“hotel okay, avoid restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

When I travel for my work, I always choose hotels with a restaurant, because I don't feel like going out on my own in the evening. I realize I have to give in on quality, but I gain on convenience. Having said that, the low standard of quality at the restaurant of the Mercure Salzburg City was not what I bargained for. I gave my order for a drink. More than 15 minutes went by, the waiter muttered something about a group of Americans, brought me my drink (1/8 of wine instead of 1/4 and still water instead of sparkling). Then they brought my main course, forgetting about the starter. I ended up having my starter after the main course. When I brought this up with the waitress, she gave some sort of lame apology. The waiter, however, was apparently man enough to make mistakes, but not to come over and apologize. When I checked out and mentioned what happened, the receptionist said: Ï'll have to find out what went wrong". Other than that, room was fine, shower in the bath.

Comfortable modern and clean hotel max. 20 min. walk from centre of old town. Underground parking available for €11-/night, free wifi & adequate speed. We stayed in a small suite (room 212) which was big enough for 4 people (sofa extended to allow for an additional bed) with view towards the back, hence avoiding busy front side road. No smoking hotel. Breakfast was ample however a little lacklustre. Staff friendly, service OK. Good value considering location and timing. Will be back next time again. Had dinner in Bella Vita just around the corner which was an excellent choice if you are not in a hurry.

My wife and I stayed at the Mercure Salzburg City for 6 nights during a trip to Europe. It was one of the nicer hotels we stayed in during our trip and we enjoyed the experience. The room and bathroom were quite spacious, easily the largest we encountered on our entire trip. The employees were tremendously helpful in navigating the city and finding local restaurant gems. The location isn't ideal, but the walk to the train station and older parts of the city are still within 15 minutes. Overall we would gladly stay here again!

Nice comfortable hotel in quiet location. Beds nice and bathroom well stocked (towels, soap, lotion etc.) Lots of closet space and bench space for suitbags, free wifi. Close to downtown - a brisk 10 minute or more leisurely 15 minute walk, also near bus line. We walked from the train station pulling our bags, a bit of a walk but very doable. Staff quite helpful with good restaurant recommendations. I would definitely stay here again!

We stayed at Mercure City as part of a group. Reception was clean and well appointed but nothing special. Our room was nice, clean, and the beds comfortable. The bath was nice, fairly roomy by European standards. All in all, very nice indeed. I am not a fan of duvets (I think they are too hot) but made do. I suppose I could have asked for a blanket, but we were only there one night.
Breakfast was very nice with a large array of breads, cheeses, cereals, and my personal favorite - croissants! There was hot food and it looked nice but we eat a simple breakfast when traveling.
I would not hesitate to stay here again.
