Crowne Plaza Hotel Salzburg - The Pitter
Travel Blogs from Salzburg
Our last day in Munich and my last day for a while to feast on delightful breads and alpine cheese! We ate our fill whilst we caught up with Lili on Skype - just love this aspect of the technological age; you can have a video conversation and no one bats an eye lid - in fact you get knowing and accepting smiles as others understand you're …
Yes we are here where there are many sights that are on the Sound of Music. Not that our guide seemed to like that idea much. They prefer to see this as the birth place of Mozart
We headed out of Munich in the pouring rain, the most rain we have seen since the heavy downpour at Covent Garden in London. We were headed to a village that is …
Day 8 - Today was a driving day and we were off to Salzburg.
The weather in Europe this spring has been COLD and not typical for the region. Although it has been sunny, the temperatures have been ranging from 11-18 degrees. On e day in Budapest it reached 28 degrees, but today in Vienna it is going to a high of 16. Tomorrow in Salzburg the low …
7:17am and we are at Salzburg station waiting for a train to Munich!
Salzburg has been lots of fun. On Saturday we spent the morning
wandering around the old town, very quaint and lots of cute shops. My
Christmas shop from 6 years ago had moved across the street and combined
with an Easter Egg shop, so although it was still good …
We are at the train station waiting to leave for Salzburg. I tried to board a train that was going to Vienna. Silly, that is where I now am! A conductor saved me from getting on the train, sitting down and then waiting to go no where! Vienna was great! More tonight. It is tonight, here is more. The train trip was fun. We boarded the train in plenty …

Enjoyed the room, nice and quiet. Food excellent in the restaurant. All good except for the single beds - comfy and slept well but single.

Historical Traveler Reviews Crowne Plaza Hotel Salzburg - The Pitter
We stayed here for two nights and had a fairly good deal from online - we will have to take the tip of the other reviewer and see if we can get it booked directly next time.
The hotel is next to the railway station and is convienient for the airport, the walk to the old part of the city is 15 mins (timed it several times and walking at a brisk pace). My room was tiny, the air conditioning did not work which was reported but despite the hotel saying they had fixed they did not, as I had a south facing room and temp was in the mid 30's during the heat of the day, it was difficult to sleep at night. You could not leave window open as noise seems to carry from the streets below. I could not open the bathroom door fully as the toilet would get in the way it was so small, if I was a larger person I would have struggled with the over bath shower. Service in the lounge bar was painfully slow, the barman would disappear for 15 mins at a time, the garden area was nothing like the hotel web site photo's much less attractive, its not really a garden more of a quadrangle at the back of the building, it also closes at 10pm. Overall I would not recommend this hotel, do as someone else suggests spend a little more and stay at the Sacher, this is too much like a business hotel (across road from congress centre) if you are on holiday you deserve a hotel that does not remind you you have to go back to work!
Excellent hotel in a good location
If you can afford the price, it stands as a good starting point to visit Salzburg.
We have now stayed at the Crowne Plaza in Salzburg ("The Pitter") on two occasions and will be going back again as we enjoyed it so much.
I spent 2 nights in this hotel in Dec-04. As with other hotels in the Holiday Inn Group, I enjoyed a special rate at €70,00 by paying in advance. So I always recommend the others to book a Holidat Inn hotel at the official website and pay in advance whenever possible. About the hotel, it located midway between the train station and the city centre; both at about 15 minutes' walking. If you're gonna spend more than one night in Salzburg, I would suggest you to reserve a hotel near the old city (where most of the tourists' sights could be found); but if you are gonna spend only one night in Salzburg, then it may be the hotel for you. For my both nights in Salzburg, when I returned from the old city to the hotel, I found that there were nearly nobody on the street at about 20:00!!! While I'm not sure whether the general public order in Salzburg was good, this was sufficient for me to concern about. The hotel itself was good, with grand lobby and restaurant. The room was big and the facilities inside were excellent. The staff were generally courteous and helpful, yet I found one of them a little bit rude. This might be due to that I was not dressed up as a businessman but a knapsack-traveller. Anyway this hotel was more like a business-hotel rather than a holiday-hotel. In conclusion, I would say this hotel deserses 4.5-star, rather than 5-star as it's rated.
Great Hotel In A Great City!!!
Was in Salzburg last week with my wife. Stayed 4 nights at the Crowne Plaza. Got a good accomodation package from our Swiss travel agent. Hotel is well located in between the train station and the Mirabel Palace. The old town is a pleasant 10-minute walk away or 2 bus-stops if one prefers to use public transport. Our room was very nice and well-equipped. The decor is plush and the beds very comfortable. The bath was very spacious as well. The receptionists and hotel staff were very friendly, efficient, helpful and very responsive to our requests for bedroom slippers and extra toiletries. They also gave us quite a few tips on restaurant recommendations. The buffet breakfast was also excellent. I would stay at the Crowne Plaza if I were to visit Salzburg again.

OK Hotel in Fabulous Salzburg
We stayed in one of the nicer rooms in this hotel in Nov 2003. We were very impressed with the size of the room and the furnishings were quite plush. It was a nice walk through the Mirabell Garden into Salzburg, though perhaps it would have been better to be staying closer to the centre. Salzburg is, however, easy to navigate and I love to walk! I am sure anyone would have a fabulous time in this breathtaking city.
