The hotel is the actual family Von trapp villa. We did not know this until we walked inside. The villa is about a 10-15 minute cab ride to downtown or to an attraction like the castle. Walking would take awhile. We had a car but left it at the villa because parking is difficult downtown Salzburg.
The outside of the home is very impressive. It is surrounded by a huge white wall. The home is huge and the lawn is very well manicured. Inside the house is a ton of old Von trapp treasures to include their original benches.
We stayed in the daughter Maria's room. It was a typical 'room' with a high ceiling. The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was a little small but not uncomfortable. You have to take into account this a joke from 1920. Although the place was modernized it is still old so rooms aren't huge. The owner was the receptionist and very helpful. Every am they called us a cab. The place was so amazing and a must for any sound of music fan.
Pros: The historical aspect of the home. Comfortable bed
Cons: Very loud creaky floors in the upstairs. We worried we would wake everyone when we returned at night.
Location: The villa is in a very affluent neighborhood about 10-15 minutes of downtown Salzburg. Easy can ride in costing about 12 euro
