If you can get your head around the psychedelic carpeting and the neon green lobby fabric, there is quite a decent hotel to be found. The temperature is also near- boiling but there are a number of plusses: The hotel is in a quiet area unlike some, so no road noise There is in-room tea!!! A rare commodity in Austria... More

The price was reasonable however, the desk clerk at checkout double charged my credit card. I noticed it directly and told him however, he assured me he hadn't. I... More

Hotel Scherer is very convenient to the train station, which is what we wanted. That means it's also convenient to all sorts of buses into town, or, if you prefer, it's not a bad walk. There's also a shopping mall next to the train station. There are stores and a great coffee and sandwich shop (Coffee Fellows) in the mall... More

This hotel is convenient to train station which we always like when Eurailing it - you an get to your room quickly. Dad and I had single rooms which were very clean, super comfortable and a great value. You can walk to town in 10 minutes. Unassuming street but if you're there to get out and about, it's great.

Recently stayed in this hotel for 3 nights and I was not impressed with it. Hotel itself is very dated and shabby. The twin room we were in was very small and old and shabby with very little storage space. The second bed in the room was a desk and two seats turned into a bed and not very comfortable,... More

4 minutes from Salzburg central station, walking distance from city center and all main attractions, very helpful and nice people at the reception. But: a hotel of this category should provide its guests with FREE wifi. Something to improve
