It's like staying in a museum except rooms are large, clean and very modern. Conveniently located on a pedestrian area with lots of outdoor cafes, shopping and wine bars/stores. Staff especially Michael and his wife became friends attentive to all of our needs and tastes. Exceptional meals highlighting local foods and wines - best creme brûlée ever. Beautiful private grounds.... More

Stayed here 5 days for business. Enjoyed the excellent service, really professioanal. Hotel is getting old, but still you can notice the quality standards you would expect. Kind personnel, from reception to porter. Excellent cuisine, and double points for caring about gluten free food with great personal attention. They enjoy their job. You can feel it.

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

I have been visiting Brixen for some years now and love the city, the people and the region. So far I have not stayed in the elephant so I thought it about time this was rectified. Oh dear what a disappointment, thus hotel thinks, no believes it is something very special, it is not in any way shape or form.... 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
