Fodor's Review

The oldest inn in Krems, which for almost 140 years was a mail-route post house, is centered on an adorable Renaissance-style courtyard topped with a flower-bedecked arcaded balcony and storybook mansard roof. If you're a guest here, you're allowed to drive into the pedestrian zone of the Old Town and pull up next to the Steinener Tor (Stone Gate) to reach the inn. Rooms are comfortable and interiors are country-style pleasant, but the real draw here is dining on regional specialties or sipping a glass of the local wine in the courtyard. Cyclists are welcome, and the staff is very friendly. The Brunner family has operated the inn since 1921, just four years after it ceased being a postal station.
