I am an Austrian American and visit my elderly Mother twice a year in Austria. On my last visit in Nov. 2013 I stayed 2 days at Haus Ballwein, because I liked the online site and it was also recommended by Rick Steve whose advise I often follow.The room was charming, the breakfast excellent and the Lady of the House...

We had a wonderful stay at Haus Ballwein and would recommend it to anyone. The house is located just outside of the Altstadt (old city) area and has incredible views of the surrounding meadows and mountains. The room was clean and spacious, with a great deck and hot shower. Our hosts were extremely friendly and a delicious breakfast was served... More

This is a very nice B&B to stay at. We liked it because it was away from the packed city with ample parking for our car. The bus stops right in front of the house and it gets you to all points in city in about 10-15 minutes with 24 hour pass. Breakfast was great and varied. Host helped with... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at this quaint B&B in Sept/Oct 2013. We had stayed in hotels/hostels throughout our travels that were right in the city center and this was a sweet escape from the noise/business that we had encountered. We had a very pleasant stay! The family that owned the B&B were extremely welcoming; it felt like home as... More

My daughter and I as well as college student we were traveling with, stayed here in July 2013. We traveled from Vienna so we were trying to get there by 5 PM or 6 PM and had to take a taxi (about $12) so we could check in. It is a bit outside of the buzz of Old Salzburg so... More

After reading some of the most recent posts and negative reviews, I have to wonder what do people expect? Yes this an adorable B&B and it is outside the Altstadt of Salzburg. If you want to be close to all the tourists and the touristy stuff, then don't stay out here directly on a bus line. Having a car and... More

Using Rick Steves we booked 2 rooms for 2 nights at Haus Ballwein. Although it may appear to be "out" from the Altstadt of Salzburg, the bus stop at the end of the driveway makes the entire area accessible in a few minutes time. The rooms were spacious and bright, and very clean. The breakfast was diverse and generous. But,... More

We booked a room at Haus Ballwein for 2 nights recently, based on such good reviews on Trip Advisor. I honestly wouldn't stay here again. To begin with, our first encounter with Frauline Ballwein was rushed. She seemed exasperated with me when I asked questions about the bus and where to find a laundromat. I felt like she couldn't wait... More

We originally booked at another location however they were giving up the business and referred us to Haus Ballwein. We were not disappointed in our two night stay and Frau Ballwein was most helpful and accommodating. We had a rental car however a bus stop was right out front. The breakfast was very good. The rooms were nice. After reading... More

Based on Rick Steves recommendation we booked several months in advance. When we arrived we were given a small tight attic room with no windows, only a sky light. Upon going to bed later in the evening we found several BUGS IN THE BED - disgusting! Ceiling heighth caused us to bang our heads on the slope of the ceiling... More
