We enjoyed a four night stay at this rather special hotel and took in the Salzburg Christmas markets. We didn't see a cloud for the duration of our visit and loved the crisp but cold air and this beautiful city. One negative though which took us a bit by surprise was the amount of begging in the streets. Surely a city this apparently affluent should be able to look after the welfare of all it's inhabitants better than it does.
Our upgraded room was charming with interesting antique furniture alongside every modern convenience. And the bed was extremely comfortable. The hotel staff spoke excellent English and provided a friendly yet efficient service, helping us with tours, taxis etc.
Without doubt the hotel location is a major asset being right on the famous pedestrian shopping street and this did not cause any problems whatsoever with noise inside the hotel. Like other reviewers we found the breakfast expensive and resolved to eat out on some mornings. The resolve didn't work however as the convenience outweighed the walk in the cold air outside.
Salzburg is a beautiful, magical city and the Christmas markets are spectacular. The Goldener Hirsch is the perfect location to take it all in.
