Villa Ceconi

Reviewed September 2, 2012

This was our first time to Salzburg and Austria. Wish we had booked more time there! The hotel was nicely decorated and very spacious for the 4 of us (2 adults, 2 teens) - a bit odd check in and out - you have to go to another hotel down the street however the staff was so lovely it made up for this. As you need to be aware when booking in old historical type buildings (which I love) there are no lifts so be prepared to haul luggage up the stairs. I would have given this a much higher rating if not for the fact that it was a very hot August and there is no AC or fans so if you open your windows you are welcomed with the lovely loud traffic noise - and it goes all night long! And I wished it could have been a walk to the old town but you have to drive.

We are a couple with a 15 year-old son and stayed at Villa Ceconi for 4 nights in August 2012. The villa is administered by Hotel zur Post, which is 200 metres down the road and is were the front-desk (check-in) and breakfast lounge are located. The room was very spacious, newly renovated and very clean. There was a small balcony outside, but only large enough to fit one chair on. Wi-fi was fast and complementary and there was always plenty of parking in the villa car-park. The only complaint that I'd have is that it was quite hot during our stay, so we had to sleep with the windows open (no air-con or fan). Although we were at the back of the villa and hence not on the road side it still got quite noisy early in the morning.
It is about a 20-minute walk into the Old Town, but an unlimited-travel tram ticket can be brought for a few Euros (from the front-desk) and it's single journey into the old town (trams every 10 mins or so).

We opted to take breakfast in the restaurant (for convenience) which was excellent, if not a bit pricey. The hotel staff were all excellent and very helpful and friendly. They helped us arrange tours and tram tickets, provided us with advice and answered any questions we had about Salzburg. I'd thoroughly recommend either Villa Ceconi or Hotel zur Post.

The hotel is located in a grand renovated manor with large rooms. The stay was very nice though it got tiring walking the 25 minutes to and from town each time, I'd recommend you catch the number 1 bus to save time. The rooms were very clean and equipped for a short stay, no extras or bath but nice enough to save on the more expensive hotels in the city centre. It often got noisy in the morning with the cleaners, but not too big an issue. As the hotel is located away from the main hotel Zur post you get the feeling of independence which was nice. The staff at the Zur post reception were very friendly. Stay here if you want to get a real feeling of Salzburg and its quaint suburbs other than the typical well known centre but if you don't mind a walk or bus ride into town. Supermarkets and restaurants a few minutes walk away.

I stayed here off-season, during march 2007, in a quad (family) room. Our suite was wonderfully clean, and spacious- our washroom was oversized, new, and also squeaky clean. Our room had 2 flat screen tv's hanging on the walls, which was nice, and our washroom had speakers so you could have the radio playing as you showered.
Villa Ceconi is actually a kind of second wing of hotel zur post, so check-in, check-out, and breakfast were all located down the street at the zur post. Breakfast was the best we'd had throughout our entire stay in europe- there was plenty of variety, the room itslef was beautifully modern and clean, and the food was delicious.
Our only dislikes were that the villa didn't have any kind of concierge service, and that it was a lengthy walk (about a half hour) from salzburg city centre.

We stayed for 1 night at Villa Ceconi, in a double room. We were surprised at its distance from the city centre of Salzburg, we got the choice of catching a bus or a taxi, as a local informed us it was a 40 minute walk from the train station. We ended up catching a taxi, as it was late, and it cost almost 10 Euro.

We had arranged a late check-in with reception, and she had advised she would leave our room card in the safe, but it wasn't there. However, she did drive over from their offshoot hotel and hand it to us.

The room was comfortable, although small. It was clean. There was a vending machine in the corridor outside, which was good because there were no eating places to be seen up or down the street outside.

Breakfast was 5 mins down the road at Hotel Zur Post, and it was lovely. The staff there were helpful with directions to the salt mines when we checked out.

This hotel is very new and spotlessly clean. As previously mentioned no breakfast on site but short walk. There is a 20 minute walk into town. The en suite bathroom walls are glass and provide more of a partition than a barrier against embarrassing noises etc!!!!!! avoid if in a very new relationship and want to maintain your dignity! but altogether clean, quiet and comfortable.
