... for us, and we found this amazing dish with thin beef and a rocket salad. Really simple and very tasty. This morning Casey got a manicure and we had a relaxing day until it was time for the Sound of Music tour! I was very excited, and Casey even enjoyed the tour even having not seen the movie thanks to our entertaining tour guide. We got to go and see the lake the children and Maria fell into when the Captain arrives home at ...
... 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 ...
... go in them. I have no desire to see anything like that. The best part of the night was a concert we went to in the castle tonight where 3 violinists and a cellist played Mozart and other famous composers. A pianist played one beautiful piece with the group as well. We had second row seats that were perfect! The concert was held in a beautiful room in the palace from the 1400's. A perfect end to the ...
... to St. Peter's Church which is known for, among other things, the beauty of its cemetery. We all enjoyed walking through the cemetery, which was really more of a garden. While I took photos, Steve and the kids climbed up to see the Catacombs. They were from the Roman times.
Onward to the Salzburg Cathedral. It was spectacular. I liked it much better than other, larger, "more impressive" cathedrals I have seen. The plasterwork on the walls and ceilings was beautiful and ...

It was still quite steep so our brakes got a good workout but it was exhilarating to go along with no effort whatsoever; in fact I was quite disappointed when we eventually reached street level.

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
