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

The main floor is a restaurant (with a decent breakfast included in the price), the rooms are above. Modern enough, considering the town...but no air conditioning. Nothing wrong with the place, definitely a good option for a quick stay. 31 EUR per person included breakfast.

We stayed in melk on our cycle trip and it is certainly worth the stay. The hotel was a good with renovated rooms and good breakfast. You can keep the bycicles in the backyard. The only minus point was, that it was very hot in the rooms - but 33C outside - and fairly noisy from the people on the... More

I accidentally discovered Melk, while driving down the highway from Budapest to Cesky Krumlov. We saw the abbey from the road and drove in to the city. I never take the first hotel I see. I like to go a little further in to the town and inquire at places. My room was upstairs in a very quiet building. 39... More
