“Great value for your money!”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

We are a middle-aged couple from Sweden, who travels fairly frequently both in private and business. We stayed at Achat for 9 nights during March 2013 and have to say it was a very nice experience! We signed up for a pre-paid offer where every 4th night was for free, and to our suprise we where upgraded to an "superior room" when we check in!

The hotel has a typical "Austrian touch" to it with robust wood details etc. It's not a new hotel but everything is clean and functional. We got a corner room on 3rd floor overlooking the backside/parkingspace, very quiet and with a nice bathroom with a bathtub.
AND - A old-fashion FM-radion integrated to the wall both in the room aswell as in the bathroom, with a stainless-steel front and wooden frame around it - You got to love that!!

Free WiFi in the room (and good speed too, streaming video was no problem), parking was 6€/night and breakfast 12€/person. The breakfast was nice with plenty of options but 12€ is a bit too much in our option. There's an Subway 50m cross the street. The hotel is located very close to the Hbf/train station - 285 meters to be exact according to our TomTom-app.
It takes about 10 minutes to walk to the core of Salzburg old town. The neighborhood of the hotel is ok, we felt safe even walking home in the night (well, all Salzburg feels safe so ...) - however it's not a "cosy" area.

We would normally give a hotel like Archat 3 stars but have too add one star to Archat due to the price, cleaness and location, thus 4 out of 5 stars!

Archat is for sure good value for your money!

(To consider when reading our review - We are not the kind of people that spend much time in the hotel when we travel, so the hotel standard is't all that important too us.)

Only had an overnight stay in this hotel. We were very impressed with the double doors to our room, blocking any hallway noise. The room was spacious & clean & the bed very comfortable. The location was close to the old town & very convenient to the train station. Restaurant downstairs was good with casual & comfortable dining at a reasonable price. The hotel has elevators, which was very handy as we travelled with too much luggage! Would definitely stay here again.

There were 5 of us, so when I contacted the hotel, iI was offered the suite. It was actually two separate bedrooms, each with their own bathrooms and connecting door - pleasantly surprised by the size. Clean, and decorated in good taste. However, it was hard to shower without getting the whole floor wet. Great breakfast buffet, but a bit overpriced for and extra 12 Euro. It is about a 15 min walk to the old town, and only about 5 min to the train station. Overall a good experience.

This hotel has its pros and cons.
Pros: The rooms are spacious and quiet. The sauna area is nice. The location is practical between the railway station and the old town with easy access to both.
Cons: The quality of the food at the restaurant is very low. I got my jacket potato cold and completely undercooked and the ribs were very salty. My companion's Wiener Schnitzel was OK but the potatoes were again undercooked. The service was very slow.
The quality and competence of the staff was variable. We booked a tour with Panorama Tours on Friday evening for Saturday afternoon with the elderly man at the reception. We turned up at the reception at 13.40 as advised only to find out that he had not contacted Panorama Tours at all to book our place. This time there was a young man at the reception who was helpful and competent. He contacted Panorama Tours straight away and made sure we got booked for a tour on Sunday morning instead.
We were quite lucky that we had the "extra" day so that we could use the tour, especially as we had already paid for it.
Would I stay there again? Maybe. It was not totally bad but I will definitely check for alternatives the next time I go to Salzburg.

Stayed in the hotel for a long weekend in feb. paid 80 euros for a double room without breakfast (sachet is ten minutes walk away). Very tidy and neat room, convenient though not romantic, friendly staff. 10 to 15 minutes walk from the centre, direct surroundings not exciting, but in easy walk distance from the station. Would definitely stay over again, less for the atmosphere, but the value for money is very good.
