There's nothing likeable about this hotel. It's a bland concrete early 90s corporate hotel that needs a total refurbishment.
From the plastic curtains (which have shrunk, so don't give a black out) to the purple plastic and cold fluorescent lights in the rooms, it's utterly charmless in every way.
Nor is it anywhere near approaching 4 star. The bed linen is scratchy and cheap, as are the thin flimsy towels. You'd expect this in an Ibis two star (in fact I bet they are from the same supplier). Breakfast is cheap, basic and limited in its assortment for a hotel of this price. The location is on a modern grey street, 30 minutes walk from the old city, surrounded by more grey low rise buildings. There's nothing around of any interest.
The only positive points are the very powerful air conditioning in each room, the free fast wifi, and the cleanliness which cannot be faulted.
If you're coming here privately for some of the romantic charm that Salzburg has to offer, there are dozens of better places to stay. I would really avoid this hotel in future, just because you really don't need to inflict this boring, soulless place on yourself.
Pluses: a/c, wifi, clean
Minuses: bland, boring, soulless, dull, bit cheap and nasty
