Our six night stay at hotel elephant was great. Check in and check out or easy. The staff was extremely friendly, and very helpful with local information. The breakfast buffet was excellent, offering coffee, tea, juices, lunch meat, cheese, eggs, fruit, yogurt and cold cereals. The location was very convenient to the sightseeing in the city.

The hotel is 700 years old, and right in the middle of old town. It's easy to walk from the hotel to just about anywhere. The staff were friendly - especially Gerhard who went out of his way to help us with anything. The room was very nice also. Since there are no cars on the street, it's best to not drive. If you do, as we did, there is an enormous parking garage built inside a mountain - 10 - 12 minutes away.

The best thing about this hotel is its outstanding location. Right in the central area and walkable to many sites. We were put in their “Family Hotel” section. It was a bit of a maze inside the hotel to find the room. The room itself was nice, much like a business hotel with separate bed area and living/desk area with a couch. It was a bit dark. Clean. The one major problem we had was the TV in the bedroom area was hung low on the wall and stuck out. The person sleeping on the far side of the bed had to navigate getting around it every time getting up or going to the bathroom. I ended up hurting my shoulder several times because the area was just not wide enough to not hit the edge of that TV. My recommendation would be they just eliminate a TV in the bedroom area as there in one in the sitting area as well. Breakfast was not included and we declined to spend the 18 Euros per person to have it. There are plenty of restaurants and coffee places nearby to have breakfast. One night there were also partiers outside the hotel until quite late, but that is to be expected in the central location of any hotel. Overall the best thing is the location.

The Hotel Elefant was just amazing. We had a family room which was huge by european standards. It had air conditioning and a view of downtown. You do have to drive into a pedestrian zone to unload you baggage. But when I had problems with the code, the staff came down to help. The room was clean. Breakfast was delicious. My family had an excellent time.
