My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights as we were visiting the wine district. There are no air conditioned rooms in the hotel which meant we needed to have our window open in the evening and to sleep. This hotel is VERY close to the main road and one can hear the trucks and cars going by constantly as well as the barges travelling up the Danube. Food in restaurant is priced as high as the Schloss Castle/Restaurant but quality not as good.

Dear Mrs Christine,
thank you for taking the time, to visit and rate our hotel.
Our hotel offers the new room categories Smaragd, Genießerzimmer and Himmelsstiege as well as the Federspiel-rooms in the old part of the hotel. The hotel-information offers our guests descriptions of each room category. You have chosen the ancient part. The new part rooms are 40-50m², with bath room and separate toilet, ceiling cooling system (economic air condition) and a sun balcony overlooking the Danube. The ancient rooms are constructional from the 70ies. Therefore this room category is cheaper than the ones in the new part of our house. In both rooms included is the infrastructure of the hotel like the penthouse.SPA, breakfast buffet and parking place.
This year's summer was one of the warmest and longest in the history of the Wachau valley. Our new part of the hotel is provided with an air heat pump system, which is no air condition, but a ceiling cooling system - so the inside temperature is approx. 9 degrees cooler than the outside temperature. As the room description is saying, the ancient part does not have a cooling system.
The Wachau valley is known worldwide, therefore visited very well during the day, nevertheless in our region you will not find hotspots in the night or nightlife activities.
We wish you all the best and remain
with the best regards
Family Pfeffel & team
