The hotel was everything we needed a hotel to be. A superbly comfortable bed, plenty of choice at breakfast, modern and stylish, pleasant staff, quiet and warm rooms. The Elefant Hotel is slightly out of the centre by a 5 or 6 Euro taxi ride or a 2 Euro bus ride. Had we stayed in a town centre based hotel...

Rooms were very nicely decorated and so clean. Huge windows were a big plus even though we were at the ground floor. Customer service was excellent in reception and in the restaurant. I also enjoyed the buffet breakfast not to mention the elephant on the restaurant.

I visited the Rixwell Elefant Hotel in Early February 2017 with family. Beautiful hotel with nice rooms and nice bathrooms, nice facility with good decor, but very average breakfast. As a vegetarian i didn't have a wide range of option for breakfast and everything was very basic and plain.

I found an offer of 32€ per night (2 person) on booking.com Stayed there during TechChill 2-day conference event. We got a room right at the main road where was a lot of traffic. Although I asked for a quiet room I was placed there. The sound-proofing does minimize the noise, but sometimes you could really hear the traffic. One...
