Markus Sittikus

Short hotel break in austria
 

The 4 star Markus Sittikus is a beautifully presented hotel, based in an 18C building with a mustard façade located in a quiet side street not far from the Mirabell palace, just a 15 minute walk from the old city.
Inside the hotel the décor is attractive and individual, with bold colours like mustard yellow and red tartan in the comfortable bar area, and some colourful murals painted on the walls throughout the building. Public rooms have period furniture, and the upbeat interior; combined with the personal attention you receive from the friendly staff, make a stay here particularly memorable.
The hotel has 39 rooms though it feels smaller, with television (CNN/BBC), direct dial phones and hairdryers. Each one is individually decorated with attractive colour combinations and solid wooden furniture, in keeping with the age and status of the building.
It is also one of the few hotels in Salzburg to have a garden to relax in, if you are looking for some respite after doing the sights.
