This hotel closed in 2006 or 2007 and over the past five years a number of unsuccessful attempts have been made to find a new investor. A planned re-opening early in 2012 never happened.
It was indeed a great place and for a while the Kobenzl was regarded as one of the top hotel in Salzburg.
If you are looking for a quality hotel (with very good restaurant) a little outside of the city and with great views and walks I would recommend to check out the Romantikhotel Die Gersbergalm. As we own a house in Salzburg we never stay in hotels and only ever use restaurants and on a number of visits this one was excellent.
The hotel is located very near the Kobenzl
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Our home is quite an old lady: In the 60ies, 70ies and 80ies people like Margaret Thatcher, Richard Nixon and Jose Carreras stayed here to enjoy the unique view. Today only the furniture is reminiscent of these days. Now we are a small, family-owned Bed& Breakfast. With your stay at our B&B comes a small breakfast with regional products, a unique room with a small balcony with a nice view over Salzburg, four hectares of woods and meadows, a huge library and a nice bar that is open from 9pm till 1 o'clock in the morning with free drinks. The only requirement is that every guest brings a book and a bottle of her favorite drink (alcoholic or nonalcoholic). The book can be exchanged at our library (bring one, take one) and the bottle will be put at the bar (bring one, drink one). Enjoy sunrises and -sets, go for a hike or visit the city during the day. ... more less
