Stayed at the Forstinger for 27 days in march while on a training trip. Check in was fast and the staff was very friendly. Stayed in APT 3 which was very comfortable and clean. I plan on a personal trip to the same area next year and plan on staying there a few day while visiting. A few of my... More

The hotel is located at the lovely and historical city center. The check in and speed was satisfactory. The free wifi increases the satisfaction. The room is furnished with some old or traditional wooden furniture but everything was clean. I can recommend for short business trips.

My husband had some business in the area and we stayed for 9 nights. The breakfast was very good and the staff were very nice. The only thing was that I left the Do Not Disturb sign on the door a few days and I was still bothered by housekeeping and maintenance one day. Housekeeping did not understand any English,... More

Dear Wildomar, With pleasure I have read your comments! I remember well that you enjoyed staying in the apartment nr. 1 and that you preferred not to be disturbed by housekeeping. I am really sorry about that, especially because the room maids did not respect the ‘Do not disturb’ sign. It’s true that they do not speak English very well... More

Stayed here whilst attending a training course nearby and found the hotel to be a good place to stay and there are various places to eat and drink all within walking distance of the hotel. The hotel staff were also very polite and helpful as well.

On my first trip to Scharding, I stayed at the Hotel Forstinger on the recommendation of fellow employees of my company. My room was a wonderful suite and extremely quiet. The breakfast was delicious and allowed us to fill up for a long work day. Margaret (Owner/Manager) was very hospitable and attentive. Thank you for the great experience for my... More

I chose this cozy hotel to be my home and I have been living there for 4 months and all I can say is that I love the place, in special Forstinger family treatment that makes you feel confortable and welcome.

Hotel very close located to the market place in this nice little village. I was surprised that the receptionist joined me to show my room and give some explanation. It was a spacious room with a nice bathroom and a quiet room. Excellent free WiFi connection even to view my favorite late Belgian journal on my IPad. In the morning... More

I stayed at this hotel for close to a month while on business and all I can say was I wished I could have stayed longer. We met a guy from Texas who was staying there because he was assigned to work nearby. He looked into renting and decided to live at the Forstinger. He stayed there for three years!... More

This hotel is a hidden gem in the old city of Schaerding. Ok, there is no elevator but this is not needed for a 2 story hotel, right? Stayed there in room 205 facing the market place on the night of 6. to 7.6.13 for a business trip. Now imagine a nicely renovated hotel, large room, comfy beds PLUS -... More

With my wife we spent one night in Forstinger, on a backway from Hannover. I booked the room directly on the Hotel's website. The booking was fast and correct. We got the room we asked for, even it's not usual to give the special rooms - in this case room with roof-terrace - to a one-night-spender...At the reception the woman... More
