We stayed at the hotel for 2 nights and it was the perfect location for our trip. We only had 1 full day to sightsee and this was the perfect starting point in Salzberg. There is off-site parking (actually inside the large mountain) very close to the hotel. My recommendation would be to call or email the hotel ahead of time to find out how to get to the parking garage. It took us about 30 -40 minutes of frustratingly driving around trying to find parking. If you do not call ahead just find a parking spot outside of the city walls, walk to the hotel, and they can then direct you. This is what we ended up doing. Be sure to go to breakfast hungry as there is a very large selection of cheeses, meats, eggs, breads, and assorted juices...it was fansatic! There was so much food that we even skipped lunch we were so full! There is a wine bar downstairs, however, it was closed during our visit. The location is great for starting the walking tour, walking into the new town, close to restaurants and bars! We stayed in a recently renovated room close to the upstairs lounge where tea and cookies were served all day. This was a fantastic stay and we would definitely stay here again if we ever return to Salzberg!
