The B&B Kobenzi is open as of July 2014. I did not stay there, but rather with a friend from town, went there for drinks and to see the magnificent view of Salzburg. The hotel must have had a storied past, as many chairs in its Dining Room have the names of many a luminary that has stayed there in... More

This hotel closed in 2006 or 2007 and over the past five years a number of unsuccessful attempts have been made to find a new investor. A planned re-opening early in 2012 never happened. It was indeed a great place and for a while the Kobenzl was regarded as one of the top hotel in Salzburg. If you are looking... More

Very comfortable with friendly staff and outstanding food. I would go back anytime. It was very tempting to stay in the hotel all day and only look at Salzburg from a distance. The halfboard option for meals is a good deal. Food at hotel better than anything you would get for same price in town. The view is priceless. Taxi... More

Dear Reader, The Kobenzl is really a great hotel. The view is spectacular the food -- very good. To get to town, the desk will arrange a taxi -- fairly reasonable price. We stayed with two very young children. Lots to do. The desk is very good at booking excursions -- we did the "Sound of Music Tour", the "Luge... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here in December. We were visiting to go to the Xmas markets. I was slightly put off about the hotel when I read the review saying " not for young people" As me and my other half are both in our early 20's. We flew with Ryanair, got a morning flight so there were no... More

My wife and I stayed here on the last week of March and out expectations were met by this amazing hotel. Location- 15 minutes from Salzburg, costs about 20 euros from airport and 15 euros from city center. Located on a mountain with probably one of the best views overlooking salzburh and the alps.

We just spent a night at the Kobenzl in Salzburg and would wholeheartedly recommend this hotel as a wonderful, romantic, 5 star getaway. Located on a small mountain right outside Salzburg, the property offers stunning views of the city. There is a public bus to the hotel, but taking a taxi is an option too at about 12 to 15... More

We stayed at Hotel Kobenzl over Xmas 2004. The hotel has a wonderful view over Salzburg but this means it is quite isolated & therefore a car is necessary. The hotel website mentions a free Hotel-bus service which appears to be non-existent. The hotel bar closed up by 10.00pm each night (by turning lights off when still sitting there). Struggle...

By far, the main attraction of this hotel is the view. It is a view lovers' Nirvana! The hotel is situated above Salzburg. A quiet serenity surrounds the hotel - a natural cure for high blood pressue! A truly relaxing atmosphere. The hotel is a large house with multiple sections with eveything styled to maximize the view. The restaurant has... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our home is quite an old lady: In the 60ies, 70ies and 80ies people like Margaret Thatcher, Richard Nixon and Jose Carreras stayed here to enjoy the unique view. Today only the furniture is reminiscent of these days. Now we are a small, family-owned Bed& Breakfast. With your stay at our B&B comes a small breakfast with regional products, a unique room with a small balcony with a nice view over Salzburg, four hectares of woods and meadows, a huge library and a nice bar that is open from 9pm till 1 o'clock in the morning with free drinks. The only requirement is that every guest brings a book and a bottle of her favorite drink (alcoholic or nonalcoholic). The book can be exchanged at our library (bring one, take one) and the bottle will be put at the bar (bring one, drink one). Enjoy sunrises and -sets, go for a hike or visit the city during the day. ... more   less
