Located in a charming old-town alley of Salzburg, Austria away from the bustling parts of the city and within walking distance of Festspielhaus concert hall, Hotel Goldgasse is a four-star boutique hotel that makes guests feel right at home.

The hotel managed by Amadeus Hotels occupies a 700-year-old stone house that was once a 16th century coppersmith’s workshop. As a reminder of the building’s past, Kupferpfandl’n (copper pans) are put on display in the hotel’s restaurant called Gasthof Goldgasse located on the ground floor.

It’s worth mentioning that the restaurant offers classic local dishes along with daily specials in a homey, traditional setting.

The hotel’s lobby occupies the ground floor and the floor above it, with the reception area exuding modern and chic vibes. Bright yellow chairs welcome the guests in the lobby area alongside a gallery wall, tiled floors and quirky furnishings such as a copper egg chair seated in the corner right beside a standing lamp and a classic black leather suitcase bearing the Small Luxury Hotels of the World logo on it. As a matter of fact, Hotel Goldgasse is the only hotel in Salzburg that is part of the Small Luxury Hotels in the World.

Inside the hotel you’ll also find fresco paintings on the ceilings, steep stone stairs and large-scale prints depicting scenes of the Salzburg Festival. There are 16 rooms available here; they are all named after operas and musicians, each featuring different interiors that are inspired by art performances.

The rooms are divided into four categories: double room for single occupancy, standard double room, junior suite and rooftop suite. Rooms located on the top floor certainly offer the best views; the Jedderman suite has a private terrace with a breathtaking view of the Hohensalzburg fortress while the Il Trovatore room has a shared terrace.
