This hotel was located in the city center with easy access to everything. The room was nice and well furnished and bed was firm. Breakfast was average, but well maintained. It was a bit stressful driving through the tourist pedestrian area to drop off our luggage. Would have also been nice if the hotel would have let us know the...

Stayed here for just one night when we were in Austria last week. It is a lovely hotel in the old part of Salzburg about 20 minutes walk from the train station. Room was large and very comfortable, breakfast was adequate (we are not big eaters) and the people on reception were very helpful. Would definitely recommend this hotel

We enjoyed our stay at this updated hotel. The staff was helpful and the room was comfortable. Breakfast was included and had a wide variety available. The best feature of this hotel is the location. We were in the middle of the pedestrian area and were able to walk everywhere.

We stayed in Prague before we came to Salzburg in September 2016 and I will say the service here was excellent comapred to Prague. We dealt with three different people at the front desk and each was very helpful and patient. They gave us advice and helped us find directions. We ended our nights in the bar downstairs where we...

Arrived via train from Vienna. We took a local bus from the station and this left us at the door way of the old city. I think it was number four. Ask the information desk. The buses are right outside station. We found the hotel quickly and were not able to check in early. We were hungry and ate at...

We drove in, and had a complicated procedure to enter the pedestrian zone. We were able to unload the car, then drive to the parking garage. The location in the pedestrian zone is pleasant. The restaurant in the hotel has good food, but the service was very slow.

My husband and I found this quaint little hotel through trip adviser and the reviews were bang on. Hotel Elfant is well located and right next door to Mozart's house. The staff were warm and friendly. We stayed for one night and had a great experience. The rooms were much bigger that we expected, although we did an upgraded room....

Located in the center of 'Old Salzburg' you have a short walk to most interesting sites. Clean, quiet, nice staff. However beware of the choice of a 'single' room. It is very small to open your suitcase and the bathroom, too small if you are over 5 foot tall. They said to choose a 'double' room, even if you travel...

It's been a year since the three nights we were there last December, but we will be staying at the Hotel Elefant again in a few weeks! This is one of my favorite hotels ever. The building is quite old (700+ years) but tastefully modernised, while still being true to the ambience of the original architecture. The breakfast room there...
