My husband and I stayed at Hotel Elefant in January 2017 and were very pleased with our time there. The reception staff are lovely and very helpful. The day we arrived we had a small issue with the bathroom in our room and once we notified reception it was seen to within 15 minutes. We also met friends for drinks...

Enjoyed a 3 day visit for a 3 day break to visit the Christmas markets in December. Very nice hotel located right in the centre of the old town. It's small but quaint, we had a deluxe room which was very comfortable. Breakfast buffet was good with a decent choice. Only complaint would be that the Hotel Bar allows smoking...

We stayed here for 3 nights in June 2016, (a bit late with the review). Room was very clean & nicely furnished, breakfast was nice & had plenty to choose from. The hotel is nicely situated to explore the old town with plenty of restaurants nearby.

Stayed here over New Year with a group of art and music lovers. The Elefant was perfect for us, very central with comfortable well heated rooms. We were lucky as we were given a twin at the front of the building overlooking the street but not noisy as the street is mostly pedestrianised. Very good breakfasts each day in the...

Our stay in Hotel Elefant was top notch. We had the deluxe standard room I believe. We didnt really have a view, but it was fine. We had delicious breakfasts both days, and loved how we were able to walk to everywhere from the hotel, very central location.

Hotel Elefant is right in the heart of Salzburg's Old Town. It has a rich history dating back over 200 years. Very nice service, nicely appointed suite with a living room, bedroom, & full bath. All was clean and neat. Excellent breakfast. If you stay here, please view the antiques, old papers in cases, etc... The only thing lacking (for...

The Hotel Elefant is very well located in the old town of Salzburg. We enjoyed our stay and the central location was superb. Very close to St. Peter's Church and the Festung Hohensalzburg. A short walk across the river to the Mirabell Palace and gardens. We had a wonderful time wandering the old town and seeing all of the churches...

This hotel was located in the city center with easy access to everything. The room was nice and well furnished and bed was firm. Breakfast was average, but well maintained. It was a bit stressful driving through the tourist pedestrian area to drop off our luggage. Would have also been nice if the hotel would have let us know the...
