Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Auersperg Salzburg
This was an excellent hotel for us when we stayed in April, 2004, over the Easter weekend. The somewhat small room was compensated for by lovely common areas of the hotel, including a luxurious and very welcome sauna-steam bath area with a roof garden and wintergarten style lounge. Service is great, the cleanliness and upkeep are impeccable and the staff are helpful -- although not as helpful or professional in our case as we would have wished for such a high end establishment. Still, it was a comfortable, three-day stay, and we would return without hesitation.
Nice hotel, a little out of the way
For our first trip to Salzburg, we booked this hotel after reading great reviews. We weren't disappointed - the hotel is indeed clean, safe, elegant, top notch really. The staff was pleasant and helped us book tours etc. I had booked the room through Expedia and had no troubles at all there either. The hotel is a bit further from Old City as I would have liked, but it was within walking distance to the train station and in a nice quiet neighborhood. Would recommend and would stay there again.
Luxury for reasonable price!
We are fussy people. This hotel is excellent. Excellent location, excellent rooms, excellent breakfast, excellent staff, free internet service, etc., etc., etc. The staff at Hotel Auersperg were friendly, efficient and very helpful. The room and hotel were immaculate. The breakfast was out of this world! Home-made jams and so much excellent food in a lovely setting. We ordered coffee to our room a couple of mornings and they had it delivered within 2 minutes both mornings! A huge bath to soak together in! Chocolates on your pillows! Quiet hotel so good sleeping! Would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this hotel!
Comfort all the way
We have just come back from our second stay and this hotel is just so comfortable. Nothing is too much trouble and they seem to have got all eventualities covered. The breakfast is second to none, the location is good and the atmosphere is
We stayed two nights this October. The hotel is very classy, clean and well located. A bonus was the fact that they have a computer workstation available for guests to use to check email - FREE!
Breakfast was outstanding. The staff helpful and were happy to make tour reservations for us.
It was difficult to find based on the directions from the website - and a "GOLDEN TULIP" sign is so tiny, you need a microscope to see it.
Highly recommend this hotel.
We spent 3 nights here in April 2003. It was a nice hotel, offering many nice amenities. Our room overlooked the garden and the size was average for a European hotel. The staff was helpful when asking for information. The location is a couple of blocks from the main Tourist/shopping area, but everything is within easy walking distance. We gave it 3 "stars" but it should be 3 1/2. Also, for a good restaurant/bar with local ambience, don't miss Die Weisse, just a block or so away.
We spent a long weekend at this hotel at the beginning of February 2003.We have stayed in many hotels all over the wolrd and I can honestly say that this is one of the best.The rooms are beautifully furnished with period furniture and classic colours. The breaksfast each morning was a buffet from a very wide range of hot and cold choices - far too much to attempt to try everything!The staff were extremely helpful.All together well worth it's four star status.
Having read a poor review of this hotel, I was unsure what to expect during my stay. Having now returned I do not understand how anyone can come to a bad conclusion with this hotel. It is immaculately presented, the suite I reserved was first class as was the pleasant service experienced from the staff. The food was superb and the fitness suite always available and not crowded.
I highly reccommend this hotel for its friendly atmosphere, location, luxury and value for money.
Very Average - False
My Partner and I stayed here over Xmas 2002 and we were expecting something really nice because of the price and reputation, however, this hotel is a real bum deal.
The staff have no personality, never smile - except the receptionist occasioanally. Their bar has the atmosphere of a wake. The rooms are tatty, we had a broken sink, broken bathroom doorknob, broken shower. The walls between the rooms were so thin, you could hear people snoring next door.
The hallways were only partly carpetted and so there was lots of echos and noise from people coming in late at night.
The facilities were always booked up unless you booked them 24 hours in advanced, they didnt have enough of things.
The breakfast was the best thing about this hotel, apart from checking out that is, nice big selection, although it did give me the runs every day we were there.
The reception was unattended for over 30 minutes on Xmas eve..... The bar lady would never be at the bar and you always had to wait over 10 minutes, then she would ignore you.
Sorry but its the truth - this kind of service and standard would be ok in a 2 star hotel, but not a 4 star, sorry
This is exactly what I wanted in Salzburg. It was very close to the old city and within walking distance of everything. The breakfast was great and the staff was accommodating. I would definitely stay here again.

It frreakin' SNOWED today. I was expecting a day of sunshine but I only got a 20 second preview of blue sky this morning outside of town on the way to Salzburg Zoo. Check out the first pic to see what I thought was the unveiling of the mountains I've been longing to see. But instead I got the beauty of snow for a few hours. It was only light, but so happy I got to see it (and it was the first snow of the season).

He played a few more bars and each echoed with perfect clarity through the still air. It was worth the boat trip just for that.
There were more horns to be heard later, when ...
Finally made it to the place I've most been looking forward to seeing and its a pretty special place. My dreams had involved a bit of snow, but alas, not to be. I saw some on the mountains today during the Sound of Music tour when we went to Mondsee to see the chapel where Maria and the captain were married. Side note: the travel guide complemented me in front of everyone for my beautiful ...

The fortress was filled with displays of muskets, armoury and tools for torture. During renovations, historic Romanesque arches and parts of an even older Gothic Church were discovered and are now on display. The State Apartments had some pieces of furniture, currency, and some medals and an impressive meeting room with ...

It is of course the home of the Sound of Music to us, however the locals (aprox 80%) do not recognise it or have even seen the movie.
From our hotel room window we could see the Hohensalzburg Fortress. This was built in 1077
