service (in general) is good. But when you stay at SLH property you expect LUXURY hotel. Unfortunately this is not the place for luxury stay. Rooms needs to be renovated, corridor's carpets should be cleaned....

Stayed here one night on a business visit to the local hotel school. What a gorgeous property. It's one of only two small luxury hotel of the world properties in Estonia and in every way it deserves the reputation. Location is ideal, only 3 minute walk from heart of the old city of Tallinn. Rooms are exquisitely furnished with little...

What a wonderful way to begin a visit to the Baltic area. This hotel is in the old town, yet on a quiet street and has both old world charm and new world amenities. Terrific breakfast in a beautiful setting. Enjoyable spa and decent pool. Attentive staff, spacious basic room, very clean.
