I love Salzburg. It is one of my favorite places in Europe. There is so much to see, do and eat in in the city and the surrounding areas. Finding a centrally located hotel to enjoy the centuries of history in Salzburg becomes an important task before arriving. Fortunately for us, we found a wonderful hotel smack-dab in the middle of Altstadt (Old Town) Salzburg.
Tucked in the middle of its name sake alley, the Goldgasse Hotel is a well-run, centrally-located luxury hotel. Two minutes from St. Peter’s Cathedral, two minutes from Getriedegasse (Grain Street), and Mozart Square, it is perfect place to rest and recover from a day of exploring all that Salzburg has to offer. (FYI, gasse - is street in German)
Part of Rinaldo Invernizzi’s Stein Hotel & Living Group, the Goldgasse Hotel exudes the fun side the Group’s stylish hotels while still being unpretentious and simple aesthetic. You will find glass bottles of still and sparkling Römerquelle water (I’ll take glass over plastic packaging!) in a SMEG mini fridge in your room. Soothing Kusmi Teas and Nespresso Coffee are also available. Rooms are spacious to stow away your gear. I’m infamous for cluttering a room.
When you walk in to your room, it feels like home. We loved the fact that our had a staircase that led to a private rooftop terrace. If you are six feet tall or over, do watch your head as you reach the top of the winding staircase!
Regretfully, there are aspects of the hotel that photos don’t capture. We pondered how to capture the feeling of tranquility and privacy at the hotel.
The service is impeccable and warm. Ulrike Koller, from Guest Relations, was immensely helpful during each of our stays. (We lit a candle for you at St. Peter’s)
Before forget, if you stay there, make sure you make reservations for a meal at their restaurant, Gasthof Goldgasse. The food is exquisite. It is a tiny restaurant and you must have reservations ahead of time to enjoy it. I highly recommend breakfast there at least once! I would have taken photos but I was too busy enjoying my Austrian früstrück.
