When you have found the hotel, which is super easy with the directions on the website, you can see a great glass facade. The hotel is visible from the outside and looks very new. If you go in then it comes right to the front desk where I was greeted very nicely. I'm actually not so often traveled alone, but I was all explained by the super friendly staff. From inside you can see that the hotel is quite new to be there really, everything is very modern with dark wood and a whole bunch of colors. Then we went up the elevator to the room.

Hotel ExteriorOutside the hotel looks fabulous! The building was built in 1861. The base color is pink (and no, this is no exaggeration, this is common in Salzburg) and the frames are painted white.

I think it has a nice impression outside maken.Er are 198 rooms and suites.LocationCrowne Plaza is located in the center of Salzburg near the Mirabell Gardens and the Congress.
