MEININGER Hotel Salzburg City Center
Ranked #27 of 132 Hotels in Salzburg
Reviewed 4 May 2014

We recently stayed at this hotel over the Easter weekend and it was great!

Our family of 5 fit well into the room, but my only complaint about the room itself was that they did not restock the bathroom. They did not put in anymore tissue (the box was clearly empty), nor did they stock the toilet paper or the shampoo/body wash in the shower.

Parking I found was a little pricey, but it was nice and close to the bus route that would take us into the city center. The common areas were clean although we could not find any oven mitts to use for the pans in the oven and I had to use my sweater to take the pans out.

Overall, a great hotel for a great price!

Stayed: April 2014, travelled with family

Hey there!

Thank you very much for your feedback! It is great to hear that you enjoyed your Easter staying with us!
We apologize for not restocking your bathroom, it was definitely not on purpose and it will not happen again, once you decide to visit us in the future - we would be happy to see you again!

Maybe you can try MEININGER Hotels in other destinations as well - like Munich, Vienna, Brussels or Amsterdam.

Best wishes
Your MEININGER Salzburg Team

This hotel had nothing wrong, it's located near the bus stop really near from the center (30 minutes walk to the center), helpful and friendly staff (really perfect English if you don't speak German), the room was really clean and nice, the kitchen and bar areas are neat, good food (not the best but good), well it was a great experience.

The hotel is about 3 miles from the main Salzburg attractions. You would need a car to get to everything, which we had. We had to pay for parking in the garage. Hallways were reminiscent of a horror movie-thinking Red Rum. This is a hostel more then a hotel, which it doesn't say in the description but you do learn upon arrival. Breakfast is extra but was worth it. Its a buffet and was fairly good.

Hello!

Thank you very much for taking time and writing this review of our hotel. We are indeed a mix between a hotel and a hostel, which creates a unique atmosphere and allows us to keep the low prices - however, we are sorry that this concept did not convince you.
Maybe you could try to visit some of our other hotels for example in Vienna - the location of which is very central and they also have more of a hotel feeling.

We would be pleased to welcome you again.

Best wishes

Our family of 5 has stayed at the Meininger Hotel in October 2012 and September 2013. During both trips we traveled with another family who stayed in a separate room. Each time our room was clean, spacious, and sparsely decorated. The staff was friendly and the hotel breakfast was a typical European variety (hams, pastries, breads, fruits, etc...) The hotel is connected to a parking garage (where you pay to park) and a mini-mall with a mall-type eatery and grocery store. On one of the nights we bought food from the grocery store and ate outdoors on the rooftop lounge.

Although the hotel description says "City Center", the hotel is actually a 5-10 minute drive from Salzburg's touristy center.

NOTE: There is a delightful Austrian restaurant down the street from the hotel. If you exit the hotel and follow the sidewalk to the right for a few minutes you'll see a restaurant/beer garden across the street. The food was delicious and the prices were reasonable!

We would recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms with a balcony have a high cement wall which makes it difficult to enjoy the view.

Meininger Salzburg City Centre is NOT in the city centre.
However, it is an easy bus ride from the central train station (Mirabell Gardens and Palace are on the same bus line), and the bus/tram services from there to the main tourist area of town is excellent.

Staff here were wonderful. Very welcoming and helpful.

The rooms and common areas are spacious and clean. The lockers in the dorm rooms are way too small for backpackers, though. They were JUST big enough for me to squeeze my hiking backpack into, if I unpacked it and stacked my things into the VERY thin locker. This is something that could seriously be improved (if the owners of the hotel look at these reviews).

NOTE: I would recommend getting the "Salzburg Card". It helps immensely with transportation and getting into the tourist sights for free.

I stayed at Meininger only for a night but it was a great stay. My friends and I booked a three person room and it was very spacious and clean. Staff were friendly and willing to answer any questions we had and stored our bags for us on the day we had to check out. Ended up eating breakfast at the hotel, had a decent selection. Not the best location but easy to get to by bus (provided you check how late the bus runs). Would recommend this hotel
