Seehotel Gruener Baum
Ranked #1 of 4 Hotels in Hallstatt
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 August 2013

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.

The hotel is great, right on the lake. Our room view was on the main square, and there was an event that day with an orchestra, so it made it very special :) We felt like we had special sittings to a concert!
The room is very big, but as previously said there's the minimum: the room has a lot of space so it looks quite empty as there are only a few furniture.
The staff was absolutely lovely, from reception to restaurant. We arrived later than usual and they still accepted to provide us with food (which I didn't find so expensive, 13 or 14€ for a main of pork schnitzel with potatoes is fine). The restaurant view is divine, right on the lake.
The only downsize was the bus shuttle that we had to wait for over half an hour, it's not the hotel's fault as it belongs to the city but just FYI it can take a while to arrive :)

Room Tip: If you can afford the extra bucks book a room with lake view, it must be amazing!

As others have said its a super location although we missed out on the lake view rooms and were relieved not to have one overlooking the square as there was a lot of repair work going on as a consequence of the Flash flood. I am happy to report that there is free Wifi and a lift which were both lacking when others visited. The restaurant is superb with great views good food and service ( and prices to match) but we thought it worthwhile paying extra for such good food and the views.

But the room was not up to standard. It had a comfortable bed and a nice bathroom and designer minimalist décor of black tiles and cream walls. I suspect however that his was a designer who never stays in hotels as some basic requirements were lacking. In the bathroom there was nowhere to hang towels or wash bags and very little shelving despite a large empty alcove. In the room itself there was a battered old wardrobe which didn't fit in with the décor no curtains and no bedside lights- these are surely basic requirements.
When mentioned to the charming receptionist she blamed it on the floods saying they hadn't been able to get stuff in due the damage to the road but I note that reports of these deficiencies go back before the flood

We also stayed with Inntravel and hope they will use their influence to get rooms for their clients up to scratch

Room Tip: Go for Lake view rooms if you can afford the extra but check that they are properly equipped

We had a beautiful room overlooking the lake with a huge balcony. We also happened to be in Hallstatt on the night of the June flash flood. The staff did a remarkable job seeing that we were fed and taken care of that night. If you are in Hallstatt, this a remarkable place to stay.

Room Tip: Rooms on the lake side are awsome.

Our room was spacious and we enjoyed the wood floors, Oriental rugs, modern bathroom and furniture. Newly renovated and a few extras like lights beside the bed and towel hooks in the bathrooms are needed additions, but overall we loved it. The restaurant is lovely overlooking the lake and the food was fantastic and the breakfast offers a lot of choice. The shuttle for the parking lot was very convenient and the driver helped us with our bags. Everyone who worked there was very friendly and helpful.

The hotel opened in May, 2013, after renovation. It's beautifully and simply refurbished. Our room over looking the lake was exactly what I wanted from a hotel in Hallstatt. It was large and clean with lovely wood floors, a luxurious rug, and furniture with clean, modern lines. The breakfast was excellent. I liked the hotel so much I hated to leave.

Room Tip: Spend the money for a room with a view of the lake.
