This was our first trip to Salzburg area as a family. We loved the location of the St. Nikolaus, it is right around the corner from another hotel that had an excellent dinner menu. (Try the onion soup!) The inn itself is quite large and lovely. Very queit area, the family lives on the second floor (european's first floor). We booked a family room for 4 people, 3 adults and my 3 year old. The room had a european king size bed (a little different than an american one, but still quite large) a nice futon bed probably a double when pulled out, and a twin bed. In addition to a desk, tv-with ton's of channels, including English! and a chair. The Beds were quite comfortable, and since they weren't busy they gave us an extra room at no additional cost-that way we could spread out a bit. The bathroom-FANTASTIC! If you have ever stayed in a European Pension or B&B you know that the showers (if you have one) is usually very small, kind of like showering in an upright coffin. At the St. Nikolaus we had an actual BATH TUB! The rooms were so clean and comfortable! We even had a blow dryer, shampoo, and soap-which is almost unheard of in European pensions.
On to the breakfast-DELICIOUS! There was so much and it was amazing! The owner even asked how we liked our eggs and how many we wanted!! The eggs were perfect and farm fresh! :) Excellent coffee and service.
Sabine is the owner and lives on sight with her family. She is lovely and so incredibly helpful. She had to go out of town the night before we left so she asked if we could settle our bill early-which was fine. Then after we got back, she had left on our desk in our room a plate full of delicious cookies and a very sweet note. Her friend and daughter took care of us the next morning for breakfast and it was amazing again!
We will definitely be back to Salzburg and will absolutely stay here again. I am so comfortable suggesting Pension St. Nikolaus to anyone traveling through the area. You are about 30 mins or so from Salzburg, and about 15 mins from the Salt Mine Hallein. The salt mine, I must add is an absolute BLAST to visit!
We can't wait to go back to Salzburg and to see Sabine and stay at the Pension St. Nikolaus again!
