Reviewed 27 May 2014

Compared to other hotels this was one of the cheapest available but ample room for two, clean basic kitchen, spacious bathroom, public transport nearby (it's a 35 minutes walk to the city center), friendly staff, free Wifi. One remark, towels aren't automatically changed, so you need to ask if you want them changed. It was a bit warm in our room but It was 28°C outside, so let's not complain...

Nice clean place. Close to the bus station. Quite a few buses pass through that. #4 for reaching the city center and #23 to reach the train station. Friendly receptionist and quite helpful. Also email response was very quick. Reasonable price. Value for money

We stayed here for 4 nights, and we really loved the place. Nice, clean, comfortable. The bathroom was spacious and the kitchen was equipped with basic features. The staff were extremely nice and helpful. The location is OK; it takes about 10 mins from main station or city center if you take bus. There's one supermarket nearby (5-min walk). We'll definitely choose here next time we visit Salzburg!

The rooms have kitchen facilities and basic amenities; they are clean, comfortable and reasonably spacious. There are no common areas, but there is a small parking lot. Getting to the center by bus is easy and quick. the staff is smart and friendly. Just a negative note: We had a bad experience in the nearby restaurant recommended by the A.P. (Gasthaus Rangie vormals Rangierbahnhof). We went there for dinner in April 24, 2014: 4 adults, a child of 4 months and a girl of 4 years. We were escorted into a dining room and we had menus. There were three or four more tables free. After 20 minutes, the owner (I assume), after talking a bit with a couple arrived after us (but already served), tells us that there had been a mistake and we had to leave. My wife was nursing and it was already nine pm, so I asked if there was another table in the restaurant, and the owner offered us, as the only solution, a table in the smoking room (with my wife who was nursing!). I can’t remember a situation worse than this in a restaurant.

This is a heritage building converted into a nice hotel. The staff here work only until noon, around 1.30PM. But our check in was well planned, though we reached around 8 in the night. They had a printout sticking on the main door with all the check in related info for us to have a comfortable stay.
The rooms are cosy and nice with free WIFI, and a small kitchen. The staff at the reception were very helpful in helping us plan our sight seeing and handling random queries.
The only sour point is the location of the property, its slightly away from the main buzzing centre of Salzburg.

We are currently staying at an apartment in this complex. Having pre paid we noted we cannot
leave and recommend you read all reviews. The apartments are not flats/apartments but single rooms, very small and not adequate for more than one person or couple, certainly not families. The block is on a main road and very noisy from the road and from adjoining apartments. We would not return under any circumstance!

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the road

Overall, we had a very good experience with our staying at Ante Portas in Salzburg. We were impressed even from the moment we booked the room, as we were sent an email with the instructions for reaching the hotel from the airport or train station. It really helped us a lot :).
Rooms: rooms are not very big, do not expect a real apartment, but still we loved it very much. It has a bed, TV and a full equipped kitchen: fridge, microwave, pots, glasses, plates and so on. The bathroom is in the room and it is quite big. The room is heated through the floor, so it is very warm and nice. Please pay attention to the fact that the bathroom is not equipped with soap and shower gel, so bring it from home. They do have enough clean towels.
Location: very good. It has a supermarket, a bank, a restaurant and a bakery at maximum 5 minutes of walking. The bus station is 3 minutes of walking and it offers connections to the city center and train station. We got in the city center in 15 minutes, so it is quite close, but make sure you check the schedule of the bus, which is showed in each bus station. Sometimes they come at more than 10 minutes. I would also mention the view: it is in front of a hill and the area is so nice and quiet, it's like in the mountains :).

Hotel staff: very friendly. We were very impressed to find in the room all the information we needed: a map with the touristic points to visit, instructions on how to get to the city center, to the supermarket, restaurant and bakery and info about the WI-FI, which worked pretty well. We were also welcomed and everybody was very nice to us.

You need to take into account that the reception is not 24 h opened and it does not offer room service or room cleaning. We were aware of this and it didn't bother us.

Overall, a very nice staying, we would definitely get back.
