Booked hotel last June after reading good reviews. Arrived on Friday afternoon to find it covered in scaffold with a note pinned to the entrance, hotel closed until June, to contact another hotel for more info. We were not pleased having walked with our luggage from the airport bus. We were not contacted.

Dear Guest, we are very sorry to hear that we could not reach you for an information on our closure. We do hope that your Salzburg stay was a good one in our sister Hotels and we hope we can welcome you again once the Hotel is reopened. Sincere regards and warm greetings!

We celebrated our Anniversary at this hotel this summer. The hotel is so quaint with a wonderful breakfast. Ulrike, the hostess, helped us with our touring information, giving us some local information of places to go and even helped arrange some of it. When Ulrike found out it was out 20th Wedding anniversary she went out of her way to... More

Christmas in Salzburg in this quaint and charming hotel. We loved our hostess for breakfast each morning and the gift from the elves on Christmas Eve. The beds were a little firm and our private bath had only a tub. We stayed on as tree side room and the street sweep would come by each morning - a lot tile... More

We just came back from a 3-day city trip to wonderful Salzburg. Hotel Zur Goldene Ente is perfectly located in Old Town Salzburg, a footstep away from the main Christmasmarket and the shopping area. Don't expect a smooth operation like the Sheraton or other main hotel brand. The hotel is located in an ages old building. Rooms, at least the... More

Remember this building is 600 years old! The rooms are small with outdated decor, things that could be improved on are the thread bear towels and inconsistent hot water flow. The mattress is only 6 inches thick which gave me a very sore back, this has never happened before this bad.The hotel manager is excellent, virtually does everything. If you... More

The Golden Ente was exactly the safe haven we needed for so many reasons. Everything about this hotel exuded warmth and welcoming. Ulrike and each member of her staff took such good care of us. When we arrived I had a terrible cold but we were well cared for and it really ease the pain. Such a lovely 700 year... More

Ulrike single-handedly provided our family with one of the best experiences (lodging or otherwise) of our 24-day sojourn throughout Europe. She was extraordinarily helpful throughout the booking process, including friendly accommodations of several schedule changes that we requested. She positively doted on us at breakfast both days and insisted on helping us pack lunches - gratis - for our bicycle... More

This hotel is a real charm. Wonderful Rooms in a600 year old building located on a perfect Salzburg street and all within walking distance of everything you could possibly want to see. Great staff! The ground floor restaurant is a separate entity but try to not miss it. The food is pure Austrian, reasonably priced and very good. Do miss... More

Booked die Goldene Ente after reading excellent reviews online. Arrived in Salzburg after a long traffic filled ride in the pouring rain. The hotel is in the old city and you cannot drive there, despite what your GPS says. This is not noted prominently anywhere and we actually had to pull over and call the hotel to find out how...
