Overview

A true slice of Austria at this historic family-run hotel on the banks of the River Salzach

The Lowdown

Located right on the banks of the River Salzach, Hotel Sacher’s rich history is evident in its décor: Think intricately carved dark wood ceilings, silk-lined walls, ornate fabrics and marble bathrooms. It has a quite a roll call of celebrity guests as everyone from Tom Hanks to the Dalai Lama has bedded down in one of the 113 elegant rooms and suites. Gastronomes will be spoilt for choice with no fewer than six options for dining and imbibing, from traditional Austrian cuisine at the Roter Salon to the elegant Sacher café with its legendary Sacher Torte.

In the Area

Hike the Mönchsberg Hill to visit the newish Museum der Moderne Salzburg, for both the art and the views. The Baroque Basilica of Maria Plain attracts many pilgrims, as well as visitors seeking the stunning view over Salzburg and the valley. Visit the Salzkammergut area (aka the Lake District) for hiking. Dine at Ikarus, a modern restaurant located in Hangar-7 (the private hangar of the creator of Red Bull). Each month a new guest chef fashions an entirely new menu. Mozart had his coffee at Tomaselli, the city’s oldest café, and so should you.

Good service at the hotel, very firendly!
But this hotel is very old. We got lucky and got the "newly" renovated room. The bed was so hard that both of us woke up several times at night. The pillow was so soft that it was better without it. The room was clean and whit a good minibar.
Didn't try the breakfast

Small room...big price...

Beautiful hotel! but from all of the hotels we stayed at on this Europe trip, this was the most expensive AND the smallest. Room was in a newer wing, so I wish they would have squeezed out just a little more room for each room. No coffee maker in the room :-( and it was a real squeeze to have both my and hubby's suitcases out on a stand, and still have enough room to walk around. I had even "upgraded" from a standard room, so next time maybe it'll have to be a suite ?? Amenities were nice. Bathroom was probably as big as the room itself.... nicely done and since I've been traveling thru Europe there are small things I appreciate in the bathroom - a proper door is one of them and this had one for sure.

Can't beat the LOCATION as well - just across the bridge from the shopping district and not terrible far from the train station. Definitely a top notch hotel -- just a little tight quarters for two.

A weekend of pleasure

A delightful city visit staying at the Sacher Hotel overlooking the river. The staff were always friendly and helpful. The food was absolutely delicious especially the chocolate cake they are so famous for!

A short but memorable stay

A truly fantastic experience in a top-quality hotel. Having been through Salzburg on a number of occasions when skiing, this time I got the opportunity to stop over in the perfect location to learn more about this wonderful city and its incredible history – a guided walking tour is an absolute must.The whole package left me with an undoubted "must return" feeling!

Beautiful hotel, great location!!

Everything about our stay here was wonderful. There was a mini Sacher torte for each of us when we arrived in our room which was newly remodeled and had amazing balcony views! The staff was always helpful and kind. The breakfast was good as well as the hotel’s bar. Loved the fact that they had valet parking. We did not try the restaurant in the hotel.
