Conscientious staff, a very central location and an Elemis day spa make Tallinn’s Telegraaf Hotel a genuine Estonian treat. The 1878 building was originally an exchange station for the Estonian Telegraph company and now stands proud as one of the town’s top places to lay your head.
The style here is contemporary and polished – rooms are tastefully done, with many boasting Old Town views. The luxe smellies, indoor pool and a full-service spa add that extra touch of comfort. But what really makes this boutique hotel stand out is the fantastic service. Staff are unfailingly attentive and really go out of their way to ensure you have a great stay.
A good breakfast is served and is included in most room rates (check details below). Restaurant Tchaikovsky is rather grand and serves delicious Russian/French fusion dishes using the finest local ingredients. The restaurant also has a lovely terrace serving dishes from a separate, lighter menu during the warmer months.
Rooms are elegant and tasteful, with big comfy beds and good bathrooms. It's worth noting that some rooms are set in a more recently added extension to the back and are more modern in design. We would recommend upgrading as some of the nicer rooms come with a bath, ideal for a soak after a long day out and about.
There is an Elemis spa offering a wide range of facials, massages, body and hand therapies. The hotel also boasts a sauna, a steam bath and a small but elegant swimming pool with classically-inspired fountainheads on the walls.
The hotel is nice and central – located in the Latin Quarter of Tallinn, it’s on the border of the Old Town and only a minute walk from City Hall Square. Tallinn is UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the best preserved medieval cities in Europe, so if you’re a bit of a culture vulture you’ll be spoilt for choice.
