What a lovely place to stay in Salzburg. It has an elegant and peaceful atmosphere. We arrived to pink champagne on ice, it was just what we needed after flying in from Budapest. Be sure to stay in the original hotel for a real Sound of Music feel.

The hotel looks good. The staff is amazing. And thats it... I really wanted to give more than 3 stars to this hotel, but honestly, its not worth it. We stayed in a basic room in the other building and we paid 180 euros. The room was tiny and apparently no kettles are allowed there. Then after we checked in,...

Hotel Schloss Leopoldskron is a beautiful hotel. It rained/ snowed for a lot of our time there and it was still stunning. It is a bit out of the way from "town" but if it were a nice day the walk is probably nice. We took cabs because of the weather and this was very easy- hotel would call and...

This hotel has amazing old world charm. We wondered around the rooms of the hotel during the day and no one else was there. We had both good and bad experiences at the hotel.

Standing on the terrace of the Schloss after a delicious breakfast buffet (included with your room along with free parking and wifi) and gazing across the lake at the towering snow capped Alps...a wonderful memory which still lingers in my mind.

Schloss Leopoldskron is a beautiful hotel on the outskirts of Salzburg. There were no issues checking in/out, the staff was always friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was delicious. When the weather is poor you will need to use cabs to get into town, but when it's nice it's only a 20 minute walk to the historic center of Salzburg....

I am a sound of music fun. I enjoyed the view of this hotel, and the library. The room I stay (sound of music room) was small.The photos from the website looks better than the real. If you are not the funs, is not worth to stay here.
