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

Stayed 1 night on Danube cycle trip . We were expecting to really like this hotel given the reviews but was underwhelmed on most counts . Our welcome was perfunctory and i don't think the owners acknowledged us at all during our stay . The room was massively over cluttered including at least 5/6 plants ( plastic and real) Breakfast...

We stayed in the last available room that included its own bathroom. The room was small (just barely room for the bed and a dresser), but the price was right, and we were greeted very warmly. Breakfast was great; when the owner found out my wife has a pre-diabetes condition that requires her to keep carb consumption low, she went... More

Great guesthouse with warm and friendly staff. Cool and unique rooms with a delicious breakfast. We liked it so much we extended our stay. We had dinner at the restaurant which was also very nice. The owner was great he even brought my wife a cake and flowers at breakfast for her birthday.

This was our second visit to the Goldener Stern and what a warm welcome we received! It was wonderful to be back to stay in such a comfortable place. This property sits below the Abbey and is in the centre of town so everything is handy. Breakfast was as good as ever & it was lovely to be able to... More

We were welcomed like we were coming home. The hotel sits in the shadow of the Melk Abbey and our spacious room overlooked the town and cathedral. It's a 15 minute walk from the river boat station which is how we arrived and a 5 minute walk to the train station. Dinner in the restaurant was excellent and breakfast was... More

Location: guesthouse in pedestrian zone of tiny Melk, within walking distance of the Abbey. Hard to find with a car, so we parked and walked instead which was very simple. Eclectic decor throughout. Carpeting on stairs could use a spruce up. Room: stayed in a family room for 5. A double in one room and a second room which had... More

I spent 2 nights in room #6, "Prince Radetzky." Toilet and shower (shared with room #3) were separate, down a short flight of stairs; there was a sink in the room, a large comfortable bed complete with a cuddly stuffed duck, and an amazing view of the Abbey out my window. It was an easy walk from the train station,... More
