The 2 room apartment is one of 3 holiday apartments which are all in the same house in a quiet neighbourhood at Ganshofstrasse 18, Maxglan, at most 15 walking minutes from the historical center.Each apartment has its own private parking place. On the ground floor there is a washing room belonging to all 3 apartments with a washing machine and tumble drier (no extra charge). In the little garden in the back, there is a hut for bicycles in case you want to rent a bike .
There are many restaurants 3 to 8 walking minutes , a bakery 4 walking minutes and a supermarket 7-8 minutes away.
3-4 walking minutes away, bus number 27 will take you to the center , to the airport and to the train (email hidden)so about 5 walking minutes away bus number 2 to the airport.
From the apartments you can reach most of Salzburgs attractions by walking. The fortress, museums, the Festspielhaus where most concerts and operas of the Salzburg festivals take place, Miirabellgarden , etc. In the winter there is a special ski bus taking guests to the nearby ski resorts. If you stay 3 days orr longer I recommend to get a Salzburg card for 3 days which includes the cable car up the Untersberg, free entrance to all museums and sightseeing places and all city busses. It does not cost so much more than the Salzburg card for one day.

All 3 apartments have in common a washing room downstairs with a washing machine and a tumble dryer. No extra charge.
Guests can also use the little garden in the back and the bycicle hut- in case they rent a bike.
Interaction with Guests
As I live 90 kilometers from Salzburg I am not always able to wait for my guests and meet them, so I send them instructions how to access the key and informations about their apartment. I have a nice neighbour on the ground floor, Mariana, who takes care of my apartments and my guests when I am not there.
What I love about my neighbourhood is that it is a very pleasant neighbourhood, there are mainly small houses, it is quiet and nevertheless close to the historical center. It is a pleasant 15 minutes walk if you walk slowly. There are many restaurants close by, from 3-4 to 10 walking minutes distance. There are busses close by but you don`t hear them, it is close to the airport but you don`t hear the planes, it is just a few minutes by taxi to the train station, a perfect location.
If you walk 3-4 minutes you reach the bus station for bus 27 which goes to the center, train station and airport.
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.
Wir waren zu zweit mit unserem Baby zu Gast in Ruths Apartment. Die Buchung und die Kommunikation vor unserer Anreise haben problemlos und schnell geklappt, und das, obwohl Ruth in Südamerika verweilte. Die praktisch eingerichtete Wohnung liegt in angenehmer Nachbarschaft, das hat uns sehr gut gefallen. Auch der Parkplatz ist in Salzburg Gold wert! Die Stadt ist zu Fuß in etwa 15 Minuten zu erreichen. Vielen Dank!
We really enjoyed staying in Ruth's apartment! It was convieniently located within walking distance to the city center. Ruth even arranged for a crib to be left in the apartment for our youngest child to sleep in. We would highly recommend this apartment to other people and are considering another trip ourselves.
We really enjoyed our stay in Ruth's apartment. Even though we never actually met Ruth, she was always very helpful and responded immediately to any email we sent. The apartment was perfect for 2 people and had everything we needed. We found it very easy to walk to the center - a little over 15 minutes and a very pleasant walk. We did it twice a day most days without a problem. We liked the fact we were out of the center and in a quiet residential area. There was a supermarket, 2 restaurants and a bakery nearby. We didn't have a car and Ruth was kind enough to order us a taxi the day before we left to make sure we arrived at the station in time for an early train. We recommend this apartment and would stay again.
logement très tranquille, un peu excentré par rapport à la ville et loin du centre historique, il faut savoir qu'il est très difficile de se garer et les parkings sont chers. Pour la description, ce n'est pas réellement un trois pièces car le coin cuisine ainsi que l'espace pour manger sont très restreints, heureusement que nous n'étions que 3. Le mobilier quant à lui est plutôt rustique avec une table un peu bancale.
Pour le confort en général et la situation géographique, rapport qualité prix plus que médiocre, prix trop excessif pour la qualité de prestations.
We enjoyed staying in Ruth's lovely 2 room apartment. It had all we wanted and the city center was close by. It had all the amenities stated and overall was a great place to stay. The only downside was not meeting Ruth! Maybe next time.
This apartment is lovely. Only a short walk to the train station as well as a spar (supermarket). Beds were comfortable and 4 people fit really well. We didn't get to meet Ruth but she was very thorough with her instructions and was extremely helpful. We enjoyed our time in Salzburg very much and would definately stay again.
Cosy and convenient accommodation with a fully equipped kitchen, lounge and dining areas and vehicle parking on site. Comfortable bedding and appropriate and generous doonas and linen. Comprehension information and timely responses were provided by Ruth making our stay in Salzburg a happy one. Many thanks, 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.
