Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Markus Sittikus Salzburg
Ten of us stayed and ten would stay again!
The degree and interest the staff took to ensure that my family of ten, ranging in ages from nine to eighty impressed me and touched me. I appreciated their diligence in organizing and informing me of tours and sights or dinner schedules. We stayed over Christmas holiday and thanks to emails from the staff were able to reserve dinners and concerts for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day as well as organized for us all to go to mass late on Christmas Eve. The warm and inviting atmosphere or abundance of cookies and Christmas candies kept us in the lounge or at ease for brakfast, family style regardless of our demands. The breakfast china and choices were memorable. On Christmas we were touched by the gifts we received on our pillows by the housekeeping crew of delightful Mozart music and trinkets. I have never been away from my home at this time of year. The Markus Sittikus was well worth the price.
I stayed for 6 nights over New Year holiday 2004-2005. Reservation was through internet travel site & room was waiting for me (I confirmed via e-mail prior to leaving states). Room was typical single for Europe -- not fancy but pleasant. I liked the location a lot; it was far enough from the center of town to be quiet but a short walk to center of city and Banhof. Definitely not a party place (a plus for me). Open computer in conference room (no charge) was nice touch as was access to health club facilities. Breakfast had many tasty choices (loved decor in breakfast room). Majority of staff friendly and attentive. Only drawback was smoking which I know is common in Europe but I find it a problem. Smoking in rooms around me and smell invaded my room. Fortunately could open window. Were I in Salzburg again, I'd stay there without a second thought.
Stayed at the Markus Sittikus at the beginning of December 2004, for the weekend. On arrival at the hotel we were immeadiately disappointed by the room. Although it was clean, the decor was shabby, straight out of the 70's. The breakfast was adequate, a typical continental cold buffet. The bar in the hotel was small and not always staffed.
The hotel is located a good 15 minute walk from the old part of Salzburg, and therefore is not ideal for a weekend trip.
I personally would noy stay there again.
I would'nt stay here again
This hotel is in an ok location, about 5min to Mirabel Gardens, 10-15min walk to the old town. The room was clean, although our twin was extremely small. We found the receptionist rather frosty, constantly trying to sell us tour packages etc which we found a little tacky. I would only consider this hotel a 3 star hotel - definitely not up to a 4 star standard. I wont choose to stay here again.
Very nice hotel at a decent price
We spent 3 nights here in mid Sept. and found it to be quite pleasant. First thing to remember if you are American, this is Europe and the rooms tend to be smaller. With that said, our room was quite roomy. We had a couch and a balcony that overlooked the garden. For an old hotel, we found it to be in generally good shape. The breakfast was pretty standard for Europe (cold meat and cheese, cereal, breads and rolls). Service overall was quite good. Nice touch of fitness center privileges with the Crowne Plaza right next door. Overall a very good value for the price.
Nice Little Hotel
I stayed at the Flair Hotel Markus Sittikus for 2 nights in July 2004. It is a nice little hotel. It is close to the train station, and just a short walk from the old town. The staff were nice and helpful, recommending tours and concerts etc on check-in. Tours will pick you up from this hotel. Salzburg has tourism down to a science. The Salzburg Card is great, it gets you into everything for about 17 euro for 24 hours and is definitely worth it.
The room was clean and comfortable, although perhaps a bit smaller than I expected, but that was my experience throughout Europe. The breakfast at the hotel was also nice. I would recommend this hotel.
Don't go by the pictures
We researched this hotel in detail. The website is very nice and we thought we would be staying in a spacious building with a nice evening lounge for a night cap and casual conversation. Unfortunately, we were dissapointed when we got there as the building itself is rather small and the room we had, faced the back end of apartment buildings. Rather noisy and no privacy. The bar was often empty, sometimes no bar tender. Basically, the pictures do not truly represent reality. This is a very small hotel with not much going on in regard to the evening hours.
On the positive side, the rooms were very clean and the service was friendly. The breakfast buffet is VERY nice.
If you are looking for a clean place to sleep and a nice breakfast, this is worth the money.
My husband and I stayed here after an overnight trip from Prague. We were so happy to arrive at the hotel. Even though we arrived earlier than check-in time, they stored our luggage for us while we traveled the city. It is a good, but beautiful walk from the hotel to the main part of the city. I would definitely recommend doing the walk if you are up to it, because you really get to see so much of this beautiful city. The hotel was clean and the beds were so comfortable. The staff was so helpful and friendly and gave us great ideas for concerts to see, ways to get around town, and how to get to some of those non-touristy spots! One thing we did while in Salzburg that people should not miss is going up on top of one of the mountains! You can take Bus #25 towards Hellbrunn from the train station. You can then take a cable car up to the top of the mountain and explore around. This was a great thing to do and something we do not regret doing at all.
Don't miss your chance! Overall, I would definitely recommend staying at this hotel. It was a wonderful place to stay.
Do not hesitate!!!
If you are planning a trip to Salzburg then the Flair Markus Sittikus should be your first choice. As a seasoned traveler, I so appreciated all that this family owned hotel had to offer. Our family of five had the most wonderful Christmas in Salzburg in great part due to the Silg (I think this is the correct spelling) family and their team. Even before arrival the staff was exceptionally helpful in answering questions, confirming our reservation and offering suggestions for our visit. The hotel is small and located just minutes from all of the local sites. The location provides quiet and privacy. The rooms were immaculate, certainly large enough and the bathrooms were very modern and good size. The down comforters are a luxury and the beds very comfortable. The breakfast is wonderful and is served until 10 a.m. for late sleepers! On Christmas Eve we were invited for free drinks and cake to celebrate the holiday. We were surprised with a wonderful gift of a print of the city done by a local artist. What a treat! You will not be disappointed in this hotel! I will be glad to answer questions posted to my email. jpalmour
Do not trust this hotel!
The hotel did not have a room that we booked 5 months in advance and confirmed 2 weeks before arrival. The only excuse they offered was that it was "a very busy time." It escaped them that we booked in advance for that reason!When they realized that we were not leaving, they miraculously "found" a dismal room for us. Not the category we had booked, but it had a bed. We had to request a rate adjustment and they appeared put out by the request.Don't do it!

... water. The boats on the lake are all electric to preserve the cleanliness and peacefulness of the area. At one point on the trip the guide gets his trumpet out, and plays a tune next to the cliffside called the Echowand, and depending on the weather the notes echo one or two times - all very funky ...
Today was another day where plans fell through, Brendan nearly died and we ended up freezing at a bus stop in the middle of nowhere- but not all was lost.
We decided a trip into the Austrian Alps would be a nice break from the buzz of Salzburg. I suggested the Lammer Geoge, an hour bus ...

The old(er) part of Salzburg includes most of the historical sites, as well as the shoppe-lined streets, but not as many cobblestoned ones as Vienna. Back to the hotel to check into our room and out to Biergarten die Weisse, where we had the best fresh baked pretzels. Despite having ...

As were several of the places we visited, Salzburg was occupied by the Nazis during WW2. The newer part of town was heavily damaged by Allied bombs.
