Fodor's Expert Review Hotel Amadeus

Linzergasse 43, Salzburg, Salzburg, A-5020, Austria

Renovated in 2017, the guest rooms in this 500-year-old house are individually decorated, featuring wooden floors and antique armoires among understated modern accents. Downstairs, greet the day in one of the cutest breakfast nooks in Salzburg. The hotel site was once home to one of Salzburg's communal baths. Back in Wolfgang's time houses didn't have running water, so travelers—especially those arriving through the nearby Linz Gate—would head straight here after their long, dusty trip. Today travelers still make a beeline here. If you're wondering why the hotel has Mozart's middle name, this 500-year-old house is not far from the St. Sebastian church and cemetery where many members of his family are booked in for an eternal stay.
