First off, my partner and I are always looking for interesting, not mainstream chain-hotels to stay in...Haus Wartenberg definitely fits this description. The house is a charming, old-world place where there is a sense of family and simplicity. As proof, we arrived on our first night where a wedding reception was taking place, and we experienced our first taste of Austrian culture! The owner (Johannes) and his family live in the house. The staff was always very helpful and attentive to any of our requests (using the Internet, doing laundry). The room was spacious and clean, and overlooked the front garden. It could be noisy at times when the windows were left open, as guests were outside in the front garden, or the children of the owner played energetically outside! There are renovations in progress, but nothing that detracted from our experience.
Breakfast was simple and satisfying, and the hidden gem is the restaurant that is a part of the house. The food is simple and classic, and very tasty and reasonably priced. It was a delight (and convenient) to eat in the restaurant.
Haus Wartenberg is located outside the Altstadt, however you can easily walk to the Altstadt (10-15 minutes). I recommned renting bikes, as it is a lovely and easy way to get around Salzburg. This is a bike-friendly city!
All in all, this was a nice and peaceful stay in Salzburg...I think this hotel fits a certain type of traveller who is not expecting perfection, but who appreciates the small, cozy, and simple amenities Haus Wartenberg provides. We would stay there again.
It is probably a good idea to talk directly to the owner about the layout and features of the room to ensure you get a room that meets your needs (we booked a larger room meant for 3 people, but appreciated the extra room since we were there for 5 days...)
