We arrived to a warm welcome at reception and were given room 373 in the main building on the 3rd floor, a corner room with a small balcony looking out to the street and the mountains. It was large with a comfortable bed, good facilities, well decorated and with a light and airy feel. It was perfect!
The breakfast room was delightful and the food plentiful with a good choice of cereals, muesli, fruit, bread, cheeses, cold meats etc and the oft commented on eggs to order! There was certainly enough choice with teas (in tea pots) and coffees to order. The service was excellent.The room spilled out into the garden which was lovely on a warm summer morning.
We had fine weather during our 4 day stay in August and spent a lot of time exploring the city which is relatively compact but with wonderful buildings, squares and the majestic Salzach River running through. A visit to the Castle is a must, as is a walk by the river, day or night to view the many stalls on the banks and to the Mirabell Gardens.
Out of town I can recommend trips to Hellbrunn Palace Water Gardens (attractive house, guided tour of the water features when you will get a little wet! and extensive grounds); travel on the number 25 bus, it takes less than 30 minutes. Also by bus 150 from the main train station we went to St Gilgen for a trip on the lake and a cable car to the top of a nearby mountain with fabulous scenary whichever direction you look! Busses in Salzburg are very efficient, even getting from the Airport was easy as the bus (no. 2) deposited us round the corner from the hotel.
We really enjoyed everything about Salzburg and the Hotel Auersperg made the experience a special one.
