The owners are only at the residence up till mid-day and later you have to obtain entry with code numbers which will be sent to you by e-mail. If you don'y check your e-mails you won't get in easily. I arrived at about 11.15 in the morning and the owners were very friendly and helpful and gave much good advice... More

First of, we loved this hotel! It was truly amazing and our favorite of the trip! The location is ideal for exploring Salzburg, especially the Old Town. It's very close to shopping, cafes, restaurants, etc - you can't ask for a better location and all that it offers! The hosts were very accommodating, helping with directions, tips, recommendations, printing train... More

I have been staying at the arte vida guesthouse in various occasions and its always a pleasure to come back, relax and enjoy the nice atmosphere , decoration and also the very central location. You just step out of the building and you are right in the city center with all the main touristic and cultural sights just around the... More

Reading some of the negative reviews here I think it is because this place is called a "B and B/Inn" when in fact it should be called "Specialty Lodging." It is a pretty unique place combining interesting self catering apartments with individual rooms and most of the amenities are on a self serve basis.There is no breakfast included and the... More

Arte Vida is an easy 20 minute walk from Salzburg Hbf and conveniently located, so you can walk to most of the central sights and restaurants. 3-minute walk from the Makartplazt bus stop. Loved the decor and ambience. Good security. Has a full kitchen if you need it. You'll also find a good list of cafes/restaurants in the room. Reinhold... More

Unfortunately we arrived without the pin code, tried the emergency phone number given but this went to a fax machine, waited outside in the rain for 1 hr until another resident arrived, no apology given by host for not having the emergency phone connected. We booked a "garden room" but only had a view of a brick wall, when we... More

My husband and I spent 4 nights in this really unique place. When I was looking for a hotel already in April for this trip I found Arte vida and knew instantly that it would be THE place for us. And I was right: a very comfortable place, a large room with a four poster bed and the toilet-bathroom with... More

Prepare yourself to a different and unique environment, not like any hotel. Great location, very trustworthy staff, and in the middle of everything(Salzburg is very very small). The rooms are designed differently with different themes. There is a kitchen and a place to eat with good music and kind of Asian atmosphere. If you are a budget traveller and want... More

The property is situated immediately in the historic city center. Our family of 4 stayed in the loft apartment which is well outfitted and well maintained. Reinhold is a helpful and accommodating host. The self serve (honor system pay) coffee and snack area is well stocked and convenient.
