“An old Lady in a charming town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2012

Nice stylish hotel a bit on the low side of the value for money scale. Friendly and helpful staff (one of the doormans however did not speak any English). Needs a bit of refreshing excellent breakfast.

Beautiful old hotel. Rooms are huge. Felt like I was in a palace. Front desk staff and concierge were superb. Excellent restaurant. Huge selection on the breakfast buffet. Stayed here for 3 days and loved it!

It is only a 15 minute drive by taxi to the Bristol Hotel from Salzburg airport. The hotel is in the "new town" and opposite Mozart's family home. The river Salzach is only two or three minutes walk away and the whole of Salzburg is easily walked. The hotel is excellent. We could find no fault. Everywhere is sparkling glass and crystal. The room we were allocated, "the star room" (there were stars on the ceiling at night) was very comfortable. We were made to feel very welcome and the service was superb. Breakfast was in the most sparkling place I have ever been to with chandeliers and mirrors everywhere. A great range of foods was available and included was a cooked breakfast if you wanted it. One day I had eggs and bacon. Do remember that they cook it together i.e. eggs on top of the bacon. And there is fizz available if you want it! We chose a room looking over the square and had a great view of the castle. We were going to dine at the hotel one evening but we cancelled our booking because we did not feel that we had clothes suitable for the surroundings! But I am sure it would have been very nice. A safe is included and there is a mini bar. As with all continental hotels, there are no tea-making facilities. In all a great hotel and thoroughly recommended. If I did have to make any negative comment it would only be that there could have been more shelves (or drawers) in the room to complement the more than adequate hanging space in the wardrobe.

Room Tip: Either choose one with a great view or a quiet room.

We originally were only going to stay here one night as we were staying in Munich, but loved the hotel so much we decided to stay another day. The staff and people were some of the nicest we have ever met in Europe and the rooms as well as the buffet in the morning was fantastic. Must stay here.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel in May 2011 in our travels through Austria and Switzerland. The hotel is beautiful and clean. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The valet parking was quick. The views we had from our room of Salzburg down-town were amazing!

We stayed here over Christmas with our adult daughter and partner in two connecting rooms and had a fabulous time. The hotel has wonderful old world charm and the best service I have experienced in a long time. Everyone down to cleaners said a happy hello every time you saw them and the employees went out of their way to help with anything. It is still run by a family and that showed in all the details especially the Christmas Eve experience. Anyone in the hotel who chose to gathered in the bar area on Christmas Eve for a glass of Champagne and listened to a couple of great Christmas stories, non religious and presented beautifully by the family and staff. There was a small brass band who played music and carols and at the end we all sang silent night in our different languages as the live candles on the Christmas tree were lit by a staff member and small gifts were given to all the guests. It was a very moving 40 minutes or so and brought a group of hotel strangers together who were far away from home but still wanting to celebrate Christmas. We then all retired to the beautifully decorated dining room for a traditional Christmas meal. The owner of the hotel continued to serve alongside his staff and even at the Christmas breakfast the next morning he was there early to serve as well. It was a stand out example of leadership and humility. I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough.

The Bristol exudes old world charm with a very traditional European clientele.The opposite of flashy. Excellent location. Generous rooms and well-appointed, modern bathrooms.
