Made a quick escape to Salzburg with my friend. We opted to stay at the Sacher because it is perfectly located. The hotel is everything you would expect from the Sacher brand. 5 Star all the way. The room was large and had a great view of the city. We loved the little balcony and enjoyed watching the people go by. Breakfast was good and the staff were wonderfully attentive and very helpful. If you are looking for a classic ambiance with a touch of flare this is your place. Highly recommended.

This review is long overdue and actually prompted by a disappointing stay at another hotel that made me remember how great the Sacher was! My husband and I had a delightful stay in January 2020. We went to Salzburg for twelve days for the Mozart Festival and the Hotel Sacher became a home away from home. From the first moment, we appreciated the warm welcome from the staff (and lovely plate of fruit and desserts they left in our room!). Breakfast was wonderful every day and the room was luxurious and incredibly comfortable. But the best part was truly the kind service...we felt pampered and appreciated every day.

We booked a junior suite for 4 nights, arriving on Sept. 23. Upon arrival we were greeted by Jasmine, a charming lady dressed in traditional dirndl dress, who offered us the choice between two stunning rooms, the second (for a small upgrade fee) being a Panorama Junior Suite facing the fortress and the river, which immediately we fell in love for (see attached photos for reference). Opulent, grand, stunning property with all comforts where we spent some really beautifully hours and peacefully nights. All staff was exceptionally cheerful and kind (front desk, doorman, waiters) which the single exception of the young barman who probably that evening was recovering from a bad day. We had dinner at Ikarus on Wilhelm-Spazier-Straße 7A (which monthly hosts international starred chefs in a wacky location) and at Esszimmer on Müllner Hauptstrasse 33 (another must-try, starred gem).

We recently stayed three nights at the Sacher and had a really great time there; location, design, service and cleanliness were just perfect. Of course you Always find a hair to split, if want, but it is not worth loosing a word. If you are looking for a five star hotel in Salzburg, then it must be the Sacher: There Is No Alternative!

I stayed here with my partner in the first week of March and had an excellent time. We had arrived during the off season and during a period of renovation for the hotel so we were worried about whether the service would be slower but it was not at all. The bellman met us at our cab and quickly brought our bags inside. Check-in was very easy and efficient and all of the staff were incredibly kind. As we arrived the Coronavirus had started to become an issue in Italy and Europe but the hotel was taking great care to keep the rooms and public areas clean for guests. Our room was on the second floor and faced the river. It had an absolutely fantastic view and the rooms furnishings and amenities were the epitome of luxury. Throughout our stay the staff kept the refreshments stocked, the trash bins empty, and the room spotless. We ordered room services a number of time and the orders were filled within the half hour every time. Staff always seemed eager to ensure that we were comfortable, happy, and had all our needs met. I cannot stress enough the high quality and attentiveness of the staff in this hotel. Their attention to detail and efficiency left me extremely impressed. During our stay we had the privilege of dining at the Sacher Grill and at the Breakfast Buffet. The Breakfast Buffet is an absolute must at least once during your stay. The food is delicious and the amount of choices are incredible. Finally, the location of the hotel in proximity to the main attractions of the city is perfect. It is less than a 10 minute walk to the main shopping district in the old town, 5 minutes from the Mirabel Gardens, and less than 15 minutes to the base of the Fortress. It is easy to tour the entire city by walking from the hotel. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a high level of quality service during their stay but without needing to worry about snobby attitudes. The staff were some of the most helpful I've ever encountered in the hotel industry and I will certainly be staying here again if I am to return to Salzburg.
