Beautiful hotel right on the main square.

Posted Sep 25, 2016
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.

1 of the nicest hotels we have stayed in recently

Posted Oct 13, 2014
Pros: High class attention to detail, beautiful bedrooms
Cons: Nothing specific
Location: Weimar speaks for itself!!
The Elephant Keller was closed & only opens 5 nights per week. We ate next door in the evening & had breakfast at a nearby cafe/bakers shop. Both were very good.

You have to be careful if you book via Expedia

Posted Aug 20, 2012
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.

The Elephant is an historical hotel on the market square in Weimar very close to all of the the cultural sights (Goethe's house, the Castle, etc.) The service was friendly and very helpful.

A Delight

Posted Jan 3, 2008
Spent a very pleasant 3 days in Weimar. Hotel was a delight: perfect location, in the heart of the 'Altstadt'; beautiful art deco style; comfortable room; pleasant and polite staff, with none of the pomposity of an 'up-market' hotel; very good English spoken; and an excellent breakfast. Room amenities a little less than 5* but, all in all, a very pleasant stay.

Art Deco trip

Posted Oct 17, 2007
Great hotel that seems to be right out of the twenties with it's tasteful art deco appearance, even though it's history goes back some 300 years. The breakfast buffet is one of the best you will find in Europe, so make sure it's included in your booking. When you step out of the hotel you are right in the center of Weimar, on the "Marktplatz" from where you can access all the worthwhile sites n Weimar by foot (including Goethe's Gartenhaus).
