Inspired by Salzburg’s rich musical heritage, Goldgasse Hotel has opened in the city’s fesitival district, where small arts and crafts shops intermingle with cafés and bakeries. Situated in a 700-year-old building, the newly refurbished 16-room hotel and restaurant brings a warm, cosy residence with contemporary touches.
Goldgasse Hotel is within walking distance from gardens, fesitval halls, Salzburg Catherdral, the Hohensalzburg Fortress and Mozart’s birthplace.
The conceirge’s warm welcome replaces the traditional hotel lobby and provides guests with a definite point of contact for every request and need, from organising a private visit to a museum or in-room breakfast.
The 13th century building, used by coppersmiths from 1573 and later converted into a hotel, has been honoured and restored, with many historical features now uncovered and left intact, including frescoes, original timber, stucco and old stone floors. Traditional materials such as Salzburg oak, porcelain tiles and glass have been complemented with vibrant colours to create a comfortable and timeless place to relax in.
Named after a different Opera, each of the spacious 16 guestrooms and suites have oversized wardrobes and walls used as a canvas to depict some of the most representative Operas of the Salzburg festival, each offering a contemporary interpretation of a tenor’s home.
Marble bathrooms complete with rain and massage showers, a SMEG fridge with complimentary snacks and drinks, organic, handmade bathroom amenities by local brand Maria Pieper, an espresso machine and organic tea selection, free wireless internet and a flat screen TV loaded with movies feature in all guestrooms.
The innate rustic charm of the building and warmth of Alpine style is celebrated by the hotel’s Gasthof Goldgasse restaurant, with hefty timber beams, newly upholstered wooden furniture and copper detailing.
Host to musical events, such as the Salzburg Festival and this year’s 50th anniversary of The Sound Of Music, Salzburg offers a range of cultural experiences for all ages, proving to be a luxury destination for any time of the year.
