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.

... and had the gift of adding cultural references from both. He was quite the lovely character, in a gracious sort of way, and made the trip. We learned quite a bit about Salzburg and its history, as well as information and settings for the film. I remember when I saw the Sound of Music years ago, I loved the music. Well, and the love story of course. In recent years, when Mom was still with us, and in her house - the movie happened to be on TV on New Year's Day. Not sure why, as ...
... other items. Some wearing traditional dress, and many in very tailored skirt-suit combo. Many men wore a hat; and I saw a lot of lederhosen. I learned yesterday that this part of Austria has, in history, been mainly part of Bavaria over time. Although the Salzburg area has been part of both Austria or Bavaria over time, the most recent Austrian connection is only for the past two hundred years. Our guide told us that when booking train tickets in ...
... High and by the end of the day, the students were wearing their US shirts!! After the classroom visits we met with the principals of KuMax, Maria Ward and Cleveland High School! It was lovely! We discussed formal things about the GAPP exchange and had some coffee and cake. The evening was spent at a student performance at Maria Ward Realschule. The play was about the life of Maria Ward - she originally came from England. As a catholic nun she sought out to educate the ...
... for a walking tour. This is the famous composer Mozart's birthplace so lots of touristy Mozart" nick nacks". The weather was warm / hot with temp 30-31 degrees. Would have been ok if my feet/ ankles weren't throbbing & swelling. Have to find the voltaren before another walking tour tomorrow in Graz. Enough of ailments. Our tour took us through the old town where we met our tour director after lunch who walked (not again) back hotel to check in. ...
After breakfast in the hostel (I can't get used to meat and cheese at breakfast, but fortunately they have some cereal and bread rolls and jam) we go to the station and catch the 8:27 to Salzburg. The trip is not particularly interesting through mainly farmland until we get to Salzburg itself which sits in a valley on the river Salzach surrounded by low hills. The early clouds had lifted by this time leaving a clear blue sky and it was ...
