Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights towards July end.
The hotel is located far from the city center is about 20 mins walk from the eurail station as well as the city center. The close proximity of the hotel is rather dead at night (except another hotel bang opposite). When I read the name of the hotel read as Holiday Inn Salzburg "City" I made a mistake to believe it was in the city center. Proven incorrect. In terms of location, this hotel is a complete No.
The rooms were neat and clean but like rooms of most European hotels - the rooms here were also on the smaller side. There was no balcony like the pictures claimed to have. Infact, I couldn't find balconies in any of the rooms. May be they have done away with them. The lighting behind the bed (highlighting the wooden front) was looking very nice at right. Quality of sleep was excellent thanks to the good quality of pillows and mattresses being used. The bathroom was rather large as compared to the room. But there was a faint smell in the bathroom whenever the exhaust was on. We didn't bother to report it to the management though. They had provided a bottle of Fizz water in the room which I wish was replaced with still water.
Service & Breakfast:
The staff at the reception were helpful. One particular guy (can't recall his name) was very cheerful and helped us really well to plan our day in and around the city. The internet at the hotel is free for only 1 hour during the stay. It is a wierd policy since only 1 hour is provided even if a guest is staying for 1 day or 1 week. This is rather awful in today's era. The breakfast at the hotel was very good and as per the standards of Holiday Inn. They had a lot of options in food and drinks and a coffee vending machine for our choice of coffee. Nice.!
