We stayed here for two nights. Great location across the river from the shops on Salzburg. Salzburg is VERY walkable....so don't worry that it is across the river from the main shopping and dining area. Next to the beautiful park where "Sound of music" was filmed. Clean, comfortable, and the staff spoke English well. Rooms are large for a older European Hotel. I think this was once a very nice hotel...it has a very old elevator (slow, but adds to the ambiance of the facility), but take the stairs at least once...great staircase too. Sitting area in the bar is wonderful for a drink after a walk around the city.
