“No maintenance men on duty...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2014

While this hotel seems to be undergoing improvements it is quite lacking in helpfulness. Our a/c would not work and Constance at the front desk did not care to assist us other than to state that only smoking rooms were available if we wished to change rooms. Further, no maintenance men were on duty. She said she tried to call one in but could not reach someone. We asked to be moved to another hotel as a smoking room was unacceptable. She said there were no other hotels in the area. Later in the room we found a card from Mercure Corp stating they have a 'satisfaction guarantee policy'. We would like to know what that guarantee stands for as they did not try to accommodate us at all.

Room Tip: Check first to be sure the a/c is in working order. Also the toilet is in working order.

Dear 18LIndaH18,

thank you sharing your feedback regarding your stay in the Mercure Salzburg City. We apologize the inconvenience that we may have caused. Due to a congress during your stay and a fully booked house status in both Mercure Hotels we had not been able to offer you a room move into a non smoking room or another room in the Mercure Salzburg Central. Our front desk manager told me that a technicians solved the problem with AC in your room on the same day in order to make your stay most comfortable with us.

We hope Accor can welcome you one time soon in one of their properties.

Best regards,

Thomas Baliamis, General Manager Mercure Hotels Salzburg

We picked the Mercure Salzburg City because of its location.. our iPad data plan had died in Austria, but memory and great road signs guided us to this property. Room was very pleasant.. Breakfast was complete by any NA standards, with great variety and freshness. Much better than other Mercure properties we have used in France.. BIONot. Staff was very pleasant, both on the desk and in the breakfast restaurant.

We stated two nights and chose on the basis it was close to the rail station and the brand promised predictable comfort. While the hotel was undergoing renovation this did not seriously impact us. The newly renovated room we were upgraded to was tastefully furnished and well equipped. Front desk staff were very helpful. The neighborhood was quiet and barely 20 minutes from Mirabell Gardens and Palace.

Stayed here in December of 2013 for a few days just before Christmas. While convenient for getting around Salzburg and close to the train station and markets, the three nights we spent here were miserable because of one thing: the beds were so uncomfortable! Our not at all fussy 16 year old took to sleeping on the floor in the end. The poor sleep quality experienced here severely impacted on our stay and we were left very disappointed. Given the positive reviews of this hotel, which resulted in selecting it in the first place, we were surprised at just how bad it was - maybe we just got unlucky.

Based on this experience, we would not recommend and will not be back.

At Mercure, we strive to provide a superior service experience for every customer; therefore your feedback is very important to us. Please rest assured that we have taking the appropriate measures - the Mercure Salzburg City has new superior rooms in the meantime.
