“A Comfortable Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2014

I will limit my comments to the negatives expressed by others:

1) No air conditioning - The weather was cool when we were there with highs in the mid twenties and it cooled down at night so this was not a problem. The windows do open which is not always the case in a hotel so I suspect that this hotel would be more comfortable during a hot spell than some that don't have a/c.

2) The raw eggs - Yes, they are in a big bowl RIGHT NEXT TO THE EGG BOILER. In this way you can have your eggs as you like them. Overall the breakfast was the best of any on our trip (six hotels)..


3) The service - Everyone at the front desk was very nice and helpful to us. We needed to catch a flight early in the morning and they even offered to make special arrangements for us to have breakfast before they were usually open - we were astonished. I will say however that we witnessed one of these very helpful women at the desk being very short with another customer. I know that sometimes people whose first language is not English can come across as being a bit gruff but in this case we suspected that the less than friendly service was because the couple was obviously from the Middle East and the woman was wearing a burka. Just a suspicion.

4) WiFi worked very well.

I had a compact, comfortable, no frills room, with all the basic necessities; the hotel has an excellent buffet breakfast. The location is on a street with shops and restaurants and little car traffic (but watch out for cyclists), and is a 15 minute walk to Salzburg old town. I believe you get your money's worth at this hotel.

The hotel was clean and efficent and the desk staff were very helpful to us. The location was great for walking to the old town and enjoying the Christmas market. Secure parking on site. breakfast was good. No complaints at all. Would stay there again without hesitation.

We found this hotel to be very good value for money. It has a good location, rooms and bathroom were clean and breakfast was also good enough.The reception was friendly, but somehow the decoration/furniture there gave a bit "cold" first impression.

We stayed at the Hofwirt for four nights and found it easy to walk to the Mirabell Gardens and the old city. The hotel rooms were clean and modern, if a bit on the small side. Breakfast was perfectly adequate to our needs and the coffee machine was a blast. Reception staff seemed occasionally abrupt but generally helpful. Internet cafe close by and useful because the hotel's wi-fi is only reliable in the lobby and the one computer available for guests was out of order. ATM across the street and lots of good restaurants very nearby. All in all, a comfortable stay!

We stayed here two nights . We were able to walk to old town, mirabell and the bus stop for some great hiking in untersberg. The rooms were decent size comfortable beds. Great shower and lots of shelves for all my things. They had a fan for hot nights. No a/c. The wifi was free. Nice lounge that served drinks. Breakfast was bountiful. Had lots of choices and great coffee. Front desk was helpful and sold us salzburg cards. Grocery right across the street. Nice bench outside lounge window to eat a picnic lunch or dinner.

We had a very pleasant stay at the Hofwirt. This was around mid-May which was cooler so did not miss the aircon. Location is a hughe + as the old town, restaurants, mirabell etc are within walking distance. The area felt very safe.

The hotel is newly renovated and the rooms/bathrooms are nicely done up. The front desk staff during the day were all very helpful. We only encountered a lady who works the late evening shift who seemed a little disinterested in assisting guests with queries etc.

The breakfast spread is pretty decent and filling. Overall, would recommend the hotel for its location, rooms and service. A good 3 star hotel!

Tip: Avoid the tour company that all the hotels are associated with. Instead go to the Mirabell platz and check with the hop-on tour company which offers good discounts and deals.
