Thanks for looking
I've stayed at Hotel Lasserhof in Salzburg with two friends - we had a triple room on the corner of the first floor for 100 EUR. I would say it was a great hotel - good service, decently clean, good beds, and free internet in the lobby. Also offered a great, free continental breakfast in the mornings. I would definitely say you made a good choice with this hotel!
