We stayed at the Mumbai room at Arte Vida last May 8-12, 2012. You can see daily pedestrian life from the bedroom window which is cool. Arte Vida is not your typical hotel or B&B. It is like renting a studio apartment in the city which adds to the feeling of being a locale.
They have a common lounge area, a kitchen, and cafe bar. You can use the kitchen to cook. There is also Free WIFI internet.
Location is perfect! The major sights in Salzburg are within walking distance. Arte Vida is around the corner from Cafe Classic, which is a cafe in Mozart's old family house. It is also a few meters from the bus station "theatergasse", and Makartsteg bridge to the old town. There are lots of shopping and restaurants around Arte Vida on Linzer Gasse (turn right when you exit the main door of the hotel). There is also a Sparr grocery store on Linzer Gasse.
Our host Reinhold is super friendly and we had very nice conversations with him. We also met wonderful people while we were staying here.
The only con I can think of is parking. Read from other reviews that you have to park in another location which is about 5 mins walk. But since we came here without a car, we didn't have to worry about parking.
I would highly recommend this place. And the next time we go to Salzburg, we're definitely staying at Arte Vida again. =)
