... more. More art, more food, more music. Yesterday in Salzburg when I was wandering the depths of the old city I found a gypsy man playing violin. I heard the sound many streets away and followed the music to him. I sat in the rain listening to him play for nearly 20 minutes and was moved to tears from his sad songs. We were the only two people nearby. I dropped my spare change and thanked him for his music. For the first time since my arrival in Austria, my ...
I've been waiting for this day since we booked the trip, the tour of eagles nest. We woke to a mostly sunny day with a few clouds, so that was a good start. It was as good as I expected and all really enjoyed the tour. We took the lift up to eagles nest and crammed in like sardines. We were lucky, mostly sun with a few clouds but a bit chilly being so high up. The views were ...
After our big breakfast, thankfully we are doing heaps of walking as these breakfast are huge. We walk to the old quarter and come across some beautiful fruit and veg markets. Fatty Vanda had to try a sachetorte cake( so so), like everything that you think is going to taste yummy is not so. Di and I went ...
Our flight was at night so Ron decided a free triple scotch would be ok and did a treat. We thought we were smart as booked seats with a spare in the middle and hoping no one would sit in and we were lucky so will see how smart we are on the way back! At last got it working again, not sure for how long. We arrived in munich at 5.30 and meet our driver to go to Salzburg, so arriving there about 8ish. Booked into Achat Hirschen hotel, was a good pick. As early we walked to the ...
... Hubby and the elderly German husband played with our satellite dish in sign language! The upshot of their “conversation”, after much waving, pointing and testing of wires was that it was sadly too small to get anything from the English satellite, and it once again got packed away in its bag, unused.
Tea was a take-away pizza from the camp restaurant, €8.80 worth of a very tasty vegetable one.

Historical Traveler Reviews NH Salzburg City
Great hotel & location
Enjoyed good quality service in well maintained solid building, very deserving of its four star classification. Double room with bath was large and very clean. Hotel is located close by a pedestrian promenade and it's about a 10 minute walk to the old town center across the bridge. A number of cafes & restaurants are found along the pedestrian street.
Free parking is provided in the hotel lot.
An abundant hot breakfast buffet was included in the room rate (75 euros/night).
Would definitely stay there again!
Was very good for the price
We stayed there ofr one night on April3 3rd with a 2 year old. The room was very spacious--I would say very big-for 59 Euros per night. there was plenty of desk and closet space. The staff were very nice and helpful. My husband wasn't feeling well-so my 2 yr old and I went to have dinner by our selves(they have a restaurant)-halfway through she got cranky and I had to leave--they reheated the food and insited on delivering to our room at no extra cost. So we were impressed.
Good hotel, lousy service
This hotel promised to be a 4-star, and the hotel itself probably is, but the staff certainly weren't! We found them surly and unhelpful. It was absolutely pouring with rain and I asked if I could borrow an umbrella. This request was met with a roll of the eyes heavenward and lots of huffing and puffing before I was finally passed one from the rack behind the desk. On the day we were due to leave, we asked if our luggage could be locked away as we were due to be picked up after lunch. We were told no, there was no room. I had to get very stroppy before they finally stalked off to find a key, and allowed us to put our bag in the luggage room, which was almost empty! Accommodation was fine and food was ok. Location was good, but I won't be recommending this one to anyone, unless they have a complete change of staff!
Nice and central hotel
We spent 3 days in Salzburg and in this hotel. The people at the reception are very nice and helpful. In addition the hotel has its own parking lot and underground parking (against fee). The rooms are beautifully furnished, also in a single room is a large double-size bed. Unfortunately it is very loud, so you cannot sleep at night with open windows. An air conditioning system is missing, however a heating, which is actually not used, since it is also so warm in the rooms enough. The bath is largely and has a bath tub. The breakfast is plentiful. There are eggs e.g. cooked or blow crescents, fruit salad and Muffins. The breakfastbuffet is first-class. Only the operation at the bar leaves to desires. Altogether a good hotel, with not the best rooms but a good breakfast.
We did a last minute booking for a room at the NH Hoteles. Not knowing a lot about the hotel, except what we read on this site, we were pleasantly surprised at the spacious room and delicious, abundent breakfast provided by the hotel. The room had a separate children's bed which was perfect for our daughter. The hotel is a short walk to the altstadt. We will definitely stay here again!!
Great hotel but no air conditioning!!
We arrived during the heat wave of August 2003 and call it "The week we melted in Austria". There was no air conditioning but the hotel did give us a fan. They were most helpful with directions and booking events. The high priced breakfast was a shock, 26 Euros for two breakfasts? We found a lovely little cafe just down the street. The staff are multilingual and most spoke 3-5 languages. It was a treat to stay here. I'd recommend it highly though I'd try and get breakfast included.
Excellent friendly hotel!
My husband and I stayed at the Astron in November 2002 and loved it! We were warmly welcomed, our room was ready and waiting and the staff could not have been nicer. The room was big enough, nice sized bathroom and everything was spotlessly clean. Bed was comfortable and clean, room service was excellent and very reasonably priced and the breakfast had a great choice and plenty available. Hotel has a lovely foyer/cafe/bar area where you can enjoy coffee and pastries and lovely Austrian beer! The Hotel is very centrally located, close to many major attractions but still quiet and very safe. Not once did we feel unsafe. I would most definitley go back here again, hope to do so next spring in fact! Recommended!
Beware...breakfast not always included in the price!
The hotel is very nice. Wonderful rooms, and helpful staff. BUT! When we checked in, they pointed at the breakfast room and said, "breakfast is in there, from 7 to 10 a.m" . No mention was made of any additional charge. No "room numbers" were taken as you went in, people just came, ate and left. We have stayed at hotels all over Europe, and breakfast has been included in the room rate at all the hotels we stayed in. When we checked out, they asked if we had eaten breakfast. We told them we had -- and they added 26 Euros PER DAY onto our bill. When we complained that we had been told where to have breakfast, and not been told it cost extra (!), they said, "Sorry, not included at this room rate." We were never told, and it really bugged me. They should have told us when we checked in that breakfast was available, but at an additional charge.
I have stayed there on two different occations and I wouldn't hesitate to pay a new visit. Last time was spring 2003. I stayed there for three nigths. Hotel is clean, modern and the rooms are spacious. Also bathroom is nice, though I don't want to stand in a bath when taking a shower.Staff is friendly and breakfast is delicious and gives a good start for a day. Hotel is situated 3 min walk from touristic area. Couldn't hear any noise in my room. Beer is cheap in the bar but beware those overprized spirits! ; )
Impressed by solid architecture
I arrived late in town and looked for accomodation, so the centrally located Astron hotel came to the rescue. Getting tired in the bar with oversight on the mall was a pleasure, and after climbing the solid stairs the room impressed me with its space and silence.The abundant breakfast buffet further added to the good impression, so I can recommend the facility to guests who look for luxury at a reasonable price.Seems to be preferred by Americans.
