We really enjoyed our stay. In the heart of the city. We walked to all the places we wanted to visit. Breakfasts were good. Staff was friendly and helpful. I would stay there again. I'd recommend it to friends.

I arranged this hotel for a group of people and apparently the rooms differ a lot. The one I got was tiny and headed the street in front of the hotel, this street is supposed to be for pedestrians only. However, when the lorry for the waste is coming 5.50 in the morning and takes 20 minutes to collect the...

I travelled with my husband, staying in a Double room, also with my parents in law (Double room) and sister in law (Superior single room). We arrived at the hotel via taxi, and...

We stayed two nights while attending my cousin's wedding just across the border in Einring, Germany. A gorgeous city, and this hotel has an amazing location. Check in was easy (easier since I speak fluent German) and quick. Checkout was likewise very easy, and we were able to leave our luggage in the lobby while we finished our sightseeing before...

We absolutely loved this hotel! Situated in the heart of old town Salzburg, the hotel offered a variety of amenities. The room was spacious, tastefully decorated, unbelievably quiet with double-paned windows, and the bathroom was bright and modern with a large tub. There is a convenience store just around the corner which has an ample supply of beer, wine, liquor,...

Friendly greeting, most comfortable room, good breakfast, pleasant staff. The hotel has a nice restaurant. Central location for all the town has to offer. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Perfect.

Enjoyed a 3 day visit for a 3 day break to visit the Christmas markets in December. Very nice hotel located right in the centre of the old town. It's small but quaint, we had a deluxe room which was very comfortable. Breakfast buffet was good with a decent choice. Only complaint would be that the Hotel Bar allows smoking...

We stayed here for 3 nights in June 2016, (a bit late with the review). Room was very clean & nicely furnished, breakfast was nice & had plenty to choose from. The hotel is nicely situated to explore the old town with plenty of restaurants nearby.
