Good location, walkable distance both to the station and the old city. Food is with good quality and quantity. The room is rather small but enough for one-night stay, very clean, tidy and so cute.The only negative factor is attitude of staff; she said the reception opens at 6:00 in the morning but not true. Other guests and I had to wait for her more than half an hour. There was no answer though we called the shown phone number in case of need. I wanted to check the bill before breakfast. She looked in a bad humor when I told her so.

My experience at Lechner was very good. It could be excellent if the hotel would have had wi fi or ilimited access to the area of computer. It is very important taking into account the GM difference between Europe and Latin America. The breakfast was excellent.

I was very pleased with this hotel. It is not a luxury hotel - but that is not what I asked for. The staff was very service-minded and helped me to get utensils for the stove in the room. It's very nice indeed to be able to make a cup of tea in your room in the evening! I also had something to drink while waiting for the bus to the airport. Small things like this make you feel very welcome! If I come to Salzburg again I would gladly stay at Lechner again. One may mention, though, that there is no lift, so you have to climb the stairs to get to your room. For me this is OK, but it's important to inform people about this.

The pension was within walking distance to the main train station, and a 10-15 min walk to the major sights of Salzburg. The hostess was very friendly and helpful, the room was spacious, and the breakfast was fine. There is no elevator, so keep that in mind if you have heavy luggage. Some rooms do not have a private bathroom as well.

The Twin room we stayed in was small, and poorly renovated. The noise from the train station is loud, and can keep you up at night. Customer service is bad, you need to ask the owners of the bar next door if you need anything, since the owner of Lechner hotel is nowhere to be found most of the time.

The only quibble was although they knew I was due to arrive at 2000 there was no-one there, paricularly as the Gaststatte next door wasn't open on a Sunday night. After a wait of about 20 minutes the Inhaber arrived and all was well. Absolutely no problems after that and a perfect base for a week in Salzburg.

The single room I stayed in was small. The noise from the train station is quite disturbing, and can keep you up at night. Customer service is bad, you need to ask the owners of the bar next door if you need anything, since the owner of Lechner hotel is nowhere to be found most of the time. One night, the owners were having a party in the lobby of the hotel, keeping the guests up with the noise until past midnight. If you are looking for a pleasant stay in Salzbourg, I do not recommend the hotel unless your budget is really tight!

L'albergo è molto carino ed accogliente.Le stanze sono ampie e confortevoli, con angolo salotto (divano e tavolo con tovaglia ricamata!); l'arredamento particolare e simpatico (mobili degli anni cinquanta), così come il bagno!!(una struttura prefabricata ma funzionale e ben integrata con la stanza). L'hotel è davvero vicino al centro storico dela città e dispone di un cortile interno dove è possibile parcheggiare l'auto gratuitamente. Il personale è simpatico e cordiale. All'hotel è collegato un pub ristorante dove si possono mangiare dei buoni piatti tipici e bere della buona birra in un ambiente sereno e confidenziale. Ci siamo trovati davvero bene!Ve lo consigliamo.

Fairly average for the price. Breakfast was fairly ordinary - the first morning they seemed to be running low on most things (eg 4 slices of bread), and we were the first there! Plus the fruit salad was off (that lovely zingy taste...). No hot food either. Service could have been better. The water from the shower was draining so slowly it was overflowing onto the bathroom floor, but despite asking the owner and then leaving a note for the maid nothing was done. I had to ask twice for extra pillows too. Location is good though, and the restaurant next door was a highlight of our stay in Salzburg, a mom and pop operation where we were treated like locals the second time we went in.

We enjoyed our stay at Pension Lechner very much. The room was very pretty & comfortable. The breakfast was excellent & it was very handy having the restaurant next door. When we compared prices & quality with other restaurants in Salzburg, we were very impressed. We would both stay again at the pension/hotel.

My biggest complaint is that on our second night staying at this hotel, we awoke to find that there was no hot water. Apparently, the entire hotel did not have hot water, I believe because the day-time front desk clerk forgot to "turn it on". Which begs the question, why exactly was the hot water off? If we are paying for a room, aren't we supposed to be able to shower at any time with hot water? We woke up at about 7:30 a.m. and found that there was no water, and that there would be no hot water for quite a while until it all was heated. This meant that we needed to shuffle our schedule around quite a bit. As well, our room was facing the street and was VERY loud with the window open (something that you must do at night in July). The front desk woman was surly and seemed genuinely annoyed anytime we needed to ask her about anything. It was not a completely negative experience (the rooms are newly renovated, clean, and well decorated; the location was good; the price was ok) but I would not recommend this place to anyone that I know.

Average place. The location is excellent. The restaurant next door is surprisingly good (avoid the LP recommendation across the street!). The double rooms are much nicer than the single. More like an old hotel than a pension.

Two double rooms were booked. I would have preferred to rate them separately, as one was very good and the other one poor. One was spacious and quiet, whilst the other was very small and the noise from outside was very loud. Breakfast was very good.

Location to the train station and eating/shopping areas was pretty good. A taxi from the airport cost about 15 Euros. The staff were competent and helpful, if not forthcoming. The room size (single) was what one would expect and had most of the conveniences expected. Lack of a hairdryer and satellite TV channels would be an inconvenience if one's stay was lengthy. Great little bar/restaurant next door which served cheap and hearty meals, with friendly staff. Breakfast at the Lechner was nice and served by friendly staff. Only negative point would be that the Reception shut early - 6pm - which was an inconvenience when my flight was delayed, then diverted. My arrival was really late and there were no signs in english to say what to do. Luckily the restaurant next door knew I was expected and helped me out, but this could have turned into problem if I had been any later. However, I would stay here again.

What a superb accommodation for the price. Well situated to all the local sights, Christmas markets etc. all within walking distance. Excellent choice for breakfast and always replenished if low. Rooms although 'tired' decoration wise were spotlessly clean and comfortable. Overall an excellent choice ! We will return in the summer.
