Marvellous, cosy, clean place in a stunning city centre... we will be back in the near future. Especially liked the attention to detail and wonderful hosts. Salzburg is a beautiful city to visit, heartily recommend!

We were three couples visiting Salzburg and had an awesome time! The arte vida guesthouse is a perfect place in the middle of Salzburg. We arrived in the evening and used the code to get in which we got via email - worked super smooth & perfectly. The hotel is a family-run place in the old part of Salzburg with... More

I really enjoyed staying there. The atmosphere is very friendly, and the team cares about its guests. There is a shared kitchen for the rooms, so accommodation guaranteed that food was not so expensive as it normally is in Salzburg. The rooms are big and recently redecorated. When coming back to the hotel from a trip through the city it... More

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
