I recently spent 3 nights here. The hotel is very well located. Within walking distance of many places you will want to visit. Quite an architectural feat to turn this historic building into a modern and comfortable hotel. The rooms are clean and well appointed, but a touch on the small side. I had a regular room but should have...

Dear Tavli, great you had a good time and excellent food in our restaurant. And thank you very very much for your suggestion concerning our first impression. It is very important for us as a small hotel to get in touch with our guests and care for them. I feel really sorry you had another experience. best regards Iris Niederreiter...

The hotel is located in the old town of Salzburg everything is in walking distance. Our room was a bit on the small side, but was perfect. Bathroom is excellent. The service was perfect and the restaurant in the Blaue Gans is first class. Our only "complains": the room was very warm, even at night. But when you are living...

This hotel is 10minutes away from the main train station. We spent around 10euro via taxi going to this hotel. It's seated in the old town and is walking distance from all the places you need to visit here in Salzburg - Mozart Haus, Hohensalzburg, Sound of Music, Love lock bridge, etc. You don't need to go far if you're...

Dear Pam N., you are right. City center, that's were we are. You can't be closer. Even to the car park "Mönchsberggarage" if you are getting to Salzburg by car. Hopefully you enjoyed our city. best regards the arthotel Blaue Gans team

Our family of two adults and two children stayed at the Art Hotel Blaue Gans for two nights during the Christmas holidays. We chose this boutique hotel for its central location on the main street in old Salzburg and because it allowed for the four of us to stay in one room. The most interesting feature about this artsy boutique...

The Art Hotel Blaue Ganz has a wonderful modern interior...perfectly combined with the historical features of the hotel. Despite being very modern it was also very cosy. Each room and floor has different original and quirky artworks decorating the walls. The cavernous La Tavolata restaurant in the cellar is very atmospheric with good food and wine selections. The location is...

This hotel is in a great location for seeing Salzburg. The hotel is clean and tidy. Unfortunately it was let down by rude unwelcoming staff. We expected more from a premium hotel with a premium price tag attached and unfortunately our whole experience was tainted by the inhospitable service. As such we will not return and cannot recommend this hotel....

Amazing location, amazing boutique hotel.... The great thing at that hotel is that you stay at the best place possible, the also have a good breakfast and a (bit expensive) restaurant. There were a parking nearby and thats very hellpfull if you have a car... The reception is bit busy, and you will have to wait more than usual.

We arrived in Salzburg by train and bus, and it was easy to find. Even allowing for the fact that Salzburg is tiny, it's in a great location. The rooms are well designed and modern whilst allowing for the age of the building - so its all a bit quirky but great for it. We were actually there for our...
