Once the best-known and most expensive hotel in Steyr, this former member of the Romantik Hotel group has fallen from grace a bit. Its setting is still quite lovely, on a bluff looking out over the joining of the two rivers, Enns and Steyr, and the old town beyond; and views from several of the guest rooms and the hotel's dining room, particularly at night, are attractive, but the 'Romantik' atmosphere and affiliation are gone, leaving us with a pleasantly-situated but rather ordinary Austrian hotel.

Public rooms are typical of the countryside with lots of light wood; paneled, painted ceilings; and oriental carpets. There a lift, a lovely terrace overlooking river and old town, sauna, solarium, and gemütlich bar

Guestrooms, while well-equipped and comfortable enough, just didn't quite get our juices flowing.
