Hotel Scherer was a great way to start our European vacation. Our well-appointed room was quiet, very clean and had a picturesque view. The beds were extremely comfortable with "good night" chocolates placed on the pillows. The staff was very accommodating starting with Michelle who gave us a warm welcome, shared interesting information about Salzburg and recommended great locals' favorite... More

First of all the good news, clean friendly hotel, modern rooms good breakfast etc. ...but they are grossly overcharging for wifi for one device. In 2014 wifi should be like water from the tap...free. If that is a problem put the price of the room up, but do not 'Ryanair' me. I saw some very frustrated young people on a... More

We stayed here for 1 night. The hotel is walking distance from the train station and the old city centre. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was clean with aircon and good pillows! We used Helmut as a tour guide to go to Hallstatt and we can recommend him.

Good Hotel with nice location as walking distance from train station. Service was average as we had specified all three double rooms but got only one considering its a big hotel with many rooms. The rooms are comfortable, very clean with good air conditioning to beat the summer heat. Would recommend it to everybody.

It has a very cosy and warm atmosphere. It is not far from the old center (approximatelly 10-15 minutes walk by the river). Also breakfast is very nice not the biggest varietty but not poor as well. Actually it has almost everything. Also the people there are very polite and willing to help if you need something.
