Reviewed October 9, 2013

We stay in this pension for 1 night on 9/20, the location is good, only 5 mins walk to main train station and the bus & tram terminal. The breakfast is quite good, the lady at the reception is very very helpful, provide a lot of information and advice. Although the interior decoration of the room is a bit old and simple, but I think the price is reasonable. Would recommend this pension to friends who will visit Salzburg.

Stayed here with a group of friends for a few nights whilst visiting Salzburg. The room was very basic with a parquet floor but all clean and tidy. The beds were enough to ensure a nights sleep. As others have mentioned its close to the train station and a quick 15 minute walk to the old town. The street outside is fairly noisy with traffic though. Breakfast was basic but more than sufficient. Owners were pleasant and friendly.
Would we stay again? If on a budget, yes

We stayed for two nights in a room with a shared bathroom. The train station is only a couple blocks away. The location is a little shady, but not unsafe. Also, the road next to the hotel is heavily traveled by busses so you won't be able to sleep in. It's a 15 min walk to Mirabell Gardens and 20 minutes to Old Town, but you don't have to walk far with your luggage. Breakfast includes yogurt, granola, eggs, rolls, bread, cold cuts, and cheese. The owners are very friendly and helpful. It's very reasonable, but I would just caution light sleepers about the road traffic.

This hotel is within walking distance (a couple of blocks) of the train station and makes a great base for visiting Salzburg. Ylian, the lady in charge of the front desk and breakfast, was super helpful in acquainting my girlfriend and me with how to navigate Salzburg. We only had two days and she showed us how to get the most out of them.
The rooms are a bit noisy, but it didn't bother me that much and if one wants to shut the window it stops the noise completely. We were advised to ask for a room away from the street side which we did.
No elevator to get your luggage upstairs.
The rooms are a good size and the price is a great value.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the street side.

Pension Jahn is basic but good value in an expensive city. Owners are multi-lingual and helpful. We had an ensuited room which was basic but clean. The breakfast buffet was good value. The Pension is very near the train station, so it's good for transport. The immediate surrounds aren't the nicest - but that's often the case when staying near the major transport depot (having said that there are some good restaurants very close by which the owners were happy to point out). The walk to the river and old city takes about 15 minutes. Pension Jahn is a good value, budget hotel. No frills but clean and a good location.

Nearby train station and bus station. But surprisingly quiet. Budget place to stay and so don't expect much. Very basic room. Not stylish at all.
The host is polite but not the sort of "friendly" expected.

Had been to the hotel after reading the reviews!! Well I have given 4/5 stars only for the fact that it is not as good as I expected but it met all my needs :)..... A 100m walk to the bus n train station....very very friendly staff....lovely people....many restaurants close by...you hv McD too... There are many hotels with big names but this is a compact hotel....

If you are spending just the night to stay at the hotel without looking for any real (spa,sauna,massage etc ;) ) services then this the right hotel. I observed that there was no lift, no refrigerator or a mini bar....but these are not mandatory for everyone....

But as I told you this a true "VALUE FOR MONEY" hotel....

Cheers
