MEININGER Hotel Salzburg City Center
Ranked #31 of 132 Hotels in Salzburg
Reviewed June 20, 2013

We had a family room with 1 double bed and 4 single beds in a bunk bed style. Nice set up with plenty of space. There was a separate shower/sink and toilet room which allowed for all of us get ready at the same time. Down side is that the floors were dirty and there was dirt build up around the corner of the rooms. There was also hair in the shower. The front desk was always super busy so it was hard to get information or directions but a little patience seemed to pay off. They recommended the Urban Keller restaurant down the street which was really good food and close. The waiter was super busy and forgot to give us our credit card back. The down side to that was they were closed the next day and didn't open til 3pm the following day...so we had to wait to check to see if they had our card. Very nerve racking! To get WiFi you had to pick up a ticket at the front desk. One ticket per device and only good for 6 hours. Basically, with todays information age we had 4 different ticket each time we wanted access. There is a McDonalds down the street. They had breakfast there but we brought our own food. They have a kitchen area that you can heat up food if you would like. The hotel isn't close to old town and you will have to tae a bus or drive. There is a parking garage but we had a Thule storage on our vehicle and were able to park out front which was nice. The elevator was broke the 1st few days and climbing 4 floors was rough with a 2 year old but once they fixed it..life was easy then. :)

Room Tip: Beds were to hard for my comfort level.

Meininger Hotel Salzburg City Center is not quite in the city centre. It is a couple of minutes away by bus. But the bus stop is right outside the hotel so thats quite convenient. Bus # 2,4,10 give easy access to the city centre. We had a room on the top floor. It was quite nice and clean with a balcony. Had lovely views of the hills from the room. Amazing value for money. So thats the best part. The wifi was free and the network quite good. We did not opt for the breakfast so can not comment. We stayed here in May2013 for 4 nights and the stay was very comfortable. The staff is quite friendly. Couple of supermarkets are very close by. As a first time tourist I will recommend buying the salzburg card as that gives access to most of the sights for free and also free transportation within the city.

Room Tip: try and get the room on the top floor. Has lovely views

We stayed only for a night. The rooms were comfortable room. There is a self service kitchen available which we really liked. There is ample parking available. The hotel is slightly away from the downtown, so we had to walk quite a bit but on the good side, we got to see the beautiful city of Salzburg at night. Great stay overall!

I stayed here for 2 nights. If you're happy to pay for public transport the location is ok, it takes 10 mins on a bus to the main part of the old town otherwise it's a 25 min walk. I booked a small room expecting to have a room of up to 4 but there was 5 in the room. Kitchen was small but functional, not practicable to have more than one person cooking in there. The staff were very helpful.

If I went to Salzburg again I'd stay somewhere closer to the old town, I only booked this place because I was happy with previous Meininger experiences.

We found the hotel very clean beds good daily service in the rooms clean towels daily if required we have spent nine nights and have had a brilliant holiday we would like also to say that all the staff were very good but two were outstanding and they Jana & Emir nothing was too much for them they helped in every way asked of them they really made us feel welcome and upon observation they were the same with all other guest this is a holiday for people on a budget but you get excellence service for money they do a good continental breakfast you can eat as much as you require there is also washing machine for your use and tumble dryer you can cook your own meals in a kitchen which is fully equipped if you don't want to go out for meals there is a shopping arcade next door with all kinds of shops from shoe shops to supermarket across the road is Aldi just a few minuet walk there is Macdonalds and a Spar and Lidle I have only given 4stars because while we were here they had floods and the lifts were out of order and we found the stairs a bit too much for us but overall a great holiday would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to visit Salzburg

Great place to stay if you are on a budget. Very clean and beds are comfy. 10 minute bus ride to the city centre or the train station and the bus stops are just near the hotel. Had the buffet breakfast one morning and was good value. Definitely recommend going to the restaurant Brahaus Furbergs (2 minutes walk from the hotel) while you are there! Only downside was our air conditioning played up. Laundry and kitchen facilities available. Added bonus - they play The Sound of Music every Wednesday and Sunday nights in the common room!

Location is slightly outside city. However, very easily accessible by bus 2,4,10 that go through or very near to central of attraction. Walking is possible too, but we took 24 hr tix hence bus all the way. There are many shops around and Hofer / Aldi very close by.
Check in is a breeze, we asked for any room with the best view and given top floor facing the mountain, with balcony. Room is very clean, immaculate, modern, cute. Provide enough hooks, cupboard with hangers, ample space, a sofa - perhaps a sofabed, tv. Ensuite toilet is clean, complete with handwash, shower creme, hairdryer...
There is a kitchen at the ground floor that i used everyday to cook our meal. It is complete with electric stove, cooker, fridge, kwettle, sink, washing machine, dryer, pans, cutleries, cockeries.
The staff are available 24 hrs, very helpful and courteous.
Very cheap for what we get. Kinda living at 5 stars hotel with view of alps while relaxing.
Won't hesitate to cvome again
