    Super centrally located, you are immediately in the Getreidegasse! Very attentive and friendly staff. Spacious rooms with separate toilets, delicious breakfast in a cozy, nice atmosphere. There is no outside noise in the rooms.

    The only point for improvement would be a car parking service.

    The location was perfect for exploring Salzburg, both old city and the newer areas. Since others had commented on the difficulties of getting into the old city and past the bollards, we programmed our GPS with a location on the road outside the old city and the followed the instructions provided by the hotel. The staff were very helpful in ensuring we got to see the best of the city.

    I could not believe we paid over $300 for this room. It was dark, uncomfortable, and noisy.

    We stayed here for one night while visiting the Christmas markets. Two blocks to Markets and right in center of old town. We arrived a little early but our room was available. Very nice accommodations and the taxi from the train station was able to pull to front door. The restaurant was great too, serving the famous Nockerl.

    Perfect location to everything...both children walked the city with ease....traveled with 7 yr old and 3 yr old...hotel just 5 min. Walk to mozart's birth house and close to the river...room was beautiful...good breakfast...free internet..tried to book a triple, but only a double was available..didn't charge extra for 2 children..all 4 of us managed to sleep in the bed with ease...

    Cotton jersey sheets had hair from previous guests stuck to them...if room is facing the front of the hotel you will hear all the night time noise which echos straight into your room...make sure your window is closed tightly

    Perfect

    Hotel staff was excellent! They supplied great recommendations for shopping/eating in the surrounding area.

    The only thing I didn't care for is the hotel restaurant, we ate there the first night and our waitress supplied us with bread and then we received the bill with a 7.50 Euro charge for bread, don't appreciate the hidden costs!
