“Beautiful setting, could use some updating”
Reviewed 14 April 2012

We arrived late for our one night stay and the staff was very nice and accommodating. Hallstatt was beautiful and definitely worth the stay. Our room was adequate, but looked a bit dated and worn, could use some fresh paint and carpet. Normally I wouldn't say anything about that but I felt we paid a pretty high rate to stay there so I expected a little more. We had a standard double room, but because our daughter was with us we had to pay an additional 48 euros, making it the most expensive room in our whole European vacation, but yet it was probably the last in quality. I probably would choose a hotel on the lake for the views if we return to Hallstatt.

The hotel itself is very charming, the owner is very lovely and helpful, room is clean and breakfast is nice.
The location is a bit far from the center and the main lake. depends on what you want, if you want to have the lake-view feeling, this is probably not the right one, but if you are looking for quiet time, this is a great location.

Room Tip: We choose the king-size bed one, it has a lovely balcony facing mountain

The Gasthof Hirlatz is a charming family-run guesthouse in Hallstatt. There are four generations of the family living and working at the premises, which makes it a real family home with a charming atmosphere. Everyone is very friendly and welcoming, and make time to get to know their guests, and to give them helpful advice and assistance.
The Hirlatz is on the edge of the village, but Lake Hallstatt is only ten minutes' walk away, and the hotel is just by the scenic Echerntal with its walking and hiking trails. The setting is very peaceful with a mountain stream running nearby.
The home-cooked food is always excellent, especially the game, which is a speciality of the region, and we can see that it is prepared with loving care and attention.
The rooms are fine for our needs, and the view from the balcony is magnificent. There is also a well stocked and reasonably priced mini-bar.
We have been coming here regularly for ten years, and hope to come back this year and for many years to come.
Peter and Jane.

Fell in love with the town after seeing a simple picture.

The family-run guesthouse was charming and perfectly situated in the sleepy mountian town. The room was bright and coxy, the family was friendly and welcoming, and the breakfast was chock-full of lactose-free treats. Yay!

It was positively delightful!

Room (suite) was fine but a limited choice of breakfast consumables and we had one dinner in the guesthouse which was just not good enough really.

A few changes and a bit of updating would really improve this guesthouse.

Room Tip: For a bit more space book a suite.

This has to be the most picturesque village surrounded by mountains with the b&b nestled right next to them. Just a five min walk from the lake and town we were made very welcome and the free parking there came in very handy! We had a junior suite which was so spacious and had a balcony with a great view. The staff were so helpful I can't praise them enough and the food was great. They have a pool but can't advertise it as it no longer complies with Austrian law but guests can use it. I would highly recommend staying here as it is in a great location to see the stunning Halstatt. We will be visiting again!

A warm welcoming place to stay. Short walk into the village down a beautiful lane next to a flowing river. Staff were wonderful. Food was great. The location is totally stunning. I would certainly stay here again.
