If you are visiting Salzburg as a tourist this is a great home base especially for the price. The only thing keeping this from a five star rating, is that the hotel itself was not memorable (but not in a bad way). The location was superb, wifi was great, staff were helpful and the breakfast was very delicious. You will... More

This is an elegant hotel in a very central location in the old town, close to everything. The rooms are small (we had a standard double) but very comfortable and clean. Smallish bathroom but nice sized shower and a great heating rack for towels which also served to dry washing out overnight. Even with the heating turned off the room... More

A wonderful historic hotel in Old Town...steps away from everything you'll want to see. Strolling through the Christkindl Markts was a special experience. If you plan to arrive by car after 11 a.m., call the hotel beforehand to get the code to lower the bollards and get your car in front of the hotel to transfer luggage. Use the entrance... More

Located centrally in the old town of Salzburg, you could not ask for a better location for viisting the Christmas Markets and local tourist sights. The hotel is not too large either so it retains a nice atmosphere, authentically Austrian but with staff who speak very good english so communication is easy. The room (standard double) although not large was... More

The location of this hotel is great - out the door and you're in the walking streets just a few minutes away from the Christmas markets, cathedral and funicular to the Fortress although a little longer to Mirabell Gardens and Kapunzinerburg Hill which is well worth a visit. We had booked a double room, a twin room for our adult... More

Hotel Elefant is located in the actual main tourist area, where a car needs to take the back roads to drive down the cobbled alley way. My taxi could not figure out how to enter the area, so had to get out and walk down two touristy streets from the main road. It is right in the tourist district. About... More

We booked a superior room here and it was excellent in terms of both cleanliness and comfort. The staff were also friendly and the breakfast good. The location could not be better - less than 5 minutes walk to the cathedral and Christmas market. There is a an excellent restaurant at the hotel which is run as a separate franchise.... More

This was one of the most expensive hotels me and my partner stayed at during our holiday. For the price, I would have expected more than just location. I was happy with the facilities but the rooms could have used an update. Breakfast and the staff were lovely. I would recommend if you are doing a short stay.

My wife and I arrived in Salzburg on Monday Dec 8th in the early afternoon via train. From the train station, we took a taxi to Hotel Elefant. The final portion of the cab ride is through some narrow downtown alleys that lead to the hotel front door. What a cool, final portion of the cab ride - almost like... More
