We stayed in a suite on Christmas eve night at the Hotel Elephant. As advertised, the hotel is wonderfully situated in the town square and is positioned well for a nice evening stroll around the town. Overall, we found the hotel very stuffy. The lobby has a cigar lounge attached and the lobby was consistently smoke-filled. At the time we were there, it seemed like we were the only non-Germans and non-grey haired guests in the hotel. As it was Christmas eve, we ordered room service which was not bad including homemade taglitelle. The downer was that the person who took our order did not speak much English and did not fulfill our entire order. We were impressed by our breakfast spread but also ran into the same problem where there was little to no English being understood. The hotel seemingly caters to the more “grey haired” generation and we certainly felt like we stuck out like a sore thumb. As previous posts indicate that the hotel has a lot of wear and tear and needs updating, we found that the furniture was just fine and fit well into the motif and character the hotel was trying to accomplish. The Ahner suite we stayed in was like a mini-apartment and was charming in its old world splendor.
