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

Accomodation in Melk is pricy. From that perspective Goldener Stern is an acceptable accomodation. It is centrally located, literally wall to wall with the abby, and with an ancient history. The rooms are nice, and attended to daily. Somwhat on the small side though. What makes this place worthwhile staying at is the nice family running it. They hardly know... More

In planning our trip to Austria, we made time for one night in Melk. Now we wish we could have stayed longer. We found a small hotel, well positioned, in the quaint old town part of the village. Literally built on the first street next to the cliff next to the abbey was the Gasthof Goldener Stern. It was next... More

We spent just one night at the Gasthof Goldener Stern while taking a boat trip on the Danube and touring the beautiful Melk Abby. The host who met us at the door was a little abrupt but his wife was a wonderful host who spoke very good English. The guest house is located down a narrow pedestrian street where we... More

I spent five nights at the Goldener Stern in April 2012 traveling the bike trail from Passau to Vienna and then on to Budapest, where I am now. The weather had turned cold and wet and I needed a rest from sleeping in my tent in that weather for a week. I was greeted enthusiastically by Regina, one of the... More

My husband and I stayed here for only 1 night after a Danube River cruise from Krems last May (we took the train from Vienna to Krems that morning). After arriving, we wished we had planned to stay longer. Melk is a picturesque town, and the Golden Star was quaint and cozy with a friendly staff. The room was very... More
