I think there were two side-by-side hotels bought by the Imlauers, turned into Best Westerns, each had a lobby with a different feel, but the reception desk opened to both sides. One side modern, the other traditional. A little weird at first, just don't get confused, you can enter either side and use lobby facilities on either side (luggage room, computer, breakfast room).
We stayed on the modern side. The room was comfortable enough ('American-ish') and had a nice big windows and a view toward the mountain and some more traditional buildings. It isn't advisable to sleep with the windows open, because it's right in the back yard of the station tracks where the trains come and go, but with the windows closed, it's fine.
Breakfast was in a charming courtyard with every imaginable breakfast food. You want to linger.
Location right down the street from Mirabell Gardens where every bus seems to make a stop, so very convenient. Staff was very helpful many times, but didn't seem to know about the summer toboggan track nearby, a highlight of our trip once we found it, but that's for another review.
Weak wifi, handy computer in the lobby though.
