“Charming hotel, charming location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

So much to love about this place... this might be our favorite of all time because of location, friendly staff and charm all around. Our large comfortable room had comfy beds, small dining table, mini kitchen, large bathroom, jacuzzi tub and a balcony as well. Downstairs, we enjoyed a complete Austrian breakfast in the cozy breakfast room overlooking the mountains. This hotel is located in a quiet, almost pastoral area (complete with lambs grazing in various yards). You can walk down nearby Moostrasse to a small deli for lunch if you choose. Or take the city bus from Moostrasse to old town Salzburg, to the shopping mall or Ikea. We will return here each time, I promise!

I needed a hotel for one night during in Salzburg for business, close to the airport. Even this is not a hotel in the general meaning the service was great, the room spacious and clean. There is even a free bottle of water in the room! The only thing I complained at the check out was that there was no soap in the shower cabin...

We are a family and always stay at this place when we are in the Salzburg area. Such a charming place, great owners paying attention to each detail of your stay. The house is beautiful, extremely clean and decorated in the austrian style. Great breakfast, great beds, and charming and large rooms, many with terrace, perfect for families. Also a spa is downstairs. Note that the hotel is not in the center of the city of Salzburg, but a bus passes just across the road where the hotel is located, circulating day and night. there is a free parking.

This hotel is a must in Salzburg, deserves your visit! Definitely!

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.
