The reviews gave me high expectations of Pension Elefant and I wasn't disappointed. I booked our stay as part of a four night break for my husband and I with our two year old daughter. The Pension itself is very well located and a little piece of Berlin history. One of few buildings in the area not to be destroyed... More

We booked this pension not knowing Berlin so we relied on the trip advisor community to give us guidance. Wrong choice for once. The room was OK (spacious) but the building was completely outdated/outworn. The king size bed was actually two single beds put together (with separate linen). The bathroom was not clean. And this part of Berlin is not... More

We spent three night at Elefant and it is a great place to stay. Well located to get around Berlin. The host was friendly and helpful. Would recommend to anyone staying in Berlin. Also had the extras which you don't get in many hotels any more of a kettle and free wifi.

This review is over a year due. My daughter and I stayed here July of 2013, with the same owners as now. It speaks for itself that our stay is still a marvelous and vivid memory. Pension Elefante is perfectly located two blocks from the main shopping street in Berlin, and one block from a main station U-Bahn stop. We... More

We have spend 5 nights at the Elefant. To be honest this is one of the best stays weve encountered, and we travel a lot. The Elefant has a perfect location, smackbang in the middle of the gay village of Berlin, but quit so no troubles sleeping at night. The owner was on a holiday in Spain, but the guy... More

We were a family of 3 so always get awkward solutions. However, with Pension Elefant we got our own little flat (studio flat) with bed sofa and "wall bed" for our daughter. Couldnt have been better. We ended up eating out all the time so no problem. We had read that the place was situated in the middle of the... More

I can recommend it to people that want to live near the u-bahn station and near the park. Clean and good price, quiet place and spacy room with kitchen, TV and Wi-Fi. It was really good there in spring.

We booked an apartment with Pension Elefant, which was not at the main unit but around the corner from it. The apartment was fully furnished, very new and very clean. The kitchen came with lots of cooking equipment, and basic ingredients like oil, salt & pepper, etc. if you ever need to get any cooking done. It did not come... More
