Vienna, Austria

Spacious, well equipped rooms, superb old town location (100m to Festspielhaus), very friendly staff, rich and fresh breakfast - and this personal touch of diverse pieces of art hanging in hallways and staircases. Simply perfect.

Overall this was a great hotel and I'd stay here again. We had a Junior Suite room 316. The location of the hotel was perfect. The room was very clean, bathroom was HUGE and the décor was just like the pictures on their website. My only complaint is the awful red neon light in the courtyard that faced our windows....

Dear Kabnoaks, thank you for your 10 stars in total. I will talk to our facility manager to adjust the times for the piece of art by Lori Hersberger in our inner court.

I wrote a review of this lovely hotel 3 years ago, and have to write another one since we returned and spent a week in Salzburg. The location is PERFECT. RIght in the heart of Old Town. Yet the rooms have been soundproofed, so the noise from outside is never an issue. Rooms are large. Sparingly decorated. Spotlessly clean. Plenty...

We stayed in a standard double room for 2 nights. Excellent location right in the shopping district. A short 5 minute walk to the third party secure car park. Tip : drop your bags off near the hotel first before parking in the car park. Simple minimalistic decor in the Small-ish room but more than adequate. The room opens up...

The arthotel Blaue Gans has that perfect mix of a little bit of luxury, with wonderful service, great style and comfort in a perfect location. We actually arrived long before the room would be ready as it was an early flight, but we were given a warm welcome and our bags were stored so we could easily begin to explore...

Its right smack on the shopping district, the oldest street in Salzburg. Room a bit small but nice, clean and modern. breakfast was ok, nothing great but complete. I like this hotel because we can easily walk around even if its late at night.

I recently spent 3 nights here. The hotel is very well located. Within walking distance of many places you will want to visit. Quite an architectural feat to turn this historic building into a modern and comfortable hotel. The rooms are clean and well appointed, but a touch on the small side.
