We booked this hotel as part of our honeymoon and took the lake view. The room was great, the bathroom must have been renovated. The balcony was huge and facing the lake and the view is breathtaking. Just sitting there and looking at the view is worth millions. The room was very organized and cleaned everyday. There is no air conditioning and we had to keep the doors closed because of the mosquitoes, so it was pretty hot in the room at night.
The two main things that bothered me were that the bathroom sink was leaning down as if it was going to fall, I did tell them at the reception, but no one came to see it. One of the waiters was very rude to us: he rudely dismissed us when wanting to sit on one of the tables to have lunch (this was the minute we arrived and we were very hungry), the day after, at night we just walked down the terrace to look at the lake and he came rushing out and closed the doors as if telling us to get out. I would have appreciated him saying we are closed now. It was just that one waiter. There was another really nice waiter there (I think he runs their facebook page) and he offered us champagne or any other drink. The two receptionists were very nice as well and helped as much as they could and one of them even gave us a discount for being there on our honeymoon.
The hotel is central, you can't have the car with you so you have to keep it in the parking which costs about 8 Euros for 24 hours. It is best if you come by car because after you walk through Hallstatt and go up the mountain to the salt mines (the hotel gave us a discount for the salt mines), you should have a way of transportation to travel out of it. We took the car and drove around all the lakes.
Hallstatt was my favorite place. I would definitely stay there again.
