This hotel couldn't be located better...right in the heart of the old town it is close to Mozarts birthplace, the fortress and everything you can think of. The hotel is also 2 minute walk to M32 by elevator for a dinner with view of salzburg city (highly recommended).
We stayed in the cityflat which is a very spacious suite, however I am undecided whether I like it or not...the interiors are slightly awkward, there are beautiful old features for doors and windows but the new elements and the artwork doesn't fit together well. It didn't feel very welcoming but it stays true to an art hotel.
The suite wasn't very functional. There is a couch in a separate room but it faces the luggage racks and wardrobe rather than a tv. It made this area useless. The bathroom has a shower head in bathtub, but it is tucked away in a corner and for a comfortable shower it means the bathroom floor gets quite wet. There are also quite a few steps between rooms within the suite, and to get to the suite from the elevator. Assistance with luggage is definitely required.
There is also noise from footsteps and furniture movements from the floor above and the streets.
I think the parts I didn't like about the hotel is more down to personal taste. The location and the price point for this type of quality is excellent.
