Very bad. No A.C smelly rooms noisy bar at night horrible. Never come to this hotel the only air I get is from this window, which is broken. Although the staff were friendly but a bit idiotic sometimes. Far away from center 15 min by bus. Really low hotel consedring it to be a 4 star hotel. Also everything is... More

Hotel far from the centre but on a direct trolleybus route to centre and railway station- tickets available from reception. Hotel bathrooms beginning to get slightly dated, but not a problem I prefer an easy to operate shower rather than the hideously complicated ones you sometimes get in renovated bathrooms. Staff very pleasant and helpful. No minibar, but free coffee/tea/chilled... More

As I arrived late at night, this hotel was perfect for a meal, bed, shower and breakfast. The staff are friendly and the restaurant is open until 10pm which is handy. The rooms are nothing flash but are reasonably comfortable except for the absence of air conditioning. This meant on a day of over 30 degrees the room was very... More

I felt impressive and greatful with this hotel every times sitting at Lobby room also at the restaurant. Staffs are friendly, smile and also helpful. Just only small parking in front of hotel, we drove around there 2-3 times for parking. There were various food in the morning for our breakfast. Besides, I liked the staff in the breakfast room...

Hotel location is easily access by public bus from Salzburg train station. From hotel, we can easily go to city center by public bus,too. Room is clean and staffs are also nice and friendly to Asians. I would come again.

The Arena City hotel...well this hotel has been a disappointment for the category which it represents. I believe that once it may have been a great hotel as the room in which I stayed for two days was big and so was the toilette, however it was clear to the eye that the room bored the passage of time and...

We attended an event at the exhibition centre, so the hotel was ideally located. The hotel itself is fairly old and made me think of the 70s, but it is comfortable enough and the breakfast was quite good. There is a very nice bar area. Although it is not central to the tourist area, there is a bus stop directly... More

Booked a double room here in the morning before arriving into Salzburg latter that afternoon and was very disappointed to be told that they only had a twin room left (2 single beds) as there were limited hotel options available to us we checked in, upon getting into the room out of curiosity checked their booking website to see if...

We booked a double room only to arrive and be told there were only single rooms left, no apologies were made and meanwhile they were still advertising online double rooms available. The hotel stunk of cigarette smoke and was extremely dated, the beds were very uncomfortable and check out was slow. It was a 40 minute walk to the old... More

Located next to a convention centre there is not much around to see or do. The breakfast is okay. Rooms are old and beds very soft. Ok if you get a good deal but if you are after convenience this place is not for you. Wifi is free and better reception in room than in lobby. 3rd floor has free... More
