Absolutely beautiful hotel, and a dream come true for Sound of Music fans like me. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. Rooms were clean. The only downside of this hotel is that it's not very close to any bus stops or public transportation. However, the staff is able to get you a cab at any time that gets to...

Dear Cara M Thank you very much for staying with us and for your review. Indeed, the nearest bus stop is about 12 minutes by foot but taxis are usually available within 5 minutes. Nevertheless, I was glad to read that you enjoyed your overall stay with us very much. Kind regards Daniel Szelényi General Manager Hotel Schloss Leopoldskron

First, the bad part. It rained a fair amount. And we had to leave. This was a very special hotel for my family and me. My wife and daughter love The Sound of Music, so this was extra special for them. The hotel grounds are amazing - very serene and well-manicured. The rooms were very ample and clean. The front...

My adult daughter and I just spent two days at the Schloss. We wanted to stay in the main building but it was sold out. We reluctantly stayed in the annex next door, but as it turns out, that is the way to go. The main house is about double the price, and honestly not worth it. When you stay...
