“Expensive traditional hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014

Stayed here in the summer months. Bedroom grand, comfortable bed but no A/C, a small free standing fan only, which we knew before arriving. Staff friendly and welcome fruit, chocolate and champagne was a lovely thought. Good location within Salzburg but a fair walk to the nearest car park if carrying luggage. The real negative though was the sparse breakfast buffet, for this reason I would not choose to stay at this hotel again. The hotel was definitely not worth the price we paid.

Excellent hotel in the historical centre of Salzburg. If you are looking for hotel with convenience location, clean and very friendly staff then this the hotel for you. The breakfast is very expensive, however do not consider this seriously, the coffee shop of the hotel is offering excellent breakfast items in very good prices. Also the parking is far but very convinient, the extra discount for the hotel guests makes it also very affordable

We really enjoyed our stay here! We were upgraded to a 1 bedroom suite which was great after a long trip through Europe. The staff were very helpful and pleasant. The location was perfect and walking distance to everything! Very clean and the welcome drink was a nice tough. Only con would be that breakfast was very expensive and we chose to go other places. Could not have been a better stay!!! Highly recommend!

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.

Salzburg was the highlight of my 2 week European vacation...and I was delighted to stay in a hotel with such charm, character and ambiance smack in the heart of the "old city"! My room was HUGE with original hardwood floors and a hallway /door separating the bathroom from the bedroom area. It also had gorgeous antique furniture and THE most comfortable bed, flat screen TV and window with shutters that opened onto the lane. I actually asked the front desk if I had been upgraded...No..I was told this was their standard room category. I can only imagine how lovely their superior rooms would be! I loved being in the old town with its winding lanes, museums, churches, fabulous boutiques and quaint restaurants.
I arrived by train and went to the information booth in the station - They told me which bus would take me directly from the train station to old town (2.60 euros and 15 minute bus ride) and was dropped off approx 8 minute walk from the Radisson..easy peasy.
For those of you who don't like antiques..or are looking for a modern property with all the amenities of home..you will have to cross the river which is also only a 10 - 15 minute walk from old town. There again...there are tons of restaurants and boutiques - just more modern.
For me...the Radisson was the perfect hotel. I might mention that I have been a travel agent for 36 years and have stayed in numerous hotels in Europe. This was one of my favorites.

Room Tip: Some rooms may be noisier than others when the window are open. Best to request a quiet room.

Stayed here as we have stayed in several radisson hotels all over uk but this is a different experience it is based in a good location right in the heart of the old town which is quaint and easy access for tourist attractions. Not had breakfast here as quite expensive and decided to venture out instead. Room is on the fourth floor and very old fashioned don't expect the contemporary radisson look you normally get it's more like yours grandmas bedroom
So be warned no a/c just a wheel round mobile unit which
Is very noisey and leaves a trail of water on the floor which is quite a hazard but researched
It and as is expected bathroom
Has a bath and separate shower and is clean but not what I would normally choose as I like modern hotels which this isn't . No English tv channel except world news which is disappointing as it has rain
So would of killed an hour to chill out however , there is every other language available !! Enjoyed trip but wouldn't come back to old fashioned for me but average hotel and good base

The hotel is less than average, no AC in summer time ! No car park available! The bar is annoying too much,, couldn't sleep well during whole trip. Room service is sucks The hotel deserve no more than 3 stars. Location is the most valuable element in this hotel.
