Able to sleep in and take it easy today. There is no way the staff still on the Silver at Wurzburg, can exit the ship now as the gangplanks are under. Also the abbey we were in yesterday has been evacuated, the walls they built and extended are in danger of breaking, or may have. Back to Salzburg , had a nice day and weren't rushed. Spent the …
An all day trip, about 6 hours by bus, but we entered the Austrian Alps which are beautiful and huge! Austria has a completely different feel to it from Italy. The mountains are snow capped with green slopes, crystal clear rivers and streams. Our mind is switching from trying to understand a little Italian, to trying to decipher German signs and language.
We roll into Salzburg and the place looks like a dump! This is the home of Mozart and The Sound of Music and we have been told so many good things about the town that we are very surprised. We keep driving and hope the last kilometer turns things around. Well it does and there is an amazing river with green hills, a dome cathedral in the distance …
Hi everybody! For our two week vacation this year we decided to go to Slovenia and Croatia. These are 2 countries that have become quite popular with Europeans again - as they were prior to the wars and other events that separated the former Yugoslavia into several countries. We thought it would be a good time to go - before these countries became …
... in and have one of each, an apple one and a cheese one. Also very delicious, however I think our eyes were bigger than our stomach and we had to call defeat. We then made it over to 'Old Town' where we walked the maze like streets looking in little shops selling marionettes and millions of carefully painted egg tree decorations. We were constantly reminded by postcards and badges that "AUSTRIA DOES NOT HAVE KANGAROO'S" Kathryn Ya ya ya ... I love ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Radisson Blu Hotel & Conference Centre Salzburg
Nice Hotel-don't like the location
I stayed at the Renaissance Salzburg March 24, 2005. Very nice hotel. Modern rooms - some of the best I've stayed in. I would stay in this hotel anywhere in the world. But it's not close to the old city. You either have to take a cab or learn the bus system. If I go back to Salzburg I will stay closer to the old city area.
I was traveling with a large group. The hotel was very efficient with our bags and having our rooms ready. If you're on a group tour and this is the hotel they picked - be happy. Like many hotels in Europe this hotel is using duvets instead of a sheet and blanket - sleep naked with the window open - it gets very hot in the room. Breakfast buffet was ok.
Fantastic.... Great Reception Staff & Room Service
The hotel is fantasic. The staff are very friendly and are happy to arrange tours and dinner reservations for you at any time. The breakfast is also amazing (the best room service breakfast i've ever had) and the bed is absolutely massive!!! Would recommend to anyone traveling to Salzburg!
We stayed at the hotel as part of a package, visiting the Christmas Markets in Dec 2004. The room was large, clean and well appointed and the staff very efficient. We dined at the Blue Goose, following the recommendation of a previous posting on this site, and we were not disappointed. The hotel reception made the reservation for us - watch out for visiting Krampuses, however, at this time of year - the restaurant was taken over for a short while!
Pleasently surprised. Stayed here on a boozy weekend away, and the location couldn't be better. Huge room (pity that the air con wasn't working but windows opened easily). Huge bed. Good bathroom. V clean. All staff excellent except one horrid woman in charge of overseeing breakfast who took exception to a group of us having the temerity to want to eat within 15 minutes of the end of breakfast. Cearly aimed at a business crowd, and not intended to be romantic, but you could do worse.
Not a nice reward...
We stayed here on Renaissance/Marriott points and must have received a different room type than previous reviews. We had connecting rooms both of which were worn, stained, dirty and even though designated non-smoking.. were smelly. We were only there for 1 night. I would hate to think the hotel intentionally awards lower grade room types to those who continue to support the awards programs... we were there early August 2004.
Great place to stay
Stayed here with my family in July 2004. large clean rooms in a modern setting. Friendly helpful staff. One block from bus station, so it was easy to get to the Old town shopping and sight seeing area. Had a great dinner at a near by Italian restarant.
I stayed here for 2 nights in mid June 2004. It is not in the main historic part of Salzburg, but that is ok, because it is a 2 minute walk from the train and bus station. So, just walk up there and take a 10 minute train downtown, or a 25 minute walk. The hotel was very modern, like a nice US hotel, with all of the modern comforts I am used to. Like an ice machine, fridge, big bathroom, comfy beds, big room, nice breakfast,etc. The staff was so nice and helpful and drew maps for us. They couldn't have been sweeter to us. The hotel is much cheaper than staying right downtown, but it is still very easy to get downtown. I will stay here when I come back to Salzburg. Oh yeah, eat at the Blue Goose restaurant. Ask the hotel about it, they recommended it for us and it was the best meal we had during the whole 2 week vacation.
Great place to stay
I stayed here with my granddaughter in March, 2004. The rooms were nice and clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. The location was great. I will stay here again.
