The parking situation was not great. You have to drive up to the general vicinity of the building and unload quickly, then drive back down and find parking in one of 3 local lots. None are close to the property. I got the last spot in one of the lots - I'm not sure what the options would be if no spots were available. Finding the property was a little tricky - if you go into the town, take a left up the hill right in front of the Wieser shop selling schnapps, go up a bit, and take the narrow path on the left to find the building.
If you have young children, the stairs in the apartment and yard are very precarious. There is only one bathroom in Apartment 3, so if you have 7 people, you really have to schedule the showers. There is no tub and shower is open, so little ones will basically drench the entire bathroom. The bedroom by the front door has a window right on the street level, so if security is a concern, you can't leave it open while you sleep. The floor on the main level is buckled, which makes for a lot of wobbling. We only stayed one night and had to pay a 20 Euro penalty.
This property was a unique and fun place to stay. The property is an historic home that has been renovated and split into 3 apartments. There are shared outdoor facilities, including a wine cellar with a big wooden table, a grill and patio area, and a sauna and hot tub up a steep embankment in the back yard. The views are amazing if you're willing to navigate the stone steps up to the top.
We stayed in Apartment 3 and had 7 people ranging in age from 70 to 6. Everyone was able to sleep comfortably. The towels were plentiful and were nice and fluffy. The kitchen was well equipped. The town of Durnstein was charming and beautiful. There was a grocery store (Nah und Frisch) a short walk down the hill outside the old city walls and a bakery very close on the main street. A nice plate of fruit was left on the table for us, and the coffee was plentiful and complimentary. Wine bottles were available for purchase in the room. The teens in our group had a great time exploring the building and walking up to the castle. We picked up our key at the Schloss Hotel nearby and the people behind the desk were friendly. A parking pass was left on the table and an informative binder was on the desk.
