I not an expert but I think that in spanish there is not a exact phrase that means "elephant in the room", not at a general level of the language.

But, on a regional level, in centain countries there are! In Colombia for example there are several very colloquial phrases that mean that. But I don't know if those work for you, they are very very particular and only locals use them...
