Cheap hotels in Elisabeth-Vorstadt, Salzburg
Elisabeth-Vorstadt is convenient for those arriving by train. Most of the neighborhood's hotels are located within a few blocks of the station. While the Hauptbahnhof area—with its vulgar melange of lousy döner stands and places with names like CINEPLEXX—is an insult to everything beautiful about Salzburg, it is easily avoided.
Things look up a few blocks west. A couple of sex shops sit among the quiet apartment buildings, but there are also countless cheap Internet cafes, a few inexpensive Turkish supermarkets, and a 24-hour gas station stocked with food. Saint-Julien-Strasse, which runs through the neighborhood, feels like part of a much larger city.
