The location of this hotel was great. My room window look right at the old horse washing station (now it looks like a fountain). And the front door walks right onto the shopping street of Salzburg (LV is literally next door) with tons of restaurants cafes. The breakfast is a good spread perfect for a busy touristy day afterwards. The... More

Very good location! A charming, ecclectic boutique hotel. Also convenient with kids because of the informal relaxed atmosphere. And very, very good food. Big variety on the breakfast buffet with good coffee. And very good dinner, not cheap but reasonable. Nice Terrasse in summer!

Overall it is an ok hotel with friendly staff, and the location is great. What disappointed me was the size of the room compared to the pictures online and the inability of the air conditioning to actually cool the room. Being hot & sticky while trying to sleep is not easy, and not made any better by the rough sheets.... More

Very welcoming, beautiful renovated Hotel in a veeery old building (one of the oldest hotels of Salzburg). A lot of art pieces on the walls (originals), friendly staff, great breakfast buffet, extra tea room on the first floor with a lot of books (and cookies :-)), dvds to borrow. The room is a mixture of old and new, art and... More

The Art Hotel Blaue Gans was a perfect place for our Salzburg visit. A very nice hotel (with Air condition!!), right in the middle of the old town. Our room was very large and very quite...leading to a good sleep. We'd stay here again.

We had a wonderful "small" room towards the interior court (quiet), there is plenty of space, a separate toilet, dressing and a spacious shower with an old vault. The design is sober and comfortable. Service is polite and helpful and at the breakfast buffet you got everything you need. The situation in the Old town and near the Altstadtgaragen is... More

Let's face it, Salzburg is a tourist town and unlike business/tourist hotels the clientele is forever changing. I think that this wash of changing faces has impacted on the service level at this property in some way. The hotel has a brilliant location, you can walk everywhere from here comfortably. Our room had opening windows and plenty of space -... More

The hotel is located right at the center of the old city on a very active street. Walking distance from all old city attractions. Bus stop from/to the airport and central station is right behind the hotel. Cozy breakfast buffet but acceptable varieties and food quality. Staff are so friendly and helpful. Room is a bit small but clean and... More

So, this hotel is beautiful; the labyrinthian hallways and art were fun; the location is superb; the breakfast is divine; the beds were comfortable; but, those towels! At these prices, I need a towel with some fluff. And, a washcloth! Seriously, the towels were rough enough to take a star away from an otherwise 5 star hotel. And, I like... More

We stayed here for my partner's 50th birthday celebration and it is a beautiful hotel on the ritziest street in Salzburg. The room we had opened onto a small herb garden and was a tranquil space to rest. The restaurant is a delight and the breakfast is to die for... Lots of interesting, fresh choices. But what really sets this... More
