I spent a November weekend touring the Wachau valley on the Danube, and I spent 2 days at this hotel. The hotel has a great location, right in the center of the town, across the road from the Town hall, in the pedestrian zone. Melk is a quiet little town on the Danube, but has an enormous and important abbey;... More

We were two couples travelling by bicycle along the Danube. We were very interested in spending some time at the Melk monastery and the location of this hotel was within walking distance right below it. The rooms we had overlooked the main street and were clean and quiet. There was no hairdryer, but after asking at the bar, one was... More

Very good value stay in the heart of Melk underneath the monastery - lovely sound of the bells. We stayed in a room on the front, overlooking the main street and outdoor cafe, so was noisy in the evening and into the small hours (had to have window open as a hot night). So I would suggest asking for a... More

Cafe Restaurant zum Fürsten is a good option to spend a night or two in Melk. Located in the heart of town, it's just a 5-10 minute walk to the famous monastery. Breakfast is alright, the rooms are very clean and it's very quiet.

The room are very clean with functional and modern bathrooms. Decent breakfast included in the price. Friendly staff and great schnitzel & tasty local beer. Melk Abbey , library and museum deserve a visit

We spent two nights here (64 Euros per night, including breakfast) in September, 2013. Our room was next door to the Cafe Restaurant Zum Fursten in the center of Melk, very handy to the Abbey and a delightful place to hang out for a short stay. We enjoyed the quiet, pretty village of Melk, even though there was a substantial... More

It is not possible to park right next to the hotel. You got to walk 100-200m from the nearest parking place. Surroundings of the hotel is very nice. The hotel is situaded right in the heart of Melk in the Rathaus street. We got room number 2. It was spacious and clean, but the bed was squeaking - and the... More

This was the cleanest,most comfortable and cute as a button, place. We just happened on it without reservations. The owner was so nice and accommodating. The breakfast was just perfect, the people were so friendly and spoke enough English to help us out with questions about the area, etc. We would definitely stay there again and recommend it to anyone...

We selected this hotel based on Trip Advisor reviews and were glad we did. Easy walk to/from train station, abbey, and boat docks on river. Room was very clean and recently renovated. Simple but good breakfast. Even in a small town like Melk some people stay out in the plaza until late at night, so it was noisy during hot... More

Located right in centre of old town Melk with the steps to Melk Abbey just a few feet away. We had a very comfortable double room on top floor facing out onto street. Bathroom clean with good shower. However the sliding door between bathroom and bedroom did not fit well. Good tv with lots of stations to watch. We had... More
