Hotel Telegraaf

Author: Anothertravelguide.com0 COMMENTS

One of the latest additions to the Tallinn hotel scene, housed in the former telegraph building in the Old Town. Excellent high quality interior design that naturally blends the past and the present into one. Rooms are comparatively large, spacious and light. Dark wood floors, a Venetian mirror, a vintage telephone set, very appropriately for what used to be a telegraph office a mounted collection of early 1900s postage stamps. The bed is very good indeed. The bathroom is stocked with cosmetics by the British spa brand Elemis. Telegraaf even boasts a spa of its own (Elemis, natch), one of the very few in the city centre. The smallish 3x10 metre swimming pool with vapour and traditional baths is enough to help you recover after a hot or rainy summer day before taking off to check out one of the countless Tallinn restaurants... The prices of the spa treatments - EUR 60-70 EUR on average) seem reasonable enough. Some of the rooms come with a tiny balcony of their own (built in the roof niche and equipped with a heated floor) - big enough for enjoying the panoramic view of the new and the old Tallinn on a warm summer night. The hotel restaurant Tchaikovsky is also worth paying a visit; its specialty is classic Russian cuisine with a contemporary twist, like the traditional herring salad with beetroot, eggs, potatoes and mayo (referred to as selyodka pod shuboy, literally "herring under a fur coat" in Russian), served with orange sauce and beetroot foam here - or pan fried sturgeon with crabmeat pelmeni in pomegranate sauce. (Soups and starters EUR 10, main course EUR 20 on average.)
