This was a clean, central hotel with fantastic views from our huge room. Breakfast was included, but we found the staff to be incredibly unpleasant and found out upon checkout that their prices are much higher than advertised and are a flat rate for one person. We had to pay extra because there were two of us.

The room is simple but the view of the lake is great. The location is perfect as it's next to supermarket and above public parking. The hotel provided ticket for free parking too. Still, we expect a bit more from 150 euro per night. (It said 75-89 Euro on the English website. But that's the 2013-2014 price)

The hotel is on the best side of the sea. It is small, but has everything you expect (underground parking, WLAN, free mini bar, breakfast included....etc) and a view which will take your breath. For a brief stay, this is the hotel you should chose. Very good value.

The hotel has one big advantage, its location directly at the lakeside and the resulting stunning view. Other than that, it is solid good quality which would be expected of an Austrian hotel in this price range. Rooms are spacious and clean. Check-in and check-out took some time, but this is more a place to relax than to achieve your... More

My visit to this hotel did not start best way. We had a lot of luggage, but to find from garage to the hotel was not that easy. There was a lady who let us in to the bar on the second try (I got instructions by phone beforehand, but still it was confusing). Room was big and clean, view... More

The rooms are fine, typical Austrian cleanliness and quality. The Internet connection was much better in the rooms than in the breakfast area, which boasts a fabulous water view. The hotel is well located, right on the water. Be SURE to request a water view. The housekeeping service did not change the towels daily, just every other day...so to me... More

Our stay at the Esplanade Gmunden was ok. We certainly liked the location because it is lakefront and close to the tram stop ( about 3mins walk). We booked a deluxe double room with the view of lake Traunsee. The view was definitely worth paying extra for. The room itself was really average and I felt like it could have... More
