We stayed in Schloss Monchstein for 5 nights during Christmas....
The location of the hotel is really nice on top of a hill which offers stunning views over Salzburg..the ways to get to the city are either to take the Monchsberg elevator [about 10 min walk from the hotel / costs 3.6 euros return] or walk down to the city [20 / 25 minutes] or take your car [parking is not that easy]. The surroundings are very peaceful and quiet, so it is an ideal place to relax. Especially, when you see the hotel at night with lights on..it is really brethtaking..
The hotel itself breaths a posh but also snobbish air [you like it or not..]..The rooms are great, very spacious, wonderful huge marble bathrooms, plasma TV, sitting area, and nicely decorated..
The hotel is decorated and furnished in a fine way...[i prefer more minimal furniture, but you cannot deny the beauty of the classic]..The staff was very helpful and polite...
The breakfast is moderate for that kind of hotel. The quality is good but for that hotel you expect something more...
There is a spa area which is minimal..but limited in area..and a small if not at all gym..
Generally we had a nice stay but we would prefer a more warm hotel that makes u feel a bit like at home. However, we admit that the aforementioned hotel is a true 5 star hotel in almost all categories..Getting around the area, i think that with a bit more money i would stay in Schloss Fuschl which is truly amazing...I f you would like a castle in the middle of the city but also secluded then Schloss Monchstein is ideal for you
