Salzburg - Accomodataion

Staying in Salzburg at the end of September. Recommendations for accommodation while touring the city?

I'd be happy to have tips on what to see/do, but haven't started working that.

We really liked Die Weisse Taube for the friendly folks, nice breakfast and excellent location. Our stay was a couple of years ago, however, so you might want to check more recent reviews. Easy to reach from train station by local tram. We also got the Salzburg card and used it to schedule and arrange our sightseeing over the three days we spent. Great value we thought, also included transportation. Safe travels.

I always recommend Boutique Hotel am Dom. Great little family run hotel, upscale, with a location that cannot be improved on.

Second Hotel Elefant. Great location in the city center. Also a nice restaurant.

Thank you all for the valued input.

I am reviewing your recommendations, Steves' book "Vienna, Salzburg & Tirol", and the AUSTRIAN blog.

We've done three very enjoyable and memorable Steves' tours. It would be great to find that kind of "through the back door" accommodation in Salzburg at a reasonable price.

We stayed at the Goldenes Theater Hotel for 4 nights and had a wonderful time there. It's across the river from the old town, so it wasn't quite as expensive but still only a 10-15 easy walk though a quaint shopping district to get over there. There was a parking garage around the corner from the hotel and the hotel gives you an access card. It also has air-con!, which seemed to be a rarity in Salzburg. We were there during the awful European heat wave [Salzburg tot luck an only hit near 100] so we were quite grateful. There's a small bar for a drink at night and a good breakfast in the morning.

We loved the Hotel Kasererbraeu, Kaigasse 33, 5020 Salzburg, Austria. It was a bit more in price, but the location meant we could easily walk everywhere (walking the streets early in the morning before the crowds is a ton of fun). The hotel was beautiful and the foundation dates back centuries. We did a suite on top that had a rooftop patio and a ceiling window that let us look up and see the castle. There are several restaurants nearby that were good as well. Highly recommend.

We also have stayed at Goldenes Theatre Hotel several times -- good location, great breakfast. We usually are there for Christmas markets so I can't speak on A/C but I can verify that their heaters work.
