Crown Plaza Salzburg: The Pitter This is an older property but it is a good value for the price. Its walking distance from the train station with luggage, it is easily manageable. Only about 5 minutes and we are not young. It’s also a short walk for all of the attractions: Mirabel Garden, Hohenstaufen Fortress and the old town. You... More

Stayed here for 3 nights at the end of September 2013. The hotel rooms were a bit old, like the hotel, but well furnished. Only drawback was a lack of cooling - we had to open our window to get comfortable. Location was very convenient - short walk to the train station and easy walk to the Salzburg town center.... More

The service was excellent. The rooms are very large. The Hotel is centrally located and is a walking distance away from the town centre. The Salzburg congress is across the road. The room needs a bit of renovation but overall its excellent.
