            location

            lift didnt work, parking directions were terrible, access to hotel by car difficult

          • Older travelers
            9.2

            The staff could not have been more helpful. They booked all our trips for us and made recommendations. The location was perfect - right in the center of the old town. The hotel was very clean and in good decorative order. The restaurant was very good although the menu was limited (this seems to be common in Salzburg).

            It could have been improved if there were a bar in the hotel. The buffet breakfast was adequate although I had expected much more from the reviews I had read. The only cooked items were scrambled egg and bacon.

            This is my second time to stay this hotel. Great location with friendly and very helpful staff.

          • Older travelers
            7.4

            The hotel is in the old city in a pedestrian area. Great location for seeing the important sights and for shopping and restaurants. It was quite difficult to reach the hotel the first time we got there. The right thing to do is to park the car at the Alstadt parking exiting thru the Toscaninhof exit and from there it's a five minute walk. The staff was very helpfull and we warmly recommend it.

          • Family with children
            8.2

            Great location,friendly customer service and decent and fairly sized room and bathroom. Would lobe to stay there again

            They do not seem to keep Salzburg cards , which every tourist would require ,though they took the trouble of finding out it is available in a nearby hotel!!However we found out that it is available in a small shop just next door!!!

          • Older travelers
            10.0

            We enjoyed this hotel very much. We arrived by rental car. The hotel had sent exact directions as to how to get to it, in the old town. The old town is basically traffic free except for taxis, and some business traffic after 11:00am. At that time 'bollards' rise out of the ground and prevent entry into the old town. We were sent an access code which we entered into the machine beside the bollard, and it lowered into the ground to let us pass. We had to go slowly amid the pedestrians and sometimes they get very 'upset' at the cars which they feel should not be in there. We pulled up in front of the hotel which also has a sidewalk cafe out in front as well. The luggage was unloaded by staff and taken to the rooms. I then had to take the car and park it in Aldstadt Parking B (11 euros per night). The hotel provided breakfast (hot and cold buffet)which was first class. Dinner could be purchased right in the hotel restaurant if you wanted to, or you could eat at many of the restaurants in the old city. The hotel is a 3 minute walk to the #25 bus for Hellbrunn (Ticket is E2.10 if bought on the bus or E1.60 if bought in a tabac...if you do that..you must cancel the ticket in the machine on board or risk a 65E fine). Unfortunately, the return stop is across the river up by the Mirabell Gardens, as there is a one way street system around the river. You can easily walk to all the sites in the old town as well as those in the newer part. The hotel is air conditioned, and it was working great too. It was just so convenient to walk from the hotel around the city.

          • Older travelers
            8.2

            The breakfasts were lovely - a wide selection of hot and cold food, plenty of it and attentive staff. Although the buffet was buffet style the tables were all set properly and staff bring coffee/tea to your table and clear up afterwards and re-set the table. These details make the difference.The room we had was comfortable and suited every need - a bit noisy between 5-8am with street cleaners, bin collection and deliveries but ideal for being in the city and on the doorstep of all the main attractions. Overall it was an ideal location and the attentive and pleasant staff made all the difference - recommended wholeheartedly.

            It's inevitable in a city centre location that there will be either traffic or other noise but the early mornings were very noisy with street cleaners, bin collection, deliveries and shop shutters opening - not to mention all the bells tolling for church etc. Not much that can be done about it though!

          • Older travelers
            10.0

            The location of the hotel was in the centre which was great and you could walk to all the sights. The staff could not have been better or more helpful and arranged sightseeing tours for us. The place was spotless and the food in the restaurant was great. The breakfast was also excellent.

          • Older travelers
            8.8

            The staff are real professionals who can make your stay enjoyable and comfortable. The location is ideal and the breakfast is super! It was worth staying there with the rates presented to us.

            The renovation supposedly undertaken recently was done well but it could be a little better to make the hotel to be on a luxury level.

          • Older travelers
            9.6

            Very well located - center of old Salzburg. Room was large and comfortable. Staff was terrific and restaurant was very good.

            8.8

            Locates in the absolute central. Nice design. The staff was 100 % nice and very helpful about everything. Comfortable bed. Very good for the price in Salzburg.

            The room was a little bit too warm. But you can use air condition, or open the window.

          • Single
            10.0

            Excellent customer service and wonderful hotel. I would highly recommend it for your stay in Salzburg. The breakfast buffet has much to choose from and the restaurant was suburb for dinner. The staff goes out of their way to make you feel at home.

          • Group of friends
            9.2

            the hospitality of the staff at the reception desk, their generosity and smile.

          • Family with children
            8.8

            Hotel is situated in the heart of old town of Salsburg close to all main sightseeings. It's tidy and comfortable with fairly good breakfasts.

            Beds are not comfortable. Double bed consists of 2 matrasses and they are pretty old or just very soft - the back felt tired after the night.
