The view over the Saltz River to the skyline of the old town is fantastic! The fortress on a clear day is extraordinary. Although on a busy and noisy street along the river, the double windows keep out all noise. The room was very large and well lit, (although the room was trapezoidal, and a little disorienting for us old folks. ) The bathroom was large with lots of hot water/pressure. A very short walk across the bridge and your in old town in the other direction great shopping major street in New Town.
The indoor/outdoor rooftop bar restaurant on 7th Floor is a must see for visitors and Saltzburgers as well, simply beautiful, and your staying here! (Hint, try to stay on the second (3rd floor to Americans) or above for best views!)
Little bit of a walk to get anywhere, not too bad though. Room was fairly spacious and bathroom had a full sized tub/shower. Attached restaurant was ok, apple strudel could've been better. TV didn't work, but no big deal, we weren't there to watch tv.
My daughter and I enjoyed a short break. We had a small problem with the safe and the sink plug. The staff sorted the problems immediately and apologised profusely to us.
We were able to walk to all the main attractions. There were several excellent restaurants close by.

Our stay at the Hotel Sacher Salzburg totally exceeded our expectations. We were upgraded to a suite on the 4th floor and the room was amazing. Our view of the river, the old city, and fortress were priceless. I've been fortunate to stay in some of the finest hotels in the world....Peninsula Hong Kong, Four Seasons NYC, etc. I put the Sacher in that category. A once in a lifetime experience for us. The stay was perfection
"Good hotel and location but need to be renovated"
The hotel is in good location just a short walk to the old town and city center. The staff are very friendly but the rooms need to be really renovated. We have noticed some of the rooms were in the process so make sure to stay in one of the new rooms. At first when we checked in we had a big family room for 2 ppl but it was an old one and the furniture was old and ugly, but the second night we have been transferred to smaller room but was much nicer and clean. The room size was ok but there is no nice view because buildings around the hotel. The roof restaurant was very good.
We very much enjoyed our stay at Hotel Amadeus. Hotel staff, especially Natalie, were exceptional. We were able to get tickets for tours at the front desk (don't miss the Sound of Music tour - it was great), and they were very responsive to all needs. The hotel is on the walking street (Linzergasse), and a short (5 min) walk to the "old" section of Salzburg. The restaurant downstairs was excellent - great Minestrone soup and breakfasts were very good with great assortments of breads. The only drawback was that it was right next to the church and the church bells go off between 6am - 6pm, but after one night it isn't an issue. I'd stay here again as it is very comfortable and a great value for the price.
Three day break to Salzburg so needed a centrally located hotel. The Hotel am Mirabellplatz in the new town was perfect for us. The old town offers everything - beautiful squares and architecture, Mozart, shopping, markets, museums, Irish bars, restaurants, segwaying. There are so many stunning views - from the fortress, museum of modern art and the Kapuzinerberg, as well as just strolling by the river. The new town has lovely (but expensive) shops, good restaurants (try Shrimps) and a 'must' is a slice of sachertorte in the Hotel Sacher! Will definitely re-visit Salzburg and would stay at the hotel am Mirabellplatz again.
We liked the location of this hotel in a pedestrian only area, just a block from the river and part of the old town area of Salzburg. The hotel is on the small side, being an older building typical of European old town properties. The room was clean and the bathroom and closet areas were spacious. There are no real views here, just a nice room in walking distance from everything in Salzburg old town. The breakfast was good and service adequate. The checkout process was not the best, as they seemed understaffed for the demand. Parking is a few blocks away in the mountain parking area, and if you call before your arrival they will give you the codes to drive in the pedestrian area for luggage drop off and check in. They were very helpful with this.

Salzburg's Old Town was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1997. Its main shopping street, the Getreidegasse, is one of the busiest shopping streets in Europe. Mozart's Birthplace is also on this street and can be toured. Other top draws include the Salzburg Cathedral and the Hohensalzburg Castle, which towers above the Old Town, offering wonderful views of the city.
