I had a single room, single bed, located next to the alley. Very hot in August, no air, so I had to sleep with the windows open. No need for an alarm clock! The trucks would wake me every day. But, it cost only 286 Euro for 4 nights. It was very clean, but it felt like a college dormitory.... More

after touring the scenic Salzkammergut, the last night at this hotel ! A great value, friendly staff, special request was taken care of (Waterkettle) and an incredible view over the Traunsee. Delicious local food with some extra finesse added to it, a great selection of Austrian Wines. Would have loved to stay a few days longer !

On the way to Budapest from Salzburg, we decided to spend the night here directly on Lake Traunsee framed by mountains for a backdrop. A enchanting place with super spacious accommodations with the feel of traditional Austria. Gmunden is a picturesque town and the whole area denotes peace and tranquility. We woke up to the fog gently lifting off the... More

Pleasant hotel with a great location. Rooms are nice, spacious and clean . Food in the restaurant is fine. Magnificent views over the Traunsee. Easy to walk around the city and to the local points of interest (lakefront, cable car to Grunberg)

Travelling on business, I needed somewhere to stay for the weekend before a Monday appointment. My customer suggested the Seehotel Schwan. It was a fantastic choice. The hotel sits beside a beautiful lake and you can enjoy the view of the snow covered mountains. The town is very quiet...outside of long walks, I didn't do much, but the point was... More

I have been several times in the Seehotel Schwan in Gmunden, and I will go there again for sure. The hotel is directly on the lake Traunsee, in the town centre of Gmunden. It is built on a historic site that dates 500 years back (you can see parts of old wall in the reception), the style is traditional Austrian... More

We had three wonderful nights at the Seehotel Schwan. The room was good size and very clean. We were on the second floor and our room had a balcony overlooking the lake. What a spectacular view. The weather was overcast and rainy but the view of the lake and mountains was wonderful. The lake boats are a very short distance... More

I have stayed at the Schwan many times before. Every year they remodel some of the rooms. This time I got a completely remodeled room. View to the Lake. The room was what you would expect at a high end New Hotel. The dinning room has been re done with new fabrics and curtains. Also very elegant. They got rid... More
