I stayed here for three nights. Everything was simple. First from the station its a left turn and straight all the way for 15 minutes and your there.Use the code to get in .and a warm welcome. If you arrive late as I did notes with clear instructions as to what to do and guides you to your key room and wonderful experience.
Wonderful decoration , quiet relaxed. Kitchen to all guests ( there are only about 7 rooms) You have fridge with your room having an individual shelf. Self service drinks and coffee and snacks on honor system . Great bread shops just around the corner so getting fresh rolls for breakfast is easy. The atmosphere leads to guests sitting and sharing experiences with each other .
The host Reinhold , great guy to know , helpful and useful to see the real Salzburg through his eyes. Let him talk you into visiting the brewery, its worth it and a great experience.
The location of Arte Vida is ideal just off the "tourist" line but two minutes over the bridge and your there.
In a "Mozartkugel" this is the place to stay.

Stayed in Arte Vida on my way to the Alps. It was a perfect experience in a nice room with friendly and helpful staff in the guesthouse. The location is perfect in the center of town and walking distance from the places you want to visit. Highly recommended!

Stayed 3 nights in arte vida. Perfect location in the Center of Salzburg, walking distance of everything. Host Reinhold is very friendly. Room Marco Polo was perfect, Nice little bathroom. As my flight left in the evening, i could stay in the afternoon in their beautiful Lounge to work a bit. Across the street is L'osteria, lovely italian restaurant.

we stayed 4 nights in the loft apartment in this guesthouse in Dec and it was a comfortable place. The apartment is big and well furnished. It has kitchen and a large living area. There are skylights/roof window and you sleep under the moonlight !!! The bed are firm and comfortable. The location is within walking distance to all the main attractions on both side of the river. You can walk to the main train station if you do not have any big luggage. We will stay there again if we return to Salzburg

Room Tip: The loft apartment has kitchen. There is a common living area for guests staying in their rooms, li...

Just wanted to say how pleased we were with our stay at Arte Vida in January 2014. We were a party of 8 people (2 families with 2 adults and 2 teenagers each). Location was excellent with great views of the Old Town. The Old Town is a convenient 3-4 mins walk across one of the many bridges. We stayed in the Loft apartment (5P including extra mattress) and the Studio apartment (3P). Both apartments were clean, very comfortable and self contained. The studio apartment had clothes washing facilities. Reinhold is a fantastic host who was only too willing to show guests where they should go for meals and sightseeing and provided us with a handy travel booklet showcasing the city's highlights. The property is a mere 8 euro taxi charge from the central station and checking in when arriving out of office hours was smooth and hassle free. I definitely recommend this hotel for visitors to Salzburg.

We really liked it, but it is not for everyone. It is not elegant, and the oriental yoga theme takes a little getting used to, especially for us, the incense. There is no large fancy breakfast meal. The common room is occasionally a bit public. But none of these interfered with pur enjoyment. I saw some who complained of noise and heat and the shower. We were in Alhambra, which is away from the street and quiet. We were also there in winter, so heat was not an issue. And the swing out shower was fine. In fact we thought the shower itself was excellent.
What we liked best was the friendly and helpful host Reinhold, the ability to make our own meals, including breakfast, although you can get tea juice, coffee/tea for 1 to 2 euros per item, and the fabulous location.
So if you are like us, not too fancy and like to prepare our own meals, Arte Vida is an excellent choice.
