Interaction with Guests
As I don`t live in Salzburg I am not always able to wait for my guests at the apartment or meet them. Therefore I send them detailed instructions how to access the keys and informations about the apartment. My neighbour on the ground floor left door, Mariana, who speaks perfect English, takes care of my guests and my apartments when I am not there.
A nice quiet neighbourhood, yet close to the historical center. Many restaurants in walking distance , a bakery 4 minutes, supermarkets 8-10 minutes and bus stations 3-5 walking minutes away. You walk at most 15 minutes to the historical center and the Festspielhaus (concert hall)
Bus 27 from the train station, to the center, train station and airport. Bus number 2 from the airport, get off at Hans Schmidt Platz, walk back until Glansteg, turn left, cross the little bridge, first street right is Ganshofstrasse.
Other Things to Note
If there are no guests leaving the day you arrive you can check in any time, otherwise the apartment will be ready around 13 o`clock but if you arrive earlier you can bring your luggage after 10 and go for a walk until the apartment is ready.
On the day you leave I need the apartment at 10 o`clock for final cleaning if there are guests coming that day, otherwise at 12.
Please make no noise after 22 o`clock.
Please don`t walk with your street shoes inside the apartment, there are slippers in all sizes waiting for you.
If you are traveling with a dog (at most one) you can bring him if you can guarantee that he will make no damage and that you won`t leave him alone in the apartment.
Dr. Ruth had provided excellent instructions on how to find and enter the home but she actually ended up greeting us in person and showing us everything we needed to know. The neighborhood was quiet and conveniently located. The house was clean and had everything we needed.
We have stay at the Ruth´s apartment very confortable.
All the informations from Ruth were very succesful.
We recomend the apartment,it´s just a few stops by bus to the center and the bus stop is very closed to the apartment.
Just to say the bed was a little beat soft(old)
Thank you Ruth
I am very sorry about the mattresses. I did not realize they had become less comfortable since nobody complained before you did and I hadn't slept there for a long time. Next time I was in the apartment I tried them out and saw you were right. I exchanged them right away for new ones. I am very sorry for the inconvenience.
Best regards, Ruth
Ruth's apartment is large and spacious place that comfortably accommodated our party of four adults. Each room had a comfortable bed and the bathroom was large with a lovely shower. The location is a quiet area that was an easy 20 minute walk to the old city and attractions. I found Ruth to be exceptionally flexible and very understanding of a last-minute request. If you are looking for a large place for a family or group of adults travelling together, then look no further.
We didn't meet Ruth, but she explained everything we had to know. The place was very comfortable and clean and it was really close to the old city center. We had a little problem with wifi but we solved it quickly.
We really enjoyed staying in apartment!
Everything as explained. And it was explained very well.
I loved the apartment, felt like home, in a very quiet neighbourhood.
This was my first AirBnB ever. The apartment was beautiful, and close to the bus stop to get into Old Salzburg. Ruth sent me instructions on how to get into the building and the apartment but I didn't realize they were on a different e-mail account. When a neighbor let me use their phone she was extremely helpful. Would definitely stay there again!
Wir waren zu dritt und mit Hund im schönen Salzburg.
In Ruths Wohnung haben wir uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Die Wohnung entspricht der Beschreibung, ist sauber und hat eine gute Lage. Ganz in der Nähe befinden sich ein uriges Wirtshaus sowie eine gemütliche Weinstube mit einem herrlichen Garten.
Vielen Dank, liebe Ruth, wir kommen gern wieder!

About the Host, Ruth
Hi, I'm Ruth
I have been living in the beautiful Pinzgauer Alps since 1973 , in a little village called Gries, 90 kilometers south of Salzburg. Before I lived in Viena-Austria, Sao Paulo- Brasil ,Chicago- USA and Tel Aviv-Israel..
I have a wonderful 26 year old son who studies Philosophy in Vienna.
My hobbies: I adore travelling, photography, gardening, reading, classical music and meeting interesting people . My favorite travel destinations are the far East (so far I have been in China-Yunnan province, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Thailand, Singapure, Indonesia (Bali), Malaysia), Sri Lanka, Maledive Islands, South America (so far only Brasil and Venezuela but I plan to visit Peru, Bolivia and Chile this year). I have also been to Central America (so far Mexico, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic), Africa (Kenia, Egypt, Marocco, Tunisia), USA, and Europe (Norway, Holland, Belgium, Portugal, Spain, Italy, France, Switzerland, Poland, CSSR, Germany, Hungary, Croatia, Greece etc.)
I am new on Airbnb and I love this site. I find it so nice, that every host adds a picture and description of himself, and also that every potential guest adds a photo and tells something about himself. It makes it so familiar. It is so different from all other booking sites. It will be the first place where I look for a room or apartment when I travel next.
I have been renting holiday apartments in Salzburg for about 8 years and truly enjoy the contact with my guests, although unfortunately I am not always able to meet them personally. In case I can't, I send them instructions how to access the keys and informations about the apartments, and if I am travelling, there is a neighbour who speaks perfect English and who takes care of my apartments and my guests while I am not there.
