My boyfriend and I spent three weeks traveling through Europe and this by far was our favorite place we stayed. Klaus and Isabelle were beyond hospitable. They went out of their way to make sure our stay was enjoyable. We will definitely be staying there again when we go back. The room was immaculate and spacious, but the best part was the breathtaking views. We spent two and a half days in Hallstatt, unfortunately it was raining for a day and a half. However, it was so peaceful at the pension and the view of the lake, even with the rain, was relaxing and comforting. I know it sounds over the top and corny, but I honestly cannot imagine that there is a more tranquil place to stay in Austria.

The hospitality of the owner couple who also manage the property is unparalleled. It starts right from the moment you book from any website (booking.com) and they get the notice by establishing contact for providing directions. He supported us by providing his parking spot
The couple is highly regarded by the town folk. We had a room on top floor with an amazing surreal view of the lake. The hotel is at the lake giving a great view even from the breakfast room of the ducks and swans

You can confidently choose to stay here when you come to Hallstatt

Stayed here with my husband for just over a week in middle of Sept 2013. In all my 33 years of travelling Hallstatt and Haus Sarstein has to be one of the most beautiful and tranquil places to stay. We had room 5 , top floor, with a small balcony, a lovely spacious airy room overlooking the lake. The house was nice and cosy with a fantastic lounge and computer room where you picked up Wifi. The atmosphere was so relaxed it was almost like home from home.

What made Haus Sarstein stand out from everywhere else was KLAUS and ISOBELLE the owners. Klaus and his exceptional local knowledge was invaluable. The weather whilst in Hallstatt was wet at the start of our holiday and as we wanted to trek, Klaus kept in constant contact with the tourist board who informed him of path closures and land slides. He guided us and suggested other routes to follow, giving us detailed maps and highlighting the routes. He was our own personal guide in a way. Whilst in the fantastic setting of the breakfast room watching the ducks and swans swim by Klaus spent time with all his guests and was genuinely interested in what their plans for the day were and giving advice if needed.

The breakfast consisted of cereals, yoghurt, bread and jams and a boiled egg cooked to your liking. There was also a fridge and freezer for guests use if you wanted to buy anything . I bought cheese and ham and made sandwiches to take with us on our treks.

YOU HAVE TO STAY HERE......it is FANTASTIC and we hope to return again.

Thankyou Klaus and Isobelle.

Room Tip: I think all rooms have lake view but just request one anyway

We stayed here for 3 nights during our two week trip to Europe, if given the choice again, we would have stayed here all 2 weeks. Klaus and Isabelle, the owners, were amazing hosts. Every room at Pension Sarstein has a private balcony facing the lake with an incredible view. The rooms themselves were large, clean, quiet and the perfect home base to explore the wonders of Hallstatt and upper Austria.

We loved the huge lawn on the bank of the lake, and spent our afternoons lounging in their chairs, taking in the lake admiring the ducks and swans gently swimming by.

Every morning we were greeted to an incredible sunrise, a lovely/fresh Austrian breakfast, and the always smiling Klaus in his lederhosen and yodeling background music. Klaus gave us great suggestions of where to eat, off-the-beaten-path destinations like Loser mountain, and was extremely welcoming.

Room Tip: All rooms have a balcony facing the lake. We paid for the cheapest room with a double bed and a private bathroom and shower across the way. It worked out well, not worth paying more.

Wonderful hosts, very helpful with hikes, things to do. Bicycles available to use: we rode around Hallstatt to Obertraun for a day trip, wonderful bike trails.
Beautiful pension, large room with balcony, oh what a view! Very clean, shared bathroom.
Delicious breakfast.
Hallstatt is a great town. Lots of outdoor activities, the area is just spectacular.
The train stops across the lake and a ferry takes you across, the ride is beautiful.
A great experience. My husband and I will return here someday (stayed sept 2012).
