A family operated hotel, there are two quiet houses for guests, the room is large & clean. In the morning, the owner will put the orange juice (also newspaper) on the dinning table waiting for their guests. Before we left China, we sent a mail to enquiry if there is hot water pot in the room, we found the pot... More

The owner reminded us of Norman Bates, odd guy and very not welcoming. There were cockroaches in the room! when requesting extra pillow he declined and there was also no internet in the room. Adding to that the location which is far from city center - the hotel isn't recommended at all!'n

The rooms are big and clean. That includes big bathrooms. They didn't have any rooms with two beds, so ended up with a single queen bed. Free wi-fi was available only near the lobby, but I didn't try it out. Free parking for the car. No elevator, so be prepared to haul your luggage up some stairs. Breakfast was available... More

We stayed in this pension as a stopover for 2 nights on our way south. We couldn't have been happier with our choice. It's a truly Austrian family-run pension. Because of it's location on the outskirts of Salzburg, it feels like you're staying on the countryside. There's a nice restaurant on walking distance, with a good but basic Austrian cuisine....

Room was really big, nice balcony. Staff was really friendly and helpful with some directions. It is about a ten minute walk to bus stop and from there 15-20 from the train station and the old part of town was only downside for us If doing your own driving would be great location but if planning on public transportation maybe...

Everything about this BnB / Pension is great. Homely feel, cozy, well furnished, spacious rooms with a balcony. Great quiet surroundings. Couple of great restaurants within walking distance... Everything is fine apart from the breakfast which wasnt bad at all ... just a bit limited. The owner actually makes his own marmalade etc so it added to the homely feel... More

This is one of the best hotels we have stayed so far. It is a bit outside the city, but is well-connected by public transport. Situated in a quiet location with great views. Our room was spacious with a balcony attached. Very classy decor with nice comfortable bed and lot of closet space. Huge bathroom, spic and span. Overall the... More

We arrived unexpected and not knowing what to encounter. The staff was very nice and was able to communicate fairly well in English. We were very pleased and would recommend this place to our family and friends. It was a pleasant walk to the bus stop (10 minutes) and a nice bakery is located about half way to the bus... More

What a fantastic hotel experience. The pension was beautiful, our room was clean, quiet and large, and the host family - Andrea especially - could not have been more welcoming. We arrived on a rainy evening after driving all day through the Alps in a hail storm. As soon as we walked in Andrea greeted us and immediately made us... More
