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.

... all the books in gondolas or bathtubs. There was also a very unique book that documented the way Venetians deal with the flooding - from special gumboots to floating shops. Venice is an extraordinary beautiful city and a true romantic at heart. It was the last stop in my amazing Italian adventure. A brilliant experience filled with food, religion, art, fashion and history. I will be back one day to soak it all up again and bring someone to share a gondola with ...
... brands giving off red cinders. Coats beware. It soon became apparent this was a long way from the train. In fact a xmas market. Thank goodness for our roaming data working in Austria and we could access google maps (hallelujah)...and get back to the train. Smelling like barbecue and having walked in pitch black we were thankful for the candles :) sleep was well deserved. We didn't bother with dinner. Just a few ...
... played an old ring toss game before deciding to move on.
Since we had been exploring for a while, we decided to grab lunch at a local restaurant with Italian influences. I tried the seafood and garlic panzerrotto which was easily one of my favorite meals during my trip.
After a hearty lunch, we decided to take advantage of our Salzburg Cards and went beer tasting at the Stiegl-Brauwelt. My favorite beer was a grapefruit infused beer, which was sweet and light. We ...
Toured Mozart's residence which was another free entry with the Salzburg Card.
Marlene and I went shopping, and saw a Xmas store with multi, multi dozens of decorated eggs...crazy. And the guys went to the catacombs.
€37 for a bus tour through lakes and mountains to the Sound of Music locations.
At the end of the tour Glenn got up ...
... thus far. I made Dan get up at some ungodly hour like 8.30am to begin my pilgrimage to all sites Julie Andrews-esque. It was a short cycle along the river to town where our first stop was Mirabellgarten. This was the site for the famous Do-Re-Mi scenes where they march around the fountain and frolic down the garden arch. I had decided that for the day Dan would be playing the role of Maria as I dutifully instructed him to march around ...
