At this 1866 grande dame on the Salzach River, almost every “charming room” affords a view of the Old Town and the fortress, while inside the focus is on oil paintings, Austrian antiques, and rugs. The glass-roofed lobby is the hotel’s centerpiece. “Despite the small rooms and dated decor, I choose to stay here again and again. The staff are incredibly knowledgeable and always happy to help.” Roter Salon serves regional and international cuisine, while Café Sacher dishes up its signature chocolate torte. Zirbelzimmer, with dark wood and hunting memorabilia, is meat-heavy, with such dishes as ox fillet and beef consommé.
