I booked this place given the great reviews on Tripadvisor, but will admit with how low the cost was, my wife was convinced it would be a dive. Just the opposite, every bit as good as all the reviews say. Rooms are large and clean, the owners are very attentive and courteous. It does have a little more of a... More

What a wonderful experience it was staying at the Obertrauner Hof. Excellent service, huge room, modern bathroom with skylight, balcony with incredible view, supermarket across the road. Located in Obertraun - the smaller, less touristy, residential village across the lake from overpriced Hallstatt. Easy access to the Five Fingers and Dachstein caves. Took the bus and taxi for our visits... More

Stayed here in May 2105 and absolutely loved the place. Spacious room, brand spanking new shower room, lovely balcony, cold beers in the fridge in reception, superb plentiful breakfast. Trevor & Debbie make the perfect hosts and nothing was too much trouble for them. They even opened up for breakfast an hour early for us on our last day as... More

We were so glad we picked this place. The location is in a quaint little village about 5km out of Hallstatt and is much nicer being away from everyone else. The BnB is large and lovely, the rooms really spacious, bathrooms great, beds super comfortable and warm inside. Waking up to those incredible views in the morning was just fantastic.... More

Obertrauner Hof is a delightful hotel with excellent views of the Alps and it's just far enough away from Hallstatt to feel less touristy. The rooms were quite large and the bathrooms more than adequate. A large breakfast with numerous selections was delicious. Wifi did not work for us. The owners were quite friendly and helpful. A wonderful neighborhood restaurant... More

I was going to give them hotel 4 stars due to the location being a bit further to Hallstatt than I wanted, but the owners more than make up for that. The hotel itself is clean, the rooms are spacious and cozy. The owners, though, are what make you feel at home. If you don't mind the trip to and... More

This turned out to be a great find! A good location and nice facilities are solid. The wifi connection is pretty good and a daily breakfast starts you out on the right track. Games, billiards, a bar, and other seating areas make this a very comfortable place to stay, in and out of the room. It is just minutes walking... More

My son and I spent a couple of days in the Obertraun/Hallstatt area. The decision to stay in Obertraun, rather than touristy, more expensive Hallstatt was a good one for us. There are hiking trails around Obertaun and it is a charming Austrian village. It's an easy boat trip over to Hallstatt. We enjoyed hiking up Mount Dachstein and viewing... More

My wife and I visited a few places in Austria in late September: Vienna, Salzburg, and the Halstadt area. The Obertrauner Hof was our best choice. The room appeared to have a new bathroom. It was large, bright, and spotless. Each floor had a commons area for tea or a glass of wine in the evening. They have a good... More

We stayed here for 3 nights while touring Dachsteinhöhlen & Hallstatt. The hosts are great people, super helpful. The room was large & spotless. There is free WiFi and a great lounge with coffee in the second floor. Excellent value for money. Would definitely stay here again.
