If you're looking for a standardised, chain hotel experience then the Lasserhof is going to disappoint you. If you're looking for value for money in a reasonable location and are prepared for quirkiness then give it a go.
The hotel is conveniently located for the main rail station. It's not far from the Mirabell Gardens but the wrong end of town for many of the old town sites. This isn't to say it's too far but some people will want to use public transport.
The building is old, leading to some peculiar room layouts. Ours, under the roof, had a sort of lobby area from which one door led into a very narrow but well decorated bathroom and the other into a reasonably sized room. Being in the attic the windows were not very large. The bed was comfortable and everything clean. Someone else in our party had a single room with shower which, although small, was absolutely fine.
The owners have been gradually refurbishing the hotel over recent years, installing a new lift, free wifi that seemed to work throughout the hotel, free internet access via two PCs on the ground floor, new bathrooms and flooring. There is also air-conditioning although we didn't use it. The workmanship in some places looks a bit DIY but is completely acceptable.
The breakfast buffet was much better than we expected, ranging from cereals through breads, cheeses and cold meat to boiled eggs, scrambled eggs and bacon. Coffee was served in flasks on the tables.
We found the service friendly and efficient throughout our stay.
I would definitely stay here again on a future visit to Salzburg.
