“Beware of room 10”
Reviewed 29 August 2010

I reserved a room months in advance and was promised a lake vew balcony. I should have read more of the trip advisor's reviews because I was expecting one of the beautiful balconies with the lake view. Instead, as already photographed in a previous review, our room was on the BACK side of the hotel. The room window had no view at all and the side door was to a public balcony with a table and ash-tray which looked mainly onto the neighbor's roof. You could partially see a little bit of the lake. This was a birthday present and was supposed to be the highlight of our trip. The room was so dark and gloomy. The other balconies were beautiful with flowers. I am showing an outside photograph with an arrow pointing to the room 10 balcony which did not even have any flowers (probably because there was not enough sunlight getting past the neighbor's roof. The other side balcony was quite beautiful and I am sure the front rooms had lovely views as described in the more recent reviews.

We asked the host if we could have one of the rooms with a real view, like in the photographs, and he said they were all taken. I was very disappointed and said we had been promised lake view balcony. He suggested we try the Heritage Hotel down the street, and fortuately they did have a view room available. However, it was much more expensive.

During a recent three week trip to Germany and Austria this was the location and hotel I was most looking forward to. It was to be the spot that we could just relax and enjoy the beautiful lake view from the room I had reserved with a balcony.

When we arrived, mid- afternoon, all the balcony rooms with the lake view had been given to other guests. We did have a room with a view of the lake but the tree in front of the hotel blocked most of the view when you were sitting at the table and chairs. To make matters worse the wait staff and cooks played a noisy game of soccer for a hour and twenty minutes on the street just below our window. No balcony, limited view, no relaxing!

Our room was clean but the small shower had mold in the grout so we ended up not using the shower. The breakfast that was included was very nice.

I think that the Braugasthof Lobisser deserves all of the good things that have been said about it. We loved pretty much everything about this place - obviously, the lakeside location is superb but what we really enjoyed was its unique character and ambience.

We usually like to stay in places with a certain faded charm about them but, whilst it has charm by the bucketload, there's nothing shabby about the Braugasthof. Laden with antiques and wearing the patina of the years, the whole building is beautifully cared for. From the creak of the stairs to the warmth of the welcome, the hotel feels just like one of those inns that you read about in old novels - for all the right reasons.

We had a room at the top with a balcony overlooking the lake and spent a few idle hours happily watching the comings and goings of the town. The bed was good, the bathroom simple but fine (if a little dated) and there was an antique tiled stove in our room which we are still coveting. Nothing was especially luxurious, but the overall sense of comfort was palpable.

The breakfast selection was extensive, the people kind (to the point of helping us to lug our heavy suitcases up the stairs, even though we arrived at a busy time - during a wedding reception). The whole place felt relaxed and homely (in the best sense of the word) with nothing particularly contrived about it - a pleasing blend of furniture and art that has evolved with the family over the years.

We ate dinner there and it was also memorable; had the weather been better, we would have enjoyed an evening on the lakeside terrace but the inner dining room was atmospheric enough.

The only thing I would mention is the fact that they don't seem to check their emails daily, so it might take them a while to respond to your initial enquiry. Be patient, it's worth it.

Nice little hotel. The rooms are not very big, no elevator or modern facilities, but a really wonderful view over the lake, wooden and precious old-fashioned decoration, kind staff, nice breakfast and breakfast room. We loved it.

The room itself, was of older date with various antiques around, and the TV wasn't your high end HDTV from whatever brand.

BUT! You're not there to watch TV, you're not there to sit around in your room, you're there for the absolutely breathtaking scenery, and the fantastic view, and WHAT a view it was!
The sunrise over the lake was so "in your face", it couldn't have been more fantastic! It rises above the mountain on the other side of the lake, and the sight was as taken from the view of your fantasies.

Also a very friendly staff. The hotel has been with the family for 4 generations, and they are very friendly and helpful with parking, and sightseeing, etc.

Don't expect a luxury hotel, but instead expect the most romantic getaway you can possibly imagine!

5 stars from here!

I have no pass any night at this hostel because they lost my reservatión two times, first by mail, sending de credit card number and second by phone. I spoke direcctly by phone when 2 weeks before the trip they don't answer my mails. They had lost my reservation and I give my name and credit card again. When I arrive they have book the roon to another person, and they say that I didn't give the card number, that was a lie.

I don't recomend this place because it is unconfortable arrive to an hotel and find that another one has your roon.

Spent 2 nights in May 08. Comfortable room (not huge), balcony with a stunning view of the lakes and mountains, bathroom was tiny. (anyone more than a bit overweight may not fit through the shower door). Up three flights of a narrow winding staircase - no elevator. (but easily manageable for most). Rooms and hallways are full of neat antiques adding a very nice touch. Breakfast was excellent in an elegant bright room. Ate dinner on their outdoor patio twice and it too was excellent. Staff were all friendly and helpful. Add to all of this the charming village of Hallstatt and this is a WINNER!. Price for the two of us was 84E per night..
