Bergfried Gasthof
Ranked #5 of 16 Hallstatt B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 9, 2012

Hallstatt is an incredibly beautiful place with lots to see and do but this hotel was very average. The people working here were hard-working, friendly and helpful. The location of the hotel is easy to access by car and is right at the end of the main pedestrian area of Hallstatt. The spacious rooms are looking very tired and the beds were not very comfortable. Lumpy matresses at best. The balcony of our room was in desperate need of repair. Breakfast was good. Would we stay there again? ..... Nope.

The Bergfried Gasthof is an great place to say for exploring Hallstatt. The hotel is located right off the main road, has a large/free parking lot and is only a very short walk to the center of Hallstatt. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the view from our balcony was tremendous.

Breakfast consists of basic rolls, bread, juice and coffee, nothing exciting, but enough to get you going in the morning. The best thing about the Bergfried Gastof is its location, and the price. This place might be the best bargain in the Hallstatt area. When we return to Hallstatt, we will defiantly stay at the Bergfreid Gastof again.

Room Tip: We had 5 adults in our group and stayed in the 3 bedroom apartment. Other than the three flights of...

We stayed for five nights in Bergfried Gasthof. Functional, but very comfortable and ideally located close to the heart of Hallstatt. and also to the main routes out of town. The owner was welcoming, friendly and jovial as were his very hard working family whom we met during our stay. We arrived during mid-evening and reception was not manned - but they had left us a note pointing us to our room and saying we could check in next morning.
Our room was furnished with an armchair, sofa, double bed (which was very comfortable) table, TV and plenty of storage space. Being on a corner we had two outside balconies with table and chairs and with excellent views. Perhaps the only criticism is that the bath towels were relatively small and a shower rather than a bath would have suited me better There was car parking for all guests - a bonus when so close to Hallstatt.
Continental breakfast was more than adequate and the one evening meal we had was excellent - a good choice of traditional Austrian food. There was a drinks machine.
We felt immediate relaxation and peace in the evening in this lovely location.

You can't really complain about a room with breakfast for 40 euros a night, especially if it's clean and reasonably comfortable, as it is here. The breakfast is quite good - fresh rolls, jam and coffee.

The only sour note was the 'welcome' that I received from the owner. The reception desk was unattended, and when I was about to walk away, an old lady told me to follow her upstairs. This I did, to be left standing in a dark corridor for five minutes or so. Then the owner emerged, rather irate, ticking me off for not having rung the bell at reception. Unfortunately this is often the way in Austria: the person providing the service has rules which you're expected to follow, or else.
