Housed in a 14th-century building on one of the Altstadt’s most appealing little streets, the three-star Hotel Goldene Ente is a lush, colorful splurge. The 18 rooms are at once regal, cushy, and modern, and the hotel's surroundings are exhaustingly charming.
The Ente's hallways and lobby still have the original warped-stone floors and staircases. The rooms are likewise atmospheric, with oil paintings, antique furnishings and seductive white beds.
Some of the more colorful rooms feature rich red cabinets and bedposts offset by mint-green walls. The bathrooms have giant tubs or showers with stone-tiled floors; a few even have stone sinks and wood-beamed ceilings. All rooms are equipped with a TV, safe and telephone.
The rooms in front overlook winding Goldgasse's wrought-iron signs and gently curving building façades, although the views from the back rooms aren't quite so picturesque.
The Ente serves a complimentary buffet breakfast in the hotel and traditional fare at Restaurant Goldene Ente on the ground floor. According to the hotel literature, the restaurant's Salzburger Nockerl—a super-eggy, sugary souffle—was deemed "the very best" by Salzburg-based writer Stefan Zweig. While we can't substantiate this claim, we're willing to trust Zweig's superior opinion.

About the Goldene Ente neighborhood
The Altstadt is Salzburg's central hub. Its medieval layout is crowded with well-preserved baroque architecture, church spires, and 14th-century townhouses. Although the tourists pushing through winding, narrow streets can be a headache, expansive town squares give the throngs room to disperse. Mozart's Geburtshaus, countless churches, and a cluster of museums are a few of the bigger attractions.
