“A room with a view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

Hotel Bristol is fantastic. The staff is incredibly welcoming and very helpful with tips re restaurants, sights and shopping. You cannot beat the location, right across the street from Mozart's house. While the town of Salzburg is picture perfect, Hotel Bristol is located in a quieter neighborhood and in easy walking distance from the city center across the bridge. The hotel's breakfast is terrific with a bit of everything, and the Sketch bar is the perfect place for a pre-dinner or late night cocktail.

Stayed here for 4 nights in October 2013 after traveling by train from Vienna. It is only 1 km from train station and a few minutes walk from the bridge into old town. Perfect location. Wonderful breakfast buffet included in room prices including hot & cold food and eggs to order. Hotel is a 400 year old building updated with beautiful unique rooms of character. We had a huge room at end of hall on 3rd floor. Lots of storage space and a great large bathroom, tub with shower attachment. Very clean, very quite, lovely view. Bus stop a few feet from hotel door to catch bus to Hellbrun Palace. Staff very helpful with restaurant suggestions, concert tickets (at the fort) and directions to anywhere. Only complaint is beds were very firm

Oh Salzburg! You've captured the heart of yet another traveler. This is such a spectacular city that staying at the spectacular Hotel Bristol simply makes the experience complete. We're traveling for a few weeks with friends through Germany, Austria and Italy and found this hotel on-line last February. We just returned from our journey and must call out to this hotel as being the perfect setting to make guests feel as if they're almost back in Mozart's day. Located on the "quiet" side of the river, you can access buses, taxis, old town, new town, shopping, etc. very easily. However, you're not caught up in the hustle and bustle of the sight-seers on the other side of the bridge.

The Mirabel Gardens and Mozart's house are literally behind and in front of the hotel. A walk to the main pedestrian bridge took all of 5 minutes and shops and other sites were very close by too! If you get a room on the front of the hotel, you will also have a view of the castle on the hills which lends itself to romance when lite up at night!

We certainly enjoyed Happy Hour in the Sketch Bar from 5-7pm where Larisa would laugh and tell us stories of the area. Dinner with Peter in the restaurant was pleasant and the selection of foods were very good and interestingly prepared. Fran greeted us in the moring for breakfast and seemed to always have a smile for us and did her best to make us smile too.

From the front desk staff to the service staff, each and every one was excellent. Recommendations for dinner were always accurate and they worked hard to accommodate even the smallest request.

Thank you Hotel Bristol for making our visit to Salzburg so memorable. We will be back to share the Christmas markets with you very soon!

This hotel is perfectly positioned near everything but on a quiet street, directly across from Mozart's home. The rooms, while not large, are beautiful and very comfortable, with a full bath and free wifi and breakfast. Not cheap, but a nice splurge in a lovely city.

Great service, and great room & location. We booked a deluxe room or the like, was really big and on the top floor overlooking a square. Great furnishings - themed for the history and art. Staff were great - front desk and breaky. Highly recommended.

Upon recommendation of trip advisor reviews, we booked this hotel. It is an excellent choice. The location is perfect, the staff helpful and friendly. We had a deluxe suite which has a reception, foyer/study area, living room, a full bath and a powder room in the foyer area. There are two balconies where one can sit and enjoy on a good day. From our windows, we could see The Mirabelle Garden (which is actually behind the hotel) and the castles. The deco of the suite is simple and comfortable. There are lots of mirrors in the suite. These plus the windows make the room look bright and airy. We dined once at the hotel restaurant. The food was nice and price reasonable (though our meal was included in the package).

We had a 3 night B&B package at this thoroughly charming hotel We couldn't fault a thing From the moment of check in everyone was pleasant, helpful & enthusiastic We did arrive 6 hrs before our luggage ( which was still in Frankfurt ) but when that did finally arrive it was brought up to our room The room - a junior suite was enormous - dual aspect with a fantastic view of the castle & mountains The bed was ginormous & the bathroom larger than some peoples lounge There was complimentary fruit & water & really good quality toiletries It did rain most of the time but there is a pot of umbrellas by the front entrance to make use of
Excellent breakfast in the aptly named Crystal room- lots of mirrors & chandeliers
there was so much to choose from - whatever your taste in breakfast - even champagne to start the day off with in the evening a big bowl of chocolates was put by the lift for guests to help themselves to - a lovely little touch
All in all this is a charming hotel , where nothing is too much trouble & quality excellent

Room Tip: if you can afford the bit extra a suite is well worth the outlay
