Let me start with the positives. First off, I don't think you can find a hotel with better location in Salzburg if you are there to see the sites. You are literally at the junction of the two main thoroughfares putting you very close to just about any of the main tourist attractions. Secondly, the view from the rooftop bar makes up for a lot of the shortcomings of this hotel. Spectacular. Especially at night.
My issues lie with what is advertised on their website and what I actually got. On the website, the rooms look fantastic with stylish furniture, luxurious upholstery and comfortable space. What I got was a more like a road side roach motel in a one stop light town. I get it. This place has probably been there for hundreds of years and supposed to have that old-world charm that so many European hotels have. I didn't see it. I just felt duped.
This might be the smallest hotel room I have ever stayed in. It was a little warm for early December and there was no AC. An open window meant hearing every bar patron in the whole town on their way home talking as loud as possible. Noisy is a massive understatement. The carpet was dirty and worn. The floor was sloped. The hot water came and went.
That chic room that is shown on the website was certainly not where I stayed. My suggestion, find another hotel and go get a drink at the rooftop bar at Hotel Stein.
