Salzburg Hotel Location

I have been looking at "budget" (75-90 Euro range)hotel locations, preferably with a free or inexpensive car park, as close in walking distance to the Old Town as possible. It appears my options are either near the train station (Pension Adlerhof, Hotel Drei Kreuz) or in the area (forgotten the name) where the Pension Bergland and Jederman are located. Is one of these areas better than the other when it comes to walking/proximity to the Old Town? How plentiful are taxis, if needed, between these hotel areas and the Old Town? Any other guidance as to the layout in Salzburg would also be appreciated.

We stayed at the Jedermann - parking was free. I thought it was very nice (though the hotel is nothing to look at from the outside - nor is the immediate neighborhood). We walked to the old town each day... though you could take a bus. It seemed about 1 mile. If my directions are right - it was straight south of the city.

If you could stay in or near where the Altstadthotel Wolf-Dietrich hotel is, that is a good location. There is a public parking garage very close by and they have their own garage too.It is a very quick walk to the old town and their are good inexpensive restaurants in that area also.

We stayed at the Goldene Kroner, which is on busy pedestrian street, Linsergasse. The location was great, just a 10 minute walk form the Old City, but actually a more interesting area. The hotel was about $90 a night, and the huge underground parking garage was just down the street. The hotel itself was clean and simple.

We've always stayed in the Aldstadt itself, so I don't know the exact walking times from the hotels you mentioned. However, we've walked back to the train station a few times (without bags) and the walk is about 20-25 minutes as I recall. Directly in front of the station though, you can catch city buses that will take you right to the Old Town, and I imagine that buses would also be convenient to the Jederman and the Bergland. If you send an e-mail to them, they can probably give you good information about the public transportation that their guests use. Good luck.

We stayed here jan. 24 2005 for one night. Excellent!! Double is 60 euro, It is in Salzburg but it is on the bus line to downtown. Free covered parking, that was great for us since it snowed so much!

You cannot go wrong staying here, it is absolutely charming. Great breakfast included too

We stayed at Hotel Auersperg in Salzburg last may for appx. 65-70 Euro and it was beautiful. There is a hotel and an annex, we stayed in the annex but had hotel privleges (sauna etc). It is across the river from the old town/fortress area, but only a 10-15 minute walk. It is also about a 10-15 min. walk from the train station. I highly recommend this hotel for the price range.

I want to second the Steinerhoff Hotel. We also like to stay near the center of things, but the bus stop is just across the road from the Steinerhoff drive way and so it is very convenient. The views from some of the balcony rooms are wonderful and you feel like you are out in the country. Very quaint Bavarian decor and friendly family place. Huge rooms, too.
