This hotel was wonderful and the staff were very attentive. Our room was very comfortable. We must have been there on an off day because the breakfast was not good. Even the coffee tasted old. The woman at the next table said, "I can't believe we woke up for this breakfast." The massages were ok. The girls were nice and...

Lovely hotel. Great attention to detail. Room servicing outstanding, room refreshed while we were out in the early evening. We felt pampered! General Manager is visible, and welcomes input. Highly recommended hotel in this fascinating town.

we stayed in the Samuel Morse suite and loved it. The hotel is charming, the breakfast is so delicious, but we do not recommend the spa. They only have two treatment rooms and the masseuse is meh. The facial is better and they use good, Elemis, products.

I spent a lovely weekend in Tallinn, Estonia accompanied by my husband and parents-in-law. We decided to stay at the Telegraaf based on a good offer and Trip Advisor reviews. What can I say? The location of the hotel was very handy - in the very middle of the Old Town. The service was really competent and very friendly. For...

Even with the perfect storm of mishaps during the stay, this hotel easily pulls off four stars. Were it not for the room heater stuck on 28 degrees, ice cold pool water, and tepid at best jacuzzi water temp, it would have gotten the five stars. Location, location, location - right. Directly around the corner from main square of Old...

Ideally located for the tourist in the Old Town of Tallinn, this hotel provides everything you need to be enjoy a visit without the obsequiousness often found in top establishments.
