Little touches like afternoon coffee and cake make this small, family-owned hotel across the river from the Altstadt an inviting choice. Some of the guest rooms include attractive sitting areas, and the hotel boasts a simple but well appointed spa. Those on a romantic getaway may appreciate the two "lovers" suites, designed like sets for Mozart's The Magic Flute. Rooms in the back look out over the looming Gaisberg and the cemetery of St. Sebastian. The staff is
warm and helpful. Note: this hotel is divided between houses opposite each other: the main Altstadthotel (no air conditioning) and the recently renovated Residenz (all with air conditioning).
