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

We recently stayed there for 3 nights. We came from Vienna by train and bus no 1 from Salzburg bahnhof takes you to the hotel and takes about 10 minutes. The frequency of the buses is good and you need to get down at Aribonenstrabe just near the hotel. Hotel room was spacious and comfortable. Cleanliness was maintained. Breakfast was... More

This is a great hotel, very clean spacious room with friendly and helpful staff. The hotel is situated out of the city center so I'd recommend it to travelers traveling by car. There is parking on the premises. Also if one is in Salzburg on the weekend parking anywhere on the public roads in the city is free of charge... More

Horrible! The room was totally run down, the furniture is from the 1980s, chairs were partly broken, carpets were worn down, furniture partly lost coating; the room was dark in color and lighting, a cheap no-name 24" LCD was the TV, I had only two power outlets in the entire room - this is supposed to be the BUSINESS ROOM!!!...

We stayed in the above hotel as part of a group in August for three nights and with temperatures in the high 20's we discovered, to our disbelief, that in this so called '4 star' hotel there is NO AIRCONDITIONING in the bedrooms. This meant that windows remained open at night which resulted in both my husband and myself being... More

Stayed as part of a tour group for three nights. Awful doesn't cover how bad it is. the rooms are circa 70s décor and the beds are like bricks. the only saving grace was its in a quiet location next to a stadium so noise levels are low and it is handy to get into town as bus stop is... More

The hotel is not close to shopping, but right next to the arena and the trade fair center. We were lucky enough to stay there on the fair's last day of operation. My granddaughter had a great time enjoying the rides along with her friends. The hotel does not appear to be a 4-star hotel; however, the stairs that curve... More

The hotel has an extremely convenient position for the Messe Zentrum. If you are travelling for the exhibition, the hotel is recommended for short stays only. The check in and out speed is satisfactory. The staff is friendly. The free wi fi internet is also increasing the satisfaction. The bar and restaurant is enough. There are not so many options...
