Open water, steep mountains and a pretty little town with buildings that belong in a fairytale, it’s easy to see why hotel stays in Hallstatt, Austria are so sought after. The karst outcrops of Hoher Dachstein mountain provide one of the finest backdrops in the Alps and Hallstatt is believed to have seen human inhabitation since the Bronze Age. Understandably this has attracted the interest of UNESCO, who bequeathed World Heritage Status upon it in 1997, further increasing the small town’s popularity.

Please bear in mind that Hallstatt’s hotels can get booked up well in advance owing to the town’s enduring popularity. For this reason, as well as the overcrowding that prevails during the peak season, it’s well worth considering a visit during the shoulder seasons (Spring and Autumn outside of school holidays) if possible. Whenever you plan to arrive, it’s important to ensure you have the best base from which to explore, which is why we’ve compiled this list of the best five hotels in Hallstatt based on multiple factors such as location, value for money and amenities.
