Only in Salzburg

You will find our Hotel Elefant in Salzburg in the middle of the pedestrian zone in the center of the old town. In one of the most traditional streets – the Sigmund-Haffner-Gasse – not far from Mozart’s birthplace, the Café Tomaselli and the prince-archbishop’s residence, we have been welcoming our guests for 5 generations. Just around the corner you walk into the Getreidegasse and you are in the core of the baroque old town between the festival hall and the cathedral.


In 2019, the Hotel Elefant is expanding its Sigmund-Haffner-Gasse 4 location to include the Hotel Elefant Family Business in Getreidegasse 1. For this purpose, a connection between the two buildings was established on the first floor.

For the Hotel Elefant Family Business in Getreidegasse 1, 26 new hotel rooms were created.
These impress with their maximum flexibility and are aimed at families and business travelers with high quality standards.

For the Hotel Elefant Family Business, limited breakfast places can be booked either by booking directly or at the reception desk on the day of arrival. If the places are already occupied, the reception team will be happy to help you.

The main entrance, reception and check-in are for both locations in Sigmund-Haffner-Gasse 4!

The Elefant is run as a non-smoking hotel.

Unfortunately, as an old town hotel in a historic building, we cannot offer secure bicycle parking spaces.

Wireless LAN is also available to our guests free of charge.

In order to guarantee the stylish ambience and the high-quality equipment, we unfortunately cannot allow pets.

In our hotel you will experience the hospitality that you can expect in Austria and Salzburg!
