The location is absolutely top right in the middle of the historical city centre with all attractions in close walking distance. The rooms are clean and well equipped. THe staff is very friendly and supportive.

Room tip: ask for a room on a higher floor

This hotel is the obvious choice for the history-conscious traveler in Weimar. There is even a historic walking tour within the hotel. The location and atmosphere around the main square is hard to beat. The furniture concept in the public areas, and the furniture quality in the rooms coud make use of a little refurbishment, in order to polish a bit the grandezza and glamour that this hotel undoubtedly had.

The hotel sits on the main square which makes it very easy to access shopping, restaurants and various attractions by foot. If you are driving, the hotel has an excellent, secure parking lot right next to the hotel's side entrance. The front desk staff is superb. The rooms are very nice, but not particularly large. The beds are excellent. If you need to have a pack and play or accommodate children, talk to the hotel desk in advance of your arrival to make sure you have a room that is large enough. The style inside is art deco, but the facade is old and charming.

Room tip: It is in a primarily pedestrian area, so all rooms should be fairly quiet, unless there is a night event on the center plaza.

This was our second visit to Weimar and just a delightful city and hotel. The Hotel Elephant is comfortable and elegant. Service is impeccable and rooms are comfortable. The breakfast is one of the best we have eaten and in a very beautiful room or garden depending on the weather. Would highly recommend this hotel if you are planning a visit to Thuringia. Would also recommend dinner in the Elephantkeller. The trout was one of the best. Service is impeccable and the dining room is quite historic and romantic.

Booked with group tour. There were several private meals with our large group and every one was excellent. Great staff. It is quite old, representing a different era. Yet it has been superbly care for. It is not air conditioned. We were very comfortable without and every room has a fan, which we did not need in our stay. Do not accept a room in the back however. Neighbors and just too close. This is an urban location and you can hear every discussion especially considering the windows must be open this time of year. In other seasons, that would not likely be an issue.

Room tip: Avoid back rooms.
