I stayed for three nights at this lovely hotel. It is right in the heart of the Old Town and yet extremely quiet - no street noise once inside. From the reception staff to the breakfast room manager, every interaction with the Hotel Elefant team has been friendly and attentive. My room was a good size, given normal European standards plus the building is an historic one. Well fitted out (although I'd have loved a kettle to make tea in my room), clean, bright, and a view up to the fortress.
I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Salzburg. You will be around the corner from every major sight, including the Mozart birthplace, close to the river, stepping distance to shops, churches etc, and be able to see the great beauty of the city up close.
A great choice in Salzburg.
