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.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Elefant and everyone there was very friendly and courteous. Even though they provide directions, it's rather difficult to find especially as there was some on the old construction while we visited. Directions remained an issue during our stay including returning to the parking garage... Directions or a name should be provided as how you... More

My wife and I visited for 2 nights in order to visit the Christmas markets of Salzburg. The location was excellent and made it easy to walk to Old Town, Salzburg Fortress (Festung Hohensalzburg), Salzburg Cathedral (Dom), Hellbrunn Castle (Schloss Hellbrun), and the various Mozart museums. Clean rooms, excellent breakfast (included), and very kinds staff.

Our room was very nice and super clean. The bed was comfortable. Breakfast was nice and well stocked and restaurant staff were very friendly. I was surprised that the front Desk staff were not very helpful and definitely not friendly. Maybe they don't like Canadians.

There are no negatives for staying here. Everything is good here: friendly, helpful desk staff; delicious buffet breakfast with many choices; absolutely perfect location for exploring the city; very comfortable beds with nice linens. We booked an executive room which had a separate small sitting room, a separate bathroom with toilet and sink; and a bathroom with a separate shower... More

We have just returned home from spending 4 nights at Hotel Elefant. We found the location of the hotel to be excellent, and it was easy to catch the bus from and to the airport rather than paying far more for taxis. Our room was spotless, the bed was comfy and the shower was nice and hot after spending a... More

We booked this 4 star rated hotel (superior double room 308) having read consistently good TripAdvisor reports. Consequently, we were disappointed that it did not meet our expectations. However, it is important to put everything in context. The location is excellent for exploring both the old and new Salzburg, our room was small but clean with a comfortable bed, a... More
