“Great place to stay! Hafnerwirt - Hallein - Austria”
Reviewed July 2, 2012

My wife and I have used the Hafnerwirt many times while on holiday in Hallein & Salzburg.
Hallein is not very far from Salzburg.
The staff members are very friendly, the prices reasonable (€40 pp), rooms clean & comfortable and breakfast excellent.
There is a good restaurant on the ground floor if you don't want to travel into Hallein proper. I don't think the restaurant belongs to the Hafnerwirt.
This is a great place to stay if you want to explore the Saltmines on Dürrenberg, see the mock Celtic village up there, visit the Pilgrimage Church of St. Maria or just get into the history of the town which has always been connected with salt refining. We return again and again and always find something new to occupy our time.
Since it is so near Salzburg and the trains run frequently, it is an attractively priced alternative to Salzburg tourist prices.
Franz Xaver from Hallein wrote "Silent Night" - just thought I'd mention that.
The Celtic Museum in Hallein proper is also well worth a visit.
I unreservedly recommend the Hafnerwirt as a fine reasonably-priced place to stay.

Room Tip: Try and book a room not facing the street. If you open the windows on rooms facing the street, the t...

Very noisy surrounded by 3 busy streets. Small room. Amplified by the loo ventilation which couldn't be stopped. Dirty rooms with thick black linings on the carpet edges. Don't get close to the hotel restaurant. Mexican (sic!) food. Chili con carne made me sick for two days. "When you stare into the abyss the abyss stares back at you". (Nietzsche)

Why do you go to a city hotel when searching the absolute silence?
Have you seen the roads as you entered our house?
They have come to our house without reservation, they need a double for 1 night.
They have seen the room before checked in, and told me everthing is o.k.!!!
They visited the show Faust I and Faust II on the Pernerinsel, duration 9 hours!!!!
From 5.00pm until 02:00pm
Why do you eat chili con carne before going into the show?????
The bathroom ventilation goes after 3 minutes, when the light turns off.
Price and performance, if you are used to the luxury of a 5-star establishment,
please then go for the next time in a 5 star hotel, you have paid in our house
€ 40.00 per person with breakfast buffet and all taxes, with free internet, etc.
