Seehotel am Hallstattersee
Ranked #6 of 11 Obertraun B&B and Inns
Reviewed 14 June 2014

We stayed here in Mid-May for 2 Nights. This is a basic hotel with an amazing view of the Hallstat lake. The rooms are small, clean with basic amenities. The staff is very helpful, courteous and will answer all your questions regarding the place. Our room was lake view room with a balcony which is the best part of the place. They have a good restaurant and have daily dinner menu. Being vegetarians, we requested if they could make something for us as the fixed menu had non vegetarian options. They kindly obliged and we were very happy with the food. We would definitely recommend this hotel for those who are looking for a peaceful holiday at a no-frills hotel.

First of all the staff were friendly (in their own way i.e. self service at the reception), but the service were really poor at the breakfast. They didn't refill the buffet neither with clean glasses and plates. The tables remained dirty for the latecomers. The room was ok for a night. We got a very little one.

In the best location. Room confortable whit refrigerator. Ppeople in front desk very friendly.
I was told to left the car in Parking 1. Be careful and do the same. There is a van to transfer you to the hotel. The only thing I didn't like was I had to pay the parking (9 Euros), bus is that. For the price of the Hotel, the parking mus be free...

Room Tip: Request a room with the lake view, especialy if you are in a honey moon..

The time when we visited Hallstatt was the low tourist season. The price is not as high as it could get to, as it's really close to the lake. We were also lucky to get the lake view private room with a small balcony (see the photo attached). The room is clean and tidy, although it's not big. During the summer, the nearby port will be open, which is very convenient for taking ferries to Hallstatt. Obertraun is not so big, but there are few hotels closer to the lake than this one. It takes 10 mins walk from the train station, but the scenery along the way is enjoyable.

Room Tip: Lake view is nice

Ater reading reviews I thought I would give this hotel the benefit of the doubt , to my regret . On arrival we were shown to a room what overlooked the very untidy car park area , My wife started to cry as this was what you coulsd describe as a poor student let. I will give the gentleman on reception his due he moved us immediately without question to a room with views to die for. But even this room was very tired and in desperate need of some tlc . the work what had been done was badly done diy. The staff were fiendly. It is real shame about its state of repair because with location like it has it could be a beatiful place to stay.

We booked this as it had reasonable reviews and we couldn't get a place at a decent rate in Hallstatt itself. The hotel is a 5 min walk from Obertraun train station, the rates are reasonable the room is sufficient. We had a ground floor Room which had a separate toilet and shower room with sink and a balcony facing the pool. the room was clean, the beds were comfortable. there is free wifi which worked ok in the room we stayed in. The breakfast was okay, sufficient and as we only stayed one night thus was fine. The lady at the reception during check in was very helpful. I think the bathroom though clean could do with some re grouting and an uplift, most part of our room had laminate or wood floors but a small part had an old carpet which needed changing. If this place could be spruced up a little I think it will stand out.

The dinner menu was veal and fish on the night I was there, no vegetarian option however they did say that they could and would make something for vegetarians which was very accommodating of them. I decided to go to the bowling alley nearby which had great food for veggies and non veggies alike. Fresh food great service and lots of choice.

Overall I'd say this hotel is good value for money and adequate for short stay a few niggles but apart from that all good.

Our first option was an inn at Hallstaat town, but being a group of 8, it is virtually impossible unless you reserve various rooms with plenty of time ahead. So, the only place with 2 Quads within two weeks of or trip was the Seehotel at the next town down the road - Obertraun. We were not disappointed. Although a few miles away, since we were travelling by car it was ok. Parking is easy and free. However, we noticed that a) the area train station is about 150 mts from this hotel, and b) there is a boat service also close by which takes you directly into Hallstaat for a few euros. Obertraun is a tiny town with its best days probably many decades ago, but is still an excellent and relatively tranquil place to stay if you are planning a few days in the area. There is a passive park with BBQ area bordering the lake and next to the hotel. Some locals were having a birthday party when we arrived. We took nice pictures here as the sun was setting, with the mountains and Hallstaat at the opposite side of the lake. Our quad rooms were relatively large but is because they are in the top floor with slanted roof, so you had to watch your head when getting off the bed in the morning. Furniture is basic, you can move the drawer cabinet with one finger. The TV, as someone else here also indicated, is a joke - 2 or 3 channels full of static, but then you don't come to Hallstattersee to see the TV. The bathroom fits only one person at a time, and there is another tiny room that serves as the shower area. Bring your own toiletteries as the hotel's soap and shampoo are like a fast food version of ketchup and pepper envelopes. The breakfast is adequate to start your day. If the ham, bread or cheese tray looks empty, ask for more because they kind of ration it, but will gladly provide it to your table. Perhaps it is because some tourists have hoarding customs. At night, it is very peaceful. There is a bookcase full of marine life themes so you can pick a book to facilitate you into sleep after a day full of activity in the Hallstaat area. Apparently someone here majored in marine sciences. The night attendant is very friendly. He will also be the one serving you a drink or tea at the veranda outside or providing more bed sheets when you are ready to retire to bed. In the morning, we woke up to the birds singing outside, with a wonderful view of the mountain scenery right outside the window.

Room Tip: The family room is Quad with bathroom, has nice view of mountain outside but is in third floor.
