Hotel Hofwirt

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The hotel really exceeded our expectations on so many levels. I didn't expect it to be that close to the city centre or the bus station. Reviews about the breakfast gave me the impression that it will be a very basic breakfast but honestly everything turned out to be perfect!!! The location is great m: it is located in a very central street "linzer Gasse" which connects you to almost every other main street in salzburg. We didn't even need any sort of transportation inside the city except to go from and to the main train station. The breakfast was really good; great variety, great quality, it saved us the hassle of searching for a breakfast spot every morning. We had a corner room on the 3rd floor which had an excellent view. We woke up to the old city view from one side and the deers jumping on the mountain from the other side, which was rly awesome. The room was spacious and clean. The bed was really comfy. Only comment is that the bathroom is a little tiny but it was convenient. We checked in and out in no time. Price is very good in comparison to other hotels in the area. Conclusion: Excellent hotel, worth every penny.

Great location on the brink of the old town. Easy to walk around and explore most of the places. The bus stop is a few minutes walk away. you could also walk from the main station if you dont have much luggage. breakfast spread was good. lounge with varieties of tea is refreshing

We chose the place mainly because of the cloxe approximity to the walking centre of the old town and the fact they have a carage. The hotel was a positive surprise: everything wass recently refurbished and at least the fourth floor rooms with balconies were nice and modern. In fact they would have been superb had they had air conditioning - anyway the road was not that busy which meant that one could leave a window open during the night. Good service and breakfast. I would choose the same hotel again...

Basically, everything was perfectly fine except - NO A/C. It was moderately hot summer, nothing extreme, but without A/C the room was impossible without opening the window and you are then bombarded with endless loud noises of trucks, buses, cars, road construction, and late night party goers. So you can not sleep because you're suffocating, or not sleep because of the noise. Too bad really, because it's a great location, and all other functional aspects of the hotel were very good. Also, we had space in the small attached garage for our rental car.

Stayed there two nights in April 2014. I recall being rather underwhelmed at the plain external appearance of the hotel building, but our stay was very comfortable. Bathrooms were excellent. The room was small but since we did not intend to spend too much time indoors it did not matter. Loved the portable fan. Breakfast was busy and spread out over a large area. The selection was adequate but not indulgent. The best part of the hotel is its location. The main Street leading down to the river is right in front, and it was fun to stroll down at will. Old town is just ten minutes away. Bus stops are nearby too, we took the bus to the airport to pick up a rental car to tour the area on our own. Our fav restaurant was BioBurger, a great joint halfway down the street, to the left side. There's plenty of window shopping opportunity too. There is a spar (general store where you can pick up sandwiches and other supplies) right across the street. Since the review is about the hotel I don't see the need to describe how magnificent the town of Salzburg is. Those visiting Salsburg will not be disappointed with this hotel.

The hotel rooms were clean and pleasant, staff seemed friendly and willing to help. Rooms don't have air con but are equipped with a fan which was suitable for our stay. The breakfast did seem pretty basic with bread, pastries, yogurts and a selection of cold meats. The hotel is located at the start of one of the main shopping streets in the new town area so it was nice stepping out and being in the centre already. Overall a pleasant stay given the price we paid for it.

* terrific location: only about a 15-minute walk to the old town. To the immediate right outside the front door is a bus stop where all buses go to the hauptbahnhof (about 7 min. and free transport with the Salzburg Card). * good-sized balcony (we were in 411) with a lovely view of a mountain (Kapuzinerburg, I think) and the street that leads to the river and old town (Linzergasse). * breakfast terrace * air con (though no visible controller, so we were mystified how it turned itself off and on) AND fan * tablet for internet and local information * substantial storage space (great if staying for multiple nights) * free coffee and tea in the lobby (but no kettle in the room). There's also a small bar on site. * immaculate housekeeping * friendly and efficient front desk * Breakfast can be quite busy, and while there are enough tables, most are quite close together so it almost feels cafeteria style. Sheer numbers of guests can deplete stocks pretty fast, but the staff did well keeping up. Be prepared for only 1 hot dish: scrambled eggs. There's quite a satisfactory spread of cold food/continental options. * Not really an issue, but the only toiletries are 2 small bar soaps and a wall-mounted shower gel in the shower. The hotel sells the Salzburg Card, too. The stark hallways look like dormitories, but behind the white walls and doors are quite comfortable rooms!

This hotel is on perfect location in Salzburg. Very friendly staff, efficient check-in. The inhouse parking fee of 15 EUR a day is fair. The rooms are enough space and it is nice a clean. Wifi is included in the room price and it works perfectly.

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.
