The Austrobel hotel is in a good location facing the Mirabell Palace and Gardens, its in easy walking distance into the old town and the main attractions. The room was average and a little gloomy for me. It was very warm at night but were unable to open the windows as it was quite noisy outside.There was a mini bar in the room but couldn't find any prices. Although we only had water and soft drinks out of the bar, It was not refilled throughout our stay, we did five days. There is no tea or coffee facilities in the room so sometimes the water would have been nice. There is a small lounge in the main reception where you can get tea, coffee or a soft drink. The machine wasn't working on several occasions.The reception staff were very friendly and helpful. Sorry about the hotel but I paid a bit more for a four star hotel hoping for a bit more.There isn't even a bar where you can go and relax in after a long day walking round the city.
However Salzburg itself is a lovely city with lots to see. You can do alot on foot. We went in Dec and the Christmas markets were fantanstic. It snowed whilst we were there, this made it extra special. Take lots of warm clothes if you go at this time of year. A trip to the lakes and mountains is well worth it, fabulous. We went to the information centre and booked a trip to Wolfgang including a boat trip, visited three places on this trip it was lovely. Also recommend the Fort, We spent a full day there.The walk isn't for the unfit!
We stayed five days in Salzberg, however I think it was one day too many as we had managed to see most of it by that time.
A tip if you are staying in Salzburg over a Friday and Saturday, book a table if you want to go out. Restaurants are all booked up and you cant get in anywhere if you haven't booked.
