Hotel Sacher Salzburg
Ranked #6 of 132 Hotels in Salzburg
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 March 2014

I recently stayed at the Hotel Sacher Salzburg with my daughter and we loved every minute. From the moment we pulled up to the entrance we were treated like royalty. Everyone was so pleasant. Our room was large and comfortable. My daughter loved the chocolate scented bath products. We were even greeted will little sacher tortes in the room. The restaurant was one of the best we had encountered on our trip through Germany and Austria. It is in the perfect place for exploring the city. I would very much love to return with my husband. I can't stop talking about it.

This is a beautiful, traditional hotel in an excellent position by the river, overlooking the old town. The hotel is not part of a large corporate chain and this is reflected in both the very traditional Austrian decor and the very attentive, personal and friendly service. Breakfast was excellent, the Cafe Sacher served beautiful afternoon tea and there was a lovely ambiance in the bar. After staying in so many bland, uniform, corporate hotels it was a real pleasure to stay in a hotel with such individual style and such excellent service.

The sacher hotel salzburg is one of the best I've ever stayed in. The location is magnificent with fantastic views of the city. Every thing is a walking distance away. The restaurant serves delicious players & of course the Sacher torte is unforgettable. The staff & service are outstanding. If you'r heading that way this hotel is a must see. The veranda & outside cafe are really enjoyable.

Room Tip: If you ca afford the front rooms go for it.

We had stayed in the Sacher Hotel Vienna over Christmas and absolutely loved it, so we decided to try out the Salzburg branch as well. The hotel is similarly beautiful as its Vienna counterpart. The house exudes beautiful old-world exterior and interior design. You know immediately that you are in a hotel with a rich, colourful tradition. The view of the river and the old town is wonderful!

Having said that, while we were staying there (end of February 2014) there were renovations going on. We were aware of this, and had explicitly asked for rooms away from the building noise. Unfortunately, we ended up getting rooms exactly where the work was happening, and this could not be changed because there were no acceptable alternative rooms.

At reception/concierge desk, we also got the impression of only being half-welcome. When requesting an upgrade on one of the rooms, the lady said "But you have to pay for the upgrade." Really? Who would have thought!

The staff members who exhibited the best attitude were those at the restaurant and bar. At the bar I asked one of them if he could recommend an Italian/Mediterranean place, because that was what we felt like that evening. He enthusiastically recommended "Pan e Vin." This place turned out to be just weird. Not one guest there, uneasy atmosphere... Needless to say we didn't end up eating there...

Room Tip: Make sure to get a room facing the river. Traffic is quite heavy on the other side, and you'll w...

Your backpacking niece will refuse to ever travel with you again. The Grand Tour of Europe you promised your offspring will not get beyond one point on the European map. Your wilderness-loving uncle who always loved to drag you from mountainhut to mountain hut ('Livingstone, I presume?') will strike you from his will. All because you booked Sacher Salzburg once, loved the gorgeous classic surroundings, the service, the lovely cafe, the evening piano play - and never want to stay elsewhere, ever again. Oh, and did we mention the 'heimweh' for Christian, Gerhard, Ms Kass and all other staff members you will no longer want to live without? To top it all off, if you came to celebrate your anniversary, like we did, you will find yourself stooping to anything to find new anniversaries. We have convinced ourselves it is perfectly reasonable to celebrate future parakeet anniversaries in Sacher - fortunately, we have four. Meanwhile, we must draw strength from one minor consolation: truth be told, our own breakfast in bed is a lot better.

Room Tip: Ask, if necessary beg, for the riverside view.

If you like to have a comfortable stay in the middle of Salzburg, this place is for you. Hotel Sacher offers luxurious rooms with very nice interiour, all in walking distance to the Getreidegasse. Food is typical Austrian and quality of food is excellent. The waiters were providing fast and excellent service and were able to tell interesting stories about the history of typical Austrian dishes.

Very family-friendly.

The feeling that from the front desk to the turn down service- cared that we were there, was my first thought about the Sacher. We were upgraded without asking. The room had a warmth, beautiful decor, and charm that is gettting harder to find anywhere. The restaurant food was excellent. The location is literally steps away from the pedestrian bridge into the older part of the city. There was never a wait for the elevator and the wifi worked! Though right on the main road with the windows closed you could not hear any outside sounds. Across the street you could ride a bus to any attraction. We loved our stay.

Room Tip: Ask to be upgraded.
