“Nice hotel near the train station in Salzburg”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

We stayed at the Achat Plaza hotel for 3 nights during our stay in Salzburg. The hotel is about a 15 min walk from the city center, but has excellent, ultra clean rooms with great service. We loved their upgraded bathrooms, and the free sauna service on the 4th floor.

The hotel has charges 6 euros/night for parking, but is right off of the freeway, so convenience is great if you plan to drive. All in all, I would recommend this hotel to anyone for its spotless rooms and great service.

A nice value for the money. I was very disappointed with the room itself. The room décor was very drab and depressingly done and was what I would have expected from a Super 8 motel however the bathroom was completely opposite. It was nicely decorated, clean and with an upscale décor you would expect from a higher end hotel. The front desk was nice and helpful but did charge excessive prices for incidentals. There is an attached restaurant to the hotel with a very nice menu. There is a buffet breakfast served each morning however it is not included with your room. I felt the buffet was a little over priced at 12 euro per person but if you have a large appetite than the price is a value. There is also a spa on the 4th floor with saunas, massage beds and a workout gym which is very nicely done. The hotel is within walking distance to Mirabellplatz and old Salzburg. Overall this hotel was a good value for the price and made me overlook the poorly decorated and furnished rooms.

Very good value for price. Very large comfortable, clean room with spacious vestibule. 5 minute walk from station and bus station and not too far to walk through beautiful gardens and park to the old town or take a bus. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The Salzburg card for attractions and transportation is great value! (Can be purchased from hotel). Wished we had taken advantage of buffet breakfast at hotel because the cafes in Salzburg seemed to allow smoking and food was not very good! Love Salzburg though!

Rick Steve's is right. Salzburg is addicted to the tourist dollar. And like most addicts, they lose sight of the source of the drug and only treat visitors as objects versus customers who may want to return and also tell their friends. We stayed for two nights. No real objections other than not providing a washcloth in its otherwise nice bathroom. I was told it was not so much expected anymore because they tend to walk off. I'm sure that's the case everywhere, but here in Austria it gives the hotel owners a reason to save a few euros per guest. This hotel is just average and offers an expensive buffet breakfast I assume because there are no other choices nearby. Again, there is no effort to provide true value or customer loyalty to the chain.

Checked in here yesterday and was pleasantly surprised. This hotel isn't very expensive but our rooms are very nice. The only downside is that it isn't very centrally located so is about a 15 minute walk to main Salzburg sights.

This hotel was absolutely average, the rooms were on the small side, and need to be updated.
The staff was firendly and helpful when needed.
The location was out a bit out of the way, but accessible to the main train station and local bus routes.

Room Tip: not much to add to my review.
