This B&B is conveniently located within easy walking distance of the Abbey. It is however very quirky in that there is an overabundance of "stuff", so if you have no problem with clutter then this place is OK. The rooms are adequate in size, but bathroom European small. There is neither shampoo nor conditioner in the shower. Breakfast was good... More

Bright orange room and a chef with beads in his beard may not be everybody's choice but the cheerful and relaxed (not speedy) service overcomes one's wariness of the teddy bear decor. Early morning monastery bells affect all of Melk. Food was good - breakfast was excellent and plentiful. Very good value and a real 'experience' away from bland hotels.

Quaint original building from 1736 with beautiful individual decor. We had a room with separate bathroom which meant it was cheap. The room was lovely in a quirky way. Really enjoyed our stay and had one of the best nights sleep. It felt very friendly and safe. Owners were friendly and obviously valued the history of their building. Breakfast was... More

We had a great stay at the Gasthof Goldener Stern. They were very accommodating and were very friendly and prompt in their email communication. The location is super convenient and idyllic. Our room had a beautiful balcony where we enjoyed a view of the town. Yes, the owners are a bit snippy in person (seems like other reviewers agree) but... More

This hotel is in a great location in the charming little town of Melk, and its historic significance makes it a special place. When we walked into the hallway, I was immediately struck by the quirkiness of the place, but then, that just adds to its charm. We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. This is how our stay there...

We stayed at this hotel and had a wonderful time. The male owner with the beaded beard was very kind. I mentioned it was my wife's birthday and the next day at breakfast he surprised her with flowers and a little cake complimentary. We extended our stay because we felt so comfortable being there. They were very good about storing... More

The rudest hotelier in the world is at Goldener Stern, Melk, Austria. We arrived with back packs at 1.15pm 6 Sept 2014 and were offered a room by the male owner, which we were told would not be ready until 2pm. We agreed to take it, and went to explore the town, returning up hill to the hotel with our... More

My two older children and I stayed here for one night - we were warmly greeted at the door and the room we had was sweet with a view of the Abbey. We would have loved to have stayed longer. We enjoyed the quirky items around the room and the breakfast was sensational. We would have eaten in the restaurant... More

We stayed one night while traveling from Vienna to Hallstatt. Melk Abbey had been recommended by my neighbors who travel extensively. It was an easy walk with a rolling suitcase to the B&B from the train station. The B&B is in the center of town and located next to the abbey. The room was clean with a comfortable bed and... More
