Almost 100% greatfrom sunshyn24
Fabulous little hotel in great locationfrom RhondaMJ
Perfect in so many ways.from Heaney
The Elephant Hotel was excellent. Perfect location, wonderful friendly , helpful staff and beautiful food. Straight away we felt at home in the Elephant. The hotel is tastefully decorated and a nice touch was an umbrella in the room just in case!
Breakfasts were excellent with a wide variety of good food. When we return to Salzbug we will stay at The Elephant! Wundervoll!
A wonderful hotelfrom wildtraveler4
The breakfast is unbelievable: there are two rooms, with quiet classical music, and linens, crystal and fine table settings. A wonderful choice of foods, with quiet and attentive waitstaff. It is the best I have ever experienced in a reasonably priced hotel.
The staff is extremely helpful.
Fantastic hotel in great locationfrom Chris
The hotel itself is beautiful and the rooms are lovely. My single room was adequate in size with a comfortable bed. The bathroom was superb - power shower and brand new bathroom. The free breakfasts were lovely and if you have a laptop you get the first day of internet (ethernet cable in room) free and then it is approx 5-6 euro per day after that which is fairly reasonable. There is a computer on the first floor for those without laptops.
Only complaint would be that my room was made up despite the do not disturb sign being put up.
Strongly recommend both the Sound of Music tour (i did panorama tours and it was fine but it was a packed big bus) and dinner and Mozart concert at the fortress. The hotel booked both for me.
A taxi from the airport to the hotel is E12 so that is the easiest way to get here.
Great location and comfortfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Loved the Hotel Elefantfrom A TripAdvisor Member
We arrived by car which was a bit of a challenge since the hotel is technically in the pedestrian center of the city. You are allowed to drive to the hotel to unload your luggage. We actually parked the car in an open square just above the hotel as we werent sure we were going the right way on the street. I walked to the hotel lobby and the staff person at the desk came right out, hiked up the street, grabbed our bags and brought them back to the hotel. They took our keys and parked the car for us as well. They were great and we had great service from the hotel staff at all times.
Parking is off site in the public garages about a 5 or 10 minute walk from the hotel. They offer to fetch the car for you as well.
We had a room that would accomodate three people. It was more like a suite with a sitting area that had a comfortable pull out bed for our son. The room was very spacious, clean, and comfortable. Our room consisted of a walk in area with a closet, the sitting area that had another closet, the pull out couch, and TV. That led to the main bedroom which was of good size. Bed was very comfortable. We had another sort of dressing room and walk in closet off the bedroom and the bath was off of that as well. The bath had a modern shower and was spotless. No tub but we prefer showers only.
The hotel has a elevator and air conditioning but we did not need the ac. Its an old house with wide open halls and a marble staircase. The common areas are decorated with antiques and old pictures. The breakfast buffet was more than generous with the typical fresh fruits, rolls, meats, and even scrambled eggs and bacon.
The location is absolutely perfect as well. We ate dinner at the restaurant one night and it was quite good. Hotel guests are given a free cocktail as well. With the windows open, you can hear the noise from the street. However, with the windows closed, its very peaceful. The bells of certain churches do ring throughout the night but that would be true for any hotel you stay in in the Aldstadt.
I also would highly recommend staying in the Aldstadt area rather than across the river. It is simply not as charming on that side of the river, busier, traffic laden, etc.
Unless you are looking for a sterile, posh , 5 star luxury hotel, I can highly recommend this hotel and would stay there again. We loved it.

OK, but nothing specialfrom traveller1959
s Advice!from A.B.GBirmingham
To conclude, Salzburg was beautiful but dead at Christmas. Vienna, as always (our fourth Christmas), was wonderful.
Top Local Tips for Salzburg
Sound of Music Tour very overated with a tour guide that drives you crazy after the first five minutes! unless you are a hardened fan I feel that one of the other tours would have been far more enjoyable.
Mozart Dinner concert Well recommended at 45 euros at the Stiftskeller St. Peter restaurant. Great traditional surroundings with live chamber orchestra and opera singing. Book in advance on-line. Collect tickets earlier in the day when you arrive.
Panoroma Sound of Music trip is definatly recommendable from Panoroma tours. However their "Bavarian mountains - Berechtesgaden - Saltmines" was not upto our expectations.
