This is one of the best hotels in Wachau. Very good location for bike tours. The best thing is the SPA and an open air swimming pool on the roof, from where the panorama is marvelous to the Danube and the hills. The only thing which was not according to our taste is the restaurant. It is not bad and... More

We come to this hotel always while travelling in Wachau. I strongly recommend this hotel - it is situated within the walking distance from Durstein (unesco herritage) and the price is reasonable to compare to the hotels in Durnstein. The family atmosphere, great breakfast buffet, nice swimming pool on the roof, very good sauna area with the view on Donau.... More
