“Nice view, great location, old building.”
Reviewed 26 August 2013

This guest house located in very good area in this lovely town, price was reasonable. View from our room was excellent (room2). Room and bathroom was good but there is some noise when walk, like bed.
The pillows were very thin, the mattress was too soft .
I think this guesthouse need some improvement about room quality.
Service is adequate, but you need to check out before 10am.

This is a really tough review to write. I am only giving the place 3 stars partly because all the other places we stayed on our trip were so amazing. We had a room at Simony that had a wonderful view and was clean and comfortable. The place is very old and quite a bit run down, That didn't bother us too much - it just felt cozy. The reason for the 3 stars has to do with the atmosphere. The ladies who ran the front desk and breakfast areas were not friendly at all - they actually seemed like they were very unhappy. The breakfast area was really small and crowded and a bit uncomfortable. You couldn't ask about any local attractions etc. All in all not a bad place to stay just a bit overpriced for what you get.

We had a balcony overlooking the beautiful lake, so our overall experience was wonderful. Indeed, the rooms are rustic, but the cozy atmosphere was great. If the weather is good, you can take out canoes, and sit on the shore of the lake, sunbathing. It is in the heart of the little town of Hallstatt. You can hear church bells throughout the day. Wifi is only available in the lobby. The restaurant below was very good, with excellent service. Breakfast at this hotel was just ok, but sufficient.

Room Tip: must get a balcony to enjoy the whole experience.

The location is very good, close to ship dock and next to the lake(but you need room with balcony to enjoy it from your room). Wifi is available at lobby. Bed size is ok but quite old and noisy. The restroom is tiny. When you sit on toilet, your knee will touch the wall, so spread your leg if you are tall. The room is clean but looks old. They take only cash when you check-in, so prepare cash.
Just try to enjoy beautiful Hallstatt, not the hotel(or guest house). Some rooms don't have private bathroom and shower.

Room Tip: Ask for lake-view room. It's a little bit more expensive than other room but it has nice view an...

I’ve stayed here twice now and that’s enough. The first time I found the dusty antiques charming, but on my second visit I realized the place needs to overhauled from top to bottom. The bathrooms are hopelessly outdated, the beds are lumpy, and the fussy, decades-old locks on the doors are unsafe – good luck trying to get out of your room in a hurry if there were any kind of emergency. Of course the location remains excellent, right on the lake, and the views are just spectacular, but there is much work to be done indoors.

The hotel is situated in heart of town, the building is a 450 year old house, it's yellow and it's lovely! We were given a room on the third floor where the view from our balcony was magnificent. The room was cleand and the beds was fluffy and comfortable. We very much enjoyed our stay, would go back there anytime ...

I spent 2 nights in a single room with lake view balcony, toilet/shower down the hall, sink in the room. The room was rather small, but the balcony view was amazing. I spent a lot of time out on that balcony, enjoying the view and watching the comings and goings on the lake.

The hotel is very well-kept, comfortable and clean, with helpful staff. Included breakfast was good, and Wi-fi is available in the breakfast room. The building is indeed charmingly creaky, more like staying in a house than a hotel. The only sounds at night were the waves on the lake, an occasional quacking duck, and sometimes the creaking of someone moving about. No TV. Lovely. (Okay, I'm used to city traffic and sirens, so I turned on my Ipod at night.)

The hotel is just off the main square, a very short walk from the dock, an easy walk to everything else. It was a very relaxing couple of days.

Room Tip: Lake view balcony room!
