Good: Location is very close to the old town..easy walking distance. Reception is helpful and breakfast is okay. Bad: Very noisy at night (try to get a room not on the street side) There is airconditioning but you have to pay an extra 10 euros a night. In summer it can be so hot that without the airconditioner you will... More

Was here for five nights while visiting Salzburg and as a base for a cycling tour. The hotel was clean and also very convenient to both the train station (< 10 minutes walk) and the old city (5 minutes). I did not notice any noise issues. The staff were very nice and helpful. I would stay here again. The only... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Goldenes Theater Hotel in August 2014. I'm quite surprised at some of the other reviews here. I suppose we got lucky. I liked that the rooms were named after famous plays. I felt that the hotel had a fair bit of character to it. We stayed in the 'Faust' apartment for 4 people for... More

We booked this hotel over the internet, as a last minute choice, as everything else was booked. Ratings seemed to be good, so we trusted that. When we arrived in our double room - charged for 140€ per night - we were deeply disappointed: Outdated cheap furniture, small spaced main room that could hardly fit our luggage. The shower floor...

Clean rooms, excellent breakfast friendly staff. Reasonably good location to most sites and walking distance from train station. My only warning is try to get a room facing AWAY from any street. VERY noisy at night. Extra each day to use the air-conditioning.

We had a five day stay in this hotel. We booked it after viewing their web site, which in places gave a misleading view of the establishment. The one positive for this hotel is that it is a relatively quick walk in to Salzburg but not really in close proximity to any sites, but not the nearest. Our rear facing... More

This was a nice hotel, the rooms are big and it is located a couple of blocks from the main Salzburg town and shopping, walking areas. They charge for a/c which is $10 EU per day, which for the time wasn't bad. Definitely worth it in the end. We loved walking to all the sites from there. Take the tour... More

We stayed one night at this hotel and were very pleased with our stay. Although it is not a 4* hotel it is absolutely wonderful for the prices that it was offering for the room. We felt that it was very good value. The beds were comfortable, the shower powerful and the breakfast was excellent. It is an easy walk... More

Stayed four days at this excellent hotel, two days on either end of a trip through Austria. Excellent rooms, and the staff were unusually hospitable. We stayed at some more expensive places with staff that felt as if they were working through a checklist on friendliness. Nice enough. But the staff at Goldenes Theater do it naturally. Easily and naturally... More

This hotel is fine as an economy hotel. Rooms were clean but spartan. Shower was awkward...water gets everywhere. AC worked okay, but not great. Given that the staff smoked on the patio below our room, we'd have liked an option to cool the room without keeping the windows open. Minibar fridge was okay, and the breakfast was fine. Staff in...
