I stayed in the Hotel Haus am See from Oct. 19 to Oct. 21. I was given room #2 before being moved to room #3 to accomodate a group coming in the next day. My room was a double with a private shower/toilet, tv, closet and a balcony overlooking the outdoor patio and with a fantastic view of Lake Hallstatt.
The bed was very comfortable. The shower had a good strong water pressure but it took a few mins. to get hot water but it is no big inconvenience to have to wait a little bit.
The hotel has internet available to guests, but at the rate (as of Oct. 2007) of 1euro/10mins.
Entering the hotel, you will most likely be greeted by a large white husky and either the owner Candida Weinfurtner or her daughter.
In the hallway next to the front desk are timetables for the trains and ferry across the lake to Hallstatt.
The breakfast in the restaurant is typical fare (hardboiled eggs, meats, cereal, coffee, breads...) and fills you up nicely for a day of exploring.
Haus am See is a very nice hotel to stay in. The location is fantastic, the owners are very welcoming and the food is very good.
Unique Quality: Right on lake, internet, sauna
