“poor sleeping conditions”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2014

While the hotel had some charm the reason you stay in a hotel is to get a good nights sleep. There was no air conditioning and the room was quite stuffy. We requested a fan which they never delivered. Due to the warm room we had to sleep with the windows wide open and could hear the people noisily returning from the bars at all hours of the night (even on weekdays) and the early morning garbage trucks. Our room faced another building across a narrow road. so there was no privacy with the window opened. On the positive side the location is good and the rates are reasonable.

Room Tip: choose a room facing the river.

After a few days in a somewhat cramped hotel room, we were overwhelmed by our accommodation in Salzburg. We had an enormous bedroom with a bed to match - plus another spacious sitting room with a river view, & a very good bathroom. It all looked very classy & comfortable; a real 5 star room. Not inexpensive though - & we avoided the €26 breakfast as we were not that hungry & that really was far too much. Still, the staff were excellent & pleasant, helped us with luggage & directions, & a we had a first rate meal in the restaurant with a view of the /river. The location is a real asset; you walk out the front door & you are right in the old town, just a short distance to the cathedral & the shops.

Room Tip: You arrive at the riverside entrance & it is not that easy to spot - especially if you are looki...

Stayed in this hotel for three nights in June 2014. Taxi from airport was €14 so worth getting one.
It's a very old hotel, right in the middle of the old town, and well positioned for sight seeing.
We had a standard room which was adequate for our stay. Comfortable beds and pillows, full size bathroom, bidet, shower and 2 sinks. Separate toilet which is unusual but much better. Had a mini-bar and t.v. Didn't eat in the hotel so cannot comment in the food. Staff very helpful - we had a quick check-in and nothing was too much trouble.
It was very hot when we stayed, so a bit of air-con would have been nice also no tea/coffee making facility in standard rooms, only in the suites.
Overall a nice hotel which I would recommend for its location.

Room Tip: We were in 408 overlooking the back streets.

Where to start, we booked here as a treat for an anniversary thinking the location and hotel would be romantic. We were upgraded to a suite which was massive, but after the excitment wore off we were overcome with disapointment. The first of which, a dirty ashtray in the bathroom full with old smelly cigs! We arrived back lateish (11pm) after a lovely meal out, but discovered when we got into bed that they were two singles pushed together on silly plastic casters which span them across the room each time moved or rolled over. My partner plugged his phone into the socket in the wall to then be given a shock as the casing and the whole socket itself fell out of the wall! In the light of the morning, after not sleeping due to a booming night club underneath the hotel (does not state this when you book!!) we noticed a massive coffee stain down the wall which was covered up by a tall lamp shade. It was all just a bit shoddy, noisy and we left with a bitter taste which was a real shame as the location is by far the highlight of this hotel!

This hotel is supposed to be 5 stars yet not even a bottle of water or anything free in the room. I've stayed in 3 or 4 star and you'd get a bottle of water. There was a minibar but you had to pay for everything in it. Breakfast was €26 per person everyday which was outrageous. Room was quite small and run down. The shower was in the bath and was missing some panels which meant water would spray onto the floor when you were showering. The best thing about this hotel is the location, you are right in the old town and beside everything you need and want to do in this area. I don't think I'd recommend it though as for a 5-star it was a big let down.

Room Tip: We got a room facing away from the street as this is where most noise comes from. I'd recommend...

To begin with my friend and I checked in to this hotel in the old town of Salzburg which is very picturesque. We were given a complimentary upgrade to a very large lovely room with a view which was a welcomed surprise. During our stay the staff were very helpful and friendly and the location of the hotel is perfect.You can walk to most attractions easily from here. However several days before we checked out my credit card was charged with the full amount of our week long stay. We told the staff upon arrival we would be splitting the cost and paying by two separate cards which they said was fine. I did not find out about the charge until I returned home. I guess they realized their mistake as the very next day the charge was reversed. However no one said anything at the time and because of bank fees and exchange rates their mistake cost me slightly over $100.00 and I am not impressed! Obviously this establishment cannot be trusted so be very wary of this hotel. I had originally given my credit card details over the web on booking.com to make the booking. These details are what the hotel used as I did not give them that card upon arrival.

A unique pearl of Austrian hotels. In the heart of Salzburg, the Hotel Altstadt Radisson Blu with its incredible history tracing back to 1377. A perfect location and within walking distance of all that Salzburg has to offer the discerning traveler ... And Shopaholic.
