We arrived via train at 3:23 am and were kindly greeted by helpful staff despite the odd hour of the day. They stowed our luggage so for us until it was time to check into our rooms and allowed us to use the facilities. The staff was very professional and courteous when I called before leaving the United States to...

Like many many people out there, I grew up listening and acting out the movie the sound of music. So when I found out that we can actually stay in the place where they shot the movie, I was all for it! It was such a lovely experience! I fell in love with the lake, the scenery and pretending I...

This hotel is well known as the castle where sound of music was filmed & we are so blessed to have the chance to stay here! It's slightly out of the way from the town but totally worth it. The lake is frozen but the winter view is so mesmerizing... The service was superb. The staffs are very attentive and...

I stayed at this iconic hotel in late summer with my family and had the most unforgettable experience. Hotel Schloss Leopoldskron is in the prime location, in the serenity of suburbia, yet perfect walking distance from the old town. Upon arrival, we were greeted by the front desk staff, who were most welcoming and accommodating. Our room was large and...

Reviewed 6 January 2017 via mobile

This hotel is walking distance from Salzburg's old town, which gives it a nice seclusion. Set amid park land and looking out onto a lake adds to the sense of separation from the tourist throng of the city. Breakfast is served in an immense old ballroom, but it is the library that sets this hotel apart from any other I...

Worth it if you grew up watching Sound of Music or if you simply enjoy having a grand breakfast in a sumptuous ballroom overlooking the Alps.
