Broken Ribs!!

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 16, 2010

I slipped and fell in the shower the first day at the hotel and broke two ribs. Be VERY careful when entering the right side of the shower since it is sloped. There is not a slip free surface on it. Was the hotel helpful? Heck no!! I will never again visit a Crowne Plaza or ihg.com hotel and recommend you do the same.

We booked into this hotel due to attending a international conference within the hotel. The hotel is noted for being on the "wrong side of the river" but actually its in a great walking distance to all major attractions.

The Crowne Hotel is located one block from Mirabelle Gardens and approximately 10 minutes walk through the beautiful gardens to Old Town. Its a very comfortable and pleasant hotel with delightful restaurants and facilities.

Check- in – Fast and efficient

Room – Our room 311 is called a suite which is slightly larger than a normal standard room. The room consists of a king size bed, lounge suite, coffee table and good size working desk with Internet connection. (no broadband) mini Bar and tv is also supplied. Other conference members staying in standard size rooms said their rooms were also extremely agreeable too.

Bathroom – Spacious with shower over bath and two vanity basins. The bathroom appears to have been recently renovated . Separate toilet off the lounge room.

Restaurants – Breakfast is served in the lobby level and offers excellent variety with friendly staff. The main restaurant is called Rainerstube which is elegantly furnished offering an traditional menu with good quality food. Its however rather expensive.

Unique Quality: Downstairs in the basement is a lovely cosy casual restaurant and bar called Pitter Keller which serves traditional meals and local specialities. Its a great place to dine if one is looking for a casual meal. There is also an outdoor garden terrace opened during summer months.

Bar – There is the Plaza bar located on lobby level which serves coffee and drinks. It has a delightful atmosphere and is fabulous place for an after dinner drink closing at 1.00am. The other bar is located in the basement which also offers a warm and relaxing atmosphere closing at midnight.

Facilities – There is a gym, sauna, solarium and swimming pool located in the basement.

Parking – is available around the corner of the building. A daily fee is charged EUR20-.

Overall – We stayed for five days and found the Crowne to be excellent. Its a comfortable and well organized hotel with friendly and efficient staff. I highly recommend it for those looking for reasonable rates with a touch of class and elegance.

Tip – If driving this hotel can be difficult to find, follow the hotel route sign and look for the Sheraton as the Crowne is just opposite. (no sign for the Crowne).

refurbished tradition !

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)

For decades the "Hotel Pitter" was a traditional Salzburg landmark, buildt around a famous beer-cellar. A hotel, made for farmers, coming to town as well as for businessmen and the hoards of tourists Salzburg is hosting the year round. In the 90ies, Hotel Pitter was refurbished and modernised into a top-hotel under the "Crowne Plaza" flag.
Offering a fine restaurant and the traditional Pitter-cellar , a bar, pool and fitness-center, the Pitter leaves no wishes open. Rooms are large, modern and offer all amenities of a 4-star hotel.
If you like to sleep early, omit to book a room with "garden-view", as the lifely beergarden noises won`t allow you to catch your sleep before 10pm
The Pitter is situated in the centre of Salzburg. Located next to the beautiful Mirabell Garden, opposite the Salzburg Congress Centre and only five minutes' walking distance to the Old Town.

Unique Quality: A traditional Salzburg hotel modernised and refurbished, centrally located.

Directions: by the Mirabell Gardens and -Castle,near to Salzburgs Central Railway Station

Very nice hotel. Very clean and well kept. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Great location. Very easy walk to just about anywhere (fortress, mozart house, St. Peter's, etc.) Prices start at around 80 euro a night.

A Good Night's Rest

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 16, 2004

The rooms at the Pitter were nice, a little larger than I expected given European standards and overall comfortable. The king size bed was just two double beds pushed together, but was otherwise comfortable. Both the hotel itself and the rooms were modern and recently updated. The food was typical Austrian - not bad, but relatively bland compared to U.S. standards. The restaurant in the basement was the best out of the three in the hotel we ate in.

Unique Quality: The best part of the hotel was the bar. We do not drink a lot, but due to the rain, we spent a lot of time in the hotel bar with others attending the conference we were attending at the hotel. The bartenders spoke English well and were generally conversational, though they were not necessarily exceptionally friendly - more along the lines of "tolerant." The wine was generally very good.

Directions: Across the river from Old Town and about four blocks from Mozart's Birthplace. But we found Salzburg to be very easy to get around and we felt close to everything we wanted to see and do.
