Located on a cobblestone street in the heart of Tallinn's old town, the property was converted into a luxury hotel in 2003 and combines old-world charm with 21st century comforts.
All of the 23 rooms allude to the building's historic past, with original features making each one unique from the other. Despite the nod to its 14th century origins, the features and amenities are resolutely modern, with flat screen tellys, blackout blinds and dimmer lights, and complimentary internet making for an extremely comfortable stay.
Bordoo, the hotel's restaurant, serves delicious food - teetering on the edge of daring, yet spot on. Executive chef Tõnis Siigur has his heart set on getting a Michelin Star, and at the rate he's going, he just might. There is also a lounge bar in the cellar with a very extensive wine list, and the new 3S Bar which overlooks Pikk Street.
Other facilities include a library with a fireplace, a wine bar and a courtyard garden for drinks and outdoor dining in summer. The hotel also has a wide selection of bath goodies on offer, so guests can create their own mini spa in the comfort of their own room.
Located on Pikk Street, the city's main hub in the Middle Ages, the hotel is ideally placed for exploring the history and culture of the old town. It is just a short walk from Town Hall Square, as well as being within walking distance of the main shopping areas and other attractions of the modern city.

Why We Love It
Why is it called the Telegraaf? The elegant building housing the hotel was once Tallinn's telephone exchange, so you shouldn't have any problem getting through to reception.
