What can I say about Hotel Golden Ente. We had four fantastic nights in this Hotel, and right now I cant wait to go back.
We arrived from Munich via the train, and before I arrived I e-mailed the Hotel to advise them we would not be arriving until about 8.00pm and to ask for directions to the hotel from the station, Ulrike e-mailed me and advised that taxi was the best option, and it would cost about right euro.
We arrived at the station, got the taxi, and it did cost eight euro! Taxi drops you just around the corner from the hotel as hotel is on pedestrian street.
The hotel bulding is aboout 700 years old, set in the old town, in lovely long narrow streets, very charming. We checked in no problem, girl on reception was so helpful in providing us with a map and list and options of things to see and do in Salzburg, straight away we got a feeling that we would be happy in this hotel.
The room was lovely and quaint, nice size room, nice view overlooking the narrow street. Lovely old style, hotel/room, Nice big wardrobe with dressing gowns, slippers, umbrella, safe all in the wardrobe. The bathroom was a nice size, plenty of room and what I loved was the big deep bath, deeper than what I have seen in a long time. Maybe its my imagination I think the bathroom floor was heated also. TV with plenty of channels on it, nice little table and chair facing the window. And the room was lovely and warm, we slept like a log that night.
We got up that morning and went to breakfast and we got a fantastic greeting from Ulrike at the breakfast, welcomed us to the hotel, was so helpful when he asked her about tours and the sound of music tour, she arranged the tour to collect us that day. The breakfast was really good with the usual tea/cofffee etc cereals, juices, yougarts, toast, meat, fruit, egg etc fantastic choice.
The hotel had internet access for free to all residents also near our room which was a plus, as we stayed in a 4 star hotel in Munich and had no internet as all they had was wireless, which was a bit of a let down.
We ate most nights in the restaurant down below, staff there were top class, we were served by 2 girrls and they were so so helpful and the service was really fast, the apple studle there was the best ever!
In terms of location the hotel is dream, turn right and your right on Mozart place, which is where the tourist office is, Salzburg Musuem, horse trips, and hotel is few min walk to the finuclar train up to the Fortress, which is class. I cant state enough how central the hotel is to everything in Salzburg.
Bit of advise; make sure you go to the tourist office and get the Salzburg card; you will save a lot of money on various musuems and some tours, plus it allows you free access on the bus, you should get it.
Cant stress enough also how helpful and always in good form Ulrike was, it was so nice having that sort of attention in a hotel today, which is why we will certainly return there.
