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.

Stayed here for one night in the 'loft' apartment in May 2014. What a fantastic room central to everything. Couldnt fault hte eservice, the experience or the room in any way - everything was perfect. If you were having second thoughts about staying at all, you needn't worry - absolutely fantastic!

Found this hotel on TA. It looked so interesting, I had to try it. Our cab driver could not find it and I think he thought we (21 yr old daughter and myself) were crazy when we pulled up to the tiny entrance. I think it is a self service check-in. It is decorated in such a unique style. Our... More

Arte Vida is in a great location, a short walk from everywhere. The rooms are really comfortable and individually quirky. The host is friendly and helpful, and though we didn't use the kitchen facilities they looked pretty good. I'd stay here again, hopefully for longer next time, and I definitely recommend Arte Vida to anyone looking for somewhere a bit... More

Arte Vida is a wonderful choice in Salzburg. It is beautifully situated very close to a home where Mozart lived and a short walk across the bridge to the Old Town. There are excellent restaurants close by and also supermarkets should you wish to eat in. The guesthouse is very attractive – decorated in an Asian theme –charming and different.... More

Loved this place. Who would have thought a spiritual, sensual, Moroccan retreat in the center of Salzburg! We took full advantage of the great kitchen bar and cooked two of our own dinners. Loved the bar, the garden, the room - spectacular! Staff - most friendly and helpful ever.

The B&B is clean, perfectly located and reasonably priced. The owner is both friendly and helpful. He has wonderful ideas of things to do in order to enjoy the city. You can walk from the train station or take the bus. No need to take a taxi.
