The critical reviews of this hotel that we read beforehand did not do it real justice. We arrived by car with some trepidation because of that. However our one day stay was really quite fine. This is not a typical hotel so don't expect it to be. It is truly the original house after which the movie was based on and is owned by a brotherhood of the Catholic Church who bought it after the war. It is leased and managed as a hotel by a separate company. The actual building is the most interesting part of your stay and there is a wide variety of rooms and therefore prices and potential experience. There is no actual reception after 7pm, so if you like that courtesy don't arrive after that. The staff are typical business like friendly but very straightforward Austrians. Our room was the Trapp Family suite ground floor right next to the main entrance and the main living room. Huge rooms, clean, plain and simple with scattered memorial pictures etc of the family. No screens. No A/C. Typical steam/water heating radiators. Big comfortable bed in one room, hideabed in the other room. When we entered there was an obvious odor of a newborn baby diaper. Eventually the staff found one that had slipped inside the hideabed springs and they were profoundly embarrassed and very professional about the incident. We did not sample the morning breakfast since we felt we might achieve a better option on the highway considering the price. I would recommend that the hotel change its rates and just include the breakfast with some suites.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Villa Trapp was the residence of the world-famous Von Trapp family, whose life in Salzburg entered history as "The Sound of Music", the most popular musical of all times. The villa is maintained in the style of this period, including 2 luxurious, 60 m² suites. They are exclusively furnished. In the past the Villa Trapp was not accessible to the public. Now you can sleep in the family's rooms and walk on their paths through the villa and the park. This stately building enjoys a quiet location close to the centre of Salzburg, surrounded by the city's largest private park. ... more less
