Our room was a reasonable size in the modernised Meierhof. We thought it was quiet and comfortable with a good well equipped and reasonably sized shower room. The location suits us perfectly — the walk to the altstadt is through pleasant parkland on good tracks and took us between 20 and 30 minutes: this was so much more attractive that...

This was a beautiful hotel and the grounds and home are simply awe inspiring. We had a really scrumptious breakfast and would highly recommend for anyone staying in Salzburg. You will not be disappointed.

The hotel was used for the filming by the lake for the Sound of Music, and staying here is the only way that you can stand by the lake on that famous patio. The main house is fantastic, if you like fine old buildings. The Venetian room is breathtaking, and was used to recreate the ballroom in the film. The...

We really enjoyed our stay at the Leopoldskron. We arrived in the early evening and enjoyed a drink on the lawn / patio looking at the beautiful Untersberg mountain. It truly is an idyllic setting and can't be beat. We had 6 people in 3 rooms. One in the palace, which was great. The annex is terrific too, but ask...

Dear melbjohn Thank you for staying with us and for your review. Indeed, although we are in Salzburg, we are about 25 minutes walking distance from the Old Town.
