My wonderful experiences at Vienna's Sacher Hotel convinced me to stay at the Sacher when we visited Salzburg last month, even though it was significantly more expensive than the comparably rated Bristol. Happily, we were not disappointed. The same courteous, old-world charm that distinguishes the Sacher Vienna is present at the Sacher Salzburg. The property has an ideal location across the river from the bustle of the old town and next to the Mirabel Gardens. The building is stunning, particularly the glorious staircase that we often chose to take to our fourth floor room. Service was excellent. We were upgraded to a superb room with great views of the Fort across the river - the Papageno suite - with ample room for my wife, our daughter and myself. We were there over the weekend and, were it not for the scaffolding on the hotel, would not have had any idea that there was ongoing construction at the hotel.
Three potential areas for improvement: as another tripadvisor has commented, the wifi in the room was terrible - my wife spent much of her waking time in the room sitting next to the door trying to get a signal; the basement spa is rudimentary, not even close to the Vienna property's; and smoke from cigarettes at an adjacent table drove me from the bar long before I would have liked to have left - perhaps there's a way to segregate non-smokers and smokers? Even so, I would not hesitate to stay at the Sacher when we return to Salzburg.
