The hotel is on the best side of the sea. It is small, but has everything you expect (underground parking, WLAN, free mini bar, breakfast included....etc) and a view which will take your breath. For a brief stay, this is the hotel you should chose. Very good value.

The hotel has one big advantage, its location directly at the lakeside and the resulting stunning view. Other than that, it is solid good quality which would be expected of an Austrian hotel in this price range. Rooms are spacious and clean. Check-in and check-out took some time, but this is more a place to relax than to achieve your... More

The rooms are fine, typical Austrian cleanliness and quality. The Internet connection was much better in the rooms than in the breakfast area, which boasts a fabulous water view. The hotel is well located, right on the water. Be SURE to request a water view. The housekeeping service did not change the towels daily, just every other day...so to me... More

The key was left on the bar, as hotel was managed from another location cross the lake (so we then discovered). It was... More

Our stay at the Esplanade Gmunden was ok. We certainly liked the location because it is lakefront and close to the tram stop ( about 3mins walk). We booked a deluxe double room with the view of lake Traunsee. The view was definitely worth paying extra for. The room itself was really average and I felt like it could have... More
