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

The bathroom had a bath with shower cubicle and hand basin and a separate loo. There was also a balcony with... 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

We stayed at Seehotel Schwan for one night in September and had a room with a balcony overlooking the lake. The view from our room was just amazing! The room itself is spacious and beautiful with great character finishes such as a wonderful chandelier and wood sculpted head board. The bathroom was big and modern, and the bed was very... More

We stayed three nights in September in a room with a balcony. The location is terrific, in the town square and on the water front, so access to boat trips is easy. Also it's near the esplanade for walks to a small castle and near the river walk (Traun River, I think), The location is traffic free, so nights are... More

This was a great hotel for our family to enjoy the area. In addition to the great location, we were all comfortable in the hotel and appreciated the good service. We were with our 2 young children and the staff did a nice job at making them feel comfortable and welcome. They also were quick to respond to our requests... More

I stayed here one night mid-July on a fishing trip. Nice old hotel in a perfect location on Gmunden's lovely main square, looking out to the beautiful lake & mountains. Decent room. free parking & Wi-fi, great breakfast. There are many good outdoor restaurants lining the nearby promenade along the lake. All for $75 Euros. A great find.
