Hotel was a short walk to the old town which made it a great base for exploring. Good sized, clean room with friendly staff on hand to offer advice. Good choice for breakfast, much better than I was expecting. The only drawback to this hotel was the lack of air conditioning, with temperatures exceeding 38 degrees it was very difficult... More

This hotel was a bit overpriced, basic and rather below average. However, its location was excellent - not far from the old town and the train station. Overall room was clean, except when we checked-in the bin in the room wasn't clean. Lack of AC was a problem in the middle of August - sleeping wasn't really possible during the... More

Very nice place at a convenient location. The room is not very big, but for a couple of nights it's OK. Clean, well maintained. They have free WiFi. Breakfast should be mentioned as it is included in the price and it's very good. A delicius buffet, wide selection.

I left booking a hotel in Salzburg till the last minute (big mistake with Whitsun festival on) but was so lucky to find Hotel Ganslhof. A great price, comfortable room and recently renovated. Better towels would have been on my wish list but breakfast, wifi and cleanliness impeccable. Easy walk to town but try Urban Keller in the other direction... More

We've been here with our son, 4 years old, and grandparents. Usually we don't take below 4 stars the hotel but when we are in Austria and Germany we prefer the family owed hotels. This is one of the best of this kind. The owners are present all days and work together their employees. They do a very good job.... More

We did an overnight (1 night) trip to Salzburg from Ansbach and found this gem of a hotel. It was a 15-minute walk to the Altstadt, and it's right around the corner from a direct route via city bus. The hotel staff was very pleasant and helpful, the location was nice- just far enough away from the middle of things... More

Great hotel, in an ideal location for exploring the beautiful city of Salzburg. Only 15 mins walk into the old town, but has a bus stop opposite that will take you straight there, though it is seriously just a 15 min stroll. Excellent breakfast, with lots of choice and attentive staff. Free parking available in the grounds. Clean comfortable rooms... More

We loved being able to walk to old town and the Chriskindle marts. It was an easy walk even in winter. Also it's proximity to the bus line is wonderful. We took the bus (No. 2) from the train station to the hotel and also took a bus to see other sights. The beds were wonderfully comfortable but the pillows... More

Young couple. Stayed here 4 nights in September, using Salzburg as a base for driving to nearby towns (as well as visiting Salzburg). 2 hrs drive to Innsbruck/Seefeld, less than an hour to the nice lake towns like St Wolfgang, Bad Ischl & Hallstatt (the later is a must see). There is a bus to old-town but seriously, its not... More

The Ganslhof Hotel offers very large clean rooms for a reasonable price. Reasonable for Salzburg that is. Free parking next to the hotel. The bus (#4) to the old town is just 50m from the hotel. The breakfast was very good itch fresh scrambled eggs, variety of cereals, cold meats, cheeses, etc. Staff were helpful and courteous. We really appreciated... More
