On our recent trip to Salzburg, my boyfriend and I chose this hotel because it was conveniently located within walking distance to the train station (we were only staying in Salzburg for 2 days). The Alderhof is definitely within 5-10min walk from the station, which was nice. However, the surrounding location wasn't very appealing. Similar to previous reviews, the area seemed run down and dirty. It is about a 15min walk to Mirabell Gardens and another 5min to Old Town. The hotel itself was OK - comfortable rooms. They were a little odd, with the toilet in one room and the shower/sink in another. In the end, it suited our needs fine.
