Some reviews say its too expensive, but seriously? You are in salzburg and right in the middle of the old town... It couldnt be cheap. The superior room was quite nice and spacious, staff was super friendly and breakfast buffet really adequate. But the best has to be the location.

I nice, reasonable priced hotel in the heart of Salzburg. Lots of shopping, restaurants, and tourist spots within walking distance.

Room Tip: The breakfast buffet is a bit unorganized and can be crowded. Try to go earlier if possible.

This hotel was a great finding. It has a great price, it's located right on the centre of Salzburg. They have free wi-fi.
From the station, you can take buses 3, 5 or 6 and get off at the first stop (Rathaus) after the river.
The breakfast was really good and the staff very nice.
The building looks like as if it was a house, and it's beautifully decorated.. it's very cozy.

Our family of six stayed here a few days ago and we were very pleased with our experience. We stayed in a triple, a double and a single. The rooms were lovely and comfortable. The staff was helpful. We were very happy with the breakfast. Try the apple strudel (with ice cream) in the restaurant, for a late night dessert. You just can't beat the location. We loved being able to run in and out of the hotel during the day while wandering around town.

Right in the heart of old Salzburg, this gem of a hotel exceeded our expectations. The women at the front desk could not have been nicer or more patient as they helped us plan our very brief stay. The room was tastefully appointed and bath quite modern. We thoroughly enjoyed the rather lavish breakfast. After a long day of walking, the restaurant associated with the hotel was a nice surprise with a very personable waiter, an interesting menu, and tall glasses of wine to end the evening. We enjoyed lunch there the next day too. Don't forget to order the Salzburger Nockerl, the traditional dessert.


I would highly recommend a stay at the The Elefant. Old world grace and charm with the modern touches we all need.
