Goldenes Theater Hotel
Travel Blogs from Salzburg
... a lot of time to explore, because the next morning it was off to Salzburg! For some reason we found it very easy to get lost around Salzburg, but we've eventually found our bearings thanks to the GPS known as Casey. Seriously, never trust me. I'm no good even with a map. I will get us lost. So we arrived yesterday for our two night stay, and we are in a hotel that's pretty nice. I finally got a pedicure, thank god. The guy at reception recommended ...
... to be a 4 hour long tour of the Alps that ended up being 30 minutes spent looking at a lake. The sad part was we found out the world's largest ice cave was there that we could have gone into had we known. Oh well, it is something to go back and see again! We still had fun! We are now in our hotel packing and going to bed early to leave here at 7 am to head to Germany! I hope it isn't too crazy there with Germany being in the World Cup ...
... were better then Versailles in Paris. Then we went shopping in this district where all of the shop signs are made of beautiful iron, even McDonalds! I got lovely pieces of clothing. I'm glad I packed light! Then we toured the castle here, but after seeing so many gorgeous castles in Paris and Rome, it wasn't very impressive. They had a lot of torture tools on display and a torture room or tour. Ur I ...
... even knew some words. We found out some interesting facts about the film including, that the house in the movie didn't actually back onto the lake, it was a different house where they filmed scenes with the lake, balcony and gardens (which we saw from a distance). Also the Gazebo where Lesiel sang 16 going on 17 has had to be moved 3 times since the movie ...
... beautifully decorated and painted. Using just our sense of direction, we found various paths that we hoped would take us back to the site, and by sheer chance we emerged right opposite the entrance!
A good while was spent cleaning up our bikes as the mud (and cow pats...) had stuck fairly well, but they dried off in the sun while we had a well-earned drink. A very enjoyable ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Goldenes Theater Hotel Salzburg
Good value for your money
I stayed at the hotel for 3 nights. The room is big by European and American standard. We paid only 71 Euro a night (which I thought was a steal). it is very clean and the bathroom is roomy (something that is not that common in European hotels). The breakfast was good - plenty of choices (though coffee was on the weak side). The hotel is a very short walk from the old town and there is a supermarket not far from it. I would recommend this hotel.
This is a great value character hotel. The hotel staff are very polite, except for one staff member who was pregnant, but she gets the benefit of the doubt! The bed was a little hard for my liking (rock hard) the shower was very nice (which is important while on holiday). The breakfast buffet was fantastic and the hotel ooozed character. Just gorgeous in the snow!
I would recommend this hotel for its value and proximity to the lovely old town.
More than Cordial
Although we read a couple so so reviews of this hotel, we loved it. We reserved at the last minute during the Mozart Festival -- it was one of the few hotels that had availability. The room was clean, comfortable, and although not spacious, quite roomy. The staff was excellent and spoke English quite well. We were only a 15 minute walk from the City center and parking was not a problem. We heartily recommed this hotel. Good value for the money.
