“A Great Suprise Hotel in Salzburg”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

We were not familiar with the Achat brand of hotels and was looking for an affordable and strategically placed hotel in Salzburg. The hotel is a little north of the old town but is very close to the train station. We did not walk to old town but from our understanding it was approximately a 15- 20 minute walk.The hotel provides parking in an adjacent lot (does cost money to park). The room we reserved was enormous and there was a very impressive bathroom also. The room amenities and size were excellent and met more than what we had expected. The room was very clean and comfortable. We had an excellent stay and would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for an affordable accommodation. The receptionist was just okay and helpful only when we asked. He did recommend a wonderful little restaurant about 10 minutes walk for dinner.

I thought this hotel was a good hotel and it was convenient to the train station as you could just do a short walk to it from the train with all your suitcases and not need to get a taxi. It does however take a bit of time to walk into the old town of Salzburg. I thought the staff were helpful, one guy even helped us research train information. Room was clean and comfortable. While it is not a glamorous hotel, it is perfectly fine and suited our travel requirements.

Stayed at the Achat Plaza hotel for 3 nights in May 2013 with my wife and 5 year old son. The hotel is conveniently located around 10-15 mins walk from most locations like the Old Town, the riverside area, railway station, etc.

Service was fair and we had no cause of complain. We got whatever information we needed as well as any extras we wanted! The rooms itself are a little funny - rather long than wide - but they are comfortable and well equipped with the basic amenities.

Room Tip: Try and get a room on a higher floor. The lower floor may have more noise since these are location o...

There were 3 in our party and we were quite pleased to have a room with completely separate bed areas. The bathroom was a little small but adequate. The location was great and the walk to the old town area was convenient. I'm surprised others complained about the 15 minute walk! Breakfast was very good. The staff was a bit aloof, but helpful.

Stayed 3 nights at the hotel, very close to the main train/bus station. Service was very good at reception where we got all the info we required on a range of things from transport to local events. The buffet breakfast was especially good with a wide variety of fresh foods. Room were comfortable, well equiped and very clean. Would recommend.

Reasonable price, that's all.... but if you are looking for service and especially if you have Daniel on the reception desk, I wish you good luck!!! He was very unpleasant and unwelcoming. I asked him how to get to the Marionette and he asked me back straight-faced: "Where exactly is it in the map?" Hello! If I know where it is exactly on the map, why would I even ask him? I asked him for train information to St. Gallen and he asked me back: "Are you sure there is a connecting train to St. Gallen?" My goodness!!! Why would I be asking him for train info if I know whether there is or there is no train connection? If he could at least put a smile on his face and pretend he loves his job...

So, if the only thing you are looking for is the price, this is it...but I wish you good luck about getting friendly or helpful service from this hotel

We stayed at the Achat Plaza hotel for 3 nights during our stay in Salzburg. The hotel is about a 15 min walk from the city center, but has excellent, ultra clean rooms with great service. We loved their upgraded bathrooms, and the free sauna service on the 4th floor.

The hotel has charges 6 euros/night for parking, but is right off of the freeway, so convenience is great if you plan to drive. All in all, I would recommend this hotel to anyone for its spotless rooms and great service.
