Nice location but poor and simple breakfast”
It is very close to the tram stop from the railway station
This hotel is clean and comfortable.
The location is very good. If someone get to Gmunden by train, he/she can use take tram at the front of the station to the village by Traunsee.
If you get off the tram at Franz Josef Platz, the last stop. At the opposite side there is the hotel.
Hotel Esplanade has kind staffs and comfortable restaurant with very nice view over the Traunsee. The restaurant is on the 1st floor.
But breakfast is not rich even though the villagers seemed they enjoyed it.
I think Foreigners can feel the breakfast so poor and simple.
