This hotel is a wonderful position easy to walk to everything and the staff are helpful
The rooms are very small and claustrophobic Bathroom small glass box and the door kept jamming
But I Would definitely come back to Salzburg again

A very cool hotel, incredibly well located in Salzburg. They offer a very solid breakfast in morning and an excellent fine dining option in the evening. A boutique style hotel, with an interesting configuration, we had a great room over looking the outdoor dining area that worked very well for our family. Highly recommended!!!

Staying at the Blaue Gans was a good experience. It is housed in a very old building fronting on to the main pedestrian street. Its location is perfect for shopping or exploring Salzburg.

Some street noise at night on the second floor in oiur street-facing room but it was rather distant and not a problem.

The room was minimalist but had everything we needed. Good bathroom, good free wifi, excellent breakfast included, nice restaurant out the back.

To unload your baggage, you have to pull in to a small area out the back in the street behind – not on their booking or website info and I had to ask. You then have to drive back through a tunnel in the rock, and park in the public carpark (although the hotel endorses your ticket so it costs a bit less). This was not too difficult, and the hotel gives good instructions including an aerial photo/map. Part of the price for staying right in the old town. The walk from the carpark to the hotel is about 3-4 minutes.

A couple of niggles: curtains did not seal out light that well and the aircon was a unit in the room that roared somewhat (but was very effective).

Overall, I would recommend the Blaue Gans as an excellent choice for staying in Salzburg.

The Blue Gans is right on the man pedestrian thoroughfare in the lod city are of Salzburg. Many of the more traditional hotels are furnished in a heavy, traditional European style. The Blue Gans is a cleaner, more spartan look. We liked this and chose it for that reason. We were favorably impressed.

The staff was unfailingly pleasant and helpful.

Some rates include breakfast. Ours did not and the breakfast in the hotel (good) was 20 Euro. Check your rate to see if it includes breakfast and, if not, decide whether a rate with breakfast fits your needs.

This hotel sits on the main lane which contains shops, bars, restaurants and leads right down to all the major locations. A beautiful old building with lots of original features. My favourite was the original windows and fittings.
Very friendly staff and receptionists always say good morning and have a nice day (often in German).

Very nice breakfast with lots of fruit and continental style.

Coffee facilities not available in room and I suggest this is expected now at these rates!

Bed in middle of room meant difficult to have anything at side of bed, i.e. Phone, books water. But minor thing.

Overall recommended.

Room Tip: Rooms on street side better views but maybe noisier than courtyard side.

Dear John F,
thank you very much for your generosity concerning the location of the bed. There is only one room in the hotel with such a setting - and you got it.
The "box windows", with two wings inside and two wings outside, which can often be opened to the street, are something special. You are absolutely right.
As we are part of the UNESCO world cultural heritage, the monument protection has a say in and we will not be allowed to change them in the furture. What a luck.
