Not too expensive; 30min/3km walk away from the centre. Bus rides every ten minutes; plm 20min ride @ €5 v.v. Try buying tickets in advance, saves you €1,60. Day ticket @5,50. Free car park. Hotel as such is just a clean bed, with nice and friendly staff. Don't expect any special.

This was a disappointment after a wonderful day in Salzburg We were part of a tour party and appreciate this is an expensive city but this was the worst of our 7 hotels The bed was hard, the room was hot and the included meal was rubbish

This is worse than 3 star hotel, reception will answer question if you ask her, but no patient at all. Can borrow adaptor with €10 security bond, however you have to pay first. They refused to let me take to the room first to have a try, then come down to pay in 2 minutes. Room was big, but not... More

Not sure why this is classified as a 4 star hotel. There wasn't any kettle, minibar, slippers, in the room. When enquired why there wasn't a kettle, apparently there was a fire few years ago as a result of a customer mishandling the kettle. However that is not a valid reason in my opninion for them to exclude the kettle.... More

Stayed here for just one night. Did not have the opportunity to stay longer. I noticed that the public transport ( bus) stops at the hotel. The room is comfortable in size compared to the smaller rooms in other hotels. Buffet breakfast had good variety and was excellent. The hotel is dated . Do not expect nice clean looking carpets...

We were on a bicycling vacation through Austria. We arrived hours before check-in, but our room was ready...GREAT NEWS. The had an underground parking lot where we conveniently stored our bicycles. Once inside the hotel you will immediately notice the inside is nicer than the outside. A lovely spiral staircase dominates the interior. Once in our rooms, we found the... More

This hotel is ok. The rooms are ok and they are clean but a little dated. I wouldn't stay here again, only because there is NOTHING to do around this hotel. The Salzburg Arena sits next door. There is about a 15-20 commute into town by cab. This hotel is boring, to say the least.

Late check in was the reason for which we chose this hotel in Salzburg. We found a helpful staff but a tired hotel. The room is big enough but four stars is a bit over rated. We stayed here just one night. For transit it's ok.

We stayed in this hotel for three nights after arriving from Vienna by train. Once we got off the train we walked outside of the railway station to the buses which were outside and the bus we took delivered us virtually to the front door of the hotel after about a 10 minute bus ride. What a wonderful surprise to... More

We stayed in several hotels during our trip in Europe last August, and though I like Salzburg a lot, this hotel is the worst hotel we stayed in. The air-conditioner didn't work, and the wifi worked only occasionally. Breakfast was awful: maybe it is because we were an Asian group, we were isolated in a function room for breakfast and... More
