Reviewed 4 July 2014

We arrived Salzburg by train. We bought the Salzburg card at TI right outside of the train station then used the card to take bus#1 to Karajanplatz. The hotel is right across the street from the bus stop.

The hotel room decoration is modern and a bit funky, but it's functioning and comfortable. We liked the breakfast choices and the staff was very nice. The best part of the hotel is the location. You can walk to many attractions and Getreidegasse is a beautiful pedestrian street full of quaint little shops.

My husband , two children (11 and 9) and I stayed at this lovely hotel recently ... the family room was very comfortable and modern. The hotel is very charming and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel is very close to all the main attractions of Salzburg and we walked to all the tourist sites from the hotel.
Breakfast was very good and varied. The croissants were delicious -that probably explained why they were over by 9.30 am every morning even though breakfast carries on till 10am! Please do ensure a steady supply of croissants so that people like me who reach towards the end of breakfast can enjoy them too!!
We had dinner at the hotel restaurant one night- the food was well prepared, and the service was polite and efficient.

We would definitely stay at this hotel again and we do highly recommend it to anyone planning a trip to Salzburg.

Loved the vibe of this hotel. The decor is fabulous, the rooms are cool.

The only thing that wasn't perfect is that one of our windows did not have drapes and the lights from outside (signs) shown brightly in our room. I may not have noticed, but I had not yet shaken off the jet lag and I wasn't sleeping as heavily as normal. The second night did not bother me as much.

The staff was very friendly and helpful and they made reservations for us on top of the Modern Musuem der Morderne. Loved! The view was amazing!

It's an art hotel! Take time to browse the art. I wish we had had more time in Salzburg...

My husband, two children (10 and 7) and I recently spent 3 nights here. We stayed in the family suite (without kitchen). It was very large with a separate master bedroom with king size bed, a single bedroom and a single bed was put into the living room. There was more than ample space. The bathroom was very large with a separate toilet room and the water pressure in the shower was excellent. The toiletries and hair dryer were good. The room was beautiful and more space than we had expected. The weather was cool while we were there so no need to sleep with the windows open and it was quiet. There is a cooling unit in the living room that we did not have to us. The staff was very helpful and friendly and helped us with dinner reservations at other restaurants (highly recommend dinner at the K&K hotel). Breakfast was very good with specialty eggs and coffees to order as well as a buffet. The location was fantastic, on the main pedestrian shopping street. Parking garage was in the mountain, right across the road. We absolutely loved Salzburg and would definitely stay in this hotel again and highly recommend it.

This very conveniently located hotel -- a quiet corner of bustling touristy Salzburg -- is an experience in itself. This visit is my second one here. The hotel is located in a building which dates back to the 14th century, which was renovated as a boutique hotel with an emphasis on art and culture. Each room is designed differently and uniquely, modern and interesting. There is a library with a wide assortment of interesting books where one can relax, drink tea, eat fruit or have cookies supplied by the hotel (usually there is a shortage of cups or they need to come to fill up the hot water, but nevertheless....). The breakfast is unusual in its variety (roast beef? among the usual items) and very aesthetically presented. The staff is very helpful and friendly.

Splendid location in the Old Town of Salzburg yet a bit from the crowds, thus nice and really quiet.
I had a not too spacious but perfectly adequate and rather charming room under the roof. Good facilities and nice touches like the little rubber duck mentioned by others.
Excellent breakfast. Very helpful staff. I can´t think of anything to complain about, and with such a charming place why should I?
