Travel Blogs from Salzburg
The city of Salzburg has always been very special to me. It is where my very favorite movie was filmed- "The Sound of Music." My love of this movie may seem kind of hokey, but it was the first movie I remember seeing at the age of 5, back in Newfoundland at a movie theater on Henry Street with my mother, my grandmother and my Aunt Noanie. It was …
... 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 ...
... Alps on the horizon. On our way down, we made a pit stop by the abbey which was so famous in the Sound of Music and I even recognized several points where scenes were shot.
We ended the day by grabbing some Weiner Schnitzel at a local restaurant and finding a small Adoration Chapel, praying for a few minutes, then going to another empty church and singing the Divine Mercy Chaplet. Yet another incredible day in ...
... it has amazing views of the alps. Before the tour. we went to a cemetery in the city which has mozart's sister buried there. They also have 'catacombs' in the cliff. They are incorrectly called catacombs because no one was buried inside. It was a little eerie inside.bit was pretty much a few caves in the rock that were used as churches. After the tour finished we bought some strawberries from a market stall and weaves our way through arcades to the ...
Today we had a free day in Vienna, which we actually used to go to Salzburg!! Pretty certain this was the day I was looking forward to the most out of the entire trip because it meant Sound of Music tour!!!! Up early at 6am and left around 6:45. Thankfully the train station was about 200m from our Hostel so we Didn't have a long walk at all. Bought our tickets (not cheap, about 95 euro each) Our train was at around 7:30 so we grabbed a bite to eat ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Sheraton Salzburg
We came to Salzburg for the Christmas markets and a bit of shopping. Thought this was a lovely hotel, friendly staff and good size room and bathroom with bathrobes. What you would expect from a Sheraton, but reasonably priced through hotels website. It is a ten minute walk over the river into the centre of Salzburg where all the markets are and I would have preferred to be a bit more in the thick of it, especially when going out at night.
Great Hotel, Great Service
Everything about this hotel was fantastic. The service was top notch. The restaurant had great food with a nice wine selection and a relaxing atmosphere. We enjoyed the quiet spacious hotel room with a very comfortable bed. The hotel is within walking distance of most city attractions. We would most definitely stay at this Sheraton again.
Beautiful friendly hotel
We stayed for two nights at the Sheraton Salzburg in May. The rooms were beautiful. The bathroom was large and spotless. The location backs onto the Mirabell Palace Gardens. It was very easy to take buses from the corner all over Salzburg. The staff was very helpful. I would stay here again. Salzburg is the most beautiful city. I would love to stay on extended vacation here and I don't even like scenery!
Love this hotel!
My sister and I stayed here during one of our "annual sister bonding trips" and we absolutely loved it! The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, our room was lovely and well-appointed, and we loved the location and walking through the Mirabell gardens on our way into and out of the touristy parts of the city. Can't wait to go back...
I would highly recommend this hotel. The atmosphere is wonderful, curtious staff, the food is excellent and the rooms are pretty & spotless. Will certainly stay here again this summer! VERY VERY nice!
A great deal and a great city
This is one of the nicer Sheratons in Europe and certainly the best value in the city during the Christmas holidays. Th hotel is close to the old city and the staff was friendly. The breakfast buffet was very good and the hotel is completely renovated with parking below. This is definately a deal if the price is right.
This is my favorite hotel during our recent trip to Europe. The staff were very friendly, and the room is NICE. We were told by the staff that these rooms were recently renovated, and it shows. The hotel is next to Mirabelle, a very nice place to stroll and take photo.
The walk to the old town takes about 20 minutes. It's a nice walk if the weather is nice. It was pretty windy when we were there though. You could also take a bus or a cab ride.
This is a really fine hotel. I stayed in March 2004 for a conference right next door in the Conference Centre. From a 6th floor room at the rear there is a great view of the Kurpark with people walking and cycling through. The hotel is excellent in almost every respect - very large rooms, good food, comfortable bar and lounge, attentive staff, complementary newspapers. TV channels are the normal European mix with news in English. There is the usual niggle with the cost of phone calls, and the Sheraton seems to be one of the hotels which charges for credit card calls (I didn't try this), but not a lot else to worry about. I enjoyed being able to chose when to speak English and when to practice my German - in some other hotels the staff insist on speaking English. If you want to go to the old town, it's nearly a mile away, but it's a pleasant walk along the river past some really nice cafes and a good view of the castle. Traffic on the route to the airport can be busy so allow plenty of time for your flight - there's a taxi rank right outside.
We stayed here in February, 2004. This property was wonderful! It was close to everything - airport, gardens, old town, shopping and much more! The rooms were nicely decorated, very clean and quiet. The restaurant and lobby bar were great and had the most friendly staff! We would definately stay here again and are recommending it to everyone we talk to!
This is a lot better than most Sheratons. The rooms are very large by EU standards - probably 40 square metres. They have no local style to them, but my Executive room had been renovated in a pleasant red and gold scheme. Bathrooms are excellent, with a bath and separate shower cubicle. BBC World available on the TV. Robes / slippers / umbrellas are provided in the Executive rooms - possibly not in the Classic rooms but they are all the same size. The breakfast buffet was expensive (Euro 21) but large. The staff were highly impressive - uniformly pleasant, charming, English speaking and keen to help. It is a very pleasant 10 min walk from the hotel through Mirabelle park and across the river to the old town. I recommend it if you would prefer a large modern room - the old town hotels appear smaller and more chintzy. My only negative is that the hotel appeared virtually empty - there were probably 10 other guests with us at breakfast and the bar was virtually deserted for our three days. I can only assume that the conference centre next door had nothing on! The lobby and bar also suffer from an overdose of 1980's gold furnishings and chandeliers! Overall, however, I have absolutely no complaints and would happily stay there again.
