“Wonderful, except for the mosquitoes!!!”
Reviewed September 9, 2010

I picked this hotel based upon the stellar reviews and I am not sorry I did. The room was much bigger than expected (had a kitchenette!) and had a separate toilet (great for young children), but the best part was the meals. Outstanding breakfast (cooked to order eggs!) and dinner was fabulous. We stayed three nights and had dinner there the first two. Something for everyone, although the menu didn't change when we were there and dining there three straight nights might have been a stretch.

Free parking is a plus and we drove downtown because there were five of us (three adults, two children) so I can't comment on the bus, but did see the stop, maybe 150 meters away. Parking all day in the Allstadt garage is 14 Euros, so economical from our standpoint and it took no longer than 10 minutes. I'd also watch my step walking around the hotel. It appeared the horses pulling the horse-drawn carriages in the Old Town are stabled quite close to the hotel, and they're not quite so diligent cleaning up after them as they are downtown.

My one criticism is the lack of screens on the windows and the dearth of information on how to deal with the mosquitoes in the rooms. When we arrived, the windows in our rooms were open and I didn't think anything of it until we returned from dinner, only to find a ton of mosquitoes in the rooms. There were these green, air-freshener-type things that you could plug into an outlet on the tables, but no instructions on what they were or what to do with them (ignorant American?), so I didn't do anything. Boy, was that a mistake!!! I woke up in the middle of the night, swatting like crazy. I closed the windows but the damage had been done. My son had 27 mosquito bites! I felt awful. It wasn't 'til the next day that we figured out what to do with those green things, but how I wish some mention of them had been made in the Hotel Information in the room. But our bad luck is your gain and shouldn't deter you from visiting this gem. Enjoy!

This was our first stop on our first trip to Europe, and we loved it. We received a very warm welcome, some good advice on things to do and see, and a very hearty breakfast in the morning. Our room was well-furnished and very clean. We had a great view of the mountains. There's a bus stop just across the street, so we used all-day bus passes to get everywhere we wanted to go around Salzburg. It's only a 20-minute drive to Berchtesgaden and Eagles Nest. Our only complaint was the sloping roof in our top-floor room. I hit my head a few times getting into bed and the shower.

We were very pleased with our stay here! The bus was pretty easy to figure out compared to other places we've been, but the days that we had a car were even easier. We used a car the days that we drove to the outskirts of Salzburg, and we took the bus to visit the city. This worked out very well. Just make sure that you have an updated bus map, etc, and that you read the signs carefully for the departure/arrival times. The breakfast was very good at the Blobergerhof. I especially enjoyed the coffee cake! The room was just right! The hotel is in a great setting, and it really is "top value!" I think that the rates were appropriate- I think that one thing that makes the Blobergerhof so marketable is that they don't overcharge their guests. Everything was wonderful! If I ever make it back to Salzburg I will stay there again!

We stayed 3 nights at Bloberger Hof Pension about 20 minutes out of Salzburg. We found it easy to get into town by bus, with the stop a few minutes walk. The Hotel is set amongst open fields and residential areas. Make time to go for a relaxing stroll along the country roads and discover the charm of the local houses and farms. Our room was split level, with lounge downstairs, and bedroom, ensuite upstairs. It was tastefully furnished and kept very clean. We awoke to a magnificent view of the Untersberg Mountain from our bedroom window, and a view of open fields from the spa bathroom. The house is spacious and charming, with an Austrian cultural feel. Our host family looked after us very well, from picking us up at the train station, to settling us in on arrival. We particularly enjoyed the dining experiences , with good breakfast choices, and the delicious dinner menu, which made it easy not having to travel for meals. The best kept secret of Salzburg is the cable car trip up the Untersburg. Take the bus from the city, and enjoy the beautiful countryside views on the way up, and the eerily quiet atmosphere on top of the mountain. Salzburg was a refreshing change from the bigger cities, with it's old town narrow streets, the fortress, and the Sound of Music Tour. (A must see). We found the Salzburg card to be the best value of all city cards, as it offered more benefits to sightseeing highlights etc. We bought ours from Inga at the Pension Hotel. We recommend the Bloberger Hof as quality accommodation In Salzburg.

We only stayed 2 nights in this pension and wish we would have stayed longer. Initially we were booked in a 2 bedroom apartment we did not like and we were moved to another room with no problems (additional charge for superior room). The first room was a 2 bedroom apartment (Room 7) which was dated in my opinion and had a small bathroom. The second room was Room 17--which was a recently decorated room, 2 story loft, pine furniture and marble bathroom--much larger than the previous bathroom. The location like everyone has mentioned is 15 minutes bus ride which we took because downtown was very busy at the moment with festivals and the parking is a lot more difficult and expensive than riding the bus. The bus ride itself was very simple once you figure everything down. The breakfasts were wonderful. Chef Robert has a great menu available for dinner. I loved the dinners in this place and they add a special touch to the Pension. The pension is a family business and they work very hard to make everyone happy. I would stay again at the Pension if we return to Salzburg.

We wanted to stay one night in Salzburg in oder to do the Sound of Music tour and a Mozart concert, so I booked two rooms at the Blobergerhof, based on price mainly (it was much more reasonable than any of the places in downtown Salzburg). I was hoping that the rooms would be at least clean and adequate. Little did I imagine that we had found the true gem of our two week stay in Europe! What a splendid little place this is! A beautiful, rustic location, with stunning views (but only fifteen minutes or less from the center of Salzburg by car). Wonderful, professional management-- most friendly and accomodating. The cleanest rooms I've ever seen, and very charming, too. A wonderful breakfast in the morning (we were sorry not to be able to try the restaurant), with omelettes made to order! We mourned when we had to leave for Mittenwald, and cursed that we hadn't booked at least one more night in Salzburg! Then, on checking out, Inge, the innkeeper informed us that the rooms we had were "only" "standard" rooms (not deluxe as in our original reservation (could have fooled us-- they were large & charming, both)-- so she was refunding 15 euro per room to us! Talk about ethical; she could have charged us the full amount, and we still would have thought it a bargain. What an honest woman-- and charming, too! We've been back from Europe only a week-- but it's the Blobergerhof we miss the most! Highly recommended for anyone traveling to Salzburg!

The Bloberger Hoff is possibly the best value hotel we have ever stayed at. On booking, after reading many good reviews,we decided upon a slightly higher than basic room, without booking the top rate. We arrived and walked into our 'room' to find a two floor apartment with living room, bedroom, large bathroom and balcony awaiting us! Great stuff!

We ate in the hotel restaurant twice; not a huge selection of things to eat but what they do have is perfectly nice. Breakfast is great with eggs made to order alongside the continental norms. Service was fantastic with a cheap mini bar in each room and reception desk help whenever you need it.

In terms of location, Slazburg is a 5 minute drive away, the Eagle's nest 3/4 hour, lakes and mountains of salzburgerland less than that.

A lovely place, would recommend to anyone, much better than getting stuck in the city centre and losing interest in it fast, loads to do.
