“The definition of a boutique hotel.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2010

Visiting the Hotel Am Dom was a wonderful part of my holiday in Austria. It's location was ideal... on a picturesque side street very close to the centre of town. The staff could not have been friendlier or more thoughtful, despite the language barrier. It was a beautiful hotel which could boast all the luxuries of modern conveniences while still maintaining in architectural character at a very reasonable price.

We booked this hotel after reading good reviews here and at booking.com and we were not disappointed. This hotel has a very very good location - its bang in the middle of the old town, on Goldgasse street literally within a stone's throwing distance (with a strong arm, of course) to the Dom. Funicular to go up to the salzburg castle is within walking distance too. The rooms are new and very stylish - and very comfortable beds too! And free Wi-Fi in the entire hotel!

Two minor shortcomings -there's no room service for food and only a limited breakfast spread + it was quite understaffed with one man running the show from handling the reception to making eggs for us at breakfast!! As there are plenty cafes and restaurants around the lack of food didn't really bother us though..

We were actually sent over to Hotel Am Dom because a nearby hotel (Zur Goldene Ente) couldn't fill our reservation. What could have been a bad situation turned out fantastically, as we got a great rate at the pricier Dom, a free dinner, and were treated to a sophisticated, newly renovated hotel right in the heart of Salzburg. The staff was friendly & accommodating, the room chic, and it was a great starting point for all of our Salzburg adventures (embarked upon on foot). One word of caution- the glass bathroom doors, although frosted in the most critical 60%, do reveal more of your bathroom activities than you might expect. While it's fine for couples, it might be awkward for family members and colleagues visiting your room.

The hotel is located in the very middle of the old town, the feeling is great: not only all the monuments are close by but, little by little, you are being absorbed in the history of the city and start feeling like living in the 17th century. The hotel is very modern and very efficiently run, rooms are small but highly comfortable. Breakfast is good, quite consistent, eggs cooked as you wish, any kind of coffee or tea, even Red Bull is available! Everything is very cozy. Still the best feature of this hotel is the friendliness and helpfulness of the entire personnel, from hotel manager to staff: they manage to make you feel a strange mixture of 'visitor' 'at home'.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2009

We had stayed here twice before prior to the renovations.
It was rustic and cottagey back then and I really liked that.
We arrived to discover that they had totally gutted it and that it was now a boutique hotel with every conceivable luxury.
I was a little sad at first, but I got over that pretty quickly, especially once I realised that the old owner was still helping them out.
This place it elegant and comfortable in every aspect.
The staff are friendly , the breakfast remarkable (allow an hour) and as always the location is the best in Salzburg. One step out the door and you're in the centre of the old town.
You can't go wrong.

My husband and I are well travelled, having been from Hong Kong to New York to Sydney....and this was the best hotel experience we had! I would recommend this hotel to anyone and look forward to visiting again. When my 3 children recall our stay in Salzburg, they only talk about our 'friends' at the hotel. This owner operated hotel was truly spectacular....we miss you!
