“Traditional Guesthouse in hills above Salzburg”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2009

We were booked into this Alm as a Salzburg friend had a party here, otherwise we would never have discovered it! It takes about 25 minutes to drive from the centre of Salzburg, but once you turn out of the Elsbethen suburb there are a series of steep hairpin bends - not a place to stay in Winter. Not possible to stay here without a car.
Elsbethen is close to the Southern Park and Ride which helped us avoid negotiating the town centre and paying high weekday charges for parking.
The house is an old Alpine chalet with about 15 rooms and a lot of small restaurant rooms and a large terrace. Full of character, lots of space around it, excellent children's playground adjacent, field of goats below, walking routes right outside the door. This would be a great place for hikers or those with active kids. We found it an excellent base to explore Salzburg - a real mountain/country feel yet a very short distance from Salzburg centre and a fraction of the price of staying in the city.
Many rooms are basic with shared facilities but the price reflects that, it is very good value.
One downside: although the environment is very peaceful, many rooms overlook terraces and guests' noise can be disturbing. The air is so clear a normal voice seems to travel far!
Good breakfast included in the rate and the meals we had were typical Austrian fare - lots of sausages! There are a few cafes/restaurants at the bottom of the hill in Elsbethen, which is close to Anif and Hellbrun where there is a wider selection of restaurants.
We stayed here 3 days and also the Gerl on the other side of Salzburg - two totally different hotels, one traditional Austrian chalet in the mountains, one a more standard international type of hotel in the plain near the airport.
There is a stunning view of the town from the Erentrudisalm and we spent the rest of the week looking back up at the Alm - a dot in the distance - from wherever we were in Salzburg!
