“Exquisite castle on the hill”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2014

My husband and I arrived weary from nearly 12 hours of travel. Our taxi was immediately greeted, warmly and efficiently by an outstanding staff. We were encouraged to retire to the Winter Garden for a complementary beverage while our luggage was whisked to our room. That wonderful opening act set the stage for a simply lovely three day stay. The room was beautifully appointed; the bath was gorgeous and thoroughly modern. The wellness center was a little small but also brand new and well staffed. The food was excellent. But perhaps the best part was the location. The hotel is perched on the cliff overlooking Salzburg. The concierge provides tickets to the lift in the Museum of Modern Art that swiftly drops you right into the heart of old city. We never needed a car and easily walked everywhere. When the day of sight seeing ended, we took the lift back up the cliff and strolled to our cliffside home. I would highly recommend this hotel.

We loved our stay, from the moment the taxi dropped us off, we knew it was special. The staff are by far the best in the world, everyone made us feel special. We had a standard room, which I would rate as superior, comfortable bed & linen. The location is spectacular our evening walks were wonderful the view amazing. Would we stay again, absolutely , we didn't want to leave.

Away from the bustle and noise of the city centre, but a particularly pleasant walk through the woods and down an elevator if you want to spend some time in the city without having to drive and find parking.A stunning location overlooking Salzburg.

Service is very personal and attentive. We had a beautiful room with a vast bathroom, although it was one of the more expensive rooms. Dining was fairly formal, and rather expensive for the quality, but much more appealing than going out in the evening.A special place with outstanding service.

We just spent one night here so it's hard to give a thorough and fair appraisal. Location has got to be one of the best anywhere in the world. We were in heaven on arrival, sitting out in the sun on one of the beautiful terraces overlooking the city and enjoying complimentary refreshments.

Our room was spacious and lovely but faced the woods and so it was dark and a bit of a disappointment. Next time I would ask for a sunnier view room (but price I'm sure would be higher).
The bathroom was outstanding: spacious, all marble, high end fixtures and a powerful dual spray in the shower along with a full size tub.

Breakfast, by American standards was A plus, however, by Austrian standards, very average.

Great wait staff in the bar, at breakfast and in the evening. Our evening meal, like all the Austrian hotel meals we experienced, was a bit of a disappointment. I would eat here again but just once during a stay and that's why I'm not sure about giving the hotel a five star review. I think they said they have a driver who will take you into town? Perhaps I'm being too critical of Austrian cuisine- if you are German or Austrian and like fancy hotel food you might really like it. I don't understand the appeal of the ubiquitous perch pike- has a very slippery texture but our first courses were good. We had a rental car but parking in the old town area to go to other restaurants sounds difficult.

The spa area is very small but charming. I think the pool they are building will be a great addition and might boost this property to an even higher level. Very nice front desk staff.

This is where Cameron Diaz and Tom Cruise stayed whilst filming some or other movie. They obviously like their privacy as this hotel is away from the bustling crowds. It is a 12 minute walk through the forest to an elevator that takes you down into the heart of Salzburg town. The rooms are small, it is Europe after all - but very comfortable and luxurious. The staff are polite and professional. The breakfast in the mornings is delicious and beautifully served. The grounds are beautifully groomed and you invite you to curl up with a book and relax. We stayed here for a few days for our anniversary and to enjoy the Salzburg Festival - and I hope to stay here again one day! It was lovely!

One of the best Hotels we have ever stayed in. On the top of a mountain overlooking Salzburg, and we were treated like Royalty. Service, food, rooms, views all exceptional. Even a welcoming glass of champagne on arrival! Have stayed before and will stay again.

Lovely location on the top of the hill overlooking Salzburg's old town. It's a 15 minute taxi journey from the central station, but so easy to get into the centre. They hotel gives you free access to the lift at the modern art museum (5 minutes walk away) that takes you right into the centre of old Salzburg. Its more of a traditional hotel and that shows in the the decor, more traditional than modern. The spa is newer, but was not so busy when we were there. The staff are massively friendly and helpful. Regarding breakfast, it was good but nothing very special and probably the weakest part of the offering - the weather was good when we were there but we had to ask to sit on the terrace, do it because it gives you wonderful views of Salzburg; there is a buffet and there is not a breakfast menu but I'm sure they can provide whatever you want.

We stayed on the very last night before it was going to close for renovations, which will include an outside pool and other things I'm sure. I'm pretty sure this is one of the more interesting and nicer places to stay so would recommend it.
