4 star Hotel Salzburg

Sigmund Haffner Gasse 4 - Salzburg

Price starting from 99 .75

If you are planning to visit the beautiful country of Austria, consider Hotel Elefant for your vacation plans. Its location is prime, its amenities are fantastic and you are sure to have an unforgettable vacation in the historic city of Salzburg, birthplace of one of the most famous and renowned composers of all time, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Certainly though, there is much more to Salzburg than Mozart, so come and see for yourself.

A Good Night's Sleep and More Part of a world-renowned chain, Best Western Hotel Elefant offers you countless amenities to ensure that your stay is a comfortable and happy as possible. Take breakfast, for instance. Rather than having to fuss with finding a place to eat early in the morning, just head down to the hotel lobby for a complimentary continental breakfast. While you are eating, catch up on your news, web videos and emails thanks to the complimentary high-speed internet access, available both in your room and around the hotel. If you find yourself tired after a day of touring historic Salzburg, eat at the on-site restaurant and save yourself the trip elsewhere. Most importantly, Hotel Elefant is a smoke-free and pet-friendly establishment. History Right Before Your Eyes

Hotel Elefant is located in the historic Munchsberg-Altstadt Old Town neighborhood of Salzburg. This entire neighborhood is an attraction within itself thanks to its many historic buildings and museums. For a dose of Baroque, visit Franziskanerkirche, a gorgeous old-style cathedral. Of course, it is best to not forget one of Salzburg's most famous resident, Mozart. You can visit his birthplace and perhaps get a bit of inspiration from this brilliant musical genius.

Maid service and reception = excellent and very helpful and charming people. The Dining room however was a disgrace. The coffee was cold, the waiters were so slow and useless and the breakfast was boring, unimaginative (even the apples were brown inside. Trying to get toast for 2 = 1 piece of white bread arrived at least 20 minutes of ordering. Really very upsetting as the Hotel is charming and we fell in love with Salzburg.

Fabulous! Everything about this hotel was excellent. Location great especially if you don't mind the lovely sound of the church bells and chatter of people in the restaurants below. Reception staff very welcoming. Breakfast is superb. Would recommend to anyone.

Lovely Hotel right in the middle of Salzburg and close to main attractions. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Free internet was fast/good. Nice restaurant within the hotel. Wonderful breakfast spread. Good heating provided for winter. Nice elegant classic decor everywhere. Modern amenities like auto-on/off tap for the basin is a plus. Only mild dissatisfaction was with the dusty room flooring.
