“Not just a Gasthof”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 September 2013

Having returned for a second week with Leo & Gaby in the attractive village of Senftenberg I immediately felt at home. They had ensured I had the same room as last year and put my friend Jill in the next room. Jill was new to this part of Austria and fell in love with the Gasthof straight away. Although I had told her what a great place it was to stay in , it was so much better than she expected, and Leo's total dedication to ensuring our stay ran smoothly was she said over and above anything she had experienced elsewhere. On top of the comfort, Gaby's home cooking, Leo's attention to detail on our itinery, this is truly more than just a Gashof. It is the ultimate in value for money.

Room Tip: Our rooms were facing the street giving us a view of a beautifully restored old house with the backg...

Senftenberg is just 7km. north of Krems, but it's off the beaten track.
Quiet & yet so convinient for day trips in the Wachau valley, in the wine district St. Poelten etc.
It was pure luck I had found this place.
The accomodation is small(about 9 rooms), run by a married couple who are completely devoted to making their guests enjoy the stay.
The rooms are spotlessly clean & have everything to make one comfortable, including a well stacked minibar, free WLAN in room, hairdryer, flat screen TV & much more.
Breakfast is ample & served to the table.
Dinner, cooked by Mrs. Janu, is fresh, versatile & very tasty.
I've read somewhere else a review complaining about the bathroom being a plastic box.
So what? As long as it is sparkling clean, the towels are fluffy & the shower head is a GROHE,
who cares about the lack of tiles? And that's before even mentioning the very attractive price.
Would I stay there again? Certainly.
Would I recommend it? Without any hesitation.
Getting to know such people like Mrs. & Mr. Janu is a privilege!

The place was nice, service was excellent, Leopold was very helpful and friendly. They have excellent breakfast along with a quality and not expensive dinner. If we stop by there again (and most probably we will) we shall again book our stay with them.

Being elderly and speaking no German I was lucky to find the perfect accommodation for myself and friend. You could not wish for better people than Leo and his wife Gaby who run the Gasthof set in a timeless village just a short bus ride from Krems. We had booked tickets to see a performance at The Spanish Riding School in Vienna and the other main object was a short cruise on the Danube, the rest of the week was unplanned but with Leo's help we were assured of a new adventure every day. Senftenberg with its castle ruin, pleasant surroundings and truly friendly inhabitants was a good base. We came home each evening to a delicious early supper before retiring to our nice comfotable bedrooms and the best shower I have ever seen. We did find a good place for coffee as well as a shop and bank. A truly successful week.

Room Tip: I think they are all good, everyone we met seemed happy to be there!

We spent in Pension Leopold Janu just couple of days (Thursday to Saturday) but it was very nice stay. The place is run by a married couple who is very nice and takes care of the place with passion. Rooms are very clean, and well furnished. The garden with apricot orchard is perfect for hot afternoons. We spent our days there with our small dog and owners have no problem with that. Breakfast was great although some vegetable or fruit would be good to serve but apricot marmalade which we bought home is just great. The town of Senftenberg is very quite, good for walks, sightseeing of the ruin but there is no place to eat or shop. But the city of Krems is 15 minutes by car so it is not problem at all.
