“Really nice hotel, terrible location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 December 2010

The Elbotel Rostock is located halfway between Rostock city and Warnemünde, tucked away on a sidestreet. It is a good budget alternative to the more expensive hotels, at the expense of it's less attractive location.

POSITIVE ASPECTS
From outside the building looks like a typical east-german block, but the socialist flair doesn't last for long - the lobby, the dining hall and most importantly, the rooms, are all fresh, modern and elegantly furbished. The bathrooms are spotless and very spacious. Plenty of parking spaces are available right in front of the hotel.

NEGATIVE ASPECTS
It is hard to find a worse location - far away from the beaches at Warnemünde and equally far away from downtown Rostock. Reaching the hotel is a bit of a task, with plenty of turns from the main roads, so it is highly recommended to bring a GPS or study a map before arriving.

PUBLIC TRANSPORT
The tram stop "Kunsthalle" is located about 1,5km away. From there, trams run frequently to downtown Rostock. The train stop "Bramow" on the Rostock-Warnemünde line is much closer (about 500m from the hotel) where suburban trains run on an hourly basis.

IN CONCLUSION
If you are coming for the beach in Warnemünde or a city-stroll in Rostock, this might not be the ideal choice. But if you are simply looking for a comfortable overnight-stay, this is the right place! Apart from the location, there isn't anything negative to point out. The hotel is equipped for small tourist groups but is not recommended for business travellers.

This hotel is an excellent choice when you have to stay over for the night because you go to or come from Finland by boat. Good location, very nice, very clean and spacious rooms. Nice beds too, I just found the pillow too thin and small (which is strange for a German hotel). We had two rooms connected by a little hallway; very suitable for a family with four persons.
Breakfast was good in a nice and very quiet restaurant with garden view. Staff is friendly and helpful. I left my bag in the restaurant, and when I came back (within a few minutes), the bag was already handed over to the front desk.
We had reservation for just one night, but we wanted to stay longer, just because of the rooms.

If you're looking for a place to stay overnight in Rostock, the Elbotel fits the bill. The hotel is only about 20mins from the ferry terminal, but well away from the centre of town and the beach.

Don't think the architect won any prizes but the rooms are very clean and spacious. Booked a suite online which suited a family of 4 for less than euro 80. Didn't have the breakfast which was extra.

Friendly helpful staff and even a PC for internet use.

Fit for purpose, as they say.
