“Ok for short term stay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2013 via mobile

The hotel is FAR from the centre, so you should be aware of that when you book it. The bus station is right around the corner, but the ticket is 2.5 euros one way,so that's pretty expensive in my opinion. We had a spacious room, but with very poor lighting. Nice staff, clean hotel, ok for those who don't mind taking the bus every time they need to get to the city center.

Dear "Elena",

thank you for your review! We are glad that you had a pleasant stay with us, despite the small distance to the old town.
Maybe you could try some of the other MEININGER Hotels in other European cities which are located more central.

We would be definitely pleased to welcome you again!

Best wishes

We were two families with small kids and appreciated the option of preparing food for the kids in a kitchen - an excellent combination of a hotel property with hostel functions. The rooms were really clean and quiet

Room Tip: Rooms facing the yard are very quiet

Undoubtedly, a great place to stay in Salzburg! 2km from the train station with convenient buses to the station (Bus#2) and the city centre (bus #4). I reached there early in the morning; but couldn't check in right away. However they have a convenient luggage facility where I could dump my stuff. Additionally, one can buy the Salzburg Card at the reception itself - which is an all access pass to all of the city's major attractions (and free use of public transport).

While the room and the bed is very much in line with what one would find in any European hostel, what I liked was the fact that they had a great guest kitchen. All in all, a definite thumbs up!

Very overpriced for what it is, we found cheaper hotels which were better. Not in a ideal location, but close enough. Simone on reception was very rude. I love the kitchen facilliaties and with an Aldi across the road, you can make a great meal! Rooms are minimal but livable but there's fantastic views!

Dear behtannkneeky,

thank you for your review!

We do regret that your stay with us was not to your full satisfaction. Due your feedback we have talked with our staff members involved and drawn our conclusion in this matter.

MEININGER always tries to offer the best rates to our costumer, but you are right at peak season or special dates prizes in Salzburg are raising.

We would be pleased to welcome you again at MEININGER and convince you of our costumer service.

Kind regards
Your MEININGER Salzburg Team

Meininger Salzburg was just a step away from the city center (walkable if you want to or accessible by bus) but other than that, it was pretty clean, had wifi and the staff was friendly. Stayed for one night only but definitely would stay here again if I come back. It is so cheap and yet you get a lot of good service.

Me and my friend were travelling around Germany/Austria this summer and we were on a budget so we looked for good value places to stay.
I had stayed in a Meininger Hotel before with family and was really enjoyable, so I recommended that we stay here for location and price. Once we eventually found the hotel from the station (I wouldn't recommend walking) we were very happy at how it looked. We checked it which wasn't the best as well felt the receptionist was a little rude. Anyway once we had checked in and got to our room which was very clean and spacious with beautiful views of the mountains we felt very comfortable at the hotel.
We were about 30-40 minutes walking distances from the center but there we also bus stops outside the hotel which takes you direct into the center in about 10-15 minutes which was handy.
There was an Aldi opposite the hotel which was good as we bought food we could cook at the hotel as there was a communal kitchen with all of your kitchen appliances etc. This was a really nice experience and was a good way to meet new people.
As I mentioned before we were on a budget and if you are on a budget I wouldn't recommend buying stuff at the hotel as a large bottle of water cost me 4euros which was a lot on a budget.
There was Wifi available in the hotel which was good, and the overall experience was very good, and I do believe I would stay again due to location and it being a nice hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front as you get beautiful views of the mountains

This hotel had a hostel-like atmosphere, with a varying degree of facilities for travellers of all styles. Cheap food and drink available from the front desk, and a guest kitchen for those wanting to cook their own meals.

The staff was always friendly to us, and helpful whenever we needed assistance.

The rooms were modern, and clean.

The hotel is an easy 20 minute walk to Old Salzburgh past shops and cafes. If you don't like the walk there is public transit right around the corner.

We enjoyed our stay, and would stay there with the kids again, if we return to Salzburgh.

There is also FREE wi-fi throughout the hotel which is a bonus.
