Advent markets - where to stay?

I'm a solo traveler, arriving by train from Munich on Saturday morning, December 15, and flying home on an 18.30 flight on Sunday. This is the last stop on a whirlwind tour of holiday sights and sounds and tastes.

Which is the best area to stay in? Any hotel recommendations? I'm hoping to find somthing reasonable (clean, quiet) for under €100.

If this is a quick visit I agree you should stay in the Altstadt (old town). Salzburg is a very small city so you can easily get back to the train station quickly. A hotel that always gets good reviews is the Weisse Taube. Very close to everything but also in a quieter street. I don't know their rates. Goldener Ente, Hotel Elefant and Hotel am Dom are also in great positions. Maybe you should browse the hotels in the column to the left of this screen.

We are staying in the Weisse Taube this year for the Christmas Markets as it is so well recommended; but, it is not bad to stay in the newer part of town either. We have stayed at the Hotel Bergland twice and liked it. It is about 10 minutes walk from the Altstadt.


There are several nice hotels in the new part of town, Linzer Gasse vicinity, that are just a few minutes from the Altstadt. Prices in this newer part of town are sometimes a better bargain.

Hotel Reservation Service (HRS.com) has a map look-up feature to find hotels. You can see how close things are to the town center. The rating system is good and you can check out prices along with the location.

There is a new hotel just over the river from the old town called the Star Inn Hotel Salzburg Gablerbräu. ITS listed under the B&B / Inn section and is getting great reviews, is really well located and I think is in your price range. I haven't stayed there but am looking at it for a trip early next year. I stayed at another hotel in its area in 2010 and it was a quiet pedestrian area only about 5 minutes walk into the old town.
