If you don´t find a place to stay in Hallstatt, this hotel can be an option, is not very far from Hallstatt by car. The prices for a room, are rather high, like most hotels in Austria or Germany. Our room was rather small, the furniture very old, the doors were ancient almost, the bathroom was new and that was a plus - come with your own shower gel, there is none, you receive a tiny soap. The really bad part was the strong smell of cigarette, although the room was for non smokers. Unfortunately only the guests obey this rule, from what I have seen. The owners, normally very polite people, smoke a lot, everywhere. The breakfast is not so diversified.
Very nice location near Gosausee. Hotel itself was clean and the bathroom had been modernized with a large shower. Nice balcony. The bedroom furnishings were dated, needed a facelift. Would have been fine if not for the smell of smoke throughout the building.
Such a lovely place. The rooms are nice, clean and tidy. The showers are excellent. The manager is the nicest lady we've ever met.
The room and the balcony boast a lovely country view.
The restaurant itself is very decent, we had dinner and breakfast and enjoyed them both. It seems like at the evening all the folks from the area come there to eat and the atmosphere is great.
It's just a couple of minutes drive from the wonderful Gosau lake, Definitely the surprising gem of our trip. An unfamous paradise.
We have stayed here several times over the last few years. It has always been very good. The rooms are not fancy but very comfortable. They are very typical for an Austrian / German gashof.
We ate and drank in the restaurant for all meals. The breakfast, lunch and dinner were all very nice. They go out of their way to make sure you get what you want. We mostly ate the meal of the day and it was wonderful everytime.
There is a nice sitting room to have drinks and wind down the day. Great location!
Internet works great in the sitting room. Not so great in the bed rooms.
Rooms did not have a fridge, but we were there in the winter and just put the baby's milk out side on the balcony.
Would like to go back when there is no snow on the ground and its warm.
The hotel has a nearly perfect location, only about 3 minutes by car to Gosausee. The room we got was OK, we were unfortunate though ang got a room with windows opening to the road. The bathroom should certainly be renovated as the shower is in a not so good shape... Breakfast was all right, coffee good, choice of bread and suff OK as well. Why do I still say it was disappointing? Because I have been to many places in Austria, especially among the mountains but here at Gosauschmied the usual charm is missing. The owners were nice in words but not in body language - I did not feel the kindness that I felt everywhere else. Somehow it feels more industrial without a heart. I really also have to mention that smoking is still allowed in the common rooms and it smells terrible. In fact all corridors smell like an ash tray and you can also feel it in the room. We did regret a bit having chosen this hotel and we will not return.
