Not only is this a spectacular location with beautiful and friendly town, but the pension is ideally located in the middle of town close to the lake. Our room had a lovely lake view and also mountain views from the sky light. The owners are very friendly and welcoming. The even gave us a small bottle of champagne for New... More

I guess it is hard to go wrong in Hallstatt because the place is so incredibly idyllic, but I'd recommend this hotel because of the views, service and cleanliness. We visited during the off season so nearly everything was closed. Eckbert (the owner of Hallberg) had a couple of rooms left and we took the zimmer overlooking the lake. Out... More

Hotel located in great location in middle of Hallstatt near lake. Although we only had a small room (. The last one available) the view was magnificent. Loved the free tea, coffee and yummy cake and biscuits provided. The Hosts were extremely helpful and welcoming, we loved our time in this very friendly location with our wonderful hosts.

We read all the reviews and saw a few which were not kind to Mr. Winkelmann, but I will have to say, that none of these people have actually met him, or even seen the hotel. I suspect that some of these reviews were probably written by people who had been less than straight with the booking process, and yes... More

We stayed here end of July 2014 with our two children (ages 9 and 10). The owners are fantastic and very kind. They were very helpful with recommendations which were spot on. Our room had a very nice view of the lake and was very clean. They provide coffee, tea, fruit and cookies in the main hallway which is a... More

Like another review, this is not a reflection on the accommodation itself, which looked lovely on the photos - but on the owners terrible customer service and grumpiness for lack of a better word. We are traveling for 11 months and therefore have a fairly relaxed itinerary. After getting in touch with the owner and confirming availability we had to... More

First of all this is not a review about the place but on the owner's attitude. Totally agreed with mnbmacleod1 review, owner became totally rude after I had to cancel my reservation due to unforseen circumstances. Would have been a nice place to stay, just be very sure of your itinerary before you confirm the reservation.

Even though my first impression while communicating with the owner with email was not so good (just like other people, the way he writes with english feels not so polite and the fact that I have to pay 100 euros in advance with my credit card which charges commission fee made me feel bad.) after I met him and saw...

We stayed here 4 nights in room 6. We used the little kitchen a time or two. The view is wonderful. We appreciated the parking right there at the pension. We took little day trips to visit other areas & lakes but always spent the afternoons in Hallstatt & found it the prettiest of towns. The owner is quite helpful... More

Our experience of Pension Hallberg was extremely pleasant. From the initial prompt response from the owner & manager Eckbert over the phone (great English) and email through to our induction upon check-in - Pension Hallberg was a great experience in an amazing location. We stayed in Studio 6 which has excellent views of the lake and and beautiful sitting deck... More
