In Salzburg, if you want to stay in the old town, we can't think of a better place to stay. Welcoming, clean, hip and cool, The Art Hotel Blaue Gans is our kind of hotel. The studios overlooking the herb garden are small, but quiet and very comfortable. The beds and shower are second to none. The staff took great... More

My daughter and I stayed here for two nights. Pricey for us, but it was worth it. The location in the old town center was unbeatable. Quirky, hip feel with the rooms and decor. Spotless. Breakfast buffet included in our reservation was fabulous, with omelettes of your choice included with a wide ranging offering of meats, cheeses, breads, yogurts and... More

The service and restaurant on site were impeccable, the hotel has a modern decor and vibe in a very old building. The bed was great, the room was large for Europe, and the shower was huge! The location is perfect for exploring Salzburg with most famous sites just a short walk away. I can't recommend the hotel enough. It's worth... More

We arrived Salzburg by train. We bought the Salzburg card at TI right outside of the train station then used the card to take bus#1 to Karajanplatz. The hotel is right across the street from the bus stop. The hotel room decoration is modern and a bit funky, but it's functioning and comfortable. We liked the breakfast choices and the... More

Loved the vibe of this hotel. The decor is fabulous, the rooms are cool. The only thing that wasn't perfect is that one of our windows did not have drapes and the lights from outside (signs) shown brightly in our room. I may not have noticed, but I had not yet shaken off the jet lag and I wasn't sleeping... More

My husband, two children (10 and 7) and I recently spent 3 nights here. We stayed in the family suite (without kitchen). It was very large with a separate master bedroom with king size bed, a single bedroom and a single bed was put into the living room. There was more than ample space. The bathroom was very large with... More
