TripAdvisor Rating


This historic hotel is located in Old Town and has been operating as a hotel since the 1400s. Each of its 70 guestrooms and suites are decorated with original antiques and handmade furniture to make you feel as if you have stepped back in time. Families will prefer suites for more space and accommodations, including the Festival Wing Room and One-Bedroom Suite, each with sitting area with couches. Unfortunately, the hotel cannot accommodate four or more guests in one room, and families will need to book multiple rooms when traveling together. The hotel’s s’Herzl restaurant has been operating since 1407 and today still serves traditional Austrian dishes between noon and 9 p.m. The Goldener Hirsch restaurant is the hotel’s main restaurant, providing lunch from noon to 2:30 p.m. and dinner from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Once a month, a family lunch is offered on Sundays from noon to 3 p.m. Free Wi-Fi is offered to all guests. The hotel is a member of the Starwood Hotels & Resorts group.

Outstanding hotel

by GrandTour269343

Beautifully recently renovated rooms have all modern conveniences with a traditional Austrian decor. Service by everyone we encountered was truly 5 star. A high level of professionalism and pride demonstrated by everyone in all roles. A great 5 star hotel!

Wonderful place and great location

Hotel Goldener Hirsch is part of Marriot’s Luxury Collection Hotels. It is an upscale hotel that is in 2 historic buildings in the UNESCO area of Salzburg, right on the main walkway. Upon entering the lobby, one is warmly greeted. As a Marriot elite member, we were given a chocolate bar and then led to our huge room where they had to explain some things. The hotel had been recently renovated and reopened (they are still finishing up some things). Yet a few legacy things still existed. One was the light switches (which they claim were a legacy but were going to be replaced). To turn them on, you either turn the knob left or right, fast or slow…whichever works. We often gave up. The new toilets are “washer” toilets with a remote control for a cleaning process (we did not use this feature). But try to find the button to flush? Well, it took a few minutes. And the button stuck so we had to call in help (who came with a screw driver) to release the button so that we could flush. Yes, they are still working out the kinks. Then there is the expresso machine in the room. Thank goodness they gave us instructions on how to get hot water from it. Where is a normal hot pot that works easily? That all aside (and not enough to stop us from returning), the room was wonderfully comfortable and huge. The beds, the pillows, the slippers, bathrobes….wonderful. We had a deep tub (which we didn’t use, a shower, double sinks, magnifying mirror and, yes, more chocolate on our our pillows and chocolate with the in-room coffee/tea. Windows were doubled paned so keep out noise. As the AC didn’t seem to cool the room sufficiently, we opened up the windows in the shower/tub area which kept the whole space cool. The room had motion sensored under-cabinet lights which illuminated when you made your way to the bathroom at night or when you just walked by them. A very welcomed addition. Good wifi and good space. This is the place I want to return to if ever in the area.
