MEININGER Hotel Salzburg City Center
Ranked #32 of 132 Hotels in Salzburg
Reviewed September 7, 2013

There were some changes to my travel plan and I booked this hotel online literally minutes before I board the train. It turned out to be a pleasant surprise that I decided to stay put for my next 2 days in Salzburg.

Location: It's a 10 min tram/bus ride to Zentrum (where the activities are) but I didn't find it an issue since there are 2 services (no. 4 & 10) that can take me there and it's not a long wait.

Service: Polite and helpful staff at the reception, Stefan and Julia (on 7sep 8pm shift) who speak good English. A lady who came to clean the guest kitchen periodically was absolutely lovely. Guests were supposed to do their own dishes but she offered to take mine to the main kitchen.

Amenities: Free wifi, guest kitchen with microwave, stove, washer & dryer

Cleanliness: It is by far the cleanest dorm I've ever stayed in. In fact, everything felt like a hotel except for the double-decked beds. The room was spick and span. Another perk was having the toilet separated from the bathroom. And the room was cleaned every day (which I don't get at other dorms).

Perk: A mall with supermarket, pharmacy, stationery shop, cafes, restaurant is just next door. Super convenient!

Hi!

Thank you for your comment! We glad to hear (read) that you liked our ho(s)tel so much. We are a mix between a hotel and a hostel, which means that we try to offer hotel quality at hostel prices - that is why you felt like in a hotel.
Maybe you could also try the other MEININGER hotels in the future!

My fiance and I reserved a private room w/ensuite bath w/another couple. We all found the value to be GREAT for the amenities we had. Although the location is not very close to the historic city center, it is easy to access historic Old Town w/a 10-minute walk. The staff are very helpful and available 24/7. It is very convenient to have the common areas and bar down stairs. Taxis frequently pass by if you would like to go farther than walking distance. This place was very affordable w/no hidden fees and very clean facilities. We will be back!

Room Tip: The 4-person ensuite has a queen and two bunks. The 5-person ensuite has a queen and four bunks. I...

We booked this hotel well in advance at a very affordable price. The hotel is 10 min by taxi from the train station. It is away from city centre in a quite locality . It is on the bus route from station to Mirabel gardens . The hotel offers free wi-fi and kichen facility for cooking your own food. The hotel staff is very helpful. The rooms are moderate sized with a bunk bed , which is not very comfortable.The hotel and is clean and modern

Room Tip: Many rooms are facing a small mountain

We booked at the last minute and wanted to make sure hotel was air conditioned. With that. there were only a few options. While clean, this hotel was inconvenient in every way
1. far from the center--not sure why they'd call it "city Center hotel", nor how one of the previous reviewers walked--it was a 15 minutes drive for us.
2. extremely uncomfortable beds. In our family room, bunk beds' mattresses were terrible, and even the big bed had a soft fall-through mattress you felt the bottom with
3. Breakfast options bad enough, that however tired we were--we walked away to look for something better. Hotel staff sent us to attached shopping mall, but really slim pickings there, as well
4. Hostel feel: teenagers filling public areas, so you can't really sit at the bar and relax, not any appeal for family/ mature visitors

We spent a couple of nights here and the hotel exceeded our expectations. The room featured some very tiny furniture and was somehow not very practical. Nevertheless the beds were comfortable, the receptionist was helpful and there was a nice hostel-like atmosphere in the lobby. Hotel is not close to the city center... and yet, it is appealing as it's on the other side of the Kapuzinerberg... which means that you can reach the old historical center by hiking. The trail takes 90 minutes and offers some splendid views and a nice restaurant on top of it. It also features a bunch of stairs, but then, if there's no pain there's no gain. And we feel that we had more gain than pain. So, in the end, we would return to Salzburg Meininger.

We stayed in this place as we booked at the last minute and there was not much else free. It was not good value for money compared to the other cities and hotels we had stayed on the same trip. It was on a nondescript ring-road and took 10 minutes by tram to get in (not too bad if you really want to visit), but you would not stay here for the location. It was very busy and appeared not to be sure if it was a hostel or a hotel. Kitchen facilities with washing machines (broken when we were there) were a good idea, but if I were a backpacker I would have stayed somewhere cheaper, We didn't take breakfast as it was still out on the counter when we checked in (after a 10 minute wait) in the late afternoon looking a bit dried up and forlorn. The good points were that the rooms very clean and the beds were comfortable. Aircon didn't work well though. Stay here if you must visit Salzburg - Munich is nicer!

Travelling with girlfriend (24-25ish ages) for two nights in Salzburg. Meininger was in a walking distance from the city centre and was equipped with garage (11€/day). Room was clean and there was superb view from the balcony, our room was located in 5th floor (top floor). No complaints about the room at all, beds were comfortable and bathroom/wc was clean and so on. We didn't spent much time in the room apart from sleeping so we didn't use tv for example etc.

Breakfast was cheap (5,90€/person) but good. Breakfast staff was not so good, old grumpy women whom was rushing everywhere and being angry towards even some customers (not us).

Staff was very friendly. Free Wi-Fi. Ok location.

Recommendations!

Room Tip: Top floor ! Views are great away from town.
