Staff was helpful in giving clear directions for city travel and location of places of interest! Lots of keys helped with feeling secure. There was an old or disagreeable smell in the kitchen area and floors did not feel clean. Bedding was very thin and the duvet covers were very nubby and felt uncomfortable but it was a place to sleep for which we were thankful.

The place is clean and quiet with a kitchen and pretty clean. It also offers free wifi connection. However, the wifi connection quality is pretty low and sometimes just unusable. Good place to stay and not expensive at all!


Very friendly staff. Perfect for the price.

My mom and I stayed here last week and we loved it. The room was clean, as well as the common areas. The location was perfect!


I spent 3 night at Elisabeth Guesthouse. The owners are very nice people, and although everything being a bit old it seemed to be clean. i am definitely not a pernickety person, but the musty smell in the room, in the bedclothes and the provided towels that were definitively unusable because of the smell made me feel uncomfortable. the only reason why i stayed in the guesthouse was that i couldn't find an alternative, but i was glad when i left the place and would not come back.

Das Personal war freundlich und zuvorkommend nur leider hat die Heitzung nicht wirklich funktioniert und bei -5°C war das kaum auszuhalten. Das Bad war zwar einigermaßen sauber, allerdings gab es in einem der Zimmer Bettwanzen. Staff has been very nice. Unfortunately the heating didn't work properly, so we nearly froze to death having -5 degrees outside. Our bathroom has been clean, though there has been a problem with bedbugs in one room.
