My Mother comes here since 20 years and always tells me how wonderful this hotel is. So this year I had the chance to come here and I have to say that my high expectations where by far exceeded. Especially our dinner in the restaurant of the hotel was more than fantastic.

Very polite people, it was very unusual to find a dog there but it was cute. The restaurant is very expensive but breakfast is awesome. I will never forget how delicious it was. It's an "old" house, built in 1553 and you can feel it. Fruits everywhere for free, quick service but slow wi-fi. I could even say no wi-fi.... More

I had read about Hotel Elephant in an article in German Life Magazine so I decided to check it out, it turned out to be more expensive than I was quoted because I decided to eat dinner in the hotel dining room two nights. I should have opted for half board. It has been in the same family for over... More

This is an historic lovely hotel of the South Tyrol. The atmosphere is old world Austria but you are legally in Italy! Rooms are very comfortable and the breakfast buffet is wonderful. Location is good and a short interesting stroll from the main town square.

The Elephant is an old classical hotel, dating back to the XVIII Century, located a few meters outside Brixen old city walls (nice relaxing walk). In front of the old building, inside a beautiful flowered garden, there is an annex (a former XIX-Century private villa) with other rooms, and there is a pool with solarium area. There is also a...

We stayed at Hotel Elephant for one night in February 2015, and wished we stayed longer. It was such a beautiful hotel. Just the right amount of old world charm and new world comfort. Friendly service. The restaurant was closed (perhaps due to the winter season) but we were pointed to an excellent restaurant in Bressanone (5 minute walk) called... More

Five stars isn't enough to describe how fantastic the food and how friendly and welcoming Hotel Elephant is. Quality food with excellent flavor combinations, superbly fresh ingredients, and a great atmosphere. Additionally, they are great at recommending wines. Really always a pleasure!

I did not know about this XVI century Hotel. I ended up by chance (as I was on a business trip) and discivered that, besides the ancient walls and rooms, the ancient stairs and furniture, you can enjoy a 17000 square meters garden, with a swimming pool. The Hotel is a few steps from downtown Bressanone and it is definitevely... More

This hotel is a winner with its old-fashioned charm. The sitting room, hallways and dining rooms incorporate antiques, museum quality paintings and magnificent panelling.. Good food is sourced from the adjacent walled garden where the swimming pool holds court. Our room 29 was spacious, with comfortable decor and balcony. Location is perfect for tripping to Innsbruck and general Dolomites area
