Goldenes Theater Hotel
Ranked #34 of 132 Hotels in Salzburg
Reviewed 6 July 2014

Stayed four days at this excellent hotel, two days on either end of a trip through Austria. Excellent rooms, and the staff were unusually hospitable. We stayed at some more expensive places with staff that felt as if they were working through a checklist on friendliness. Nice enough. But the staff at Goldenes Theater do it naturally. Easily and naturally do what is needed to accommodate guests. Liked it so much that we extended our stay beyond what our tour company had booked.

This hotel is fine as an economy hotel. Rooms were clean but spartan. Shower was awkward...water gets everywhere. AC worked okay, but not great. Given that the staff smoked on the patio below our room, we'd have liked an option to cool the room without keeping the windows open. Minibar fridge was okay, and the breakfast was fine. Staff in evening and morning were pretty efficient. Mid-day, it seemed you had to pry them out of the back room where they were eating! The hotel bar is good, a nice place to get a glass of wine.

Best thing about this place: its location near the pedestrian area but away from the madding crowds. A few minutes' walking and one could be in Old Town or at Mirabal Palace. Taxi to train station took a minute; walking takes just 15.

Room Tip: Ask for quiet and away from the patio area to avoid smoke from the people sitting on the patio.

The hotel was beautifully located around a 10-15 minute walk from the river and the old town centre. The room was spacious and comfortable and the breakfast was superb. The bathroom was good and the shower was hot and powerful. The staff at the hotel were knowledgeable and friendly and were willing to help us to find local transport. All in all, this hotel provided great value for money and was excellent.

Basic good quality economy hotel in Europe modeled similarly to the Ibis chain. The room was clean, the beds were comfy. The service at the front desk was useful, provided us with maps, called us a cab for our departure. The breakfast was decent and included scrambled eggs and ham, as well as hard boiled eggs if you preferred. We felt they could have refreshed the breakfast bar a bit more often.

Wifi wasn't super-speedy but it worked pretty well in our room on the 1st floor.

Location: easy walk to all the major site and along a major street for good restaurants. See some ratings on this site.

People have to rate their hotels in comparison to other hotels of the same class and price. For the econo-hotel price, Goldenes did a good job.

Excellent for walking distance into the City. Far enough out re noise and any crowds. Very good breakfasts - a lot of choice. Helpful staff. Basic because no iron, kettle etc. Very big hardish but comfortable bed. Requested a quiet higher room which was fulfilled. Apart from selfish rude people on our floor (not the hotel's fault!) noise not a problem! Would stay there again!

Room Tip: No Pool hence Review

When we arrived we hailed a taxi at the airport and it cost 14 euros to the hotel (though 16.5 coming back oddly enough!). We found the hotel well located, just ten minutes stroll to the old town, which is the centre of Salzburg where all the main sites are. We were only there for three nights so did not bother getting the Salzburg tourist card, but would recommend this if you are staying for longer as it gives access to most of the main sites in town. You can get this from the hotel Reception, who also provide you with a free map of Salzburg and a brochure of all the available excursions.

We went on the Lakes and Mountain tour, which cost 40 euros each. Transport was arranged from the hotel, although we had to walk back from the coach terminal (10 mins walk). Unfortunately we didn't see the sights in their best light as it was raining heavily, but it is a good way to see the beautiful Austrian landscape.

The Hohensalzburg Castle was worth a trip, costing 11.5 euros each, which included the furnicular train and all the castle sites.

Food and drinks were quite expensive. There are plenty of restaurants within walking distance of the Golden's, which are slightly cheaper than across the bridge in the old town. There are plenty of Italian and Chinese restaurants for those who aren't keen on Austrian cuisine (typically dumplings and schnitzel!!) A basic main course will cost anything from between 10-15 euros per head. Two latte coffees are between 7-9 euros.

Room Tip: Ask for an inside room as the street rooms can be very noisy!!

Wifi for free but inexistent.
The Hotel Parking is expensiver than the Plublic one which is only 100 meters away
The bathroom is old and the tab not usable.
I will never come back to this hotel, it is the first time that I'm disapointed in Austria.

Room Tip: Chose an other Hotel
