The castle has a hotel and a hostel. We stayed at the hotel. The wing we stayed in was recently renovated including our room. Everything in our room was new and first class. My understanding is the hostel is much more basic.
Pros: Hotel is in a castle.
Cons: Hotel restaurant wasn't great, but the restaurant at Hotel Stekl, was gourmet quality.
Good value for the money. Great location. Terrific down pillows & comforters. Friendly staff. DOUBLE CHECK your address if you're traveling with GPS / phone. .. we ended up about three miles away in the middle of nowhere, at night..
Pros: The location is actually in the castle. The pillows and comforters were really nice down. Best we've had in three countries with hotels priced up to roughly ---USD.
Cons: Breakfast was priced on the high side for what was offered and what we'd been experiencing (both in expensive and inexpensive locations).
