Hotel Sacher Salzburg
Ranked #6 of 132 Hotels in Salzburg
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 24, 2012

We have just stayed for 2 wonderful nights in this brilliant hotel in Salzburg. Once the doorman realised we were indeed staying at the hotel (our appearance after a long journey seemed to wrong foot him!) he was brilliant as were all the staff throughout.

Particularly memorable: Sacher Grille where they serve excellent informal food in great ambience and at very fair prices. The bar looking out over the old town. The room was just fabulous in every way. All the modern requirements were there - free wifi, wide range of TV channels etc - you would expect that from a five star hotel but it was just so beautifully appointed and designed? Responses to room service demands etc seemed almost instantaneous. There is a TV in the mirror in the bathroom - that's a first for us. Excellent extra things like a DVD player and an iPod connection unit were also there and available. Okay, that is not special, but both of those things have been conspicuously absent in all of the other hotels we have stayed in on this three week trip through Austria, Sitzerland, Italy and France - several of them 5 star.

Particularly impressed by Peter serving breakfast and Heidi in the Grille.

We would stay at Hotel Sacher again in a heartbeat.

In an effort to find something negative to say.........
Why offer so much and then leave water in the room at 6€ for a small bottle?
The senior people at reception were just slightly 'sniffy' compared to their junior counterparts. I suspect they were just a little more formal really but isn't naturalness so much better than formality?

Room Tip: Face the river

My wife and I stayed two nights at the Sacher and can’t praise the experience highly enough. I would describe it as an Old World European hotel, with excellent furnishings and décor. Recent renovations have only enhanced the hotel.
The hotel is located right on the water with easy access to everything you want to see in Salzburg and the smallish room was more than made up for by our balcony, with superb views of Salzburg river (spectacular at night). The bathroom was compact but immaculate. There was some traffic noise but this was more than compensated by the views.
We found the staff very friendly and helpful with some good tips for seeing the city, and really enjoyed the breakfast with plenty of choice in Cafe Sacher, a wonderful wooden panelled restaurant overlooking the river. Free Wi-Fi and the choice of television channels were a bonus as was the plate of cakes/desserts on arrival.
The Hotel is what one would expect from a 5 star Hotel and I would definitely stay again

Room Tip: Ask for a high room with river view- less traffic noise and spectacular views.

This hotel is in a fantastic location, and a perfect example of a proper old fashioned european hotel. It is old, so therefore not entirely 'spotless' and could do with a little updating here and there, but it was a pleasure to stay there and made you feel like going back in time! The breakfast buffet was great (if expensive!) and the staff were very helpful. I would certainly stay here again if I were to visit Salzburg in the future.

The one downside is the price. Compared to other places I've stayed around the world, this hotel was incredibly expensive, but compared to other similar hotels in Salzburg, it's fairly competitive.

Located right on the water with easy access to everything you want to see in Salzburg. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. The Cafe Salzburg is attached and had great service as well and a good breakfast. The rooms were spacious enough and furnished nicely.

No complaints, everything lived up to my expectations. Friendly and helpful staff and perfect location. Room was spacious enough and beds were comfortable. Did not do breakfast in the hotel but in the hotel cafe which was good and more reasonably priced. Would stay again.

Stayed here six times. And it's always perfect. Any stay in Salzburg is heaven but this is the best hotel. The rooms have been renovated but still retain all the atmosphere of its past. The breakfast is excellent and the situation on the banks of the river makes it perfect for watching Salzbug beautifully illuminated at night. I've been with and without children. Salzburg has tons to do for them.

My wife and I stayed at the Hotel Sacher for a week. The location is ideal as it is a short walk to most areas of Salzburg. The staff were friendly particularly once they knew you were there for several days, they were always helpful and responsive.

The room was pleasant and there was a sacher torte to greet us on arrival which was a nice touch. The air con was a little weak but worked fine.

There are several restaurant cafe options there with similar menus.

Overall we had a great time and would stay there again when in Salzberg.
