“Our best meal in Salzburg”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

We didn't stay at this hotel, but had a meal here after being recommended to it by some local people. As I can't see it listed under Salzburg restaurants, I'll review it here.

The meal was the best we had in Salzburg. We were on a group tour but this was a free evening so we had a chance to try something different from the bulk meals provided to tour groups. My zander fish was very good and my wife's steak, with local mushrooms and spaetzle, was wonderful - very tender. For dessert we had an excellent apple strudel, double the size and quality of others we'd had at about the same price.

The owner, Johannes, came out after the meal and talked to us about the history of the house, which is over three hundred years old. Very friendly and informative. This was a very enjoyable evening, which we'll remember for a long time.

Charming guesthouse in a quiet location 10 mins walk from the Old Town. Breakfast simple but substantial, evening meals good value. Rooms quaint and furnished in traditional style. The owners and staff and very helpful and ensure that you have everything you need. We will stay there again.

I loved everything about this hotel! It's old and corky but had great character. I was on a trip with my family and we booked one big room but the people at the front desk ended up giving us 2 rooms to make it more comfortable. The location was also easy walking distance to all the attractions in the city. Loved the charm, loved the service and left Salzburg with great memories.

We arrived to friendly & helpful staff who helped us with our luggage up to our rooms on the first floor. Yes it is an old building & after being on a tour with 5 star hotels, it was abit of a shock but once we were settled in, all seemed better. Unfortunately we were asked to move rooms due to a mix up but our new room had a small bar fridge so that was a great bonus. We had an old TV which was there purely for decorations as it didnt work.
The WIFI had a strong signal, very pleasing. Only half our lights worked so we moved globes around to suit our needs. We asked if an electric kettle was available for hot water ( cuppa tea) & one was promptly delivered to our room with cups & milk.
We stayed for 2 nights & in the afternoon the sun streamed into our room, great for drying our washing!
Location was good with 2 convenience stores located within 5 minute walk. Great restraurant just around the corner, Poseidin, ate there both nights. Parking only on the street but the staff with great giving us a time clock sheet to allow free parking.
Interesting 15 minute walk into the old town & Fortress through the Monchs Berg, literally you walkthrough a mountain.
The beds were comfortble, good hot shower but no where to hang wet towels.
All in all, we would stay here again. The staff were incredibly helpful & friendly. No, its not all new & glitzy but Haus Wartenberg is still good value & provides a comfortable base when in Salzburg.

I would recommend this hotel but prospective visitors need to be clear about what to expect. This building is over 400 hundred years old. It can in no way be seen as up to the standard of a chain hotel. The rooms are all very different and odd. Our rooms was actually two double rooms sharing a bathroom which would have been good for a family visit. The electrics leave quite a bit to be desired. In one of these rooms only one bedside light reached a socket. The central light was not attached to the ceiling and did not have shade. The bedside light smelt of scorching after about ten minutes and had to be swapped. The furniture is old - some would say antique - and obviously doesn't match. The water however was hot and the shower was very good. The towels soft and clean and plentiful. The beds were comfortable - well ours were but I couldn't guarantee the others - you get the idea. The breakfast room is small but cosy and there is an overflow room. The breakfast was good but not exceptional - one morning we had boiled eggs, the other morning we didn't - you get the idea. The staff were on the whole very friendly and helpful - except when we first arrived and weren't expected despite having emailed and being acknowledged and being put into a room with four beds rather than the two double rooms we had booked through the website. This was resolved but not until quite a bit of stress on our part and some annoyance on the part of the staff. After that though, or because of it, the owner Johannes and his wife and the rest of the team were very helpful and accommodating if not completely organised - you get the idea. The location is excellent - it is ten to fifteen minutes walk from the centre (or less by bus) in a quiet residential area. Overall, this is a marvellous building that needs to be looked after and with some substantial maintenance could be a real gem, but it isn't quite there at the moment. If you can cope with the quirky and a little odd and most things working - rather like the wifi - then you will leave smiling if a little wryly. If you can't, then do n't even try it - you get the idea.

The 400 year old building was the attraction for our booking this authentic hotel, however on arrival it was clear to see that our room and bathroom had not been cleaned since the construction of this building. For the heavy price charged we would expect a high level of cleanliness however old the building is. Its location to the city was a positive, as indeed was the continental breakfast offered. The alfresco dining matched with the reasonable prices (compared to Salzburg) were the hotels best attribute.
