I stayed at the Mercure shortly before Christmas. The lobby was decorated beautifully. The hotel was full and yet the staff was very pleasant and made the experience enjoyable. Both mornings we had a fantastic brunch in the restaurant with many types of breads, fruits, lox, juices, etc - it was a great way to start the day.

I definitely recommend the Mercure if you need to be in Salzburg; it was within walking distance of many locations and yet was quiet and peaceful inside.

The hotel had a very pleasant lobby. The room (room 115) was a nice room size and very clean.
2 single beds pushed together to make a double. In-room safe, mini-bar.
Bathrooms have shower/bath. Quite high to get into. Toilets are also placed on a difficult angle. Good shower pressure.
Receptionist was very helpful. She gave us a map and circled the best parts of Salzburg, explained the bus system to get to the city centre and even sold us tickets as a discounted rate.
Free parking was available or $11 a day for undercover parking.
It was about a 5 minute bus ride to the city, or a 15 minute walk.
Free internet available in the lobby.
Buffet breakfast available for €15, which was absolutely lovely. Everything you could imagine.
Free shoe shine machine also in hotel corridor.
Seems like a safe area, as is most of Austria.

The hotel is about a 15-20 min walk from the old town centre in a quite part of town. There is parking at the hotel so it is useful for travellers with cars. It is also close to the hofbahnhof (about 10-15mins walk away). While the hotel is a little far from the old town, Salzburg is a small city and there are not many affordable hotels closer to the old town.

As expected from a chain hotel, the rooms are clean and a good size.

Thank you for your comments on your stay.
Indeed Salzburg is small - still 15 walkingminutes can be alot for somebody being tired sightseeing! Apart from taking a cab to go back to our hotel (€ 7-€ 10) you also can take bus 21 stop "Paracelsusstraße" - You can get daytickets at our hotelreception!
Looking forward welcoming you again in the City of Mozart
