This is not a 4 star hotel. It is a reasonable 3 star hotel but it is not priced like that. Breakfast was below average with all cold cuts having been prepared the day before, and the pastries were not fresh. Coffee is poor for European tastes, even the cappuccino was undrinkable. For a hotel that quotes and prices itself... More

The room was tiny! We couldnt move! Location is very calm but near to center! Breakfast is average! Internet was given with extra charge! Not a very fancy decoration! Personnel not always ready to help

It's not the Ritz, but we weren't expecting it to be the Ritz. Just your average small, outdated hotel. The 4 stars is definitely a stretch. I've stayed at much nicer Holiday Inn Express that are rated lower. Breakfast was ok but I think 12 Euros was too much. It was part of our package so we had no choice.... More

Went through booking.com to arrange rooms for our party. Upon arrival at the hotel we noticed a bad smell wafting all over the interior of the lobby. Think old rotten cabbage. After entering our rooms we left the hotel immediately. Cheap, worn, dingy: linens, furniture and carpeting. The whole place looked dirty. How has this hotel received a rating of... More

I have traveled in so many hotels across many countries of the world but first time I am lucky enough to see that wifi is chargeable in a 4* Hotel. Rooms are small. Staffs are friendly and the location is good.

I showed the front desk man our confirmation and it does not matter to him. He just said in a rude way he can not do anything to fix their... More

Within easy reach of the main station, also an easy strole to the old town. The hotel is comfortable, clean and offers everything you need for a short stay away from home. I would certainly use the hotel again on my next visit to Salzburg.

The hotel is near the train statin and bus station. The reception was impolite but the other staff were friendly. The room was tiny but clean. Breakfast are not included and it cost 12euro. The breakfast tasted bad, it was not worth to pay 12 euro for it. The staff knocked our door at 9am in the morning and asked... More

Great hotel within easy walking from the main train station. Big clean rooms, and the biggest and best breakfast I have ever experienced! Frau Maria and Frau Luisa in the dining room were just lovely and also Mendy at the front desk was incredibly helpful! We stayed 7 nights, but just make sure you have your prices in writing, as...

Not well kept, tiny rooms, clogged and not maintained restrooms, food is oily, wifi is not free, not qualified for a 4 star, should be 3 stars. I will definitely not going back to this hotel. Location is just fine.
