Schone Aussicht
Ranked #56 of 132 Hotels in Salzburg
Reviewed 7 September 2012

I have visited the Hotel Schoene Aussicht twice this year with my family (including 3 children from 5 to 13 years old). This is the perfect hotel if you do not like to suffer the city heavy traffic and you really want to have time to relax, although you have all the city amenities at hand. The cuisine is just glorious, and the service, warm and helpful. To be honest, the rooms are not that big, but you are not supposed to stay in your room, or what? Expect Austrian luxury and style. Bathroom in perfect and everything tidy(soup bar would be a good idea instead og showergel). Next year I shall come back to Salzbug and, the Hotel Schoene Aussicht is my definitive choice. Max

Room Tip: Perfect place to relax and enjoy cultural life without the huzzle of city traffic.

the hotel is okay, average old fashioned. friendly people, nice breakfast
the view is amazing, and by car it is close enough to the city center
(driving up hill is scary though)

I LOVED this hotel.

First, we did not have a car like the other reviewers have mentioned being important. Here is how it worked for us- we took tours that would pick us up for free in the morning, then took a taxi (about 12-13 Euro before tip) back to the hotel from the old salzburg part of town. One day, we took a bus and it was about 12-15 minutes to walk down a long, windy, one lane road downhill to the bus stop. About 4,80 euro for a 24 hour pass. I would not recommend walking up the hill as it would be a "get sweaty" kind of walk.

The views at this hotel are AMAZING. The hotel restaurant also had some good food but I would only eat here if you need to as it was expensive and there is a 2,50 euro COVER CHARGE to eat! What?! The menu claimed the kitchen gave a "small gift" but when we asked about it after our meal, they said it was an egg with bacon. They never offered the "gift" to us, even after we asked about it, just told us about it. Weird.

The room is quiet and we had two windows, a balcony, and door to help us keep cool during the summer.

The breakfast was great. They had a really good marbled sweet bread I had every morning (see picture). The drinks were cold and refreshed frequently.

Internet is not very good. Like others have said, I had to go to the lobby area or outside seating to get the connection to work, even though there was a router right outside my room. I was not there for business, so the internet connection was more for pleasure and it did not bother me that I could not use the internet in the room. Also, they charge 5 euro for the password. When we got to the room, we found it in the table drawer. oh well.

Overall, great hotel and nice people working at the front. I would come back here, with or without a car.

Room Tip: Room #9 is a corner room that faces the city and beautiful mountains!

We were a little concerned about staying in this hotel without a car, but when we made the reservation, the manager was able to give us good information about cab fares. It all worked out well. The people running the hotel and restaurant are very friendly and helpful. The room we had was on the second floor with a balcony and view of the city (but not the castle and old city.) It was a little small, but OK. The breakfast was very good, as we experienced time and again in German and Austrian hotels.
Be aware! The restaurant is not open every evening. We arrived at about 7 or 8 in the evening without having eaten dinner, thinking we could eat at the hotel restaurant only to find it was not open that evening. We walked down the hill from the hotel, but in the neighborhood there was very little available.
In the mornings, we walked down the hill (an easy 15 minutes). There is a bus stop at the foot of the hill where we could catch buses to the old city or the train station. We only used cabs when we returned to the hotel.
This hotel was a great value. We found room prices in Salzburg to be extremely high, and this hotel was a steal, especially considering its great view of the city, excellent staff, and breakfast.

Room Tip: If you do not have a car, ask the hotel about taxi fares from the old city or train station to their...

We stayed here for 4 days over a weekend late in June, and our rental Fiat 500 barely made it up the steep hill to the hotel but when we got there it was obvious we had made a good decision. We stayed in a room with a balcony with overview of the city on the second floor, and the view was incredible. The hotel itself is rather old, but it feels homey rather than old in a bad way. The place is run by one or two families and they are very welcoming and helpful. The room was good, no AC which can be rather hot, and this isn't your new age flashy hotel, everything looks and feels a bit old, in a good way.

The breakfast buffet was very good, fresh eggs, yogurt, fruits and bread. There is also a excellent restaurant downstairs, but a good meal for 2 1/2 person is around 80-100 euros. The garden has a small pool which is very adequate for the amount of people staying in the hotel. And the view as always breathtaking.

All in all a excellent hotel, but do take note, staying there without a car is very inadvisable.

Not much to add to what the other reviewers have already mentioned, but what a wonderful hotel this is. Granted; you do have to get yourself up on the mountain and many sat-navs do get confused. The road is clearly marked with signs however and even the experience of rolling up to the hotel was rather exciting.
Service was good, friendly and very clear. Our room clean and good even though the wear and tear is starting to show on certain parts of the old building/rooms. Our shower had a broken hose which made showering a bit of a challenge.
The nights rest was good, even though the room was rather hot (without active ventilation) and some other hotel guests were making quite some noise (singing, shouting) till late at night. One person also tried to get in our room at some point, which I imagine was a case of mistaken room door. The breakfast was great, with a good selection of bread and cold cuts. I recommend you have yours out on the terrace if the weather permits.
If we come to Salzburg again by car, I will likely come here again.
