When we arrived, we expected a one bed flat as advertised on the homeaway site. Instead, we found a studio. When we explained this to Christine, she immediately tried to help us find another accommodation. After discussing our options, we decided to stay for our full two week holiday. The noise was also a problem, but because Christine wasn't able to meet us our first night, we hadn't been shown the double set of windows. Once this problem was solved, we settled in for a wonderful visit to Salzburg. The flat is a short walk to almost everywhere we wanted to go. The Billa market is only 3-4 minutes away and has most things we needed. Christine went out of her way to help us with so many things. She also advised us about upcoming events, gave us a useful bus guide, prinited off our tour tickets and boarding passes, brought a special pan we needed for our cooking, answered all our questions, and even called our taxi when it was time to leave. The studio is simply furnished and has a basic kitchen, but we were able to cook almost all our meals there. If you are planning a short stay, I think it would work for a family of 4, but there are only 2 chairs at the table. It would be a very close space for 4 adults. The wifi connection is excellent; the flat stays a comfortable temperature without turning on the heat; there is ample storage space; there is an iron, clothes washer, and telly which mainly carried news programs in English. The best recommendation we can give is that we're hoping to return next year. We loved Salzburg and found this flat a perfect place to stay. Bravo, Christine!👏😊👏

You can catch a bus into town or walk, which we did takes about 40 minutes. Lovely area, safe and wonderful views, I would recommend this for a couple.
