This hotel is situated right off of the main square in Hallstatt and has amazing views of the lake from the balconies and large lakeside patio. There is no AC and wi-fi only in the lobby, otherwise we had very few complaints. The free breakfast was better than average vs what you typically find in Europe.

Lovely place, not great. The house is 500 years old so its charming but needs to clear some clutter. The food was fantastic so even if you don't stay there do visit it for the food. The restaurant is on the lake and the view is remarkable.

This is our second stay at Gasthof Simony in Hallstatt, Austria. Although the main floor entry, basement breakfast room and outdoor restaurant are greatly improved, there has been no modernization of the floors of the hotel. This is a very old, beautiful and desirable location directly on the Lake, so definitely a destination for travelers. With some updating of the... More

We stayed here for two nights in June. We booked a double room with private shower and toilet (balcony & lake view) several months in advance. It was a little pricey but all other well-reviewed hotels were already booked up, so we took a chance. We got room # 12, which is on 2nd floor (U.S. 3rd floor, top floor... More

Stayed here in a triple room with a shared bath overlooking the street. While the beds were comfortable the pillows were really flat. Even with two pillows it wasn't really enough. Claudia works in the lobby in the afternoons and is very nice and helpful. The breakfast was great and the lakeside restaurant was good. The street noise was very... More

I booked a room with lake view, it cost high but it deserved. It was really cool especially at nightfall that I was sitting in balcony.The location is good and easy to get there. But the door of washroom was nott really work well and the washroom was tiny.

We paid a bit extra for a lake-front room and it was worth it for the sunrise/sunset views as the swans and ducks glided on the lake. Cost was one of the more expensive on our trip, but worth it. Room was decent size and our bathroom on the smaller side. Floors and stairs are very creaky. Wifi is in... More

We are big Rick Steves fans and knew we had to come to Hallstatt. We were in search of an old cozy creaky inn with a lost in time feeling. We loved the inn for its charm and history and yes its a bit dated but we loved that aspect of it. The location was perfect as we had a... More

When you first arrive, there is a message on the door that requires you to call to have someone come in to do the check-in. Room was just o.k. as the bed linen was just on top of the mattress which you could see through. The covers are paper thin, the pillows so thin that even with two (there are... More

We spent three nights at the Gasthof Simony, in Hallstatt, departing 26 September, 2014. Hallstatt is a very cute little Austrian town, and the Gasthof Simony should be one of the most desirable Gasthaus’ in which to stay. It is a beautiful, old building, right on the main square in the old center of town, and right next to the... More
