The stein hotel was the WORST hotel I've ever stayed at. We stayed for three nights and every single one of those nights was sleepless due to the smell of smoke in and around our room, yes there was people smoking in the hotel. Disgustingly dirty!! Poor service! The only good thing about it was the views from the rooftop...... More

Oh and the roof top terrace, stunning views, even though the service is poor, food overpriced and did not look gd value to me. - did not try so cannot comment further. Our room was on the rear of the hotel: fine but why furnish with such dark decore!!!?? No... More

Well its a real shame. This place has potential. There are some things you cant change in life. Location, size and views and all these are superb and come with bells on. The rest you can manage - the terrace bar that serves breakfast, drinks, lunch and evening snacks has no management presence and lacks training and leadership. Wasted opportunity... More

Pros: Excellent Location, big room (triple), big bed, rooftop restaurant, view, price. Cons: Average service at rooftop restaurant, no fan in bathroom, decor & furniture need updating. Could be stunning with an overhaul & training staff in the art of service.

Stayed for 3 nights at Hotel Stein in beautiful Salzburg. The hotel is bang smack in the centre , on the river and directly opposite the old town. An old fashioned looking hotel, I booked on a special rate and didn't expect tòo much .My room was exceptionally small though it had everything I needed and was clean. The best... More

you guys, I wanted to like this place, I really did. but unfortunately a 52% rating on here doesn't lie. this hotel seriously has potential- it's in a great location, it has a beautiful rooftop restaurant/bar and I can even get on board with the dark lighting in the hallways and creaky floors (this place is old and it adds...

We had dinner one evening in the hotel and this was... More

What a lovely old hotel steeped in history. We stayed here as part of Beker's Motorcycle Tour group and absolutely loved it. The hotel was very clean and well set out. Loved the old passage ways. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room overlooked the river and up towards the castle. Cobbled streets and ornate 17th century buildings... More

Hotel is located right opposite the river from the Old Town of Salzburg. It is easy to get to from the main train station and also within walking distance to most attractions in Salzburg. The room we got was in a corner and had two rooms with a large king-sized bed in one room and a single rollaway bed in... More

Having read several poor reviews a couple of months after we booked this hotel our expectations were low. We were pleasantly surprised. Yes, the corridors are dark - but it is an old hotel. Our room was spacious and had a fabulous view of the river and the old town (we were on the 5th floor). The terrace was on... More
