Hotel Hofwirt

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

we enjoyed an excellent three night stay at the Hofwirt. It is handy for the old town as it situated just outside the pedestrianized area of Salzburg. You can walk to all the main attractions. I thought it was great value. The staff were friendly and extremely helpful. The rooms were comfortable and clean. Our en suite was huge with a great shower. No complaints about the hotel - very happy to recommend it.

We stayed here four nights, and highly recommend this hotel. It's an easy 15 minute walk to the old town, and there are several good restaurants nearby. The staff is friendly and helpful, and the public areas of the hotel are pleasant. Breakfast is fabulous; lots of options, and we enjoyed having our breakfast in the courtyard. The only downside was that the rooms were quite warm in the evenings, and because our rooms faced the street, there was a bit of traffic noise. The rooms facing the courtyard are probably best. Overall, a very good place to stay.

Great location, inhouse parking for a fee of 15 EUR/day. Staff very frendly and helpful. Room and bathroom were spacy enough, however it has only fan, no air conditioning. We had a room with streetview, the windows are soundproof so there is nothing to disturb you at night. Breakfast was good.

A friend and I stayed here for 2 nights. A small room with twin beds which were very comfortable. No aircon so it was a bit stuffy, but the fan helped a bit. Good bathroom, with a great, strong shower, but only hand soap and shower gel provided. Good wifi connection. Our room faced the main street but the window blocked out most of hte noise so it was pretty quiet. Good location, very easy to get to from the airport - no.2 bus stops just a few minutes walk away. An easy 10 minute walk into the old town down a lovely pedestrianised street. Amazing breakfast selection and nice to have complimentary tea and coffee at any time of day on the ground floor of the hotel. A few nice restaurants nearby that we stumbled across - the Organic Pizza place was great and there is an amazing vegan restaurant called The Heart of Joy Cafe close by. I would definitely stay here again if visiting Salzburg.

Great location about a 10 minute walk from Old Town, this hotel is at the end of the pedestrian way on Linzer Gasse. There are many restaurants and cafes in the area as well as a lot of shops. The rooms are smallish, but have nice bathrooms. WiFi worked well for us. The breakfast was very good. My only concern is the lack of air conditioning. This could be a problem during the summer months.

The hotel is good and very well located but be careful in asking the staff for directions, especially if you need to catch a bus to the train station. My husband and I got to Salzburg by train so we walked from the train station to the hotel following Google Maps. When leaving the city to go back to Vienna we decided to take a bus to the train station because it was too hot to walk. We asked one of the staff members for directions and she simply pointed the wrong bus. Because of that we missed our train and had to pay 100 euros extra to get new tickets. An absurd!

Stayed at the Hotel Hofwirt 2 nights, Room was large, modern yet simple. Breakfast had food choices with everything I ate tasting very good. When we checked in, the manager at the desk recommended 2 restaurants nearby for great regional food. We went to both and were very happy with what we ate. The manager also tried to sell us tours we didn't want, but backed off when he could tell we weren't interested. We noticed that Rick Steves tours use this hotel often. I'm not saying this is good or bad, just a fact to take into consideration.

Hotel Hofwirt is in a good location close to the tourist strip, so easliy accessible for restaurants etc. an easy 600m walk into the heart of the old town. No aircon in the rooms and it was hot in May, so would be very hot in summer.

Small corner hotel close to the river Salzach and the old town. Clean and well maintained room and facilities. Very friendly and helpful desk staff, most impressed! Walking distance from river and old town, and walking distance from railway station but bumpy roads if carting your luggage with you. The Linzer strasse with boutique shops by is right there opposite hotel and has lots of small restaurants.

Just returned from a 4 night break in Salzburg, staying at the Hofwirt and we were pleasantly surprised. Location is perfect, although everything in Salzburg is walkable anyway. It's a 3-star, but I've stayed in worse 4-stars. Clean, safe and well-run. Friendly counter staff who were keen to help. We'd read about the lack of aircon and the amount of noise on the street at night so groaned a little when we were installed in a room right above the entrance on the 1st floor (2nd if you're American) which was also next to a busy cab-rank. But to be honest, although the room was warm and having the window open was essential, noise wasn't too bad on 3 of the 4 nights. The Saturday night noise continued til past 3am, but even then it didn't make sleep impossible. The room itself was tiny, but adequate. After all, who goes to Salzburg and spends quality time in their room? Great water-pressure in the showers (which leaked badly) but otherwise the room was clean and well-maintained. Safes in every room and a tablet to get Internet access too. Used hotel wifi on our mobile phones and coverage was good and WhatsApp conversations clear and unbroken. The breakfast was good quality and plentiful with helpful and friendly staff and sitting outside to eat at the beginning of the day was marvellous.
