Located in a very interesting and convenient spot in Salzburg, the Auersperg hotel is rated as one of the best hotels in the city. It is a typical Austrian four star hotel and offers only the best of the best! From the moment we arrived untill the time we left, we felt great. The staff is just wonderful and will do their upmost best to serve you in a fantastic way.
Upon arrival, everything is explained in a friendly yet professional way. The lobby is just wonderful. Our keys were handed in just seconds before we headed to our wonderful room.
The superior garden view room we stayed in had a great size and is comfortably appointed. All rooms at the Auersperg hotel have been renovated recently and are of a four star level. Standard amenities are a Nespresso coffee machine, HD television and a safe. I especially appreciated the reading and tourist information books and music system with several cd’s for your enjoyment. Plenty of sockets in the room as well which is rarely the case at most hotels! Loved it! Bathroom was great featuring a large walk-in rain shower, single sink and toilet. Every spot in the room was spotlesly clean and the heated bathroom floor was very convenient and comfortable.
A true highlight of the Auesperg hotel is the City Spa, located on a second floor. When we were in Salzburg it was freezing and it was absolutely amazing to relax in the spa after a day spent in the cold. The spa is opened from 5pm – 10pm but if you wish to use it earlier just ask the reception. There’s a traditional sauna, a steam room and an excellent relax area with comfortable loungers. They offer several beauty treatments as well at affordable rates. I relaxed in the steam room, read a book afterwards, closed my eyes and enjoyed the very relaxing music. It was the perfect way to end my day. By the way, bathrobes and slippers can be found in the room.
There’s also a large business center with meeting room and printing facilities.
The next morning we had breakfast in the restaurant downstairs. It is a buffet style breakfast offering only fresh products. We sat down and the very accommodating staff immediately asked if we wanted some coffee and eggs. The food was delicious and I appreciated the mix of sweet and salt. There’s just something for everybody.
As said before, the location is excellent. The Auersperg hotel is located near the old town of Salzburg. It is only a 10 minute walk to the beautiful old city center. Make sure to visit the Sound of Music fountains and gardens too, the Mirabell Gardens and Mirabell Palace, which is also just a short walk away from the hotel.
Our stay at the Auersperg hotel was wonderful and I can easily understand why it is rated as one of the best hotels in the city. From the personal approach to the comfortable rooms and amazing breakfast, the Auersperg hotel is top notch and I highly recommend to stay at this hotel when you are in Salzburg!
