We couldn't have booked a better hotel. It has the best location, right in the middle of the old town. Although our room did not have a view, it was quiet, clean and had everything we needed. Like many European hotels, the room was small, but it was super cosy. I particularly liked the wooden floor and leather chairs. Much better and fresher than the usual carpet and velvety furniture. The wifi was fast and excellent water pressure for the shower.
All the staff were friendly and helpful. Although I'm a fan of the variety of American breakfast, I was very satisfied with the continental buffet the hotel offered. There were eggs and bacon every day. Although the spread was always the same, the freshness of all the items really impressed me. The bread, salad and fruits.... Everything was freshly cut up...no canned stuff. Even the cold cut was tastier than those in other hotels.
I'm so glad that we chose Hotel Elefant. I hope to have the chance to visit Salzburg and stay at the hotel again.
