The central location of the Radisson Altstadt is a blessing and a curse: handy for the historic centre but noisy- either in the rooms facing the Judengasse or I suspect those looking across the main road to the Salzach River. Though here in a relatively cool evening the bedroom had heated up and with no aircon that window just has to be open. Somewhere nearby is a compressor thudding away till 2 a m.
No need to set the alarm- the cathedral bells at 7 am would wake the dead!
It's well appointed but the welcome is strange. A free drink is offered and when you ask where the bar is, they take you there. But it is in practice closed with not a soul in sight on Sunday evening!
I avoided the 26euro breakfast and instead had a delicious apricot croissant and excellent coffee out of doors on the nearby Residenzplatz for 4 euros 50.
Such is the tourist demand in Salzburg such a hotel can survive despite offering due to its location much less on amenity and comfort than the modern traveller expects,and at a full price in season. I would avoid it in hot weather but if the location is the thing, here it is.
