I stayed here for a couple of nights as a solo traveler. Checking in was a breeze, the guy (forgot to ask his name but he looked like Billy Bob Thornton) was very helpful and the room was ready a couple of hours before it was supposed to. I had the Mumbai room, which had the bed up the ladder.... More

We arrived after reception hours, but because of Herbert's emailed directions we were able to easily get right into our room and settle in. The location is perfect, a market right nearby, old town is easy to walk to and the tour busses at Mirabellplatz are a quick walk as well. Out the front door is a delicious Italian restaurant...

With a combination of perfect location in the pedestrianised centre of Saltzburg; superb accommodation for our family group of four; and the professional, friendly and highly informed host (Herbert) giving his time and expertise freely to ensure our stay was just perfect. All I can say is a big thank you to all at Arte Vida for making our stay... More

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

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
