Salzburg It is the fourth city of Austria in population. It extends along the banks of the Salzach River, in a privileged enclave between the mountains of the Austrian Alps. Its old part or old city is one of the best preserved in the country, declared a World Heritage Site by Unesco
On the chosen date, December 31, 2009, end of the year, the choice of accommodation that met minimum requirements, being fairly central, was a complicated search. Already in September / October when we began the election, of the more than 240 possibilities there were barely 40 left, possibly many of them blocked by tourism agencies. However, among them, we find the perfect option, the Centralhotel Gabrelbrau, an old house dating from 1408 located in the historic heart of the city and less than 1 minute from Mozart's house.
To manage the reservation, we have used the well-known service of trivago (with the possibility of cancellation up to 15 days before arrival at the accommodation) although the hotel has own website With good offers from 3 days HERE.
The price is around, at this time of year, the € 138 per night and room.
his Location It is privileged, just a few meters from the House of Mozart and the Staatsbrucke bridge that gives access to the old area, the Cathedral and the main square
The room, considering that it is an old remodeled house, it is spacious but not very bright. It has all kinds of comforts: television, hairdryer, soaps, safe, etc ...
The cleaning both the room and the hotel facilities are total, everything is in perfect condition
Although without a doubt, if the hotel boasts something, it has two services. The first, his excellent breakfast buffet. The second, his restaurant, where the best dishes of the city are served. However, although it has internet, it lacks WIFI service.
Already back from our getaway we offer you the usual "GUIDED VISIT" of the hotel with us.
Although there is no cheap accommodation at this time of year, the Centralhotel Gabrelbrau has been one of the great successes, not only for its comfort and cleanliness, but especially for its Location, in Linzergasse street, very close to all the destinations of the city on foot and also one of the liveliest streets.
The roomsAs promised, they are spacious and clean, with a small but sufficient bathroom and with provision of the main services that a room should have today (telephone, television, hairdryer, safe, soap, etc ...)
He breakfast The hotel, despite having a very good reputation, has seemed "just" right. It is also true that we left very early and were still putting new things on the buffet.
In addition to what has already been said, we would like to highlight the phenomenal Christmas atmosphere and good taste with which they have decorated the reception and the restaurant.
The we would recommend? Without a doubt, it is a good place to stay if the price is not an impediment although perhaps at another time of the year you can find more options of good quality / location / price. To the taste of the consumer ...
