Hotel zur Post is a small hotel on the outskirts of central Salzburg. One can easily reach the center using tram No 1 which stops in front of the hotel. The hotel room was clean, receptionists were polite and could communicate well in English, breakfast was enjoyable. The only setback was the free wifi from the room which wasn't working at all. This was very annoying for us as we plan the holiday day by day through searching the internet.

I stayed at Hotel zur Post this past weekend while visiting Salzburg alone. The reception was extremely courteous (English) and I found my room to be as advertised in this forum-- clean, comfortable, and quiet. The bathroom was spotless and included a spacious shower. The room was of adequate size with a closet, flatscreen TV, free wireless internet, and a DVD player. As an American, I would've loved an A/C unit but I've become used to being without it while in Europe and the windows opened overnight provided enough cool air to remain comfortable. There is no subway but the bus system is easy to use and a stop is across the street from the hotel. The breakfasts were included and were excellent-- breads, danishes, fruit, cold meats, juice, etc. As I mentioned, every time I visited the reception desk for assistance, clear English was spoken and directions were provided with much courtesy. As a reasonably-priced family-owned Bed & Breakfast located 10 minutes from the altstadt, this hotel is an excellent choice. I would recommend this hotel to colleagues and I would stay there again with my wife.

We stayed here at the start and end of cycle trip and it's relatively easy to find, easy to get to from the station (using bus) and the river/town is a 15/20 minute walk away. The reception staff are very friendly and helpful. We stayed in the annex the first night. The rooms there are a bit more dated than the rooms in the main building with we stayed in on our final night. Both rooms were big and comfortable. Breakfasts are very good, even by the usually excellent Austrian standard. Overall a great little hotel, recommended.

I chose this hotel as a way station on our way to Hungary. It is located outside but close to the historic area. We stayed in a family apartment, which resembled a suite but accommodated four adults well. The bathroom was large. The room included a breakfast, free wifi, as well as free parking.

Our reception staff was very friendly and called our tour company for us when they were late/forgot to pick us up and helped us coordinate our trip. The building is charming from the outside and we had a large triple room with a big bathroom that met our needs. It was a little outdated, but good enough as we were only in the room for naps/evenings. Our room was right at the front of the hotel on the street so it gave it a "city" feel but we didn't mind. And at night the traffic died down anyways and we were so exhausted from all the walking we fell right asleep and didn't wake until morning. The breakfast was decent, however some of the workers weren't very friendly. We couldn't tell if it's just because they don't like Americans or what... but most didn't speak English (or pretended that they didn't). Although this isn't really a reflection on the hotel so much as the location, we found it next to impossible to find restaurants in the evening. A man nearby told us we would have to take a bus to the city center to find anywhere open past 8! We also loved all the windows the hotel provided. They also offered laundry service for $10 euro/load which was great because we gave them our clothes at night and they brought them to us in the morning. We found it worth the cost as we were on vacation for 2 weeks and needed some clean clothes. They wouldn't have dried had we washed them in the sink because it was so damp (we were there the week of the floods). All in all, a good stay.

Room Tip: If you will be bringing a lot of luggage, get a room on the 2nd floor- there are no elevators!

The reception staff were generally helpful & friendly. The room presentation & bathroom facilities were disappointing. Breakfast was reasonable & would normally be acceptable in the UK, Holland or Czech Republic. However, we found the general food presentation & quality in Austria very good so we had experienced better.

Stayed here American Thanksgiving weekend 2012. Clean room, updated bathroom a plus. Had two bedrooms, both very quiet. Amazing when we opened the windows how we realized it was so quiet with the windows closed. Breakfast was good and actually quite varied in it's options. Staff was on task and very considerate. Got the 24hr bus pass, bus stops in front of the hotel, so super easy 5-10 min ride in to Salzburg.
