The storied past of the former “Höllbräu” – today’s Radisson Blu Altstadt Hotel Salzburg – can be traced back to the year 1377, which makes it one of the most historic guest establishments in all of Salzburg. With a true love for detail, this listed historic site in the protected historic district of the Old City had been revitalised in 1966, so that the essence of this precious building, along with its many historically priceless features – such as the facades, old wood floors and wooden beam ceilings, as well as the striking roof forms – could be successfully preserved. All of the work was continually monitored by the Federal Monuments Office in Vienna. In 1992, the hotel was officially opened, with numerous state guests in attendance. Because of the dignified interior and such valuable interior details, the opening festivities were a definite highlight of 1992, especially since this had now become the most exclusive 5-star hotel in all of Austria.
The hotel was completely renovated with painstaking care in 2007, always with an eye to highlighting its historical elements and unique stature. So it is that today’s guest discovers an establishment that is rich in tradition, yet accompanied by all the amenities of a modern 5-star hotel. Barely will you have stepped through the entrance archway, which dates back to 1550, than you will be greeted by rooms which radiate a distinctive “esprit” and offer an array of comforts including flat-screen TV, W-LAN, gilded fittings and Untersberg marble in the bathrooms. Other exquisite features, such as antiques, oil paintings, Persian carpets and Biedermeier mirrors, add the finishing touches to the overall appearance of the hotel.
Whether they have views over the Salzach and the Kapuziner Abbey, the romantic city centre alleyways or the Hohensalzburg Castle high above the city, all of the 62 elegant and stylish rooms have the highest level of comfort and luxury. Furnished with a lot of care and loving attention to detail, no two rooms in the hotel are alike. Discover enchanting details from times long past, for example medieval wooden ceilings, parquet floors, stucco decorations or antique paintings – and experience the modern spirit of the recently completely renovated 5-star hotel with facilities such as direct dial telephone, flat screen TV and wireless internet (Wi-Fi) in all rooms and all areas of the hotel. All bathrooms in the hotel are finished with bright marble from the Untersberg mountain and have gold fittings. Bathrobes and slippers are also provided.
