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

... The lake was lovely today. The further out you go the clearer the water it was lovely and warm towards the surface and cool but not cold underneath. It was very easy to swim in no current no waves no salt I reckon given enough time I could swim the whole lake but it would take while I don't think you could rush anything here! The park was fun. ...
... is I got it wrong again! We are not packing up tonight we have one more day here, hurrah! The best thing about this site is it is very easy to relax. No urgency, people pottering around, kids riding their bikes about or jumping off the pontoon into the lake. The day drifts on, its hot in the sun, warm in the shade and cool in the lake but not cold. The water is clear and shallow enough to play in but deeper at the end of the pontoon to jump ...
... the kids are sheltered living where and how we live. The idea of being homeless has been surprising and disturbing to them. They were surprised by the number of people in Paris and here in Munich. They've also pointed out that at least some of them are performing or doing things to earn their money as opposed to just sitting there and asking for money. It's been interesting to watch them as they experience the big cities.
... Van Trapp Family from The Sound of Music as you can guess the house is not the one you see in the movie, as if you didn't know. But it is beautiful. we have basically one wing which is two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a sitting room. Signs say they were Hedwigs and Elenores. Not sure if they were tho.
... to the top of the Jakobskirche for the view of the city, and the town looks very pretty with snow. As it gets dark and cold, we once again hang out in my WG, but now Aaron is around and so we all eat some Stollen and have a good ole time eating some frozen pizza (hey at least I do know how to heat it up in the oven) Once it gets late the parentals go to sleep at the hotel and Andrea, Stephen, Aaron, Martin, and I all go to the local bar for a ...
