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.

Beautiful establishment
Reviewed 2 days ago

If your looking for a special occasion place to stay in Salzburg Hotel Sacher is the place to stay. Excellent location, superbly opulent rooms and friendly knowledgeable staff. The only one small complaint is that one of the front desk staff had recommended an italian resturant called Pan e Vin that was not good. They really should not suggest this establishment. But other than this small mis-step the Hotel Sacher is accomedations at their finest.

Beautiful hotel, very friendly staff, luxurious rooms.

Family stay in a deluxe suite. We loved it from the moment we checked in. Hotel offered upgrade then booked dinner in a local restaurant and proposed few activities.
Rooms are luxurious.
Location is perfectly central and close to parks and the old town.

Delightful December Stay

We stayed for 2 nights from 6/12 to 8/12/2018 as a pre Christmas break. We booked the stay earlier in the year and were aware from trip adviser reviews that the hotel was being refurbished during the year. We emailed the hotel shortly before our stay to request a refurbished room if possible as we had both celebrated 50th Birthdays during the year and this was our last cebration holiday of the year.
Upon arrival we were shown to a beautiful , riverside view room and we had a wonderful Sacher Torte gift and fruit display for us to enjoy from the hotel. This was such a wonderful gesture.
The room was beautifully decorated, finished to a very high standard and spotlessly clean . The hotel itself was immaculate and although refurbishment was being done in the hotel, we heard no noise and experienced no disruption.
The Christmas tree in the lobby was exceptional . The breakfast was very nice, plenty of choice of hot and cold dishes and the breakfast room itself felt comfortable.
All staff were extremely friendly and helpful.
We must give a special mention though to Silvester who was so helpful, informative upon our arrival and went out of his way to ensure we had a taxi to take us to the airport for our return journey.
Silvester was extremely pleasant and is an asset to the hotel.
The hotel is ideally situated for sightseeing and we would highly recommend to all. We ate in the Restaurant on the second night and the fillet steak was superb. We returned to our room later that night to find a sack bag hung on the door containing Christmas chocolate figurines , satsumas and nuts. This was such a nice touch.
We would like to thank all staff for making our stay so enjoyable and for giving us some very nice memories of Salzburg .

Another excellent Sacher experience

The Sacher properties in Salzburg and Vienna are so special because they blend the best of old-world hospitality, elegant design, and modern convenience. We have loved Hotel Sacher Vienna for many years, and this was our first time staying at the family's only other hotel, Hotel Sacher Salzburg. It was an excellent 7-night stay thanks to the beautiful property, the stunning views of the city, and the friendly and competent staff. Both hotels run so smoothly, and even over the course of a week-long stay, nothing ever went wrong, and we never felt disappointed. There are not many family-owned, luxury hotels anymore, but the few that exist tend to be uniquely special places. Hotel Sacher, Baur au Lac, and Hotel Hassler are some of our favorites, and we are grateful for the families and teams that give so much energy, with such attention to detail, to make our travel experiences memorable and rewarding.
