Hotel Telegraaf, Tallinn

What better place to communicate with the ancient city of Tallinn than from the Hotel Telegraaf, at the very heart of the Old Town?

Originally built in 1878, this white, iced cake of a building was once one of Tallinn’s finest residences. 40 years later, at the formation of the Republic of Estonia, it became the main post office and telegraph centre.

Today, Hotel Telegraaf still communicates with the world’s visitors, in a rather special way. It speaks volumes about service and hospitality, about luxury and comfort. And, with its unique setting in the middle of Tallinn Old Town, it enables you to hear the story of this glorious old city. From Hotel Telegraaf you can explore city walls and watch towers – or wander around the winding cobbled lanes, Medieval buildings, museums and galleries, warehouses and merchant’s barns that date back to the 11th century and the Hanseatic League.
