“Best hotel in Salzburg!”
Reviewed 26 September 2011

This was one of our favorite hotels on our 2 week trip of Europe. This is a very nice, very clean, upscale hotel. The rooms are elegant: wood floors, rich colors (browns, silvers, purples), heavy velvet drapes, updated tile bathrooms. The windows are double paned- even though we were on the second floor we barely heard the street noise below.

The highlight of this hotel is the rooftop restaurant. It offers an AMAZING view of the city. During our one night stay, we went up there for a late afternoon snack, evening cocktails, and morning breakfast. We just could not get over the view!!! The breakfast spread was one of the most diverse, gourmet breakfasts we had on our entire trip. The coffee was excellent (this is coming from a former 10+ year Starbucks barista!).

The location of the hotel is very convenient. It is a short walk from Mozart's birthplace, the fortress, shopping, churches, etc.

I would ABSOLUTELY recommend a stay at the Hotel Stein!!

Room Tip: Get a room with a view of the river! Doesn't need to be on a higher floor to have a quiet room...

Stayed in Hotel Stein for one night in September while on business in Austria. It was good.

Rooms are clean and functional - couldn't really find any fault.

No free WIFI in rooms is a disadvantage although it is available in the lobby.

Breakfast was ok - nothing fancy but grand.

Lack of parking at the hotel was a disadvantage.

This was the worst value room we have ever stayed in. Unhelpful staff verging on the unpleasant - no-one showed us to the room which was poorly sign-posted or offered to help with luggage. No lift from ground floor. Room offered two basins as well as shower in the bathroom but only one bar of soap. No shower cap. No refrigerator in which to keep water cool. Breakfast on terrace had good view but nothing special about the buffet. On this trip we stayed in 8 other hotels, all of which included free wi-fi. This one wanted 3 euros an hour. Access by car difficult and only parking offered was 500m away and cost 13 euros a day. Wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone.

Expect very European service in the bar and restaurant -- nobody works for tips, so service is not the best. If you want good service at a table, you need to shell out a lot of euro at a higher-end restaurant. Great central location to the old city and shopping. Breakfast is good, drinks are good, views are terrific. Parking is NOT guaranteed - they will charge you for a parking spot but once you get to the lot, you may not find a free spot. They do not enforce towing like the signs say they do, so you might waste an evening just trying to get an alternative parking spot and getting the charge refunded. Save yourself the trouble and ask to park at the Mirabell Garage (no in/out privelages, but you're guaranteed a spot); the staff is younger and sometimes too cool for service, but it's a great hotel for it's location and charm.

Room Tip: top floor rooms beneath the bar are relatively quiet. only occasion hear the booming bass from djs
