    The location was perfect for exploring Salzburg, both old city and the newer areas. Since others had commented on the difficulties of getting into the old city and past the bollards, we programmed our GPS with a location on the road outside the old city and the followed the instructions provided by the hotel. The staff were very helpful in ensuring we got to see the best of the city.

    I could not believe we paid over $300 for this room. It was dark, uncomfortable, and noisy.

    We stayed here for one night while visiting the Christmas markets. Two blocks to Markets and right in center of old town. We arrived a little early but our room was available. Very nice accommodations and the taxi from the train station was able to pull to front door. The restaurant was great too, serving the famous Nockerl.

    Perfect location to everything...both children walked the city with ease....traveled with 7 yr old and 3 yr old...hotel just 5 min. Walk to mozart's birth house and close to the river...room was beautiful...good breakfast...free internet..tried to book a triple, but only a double was available..didn't charge extra for 2 children..all 4 of us managed to sleep in the bed with ease...

    Cotton jersey sheets had hair from previous guests stuck to them...if room is facing the front of the hotel you will hear all the night time noise which echos straight into your room...make sure your window is closed tightly

    Hotel staff was excellent! They supplied great recommendations for shopping/eating in the surrounding area.

    The only thing I didn't care for is the hotel restaurant, we ate there the first night and our waitress supplied us with bread and then we received the bill with a 7.50 Euro charge for bread, don't appreciate the hidden costs!

    Situated in the Alstadt , this small hotel was a delight. I had requested a quiet room which it was. It was also beautifully furnished with the most comfortable queen size bed and a separate toilet to the well equipped bathroom. We were greeted by hotel staff warmly and given ample assistance with our bags. The daily breakfast was plentiful and delicious and we ate on one night in the hotel restaurant and were very impressed with that meal. Chanterelles (tiny local mushrooms) were in season and the waiter was helpful in guiding our choices of dishes. We stayed only two nights but would have liked to stay longer. We would certainly return there and would thoroughly recommend it.

    The staff at reception were very helpful and pleasant, much more so than the average.

    The single room was a bit small, although well appointed

    Superb

    We moved to another hotel because this hotel did not have any vacancies, or we would have stayed another night. While staying at the new hotel, we returned to the Elefant to get brochures regarding excursions. While there, we were provided with invaluable suggestions by the nightime concierge (Veigl) that pretty much dictated what we would do for the rest of the vacation. It was the best advice that we received from anyone during the entire three week holiday.

    Everything was great except for the dinner (in the hotel restaurant) where we had to pay 9.00 Euros for three small pieces of bread. The food was good but it was a bit of a rip-off.
