0.51km from Organic PizzaWe rented 2 rooms here on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day for my husband, myself and my 2 daughters in their 20s. A few weeks beforehand I emailed the hotel about restaurant reservations and Mass times for the holiday and they were very helpful with providing answers to both. Staff onsite during our stay were very nice and helpful as well. As other reviewers have mentioned, the location is in the new town rather than the old town. It was a 10-15 minute walk to the Sound of Music tour, Mirabellplatz, and the beginning of the old town. It probably wouldn’t be a problem in the nice weather but it was cold and rainy during our time there. Luckily street parking was free for the holiday so we drove and parked around Mirabellplatz and then walked into the old town. We also paid 15 euro a day to park at the hotel. Breakfast was average and similar to what we had seen on this 10 day trip to Germany and Austria. They had cheeses, cold meats, cereal, yogurt, fruit, homemade bread & jams and eggs - scrambled and hard boiled - no hot meats like sausage or bacon though. The rooms were a bit on the smaller side with no mini fridge but the beds were comfortable and it was clean. The WiFi was very strong and we were able to stream a movie on our laptop at night. At other hotels on this trip that was not possible. Our room had a clear shower so if you were hanging your coat/clothes in the storage area, you could see another person in the shower. We found similar rooms in Germany where the bathroom had a clear door, so I guess that’s a style around here but we did not like it. Our rooms were on the 2nd floor and it was very warm. We actually had the windows open and a stand up fan on (provided in the room) at night. Since it was Christmas time, there wasn’t much open nearby but we did find an awesome Italian restaurant only 2 blocks away that we enjoyed - Ristorante Beccofino. We also enjoyed our Christmas Eve dinner reservation at BRAURESTAURANT IMLAUER. All in all, this was a decent budget friendly hotel if you don’t mind being outside of the old town.
