My wife and I traveled with our two year old daughter to Salzburg for an overnight trip. We picked Villa Trapp a little randomly, but the Trapp story story did catch my eye.
We were very happy we did. It feels more like visiting a friend's beautiful home than a hotel. You eat breakfast in the Trapp family dining room with the owners. The hotel was beautifully restored a couple years ago. Rooms are tastefully decorated, large, even the children's room we stayed in.. Even if there were no history of the Trapps, this would still be a very special place. Prices are very reasonable considering the quality of accommodation.
The location is outside of the downtown area and is quiet (it's adjacent to a monastery.) We used public transportation, and it was quite convenient - either by bus or train, it's about 10-15 minutes from down town or the train station. You might want to print out a map to get there from the train station - it's only 5 minute walk, but you have to make a couple turns, and there are no signs.
Truly, it's one of the favorite places I have ever stayed.

- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Villa Trapp was the residence of the world-famous Von Trapp family, whose life in Salzburg entered history as "The Sound of Music", the most popular musical of all times. The villa is maintained in the style of this period, including 2 luxurious, 60 m² suites. They are exclusively furnished. In the past the Villa Trapp was not accessible to the public. Now you can sleep in the family's rooms and walk on their paths through the villa and the park. This stately building enjoys a quiet location close to the centre of Salzburg, surrounded by the city's largest private park. ... more less
