“Great location, great staff.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

The location of the hotel is excellent as it is right in the city center on a cobblestone street. Our rooms were clean and quaint with wood beamed ceilings and furnished with antiques. The woman who greeted us upon check in was fantastic - friendly, quirky and funny. Every hotel should employ staff like her.

The breakfast was good, but fairly standard for Austria. Fresh breads, cheese and meat trays, cereals, dried fruit and hardboiled eggs were offered along with fresh coffee, teas and juices.

I recommend the hotel restaurant for dinner. Our food was excellent.

My only complaint about the hotel: The rooms (or at least the one we stayed in) did not have air conditioning. While this normally isn't an issue in this region of Europe, the night we stayed was uncomfortably warm. We slept with our windows open and the street noise was very loud. We heard people talking in the streets until approximately 2am and construction started a few blocks away around 8am.

All in all, I would absolutely stay here again, but not in the warm summer months.

I would recommend this hotel due to the excellent service and extremely helpful manager, not to mention great location. The room was fairly basic as was the shower, but there was nothing wrong with it. Good breakfast too.

Great location - super manager - property is said to be 600 years old - bound to be some problems. Shower needed repair as soon as we arrived - repairs started and finished next morning.
Room had tired furniture - non-working TV - noisy restaurant downstairs., but overall an enjoyable experience.

This hotel has got it all. The location is perfect, right in the center of the old part of Salzburg where it takes only minutes to walk to everything. Great food, beer and service at the restaurant.
The room we had (number 12) was very comfortable and spacious with a very good size bathroom. We didn't hear any noise at all from the street. Salzburg is a lovely and quiet town.
But most of all the welcome we received from the hotel manageress Ulrike provided the best welcome we've received in any hotel all around the world. She is friendly, professionnal, funny, attentive and so on. The breakfast buffet is great with a very good choice of cereals, fruits, cold meat, cheeses, egg, bread, juices, etc...Would highly recommend anyone to stay at this hotel when in Salzburg.

The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Hotel is very conveniently located in the Old Town. Room was spacious and clean.

Breakfast was enjoyable and good to start to the day.

Only minor issue was the shower was not fully enclosed and therefore it was difficult to keep the water only in the shower.

However we would most definitely stay there again and would recommend to anyone visiting Salzburg.

Right in the heart of the Old Town. Ancient building, with good amenities and a very welcoming and hospitable proprietress. Breakfast buffet was excellent and the manageress couldn't do enough for us. We would return.
