After many years coming to Salzburg to perform in the Festival, we finally decided to spend the extra money to stay here. It was well worth it to be so close to the Grosses Festspielhaus and everything else in Old Town. Also, the extra expense is offset by earning SPG reward points ;-) This ancient hotel is charming and the... More

This hotel was in a great location in Salzburg. The staff and service was great, however the rooms and beds are not up to par. It is not worth the ridiculous price! I know the hotel suppose to represent the "historical charm".. I had back issues from lumpy bed mattress. AC did not work properly an cow webs in the... More

Excellent legendary hotel. Ideally located close to the Salzburg Festival halls. First room was a bit noisy as located on the Getreide Gasse so we changed to a room with a view on the courtyard. It was very comfortable and quiet. Wifi is included and so powerful you get reception 100 meters away from the hotel. But we would not... More

This was my second time staying here. The first time was 10 years ago with my husband and two young sons. I returned again a couple weeks ago on my way to a family wedding and was pleased to see the hotel is still as lovely as ever. This property stands the test of time with consistent service, accommodations, and... More

Had a great experience at this one of kind hotel. The second you step foot on property you feel like you have been transported back in time. The décor is charming and quaint, because this is a historic hotel the ceilings in the stairwells are quite low so be mindful of that, you don't want to ruin a vacation by... More

Second stay here in 4 years, absolute wonderful experience. We drove, make sure you follow the instructions on the web site as you need to arrive from the back side of the hotel (through the tunnel). Great assistance with the car, wonderful check in experience, we were upgraded to a nice room (#9), and we were unable to find a... More

We spent the extra to stay in a "Luxury Collection" hotel. We've stayed in a few of these and they're generally nice. They can be a little hit and miss--but generally nice. The Goldener Hirsch, however, was definitely a miss. 1. Luggage service--I had to bring in my own luggage. 3 big bags for my family. 2. Our room smelled... More

We spent 2 nights at the Hotel Goldener Hirsch, absolutely loved it. The hotel is adjacent to the pedestrian shopping streets. There was some infrastructure replacement taking place on the street outside the hotel, it had no impact on our stay. We had breakfast one morning, expensive, but very good. As we were a traveling with 2 teenagers, we had... More

Among arrival to the hotel, you will surely notice right away that the decoration of the hotel is kept to its historical design. Which is fitting since it is located in the Altstadt (Old Town). While on the subject of location, what a place to be at. A lot of attractions nearby, Mozart birthplace, Mozart square, churches and more. Moreover,... More

We've stayed a many Luxury Collection hotels and they are generally top drawer. Not as consistent as the Four Season, but overall good. Well, the Goldener Hirsch was a huge disappointment. We arrived at the hotel and taxi driver unloaded our luggage to the street. No help from the hotel, so I sent my wife into the hotel to check... More
