I usually only stay in "brand" name hotels, but this was not an option in the beautiful lakeside and mountain town of Gmunden. Our local friends chose the Schwan Hotel and were we every pleased. Rooms are good with a view of the lake and mountains. But what was very special were the gatherings with our friends and his family... More

I got lucky and had a room with balcony looking out onto the lake. The hotel room was very clean and modern. At first I thought that I had now power in my room, however after I checked with the staff I found out that you had to slide your room key into a holder to activate the power. I... More

Enjoyed a two night stay in Hotel Schwan. The hotel is spotless, my room was very spacious with a beautiful view over the lake and surrounding mountains and the location on the town square couldn't be more central. The food in the restaurant was very good and was also reasonably priced. I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to... More

Has restaurant food at pub prices. Has a great position to sit outside and see the mountains, the lake and the square (Rathausplatz). If you stay over an hour you'll also catch the chimes of the Ceramic Glockenspiel in Gmundner Rathaus on the other side of the square. Downside was the inflexible menu, they wouldn't make a child's serving of... More

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
