I can't think of anything negative to say about this wonderful Pension. In terms of what really constitutes service, it outshines many five-star hotels I have stayed in. Nothing is too much trouble for Klaus and Isabelle, who justifiably run it with understated and quiet pride. Our top floor room was spacious - big enough to include a table and... More

We had done a day trip to Hallstatt 4 years ago, and were so impressed that we planned to go back and on our recent trip. WE had a good idea of the pensions and hotels and what they had to offer, and chose Sarstein based on our experiences and reviews. We did have a bit of trouble with responses... More

The location of the pension is only 5 min walk from the main square/pier and away from the noise. Hallstatt is not a big place and you could walk from one end to the other in under 30 minutes. The owners are very kind and helpful with explanation on where to go in the town. They even help with the... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in May 2014. We got a bit lost on our drive in, but the owners kindly left us a key to our room with a kind note of information about the place. Traveled with my husband and my sister and stayed in a 2 bedroom room overlooking the lake. Perfectly clean and everything seemed really... More

Excellent view especially in the morning. Good facility, have free wifi, the room and share bathroom are cleanliness. Good hospitality and nice breakfast! Not far from city center and parking. I parked at the free parking, then walked down not so far. If you have a big luggage, they have a small parking area for dropping yours. Then, move to... More

This review is a little late but I couldn't let the opportunity slip to write a review on Pension Sarstein. We were fortunate to stay in the 2 bedroom apartment for a week using this as our base to explore around Hallstatt. We loved it and being from Australia loved our entry into Hallstatt as it has snowed overnight and... More

My boyfriend and I spent three weeks traveling through Europe and this by far was our favorite place we stayed. Klaus and Isabelle were beyond hospitable. They went out of their way to make sure our stay was enjoyable. We will definitely be staying there again when we go back. The room was immaculate and spacious, but the best part... More

The hospitality of the owner couple who also manage the property is unparalleled. It starts right from the moment you book from any website (booking.com) and they get the notice by establishing contact for providing directions. He supported us by providing his parking spot The couple is highly regarded by the town folk. We had a room on top floor... More

Stayed here with my husband for just over a week in middle of Sept 2013. In all my 33 years of travelling Hallstatt and Haus Sarstein has to be one of the most beautiful and tranquil places to stay. We had room 5 , top floor, with a small balcony, a lovely spacious airy room overlooking the lake. The house... More

We stayed here for 3 nights during our two week trip to Europe, if given the choice again, we would have stayed here all 2 weeks. Klaus and Isabelle, the owners, were amazing hosts. Every room at Pension Sarstein has a private balcony facing the lake with an incredible view. The rooms themselves were large, clean, quiet and the perfect... More
