First the positives: The junior suite we had booked was newly refurbished to a good standard and the room was very clean. The location in the centre of Melk is excellent for visiting the town and its monastery and for trips in the Wachau region. Less convincing is the overall style of the hotel which cannot quite decide which way... More

We stayed here while transiting towards the Netherlands with our kids. We booked the suite stift melk with view of the monastery. The apartment is very well equipped with a specific decoration and I strongly recommend. The view of the monastery from the apartment window is breathtaking especially at night. We also ate in the evening at the hotel restaurant,... More

Typical rip off tourist restaurant in a great location, in the heart of Melk. Waiting staff surly. Wine so awful it couldn't be drunk. Few menu choices available. All in all overpriced and poor quality.

Hotel Restaurant zur Post is located in the heart of the city of Melk, so it's a great starting point for trips all around the Wachau valley. Hotel is run by 4th generation of one local family, they treat their guests with high care. Design of the rooms combines authentic austrian style with modern equippment (full HD tv's etc.). There's... More

We had the same issue as always when booking with booking.com in that we were given the room at the back, but saying that the room was very nice and the hotel has a lovely restaurant, good service and very centrally located. I would go back there.

This lovely comfortable hotel has a beautiful view of the Abbey on the hilltop and offers a delicious breakfast. The hosts certainly make you feel at home! If you're UP for it, the walk to the Abbey is enjoyable (but keep in mind that you'll be walking UP to the Abbey)! After a day spent visiting the Abbey we had... More

On my pleasant visit to Melk, I had the misfortune to choice this restaurant to have lunch. My wife ordered wiener schnitzel. What was served was a fatty piece of chicken skin soaked in cooking oil. There wasn't any meet, just fatty skin. When I call the manager to complain, he offered me free coffee, but didn't take the wiener... More

Very quaint little place - lovely location right at the foot of the Abbey and friendly staff. The breakfast is quite a spread and include in the price of the room. The rooms are nice but no fans so we were forced to upgrade to a room with AC since the weather was extremely warm . Also too many mosquitoes... More

It is difficult to find negatives when staying at Hotel zur Post. We stayed for 5 nights and enjoyed every one of them. Check-in was swift and friendly. Our room was larger than most European hotel rooms that we stayed in during our 20 day/5 country European vacation and it had a beautiful view of the Stift. The service by... More
