“Our stay at Salzburg”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2011

Convenient location and wifi in lobby area. Near to Hauptbahnhof (main train station). Walking distance to old city (aldstadt). Nice, clean room and breakfast included in room price. Hotel staff were polite and friendly, and can arrange tours for guests. Good value stay.

I chose this hotel because I wanted to be near the main train station, and near it certainly is: a 5 minute walk from Salzburg hbf. The area is a little run down, and about 20 minutes walk into the touristy part of the city, or you can catch one of the many buses.

The elderly Chinese couple were friendly, and will take money from you when you arrive. The hotel itself is a little old fashioned, and there is no lift. Rooms are clean and functional, as the complimentary continental breakfast satisfactory. There is free wi-fi provided, and a small bar area where you can have a drink (limited selection) and have a chat.

All in all, a good family run 2 star hotel, convenient location for links, and very good value compared to everything else in Salzburg.

The Pension owned by a Chinese couple in their 50s.They are very friendly and helpful.There is no elevator in the building. Reception Counter and Breakfast area at Ground Floor. 1st floor and 2nd floor has WC and Shower in individual room. If you stay at 3rd floor, WC and Shower room along the hallway, outside your room.But don't worry, they are clean.Room is clean and tidy.Their make-up room service is excellent. Bath & Face towel change everyday.Breakfast is simple and delicious.I will definitely stay at Pension Jahn if i visit salzburg again.

It is a very short walk from the station.
One of the roads outside the hotel is the main road for all traffic into the city and the other is a main bus route, so is very noisy.
They will ask for you credit card details to book, however they don't take cards only cash as payment.

Thanks to tripadvisor we perfectly knew what to expect - owners are a friendly chinese family - their english was more than terrible but at least they were all the time smiling. As this was for us a backpacker trip, mother of chinese family filled our vacuum bottles every morning with hot water so we had a nice good cuppa tea almost whole day.

WHAT TO EXPECT - simple but good breakfasts, locality near to the city centre - 15 min. by feet to the VERY centre! (close to some turkish or arab community, but we really had no problems with them. We even went to some of their Internet services and during our stay there, immigrant police went in to check that everyone has a right to stay there - nice experience :-D) Under average rooms without a mini-bar (we had some food behind the window) but bathroom in the room. Most important thing was that room was clean and we didn´t have any problems as the family provided us with a key from a hotel. You will get a nice value for your money so if you are looking to save some money but want to stay near to the centre - this is the right choice

This pension has a very good location, only 5 minutes walk from the main train station and bus station with supermarket and cafes nearby.
The room is very clean, spacious, beds are comfortable and the shower is strong with sufficient hot water.
The breakfast is adequate with plenty of spreads to choose from.
Wifi reception is strongest in the reception area.
The owners are very kind, welcoming and helpful, they clean the room and bathroom every day.

I chose Pension Jahn because it was cheap. I was travelling solo and its not cost effective to stay in pensions that cost 100 Euro and above unless the value proved me otherwise. Pension Jahn's rates are like 50 Euros per night with complimentary breakfast. Comes with bathrooms as well. There is no television so TV freaks watch out. I strongly discourage solo travellers to not stay in those rooms without bathrooms as the experience is not very pleasant. The common bathrooms are old. Location of the pension is alittle away from the bridge which means its not within the tourist area but accessible by 5- 10 min bus ride. Overall I will stay here if I am on budget. But if you have 100 Euros to spend per night, stay near the bridge. Its more happening over there. Salzburg is beautiful.
