*disclaimer* I did not read the fine print of the hotel clearly enough, and did not see that children under age 7 are not welcome. I was traveling with my 2 children, both under the age of 7. Upon arrival at the hotel, I was greeted by the very unpleasant owner in a somewhat dirty and extremely unorganized and rundown... More

The hotel is in a great location,but the room we had was tiny,with a small high window to the lake and a plastic cubicle style toilet. Breakfast was average. If you want to stay in Obertraun,pick one of the guest houses further up the valley,or splash the difference and stay in Halstatt. Ps,it doesn't have a regular boat shuttle to... More

We drove our car and stayed there for 1 night. The owner couple were very friendly and helpful indeed in spite of he was a bit cool during our check in at the beginning. He did suggest many good place to go like Salt mine , Ice cave and camping on the mountain. I like this hotel as it is... More

Stayed at Haus am See for a night and it was a beautiful experience. The hotel is more like a Bread & Breakfast, but has a beautiful location (by the lake). The owner, Meinrad, was extremely helpful, be it the tips for nearby eating joints or the places to visit. It was at Meinrad's insistence that we ended up going... More

Gorgeous break from the cities. Great location, delightful owners, easy to get to and to the sights without a car. Very helpful in planning your daily adventures, from activities to bus timetables and maps. Probably ate my weight in the delicious breakfast spread each morning sitting by the lake. Wish I had been able to stay longer!

Hotel is renovated and clean. The owner is extremely nice and helpful. The location is on the lake, with most beautiful view. The breakfast is very good and you can watch the lake as you drink your morning coffee. JUST PERFECT. Close to 5 fingers and the other important location. (5 minutes drive),Obertraun is close to Hallstatt. Romantic escape with... More

Meinrad and Katrin (husband and wife) are the sole runners of this place. Wife speaks only German and little English. Most queries are dealt thru Meinrad. We got a room on the top floor with a balcony view of the lake. Basic (no mini-fridge) and super comfy beds. Breakfast consisted of European continental spread and Meinrad provides very detailed info... More

The owners/staff are very unexperienced. During the check in they were speaking very disrespectfully about the Asian couple who checked in before us. Also at breakfast they were unfriendly to other guests. The room we got was tiny and the bathroom was a tiny plastic cell which I have only before seen in a Tokyo airport hotel. The hotel is...

The hotel is located direct to the lake. I stayed on the top floor with the lake view but no balcony. The hotel staff & the owner are nice, friendly and helpful. Room is in a good size and clean. Breakfast is simple. We will definitely stay there again next time.
