Arena City Hotel Salzburg

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I spent only one night here. It was very very good. I can recommend this place to everyone. The room was very nice. Very comfortable bed. The breakfast was also all right. You can find all type of food there.

The entire building needs renovating. The carpets are worn and stained, the furniture could very well soon reach antique status, and the bathrooms are right out of Happy Days. On an upnote, the food in the restaurant was very good.

We booked a double room, the room had no air conditioner, no safe box, no fridge, no glasses to drink water. So this is definitely not a 4-star hotel, maybe 2.5! There are 2 buses running pass, quite far from the city and food areas. However one staff was so helpful.

Positives: - Room is spacious Negatives: - Still uses keys for room access - Bathroom shower is poorly maintained, with very poor water pressure - Beds are saggy - NO AIRCONDITIONING, I was lucky that it was a cool night - Nowhere near the city centre, no nearby dining options or shops - Wifi provided, but speed was very very slow

I'm not sure why this hotel is classified as a 4 star hotel. Choose this hotel if you are willing to stay at a 3 star hotel with the price you are paying. The hotel looks very old, the building exterior looks modern but when get inside, you'll see the old furniture, no minibar, the poor internet connection. The breakfast was good, the staff was friendly and the parking was free. The hotel is far away from the centre of town and at the reception give you a map of salzburg and the hotel is not on it. Anyway, it's a good hotel for short trips but...

We spent two nights at Arena hotel this summer. It is a good hotel with great service. The hotel made a mistake and charged us twice, but the assistant manager Andrea Schramm was really helpful and corrected the mistake when we contacted them. The room was a bit outdated and needed a refurbishment. We had our dinner at the hotel one night and the food was good. The waiter was service minded and helpful.

Great Hotel and great service. Friendly and helpful staff. The hotel is approx 15 minutes by bus or 25 minutes walk from the old part of town and center. There is only a very few restaurants/snack bars in the area and most of them are closed pretty early. Rooms are good for the price, clean and have no balcony. The place is mostly frequented by groups and visitors of the near by convention center. I would recommend this property for the right price but not for guests not having access to a car or unable to walk far, as it is not as closed to the attraction as it may seem on the map.

In general, the hotel is fine- It offers spacious rooms, the location is a bit far from the city center but very convenient if you have a car especially with the free parking. The rooms are outdated and need renovation, walls are very thin and there is no AC ( which is essential in July/August) . The breakfast was good but not much variety. It is an Okay hotel just not a four star standard!

This hotel is meant to be 4 star, not even close, hotel very dated not very clean. Only one pillow per person in the room ??. Wifi useless not good enough this day and age. Found one girl in reception extremely helpful the other not great at all, one waiter in the breakfast dining room helpful and friendly the others were very rude, food only ok,

Wifi is very bad not good enough, way too far from the city. Not a four star standard in any way. Food is only ok and the staff in breakfast were very ignorant. No atmosphere in the hotel at all especially for holiday goers. In general it's very dated was expecting a lot better for a so called four star.
