Haus Ballwein
Ranked #15 of 62 Salzburg B&B and Inns
Reviewed September 29, 2013

The owner was nice and friendly. It is a farm and I could hear a sheep or goat in a barn under hotel when we parked the car. YOu can smell them too. When you are in your room you can smell them. I wouldn't go back. The breakfast according to Rick Steves travel book was "farmhouse breakfast" it was nothing different from anywhere else--yogurt, cheese, lunch meat, bread and hard boiled eggs.

Room Tip: Go when you don't have to open a window (farm smell)

Haus Ballwein is located on the bus line outside the center city. It was like being "out in the country" and we loved it. Near a parish church we heard the angelus bells ring across the valley at the end of the day and were awakened by them the next day. Frau Ballwein was very gracious, providing us with much needed umbrellas for our tour of Salzburg. Breakfast just what you would expect in this friendly B&B.

We stayed at Haus Ballwein for five nights at the beginning of our holiday in June. It was the ideal place to recuperate after our long flight – a room (No. 3) with balcony overlooking fields and mountains. The room was spacious and spotless, a great place to return to after a day’s adventures.
It was very pleasant to have a sumptuous buffet breakfast while chatting with other guests. Frau Ballwein and her family made us feel very welcome and were helpful in every way.
We can certainly understand why people return again and again to Haus Ballwein!

My sister and I stayed in Haus Ballwein for four nights and absolutely loved it! The family were so helpful organising our Sound of Music tour so we got picked up at the house. They recommended the Salzburg Card which was great value and we saved a fortune on all the sightseeing activities. Really close to central Salzburg and the buses are very reliable. Great breakfast but most importantly we were made to feel very welcome. We'll definitely go back to Haus Ballwein.

Out of the city a little, and extremely convenient location. The bus stop is literally on the end of the driveway. Such a beautiful place. Our room was big, clean, and beautiful as well. Staff and owners were very helpful, warm, and welcoming. And the breakfast was great too!

My daughter and I went to Salzburg to visit friends living in the area. The Haus Ballwein was absolutely wonderful for our stay. The hosts were friendly and had information about the area. The bus stopped in front of the house and took us directly into downtown Salzburg. Breakfast we always on time and definitely met our appetites needs. we will definitely stay here again.

We have stayed with Frau Ballwein on 5 occasions. She always welcomes us with a smile. She is so friendly & helpful. The rooms are charming, and always spotless. The breakfast is delicious. You feel like you are in the country when in fact you are only 10 minutes from downtown Salzburg. It is such a lovely place. I enjoy every minute there!
