So these are a few of my favourite things... I was so excited for Austria, because I knew we would get to do the Sound of Music tour in Salzburg, where they filmed the musical back in 1964. But first, we went to Vienna. We were only in Vienna for one night, so we headed out for dinner and had these amazing schnitzels, maybe the best schnitzels out there. They were thin, and the coating tasted similar to KFC almost, but less greasy. Such a good ...
... to be a 4 hour long tour of the Alps that ended up being 30 minutes spent looking at a lake. The sad part was we found out the world's largest ice cave was there that we could have gone into had we known. Oh well, it is something to go back and see again! We still had fun! We are now in our hotel packing and going to bed early to leave here at 7 am to head to Germany! I hope it isn't too crazy there with Germany being in the World Cup ...
I love it here! We spent the morning on a city tour. There was only one nice person on our tour. I even asked the guide about their medical system to consider living here for a bit. It was poring rain this morning but cleared up to just be cloudy and cold in the afternoon. It is going to be in the high 40's tonight! I had brought no warm clothes and we had to go get some today. We toured gardens at a ...
... delighted to find a tarmac road leading back down to Lofer, but Hubby decided we should ride down the tracks through the forest, so we set off.
My intrepidity (is that a real word?) got less and less as we descended – first through a field of bullocks who eyed me very suspiciously, then the forest path got more and more narrow with bigger and bigger cow-pats/tree roots/big stones and then steps! We ...
... touristy. Easy to ignore... there are plenty of other things to see. We found the Ratthaus...cuckoo clocks...the Salzburg Cathedral...neat stores to look in...neat places to eat. We had a late lunch, so we have picked up stuff for a cold dinner back at the B&B.
Today it is raining...we are just going to bum around the B&B and read and look at pictures and stuff...
It is not ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Stein Salzburg
This Hotel is in a great location, possibly the best you could ask for in Salzburg!
My husband and I spent one night at this hotel on a driving trip through Austria. Overall this hotel is overpriced and short on amenities for Austria. There is no area to park your car when checking in and we parked in a garage two blocks away. We were told when checking in that the hotel had an agreement with a garage (the same distance away as ours) that was 7 euros a night less. We decided to leave our car where it was--so not off to a great start. Our room was pretty small and had been recently refurbished. The bathroom was very nice, with marble flooring, nice fixtures, etc. The furnishings in the room were modern however the drapes and flooring were old and worn and had obviously not been included in the recent update. We toured the city and came back for a drink on the rooftop bar. The view is just lovely and we were able to enjoy it as the sun was setting. There was a nice selection of cocktails, wines and beer. Our waiter was the only sore point. I speak German fairly well and we were able to communicate our orders without problems. However, I sensed that he didn't want to wait on us and we were one of the tables he was least attentive to. I attribute this to either the fact that we are American or that we are late 30's and early 40's. Most of the clientele for this hotel are under 30.
Wir waren für ein paar Nächte im Hotel Stein und waren ziemlich beeindruckt.
We visited Hotel Stein for a couple of nights and were quite impressed by it. It's not your typical 'bath cap and soap baskets next to the sink' hotel and if that's what you're expecting you may be dissapointed.
We vistited the "Steinterrasse Bar" last Friday and I just need to confirm the below situation even I didn't stay IN the hotel! It looked empty from outside (maybe 2 rooms with lights), all visitors seem just to want to join the "Steinterrasse Bar" party. The 2 hotel lifts are - as the complete interior design - from the 50ies or even older (lift sometimes suppose to stuck between 1st and 2dn floor we were told). No security, everybody can walk everywhere everytime in/out the building. At the reception there was a young guy (maybe 20 or so?) who gave me business card of the "hotel". Homepage shows picture movie and a link email address. ...
Woiuldn't stay at the Stein
We arrived late evening: NO staff on duty - not in restaurant or in reception. Lobby in darkness; people wandering in off the street to go to the terrace bar: no checks and no security. It took an hour to contact anyone, and the receptionist - called in from home - was rude and surly.
The corridors were dark and not clean, and were crowded with non-guests - wandering freely. Our rooms had a smell of cabbage.
By now in was midnight: luckily the nearby Hotel Sacher had vacant rooms and we stayed there for one night before booking into the excellent Hotel Bristol for the rest of our stay in Salzburg.
The Kulthotel Stein reminded me of my younger days in staying in youth hostels.
Meal with a view at Stein Hotel
Visited the Stein Hotel for lunch on the top floor Terrase Restaurant in April 2004. Most fabulous place for lunch in Salzburg. 360 degree views of the Altstadt from bar and restaurant, with indoor and outdoor dining. In addition, the daily menu is a bargain. Readers looking for a nice hotel along the Danube in Salzburg should know that the hotel is being totally refurbished and currently only about six rooms are available. The rennovations will be complete some time in 2005 and rooms will be 150 to over 200 Euros.
Stein Hotel is GREAT
I was a music student in Salzburg for many years.Years later my wife & i went back for a Christmas in Salzburg, and stayed at the Stein. It is a weird old place dating back to the middle ages, the floors are all uneven, the elevator a 40's vintage model, and the desk clerk was a drunk, and the place was cold as hell, and the shower facilities were inconvenient.NEVERTHELESS!We had a great time. Out room was spotless, the bed was comfortable, they found a TV for us, and the view out over the Salzach and the Altstadt was stupendous. There were few other guests in the hotel, and the location is the best.It is a charming, quaint and unique place. I understand that in summer they serve meals on the roof. The views must be spectacular.
