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!

We stayed in the Weimar Elefant about three years ago and loved it so booked this one in Salzburg, Austria.
We had a suite for five nights, very, very comfortable and clean. Good breakfast, plenty of choice and the staff are always cheerful!
The only nit pick is the tiny lift which on occasion behaved like Arkwrights till! Shot off with just me and the luggage leaving hubby alone in the lobby - it took another ten minutes!
The restaurant food is good plain tasty typical Austrian/German fare and immediately next door, down the stairs is the Dinner Bar where Max, the manager runs a beautiful bar - great service!
Altogether delightful stay!

We really enjoyed our 6 days at this very central hotel in Salzburg. The hotels front desk staff were superb and very friendly and helpful. The room that we stayed in was very spacious and the bed was extremely comfortable. This hotel has an adjoining restaurant which served fantastic meals at reasonable prices. A great place in Salzburg and central in the historic city.

The staff was mostly aloof. Driving to the hotel was quite an adventure not knowing that to get to the hotel one needs "codes" to lower the pylons that prevent just anyone from gaining access to the road the hotel was on. While the internet was free...you get what you pay for...it was poor and inconsistent. The front desk employee when we checked out incorrectly informed us of how to pay for our parked car and it ended up costing us an additional 12 euros. When we informed the front desk person who relieved the previous employee, he was more or less " oh well". While the rooms were very clean I was taken aback by the small blankets and while there were additional pillows in the room, there were not additional blankets. The location of the hotel is excellent for seeing the old town. The downstairs bar was excellently staffed and made great drinks and the food in the bar was basic but very we'll prepared and unlike the staff at the front desk of the hotel the bar personal we're charming and friendly. Not a hotel that I would recommend a friend to stay at...what a shame.

Room Tip: If arriving by car get specific directions from the hotel before you arrive and be sure to get them to handle the garage parking discount appropriately.

The Hotel Elefant in Salzburg is a great choice if you want to stay central in old town. The staff was welcoming, the rooms and bathrooms are small but well appointed and clean. The wifi worked very well and was free in the rooms. This hotel is a very charming old boutique hotel and I would definitely choose to stay here over larger "american style" hotels which are in town but not in old town. The parking is a bit tricky to find and I recommend putting the address in your gps ahead of time, you park in the mountain public parking which is a 10 min walk, but the hotel does validates the parking at a reduced rate.
