I received a warm welcome from Maria to kick start my lovely day in Hallstatt. There's something about Maria that makes you feel comfortable and at home. She was very accommodating to my itinerary and didn't hesitate to offer me an earlier breakfast, though I did not ask for it. The room is neat and clean but you may need to go up some stairs. Hallstatt itself is one of my favorite places and one should really stay here for at least a day to appreciate its charm fully. Haus Trausner was about 15 minutes walk from the main town but if anything, the walk is very pleasant with awesome scenery. Throughout my 2 weeks in Europe, Maria is the best hostess that I encountered, thank you!
