Our stay at this guesthouse was just over two years ago (Oct. 2011), but we have not stopped talking about it since, and (unusually for us) finally decided we simply had to write a review. Despite our arrival at a late hour (which we had phoned in advance to announce), we were met by the elder Mr. Zauner - a... More

Mixed reviews. Booking.com described the room that we booked as having a balcony and mountain view. Hotel did not honour this room description - tiny room with water rushing past down a drain just below our window and as such, could not leave the window open due to the noise, very old and mouldy bathroom, no view at all. Expensive... More

I've been meaning to write a review since we returned back in June. My husband and I "stayed" at the Gasthof Zauner in June. I say "stayed" because we were unable to actually stay the night in the hotel due to the flood. We were enjoying dessert in the restaurant when the flood came through the hotel. The staff remained...

We had 3 nights at Gasthof Zauner and despite the great location we would have moved after one if we hadn't prepaid. The floods in June ran right through the ground floor and I wonder how much of our problems were a result of that, however for the tariff we paid I expected better than a shower that didn't drain...

We stayed at Gasthof Zauner for three days and it was excellent, starting with location location location! Hotel Zauner is near the town center and close to the lake pier. Since Hallstatt is a pedestrian (aka walking only) city, this location is great. For a fabulous view of the lake, ask if room #28 is available when you make the... More

Friendly and helpful hotel staff, from the owner to the waitress. Very close to major point of interest. The bed was very clean, however, the bathroom needs major renovation. I think they will embark on renovating the hotel soon. As per other reviews, the owner pays more attention to the restaurant than the hotel.

Hallstatt is a breathtakingly beautiful fairy tale village nestled by a grand lake, it truly is the most amazing setting. The Zauner is located in the main square of Hallstatt only minutes walk from the lake and other points of interest. The restaurant is great and continental breakfast plentiful. The staff were amazingly helpful and the lovely man who checked... More

Hallstadt is a small and charming city, and the old city including the Marktplatz is right on the lake. The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are older and could be cleaner, but it all seemed to be a part of the experience of Hallstadt.

Good location, it's just next to jeti and the landmark Market Square. The hotel is run by family who also run a restaurant, hence the hotel counter is also the restaurant counter. It means the owner may be busy serving restaurant customers, you have to catch him. The hotel is old European style building made of wood, it's a nice... More

We should have shared our experience at Gasthof Zauner with Trip Advisor sooner, and we apologize to those who have had comparable experiences there. Long-time European travellers from Canada, stayed at Zauner's back in 1970s without incident. But this time, we cancelled after the first night (owner offered no apology or compensation) and found another more satisfactory accommodation across the... More
