The likeable three-star Hotel Hohenstauffen has been owned by the same family since 1902. The staff is accommodating; children and pets will feel especially welcome.
The 31 rooms boast quaint and fussy offerings, such as bidets and canopy beds. Some rooms are a bit dated in décor. The green carpets and pink chairs set against iridescent white wallpaper are a touch too "garden" for us, but certainly not offensive. Other rooms, with wooden bed frames and maroon carpet, are easier on the eyes.
All rooms have satellite TV, and nearly all of the bathrooms have a tub and bidet. The rooms have views either of the street or the back parking lot. The windows are soundproofed, but since traffic is banned at night, there's not much noise to keep out.
The lobby wins points for its beautiful hand-carved desk, huge windows and wood-beamed ceilings. The lounge—large enough to host meetings but small and cozy enough for enjoying coffee and a book—has a few fun antique pieces, including a vintage jukebox and an old cash register that the owners rescued from the trash. Laundry facilities are available in the lobby for guest use.
The residential area Elisabeth-Vorstadt, despite some creepiness at night, has its perks. Tons of cheap Internet cafes and supermarkets are located here, and the Hauptbahnhof and center of town are but a few blocks away.
Breakfast is included in the rate.

About the Hohenstauffen neighborhood
Elisabeth-Vorstadt is convenient for those arriving by train, as 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.
