Booked this 'hotel' via hotels.com and although it was rather expensive it was not value for money and was more like a hostel. The location certainly is very convenient, only a short 5min walk across a foot bridge into the old town and is also convenient for getting buses to and from the Salzburg train station. We actually stayed in two rooms. The first room was rather large and we had plenty of room, although it was old, worn, looking well in need of an upgrade and some new furniture. Then for the second night, we were advised that they were "double booked" for some reason? So they moved us into a much smaller room without a bathroom, naturally we were not very impressed! We had to use the common bathrooms down the hallway. They were clean and fine but a little bit of inconvenience. They offered us a discount which was appreciated however we still weren't happy with what happened.
I can understand that this was probably, hopefully, a rare occurance. It did however give us an idea about what their smaller rooms were like though & it was terrible. It was like a little shoebox! Very tiny little room with not much natural light, extremely worn, old, scratched and dusty furniture (see pics). My partner and I were also were not impressed that it was twin bedding only when we'd asked for double.
So our stay was a bit hit and miss. All in all though it was not value for money at all, we would have been much better off going to a proper 'hotel', whereas this place has more of a hostel fell to it. It's very very basic, and rather old.
