We were a group of eight friends, and we had a wonderful stay at the Telegraaf hotel. Be sure to eat at the Tchaikovski restaurant at the hotel - superb food and excellent service. And if you want massages or other treatments you should book it well in advance. It's popular! The hotel is right in the middle of everything,...

The Hotel was for us faultless; location, atmosphere, friendly efficient service, elegance, superb food, delightful room, immaculately clean, best value ever for a 5 star hotel and unlike larger less personal 5 star hotels. Felt pampered for the entire 9 days spent there and cannot wait to return.

We just got back yesterday after spending 4 nights at this hotel in the middle of the old town. Our adventure began when I sent an e mail to the hotel asking for a price for the hotel transfer from the airport. After being quoted 28 Euros for a luxury transfer we decided to either take a taxi or public...

The hotel was ok. The disapointing things where the size of pool room. Small pool, small steam rooms. The breakfast did not impress. The choices to eat was few, and you had to wait for a table if you took a late breakfast. The room was very good (deluxe room). Nice size for a couple.

Our family spent two night at Hotel Telegraaf in mid-July and loved it. The rooms were large by European standards and nicely decorated. The hotel is in a great location - easily walkable to everything in the historic district, but a little bit off the beaten path so you don't have noise from the street. The staff are wonderful. When...

The hotel is the old Post Office for Tallinn, and is therefore very centrally located. Part of the hotel is thus a national monument, the rest is new. The restaurant is formal and respected as one of the best formal places to eat dinner in the city - but they can recommend other places to eat in their 'sparkling group'....

Very nice hotel in Old town. Staff was really professional and helpful. Room was awesome and quiet. Also stopped at spa, saunas are quite nice but place was crowded. If you want to have spa treatments, book in advance. The best part was breakfast, totally amazing and fresh! Dog friendly hotel ❤️
