“Excellent restaurant, nice small hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2011

This nice hotel with modern rooms and parking is located at 20-25 min walking to the old center.
Room was clean but without any extra- no shampoo, ...
Breakfast was very good
BUT the dinner was delightful, the best dinner we had in Austria!!!

We recently spent one night at the Hotel Wachau. We had trouble finding it a bit and finding our way out the next morning. The rooms were well appointed but slightly dated. They did have a lot of nice extras in the rooms and comfortable beds. The restaurant is excellent! We made reservations for dinner ahead of time since it was a holiday weekend and we are glad we did. It was very busy but the food was great. Breakfast is wonderful too. They specialize in serving foods and wines from the Wachau Valley.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2008

We were driving along the Romantic Road toward Melk, and I called several hotels there to check on the availability & price of a quad room. This hotel offered the most reasonable rate. Our room was perfectly comfortable... one double bed and two twin beds for our young kids. We had dinner in the restaurant. My daughter particularly enjoyed her plate-sized Schnitzel. Then my husband took advantage of the hotel's steam room and sauna. Breakfast the next morning was good too. From the hotel, it was a mere few steps to the path leading up to the Abbey. Overall a good stay.

This hotel is on the north bank of the Danube and the abbey at Melk could be seen obliquely from our room. It is too far out of Melk to walk but parking at the immense and splendid abbey is easy. The hotel is small and clean and very friendly. It has a restaurant which serves hearty local fare and a large terrace for outside eating and drinking. The rooms are a good size and modern although the beds not top notch. A really good breakfast.
Staff all very friendly
