Schwarzstraße 5-7, Salzburg, Österreich
Hotel star rating:
Rising directly above the River Salzach's right bank, after dark the Hotel Sacher seems a bright jewel with its lights reflecting on the water. Stately, with late 19th Century splendor, the Sacher has seen many heads of state and world-renowned performers during Festival times. The hotel is lavishly decorated in the grand tradition with antique furnishings, opulent carpets and original paintings. Most rooms are spacious and generously appointed. Riverside rooms offer impressive views of the Altstadt and Festung. In warm weather, its riverside Sacher Café is a great spot for people watching. The hotel is within a few minutes' walk of the Landestheater and many shops as well as the Altstadt's attractions.
