We stayed for 3 nights at the Hotel Elefant in November 2013 as part of a weekend break to Salzburg (4 Adults). Only a fairly short cab ride into the city centre from the airport, the hotel is well situated and within an easy walk of the majority of Salzburg's main attractions. The rooms are tastefully furnished and the beds... More

I just got back from my stay, and Hotel Elefant was great. First off, it is in a wonderful location. It is in the heart of old town Salzburg, steps away from Getreidegasse, the main squares, and the Cathedral. With a location like that, in an old building, I am usually willing to accept some other faults, but I did... More

Loved our stay at the Hotel Elefant. Perfect location in the old town. Our room package included the taxi from the train station and also the Salzburg pass which was awesome to have. Our room was very nice, clean, AC and a walk in shower which we like also we had a view of the fortress. Breakfast was served in... More

A very cozy hotel in an amazing location. This hotel is right in the middle of Salzburg old town. It is pretty much a perfect location to explore all the major sites. Rooms were a bit on the small side, but we were only there for one night, so couldn't really complain.

My family had two rooms at the Hotel Elefant in July 2014. They were such a suprise. Both rooms were charming, more like small apartments. The first room had an entry way with a powder room off of it. This was so convenient. Then you entered through another door that led into the main room. It was very large even... More

The hotel is a very charming hotel in a great location close to everything. It's nice to be within walking distance to the old town so you can go back to the room when you want. We asked for a quiet room and were given one! We would definitely stay there again.

I stayed here on a trip with my partner as part of a four day city break. The hotel is ideally located, right in the old town, surrounded by the beautiful narrow streets full of shops and restaurants. If your sight seeing in the city it couldn't be better. The hotel is small and has a family feel (although it... More

The Elefant is perfectly located in the old town, just off the main shopping street - the whole area is pedestrianised apart from taxis. I saw some comments on Tripadvisor about noisy rooms but we were in 411 and it was really quiet - i did have a bit of balcony envy though as I noticed one room on the... More

My wife and I and 2 children (ages 5, 3) stayed for 2 nights in June. The hotel location is perfect, right in the heart of Salzburg on a quiet side street. You are just steps from many of the major sites, including the fortress. The staff was incredibly nice and accommodating. The rooms were quite large and very quiet.... More
