I stayed here for two nights and thoroughly enjoyed the outstanding location. You can walk to all of the tourist sights in Salzburg from here, most are just steps from the front door. The hotel is on a cute street in the pedestrian only area of old town. My room was on the second floor and had a nice sitting area and comfortable bed. I slept well and the breakfast was great.
The people at the reception were helpful but they could have been a bit more welcoming - I felt as though I was bothering them every time I asked a question.
The taxis can drive right up to the hotel, at least in the off season, even though it is in the pedestrian area.
