“Excellent hotel - we'll situated”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013 via mobile

Although a little pricey for November, we have nothing but compliments for the hotel and staff. The room was very comfortable; staff was courteous; and food was excellent. We'll situated near the main station, an excellent stay.

Great location - near to the station but a pleasant 7-10 minute walk into the old town (Alstadt). Welcoming with nice touches, clean and warm. Bikes can be hired for 12E a day - highly recommended! Spacious rooms and a range of saunas to choose from. The steam room was closed which was a shame but still a lovely experience.

This hotel was completely average. Average rooms, average size, average location. It's about a 20 minute walk from the city centre, but mostly a nice walk along the river. It is close to the train station too. Breakfast was not included in our rate, so we did not try it. The hotel's charm comes only from the deer cushions, which are everywhere, but other than that there is nothing special about this hotel. For the price, I would stay somewhere closer to the city centre.

Stayed here with my bf just last week. We got a nice surprise when we entered the room. The room is so spacious and the bathroom is also v big with space for 2 sinks and one dressing table. Room is v clean. Wifi was v strong too, with no interruptions during our 1 night stay there.

Staff was v helpful, giving us city map and letting us know where we can find food etc. Location was v gd too, around 5 mins from the train station.

On the day of check out, as our train is only at 1.45pm in the afternoon, we requested for late checkout at 12.45pm (normal check out time is 12pm) and the staff allowed it :) this gives us time to have a packed lunch in our hotel room before the train ride. If not, we would be rushing out for lunch and rushing back again to collect our luggages. :)

Would definitely stay here again if we were to come to Salzburg again. :)

We booked this hotel for it's location close to the station and ended up not catching a train but driving. There is parking at 6E per day which is great and if you do catch the train it is very close to the station. We were able to easily get into town and the taxi to get in was about 5E or so but you could walk if you had the time and the energy.

Our room was shabby but quaint in a weird way. One of the main issues we had was there were two beds in the room but no room for two suitcases. So we had to trip over one and place it on top of the bed when we were not in the room. When in the room it was awkward as there was no room for the suitcase. The other major issue was the heat of the room. Seriously hot. We tried adjusting the temperature of the room to cooler but nothing happened. We had to have the window open but it was a very small window and didn't want to stay open. There was tea and coffee making in the room.

When we reported the heating issue to the staff they admitted they the controls were broken and they couldn't turn the heater off. They offered us another room but as we were only there one more night, we had better things to do that pack up our gear and switch rooms so we persevered with the hot room.

Breakfast was a serious disappointment and absolutely NOT worth 12E each. being allergic to dairy I expected a selection of other foods as we had for the other 3 weeks of our trip all over Europe. This was not the case. There was only a couple of poor quality meats, some rather odd scrambled eggs, no bacon. To be honest, you could pretty much eat anywhere else and be happier with the value than here.

I must say though, the staff were lovely and helpful. They really were. Credit where credit is due. they gave us maps, made a couple of phone calls for us and were good to deal with. WiFi is free and works fine.

The hotel could do with a spruce up though, from what we saw it is a little dated but you do get a nice family sort of feel to it.

Room Tip: Make sure the heating and cooling works in your room. Eat breakfast in town or at the station.
