The Guesthouse

Your oasis in Salzburg´s city centre

Our arte vida boutique guesthouse is situated in a historic old-town house on the right-side of the old city, and was designed for the cosmopolitan traveller, global nomad and the individual looking for a relaxed, unique and comfortable atmosphere rather than traditional prestige and luxury.

The Rooms

Our rooms are individually and uniquely interpreted with elements and ideas of the Mediterranean and Asia – and all of this in Salzburg´s city centre. Held in warm colours and furnished with wooden floors, our rooms usher you into an ambience of exotic style combined with cosiness. No matter whether you are travelling alone, the two or even the five of you – you will surely find the right room or apartment for your needs.

The Lounge & Kitchen

Be independant, free & easy!

In our guesthouse you are free and independant. Help yourself anytime to coffee, tea, muesli and fruits at our donation-based self-service bar. Or cook yourself a lovely meal in our modern, fully-equipped kitchen. The lounge & kitchen is the place for hospitality and exchange, as well as retreat and communication.

Shining with new luster


Just like every year we made the most of our “break” and we were again drilling, hammering, painting and shrubbing away! And this year we were in a particular decorating mood. Early as February and beginning of March we got the house shipshape: we sanded all wooden floors, installed new reading lamps next to the beds, room Mumbai and Alhambra are now radiating with shiny ceiling lamps. Take a look at the new photos below to get an impression of our fresh redo.
