“Great central location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2013

Stayed at the Hofwirt for 2 nights whilst visiting the Salzburg Christmas markets etc.
Found the hotel to be clean and tidy, staff were very helpful and friendly giving directions etc to where ever we wanted to go, the hotel also provided a free map and marked the locations of the markets for us which was really helpful.
The hotel is situated on the edge of the pedestrian zone with a Taxi rank right outside, the walk down to the river to the old town where the main markets are was about 10 minutes through the shopping streets, bars and café's so ideal really.
There is a fantastic pub like Restaurant just 500 metres up the road ( S'Kloane Brauhaus ) on the left ,that does fantastic food and snacks at reasonable prices try the Pork & Horse raddish in Austrian bread on a cold night it will soon warm you.
Overall I would have no hesitation in staying in the Hofwirt again, the Breakfast is continental but plentiful, plenty of hot water and heating on those really cold nights, and a great location for the markets and sightseeing.

Room Tip: We stayed in a room over looking the main street and never heard a thing in the night so, I would im...

Stayed here for 2 nights at the end of November, room renovated, very small but fine for us, nice and warm as -7 when we arrived! Loved the duvets, really cosy and warm. Luckily didn't want to watch TV as it was tiny and on top of wardrobe. Bathroom far too small, loo and sink in space of 1 sq metre, fortunately shower was great. Breakfast wonderful lots of choice and excellent , 4 star quality. Hotel 5 min walk from centre along a nice pedestrian street. Recommend a visit to Hallstatt, beautiful spot, bus stop just across the road from hotel, no. 150 fantastic scenic journey, then change to train from Bad Ischl.

Helpful staff and nice rooms. Pretty good choice of buffet breakfast included in the room rate, which itself is fairly good value for a city-centre hotel. Nice central location with good secure underground parking on-site, but you have to go outside to get to/from the garage, which is not so good in the pouring rain.

The title says it all: The staff will not lift a finger for its guests to such a degree that even the eggs on the breakfast buffet are served up raw; guests must place them in the vat of boiling water next to them and wait.

We also waited for the WiFi in our room--it never came, only working in the hotel lobby. Same with the hot water--none! While an electric heater that kept the towels warm & dry was a nice touch, the lack of heated water made showers cold, unpleasant, and short.

Requests and complaints were met with indifference, impotence, or simply, "I am just the receptionist, I can't do anything."

While the rooms were clean and the location convenient, the inattentive staff and lack of service left much to be desired. If traveling to Salzburg, book your hotel well in advance as they fill up quickly including this 3 star hotel that hardly earned its first.

The taxi from the airport was about 20 minutes. The hotel was a 10 minutes walk to the river and the centre of activity with bars and restaurants within reach.
The hotel was basic but value for money, with clean rooms and comfortable beds. The bar area is small, but then you are there not to be in the hotel.
The breakfast was good with scrambled eggs, hot bacon, cold meats and cheese, with a variety of breads, fruit etc (very good).

We stayed here for only 1 night. This hotel has good location, very clean, comes with good breakfast. Has a private parking lot in the courtyard, its fee included. They offer free wifi, TV. Rooms are not big (but not small :O)), but should have more storage facility. Bathroom is modern and big enough. Nice staff.

We stayed in Hofwirt 2 nights. The location can not be more central. The hotel located just on the other side of Old City. There is a market just on the corner. Our room was clean, tidy, not big but not small for sure! The bathroom was absolutely modern and shiny. A lady at reception was very helpful and patient will all my question about Salzburg and local food. She adviced a couple of places within walking distance where we could try some local food. We used the advice and didn't regret. Even opposite – both of our dinners in Salzburg we had there (Alter Fuchs). A day trip to Hallstatt again was her advice and it couldn’t be better – so beautiful!
The breakfast was nice and satisfying. Enjoyed egg boiling machine:)
You do it yourself so easily can arrange the needful time and have your morning egg soft or hard and it will hot not cold! Actually it was the first time I had boiled egg in a hotel and it was only because I could have it soft&hot. Yummy! Small but very nice detail :)
Bread, cakes selection, cheese, meat products - everything was fresh and delicious.
100% would stay again and totally advisable!
