We had the pleasure of staying at this beautiful hotel for one night. The rooms were nice and clean, the bed was comfortable and the surrounding area with the lake was beautiful. Waking up and having breakfast in a palace was one of the highlights for sure. If you stay at this hotel we suggest having a car as it... More

Dear Jessica Thank you very much for your kind review, I am pleased to read you had such a lovely stay. Indeed, we are about 20 minutes walking from the Old Town and with the rain we had during your stay walking can be a little unpleasant (and our complimentary bicycles won't help much either in that case). I look... More

We picked this hotel for our one day/night stay before heading to Vienna. Charming and quaint setting. Friendly staff. Nicely designed rooms that were comfortable. Small basket of fruit in room when we arrived was a nice touch. Picturesque grounds that we sadly couldn't enjoy due to the pouring rain. For this to be considered a nice hotel, the amenities...

Dear Abbey Thank you very much for your review. I am sorry to hear that you found your stay to be "just ok" but appreciate your comments on our friendly staff and comfortable, nicely designed rooms (which have been renovated earlier this year). Indeed, we do not have a restaurant on site (the historic, 300-year old infrastructure of the Schloss... More

We stayed here for three nights and loved it. The location is fantastic, out of the hustle & bustle of Salzburg but near enough to walk if you're fit or a short taxi ride if you're dressed for dinner. The staff were warm and helpful, and the small bar/lounge was a nice spot for afternoon tea or an evening drink.... More

We traveled in Germany and Austria and this was my daughter's favorite hotel. The reason we booked here is because we both loved the Sound of Music. We ended up being pleasantly surprised by the wonderful accommodations. The room was perfect - large by even U.S. standards -- with a sitting area and large walk-in closet. Make sure you stay...

Booked a room here for a special occasion. The suites in the schloss are the only rooms worth staying in, though a little expensive for what you get. Our suite had two rooms, bedroom plus large drawing room and a bathroom, the poorest part of the suite. Best of all was the view overlooking the lake and the mountains. Breakfast... More

Our family of five stayed at the Schloss Leopoldskron for four nights. We were in two rooms in the Meierhof building - next to each other, but not connecting. The building is nice and the staff were great. The view of the lake from the rooms was nice, but mostly blocked by trees. There were virtually no toiletries in the... More

The most impressive part of this hotel is the main building (which you see on most of the photos), the scenic view to the lake, and the surrounding gardens. However, you will most likely stay in the nearby (service) building (which you don't see on most of the photos), as there are only 12 rooms in the main one, and... More
