We stayed here for a night with our two kids. The room was clean but outdated. The hotel has a strange deco... The receptionist was nice... The other personel no... Maybe coz they dont speak english, they prefer to ignore us. Bathroom needs to be renovated ASAP (and the whole Hotel too!) Breakfast was ok. There were so many dishes... More

It is deffinetly not a 4 star Hotel. At this price you can find something better with breakfast included. Breakfast is ok for 25 € per Room but the coffe is terrible.They have free parking though and some of them are friendly.

We stayed at this hotel for two nights. The negative: Everything is outdated and worn out. The LCD TV didnt work. The WIFI signal on our PC was 3/4 out 5, but the broadband speed was embarrassingly slow. It brought me back on memorylane, some 17 years ago, when we had 56k modem/ISDN. Unfortunately one in the family got sick... More

The Arena is a real hotel. It is not downtown, but it's not difficult to get to the tourist spots. The hotel is perhaps not luxury, but it's more than adequate. It is good value for money. If we ever return to Salzburg, we'll probably stay there again.

We ended up at this hotel because everything was booked due to the Mozart festival. We booked a business double for one night because it said it included laundry wash/dry and robes and slippers, two items not included in the basic rooms. Also, they advertize wifi throughout. First, the hotel is totally outdated. They only had one key (yes, they... More

Stayed as part of a tour and overall a very disappointing experience at this hotel. The room was completely outdated (we were given a key and not even a swipe card), beds were hard, room had no air conditioning, and the bathroom was extremely outdated and needs immediate attention. We had dinner in the hotel restaurant and the food we... More

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 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
