My son and I stayed at the Richard Loewenherz hotel for two nights as part of a cycling trip from Prague to Vienna. The setting for this hotel is wonderful: tiny little ancient Austrian town sitting on the banks of the Danube in the middle of expansive vineyards. The hotel sits right on the banks of the Danube in a... More

This was a wonderful hotel. The room was pretty plain and simple compared to the grandness of the hallways. The restaurant was excellent with great views of the river. The hotel is located in the heart of the town with easy access to the bike and walking paths. The pool area and gardens were beautiful. We had cocktails in the... More

An outstanding hotel, in the superb historic setting of Wachau, the Austrian valley with a picturesque landscape formed by the Danube river. Dürnstein, where King Richard the Lion-Heart of England was held captive by Duke Leopold V., is located midway between the towns of Melk (the location of the famous Melk Abbey) and Krems. With a swimming pool placed in... More

This is a wonderful hotel. We stayed for a week. Our suite was on the top floor - from one room we watched the Danube flow slowly toward Vienna with boats and ships sailing by; from a second room we looked into a beautiful garden. Enchanting. Great breakfasts every morning. Walks through charming Durnstein to the Danube and the vineyards... More

Apart froxm the lovely room, building and grounds, the wonderful meals and delightful swimming pool, by far the best part of our experience was the exceptional kindness and help provided by the receptionist (Sabina) in helping me to retrieve my wallet lost earlier that day in Melk. She even persuaded the police to bring it to a nearby town to... More

First rate hotel with new, modern, beautiful rooms in an ancient convent. Patio has a spectacular view above the Danube, quiet and lush gardens too. Original antique furnishings and paintings adorn the rambling hallways. Lots of windows and stone. Restaurant was so so for dinner but breakfast was great and service was always prompt and friendly. Must see village.

This hotel is not worth the price it charges. We stayed in June (summer) for one night and decided we definitely would not care for an extension. There is no air-con, so you can imagine the heat in the room. There is also no fridge and no wifi. The safe, for some reason, is placed at the bottom of the... More

Our room and bathroom, although smallish, were perfectly clean, bright, tastefully appointed, and well maintained. It was the views, though, that made this place magical: From our balcony, one looked down on a large, flower-filled garden surrounded by ancient walls, with forested hills on one side and the Danube on the other; from poolside, one looked up to see the...

Durnstein is a dream down above the Wachau, close to Vienna. This hotel is a palace built within a former monastery. Right in the very center of this dream town you enter its courtyard. It is a magical place.
