Excellent family run hotel. Ideally situated for a couple of days in Salzburg. Everything is within walking distance. We liked the history of the hotel and that it is still family run. The building is old but beautifully maintained and updated. Unlike the larger chains of hotels which we find soulless, this is charming. The staff were helpful. The rooms... More

Very central, charming staff, nice room although very small. Bathroom (shower only) was clean but a little tired and drab in decor. A great place for a couple of nights although next time I would pay a little extra for a larger room and possibly a view across the street and not out the back.

Stayed here for 5 nights. This hotel is right in the city center, just max 15 minutes far from the main attractions: Resinedzplatz and Palace, Mirabell Palace and gardens, Hohensalzburg Palace, Mozart Square and Birthplace, Haus der Natur. The hotel is nice and frequently you have a strange feeling that you jumped back in the medieval period. All the old... More

A really well situated hotel in the old town. Plenty of character, nice rooms,not much in the way of a view but then the streets are narrow so you would tend to be looking into other buildings anyway. Perfect location for exploring the beautiful old town and close to public transport if you want to go further afield. Staff efficient,... More

We spent three nights at Hotel Elefant, in Salzburg, in September, 2014. The hotel is in the pedestrian-only zone, jut around the corner from Mozart's birthplace. One can drive into that zone to drop off or pick up luggage, but It is a bit tricky. The hotel includes directions on how to enter the zone, where they are located, and... More

We were looking for a hotel with personality and charm in the old town of salzburg and chose With crossed fingers! From the minute we checked on, we knew we had chosen well.... Attentive and helpful staff, quirky antique furniture on each floor and a really good breakfast buffet. The location is perfect and the church bells on Sunday morning... More

Our first impression of the hotel was ok after the speediest check in ever - about 10 seconds! We felt the reception staff did not connect with their guests. A little more interaction and conversation would be good. The room was fine; very clean. The hotel has a great location right in the middle of everything. We loved Salzburg, it... More

A little difficult to get to if you enter the old town after 11 AM as automobiles are restricted in this part of town but worth the trouble. I would note in this same regards after dropping off bags you must use underground parking, but it really is simple to get to and the hotel provides clear instructions on how... More

Lovely, lovely hotel in the heart of the old town. We were close to all key places and thoroughly enjoyed exploring all the old town had to offer. The room and bathroom were very spacious and nicely decorated. The staff were very helpful and accommodating as well.

I just wanted to send a note to management regarding my stay. I was with a friend and we stayed October 23 & 24. The front desk manager, Judda was wonderful. She was incredibly helpful in giving us city directions, guiding us with our questions (we had a lot of them!) and even assisting us with postcard stamp purchases. I... More
