Well, I'm not sure why people grump about the rooms. We viewed several, and they were large in size with fabulous ceiling heights (we didn't stay in a suite, but I did peep into one, looked amazing!) The rooms are decorated simply, and in keeping with the era of the house (although don't explore the furniture too closely, what we saw was sadly from Ikea, but at least it was of a style to suit the house!). The bathrooms were small but hey, that's typical for Europe, and they were spotlessly clean. This is effectively and bed and breakfast type hotel with the quirky layout of having been converted from an old family home, not a high end purpose built boutique establishment and you get what you pay for.
Yes, the reception hours are limited, wifi access was a bit touch and go, and you'll get bar snacks rather than real food or room service, but we knew we hadn't booked a 5 star chain hotel, so we just worked around it. Good parking, and whilst the hotel is a little way out of Salsburg city, it was really easy to get to and fro just using the public transport system.
Lovely, rural location out the back of the property and there are a couple of little local convenience stores within 3 minutes walk in the neighbourhood. Breakfast was wholesome, staff were lovely, and we found some sensational restaurants nearby. For what it is, for what we paid, and will the added novelty of the Trapp family history, we thought it was great value and would definitely stay again.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Villa Trapp was the residence of the world-famous Von Trapp family, whose life in Salzburg entered history as "The Sound of Music", the most popular musical of all times. The villa is maintained in the style of this period, including 2 luxurious, 60 m² suites. They are exclusively furnished. In the past the Villa Trapp was not accessible to the public. Now you can sleep in the family's rooms and walk on their paths through the villa and the park. This stately building enjoys a quiet location close to the centre of Salzburg, surrounded by the city's largest private park. ... more less
