            • Older travelers

              We made a booking 10 days before my stay. Once we arrived a substandard room was given to us. The room on a 1 floor , a window was by a roof that was under construction : dirty , full of building materials and bad smell. Since the hotel has no aircondition , to keep normal temperature the window should have been opened what was not possible due to the above mentioned repair of the roof. After short discussion at the reception we were offered very good room. At the hotel of this class such situation should not have happened.

              The location is perfect; the room was spacious and clean; the breakfast was varied and of good quality, the staff was helpful and pleasant.

              Unreliable and not complimentary WLAN (wi-fi) Internet connection

              We enjoyed our stay at the historic Elephant. Our room was large and lovely. The hotel is in the main square and an easy walk to all of the sites.

              Excellent hotel - a very delicate mixture of the ancient and the modern details. Comfortable parking and really a fascinating view during breakfast.
