We had a great stay at the Gasthof Goldener Stern. We liked our bright orange room, romantic, comfortable and relaxed. To view Melk abbey from the window was surreal. The location is super convenient and idyllic. The owners were very prompt in their email communication, and we were surprised to find they are a bit snippy in person, but I...

We, as several others here, stayed in the Empress Elisabeth expanded room. The room is described in other reviews, so I won't duplicate those efforts except to say that there is some flexibility in one of the beds, which can be made into a sofa if you don't need the extra sleeping space. Our family — two adults and two...

We only stayed here for one night. Three of us had two rooms.When we started out the owner was a bit snippy but became more friendly. We were in Europe for a month and this is the only room that we were glad to leave. The romantic décor consisted of silk red roses spread all over the room. It was...

This B&B is conveniently located within easy walking distance of the Abbey. It is however very quirky in that there is an overabundance of "stuff", so if you have no problem with clutter then this place is OK. The rooms are adequate in size, but bathroom European small. There is neither shampoo nor conditioner in the shower. Breakfast was good...

Bright orange room and a chef with beads in his beard may not be everybody's choice but the cheerful and relaxed (not speedy) service overcomes one's wariness of the teddy bear decor. Early morning monastery bells affect all of Melk. Food was good - breakfast was excellent and plentiful. Very good value and a real 'experience' away from bland hotels.

Quaint original building from 1736 with beautiful individual decor. We had a room with separate bathroom which meant it was cheap. The room was lovely in a quirky way. Really enjoyed our stay and had one of the best nights sleep. It felt very friendly and safe. Owners were friendly and obviously valued the history of their building. Breakfast was...

We had a great stay at the Gasthof Goldener Stern. They were very accommodating and were very friendly and prompt in their email communication. The location is super convenient and idyllic. Our room had a beautiful balcony where we enjoyed a view of the town. Yes, the owners are a bit snippy in person (seems like other reviewers agree) but...

This hotel is in a great location in the charming little town of Melk, and its historic significance makes it a special place. When we walked into the hallway, I was immediately struck by the quirkiness of the place, but then, that just adds to its charm. We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. This is how our stay there...
