Nice roomy modern room with a view to Traunsee(the lake). Breakfast was excellent and plentiful, also with a view of the lake. We also had our evening meal there and we would thoroughly recommend that you dine there too. It was excellent.

Had a room with a balcony that looked over the lake. Wonderful to step out and view the lake. At night, wonderful to hear the water lapping the shore. Friendly staff. You can ask for ice in your room and a bucket will be delivered. Since the room is not really air conditioned, on a warm day an iced drink...

Besides the perfect location on the main square of Gmunden, Hotel Schwan provides an old fashioned, historic hotel with a spin: The rooms are modern, of highest standard and newly renovated. The house has a great history, and the restaurant is highly recommended. We spent to great nights in a room with lake view, great breakfast and jungle shower. It...

I stayed for three nights and I must say that the room was excellent. The view of the lake was stunning. Difficult to find, as street construction made it difficult to navigate, however, staff, while small, were very attentive to my needs. Very good breakfast each morning. this is true Austrian living and lifestyle

I usually only stay in "brand" name hotels, but this was not an option in the beautiful lakeside and mountain town of Gmunden. Our local friends chose the Schwan Hotel and were we every pleased. Rooms are good with a view of the lake and mountains. But what was very special were the gatherings with our friends and his family...

I got lucky and had a room with balcony looking out onto the lake. The hotel room was very clean and modern. At first I thought that I had now power in my room, however after I checked with the staff I found out that you had to slide your room key into a holder to activate the power. I...

Enjoyed a two night stay in Hotel Schwan. The hotel is spotless, my room was very spacious with a beautiful view over the lake and surrounding mountains and the location on the town square couldn't be more central. The food in the restaurant was very good and was also reasonably priced. I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to...

Has restaurant food at pub prices. Has a great position to sit outside and see the mountains, the lake and the square (Rathausplatz). If you stay over an hour you'll also catch the chimes of the Ceramic Glockenspiel in Gmundner Rathaus on the other side of the square. Downside was the inflexible menu, they wouldn't make a child's serving of...

I had a single room, single bed, located next to the alley. Very hot in August, no air, so I had to sleep with the windows open. No need for an alarm clock! The trucks would wake me every day. But, it cost only 286 Euro for 4 nights. It was very clean, but it felt like a college dormitory....
