“nice hotel, good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2011

A nice hotel well situated in a pedestrian street, yet quiet. Friendly staff and great breakfast.
The only problems I encountered was the pillow, which was too soft. They should give you at least 2 to use. Don't rely on their wake-up calls, better get your own alarm. Other than that, everything else was good.

Room size in the Stadtkrug is adequate for the standard double, ours located on the top (4th) floor (hotel has elevator). I doubt Americans will be satisfied with their smaller room types, so I definitely would consider going with the deluxe or a suite. The bathroom had a nice long vanity counter and typical corner European shower w/ plenty of hot water. Although the TV had only 1 English channel (Bloomsburg--boo), the pillows were the typical European collapsing kind and bed the typical hard style, otherwise the room furnishings and linens were classy, in a fitting vintage Salzburg style. Breakfast was the best we had in Austria, with a big assortment of typical European cheeses, meats, breads, as well as option of bacon/sausage and type of egg from the hotel’s farm outside the city—yummy! All staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel location was fantastic—the Stadtkrug is built into the Kapuzinerberg hill and its 4th floor opens out onto a terrace restaurant and cobble path to the kloster on the top (great views at sunset!). It is in the pedestrian district, a short stroll across the bridge to Old Town, without the hassle and expense of actually being in the Old Town. Only downside is difficulty getting to hotel by car: best plan is probably to take Makartplatz to Bergstrasse as get as far as possible down it, unloading there. Only other drawback was construction noise going on across the street which began at 7am, but then again all the church bells of Salzburg ringing at 6am had already woken us up!

We stayed in this hotel in September 2011. It is so close to everything and the staff could not have been any friendlier or helpful. We loved staying here. The rooms were comfortable, clean , and had great showers.

This hotel is ideal for staying in Salzburg. It is family owned and the gentlemen that owns the place is great. My girlfriend had horrible food poisoning from a different restaurant and he made me some homemade goulash that was fantastic from the cows that he owns so that I did not have to leave the hotel. I chose this hotel due to good cleanliness and location scores and they are dead on. The rooms are clean and you are right in the middle of Salzburg. Easy walking to anything near there. I have worked in hotels for 20 years so trust me this is the spot. Affordable, clean, family oriented, hospitable. Excellent.

Room Tip: I paid a little more for a slightly larger room and it was worth it.

Stayed here for 3 nights. Fascinating old building facing the Linzerstrasse. Rooms comfortable and spacious, though quite dark due to the traditional decor. Our room was at the back and very quiet. Food plentiful and well-cooked - beef comes from their own farm. Excellent position for exploring both the old town and the new.

We have stayed at the Stadtkrug many times over the last 12 years but after our last visit must admit that the quality is steadily declining. On the positive side, the location is excellent, a short pleasant walk from the center of the old town. The staff is also very friendly and personable and you feel you are a family guest. The building itself is also charming and historic. The price is also quite good for Salzburg. The suites, which are actually very large bedrooms with sitting area and very large baths are reasonable at €185/night. Wireless Internet is free in the rooms and fairly good. Unfortunately, this is the end of the good part. The rooms and furnishings are getting very old and have not been updated for many many years. Funky is a polite term, aging and dingy is also accurate. The beds are hard and mattresses thin, linens are rough, towels very thin, pillows and duvets are thin and polyester. Curtains, while a bit newer appear to be of a cheap and unattractive fabric. The bathroom shows serious age with old and not well functioning fixtures, mismatch towel bars, ineffective shower screens and very distasteful black scrubbed but stained signs of mold in the past on the walls. Marble floors are in need of rehoning and polish as they have marks from some past spills from perhaps caustic cleaning solutions. Regrouting is also past due. As mentioned before, the amenities are meager--1970s style packets of shampoo and tiny soap ala US motels. Lighting fixtures are fitted with fluorescent bulbs that are either too bright or too dim. Impossible to see contents of the wardrobe and no full length mirror. The hallways are always hot (who knows why?) and the cleaning person leaves carts of linens, food trays and supplies in the hallways and even the elevator often. Smoking is still allowed in the lobby which has a charming small bar area but for non-smokers, it is too unpleasant to spend any time there. There is no assistance with luggage, turndown service, or robes needless to say. The breakfast has also gotten a bit lean over the years. Breads, a few cheeses and spreads, canned fruit cocktail and muesli with chocolate chips ... And I'm sorry to say even the coffee (and cappuccinos taste thin and boiled). Bottom line, it's time for real refurbishment and redecoration to do justice to this hotel. In the meantime, expect a simply run, friendly, but fading hotel.

Room Tip: Small rooms are very dark with no view.

Stayed in this hotel for one night in Feb 2011. Rooms were very clean,yet just a bit quaint. The quaintness did not extend to the bathroom, which was modern with a very nice shower. Internet service a bit on the slower side but free of charge. Great location in the old town, walking distance to most if not all the usual sightseeing attractions. Front desk service was superb, breakfast was excellent with lots of choices (included in room rate). Alin all a great place to stay in Salzburg.
