“Great Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2013

Historic property in the city center. Floor plan is a little quirky in a fun way. Rooms are spacious but could use a few more lights. Parking is a problem and valet is $$$. Friendly and attentive staff. Close to several excellent restaurants.

Very satisfied with the service offered plus the hotel is in the best location ever. Moreover we were given a free room upgrade. As others have said there was some noise from the pub beneath the hotel in the early mornings but it did not bother me much. My only little mishap was that wifi was not working from the room unless you take the mobile out of the window which was not ideal in the cold weather. Also asked staff at reception some info about buses and although they were very friendly they gave us the wrong info. But overall very satisfied and will return.

Very conveniently located in the Old Town of Salzburg this hotel is at the upper end of the scale in terms of quality but also price. It is part of a large hotel chain but at the same time it is located in an historic building which retains some of its original charm. Staff was very friendly and helpful and the location can't be beaten on the river and only steps away from the shopping and sights like the Mozart birth house or the Cathedral.
The room was very luxurious, only the access was a bit inconvenient as you couldn't get to it with a lift but had to go up and down several flights of stairs - this is probably due to the fact that this is a historic building and the hotel spreads over several adjacent ones. There maybe other rooms that are fully accessible. A cot was not in the room even though pre-booked but very quickly put up when mentioned.
The in-house restaurant served a very good modern menu and is beautifully located overlooking the river. Breakfast was excellent and dietary requirements were dealt with efficiently. There is no parking nearby due to its location but the hotel has a parking service (with a charge) that worked well at arrival and departure. Overall an enjoyable and recommended stay.

In envy all the reviewers who commented on how quiet the hotel was during their stay. Maybe it was because we stayed on a Saturday night but the street noise under our window from the neighboring bars until 4:00 am was unbearable. The hotel is perfectly situated in Old Town and was in a beautiful old building. Our standard room was excellent with interesting hidden nooks for a writing desk, minibar, closets and a huge bathroom that sat outside a good sized corridor from the front door. The staff were friendly enough and I wouldn't hesitate staying there again if it weren't for the fact that none of my family got any sleep that night. We stayed in room 304 facing the river and there were people perched on the sidewalk that ran along the river who yelled and carried on until the bars closed at 4:00 am. We stayed in October so the windows were closed and if there were some kind of fan in the room that might have provided some white noise to block out the revelers it could have been manageable. I specifically asked for a quiet room away from street noise when I made my booking but was told the hotel was near capacity when I received my room. As much as I loved everything else about the hotel I'm going to find somewhere else to stay next time I'm in Salzburg because I cannot afford another sleepless night.

Room Tip: Maybe try the rooms that face the castle? River rooms will certainly be on the same side as the bar...

My wife and I have a 3-week commitment in Vienna and sought a weekend get-away just to see the sights. We decided to take the train to Salzburg -about a 3-hour journey through exquisite countryside- and booked a room for the night at this hotel. No disappointments! Perfectly located fronting the Salzach River, which flows through the heart of Salzburg, and with the old city (Altstadt) immediately out the rear guest entrance we had the best of both worlds.

After an easy taxi ride from the main train station we were warmly received and upgraded upon arrival, shown to our spacious suite and felt perfectly content. Our room overlooked the river with ample windows and included an entry salon, spacious suite and perfectly comfortable bath.

Clean, friendly, gracious and well-located... what more can one want? We walked the old district while enjoying the charms of a wonderfully historic city with fine shopping, many dining options and with the accessible fortress Hohensalzburg overlooking all.

Our reservation also included breakfast in the fine European tradition, buffet-style with many selections including eggs, sausage, toast and rolls, fruit, juice and more. Would we stay here again? Yes.

Room Tip: Can't go wrong... either facing the river or the old section, your preference.

Nice hotel, good location right on the edge of the old town (hence the name) and only a short walk from the nearest bus stop. I would however advise walking via the old town rather than the road by the river and the former is nice and pretty whereas the latter is surprisingly not - thanks to the neighbouring pubs/clubs!

It's an old converted building so it has quite a quirky layout - some rooms are up some steps, across a courtyard, down some steps, up a lift, up some more steps, around a corner, up a flight of stairs and then round one final corner...others I presume are closer to reception!
The room is nicely furnished, with pleasant gold leaf fixtures, antique furniture, a nice modern TV and separate loo and bathroom. There were nice views out over the river too.

The bed was comfy, but the double was in fact two single beds put together. I suspect you can't physically get a double bed up to the room!

The staff are nice and friendly; they checked me in despite not finding my reservation in their system and someone helped with my bag. Breakfast staff equally nice; as was the food.

Only annoyance was the lack of working wifi in the room - it was there but the staff confirmed it wasn't working.

Overall a very pleasant stay.

Room Tip: Wifi didn't work in the higher rooms but was supposed to be a temporary problem. A river side ro...

This hotel is an old upper-middle class home located in the middle of historic Salzburg. You walk out the back door and you are right in the middle of the old town area. The room was quite modern and clean despite the fact that it is such an historic building. The staff was also extremely friendly and helpful. One thing that anyone staying here should keep in mind, though, is that there is no parking at the hotel but the website led us to parking in the lot connected to the hospital about 7 minutes away by foot for 20 euros a day. If you follow directions to the front door, the hotel is not well marked and there is only a small sign on the wall next to a flight of stairs that says "Radisson Blu Hotel." You then have to walk up the stairs to get to the lobby which isn't the most convenient if you have bags. If, however, you go to the back side of the building, the lobby is on the ground floor. After arriving, we never used the "front door" which faces the river, again. Our stay at this hotel was very comfortable and the location was perfect.
