    The reception smelled of "old furniture" and humidity. The breakfast offered frozen bread - the staff was unfriendly - the facilities are out of date and from another era, This hotel may be suited for senior travelers, but it does not offer anything for younger couples.

    Limited parking space at the hotel. I have booked in advance and have got confirmed parking spot, but when arrived they said there is no parking. After some negotiations, they found solution, so it was ok at last. Interiors look dated. People smoke cigarets in the hotel garden so it's not nice to sit outside. Difficult to comunicate with staff in English.

    Great location. Comfortable bed. Big room and clean. Friendly for pets. Door with proper key so dog cannot open it.

    Noisy room. It was like a little earthquake every time the tram stops in the station nearby. Very hot in the room, about 30°C in the evening and no AC. So a mini-sauna! Dusty windows, bathroom not so clean... Im sure you can find better place to stay in Schwerin.

    Good location. The breakfast room is impressive. In fact it was an old ballroom with walls decorated with elephants.

    Excellent staff and outstanding restaurant (both breakfast and dinner). The location is close to everything, but right on the light rail line. We had no issues with noise, but we kept the windows closed.

    The floor is making some noises when walking around but no such a problem for us. The parking was a bit hard to find by car but someone from hotel helped without hesitation.

    Parking places, the hotel room, the eating saloon, friendly personnel always to help. Would recommend to anyone who would like to spend the weekend in Schwerin!

    Small quibbles only. Our room wasn't cleaned one day. Water temperature in shower fluctuated. Power point ought to be more accessible than requiring a crawl under the desk.

    Great hotel, with the breakfast being the best we've encountered for a long time. Comfortable, quiet room. Convenient for tram and bus if needed, but easy walking distance from Schwerin Mitte station and all the sights of the city centre.

    • Leisure trip
    • Solo traveller

    While it did not bother me, the hotel is located on a tram line and somewhat (relatively -- Schwerin in general is a fairly quiet little city) busy road; light sleepers might find this a drawback. (The hotel thoughtfully leaves earplugs on the pillow, however.) Also, a 5 € daily charge for wifi is a bit much nowadays.

    The Elefant is located just a few blocks from the pedestrian zone of Schwerin, within 15 minutes' walk of the castle, State Museum, State Theatre, Schweriner See, and many of the city's other main sights. The rooms are reasonably sized, the bathrooms are pleasantly modern, and everything is spotlessly clean. Staff are friendly and helpful. Hotel breakfast room is delightful for architecture fans, with a stained glass skylight and carved elephant decor dating from 1870.
