If you don't pay up extra but choose the somewhat cheaper rooms (which are still rather expensive) you get dumped in the old tract where rooms are darkish, smelly and a bit scabby---don't know about the other ones ("Genießerzimmer").
Most of the place looks onto the heavy-traffic Wachau road though some trees fence you off a little.
I rented an e-bike and had an serious accident (no information had been given about extremely powerful brakes by the hotel staff!) that put me into emergency, and their main reaction to my family who stayed on for another night was to [--] about the scratched bicycle. Two months later Ms. Pfeffel sent me bill for a "service visit" by their repair shop (€171) without much comment.
Well, they certainly won't see us again...
