Bankhammer Helga
Ranked #38 of 63 Salzburg B&B and Inns
Reviewed July 24, 2012

I haven't stayed here since last August, but I feel compelled to write a review about our wonderful accommodations. First of all, staying at a farm house is a really fun experience, you can see cows and draft horses just behind the house! The rooms are big, and their didn't seem to be anyone else staying their while we were there, so absolutely no noise and total privacy, except for Helga and her daughter occasionally checking on us.
But what I can't compliment enough was how helpful and kind Helga was to us! What an absolutely sweet lady! We had many great conversations with her, and you could tell she enjoyed us staying with her. Also we were supposed to leave early in the morning our last day, and informed her that we wouldn't be needing breakfast, but I woke up sick that day so we missed our train. Not only did she tell my sister exactly what medicine to get me down at the pharmacy to make me feel better, but she immediately prepared my sister and I a large breakfast and made FOR SURE that I was feeling completely better before we departed. I wish I could thank her more, because it was so helpful and without her I would have been sick for much longer.
So overall great experience! Would recommend to anyone

We emailed Helga a couple of weeks before and confirmed our reservation, even giving her a credit card number. We explained that we have a baby and that we would be driving to Salzbourg, and it was apparently all ok.

On the day that we were to reach, we took a few wrong turns with the car, which set us back about an hour, and there was a long stretch of construction from Vienna to Salzbourg, which set us back another hour. So, like good guests we called ahead and informed, and guess what?
She informed us that no, she has a social commitment, and our booking is now cancelled. She will only come back at 10 or so in the night. We asked if we could pick up the keys from where she was, or a friend or a neighbour, but that was not fine. We asked her to call us when she gets back, but she says airily that we'll find another place, and she wont hold us to our reservation, and that SHE understands that we dont want to stay at her place anymore!!! After that, no help/information etc. She does not even pick up the phone!

I dont know how good the place was, but best avoided if the proprietor obviously does not care about reservations!

Staying with Helga was one of the best experiences we had on our three-week trip to Europe in the summer of 2010. We stayed three nights, in a lovely, spacious room, with our own private bathroom just down the hall. The beds were comfortable, plenty of room to spread out, and the bathroom was huge! We had a bit of trouble finding the place, but discovered it was on a very accessible street that led us easily to the center of Salzburg for sight-seeing. Helga prepared a lovely, filling breakfast each morning and had a substantial amount of tourist information available. We arrived late in the evening, and Helga recommended a guesthouse just up the road for dinner. We had the best cream of potato soup in our lives that night, and went back the next night just to have the soup again!

This guesthouse is on a busy street, but cars are going slow and the traffic isn't really a problem. I am a light sleeper, and it didn't keep me awake! The house is quaint and cozy, with rag rugs on the stairs and in the hallway, giving it a real farmhouse feel. The morning we left we asked to look around the farm, and we met the horses, cows and took a peek into the barns and at the machinery (I grew up on a farm).

Helga was so personable and accommodating that it truly felt like we were staying with family. We would not hesitate to stay with her again and felt that the room was a great value and a superb location. Breakfast was included in the room price.
