              service, friendly breakfast its on the tour pickup circuit.

              while its out of the centre, bus access is good and its a nice walk to the old town, even in winter. and walking distance to the station with luggage.

            • Family with children

              The staff was very friendly and helpful, the hotel is in a nice, quiet residential area close to the river and some 20-25 min walking distance from the old city. The area in between the hotel and the old city is nice, either you take the route along the river or by the Mirabell park/castle so the walk is a pleasent one. The hotel offers free parking and that was a big plus cause otherwise daily parking is 12-15 euros. The breakfast buffet was good.

              The service was good. The staff was willing to change our accomodations to fit our family - a quad, 4 beds for us and our two teenagers. Breakfast was good with eggs, bacon, pasties, cereal and juices.

              Rooms, a little on the small side, but this was with 4 beds.

              My daughter and I were visiting Saltzberg as she is attending the university for a class. The staff was very helpful and the hotel was very clean. I chose the Hotel for the location and the cost. We will stay there again if we have the opputunity to come back to Austria. We come from California.

              The room has air conditioning, which was needed for the hot weather during my stay. The free breakfast was quite good -- had a good variety of food items. The location was not bad, about 15 min walk from the old town of Salzburg.

              Wifi should be free of charge like other hotels

              The hotel staff speak good English were very friendly and accommodating. The hotel is only about a 20 min scenic walk along the river to the castle and tourist shops and buildings. The room and bathroom were clean.

              The hotel was very very very bad. I can say it's only 1 star hotel not 4 star. The room was fully smile of smoking.My advice to everyone not booking in this hotel.

              Clean and quiet. Delicious breakfast. Walking distance from train station. Lovely walk along the river,about 3/4 mile, to old town. Also, we loved the Salt Mine Tour. We have 3 kids 8,10 & 12. We stayed in two rooms: a triple and double.

              It was clean and the parking is convenient

              Location is rubbish if you want to get into town easily. Fixed menu each night, which is probably ok for the coach parties that the hotel attracts though to be fair, the hotel staff did recommend a reasonable bar / restaurant round the corner (near to Popeye's Kebab House). Our room was bizarre. It contained a fold-away dining table and bench seats which with some deft origami skills could be turned into a third bed. The room felt like a caravan without wheels.

            • Family with children

              The staffs were friendly, and the breakfast was good. This hotel is quite near fron the central station - a 6-7 minutes walk -, but the area is really quiet, and also near from the river. You can walk to the downtown along the river, watching beaufitul scenery. The room was not big, rather small, but we could find some spaces to put luggage and other stuff. Also, it was clean and cozy. I could smell really fresh air at night. The price was rather high, but ok considering all the other elements.

              The breakfast was one of the great ones I've alread have (in quality, not quantity). The staff is very polite.

              The room size does not agree with the high quality of the hotel. To charge eur10,00 for the WiFi access per day is disappointing nowadays. I bought a tour with them and they does not give me full info about it.
