Sheer comfort in a traditional large hotel. Beds were extremely comfy. Left on the bed was a wonderful aromatherapy fragrance for a restful night's sleep! Food was served in beer keller and /or beer garden-typical german fare on offer-absolutely delicious! Breakfast offered a fanastic range of food and teas.Very central for Rail Station, buses. Staff very helpful in getting taxis etc..

If you're staying several days, buy a Saltzburg Card. It gets you into most tourist attractions, on/off city buses and can save you quite a bit of money. Buy at the hotel.We saved about £20 over 3 days using it.

Great overall hotel, but smokey! :(

The hotel had tons of amenities. The brunch at The Pitter was delicious. The rooms were very large and well stocked. They had everything you possibly needed-even slippers and robes! One very upsetting thing, though, was the cigarette smoke you could smell throughout the hallways and in the room when we turned the vents on. The bar on the entrance floor was smoking, and often the door was wide open to the reception area. We could smell smoke on the first floor hallway all the way up to the fifth floor hallway! For the rooms being nonsmoking, this was unacceptable. I'd give this hotel 5 stars if there wasn't such an issue with the cigarette smoke!

The hotel is located within easy walking distance from the train station and many tourist sites. The hotel has a pleasant atmosphere, clean rooms, and comfortable beds. The staff was helpful and accommodating (a distinct and welcome change from our previous stay). Very thankful for the enjoyable stay!

Great option to visit the city

Walking distance from the train station and to the Old city. Nice wellness area with a gym, a small pool, a sauna and a steam room open until 11PM. The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was a little small but overall it's a great deal.

Decent hotel

Good location almost exactly halfway between the train station (5 minute walk) and old town (8 minute walk). Staff was very friendly throughout my stay except when I went ten minutes over the checkout time of 11:00am. I am used to late checkouts because of my status with Marriott and Starwood. Rooms were small and claustrophobic but clean. Only offered shampoo but no conditioner.

The Pitter--great hotel & location!

when we returned to the hotel~10pm & realized the cleaning lady didn't replenish our coffee,sugar,cream packets, the front desk had them sent up in ~ 1minute! re. the location: extremely convenient to the train stn.(~7 min.walk maybe-to your right as you exit). exit lobby & go left & there is a stall 1 block down (same side of st) that is open until 11pm that sells all kinds of hotdogs/sausage dogs,etc. plus 3e for 0.5 liter beer. we got the large hotdog for 2.80e--this is good for a late night option just 1 block f/ hotel. also, if you go left out of lobby on Rainstrasse, take a left @paris-lodron & there is a great laundromat on your rt.@the corner of wolfe-deitrich ~5min.walk.

Not flexible with emergencies

Our flight to Salzburg was cancelled due to weather. I called the hotel as soon as I had the news. Although I called in advance and it was not our fault to miss the vacation, the hotel did not refund anything out of the 3-night reservation. This was the first time for us, that a hotel did not refund something due to emergnecies. I will not choose this hotel again. The staff on the phone was unpleasant.
