Right in the middle of the old city, very nice room size (we got an L shaped room in the old hotel). The staff was very good and breakfast was also nice. Authentic feel with plenty of modern remodeling. Lots to do and see in the old town and city walls, go out early to enjoy it all and minimize... More

Good sized room, friendly and helpful staff, good breakfast and excellent location. Great base for exploring Salzburg as located centrally. Small boutique hotel. Comfortable bed but tricky shower. Recommended.

This is a very nice mid-price hotel in the heart of Salzburg. We were able to walk everywhere with no problems. The service is wonderful and a nice breakfast was included. I would definitely stay here again if I ever get back to Salzburg. Of course, parking is outside of the city walls but the walk is easy. There is... More

I stayed one night in a single room at a discounted rate and was generally pleased with my experience. Though obviously small, my room was comfortable, well-appointed, and spotlessly clean. The wifi worked OK. On the whole, I found the hotel quite charming, especially the pleasant sitting room on the first floor. The breakfast was excellent. There is a restaurant... More

Stayed at this property for 3 nights. The only thing good is the location. Right in the heart of old town. All major sights are just a walk away. The quality of the hotel is very mediocre. The executive rooms very also very average with no view. Reception staff were nice. The house keeping staff were a nightmare. They wanted... More

We stayed here for four nights. At the time of booking it was a Best Western affiliate but is now a privately owned hotel. Our room was large and well equipped. The air conditioner actually worked and cooled the room. In three weeks in Hungary and Austria staying in good hotels this was the only hotel with effective air conditioning.... More

This hotel is a really great stay! It feels so sweet, and the rooms are really quaint. The beds are big and super comfortable, with good pillows! The breakfast is an excellent start to the day. I also really enjoyed the bar downstairs which served great food at reasonable prices. I didn't get the chance to go to the restaurant.... More

We spent four nights here and loved the atmosphere, location, nearby shops, welcoming staff and restaurant. Hotel Elefant has much to offer within a comfortable walking distance to the sights of Saltzburg.

Quaint...Perfect location in Old Town...Helpful staff. Absolutely loved our stay there. The rooms were clean. The beds were extremely comfortable. I was glad we had air-conditioning. Would not hesitate to stay there again or recommend it to others. This was one of our favorite hotels on our recent trip. The only negative was the reliability of the internet connection. However,...

This was one of our favorite hotels on a recent trip. The room was well-laid out with a separate sitting area. I also liked that the toilet was separate from the shower and bathtub. I also loved the enclosed shower, which is not standard in Europe.
