The magnificent building Hotel Telegraaf, as we know it today, was built in the Old Town of Tallinn at Vene Street 9 in 1878. Designed by the architect Peter Schreiberg from St. Petersburg, it was originally a four-storey house, the two topmost floors added later. The enormous wealth of the citizens of Tallinn demanded appropriate banking, and the famous Handelsbank with branches throughout Germany and Russia, occupied the ground floor, whilst the upper floors contained elegant apartments. At the beginning of World War I the bank closed and, resisting the Bolshevik Revolution, Estonia became independent. At this time Handelsbank ceased operations, and in 1918 the Telegraaf House came into its own! It became the main centre of communications – a great post office with full telephone services offered to public.
Hotel Telegraaf is ideally located at the beginning of Vene Street. It is situated next to the gabled houses, half-hidden courtyards and the Town Hall Square. Unparalleled service and a mix of historic ambience make it the ideal choice for discerning business and leisure travellers. City centre, fashion boutiques and cultural institutions are only walking distance away. Arriving from the Tallin Lennart Meri Airport, the hotel is less than 15 minute drive away. Travel from harbour and train station is around 10 minutes.
The hotel´s 83 rooms, including 3 standard suites and 1 Presidential Suite, are designed in Modern Art style with Art Deco touches and offer refined and elegant decór. Most of the rooms feature Medieval Old town views.
Each room incorporates a medium sized bathroom, air-conditioning and safe along with free Wi-Fi high speed internet access. In addition, an in-room service cabinet is convenient for guest’s minimum disturbance. Furthermore, a flat screen television set supplies a wide range of entertainment options.
