“Use only if you are visiting the Fair grounds”
Reviewed May 20, 2012

Very conveniently situated just across the street from the Messe(Fairground) entrance this is a typical hotel which suits only those guests who are visiting the Fair facilities on a professional visit and on these occasions the hotel is very busy.The hotel rooms are small and outdated ,very basic, and the service is really very bad. My room was barely cleaned in the 4 days I spent in the hotel, bathroom unattended, no new towels. Reception service is slow and the staff consists mostly of inexperienced young personel who look overstressed and not really happy to be doing their job. Breakfast is Basic but not too bad and the dining room is quite pleasant, but the coffee is horrible. If you are on a visit to Salzburg I recommend you find another hotel, closer to the city centre and the shops as this one is miles from nowhere in an ugly area and really not very convenient if you do not have a car. Salzburg is a lovely city.

Very nice hotel, we were a car, so a longer distance to the center we did not mind. The room was clean, no noise at night, which is important for us, so we slept very well. Breakfast excellent and large selection. Price very good, as it was a Christmas stay. We recommend this hotel!

Me, my wife and our daugher stayed in the Hotel for 2 nights. The service for the price we paid (approx.150€) via Octopus Travel was very ok. (In compare with the original price of the Hotel which would be almost double and too high for this standard). The breakfast was well prepared, the hotel is tidy and quiet, though not very modern any more. On the 3rd floor there is self-service with the coffee, tea, sparkle water, fruits and it is free of charge. During our stay we were attending Exhibition Center - Messe Zentrum which is just next to the hotel therefore the location was really optimal for us. There is bus No. 1 going to the city (10 min. to Railway Station, 25 min. to the city centre), so we could spare money avoiding using the taxi.
Minus: no fitness, no pool, no restaurant, no pub, nor clubs in the surroundings
Plus: additional bed for our daughter, good food, coffee/tea/water free of charge, bus station next to hotel.

I came by car to this hotel threw the motorway and I had to take a ticket to pass to this area for the first moment we thought we reached to factories area, it gave as a very bad impression from the first moment. The receptions stuff is not high trained and some of them have a bad attitude as allot who works in tourism in Austria. No place to seat in the hotel accept the bar and one very badly located pc to connect to Internet. Breakfast buffet very limited. For from the tourism attraction and shopping.

Stayed here for 3 days. The hotel is 10 minutes by bus out of the city but worth staying in. Quiet location, great breakfast, lovely rooms and wonderful hotel staff who were very friendly and helpful. What impressed me was that on each floor there was a coffee machine and a large bowl of fruit. One could help oneself at no extra cost. This was a lovely gesture. One of the best hotel I have stayed in through the 7 countries we visited on our recent vacation in Europe. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that looks out on the lovely snow .

We stayed here 9-11 of oct 2010. Good location( 10 min by bus to the centre ) and very quiet.
Everything is very clean, the lobby, the rooms, the restaurant.
The air is very clean and a beautiful landscape could be seen from the window( the Alps).Both staff from the reception and the restaurant are very kind and professional. And breakfast is excellent. Good price too.

This hotel is a typical travelling salesman hotel.It is next to the Messe in a not so nice part of Salzbourg.The rooms are alright but very dated.It is a noisy area.On our last night a fight broke out nextdoor and three drunk Hungarians were thrown out of the hotel with a lot of noise in the middle of the night.the food is alright.I found the place depressing.
The staff is very helpful,They speak all the languages you might need but they have a tough job and long working hours.The staff look tired ,the hotel looks tired and the lift is for ever breaking down.Do not stay there!
