“Great location for railway”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2012

The hotel is a walkable 5 mins from the main Salzburg train station and is only a 10 min walk to Mirabell and a further 5 to the old town. Our room was very clean and spacious. Facilities were great; in room we had free wi-fi, a kettle, tea and coffee replenished each day. I took advantage of the 3 saunas, turkish steam room and small gym on the 4th floor. A great way to relax after a hard days sightseeing. There is a restaurant in the hotel which we did not use, but seemed reasonable prices with some vegetarian options. We also did not take breakfast, instead choosing to use the cafe in the lower ground floor of the small Kiesel shopping centre, opposite. (this also has a Subways and Billa supermarket). If you are staying some time and want to do laundry there is Bubble Point laundrette near the train station on Karl-Wurmb-Straße 2. We stayed 6 nights and paid £70 a night in May and felt this was great value considering the facilities and location on offer.

Room Tip: Book early to get deals on this hotel. May is a great time to visit Salzburg.

My son and I stayed in the hotel for 4 nights and loved it. The rooms were spacious, clean and walking distance to almost everything. The resturant was good and the staff was very helpful. We would stay here again anytime. We arrived by train and it was a very easy walk to the hotel. We also enjoyed the sauna on the top floor of the hotel after walking the city and taking tours.. great place.

Nice hotel walking distance from the railway station. Has also parking available for driving guests. We had a huge room with big bathroom and a separate toilet room with a sink. Towels and linen clean and of good quality. We did not have breakfast. Staff helpful and polite. We did not use the rooftop sauna. A good place to stay in Salzburg.

Achat Plaza Zum Hirschen is wonderfully located near the train station and walking distance from Mirabell Gardens and close enough to the old town. The staff, overall was friendly and helpful. Daniel was probably the most friendliest of the staff.

The rooms were very spacious. However, the beds were very hard and the noise level from the street was LOUD. If we closed the windows, the room would get very hot and stuffy. We tried to turn the fan on, but it would just blow hot hair...or worse, we could smell what was cooking in the restaurant. The furnishings were outdated....super outdated.

Perhaps we were spoiled with our hotel in Paris, but Achat should have at least been similar in quality as they were both rated 4 Star hotels. The difference in quality was day and night. At best, I would rate Achat a 2.5 star. It received 4 stars perhaps because of the location?

12 Euros for breakfast per person was not appropriate for this property. Although 12 Euros is not a lot, you can find better breakfast at near by restaurants for a lot less....near Mirabell Gardens.

Although we spent very little time in our room, we would have enjoyed a more comfortable accommodation after long days of touring.

Room Tip: Do not elect the breakfast. Find better breakfast at nearby restaurants for A LOT less.

We stayed at the Achat Plaza for 3 nights. The Hotel is located about three to four blocks from the Salzburg train and bus station. The staff at the Hotel was very helpful and easy to deal for any additional request.

The location is a plus for any tourist or business person because the hotel has a large private parking lot for those that rent or use a car.

The room was well laid out and clean. The bathroom shower was a little small but I didn't mind that too much like I need to sleep on it. They offer free Wifi, TV (not flat screen but I didn't care too much about it), heating and air on the rooms (not all hotels in Europe offer A/C). Also, there is a little refrigerator for your use if you want to go to and buy at the gocery store or the Shell gas station and put there your wine, beer etc... plus you get you wine & beer glass ware. You also have at your disposition an electric kettle to make tea or coffee (for those that need their morning pick me up first sip). Plenty of space on the furnitures to store your clothes or other items. For valuables the room comes with a safe.

Breakfast is not free but it cost 12 euro per person. It might be a little bit high for some but they do have a great selection of meats, cheeses, bread, cereals etc. They have a nice bar for those that need to have some beers or any nite cap.

Just be careful with the light fixtures laid out on the walls of the rooms if you are a little bit tall (5',10" or 1.78 meters plus), you can bump your head and it hurts. I will recommend the hotel to remove those fixtures and place them somewhere else.

Other than that the Achat Plaza is nice Hotel to spend some nights in Salzbrug.
