Great city, fell in love with it. Lots to see and do. Loved the cafe atmosphere. Great walks and tours to do. Waiters could be a little snooty but were fine. One downside is the amount of beggars in the street, although the do not annoy you. Will definitely be going back and perhaps hire a car to get around
Excellent hotel run by helpful, cheerful and friendly staff. Location is very convenient being only a 15 minute stroll into the old town and only 5 mins from the Mirabell gardens.
We stayed in a superior double room overlooking the pretty courtyard garden where you can relax. The room was airey, light, stylish, comfortable and very well equipped with a sofa, mini bar, Bluetooth stereo, flatscreen, coffee maker and kettle. My wife was enamoured by the walk in wardrobe!!!
We didn't use the bar but it looked good as we walked through it every morning for breakfast whic was delicious with a large variety of freshly prepared foods.
Overall, you can't go wrong with this one. In fact I'd almost a recommend a trip to Salzburg just to go to this hotel! Don't forget to try the small friendly bar around the corner called Weiss for good bar and down to earth Austrian food.
Staff exceptional and spoke English well. quick check-in. Excellent breakfast buffet with bacon and eggs :-). Parking on street free from 7 pm to 9 am but not easy to find after 7. Parking garage across the street 13 Euro for the night. Room was spacious and appeared to have been remodeled recently. Felt safe. Drove downtown in 5 minutes but parking is a problem so it would be better to take a bus. Seems to be hard to get ice in Europe
"Beautiful historic hotel in the heart of Salzburg"
Very nice and comfortable historic hotel that has been refurbished to a very high standard and I would highly recommend it. Hollywood themed room was fantastic and very comfortable. A very nice buffet breakfast was provided. Right opposite where Mozart lived and everything in Salzburg only a short walk away. Check in, staff seemed quite miserable, but rest of the staff were great.

This is by far the best European hotel we've stayed in. Service was personal, genuine, pleasant and certainly excellent in this beautifully maintained Schloss overlooking the city. We were upgraded to a suite on the top floor since this was a fairly slow couple of weeks in Salzburg. Staying on the terrace to read or have a bowl of soup or just a glass of water was pleasant and comfortable in the sunshine. Breakfast was a joy with plenty of choice and a view over the city.
We had the tasting menu one night. It was inventive and delicious served with care. We felt the food to be of a Michelin star standard. Yes, this is expensive, but it truly is value for money if you are lucky for something special.
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.
