Right in the heart of beautiful Salzburg, the Holiday Inn - Salzburg City is an excellent choice for your short break in the popular Austrian city. Salzburg’s Old Town is a short 15 minute walk away, where you can take in sights such as the Mirabell Palace and gardens, Mozart’s House, and board the world-famous Sound of Music Tour. A short 5km drive from Salzburg International Airport, the hotel is handily located for exploring Salzburg and the pretty lakes region around the city.
Comfortable and contemporary, the Holiday Inn - Salzburg City is a gleaming glass-fronted building, with far-reaching views of the mountain district from many of the hotel’s guestrooms. A home away from home, the Alpine-style bedrooms offer a welcome retreat after a long day of sightseeing. Wireless internet access is available in the hotel’s public areas.
Excellent for breakfast, lunch and dinner, the hotel’s superb restaurant IN(N)OVATION is on hand to serve you tasty international cuisine throughout the day, and the 24 hour Bar also serve up light bites and cocktails when you’re feeling peckish. To unwind to the max, make full use of the Holiday Inn - Salzburg City’s complimentary Mini Gym; a great place to blow off some steam.

We stayed three nights here during New Year's. Price was higher than what I normally pay at any HI, most likely due to it being a holiday. The good points: close enough walk from train station (about 15 minutes), close enough walk to city center (another 15 minutes), very nice staff. Towels a bit thin but big enough. Beds were comfortable and our room had a view of the street and the side of the closest berg - sort of facing towards city center but not able to see it. I think the Mercure across the street might have a better view (it blocked ours). We stayed in room 401. Now for the concerns: Sink in room cracked. Two very large noticeable stains on carpet. Door to bathroom has lost some screws, but instead of fixing it, scotch tape was used (ineffectively). Wifi first night was horrible, and we couldn't connect. I called downstairs and the receptionist mentioned something about resetting the router. Didn't work. Frustrated, I went to bed. The next morning, same thing. So I unplugged the connection in the room (see photo - it says to not disconnect it) and plugged it back in. This worked sort-of, but if I moved from the window to my bed it would disconnect. I had to keep doing this about a dozen times, but somewhere along the line either what I was doing or the router was actually reset at the desk downstairs, because we were fine the last two nights. We spent the entire last day walking about town and got back to the hotel about 3 pm and our room was not cleaned. So I went to desk, asked for it to be cleaned, and within 5 minutes housekeeping arrived. She cleaned, emptied trash, straightened beds, etc. while we were sitting there. Concerns: the glasses, coffee mugs and spoons were all washed out in the bathroom sink. Don't know what she used to dry them, but we made sure that we re-washed them before use (unfortunately we didn't know this the first two nights). The table in the room needed cleaning and she used a wet Kleenex. Not so sure about that method. They need a better translator, as the English sign in the lift had breakfast hours listed for pm, but most likely anyone reading it would assume that they don't serve breakfast at night. I am a loyal HI lodger, have a rewards account that has given me a higher status. My general expectations for any HI are to not expect much more than a good, comfortable room, good service from staff and a decent price. Most HI hotels are cookie-cutter in style and design. Knowing what I know about this hotel, I would stay here again for the convenience, and assume that the price would be lower for a non-holiday time stay. But I would definitely wash out all dishes and most likely pack some Lysol wipes and do a little cleaning on my own. Collapse

We stayed in the hotel in December 2016 during oyr honeymoon. Certainly we did the right choose, we liked everything, the room, the stuff, the view from hotel to the mountain was anazing. Additionally I would like to thank the administration for a surprize of fruit busket in the room. The breakfast was excellent, all sightseeing were foodstep close. We will certainly stay in this hotel while next time visiting Salzburg. I can recommend the hotel for both family stay and on business issues. Collapse

I am an IHG rewards card holder, stay in Holiday Inns all year round with business. This was for a romantic getaway however we were left disappointed. - Upon arrival we were told incorrect breakfast times despite checking 3 or 4 times. We missed breakfast the first day. - The bathroom had a foul smell. We were denied to be moved to another room. - Our room was not serviced until the third night, despite contact at reception. - When the room was serviced no toiletries/ towels were replaced/Tea not replaced/ mugs not replaced. - When trying to grab a quite bite of food at the hotel: The barman was rude and told us the restaurant closed an hour ago, despite us being an hour earlier than all hotel documentation listed. He did not help find another solution. No one was at check in to help. Thankfully the 'Mercur Hotel' over the road had friendly staff that suggested various places based on what we fancied. We tried to check into this hotel for the remainder of the stay but they were fully booked. Upon check out all this information was relayed to the management. A £850+ stay was compensated with.... A free pizza. Not acceptable. If you want to be in this area I can only suggest to book over the road at the Mercur Hotel. Collapse

We planned our Christmas holiday in Austria, and this is our first city started with. The hotel was good, room is clean and hotel stuffs are very friendly, helpful and serve with a smile. Heater working great, so don't worry about it even outside is very cold. Still, there're 2 factors need to consider if you want to choose this hotel. Location: It's quite far away from the attraction. 15-20 mins walk dist. from Train Station; 20-25 mins walk dist. from old town. If want to go old town by bus, you can get bus #2 at Sterneckstraße to Mirabellplatz then change other line to Hanusch-Platz. Or, you can get bus #4 at Grillparzerstraße, Schallmooser Hauptstraße, it will direct go to Hanusch-Platz. BTW, bus #2 can reach airport and train station too. Restaurants: Look at the google map then you will know there're only several choice for you to choose near the hotel. For our case is even worst, because most of the restaurant are closed during this holiday season, so it takes us some times to search for the food. Collapse

The room would not cool off, even if we left the window open and its 20 degrees F outside. The bed was hard as a rock. The housekeeping staff did the bare minimum and didn't even vacuum for several days. The complimentary drinks left in the room were already open when we arrived. Also, if you're a big hairy white man and you work at the front desk - wear and undershirt so we don't see everything through the thin white dress shirt. Collapse
