The hotel is outside the centre of Salzburg. It is easy enough to walk to the buss top and take the 15 minute journey into town but it is a nuisance after having walked all round Salzburg. It also adds about 5 euros per person for the journey. The hotel has a interesting history and is decorated in period style. The rooms were a good size and as well as the sleeping area had a little table to sit at. Everywhere was very clean. However the room was very warm and when we opened the window it meant that we were able to hear the next door rooms occupants especially as their balcony was literally inches away from our window. I am not sure it would be a problem in the Winter but in the Summer the room felt stuffy. The wireless Internet advertised is only available in very specific places in the hotel and not at all in the room. The staff know this and feel that this should be made clear. We had hoped to plan our travel when our date was asleep n the room and this was not possible. We had a few general queries and felt underwhelmed by the help given, which was perfunctory rather than friendly. The indoor pool was well received by my daughter but the outdoor pool is very small and unheated.
Overall I would not stay again. There are no huge negatives just a feeling that for the price you could do better and be in the centre of a very beautiful Salzburg.
