Altstadt Hotel Hofwirt Salzburg

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Great location. We easily walked to it from the train station, and it was just a short walk to the old center of Salzburg. Everything was well-maintained, the bathroom was updated, and the beds were comfortable. Very reasonably priced. The negatives were street noise on a Friday night and it lacks any personality. That said, I would stay there again given the price and location.

We booked a wheelchair accessible room. I have emails from the hotel confirming a wheelchair accessible room. There are NO wheelchair accessible rooms at this hotel. We were very disappointed with this. Impossible for my husband to bathe/shower for 5 days. There is a shower stall and no way for someone in a wheelchair who doesn't walk to get into it. He could barely get his wheelchair into the bathroom! As you can see from my photo of the bathroom, we asked for a chair for the shower and they gave us a chair from their courtyard, I was hoping I could help my husband into the shower. It didn't work, there was just no room to manoeuver. If you are not in a wheelchair you might like this hotel. You might like the hard beds, the lack of air conditioning, the cramped rooms that smell like a dirty mop, the lack of a shelf in the bathroom to place your things, the crowded breakfast room (which is also not wheelchair accessible) or the courtyard off the breakfast room (not wheelchair accessible). Aside from the obvious cons, here are a few more: -no decaf coffee in the breakfast room -the only fresh fruit was apples, other fruit came from a can -a worker in the breakfast room decided to clean the toaster just as my toast was done, and she dumped burnt crumbs all over it. Thanks for that! -the only hot food was scrambled eggs which were overly salty & runny -huge sign in the breakfast room saying "It is forbidden to take food from the breakfast area" (nice, real welcoming) There is 1 Pro, and that is the location. It has nothing else going for it.

The Hotel Hofwirt is nothing special, but there is nothing wrong with it either. It is centrally located and reasonably priced in a city that can be very expensive. The rooms were adequate and the bathroom of good size, but there was very little hanging and storage space. Breakfast is satisfying, if rather impersonal in a large hotel kind of way. It is a short stroll to the river, and across to everything you want to see and do. There is an on- site garage which is convenient. A good choice in a charming city.

Great reception staff,helpful,friendly and fluent in English. Good room,comfortable and clean. Parking available in their underground area for a reasonable price.Euros15 p/d. The old city is just a few minutes walk away down a pedestrian street,lined with restaurants and bars. At the foot of the street you cross the river and you are there! Lovely old place that you can walk around in minutes Enloy!

The hotel is well located, a short walk from the Altstadt. Reception staff are friendly & helpful. We booked a room, which was on the top floor with a balcony. The room was a decent size, modern & clean. There is hard flooring throughout, making the hotel quite noisy. We enjoyed our stay at the Hofwirt.

Hofwirt is a fantastic boutique hotel and has fantastic location. Its located at a walk-able distance from old cobble streets of Salzburg. The hotel has great clean rooms, beautiful garden, well-equipped staff and great breakfast spread. Would definitely stay here again.

This hotel is in a great location for a city-break just across the Salzach river from the old town up a pedestrianized street (Linzer Gasse). There is good road access from the other direction. The hotel has its own parking but don't let then sell you this for a weekend trip as free street parking is available from late Friday afternoon until Monday morning. The breakfast selection is very good, the rooms ok for a few nights and the staff very helpful. Our September trip coincided with the St Rupert's day festival - the Rupertikirtag (which lasts several days) and is equivalent to a mini-Oktoberfest. We were amazed at the high percentage of young people wearing traditional dress (Lederhosen and Dirndl). Fantastic happy atmosphere day and night.

The hotel is well located, 5-10 minutes walk from the Altstadt. The public areas are minimalist, reception staff are friendly & helpful. We booked a deluxe room, which was on the top floor & had a balcony. The room was a decent size, was modern & clean & the bathroom had a walk in shower. There is hard flooring throughout, making the hotel quite noisy, especially with the cleaners starting at 0830. We enjoyed our stay at the Hofwirt.

Amazing location! It is near to everything you should see : old town, shops, the beautiful linzergasse street. Many bus stations and tourists' sites could be reached by walking. The breakfast was tasty. The receptionists were veryyy friendly and helpful. The room wasn't that big but comfortable. I really recommend this hotel. Try it and you will never regret it!

The basic advantage of the hotel is its location, just in the limits of the pedestrian area and from which you can easily reach all points of interest. A supermarket is just opposite of the hotel and restaurants and the old city are within a walking distance. In any case the property provides a mimimum of facilities adequate for a short stay. The room was rather small (18 sq. m.) and the balcony is not protected against rain. We travel by car and although the property informs in its booking page that parking is available on site, reservation is not possible . And actuallay upon arrival this parking was full and we had to go to a near by parking station which is rather expensive (15 euros per day)
