It's a fine hotel, but one must be aware that it is located in the pedestrain zone in Salzburg. If you want to get to it with your car, you must first have a code from the hotel in order to lower the bollards that block traffic from the pedestrian zone. Better get the necessary information from the hotel before arriving in this area or it can be quite a challenge. Parking is in the nearby (5 - 10 minute walk) municipal parking. To simplify things, I would recommend parking first, then walking to the hotel to avoid driving through crowds of shoppers. Once settled, we loved being close to all of the sights and restaurants and enjoyed everything the hotel had to offer.
