“Great service and perfect location for exploring old town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

We stayed here two nights in late June and the room was very comfortable. It was just minutes from a little square filled with restaurants and bars and an easy walk to the Salzburg fortress. The staff at the front desk spoke perfect English and helped arrange restaurant reservation for us at a restaurant we'd heard was good. They also recommended a good place for our friends to buy a reasonably priced dirndl and lederhosen for another friend's Vienna wedding rehearsal dinner.

You cannot beat the location of this historic hotel situated right in the heart of Old Town Salzburg. Walk to all the major sites, shopping or restaurants while staying in this centuries old, charming small hotel, updated with all the amenities. The service is impeccable, the rooms are large, and you will even find a delicious chocolate on your pillow each night. WiFi is free and works well and fast! This hotel is a winner!

The Goldener Hirsch oozes old world charm and combines it with top flight service. Our rooms were delightful with sitting areas in what may have been the older section of the hotel. The restaurant served delicious food and has an outstanding wine list. Breakfast was good as was anything from the bar. If you are going to Salzburg, it is hard to find a nicer spot.

Room Tip: Rooms 40 and 41 are charming with nice sitting areas. They can be adjoined if desired. They are on t...

Excellent location on the main part of old town. Great rooms and quirky layout for a 500yr+ building, amenities were ample in the room, wifi well appreciated. Staff were very attentive and helpful, best service I have received, far better than you get at some 5* upscale chains.

Room Tip: Facing over the old street is great, but be aware there can be some noise from the deliveries in the...

This hotel was very nice and the service was great. It is in the heart of old town and very convenient to shopping and restaurants. The rooms were clean and decorated in a very traditional way. This hotel is itself historic, dating back many centuries. It is clear that over the centuries rooms and structures have been added. Because of this it is easy to get lost finding your room. But I found that to be part of the charm. The staff is not "warm and fuzzy", but they are extremely professional and efficient.

We knew we were booking an extraordinary hotel but it exceeded our expectations!!! We usually go bed and breakfast type places and love them but this was amazing. The service, the smiles, turndown service, umbrellas, great restaurants and the location can't be beat. We stayed in room 8 that had a king and a pull out couch for our 15 year old son. Plenty of room, nice desk and the bathroom was huge!!!! Tub and shower separate! Plenty of clothes storage and a great view. But what makes this hotel is the service. The restaurant was full but we went back in to the desk and guess what, walked right in to a table! They have 2 restaurants and we didn't make it to the "best" but what we had was amazing!!! Service there was great! Book this if you are ready for some space and luxury as you travel through Europe, it is expensive but also is a great value!!!

Room Tip: We hade room 8 and it was very large. 2 windows, fold out couch, 2 wardrobes and then a bathroom su...

Stayed here a few years ago and had a wonderful time . The rooms were beautiful done in the Tirol style. This is in the heart of the city and as you step out the main door you have the very best fashion shops greet you. The breakfast is memorable and dinner was fantastic. The staff are very helpful and will meet your every need. I wouldn't stay anywhere else while in Saltzburg.
