Nice hotel with old fashioned touches

Posted Jun 4, 2017
Our only complaint is that there are no air condtioned rooms. It was pretty warm in our third floor room when we arrived. It cooled down outside at night and the hotel provided fan was much appreciated. The room was clean and large, the staff gracious and the restaurant Anna Amelia very good. There's a large hotel owned parking lot next to the hotel with access from a side strret and easy pedestrian access to the lobby

Fantastic location right in the heart of historic Weimar. The attached bar served great drinks with a very friendly staff who spoke perfect English. The only slight miss was the lack of climate control in the room.

Pros: Very friendly front desk. Did everything to make our visit special.
Spacious room with all the amenities. Lot's of great restaurants nearby. Just a couple of blocks from Goethe and Schiller's homes and a few more blocks to Liszt's apartment. Wonderful dinner at the partner restauran,t the Swan right next to Goethe's house.

This was an excellent hotel, perfect location on the market square, and very comfortable rooms. The main gripe was that for a hotel of this style and quality, it's really poor form to be charging extra for in-room internet connections; I'd rather not have to sit in the lobby to send and receive emails after a day of meetings. Other than that, it's a great hotel

Where do they have the five stars from? I guess these days are long ago.

Hotel Elephant in Weimar

It was not the first time we stayed at the Hotel Elephant and it shall not be the last. We shall stay only there when we return. Comfortable clean rooms, modern bathrooms(most important!) and a perfect location.
