I stayed at the hotel for one night on a business trip last week. The room in the historic building was freshly renovated and provided a cosy atmosphere. The check in/out staff as well as the breakfast waiters were extremely friendly. The entire estate is very charming. The bar was only partially refurbished but I didn't bother as the cake... More

If my mother hadn't spoken German we would have never known you could stay here from the website (I think it's being updated as we speak), but so glad that we did.

The extra cost of the main palace rooms is worth every Euro. The view is remarkable from the top floor facing the lake. Sound of music scene. Minimal staff visible. You feel like you own the place. Feel free to explore. There are many hidden rooms and conversation (this is a place used for diplomacy and leadership seminars) nooks. While... More

My husband and I stayed here in December to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. The Schloss Leopoldskron was everything we had dreamed about and more! We stayed in the Max Reinhardt suite and it took our breath away. The suite was extremely spacious---a grand living room/dining room, bedroom, kitchette, bathroom, and foyer. The views were stunning! I could have just... More

Did you ever imagine to stay in a real historical building with modern comfort? You must stay here. 5 year daughter was excited by all old furniture, lights etc. We investigated every place, except rooms and suites.

The Schloss is a wonderful place surrounded by amazing scenery. While the rooms were somewhat tired and dated, the interior of the building itself is exquisite. The staff was also helpful and frendly.
