This hotel is walking distance from Salzburg's old town, which gives it a nice seclusion. Set amid park land and looking out onto a lake adds to the sense of separation from the tourist throng of the city. Breakfast is served in an immense old ballroom, but it is the library that sets this hotel apart from any other I...

Really enjoyed staying in this hotel during our pre-Christmas visit to Salzberg. The palace and its gounds were beautiful especially as it had just snowed. The staff were wonderful and helpful, given great advice on restaurauts and picturesque drives in the area. Our room was very comfortable, warm and had every amenity we needed. Breakfast included a good assortment of...

Worth it if you grew up watching Sound of Music or if you simply enjoy having a grand breakfast in a sumptuous ballroom overlooking the Alps. We stayed in the annex, well heated for December and biked to Salzburg historical center (12 min). A very pleasant stay for us. We took a cab in the evening for a Mozart concert...

We had a great time biking throughout Salzburg. I would highly recommend using the bikes the hotel supplied and seeing as much as you can by bike. The bikes have locks that were helpful and easy to use. Our only night in town was the night of a Krampus parade and was awesome!. It is a holiday tradition unlike anything...

My husband and I loved out two day stay here. The staff were friendly, we were able to check in early and each day they had mulled wine/gluhwein available in the lobby.

As cozy and comfortable as the rooms are, the view of the Lake are equally amazing. The hotel is very pet-friendly and accommodating.
