“reasonable”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

It was a moderate price for the city.,near the central station[adequated if arrive by train},within walking distance to the best sightseeings,clean but very,very noisy,located at the corner of two agitaded roads,both with the traffic lights in front of the pension and even the windows closed,also a big problem in hot days. No lift.Impossible to sleep well,only if you take a sedative.

Room Tip: NO tips,all of them are noisy

A very nice small hotel near the train station. Clean and friendly host. Our room was on a busy road facing a casino. A little too noisy for my wife but it was a good hotel for the price. The bus for the tours can pick you up at the door.

This pension is only a short walk to the station.
The management is very friendly and helpful. They booked a number of events for us and also sold us the "Salzburg Cards". Do not stay in Salzburg witout them... Gives you entrance to many places of interest and public transport for a very reasonable cost.

The pension is a few minutes' walk from the train station, about 15 minutes to Mirabell Gardens, and 30 minutes to Old Town. There are plenty of shops, restaurants, banks, and the supermarket in the train station nearby. The room was relatively quiet, especially with the fan on, and comfortable. Towels, soap, and shampoo packets are provided. The towels were replaced and beds made daily. The breakfast was pretty ample.

The owners are very helpful and friendly. They are a pair of Chinese couples with good knowledge of the things around.

The location is perfect, five minutes walking to train station. The room is basic but very clean. There is fan for better ventilation too. The breakfast is quite basic but enough. Wifi is very strong and fast. For those who need to travel by train next day, this is a good choice.

Sometimes the street can have heavy traffic noises. You can close the window and turn on the fan.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

This hotel was easy to find with GPS, and was only a few minutes away from the central bus station. For the price you pay, its got everything you need - a comfortable bed (standard european: two singles joined together), a reasonable shower and limited street noise. You'll have to carry your bags up the stairs as theres no lift. The Lin family were very friendly and helpful, giving it a personalised feel. The general area of the hotel doesnt seem fantastic, but with free parking and super-fast wifi, it was decent for one night. If you're watching your pennies, this is definitely the hotel for you! If you're expecting red carpet and gold-gilt highlights, this will be less to your taste - the decor is very simple and obviously done on a budget.

We stayed in June 2012 and liked Pension Jahn very much. The Lin family were very friendly, yet not intrusive. Our room was very large with big windows and a decent-sized private bathroom. It was very clean and pleasant. Breakfast was served in a nice room and was quite good.

The only drawback was the Pension's location. Although very convenient for the main station, it is a good half hour walk from the Aldstadt, which is fine but not the best if you're out all day and fancy a mid-afternoon nap before going back into town. That being said, we didn't really investigate bus options and taxis were inexpensive.

Also, it was on a slightly noisy road in terms of traffic - not too bad but a little much to have the windows open at night.
I would recommend and stay again, just with these last thoughst in mind too.

Room Tip: We stayed on the first floor in room 5A which was very large and pleasant. Facing the road at the fr...
