    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

    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.

  • Group of friends

    Iris at the front desk was exceptionally helpful as were the other staff. The location is awesome - in Salzburg's famous shopping street and all major attractions are a few minutes away. The restaurant has great food - whatever little we tried.

    I wish there a kettle for making tea/ coffee in the room

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    It was a lovely surprise, expected less but got so much more. The staff were delightful and helpful. Location fabulous and the hotel restaurant was very nice. There was plenty of room in our room. The view from our room was our of a postcard. Very happy.

    Not that it was a problem but perhaps tea making facility for a late night cuppa would be an added bonus.

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    Great location.

    The only problem we encountered was not knowing that the hotel was located in an area that was protected by bollards and that a code needed to be provided before driving into the Old Town area and to the hotel to drop off luggage.

    The bed

    No access with car, you need to walk from the near by public parking (you get discount from the hotel) with your luggage.
