... full. I finally found a piece of the country that would live on in my heart for the rest of my days. It warmed me to the bones to see him smile with a look of true happiness when a person finally stopped to admire his music. Moving from place to place, sight to sight, will never fill your cup. Sharing intimate moments with people will keep your heart young forever. I have been so lucky to be taken care of here. Max, his parents, and his uncle are kind hearted ...
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 ...
... but haven't really felt a need to use it yet. We arrived to a drizzly wet afternoon in Salzburg and after a quick stroll around our hotel area headed to the laundromat for some much needed clean clothing. I think after free breakfasts and wifi a laundromat across the street is probably one of the best things a hotel has going for it. We also decided to post a few things home to NZ since postage here is quite reliable and not too expensive. We ...

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.
Great place to stay
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.
Overbooked when we arrived Christmas eve
We arrived Chritmas eve and were informed they were fully booked we had booked and paid for the rooms three months previously we were sent to another hotel which was not suitable for our party of six and went back to the renaissance were myself and my husband were put up in a staff room my daughter who suffers with asthma went into a smokers room and the rest were split up very disapointing I have complained and had a unsatisfactory reply I also complained to octopus travel who we booked with . my last email to octopus was ignored
This hotel was better than I could ever had hoped!!! 1.It was cheap 2.It was in the perfect location(train and bus station
