In need of Modernization

Posted Sep 22, 2016
Pros: Hotel Staff were able to help with directions and booking a restaurant
Cons: Better bed and in need of modernization
Location: It was by a industrial estate and 20 minutes from the city centre
Hotel Staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel is about 20 minutes from the city centre. However, the bus stops outside and you can buy a 24hr ticket for 3.70 euros. Room was in need of decorating and the bed was uncomfortable.

Not going back, for sure.

We had one night of stay here. The receptionist had a hard time communicating key facts with me in English which is very unusual. Room was "very" small, and lacked many amenities that are standard (coffee, tea, water, ...). The only way to ask for anything was to go all the way down to the reception desk, needless to say very inconvenient. And last but not least, the receptionists both made sure to mention that I had paid much less than the room's rate since I booked on hotel.com, as if it justified their lack of patience in answering my normal questions like "where can I get some hot water?", or "can you explain how parking in front of the hotel works?", neither one a hypothetical question by the way.

The room was so comfortable and homely and made us feel very at ease. The staff were fantastic- friendly, efficient and made us very welcome and so would definitely stay here again. Great location too, bus ride away from town centre.

Wir hatten eine spontane Übernachtung gemeinsam mit unserem Hund gebucht. Das Hotel ist etwas abgelegen, da wir aber mit unserem Auto unterwegs waren, war das für uns kein Problem. Das Zimmer ist doch schon etwas in die Jahre gekommen. Probleme mit der Matratze oder der Dusche (wie in anderen Rezensionen erwähnt) konnte ich aber nicht feststellen. Der Concierge war super freundlich und hilfsbereit. Für einen kurzen, günstigen Trip weiterzuempfehlen.

Nice accommodation

Myself and two of my friends stayed here. The hotel was nice, but just a little removed from the city center. Taxi's were easy though as they were waiting just outside. The staff was very nice when you approached them.

When we arrived, after we have got confirmation, the reception lady told us there are no rooms available, and offered us a smoking room instead. Eventually, after escalation to her manager, she somehow did find a room for us. The hotel is far away from the city.

We came as a first stop for a father-son euro trip and although we had high hopes for the hotel, the fact that there was no air conditioning in the rooms in the 30 degree weather ruined everything.

Salzburg Stay July 2015

Posted Jul 19, 2015 on Hotels
We stayed for 2 nights, literally only sleeping and showering at the hotel. It was a hot weekend and there was no air conditioning so the hotel was hard to sleep in, and the shower was one of the worst I've ever seen. Rooms and the hotel where quite outdated and we didn't use the hotels bar or restaurant. But beds were comfortable and clean.
