Nice hotel, well located
Staff were friendly and helpful, and the hotel is situated just on the edge of the centre and round the corner from the castle. Breakfast was very good.

Altstadthotel mitten in der Innenstadt gelegen.
Liegt mitten im Stadzentum in Schwerin. Zum Schweriner Schloss ca. 10 Minuten zu Fuß. Wg. Corona keine weiteren Angebote im Hotel. Frühstück gab es in einer Tüte, abzuholen am nächsten Morgen aus einen Kühlschrank. Das dies auch anderes geht beweisen folgende Übernachtungen in anderen Hotels in Mecklenburg. Sonst nichts zu meckern.

Mooi oud hotel met prachtige details, vriendelijk personeel. Wandelafstand tot centrum en kasteel. Maar die oordoppen liggen niet voor niks op je nachtkastje klaar (tram vlak onder je raam langs).

Kurzbericht unserer 'Elefant'-Hotelnutzung
Meine Ehefrau und ich hatten nach Schwerin eine Städtetour geplant. Aufgrund 'Corona‘ konnte leider nicht allzuviel unternommen werden. Wir hatten in Schwerin vor 4-Jahren schon einmal im gleichen Hotel übernachtet. Damals bewohnten wir ein Zimmer zur Straße, diesmal zum Innenhof. Bei der nächtlichen Wärme war es natürlich diesmal ruhiger, kein Verkehrslärm. Recht gut wurde die Frühstückssituation geregelt. Man konnte sich sehr gut bedienen. Das Personal war sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Leider war das Doppelbett für diese Wohnraumabmessungen zu breit, wenig Platz zur bequemen Nutzung. Aber für uns ist es eine gute Adresse.

Tänk efter först, det finns fler hotell
Det enda som egentligen var bra med hotellet var läget och en jättefin ute-terrass, som dock var avsedd för "finare gäster" (tyskar) Vid in-check kl 15.30 var rummet inte städat eller iordningställt för oss, som nya gäster, inget städades eller avtorkades, det gjorde vi själva. Handdukar fick vi vänta till sent på kvällen för att få, efter påstötning. Personalen var allmänt otrevliga och snäsiga om de ens besvärade sig att svara på någon fråga. Det viktigaste för dom var nog de långa kaffe- och rök pauserna. P-platserna var avsedda för bilar modell "SMART". Hotellets framsida, där vi fick vårt rum, vetter mot en spårvagnslinje, dubbel riktning och utryckningsväg för "blåljusfordon" mycket störande. Frukost, ja, men i dessa "corona-tider" behandlades vi gäster som mindre vetande, det var mer pekande med hela handen, än att fylla på faten. På det hela taget är det inget hotell att rekommendera om du inte har turen att hamna på baksidan och att vara tysk.

angenehmer Aufenthalt
sehr freundliches und zuvorkommendes Personal; problemloser Check-in; Parkplatz am Hotel vorhanden (Auto sollte allerdings keine zu großen Abmaße haben); auf gegenüberliegender Strassenseite Hausrenovierung dadurch AKTUELL ein wenig mehr Lärm zu erwarten; perfekte Anbindung mit öffentlichen Verkehrsmitteln, Stadt und Schloß bequem füssläufig erreichbar

Fin og central mulighed
Vi havde behov for en enkelt nat i Schwerin, med parkering. Det var derfor et godt og centralt valg med Hotel Elefant. Bemærk, at adressen til parkering ikke er den samme som selve hotellet. Dog er det ved en bagindgang til hotellet og derfor intet problem. Man skal blot være opmærksom på den. Informationen fra fortæller ikke dette. Værelserne er med fine, dog små. Badeværelset ligeledes. Men alt er rent og fungerer fint. Placeringen er rigtig god med meget kort afstand til Schwerin centrum og slottet. Morgenmaden er rigtig god, med et fint udvalg. Der tages hensyn til covid-19 på alle måder. Vi ville overveje, at benytte samme hotel en anden gang i byen.

Sehr kleine Zimmer, zur Strasse, Strassenbahn und anderer Verkehrslärm, ziemlich laut. Das Personal war sehr freundlich .Das Frühstück war okay. Zum Abendessen waren wir im Restaurant im Haus. Ein großes Lob an den Koch, alles war lecker und wirklich frisch zubereitet.
