We spent two weeks travelling in Germany from Konstanz to Hamburg and places in between. Hotel Elephant was one of our favorite hotels. Great location, professional staff, and clean, comfortable accommodations. We recommend eating at the Elephant Keller for a super special culinary experience.

You have to be careful if you book via Expedia

Pros: Situation
Cons: Room and situation of the room. Looking forward to a good dinner but didn't get one.( Lunch and breaffast excellent)
Location: Excellent
Thw Dutch have a saying, "It's better to stay in the worst room of the best hotel in town than the best room of the worst hotel" No doubt about the Chefs abilities but he tries too hard and the food is spoilt by being over fussy.

visit to Weimar

Posted Aug 7, 2012 on Hotels.com
If you like Art Deco you will love this hotel. Great history, wonderful service. I felt pampered. Ate in the hotel restaurant in the cellar and very much enjoyed it. Breakfast buffet was enjoyable sat outdoors on the patio. Eggs benedict were excellent. At checkout I had unknowingly left a few pieces of clothing in the closet and they were handed to me as I was settling the bill.Town is beautiful, great square, beautiful park.

Good location, no Internet, old business center

Not the best place if you are traveling for business. Their Internet is so slow that it's useless, and the business enter is pretty much useless as well. Staff was VERY helpful though.

Hotel Elephant, Weimar

Posted Jan 2, 2011 on Hotels.com
In the opinion of our German friends, Elephant is known to be the best hotel in Weimar. Indeed, it is a fairly elegant hotel with good, friendly service, conveniently located with its own, safe, parking facility adjacent to the hotel.

The Elegant Elephant

Posted Sep 12, 2010 on Hotels.com
We stayed one night at the Hotel Elephant, it is a beautiful very old hotel with lots of history. We stayed there because it was close to Buchenwald Concentration Camp and was not too far from Eisenach where we toured Luther's House and the Wartburg. We were surprised at how much we enjoyed walking around Weimar, the Hotel is in front of a Plaza where a market was set up the next day and the bells rang on Town Hall - there were plenty of restaurants within walking distance. Overall, the Hotel staff was very friendly and we really enjoyed our stay there. The walls are a bit thin, but not too bad, we experienced that quite a lot in Germany. Our loveseat and chair in our room were a bit worn and we could not get the internet to work, but I would not let that discourage you from staying. The beds were very nice, we had a nice bath room. The breakfast buffet was very nice as well. Overall, if you are going to spend one night in Weimar, this is a very good choice.
