“Excellent hotel in a great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

We had an unforgettable night in the hotel. Everything was perfect, the room is simply wonderful, and its cleanliness also. Our only problem was the small variety at breakfast.
But i can only recommend this hotel, because it is 10 minutes from the downtown.

Confortable and new hotel, with nice and clean rooms, good breakfast, less than a km far from the city center. We were traveling with a 11-year-old child: his small bed was uncomfortable but the staff proposed to upgrade to a bigger room for free. There are only a few free parking places outside, and the covered parking is 11 € a night.

My wife and I spent 4 days in this hotel, exploring the area. Lovely large room & bathroom. All very clean, and comfortable. There was even a fridge, which we were able to use for our own drinks. The staff were friendly, the Wi-Fi was usable, altough stronger in the lobbby. Although the hotel was out of town, on the first day we walked, and discovered a pedestrian concourse, with great shops. We realised how much we would have missed had we used the bus. We bought a Salzburg Pass, which gave free transport to all the atractions in the city. Well worth doing!

Room Tip: Our room was rear facing away from the street, overlooking gardens. Very quiet, and we kept the air...

We spent 2 days in Salzburg. We arrived on September 3rd afternoon and left on the 5th. First contact with the young fellow at the reception desk was absolutely unpleasant. With no reason and totally unprovoked he made unacceptable comments related to our citizenship (Canadian) and ethnic background (Romanian). I had to endure his "nice" and "polite" comments on two occasions same day (3rd of September) when we registered and after a while when we asked some directions to get to the underground parkade. His attitude in both occasions was totally unprofessional.
Leaving this aside, fortunately we didn't have the pleasure to meet this character again, our stay in the hotel was very pleasant. Convenient location in a quiet area at walking distance from old town, the service (room, dining) was very good. The room was clean and pleasant.

I stay at the hotel Mercure with my family for 3 nights and we really enjoy it. Hotel is clean, staff is very friendly and smiling, breakfast is good. Only a few minutes to the centre and castle, 20 minutes by car from wonderful Kings Lake and mountains...We are looking forward to come back and stay at Mercure again.

We (two couples) booked two rooms for two nights. The hotel is newly renovated and very clean. We ate dinner our first night at the hotel's restaurant. The food was better than expected. I think it was the best weinersnitchel we had on our trip. We needed a hotel with parking. It was 11E/night which was less than we paid lots of other places. The breakfast was 15E ea (also the going rate). We had A/C and a window that opened. I was pleased there was a magnifying mirror in the bathroom. The only drawback was the distance from old town. We walked back and forth twice. Quite a distance and some of it through a pretty seedy area. The price and the freshly renovated clean hotel with a friendly staff compensated for the location.
