We took the train from Vienna and arrived in Salzburg Hbf (central train station). At the station tourist office we were told to catch bus NO. 3,5 or 6 from stand B/C; get off after the bridge and walked to the hotel. We also picked up a copy of the city map...We got off at the stop after the bridge and walked under the big archway into the old town and came across the Austria Bank and used the landmark, White town hall clock tower (near the archway) facing the narrow street of the hotel, to locate the hotel. Hotel was about five min walk from Mozart Museum above the Spar supermarket. There were loads of lovely shops and stores for shopping!
The staff was friendly and easy going. The hotel provided free wifi but they needed your passport for registration etc. We had a lovely twin room at the 3rd flr above the street with windows at both sides which was lovely. The room had air con. so we could close the windows too.
Within Walking distance to all the tourist attractions!
