“Great Hotel, close to train station”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2013

My daughter and I stayed here for two nights, as part of our "Christmas Market" tour through Austria and Germany. We walked from the train station, as it was only a block. Our room was on the top floor, but they do have an elevator for those who wish. The hotel had theme floors having to do with Sound of Music, Mozart, etc. The staff was exceptional. They were extremely helpful and great English speakers. The room was large, bed comfortable, and quiet. The breakfast was substantial and served by a very nice and efficient woman. My only complaint was that cigarette smoke seemed to come up from somewhere and our room smelled like smoke, especially at night. I'm thinking from the basement area. This was not pleasant as we wanted a non smoking room. Maybe it was just our room, which was above the 4th floor. Otherwise, I can't recommend this hotel highly enough.

Room Tip: I would stay in a room lower than the very highest room, due to the smoke that drifted upwards from...

Five stars from us. We stayed in this hotel for 5 days and can thoroughly recommend it. The staff were very helpful, providing helpful advice. The room was nicely appointed and very clean. The room was very spacious with safe and tea and coffee making facilities and included an iplayer dock. Lovely and warm and the bathroom was spacious. The breakfast was really tasty, great choices of hot and cold food so much to choose from, continental meats and cheeses as well as various types of breads, fruit and pastries. Would definitely stay here again!

We are an elderly retired couple who are unashamedly travelling on our children's inheritance. We prefer to travel by train where we can, and therefore we prefer to stay in TA-recommended hotels close to rail stations. So, weighing up the above, this Hotel fitted our bill. We booked for three nights in mid-October via Rates2Go, because they offered a better deal than (our once-preferred option of) booking.com. Our advice is, do your homework!

So, what were the Positives?
1. The staff all spoke English and were very helpful - not only did they post our letters and ring up to reserve restaurants, they advised us to purchase the Salzburg Card. This card, for E35, gives unlimited travel on Salzburg buses as well as free admission to many of the Mozart attractions, including the funicular cable-car to the Fortress and the cable car to nearby Untersberg. This card is a bargain and highly recommended!
2. Breakfast was included in our tariff and provided a wide range of choices, including hot scrambled eggs and bacon; juices, cereals, meats and cheeses, and various breads.
3. Our room on the first floor was, by European standards, very spacious. It offered an Espresso coffee machine, a small fridge, and a very good en suite. WiFi speed also was very good.

What was not-so-good:
1. The weather was surprisingly mild in the third week of October, to the extent that our room became very stuffy and we were dismayed to find that the Air-Con didn't work. On querying why with reception, we were told that the hotel had switched off the cooling function for the winter, and individual rooms could not be turned on. OK, we can open the windows can't we? Well yes we can, except that being on the first floor traffic noise becomes obtrusive. This results in a poor night's sleep, and by golly, this makes us grumpy because we love our sleep!
2. The bathroom exhaust fan ("ventilator") didn't work so we reported this (twice!) to reception. Hopefully the next occupants of our room will have it working...

Summary: A good hotel, especially if can you can find a "competitive" tariff. Biggest plus is the staff, though it's a pity for us that a service technician couldn't sort out the air-con and exhaust fan issues. Despite this, yes, if we had a choice we'd stay here again - but I doubt that we are going to live long enough!

Room Tip: Ask for a room not overlooking the car park, nor the busy adjacent street.

We stayed a night after getting off the train from Vienna. Great that it is so close to the train station. Staff were super friendly and helpful. The family room was fantastic! it was very clean, large and had great facilities. We slept very well. Loved the Mozart theme everywhere :) Breakfast also excellent and the place was quite full. Probably a bit too far out from the old town for the family to walk but still very easy to catch a bus there. Nothing bad to say about this hotel at all. Just a minor point -the train station was quite ok inside, but a lot of renovations happening outside when we arrived. A few dodgy characters hanging around outside the station and it was rather dirty with rubbish etc. due to the construction work. Otherwise, we loved Salzburg!!!

I stayed two nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was conveniently close to the train station and other good shopping areas. The rooms were spacious enough and clean. The workers in the restaurant were kind and the food was good. The people at the front desk were always nice and so very helpful with answering questions.

I only stayed one night in this hotel. The front desk was friendly and helpful providing information we need. The breakfast was great. The room was clean and bright. It's not very close to the old town but a bit of walking can still take you there. That also saves a lot of parking expenses around the old town. There is no shower curtain in the bathroom (only a small glass panel which isn't big enough to prevent the water coming out.) Other than this, nothing to complain about the hotel. Highly recommended.

I stayed with my family in the hotel for a weekend. The room was very clean and well equipped. We had our own coffee machine and an iPhone dock. The hotel seemed to be freshly renovated. They tried hard to get a fresh styling and in most places that worked.

We had aroom to the main street and while that was no problem with the window closed, I still prefer to sleepwith an open window but forthat the street was too loud.

The hotelis close to the main train station and the sourrounding is not very attractive.

The reception is extremely friendly and triesto make every guest happy. Even rude guests were served with absolute politeness and friendlyness.

I will stay there again.
