Individual ratings for Hotel Goldgasse

Location
The hotel is located in the very heart of Salzburg on Goldgasse, a narrow street in the historic town centre.
Ambience
It is a successful symbiosis of modern Italian design and ancient vaulted architecture: historic stucco, old stone floors, antique pillar fragments, remnants of a fresco, quotes from the past – a hotel with many a tale to tell.
Infrastructure
In-house restaurant, two kinds of breakfast which are being served in your room; your choice of pillow.
Culinary
The cosy restaurant of the same name as the hotel is located on the lower floor and serves an excellent choice of seasonal Austrian dishes, very down-to-earth and made from local ingredients.

Hotel Goldgasse Hotel, Salzburg

Having been turned into a stylish boutique hotel, this 14th century Salzburg inn opened its historic quarters to the public in spring 2015. Rather than being christened something fancy, the hotel's name simply picks up on the picturesque street it is located on, "Goldgasse," which in turn is named after a goldsmith who once upon a time plied his trade here. The hotel was completely refurbished, its corridors are decorated with photographs of opera and concert performances, the rooms are named after operas, all bearing testimony to the fact that music and the Salzburg Festival are as much part of the city as Mirabell Palace. It is, after all, Mozart's hometown. Each of the 16 rooms has an entire wall decorated with large-scale photographs of the Salzburg Festival taken by Italian photographer Luigi Caputo, creating an unique ambience.
Price range
If you had no luck trying to get a ticket for a Cecilia Bartoli performance, you may behold her in your own room, in a shot taken from her performance in "Giulio Cesare." The photographic wallpapers depicting scenes from various operas will make you feel as if you were right at the Salzburg Festival.
The hustle and bustle on Goldgasse and inside the restaurant can be heard in the rooms close to the main spiral staircase.
