Room cleanliness & condition was not top notch. Specifically, there were marks on wall to left as one enters room and obvious stain/spot on carpet about size of saucer at desk. We stayed a Thurs & Fri night, and while Thurs was quiet & comfortable, on Fri the noise from the Main Street outside our 3rd floor window work us several times.

Great location and very nice hotel!

Pros: Everything
We were able to walk from the train station a few blocks to the hotel. The Sound of Music Tour is just a block away . Walking to the City Center was close. The staff was very friendly and spoke english which was a plus for us. The hotel was clean and very nice, no carpet which I love. I would for sure stay here again. There is an awesome Chinese buffet across the street, I normally do not eat buffets, but this was really good.

Great Central Location, 24 Hour desk and friendly

Pros: Great location, 24 hour friendly desk, nice reasonable priced restaurant, and very clean
Cons: The room was warm, even with windows open. We were there March 2018 and it was between seasons, so the heat was still on.
Location: We took a sound of music tour which departs within a 5 - 10 min walk (at a slow pace). It was a good way to see around the city and into the mountian
The hotel was in a great location mid way between the central train station and town. Both are only a 10 min or so walk. Streets are well lit all around and never felt uncomfortable, even when walking to the train station at 4:30 am. The room descriptions on line from others were spot on. The hotel sits next to the train tracks, so you will hear them all night. We sleep well, so it was not a problem for us. We selected a small room to keep the rates down. Even though it was small, it was exactly what we choose and was not too small. We had plenty of space. The room came with coffee and tea, and was very clean. Reception desk was great and very helpful. Also, the restaurant in the hotel was great. It had local foods and was not priced any higher than other comparable ones in the area and made it nice at the end of the day. I would stay here again.

Wonderful hotel, centrally located.

Cons: Well... maybe the breakfast at the hotel restaurant. It was adequate but lacked fresh fruit. That's just us.
Location: Easy access to buses on their way to Untersberg, Sound of Music tour :), and other attractions. Local farmers markets and street faire too.
Can't say enough good things about the Imlauer and Brau. If the central location isn't enough, the comfort of the pillows and bedding would make it worth our stay! The room was quiet. A/C worked perfectly. The bathroom was huge and clean. The staff went out of their way to accommodate us. All amenities were available upon request. We were less than 5 minutes walking distance from Mirabel Gardens as well as trams and buses to everywhere. The neighborhood cafes and restaurants were delicious and delightful. We would definitely stay there again!

Nice hotel close to train station and old town

Pros: Location, condition
Cons: none
Location: Short walk to train station. A 20 minute to river and old town, but interesting things on the way.
We travelled by train so this was a short haul with the luggage. Nice clean rooms. A bit of a walk to Old Town but not bad. It worked well for us.

Dear Anne, Thank you so much that you have been our guest and took the time for this very good feedback. I am happy to hear that you liked your stay in the IMLAUER & Bräu and were very satisfied with the comfortable location of the hotel. And you are so right about the beautiful walk across the river. The way leads you through the famous Mirabell palace gardens with an excellent view to the castle of Salzburg. And the riverside itself is very scenic with beautiful houses lined up on both sides. It would be nice to welcome you again in the future. With best regards, Monika Seibold, Hotel Manager

Good, clean, & convenient

Pros: Convenient; small.
Location: "Mozart house" is a very good museum. The "Dom quartier" is a great series of museums, all connected, for one admission fee, at cathedral square.
The location is excellent: between the train station (four blocks from one end of it) and many of the downtown sights (about 6-7 blocks to old part of the city; Salzburg is compact). A tour started 3 blocks from the hotel; we walked to its starting point rather than wait for a free pick-up at the hotel half an hour before the start of the tour. (The hotel desk made the tour arrangement for us, promptly and correctly.) We stayed two nights in winter (a snowless time in January). The hotel was very clean and room was warm in the cold weather. Person at the desk spoke English well enough to communicate well. We had a dinner and a breakfast in the hotel restaurant, both good. Breakfast was a 12 Euro buffet, with lots of choices and coffee in a thermal carafe on the table before you sit down. Be aware that the name was recently changed (we were there Jan., 2016), so our taxi driver "corrected" us by giving the old name, which was similar. Fortunately, we knew that the hotel was close to the train station, so we weren't worried about being taken to the wrong hotel. (And we could have walked the distance; we did, going back to the train two days later.)

Dear Jim, Thank you so much for this very good and detailed review. I am quite delighted to hear how much you enjoyed your stay in the IMLAUER & Bräu. The location of the hotel is indeed very convenient to explore the city on foot, but also in near access to public transports and the starting point of bus tours. It is good to hear that you were very satisfied with the professionality of our staff. Thank you for visiting our restaurant and having breakfast and dinner as well – both of which you liked very well. It has been nice to have you as our guest and we would be happy to welcome you again. With best regards, Monika Seibold, Hotel Manager

Salzburg Experience

9/24/09 I could'nt have picked a better hotel. I was a little skeptical by the picture on the web site. As it turned out it was terrific. Location was ideal, was able to walk every where. Ten minute walk from the train station.
