Great Location,Beaut Breakfast,Good StaffPosted Aug 5, 2014
Pros: Location,location,location - walking distance to every tourist sight. Breakfast excellent, and near lots of very good restaurants.
Cons: Air- conditioning, mini-bar in rooms, at least tea/coffee facilities in rooms.
Location: Very well located and walking distance to every tourist attraction in Salzburg
Hotel located in the "old city", central to all tourist sights, with very accommodating staff. However, rooms are small and lack air-conditioning, becoming very hot and stuffy in the summer months - when tourism is at peak.

Salzburg HotelPosted May 2, 2014
Pros: Comfortable room and an enormous breakfast area with a good selection of food.
Location: We found an excellent restaurant called s'Herzl. In main street (Getreidgasse) up an entry opp a shop called Salamander
A single night stop over after driving the German Alpine Road ending just up the road in Berchtesgaden. . The hotel is well situated with about 15 minutes walk across the river into town centre (shops and attractions). Salzburg is not the simplest of places to find your way around and the hotel is tricky to find without a good map or Satnav or asking someone!

A good budget hotelPosted Apr 26, 2014
Pros: Good breakfast and location. Free wi-fi. Friendly and helpful staff.
Cons: The decor in the rooms could be brightened up - they're very grey and white. More shelf space needed in bathrooms. There isn't any.
Location: Old town within a pleasant 10 - 15 min amble. Lots to see and do there.
We received a warm, helpful and friendly greeting, and were shown where to park in the locked garage. Our room was a reasonable size, especially for a one or two night stay. The bathroom was functional and everything worked as expected but it could use more shelf space. Decoration in both rooms was a bit spartan, but the beds were comfortable. All in all, pretty good value for money. The hotel is about 10 or 15 mins walk from the old town, and the general area is ok - we felt safe enough, even late at night.

Well situatedPosted Apr 17, 2014
Cons: Tea making facilities in rooms
Location: Good location right on bus route. There are two Braunaus pubs/restaurants within 5 mins walking distance that served good hearty food.
Good clean well situated hotel close to the pedestrianised street leading to old town. Very good breakfast, continually being replenished Only minor niggle - no tea making facilities in rooms & wardrobe space limited, but as i said only a small thing really. Everything else ok. Staff on reception really helpful. Took a trip to St Gilgen on Wolfgansee, by public bus which cost 25 euros for 2 - tour company 80 euros. Recommend doing this trip from May onwards.

Good location for all of Salzburg.Posted Jul 14, 2013
Pros: Inexpensive for the quality of the hotel
Cons: As mentioned could be a bit of noise from outside (ie. taxi rank)
Location: good for walking into the new town with easy access to the old town.
Very good breakfast buffet, staff were very helpful and the room was clean and tidy. Our second visit to this hotel so they must be doing something right! The only point I would make is that we kept our windows open due to the hot weather and it could be a bit noisy outside with the taxi rank.

SalzburgPosted May 17, 2013
Pros: Excellent location to Salzburg restaurants, shops and main sight attractions.
Cons: Wifi connection not good throughout building.
Location: Twenty minute walk from main railway station. Taxi depot adjacent to hotel.
Staff at front desk were extremely welcoming and efficiently processed us so that we could access our room quickly. The room was very well designed with modern decor and fittings. Pleasing to have no smoking on the premises. Breakfast choice was extensive with decor once again modern and clean. Friendly staff catered for our individual requirements. The only inconvenience was that our room on the second floor could not connect to wifi so we had to go to the foyer in order to use the Internet. Check out was efficient and professionally handled.

OK, but probably shop around a littlePosted Dec 31, 2012
Pros: Staff. Nice breakfast. Old Town accessible by 10 minute walk.
Cons: Rooms were worn. Temperature control not great. Noise. Basic amenities (e.g., coffee, in-room safe, etc,) missing. Disappointing because easy to fix.
Location: Pretty good. Easy and straightforward walk to Old Town.
This was a very basic hotel. Did not have coffee, safe or fridge in the room. Rooms seemed worn and there was noise from the street. No 'welcome package' explaining amenities, etc. When we stored our luggage for excursions, it was basically a closet with NO supervision and hotel does not accept any liability. Although Salzburg very safe, it was unsettling to say the least to leave our luggage there all day. Breakfast was very nice. Location was quite good. Staff were very friendly and helpful #which is why we rated it a 3 rather than 2 overall#. I am guessing for the rate, you can get better hotels. I would try another option before going back.

Simple and satisfied!Posted Nov 25, 2012 on Hotels.com
I didn't know what to expect when I booked Hotel Hofwirt. Surprisingly, the location was convenient(walking distance to Mirabell garden and Mozart's residence - less than 10 mins). Rooms/bathrooms weren't that spacious but it has everything that we needed. Shower was working fine with hot water, there were clean towels and sheets, etc. Breakfast was pretty impressive. Our family really enjoyed it! Hotel staff were very kind and helpful. Thank you! I'd return to this place for sure.
