“Good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2014

We stayed at this hotel on our way Italy, it was the perfect stop for a quick day trip to Salzburg. The hotel is an easy 10 min walk to Old Town, which is exactly where you'll want to start your visit. The hotel is comparable to other European hotels - clean & simple. In addition to the great location, the hotel had decent wifi (free) and a pretty good breakfast buffet. A con is the parking. The have a small sign for hotel parking, which holds about 3 small compact cars. However, there are plenty of public parking & garages...you just have to pay.

We parked right across the street where parking was free until 9AM, then we paid the meter fee while we toured the city. Worked out great.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2014

We stayed two nights at The Goldenes Theatre Hotel in Salzburg. It is very good value, depending on what you want. Location: it is handy to the station (about 15 mins walk) and very handy to the Altstadt (old city) (less than 10 minutes’ walk). Breakfast: plentiful and quite good (cereal, yoghurt, cold meat and cheese, scrambled eggs and bacon, toast, bread, coffee, etc). Wireless internet connection in the rooms was very slow and patchy. There is a PC available at reception for guests’ use which had a good connection. The room was adequate: warm, comfortable with shower. Staff were pleasant and helpful. Summary: hard to beat for the price. Recommended.

I haven't stayed anywhere else in Austria to compare it. The room is clean and a decent size. The bathroom was extremely dated (1970s or 1980s). Not what you would expect from an american style hotel. No dresser, but enough closet space. Breakfast is included. The location is pretty close to the old town and lots of shopping.

This hotel was a pleasant surprise. The location was great, bus just outside the door, facilities fantastic and the room well equipped. The room came with internet access and breakfast and if need a computer was also available (which I used). Breakfast was plentiful, tasty and everything you could need.

My only complaint is that I booked a tour through reception and the information the receptionist gave me was incorrect and it appeared to me that she was only interested in selling it and not explaining what was in it. The reception staff were not the most pleasant I think they could use some training in customer service.

All the facilities and the room was excellent

Pros
5min walk to the city and a great location to reach the Old Town. Nice clean rooms and spacious, especially for Salzburg's reputation. Bar downstairs open throughout the night so it was great to chill out and have a drink after a long day travelling.

Cons
not much .. we paid a good price after finding a deal but i heard that the normal rate was pretty expensive.. definitely wait out for 100-120 euro a night for this place

Goldenes Theater hotel is quite old, a little shabby and is about a 20 minute walk from the town centre. Nonetheless the experience myself and my 2 friends had staying here was very enjoyable. The staff were helpful, the room was much larger than i expected, and the breakfast was a tasty bonus! Some of the furnishings, such as little doll-like decorations in the restaurant, were a bit wierd...

If you want to see Salzburg on a a budget and don't get held up on the small faults, this hotel is a great choice, good value for what you get!
