We had a great stay near Salzburg and loved the warm staff and good restaurant at Hotel Gerl. The kids loved the pool and we wished to have been there in summer to enjoy the outdoor pool. Family room was spacious and comfortable except for a hearing challenge due to warm Days and cool nights outside making our room too... More

Chose Hotel Gerl for several times when traveling in the area. Pool side room is always our favourite. Enjoying sauna in the evening is always a good choice both in summer and winter. Cosy breakfast in a lovely decorated room. Pool itself and the green outdoors are so refreshing and relaxing. Love everything about this hotel. Well done!

We stayed here for one night traveling home from Croatia. It was a very nice hotel, beautiful decorated and stylish. The hotel offered plenty of parking spaces. The room (and bathroom) was spacious and clean with a large balcony. The only thing that bothered us was the lack of pillowcases on the pillows! Maybe an oversight by housekeeping or standard?...

This hotel was very nice. Room was large and just renovated. All of the furnitures were very nice and they had a nice wooden style. People were very polite and friendly. Swimming pools were good. Wi- fi did not work in another room. You need a car when using this hotel. Breakfast was very good.

This hotel is perfectly located for an early flight from Salzburg airport or a beautiful hotel to check into in arrival. It's not in Salzburg buts its only a few kms up the road.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are a family-run hotel which attaches particular importance to getting the price and service right, as well as providing individuality and comfort. Our house offers you that bit more in terms of service, furnishing and an appealing environment in a country house style. You will find spare and simple yet comfortable single and double rooms, as well as generously-proportioned superior rooms and family suites which have a character consistent with a longer stay. Another feature distinguishing our hotel is its ideal location: in green surroundings with a marvellous panoramic view and yet immediately close to the city centre. Thanks to the excellent road links, the trade fair centre, MGC- centre, the airport, the outlet centre, the stadium or Hangar 7 can all be reached in next to no time. ... more   less
