The main reason we stayed at this hotel was the price. Salzburg hotels in general are on the expensive side, especially in the old town area. We wanted an economical, clean place to stay that was within walking distance to the old town. It’s a fairly new building with a modern design located right by the river bank. It has a nice patio setup with modern furnishings by the river, making for a relaxing atmosphere. The old town is a pleasant 20 minute walk along the river with nice scenery. There aren’t many restaurants in the area but again the old town has plenty to choose from. An added bonus is that it’s a 10-15 walk from the train station.
The front desk personnel are young and personable and eager to help with questions and concerns. We asked for room facing the river but none were available. The other side faces a large apartment building. The room was small compared to other hotels we’ve stayed in Europe. It’s also minimalistic with no added furnishings, basically a bed, chair and stool with a very small table. Storage space is limited but laid out some what efficiently. There’s a small wall mounted flat screen TV but no alarm clock or phone in the room. The bathroom is modern and functional with a large shower area. The air conditioning was great, the bed comfortable and we experienced no noise issues. The hotel offers free WIFI. The primary point is that the rooms were clean and fresh looking and adequate for our one night stay.
The breakfast was served just off the front lobby. The items were limited in variety but well stocked; we paid an extra 7.50 euros each and found the value to be satisfactory.
Overall the Motel One is the perfect option if you’re looking for a budget hotel. What it lacks in some amenities it more than makes up for it in price. We would definitely stay here again.
