Reviewed 1 February 2017

Please read my profile for my biases. I usually stay at Marriott properties, but there are none in Tallinn, so based on the recommendations of TripAdvisor I booked here. I wasn't disappointed. The hotel is in an older building that once housed the Telegraph Office, hence the name. I arrived around 13:00 from the ferry and was immediately able to...

All in room facilities were excellent. Breakfast was included and was also excellent. It was located centrally and all main sights were in walking distance. The staff were knowledgable...

We stayed here for 4 nights in December 2016 as an opportunity to enjoy the pre Christmas shopping & the Christmas outdoor market in the Old Town Square. We were not disappointed. The Telegraaf is an elegant older building that manages to combine elegance & character with a modern twist.

Nice hotel situated right in the old town of Tallinn, the hotel is clean and the staff generally very polite and helpful. The room was clean and had a great view over the town and of one of the impressive steeples we also enjoyed the fact that the beds were very comfortable and it's really quiet at night meaning we...

We loved this place! We chose the comfort room in the new section and it was excellent. Breakfast was included and it was by far the best breakfast we had on our travels. This Hotel was not expensive either, great value and great location! Strongly recommend this place!

Stayed for two nights on business. Staff were friendly and helpful. Taxis can't stop outside between certain hours so if you have lots of kit or luggage it's a 100 yard walk. Spa facilities are being renovated and are closed. Room was nice, dark and quiet. I slept very well. Shower wasn't brilliant, low flow and gets the floor wet....

Reviewed 17 January 2017

Very central hotel. The rooms are too small and without any comfort for a 5 star hotel. The staff is unfriendly. Very poor breakfast. For a long time there were no servants in the dining room. There is no one in charge of the dining room. The pool has very cold water.

We stayed just for one night this time at this great hotel. We already knew that the spa-area and the restaurant are under renovation, so we were prepared for that. The older staff is very friendly and efficient but the younger staff are still searching for the efficiency. The renovation did not show very much but there were loud noises...
