Guest reviews for Schloss Mönchstein Hotel

Pros: The location was cool. We walked through a forest to the elevator that takes you into town.
Cons: Communication and truthfulness of refunds when promised.
Location: The city was lovely and home of the Sound of Music and the tour, which left from our hotel, was a highlight!
I booked this hotel for 4 nights and immediately realized we land the next day and so cancelled our first night. However, when we arrived, after traveling for 30 hours straight and exhausted with jet lag, the staff met us to say we did not make our first night and they were charging us for it. This ruined our whole experience in Austria and I was stressed out every time I saw a staff member as they would ask about our payment. After 3 days, at check out, I told them I was sorry about the first night but I had cancelled so would not pay for it. They said we didn't have to pay and if I paid our visa bill they would give me cash back for the first night. As we drove away, however I notice the room rate was triple what they gave me Euros. I felt like they tricked me into taking cash and never meant to refund the first night and took advantage of us not knowing euros and being jet lagged, etc. Not the best way to start our European vacation but luckily it got better as we took a Baltic Princess Cruise that was amazing.

A delightful hotel in all respects

Pros: The staff were wonderful
Cons: Not a thing
I almost cancelled my reservation because I was uneasy that the hotel was a bit farther away from the old town. I am SO glad that I didn't. This hotel was elegant without being stuffy. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The restaurant was excellent with lots of little extras (amuse bouche - don't you just love that phrase?) for dinner and breakfast. The walk/elevator to town (approx.15 minutes) was actually a bonus because we got to experience a lovely stroll, exquisite views and a little nature each day. Our room was spacious, clean and had it's own patio. I would highly recommend this hotel for its tasteful elegance and a true spirit of hospitality.

The highlight of our stay in Salzburg!

Pros: Location was excellent. Absolutely delicious breakfast. Outdoor pool with the breathtaking view.
Cons: We loved everything!!
Everything was perfect: the location, the view, the room, breakfast. We got upgraded to Junior Suite. The staff was extremely profesional and helpful. Breakfast was amazing. Room luxurious, very comfortable and very quiet. This hotel was the highlight of our stay in Salzburg. Expensive but worth every Euro. I would do it again.

Not close to the attractions

Pros: Very nice room and excellent service.
Cons: It should be more clear at the time of booking that you might not have any view at all either from your room or from the public areas of the hotel.
I booked this hotel because other reviewers said the hotel had a spectacular view of Salzburg. The room we got had no view at all, but rather was in a "daylight basement" area looking out into the side yard. Nor were there views from the common areas. The hotel is at the top of a hill quite a distance from anything you'd want to see in Salzburg, and also quite a distance from any public transportation. I don't recommend it because there's no view and it's so far away from everything, but I give it good ratings because the room itself was very nice and the staff was helpful and friendly. Nicest room I've ever had in Europe, in fact, and probably the nicest service, too. If you are the taxi-taking type who likes a nice room and great service, this hotel could be right for you, but if proximity to the activities and a nice view is more important, and if you take public transportation everywhere and walk where the trains and trams don't go, then there are better choices. The exact location of the hotel was a bit difficult to pinpoint using internet mapping applications, so I will comment on that: You take the "art museum" elevator to the top of the hill, then the hotel is about a 400 yard walk north from there, along the top of the hill.
