Traditional, comfortable and quintessentially Salzburg. Reception and service was formal but very pleasant. The hotel itself is in several buildings, very close to each other. The space is very tight but charming. We reserved a junior suite which was well-appointed, in simple, traditional Tyrolian fashion. Perfectly located, could not be better. Getreidegasse is a very busy, very well visited lane... More

The hotel isn't easy to go to by car these days - it's in the pedestrian area and the only way to reach the hotel is through the tunnel. You need to call the receptionist - your GPS will not work. Once you're there though, everything is an easy walk - the Mozart museum, the cathedral (Dom), etc. It is... More

Over 43 years I've been staying here, returning at every opportunity. Over these many years the hotel has transferred from a private family owned jewel to the CIGA chain and lastly to the Starwood luxury chain. For one rare time in business-for-profit, none of the corporate owners have changed the original spirit of this hotel. Congratulations!!! It is the same... More

First of all, Austria never disappoints for hospitality and Salzburg is no exception. I’ve been many times in Salzburg but this was the first time I stayed at the Goldener Hirsche. As many have already reported, this historical hotel - claiming to be one of the oldest hotels in the world - would take you back on a time travel.... More

My daughter and i arrived to find, despite being a Starwood Hotel, this absolutely authentic and special hotel in Salzburg. The hotel is very old and loaded with history.

Hotel Goldener Hirsch is really situated perfectly to everything in Salzburg. The entrance is discreet and once inside you are warmly welcomed by an extremely kind and professional staff. Our room was over the front of the hotel above Sporer. The crowds left early so this never interfered with sleep. This offered us the absolute wonder of overlooking the front... More
