OK - so this is the first time I have used this hotel and the first room I was given was really in need of a lot of maintenance work, broken shower, broken fittings etc etc. Credit to the hotel as they offered me a different room, but unfortunately this was not much better. Neither room as air conditioned, so... More

Excellent hotel. We stayed twice in Greif this August on the way to Bulgaria and back to United Kingdom. It is almost in the middle between Calais and Sofia. The rooms are huge and clean. The breakfast was amazing to. I'll recommend this hotel for families with or without kids.

I arrived at 23.00h very tired, from the moment I was in front of the receptionist it took me maximum 5 minutes to get in the room, so extremely fast service at check-in and also at check-out. Nice breakfast, typically Austrian, historic building, clean, and for a no noise room ask for a room with a parking view, I had... More

We've travelled around Austria by car to see all the marvellous lakes, but it's hard to find a good place around Traunsee or Attersee in the summertime. Wels is nicely placed not very far away from Gmunden and on the way to the Czech Republic, thus we decided to spend a night there. If you're on a similar trip, definitely... More
