... for us, and we found this amazing dish with thin beef and a rocket salad. Really simple and very tasty. This morning Casey got a manicure and we had a relaxing day until it was time for the Sound of Music tour! I was very excited, and Casey even enjoyed the tour even having not seen the movie thanks to our entertaining tour guide. We got to go and see the lake the children and Maria fell into when the Captain arrives home at ...

Last Day in Salzburg

A travel blog entry by moriahbeth


Today was the first day we have slept in past 7 am and saw a little sun shine! It was so nice. We took it easy this morning by walking around the entire city (not hard to do, it is a small place) before heading to our tour of the Bavarian Alps! The tour was very different from what we expected. Only mom and I were on the Alps tour and another man was on a salt mining tour. The combined the two tours together, which was near impossible. So ...

Salzburg Day 2

A travel blog entry by moriahbeth


... go in them. I have no desire to see anything like that. The best part of the night was a concert we went to in the castle tonight where 3 violinists and a cellist played Mozart and other famous composers. A pianist played one beautiful piece with the group as well. We had second row seats that were perfect! The concert was held in a beautiful room in the palace from the 1400's. A perfect end to the ...

Cycling down a mountain

A travel blog entry by blackpoolbelle


Yet another nice day, so we had an "in" morning with a relaxed start & caught up with some jobs. We cycled into Lofer via the river path and stocked up with food from the supermarket, then after lunch we decided to go up the Loferer Alm (mountain) by cable car and rode into town.

As I was feeling intrepid, we decided to take our bikes up and ride down if we could; during a sign language ...

I am also glad to have taken the time each evening to post some impressions of the day as it will help me relive the trip from the comfort of an easy chair some chilly, rainy winter evening while plotting the next great ...

    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

    Good value for money - its got a gym and pool!


    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.

    OK hotel but you deserve better if you are on holiday


    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.

    Coming back for more


    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.

    4.5-Star Hotel


    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.

    Great location classy hotel


    arrived at hotel 5 hours before 2 o clock booking in time.had a room ready for us.double bedroom more like a suite than a bog standard room.staff extremely friendly,nothing to much hassle .location opposite the salzburg congress centre and mirabell gardens(sound of music).just a 5minute walk to the main train station .or bus stop right outside hotel.would i stay here again.without doubt.the best hotel i have stayed in .in all my travels around europe.10 out of 10

    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.

    Good, but not the best


    Stayed at the Crowne Plaza during a long weekend in Salzburg in 2001.
