This place is very clean, quiet and a good deal if you are looking for a central location for a very reasonable price. We had our own room with a bathroom. There is a kitchen (2 burners - no oven - sink , fridge and microwave) on each floor and dishes, pots etc can be requested from the staff. The front desk staff are very friendly and helpful.
I wouldn't recommend it for people who are travelling alone or are looking to meet other travelers. It's pretty big and a bit institutional. It is a university residence during the school year. It's also beside a church with a large bell that chimes every 15 minutes starting at 7 AM - so not for those who love to sleep in either.
The included breakfast is pretty basic - buns, tea or coffee, juice, jam and packaged turkey spread.

Would have been ok if my feet/ ankles weren't throbbing & swelling. Have to find the voltaren before another walking tour tomorrow in Graz. Enough of ailments. Our tour took us through the old town where we met our tour director after lunch who walked (not again) back hotel to check in. ...

We finish the last night with a fantastic dinner at Restaurant Barenwirt. These guys are well drilled when it comes to hospitality. They have been open continuously since 1626. Austrian food has been fabulous so we are back on track with our growing investment, our waist line.
We are having a few technology issues which are giving our holiday an interesting twist. Adams' phone is getting darker and darker. When he takes a photo ...
We then biked down the lane that Julie Andrews sang and danced down when she left the Abbey and was going to meet the Von Trapp family for the very first time. After that we biked to the Gazebo which is now located in a park by Hellbrunn Palace. At this point we were pretty far away from town so we biked back into town by the University of Salzburg across bridges and finished back in the Mirabell Gardens ...
... buzz, we got a bit tired and peckish and decided to head back to the hotel for dinner. There isn't really anything remarkable to say about dinner, but for dessert we had to try the Sacher torte. It looked amazing and my review of it would be that the legend exceeds reality, but I'm not a big fan of chocolate and don't eat a lot of sweets so take my review with a grain of salt from the Salzburg salt mines.
Saturday we awoke ...
The hills are alive with the sound of music!! Salzburg begun with a night walking tour around this area of Austria. Snow peaked mountains surrounded us as we viewed some filming locations most identified to the movie based on the Von Trapp family. Dinner allowed us to try some of the more traditional Austrian food, pork schnitzel and dumplings, while we got into the local spirit of beer drinking! After dinner, we tried ...
