Nice hotel close to stationPosted Nov 11, 2013
This is a nice hotel that I stayed in for one night prior to catching an early train. Very pleased with the hotel itself and it's certainly convenient for the station. It's not the closest to the centre of town, though that's only a walk of 15 minutes or so away. It's unfortunate that the tone of the area is dragged down by the slew of sex shops and betting shops nearby.

Lovely stay in Salzburg at Hotel Hohenstauffen. Staff were great, giving tips on where to go. 15min walk to the old part of town but you can take a nice scenic walk on the banks of the river. There is an "adult shop" opposite the street but I didn't manage to run into any dodgy characters, other than that location was pretty convenient

Great quiet location and very friendly.Posted Sep 5, 2012
Pros: Helpful staff
Location: Perfect for train travel and nice walk into centre.
The staff were extremely helpful, especially when we needed advise about travel. They gave us all the help that was possible. Free internet. Good location close to the station but on a quiet street. Ask for the 4 poster bed at no extra charge if available. They arranged tours and picked up from the hotel. We left our luggage there on the last day, and as we finally quietly left, they came out to call and wave us off. I would highly recommend this family run hotel.

Close to river with charming walk to old townPosted Jan 26, 2012 on Hotels.com
Hotel is located in a charming older building that has been maintained in same family for generations. While the historic sites in the olde town are approximately a 15-minute walk, the river offers a charming way of getting there. As you round the bend and see a quaint old cathedral on the hill-top, the moment feels like what you imagined the lovely town of Salzburg would look like. The concierge was very helpful in idenitying local restaurant options and tourist attractions. The managers / owners were less personable but sem to actively be on site. Breakfast is plentiful and held in a quaint buffet room.

Felt like a Von Trapp and was treated like royalty!Posted Jul 25, 2011
I can't say enough good things about Hotel Hohenstauffen. I am a young woman who traveled alone to Salzburg for the weekend and I could not have been made more comfortable. The pictures on their website do not do the rooms justice; I walked into my single to find gold framed mirrors, the coziest comforter I've ever cuddled up with, and beautiful Austrian decor. I can't emphasize enough how wonderful the included breakfast was each morning, and the staff really went above and beyond their duties to ensure I was comfortable. They helped me get a cab, took my shoes to dry them when the rain had soaked them through, were incredibly kind and helpful with directions, and unfailingly cared for each guest. It is so nice to stay in a family run hotel; the service they provided was more extensive and genuine than anything I have ever received in a four star hotel. If you want accommodations with local charm, excellent customer service, and a gorgeous room, and don't mind a fifteen minute walk to the main sights (which you shouldn't), STAY HERE! Such a value.

Decent hotelPosted Aug 12, 2010
The Hohenstauffen is a nice, family-run hotel just a 2 minute walk from the main train station in Salzburg. The old city center is about a 10-15 minute walk away. The room was clean, even if the furnishings were a bit dated, and the bathroom was fine (not too cramped for a European hotel and good shower pressure). The owners were nice and offered suggestions and advice, and even let me borrow a US-European electrical adapter. The breakfast had a decent spread of fruit, bread, cheese, cold cuts, and cereal. There is a sitting room where you can relax and use the internet (for a fee). There is also an internet 'cafe' a few doors down. Recommended if you don't mind walking to and from the city center everyday.
