  • Family with children

    EVERYTHING! It was a magical place with a phenomenally accommodating staff who attended to our every need. I had visited in July on the occasion of a romantic weekend and came back with my parents and sister, along with our significant others, and the experience was tremendous. I would recommend it very highly as a weekend or vacation destination to anyone travelling within an hour of Vienna. We celebrated my father's birthday at the hotel and they made special arrangements to make the event all that more special. Also, the breakfast is so fresh, delicious and wonderfully prepared.

    Nothing - everything was perfect.

  • Older travelers

    Good location. Beautiful lobby.

    I don' t no why so many people have positive impression on that hotel. Staffs are not so friendly, taste of the room is old-fashined and not so beautiful. I do not belive it is 5 star hotel. The price does not meet the quality of the hotel.

  • Older travelers

    The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. The food was excellent.

    We stayed in a very attractive room--plenty of storage and a comfortable bathroom with heated floors. The mattress, however, was one of the hardest I've ever slept on in my life. I awoke many times during the two nights we stayed there because I was so uncomfortable. A pity, because all else about the hotel was lovely.

  • Older travelers

    We wanted to get away for a few days after a stressful time, and Hotel Schloss Durnstein was perfect. The ambience, views from the terrace and our room, and indoor swimming pool, the town and opportunities for hiking were just what we needed. I look forward to returning. Thank you!

    Everything was wonderful! My one area which could improve-- the quality of the dinners were good, but could improve.The ambience of sitting on the terrace overlooking the Danube unforgetable.

  • Family with children

    The hotel was right in the middle of everything you could do in the valley.

  • Family with children

    Probably my best hotel experience ever (I travel about 15 % of my time and have done so for several years - I have lived in four countries and visited more than 50, so I have seen my share of hotels). The location is fantastic, service is great, the place is extremely tasteful - nothing like the bland, uniform mass of business hotels around the world. It is comparable to the Portuguese Pousadas in tastefulness and charm, but more lively, less museum-like than those, and with better cuisine. In a country with such poor culinary traditions as Austria, the fish dishes at Schloss Dürnstein were a delightful surprise - they seemingly have a very talented fish cook, who prepares delicate, modern, light and creative fish dishes. The meat dishes were still on the heavy, Austrian side, though.

    The meat dishes in the restaurant were a bit on the heavy, traditional, Austrian side (as opposed to the fish dishes, which were up to high international standards).

  • Couple

    It was a wonderful location for a honeymoon. We enjoyed all aspects of Hotel Schloss Durnstein. Romantic, quiet, peaceful and relaxing.

    The bed, it would have been good to of had one mattress as the bed not separate mattresses together.

  • Older travelers

    absolutely oustanding in every repect, location, facilities, service, restaurant and i could go on

    nothing that you could dislike. this family run hotel sets oustanding standards and consistently outperforms them

  • Couple

    The location is perfect and the hotel is very beautiful!!

    The rooms are very stuffy in the summmer and doesn't have air conditioner . The pillows are not comfortable, it was difficult to sleep with them..

  • Family with children

    the location is good the restaurant was very nice food delicious .

    but the front desk staff are not helpfull at all and the rooms were very low quality,does not project 5 * hotel features, no fans or ac's in the room so if it is too hot too bad. arrived from long distance flight before 3:00 o'clock and we were refused to be given the room .we had to wait at the lobby until 3:00. because of all above we cut our stay from 4nights to 2 and we were charged more than 20% of total cancellation fees. In summary it was not a pleasant experience.

  • Older travelers

    The hotel is lovely, the people are very professional but friendly and helpful. The terrace overlooking the Danube is superb! The food was very good, especially the breakfast.

    We had great difficulty with the heat! There is no ac in the room and only one relatively small window. Between the heat and the light iluminating the castle, sleeping was very difficult.

  • Older travelers

    Very pretty location and nice decor. Good restaurant. Indoor and outdoor pools although we didn't use them. Staff spoke good English.

    We did not think it rated five stars. The room was quite small with a tiny TV. Although they said all rooms had wireless internet we could not receive it in our room. Only one very flat pillow each but they provided extras when asked. There was no shower - only a bath with a shower hose you had to hold in your hand. There was a library/lounge room for guests, but while we were there three chain-smoking guests seem to have taken up residence in this room, so the air was thick with cigarette smoke which also pervaded the other spaces including the entrance lobby.

  • Older travelers

    Excellent location, best views of the Danube, quite charming

    No air conditioning! Incredible for the price paid. I will not consider it in the future.

  • Couple

    Everything was very good. Excellent location, spacious comfortable room, good service, a gourmet restaurant.

  • Older travelers

    Fantastic view of the Danube from the restaurant with excellent value for the 1/2 board package

    Our room shower was very european and room window would benefit from a screen
