We spent a fantastic 5 days at Pension Elan back in February 2015 with our 2 kids and parents! It is not only the surroundings, the nature and Arber skiing slopes which made the stay special. It is actually the owners - John and Irina - who create that one and only, exceptional and extraordinary touch of the place. These... More

What a splendid trip this was, the owners were a delightful couple and really made us feel welcome and comfortable at all times. The food was absolutely delicious! Traditional pork knuckle one night and a special dinner of rare delicacies another night. My girlfriend and I stayed for three nights to explore the surrounding area on foot and John haloed... More

Following a weekend skiing with my friends, we stayed here over the weekend in the apartment and it was a wonderful experience. The owners are incredible, warm and kind. The hospitality was out of this world, and we will definitely be back. The food is to die for, all local and fresh. The free hot wine and shots just keep... More

If you are going to Grosser Arber, Pension Élan should be your only choice. The place is wonderful and cozy. The owners were very kind and hospitable. I've never been so much welcomed. They've tried hard to make our stay unforgettable. And I have to say they over exceeded my expectations. Looking forward to going back there again

As part of a short cycling break in the Bavarian Forest and Sumava national park, I stayed for one night with my girlfriend at the lovely Pension Elan before moving over the road to the Pension Sonnenblick where I'd stayed before a couple of years before. On arrival very early on the Friday afternoon, I was warmly greeted by John... More

We absolutely loved Pension Elan. Our room was very clean and the whole place looked newly renovated. Bed was comfy and breakfast was good. The best thing about this place though is the owners; John and his wife were lovely. They really went out of their way, letting us connect the laptop up to the big TV in the breakfast... More

We received a very warm welcome from the owners, John and Ira; they look after their guests extremely well and offer good advice on where to visit. The Pension is just as advertised on the web site and the two types of sauna (infra red and Swedish) were most welcome at the end of a days walking in this beautiful... More

Good starting point for trips and walks in the region on both sides of the german and czech border. As a family, our room was a little bit too small, but everything elese was was so great that we didn't feel... More
