My wife and I and 2 children (ages 5, 3) stayed for 2 nights in June. The hotel location is perfect, right in the heart of Salzburg on a quiet side street. You are just steps from many of the major sites, including the fortress. The staff was incredibly nice and accommodating. The rooms were quite large and very quiet. The couch pulled out into a sofa bed which was perfect for the kids. The only downside is that the bathroom and are tiny. Also, the Wi-Fi didn't work well in the room but was fine at the hallway table just outside our room
The hotel itself is quite interesting. In addition to the Elephant theme, walking the stairs is almost like walking through a museum. The stairwells and hallways our covered with eclectic artwork and antiques in an array of medias (drawings, painting, photos, furniture, stained glass, silverware). The hotel breakfast, included in room rate, is very good. We also ate at the restaurant within the hotel (though not under same ownership) our first night. The food was excellent, including the famous nockerl.
For a short stay in Salzburg, I'd stay again!More
