The ideally located Christkönig-Kolleg Frühstückspension, built in 1376, is nestled behind Kapitelplatz in Altstadt. It's a perfect midrange-to-budget accommodation choice for those seeking atmosphere and location in place of luxury amenities.
Once a Catholic school, the building was converted to a 15-room pension in 1960 by a group of Dominican sisters from Berlin. As major renovations are not permitted, the original details—such as gorgeous vaulted ceilings and original stone steps—have been preserved. (One should note that religious iconography still has a major presence. However, everyone is made to feel welcome.)
Inside the Christkönig, the décor appears unchanged since the 1960s, with brown-and-white patterned curtains, wall-to-wall carpeting and floral lampshades. However, the result is atmospheric, not outdated—a feeling aided by a smattering of lovely antiques. And hey, who doesn't love a doily on their nightstand?
Bathroom situations vary, bringing a slew of choices with rates to match. The simplest options have just a sink; the fanciest have shower and WC en suite. A few rooms have a TV with a couple of Austrian channels; all rooms have Internet access and a telephone.
Some rooms have beautiful views of Mönchsberg and the Altstadt's rusting church spires; others face the historic building across the street.

About the Christkonig-Kolleg Fruhstuckspension neighborhood
The Altstadt is Salzburg's central hub. Its medieval layout is crowded with well-preserved baroque architecture, church spires, and 14th-century townhouses. Although the tourists pushing through winding, narrow streets can be a headache, expansive town squares give the throngs room to disperse. Mozart's Geburtshaus, countless churches, and a cluster of museums are a few of the bigger attractions.
