What a beautiful place! We had room 315. It was so spacious and exactly what we needed since we were traveling with a newborn baby. It had a kitchenette, sitting area, and living area. It was a little on the pricey side for a pension, but the comfort made it worth it. The beds were also super comfortable, which is what I had experienced when traveling in this area of Austria earlier. Not far at all from the main town, and since we had a car the parking out front made it easy. Breakfast was also delightful and the people who ran it were really nice. I would definitely go back again and would recommend it to friends. The only thing my husband wanted me to add is that he doesn't believe in this day and age they should charge for wifi. They didn't, but after we had to request another password they did charge 5 euros (we needed multiple passwords because we had different devices, i.e he had an ipad and computer, and i had an iPad). He believes wifi should have been included. But I loved the place!!

We are on 10 day vacation from Viena, Salzburg,Fussen and Venice. Spent 3 nights at Pension Frauenschuh. The first time we open our room, we have our jaws dropping. The room is so big and it has complete amenities like : microwave, plates,stoves ( yes stoves , which allow us to cook light meal). The balcony has beautiful scenery of Utternsberg mountain.
More importantly, the service is top notch - the owner, Marianne was so helpful and very quick to respond when we ask for additional soap.
I would certainly recommend this hotel and will be back to this hotel if I come back to Salzburg again.
Last but not least , the bus stop is right on front of the building, and you can buy the ticket from the hotel as well - both single way or day pass. It is conveniently 15 minute only by bus to the Old town Salzburg.

I've visited the hotel in june with my family. We have 3 kids ages 2, 6 and 9. the room we booked have a big bed as well as a bunk bed for the children. The hotel only offered breakfast which was nice but does not offer any other means throughout the day. The location is convenient if you have a car which you can park right in front of the hotel without having to pay any parking fees. It is minutes away from downtown Salzburg as well as many tourist attractions. The view from the room was very nice you can see the mountain range around the city.

It's a very nice 3 star hotel I would definitely recommend it.

We waited too long to book a hotel in Salzburg and selected this pension through Expedia. My husband and I were reluctant about staying out of the city center in a residential area. The pension was perfect for us!! The owner checked us in, gave us several brochures about the city, told us about the Salzburg Card and the bus schedule -everything to make our trip easier. Our room was immaculate and comfortable. We had free WiFi, a refrigerator, plenty of storage and space. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom was clean and had plenty of space for us to put our toiletries. The breakfasts were very good with lots of choice for meats, cheese, fruit, cereal, breads, and eggs cooked as we ordered. Service was good and they owners go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. The only drawback was the lack of air conditioning - we were there for two of the hottest days of the summer.
Salzburg is an elegant, old world city. The summer festival was in process while we visited and the people attending were dressed formally and elegantly. It was such a pleasure to see their sophistication and style. It is rare to see anything other than the causal attire even at the nicest restaurants around the world. Salzburg is a beautiful, clean and sophisticated city.

Booked two apartments. The apartments are not in the main pension building which seemed nicer but two buildings away. It claimed free internet but thats in the main building lobby only! The apartments stank and the tea cups and the kettle were greasy and dirty ! On the ground floor with the stink and august heat it was a disaster. If we kept the windows open there was a risk of someone coming in and stealing our things. If we closed it we were claustrophobic and truly feeling sick with the stink. The apartment is on the main road so it had noise till late night and early morning. The total experience was BAD ! And the lady running it. We actually wasted the third night and left early because kids hated and so did we

Room Tip: Dont stay here !

We stayed at the hotel for 7 nights. The hotel is quiet, and is extra clean.
The locatoin is perfect: 10-15 minutes drive from Salzburg old city center (we had a car, and we used the parking in the entrance to the old city, about 12Euro per day). Traveling to all sighseeing in the Salzburg area was very easy. This way we could achieve a balanced mix of city tour and Salzburg district atractions.
The Hotel offers large rooms (we were 2 adults and 2 kids (8 year and 5 year)) in a single room, latge enough to host us all, with a small balcony, viewing the nearby fields and the mountains. The kids loved the garden, and played there. There is also a small swimming pool, but we did not make any use of it.
Breakfast was great, rich and fresh, and we enjoyed it very much. The staff was helpful and correct. The only thing I found missing is a laundry room or a laundry service.

The pension is located just outside of Salzburg in a quiet residential area. Bus stop one block from the pension takes you into old town in about 15 minutes. The room and bathroom was one of the larger ones we had on our trip. Breakfast was wonderful and the innkeeper keeps a bowl of fresh fruit (we had pears--delicious) in the lobby for the guests. Also good local restaurants if you choose to not eat in old town. Innkeeper very sweet, helpful, and friendly. Can't say enough about this hotel. Really happy with our stay there.
