“Great rooms”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2012

We stayed at the Achat. For three nights in May. The room we had was spacious and the bathroom was one of the largest we have used during the past 6 weeks of travel. The hotel was very clean and quiet and the staff were courteous and professional.

good hotel within easy reach of the station and the old town just across the river.
big room with a huge shower and separate toilet. nice furniture, kettle, safe and a fridge.
breakfast was a good range of things to eat and drink.
An excellent place that might be a bit off putting on the outside.

We (with husband and 3yr old toddler) stayed at ACHAT Plaza Zum Hirschen recently in April. Location of the hotel was excellent - very near the Central train station, and easy access by buses to the main attractions within Salzburg city, and also Hellbrunn Palace (which is abt 35min by bus). Since we came and left Salzburg via train (with all our luggages, stroller and toddler paraphernalia), location near the train station was a big plus point for us. Although it is near the train station, is on a quiet street so no worries on street noise in the evenings (our room was facing the street). Mirabell Garden and the music halls are also within walking distance (10-15mins). For travellers coming by car, there's plenty of parking space on the hotel grounds.

There's a supermarket (Billa) at a small shopping mall (with small shops, C&A, bakery, etc) just across the hotel. There's also a small convenient store at the petrol station next door which closes much later than the supermarket, just in case. Nearby, there are small cafes, eateries and a bookstore (mostly German books). The bookstore had a small sale on Die Spiegelburg children's stationery when we were there, which was a treat for our girl.

The hotel itself is very clean and decor was very 'festive' - looks like Christmas all year round at ACHAT. Staff speaks English and very helpful with our questions regarding music activities with the toddler in Salzburg.

We reserved the triple room (double bed + single bed) which was a nice size for us, with spacious bathroom (2 sinks counter, bathtub). Rooms are clean and has the amenities a family need (electric kettle, fridge, tv, coffee, tea, pants press, etc) and strong WiFi connection (free, get password from reception). Room rates was also reasonable, with options of breakfast at additional cost.

All in all, highly recommended for stay with the family in Salzburg.

The ACHAT Plaza Zum Hirschen is about 5 minutes walk from the train station and about 15 minutes from old Salzburg. There are bus stops near the hotel that can speed you in either direction, but with Mirabell Gardens and the walk along the river who wants a bus? The room was clean and the wireless Internet free. Parking was also plentiful, private and free behind the hotel.

Very nice four star hotel, located near the train station which was convenient for us. You have to walk about 10 minutes (or take the bus) to reach the old town, it's not far, just across the river.
Beautiful and big room with classic furniture, safe box, wifi, coffee and tea making facilities, double door, huge bathroom with bathtub (no bidet though), very good beds.
The only thing I didn't like was that the tiles on the toilet area were not clean.
Breakfast and service were good. The breakfast room was beautiful, very nicely decorated.
I can't say much more because we only spent one night there.
We slept very well, not a noise was heard.

My family and I (4 adults, 3 children) stayed in two rooms here in April 2012. Hotel is a bit outside of the main district of Salzburg, but it was very reasonably priced and had plenty of parking. Rooms were clean and nice. There were double windows to keep out street noise, which we appreciated. Breakfast was available for 12 Euro (adults) or 6 Euro (children). The staff was friendly and helpful confirming reservations for the Sound of Music Tour and Mozart Dinner. As far as location, it is about a 15 minute walk to the Salzach river. There are also bus lines that go that way. We walked a few times (you go right past the Mirabell Gardens) and also took a vehicle to a parking garage close to the Old Town (Altstadt garage B). Overall, a very pleasant stay!

Good location - ten minutes from Mirabell Palace on foot. Central without being right in the old town. Good rooms-bedroom very slightly dated decor but very modern, plush shower room. Has in room tea and coffee making facilities-unusual in Austria. Very nice wooden and folk-furnished breakfast room. Room facing the back were quiet-might be noisier at the front (main road)

Room Tip: Quieter facing away from the main road
