My husband and I spent two nights at Hotel Elefant. The staff was friendly and efficient, the room was clean and the breakfast was delicious. We requested a quiet room and, bless their hearts they did give us a quiet room. It was an interior room facing a two foot wide, building enclosed opening. Needless to say, it was dark and dundgeon-like. The room was very small and inefficiently and awkwardly designed. The room was hot and stuffy and the air conditioner just could not keep up...and it was the first of June. We used a fan to supplement the a/c after the first miserable night. While breakfast was very good, I would pass on dinner. We ate in the restaurant our first night and ended up leaving most of our dinner. If I were going back to Salzburg or giving a recommendation on a hotel, I would, sadly, not choose Hotel Elefant. I had great expectations for this hotel and was let down....maybe the good reviews are from people who reserved the most expensive rooms.
