“Lovely room in a tranquil setting.”
Reviewed 16 June 2012

We stayed at the Haus Gassner-Pirnus last summer because we were looking for budget accomodations near Salzburg. We arrived by train, and we were easily able to find the bus to take us down the Moosstrasse to find this B&B.

When we first arrived, we discovered that Maria is perhaps a bit hard of hearing, as we stood outside and knocked for several minutes. We assumed that she wasn't home, so I called her on my cell phone and she immediately came to the door, apologizing for not hearing us!

Maria is a very nice lady and her B&B is neat as a pin and very charming, with an alpine feel to it. My husband and I and our 2 teenage daughters shared one large room with 3 beds and a lovely bathroom ensuite. We had a beautiful view and a small balcony; I was very happy with the room. Our only complaint was that the gnats were competing fiercely with us for the breakfast meats and cheeses; our girls were a little freaked out over that. I'm a country girl myself, and I don't let a few bugs interfere with my enjoyment (especially if they're harmless little gnats).

For dinner, we walked down the road a piece and found a couple of gasthaus-style pubs; unfortunately, we chose the one that wasn't preferred (as Maria later told us, so it's a good idea to ask her guidance before going). In the morning, we were easily able to catch the bus to downtown Salzburg. Altogether, this is a great place to stay without breaking your budget.

Room Tip: We had to walk up 2 flights of stairs to our room; there are others available on lower levels, so if...

We only stayed in Salzburg for one night. Maria was a lovely host. Our room had a snow capped mountain view, was clean and very warm. The breakfast wasn't great, but enough for a bite to get you to lunchtime. The house is a few seconds walk from the bus stop that goes into town every 15 minutes. We ate dinner at blobergerhof up the road which was good for Austrian fare. Overall, a good, comfortable place to stay if you're on a budget.

Ms. Maria Gassner is a very nice elderly lady who owns the house. Her room price is also very reasonable. Nice country style room with private bathroom. She serves good enough bfast but I think she should invest more on dishes as some looks quite worn out. We asked for a mountain view room and that was what she gave us. Turned out, there are a lot of mountains in Salzburg but her house doesnt face the nice one with snow caps on top. For the price, Haus Gassner is excellent but I personally would prefer a place with a frontal view of the snowy mountain. Location wise, the bus stop is just in front of the house.

Will prefer to stay in: Haus Steiner, Haus Reichl Reiterweg or Hotel-Pension Bloberger Hof (www.bloberferhof.at) or Haus Am Moos

We stayed only 2 nights in Salzburg. Salzburg is a small town and our days were packed but enough to see the town. During that time I would have preferred to stay another night as the mountain view was a beautiful break away from all the city sights we have been visiting.

If you stay in any of the b&bs along Moosstrasse, have lunch in the city proper of Salzburg but dinner along Moosstrasse Street where your house is located. They have a couple of lovely Austrian flavor restaurants on this street that serves good food and good ambience. Walk to or home from restaurant to enjoy the street and the view it provides.
