We absolutely recommend this magnificent place. The town of Bressanone offers a few very interesting museums. It also might be used to visit the nearby valleys. The hotel itself is a real bargain. Very friendly staff, a restaurant to dream off, the real meaning of hospitality!!! We loved this place..!

Brixen/Bressanone completed my tour of Sudtirol. It's a lovely historic town (like a miniature Salzburg-with which it has many parallels and historic connections). Brixen was the favourite holiday retreat of then- Cardinal Ratzinger, and this hotel was where he habitually stayed. It is extremely comfortable, situated in a wonderful old building (characterful old fixtures and fittings, and interesting paintings), with... More

The hotel has belonged to the same family for eight generations. The result is attention to every conceivable detail, down to fresh roses on every surface and in our room, together with a daily bowl of fresh fruit. The tennis courts are immaculately kept as are the changing rooms and honesty bar around the swimming pool in the park. The... More

The rooms are very elegant and clean, as well as the bathrooms. The town that surrounds is very unique with a variety of restaurants and... More

Hotel Elephant is a great hotel in the City of Brixen/Bressanone. It is nicely located and the staff is always friendly and helpful. The restaurant has a very fine selection of dishes, not too many choices, but the right ones.

If you want to be treated like a good friend rather then just a customer-then think of this nice, elegant and historic hotel. You might feel a bit like in the museum (but a very clean one :)) I don't remember a friendlier staff in any of the hotels visited worldwide (especially at the Reception). The owners are really hard... More

What a find was this delightful hotel in the Trento region of northern Italy. The rooms were lovely (smallish but not uncomfortably so) and the bathrooms immaculately clean and modern. The beds were comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful. These staff know how to look after their guests - other hotels we visited could do well to send... More
