This is a beautiful building and a great central option for the budget traveller to Salzburg. This is a traditional building (built it 1507). Centrally located in Salzburg, right in the heart of the pedestrianised zone near the Linzer strasse. All shops and the old town are easily accessible on foot.

Schwarzes Rossl

As a traveler having been to Salzburg numerous times, this hotel was the best combination of price/location I have yet to find. The breakfast is as the next door restaurant (IceZeit) and is fine, but the 5 minute walk to the center of the Alt Stadt, Festspielehauses, transport and its walkable distance from the Hauptbahnhof make it ideal! Many rooms have attached WC/Shower, however I opted not to have one of these and never saw another soul use the communal facilities (single/private shower/toilet). The staff are very helpful and multilingual. Try to get a room on the front-facing street (Priesterhausgasse) as there is a noisy bar on the back that rocks late into the night and may keep you up. Some of the better restaurants (pricing and food) are found on this side of the Salzach and are very close to this hotel: Alter Fuchs etc.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Go head to the Alter Fuchs (within short walking distance on the pedestrian only Linzergasse) and grab a set in their courtyard garden. Dinner in Salzburg doesn't get more relaxed or of a better value than this place!

Great for younger travelers, clean and comfortable

We had a lovely stay at this hotel. It is an easy walk to Schloss Mirabell or over the bridge into the Altstadt. Reception speaks English and is very accommodating. The hotel looks freshly painted and is very clean, with nice facilities. Our only detractor was the construction going on across the street during our stay in Sept 2011, but it didn't disturb our sleep. Also there is usually a group of friendly students hanging out in the lounge at night if you are in the mood for company.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Be sure to get a Salzburg Card from the Salzburg Information desk in the train station. You can get them for 24 or 48 hours, and it covers all of your bus transportation plus almost all of the attractions in the area, including the fortress on the hill, Mozart's house, Schloss Hellbrunn and the Zoo.

Loved it!

This hotel was wonderful. We had a shared bathroom, but it was always open and it was spotless! The rooms had sinks and mirrors in them, so we didn't even need the bathroom all that much. The rooms were beautiful and spotless. The location was great - it was an easy walk to the aldstadt, and a moderate but definitely doable walk to the train station. The best thing was the delicious breakfast buffet that was included. My only complaint was that there wasn't a public computer with internet access (I'm not sure if they had wireless, because we didn't bring laptops).
