The Hotel Sacher made our trip to Austria the best trip ever!!! The service was exemplary, and yet the staff gave us plenty of space and did not hover over us. The rooms were extremely comfortable, the breakfast buffet was very complete and gave us a great start to our day, and we looked forward to a special dessert at the Cafe Sacher at the end of a fun-filled day of travel. Also, the wifi was excellent and much appreciated. We were also grateful that everyone we encountered spoke excellent English. The location was perfect for exploring all of the old sections of Salzburg within a short walk.

I actually don't know whether the Sacher is the best hotel in Salzburg, but as far as we are concerned, it is. From our room overlooking the river, to the service, to the food and drinks at the restaurant, café and bar, everything is top notch.

Good located hotels with small rooms, even the Junior Suites are tiny. You don´t get what you pay as it´s overpriced.

Stay at this hotel if you're visiting Salzburg !! What a fabulous location Riverfront, staff was exceptional, 1 block to the Marionette Theatre ( a must see ), near Old City and adjoining within a few block radius to exceptional shopping.
