One of the best reasons to visit Tallinn at Christmas is the excellent chance of a white Christmas. If it does snow while you’re in Tallinn, you’ll get to experience one of the most beautiful cities at one of the most beautiful times of the year. In this guide, we list conveniently located hotels near Tallinn Christmas Market so you won’t have to spend too much time walking in the cold weather.
Hotels near Tallinn Christmas Market
Tallinn Christmas Market is held at the Town Hall Square, the large, open main square in the centre of Tallinn’s medieval old town. There are a number of excellent hotels in this area, both historic, traditional-style hotels and modern boutique hotels. You might also consider an apartment stay if you are travelling in a group or simply if you prefer the extra space and privacy that comes with an apartment.
Top PickHotel Telegraaf
Address: Vene 9, Tallinn City-Centre, Estonia
Hotel Telegraaf is one of the most beautiful classically designed hotels in Tallinn. The rooms are plush and luxurious and even though the hotel is only 2-minutes from Town Hall Square, the rooms are incredibly quiet and peaceful. The hotel has all the luxury trimmings you would expect from a 5-star hotel including robes, slippers and considerate staff. The hotel building dates from 1878 and from 1918 until 1992 it served as the main centre of telephone communications in Tallinn as well as a post office.Check Availability
