“Good location, strange room configuration”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

We stayed here for two nighs. It is walking distance to the main Salzburg train station, Salzburg Bahnhof. The bathroom was recently renovated and very nice. We had a double, which meant two twin sized beds on opposite sides of the room (some European rooms have twin size beds, but next to each other). The room was a bit cramped even compared to other European hotels we've stayed at, but it worked out okay. We did not find there to be a problem with train noise.

The breakfast buffet was very good, probably the best I've seen in this price range. But it's true that the coffee is really bad and we're not that picky. Wifi access was very fast and easy to use. If there was one thing to make our stay better, we would have preferred to have a hotel safe to store our electronics and better outlets. The outlet situation was strange because you could only charge your electronics in one side of the room if the light switch were turned on, but you wouldn't want the lights on while you were sleeping at night and trying to charge your phone or computer.

Talk about a quiet room in the middle of the city!
The room was quiet, comfortable, roomy and welcoming. Parking was not right on site but only about half a block away. It is within a few blocks from the rail station and a short 2 block walk to Mirabelle Gardens, among lots of other things. Bus routes are plentiful and easy to get to old town.

Only paid $80 for a spic n span room 10 min walk form HBF station and 8 minutes from the historic center of Salzburg. Very good and reasonably priced restaurant and beer garden on the hotel premises as well. Would stay again.

The location of the hotel is easy to be located, only 8 minutes walk from train station (HBF) of Salzburg.

The room is spacious and clean. It was well managed, though it was not very new. Staying here, you can access to the famous attractions on food with around 15 minutes walk. The main road in front of the hotel is a bit noisy. It's much better if you close the windows.

The restaurant on ground floor provides very nice food.

The only drawback of this hotel is that, the hotel WiFi blocks all videos (including Youtube). You cannot watch online video during your stay here.

Great location very close to Mirabell Palace and the gardens. A short walk across the river to the old town. Also a short walk from the train station and bus tours.

The hotel offered an excellent breakfast, spacious rooms (by European standards) and painless parking.

We liked the hotel even though it was about a 15 minute walk to the old town, we needed the walk anyway. The walk took us by the beautiful Mirabell Gardens and the local Hop on Hop off bus stop, Mozart's home and across the foot bridge on the river. Good free WIFI. Decent size and clean room. The staff was very friendly and helpful making us feel very welcome. They also made good recommendations for restaurants. Breakfast buffet was excellent and included with the room as was the auto parking near the hotel. We would go back and highly recommend this hotel when in Salzburg.

Good value for money, close to central train station, 15-20 minutes walk to old town, just near the beautiful Miraball gardens. fine breakfast, good free WiFi, air-conditioned (very important in summer and all too rare among Salzburg hotels). A little noisy due to proximity to central train station.
