I chose to pay extra money to stay at nicer, 4-star hotel to pamper ourselves after 1 week of staying at pension hotels. The hotel doesn't look shiny and well-maintained from inside or ourside at all. The room looked okay, nothing fancy about it. It needs renovation. The bath tub was clogged even after cleaning the hair out. The receptionists just didn't look like they wanted to be there even in the morning; very unfriendly and unhappy young people like my teenage daughter. There was never anyone who looked like a manager on duty. The internet by the front desk (2 pc's) were almost always occupied (except early in the morning)by a bunch of middle-eastern kids for their free entertainment, online games. If you see them, don't even waste your time lining up behind them. Those kids are everywhere in the hotel running from their room with their nanny to their parents' room in the hallway and taking up the tiny jacuzzi size swimming pool. The Pros: good location, excellent breakfast buffet, great dinner at the Pitter pub, easy access to trains and busess (strongly suggest a day at Mondsee lake by bus, 45 min). A/C worked for 2 days very well. for some reason, it didn't work well after that. Our room was on the 5th floor with no street noise and quiet at the end of the hallway. I'm sure you can pay less money for the same ambience.
