    We found the rooms a bit warm but easy to open window. Other than that no problems.

    Very friendly and helpful staff , hotel bought and under new management 6 mths ago. Spotless , comfortable rooms. Location at top end of road to Abbey so short walk to it and shops/ eating places in Melk. A note - if you are driving, address given is on the little one way road walk in only, need to go to road on other side of hotel where is adequate parking- check with hotel prior for directions.

    The air conditioner in our room did not work but since it was Saturday evening we were told that we have to wait till next day for it to be fixed, the staff did not offer other room or any other alternative. Luckily the temperature dropped at night and we were able to sleep with open windows. Unexpected service in 4-stars hotel.

    Can't say this in any other way: the hotel's management are thighs and lairs!!! We made the reservation with booking.com while looking for a suitable room to 3 adults. The only result in the website showed was for a party of 3 was 1 double room and 1 single room. There was not an option for 1 room for 3 adults which was the optimal solution for us. When we checked in to the hotel we were surprised to get one room with double bed and a single bed that was fully prepared for 3 people (including towels etc) and another double room. Our conclusion was that there was an option for a triple room which was not shown in the website. We immediately went back to the reception and returned the key to the supposable single room because we only need one triple room and preferred to stay together in one room (as I mentioned before). The hotel's receptionist said that we are right and they do have triple rooms in the hotel and that they will cancel the spare room. Next morning when we checked out the receptionist told us that booking. com refused to approve the cancellation request while the truth was that the hotel is responsible to accept any cancelation requests and not Booking!!! This was a very disappointing ending to what could be a nice stay

    Very clean, big rooms, free parking, location location

    I can't think of anything.

    It is very convenient in Melk. It was comfortable and warm. Breakfast was good and there is a place for your bicycle. I walked out the front door in the morning and within 5 mins walk I was standing at the doors of Melk Abbey. The Abbey seems to get many busloads of visitors so it was great to be so close and be first in the morning.

    Decent hotel in the center of Melk

    • Stayed 1 night

    bed is a bit small and not very comfortable. Address of the hotel is correct. However, parking access is on another street, so one has to drive around through a semi-restricted zone in order to access it from the initial hotel address. I recommend checking the area on a map before driving there. Parking is really ok once you get there.

    Overall a good hotel, nice rooms, friendly staff, breakfast was decent, clean rooms.

    I would say that towels in the bathroom were low quality, cheaply felt but that was the only complain.

    10 minute slow walk to the Melk Abbey - main attraction of the area. Also, 15 minute of slow walk to the Danube river, where boats cruises are at. Everything was very likable.

    Our room did not have airconditioning, and so got a little stuffy. We had to open the windows to cool the room down. We were there in late September, so it was o.k., but it would be too warm in summer without air conditioning.

    The buffet breakfast was all that we could ask for, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Great value for our money, and great location for visiting the Abbey. Air conditioning should be available however, especially in summer.
