Reviewed 28 January 2012

This hotel was very comfortable during our visit just before Christmas. Yes it is next door to a church with bells that ring regularly, but we didn't notice them. They are not deafening and are a handy alarm clock.
The breakfast had a good variety of cereals and breads and pastries and the breakfast room is accessible for tea and coffee in the afternoon.
The reception staff were very helpful in locating a doctor nearby who was able to see us straight away.
Within walking distance of all the Salzburg sights and Christmas Markets, even in the cold weather. There are also plenty of restaurants / pubs and cafes in LInzergasse.

My family of 4 stayed at the Amadeus over the Christmas period in 2011. My children are of adult age and we were accommodated in a two bedroom suite on the top floor.
As mentioned in other reviews the location was superb and we had no problems walking to all attractions including the outstanding Christmas markets. The staff were friendly and accommodating. A delightful breakfast is served each day in the brightly painted large dining room. Some previous reviewers have commented on noise from the bar downstairs or the church bells. We did not notice any noise from the bar as we had the windows closed due to it being winter. Bells are a big part of Salzburg. You hear them everywhere and they did not bother us. We would have no hesitation returning on our next visit to delightful Salzburg.

We stayed for 3 nights in December and everything was great. Perfect location on pedestrian street and 10 min walk to major Christmas Markets and old town. Great breakfast and cool cemetray right out back where Mozarts father and wife are buried.

My husband found the hotel on line, and I really think he chose it for its name! But we really enjoyed being there. The staff were all quite helpful with tickets for performances and other details. We were even given a choice of rooms! We chose the one with a shower instead of the one with only a bathtub, and that turned out to be fortunate, as the room we chose was on the back of the hotel, overlooking a cemetery! The bathroom was quite large, with a bidet, of course. The room was fairly small, as most European rooms are, but we were fine, and loved that we could open both windows, as the temperature was perfect while we were there in late September 2011 (might be hot at other times). The closet was a small armoire, but we managed to use it creatively, and did not feel too cramped. The bed (two singles with a king headboard) was quite comfortable, and we used the room quite a bit, as we were tired from an earlier excursion. The location is absolutely perfect for sightseeing. The church bells ring a great deal in Salzburg, but do not ring all night, thank goodness. The computer in the small lobby was usually available when I wanted to use it. The breakfast buffet was quite lovely, although only cold items and hard-boiled eggs were available.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the back if you're looking for quiet.

Great location in a pedestrian oriented area near the river. Nice room, spacious bath, good breakfast buffet and afternoon coffee. Nice staff. Wifi in the lobby. We would gladly stay here again.

By calling itself Amadeus, this dowdy hotel tries to enhance its image. I found it entirely disappointing. The rooms needed updating, and a paint job. And the carpeting has been there since Mozart's day. The housekeeping staff was also poor, leaving no toilet paper one day and failing to vacuum the room on another. It's also extremely noisy at night because it's located on a main street that's centrally located. Of course, the location was good but the problem was the room had no air conditioning so windows could not be closed at night. Breakfasts however were very good.

Room Tip: ask for a room at the back of the hotel to mitigate the noise problem.

The hotel is ideally located on pedestrian street in central Salzburg. We were given a "free upgrade" to a very comfortably appointed and spacious room at the front of the hotel but spent a sleepless night thanks to the noise from a nearby bar, which was followed by returning revellers and then street cleaners in the early hours. Suggest asking for a room at the back if you want a good night's sleep.
