This hotel is clean and well located being very close to both the town centre and the Bodensee. The staff were very helpful and the parking was useful although not many spaces. However, the rooms could do with some serious updating. On the plus side the room and bathroom were spotless but the room itself was pretty basic. We had... More

Excellent location in the centre of Bregenz, 10 mins from Festspielhaus and excellent value for money. The room was clean and comfortable with an end your bathroom and lovely shower. The buffet breakfast was a fresh range of breads, meats and cheeses, fruit and muesli and ran until a civilised time in the morning! Very friendly staff. Excellent all round.

Excellent location in town. Close to the lake, station and all the shops and bars. On-site parking came in handy and breakfast, simple and ideal. Rooms are basic but quiet considering their proximity to a major route. I've worked in Bregenz for several years and feel cross that I haven't booked in before! A very pleasant stay.

We stayed here four nights in July. Very close to the lake and various sights around Bregenz. Free parking. Service was excellent and friendly without being cloying. We would definitely stay there again.

We were "walk-ins", arriving on a Sunday morning. The owner allowed us to leave our luggage. This Hotel is very clean, beds were good and the owner was more than accommodating for our needs. The breakfast was very well laid out and delightfully European. This is no 5 star but our stay was very pleasant.

Small privately owned hotel with rooms typical for this kind of hotels, stylized as rural Austian. Brekfast was great, could say that even better than in big hotels. Staff speaks almost no English (that is understandable, since it's Austia), Owner speaks English and really kind and helpful. Price is a bit expensive for the small hotel in small city, but... More

Clean shower, but there was no more soap in the soap dispenser in the shower. However, there was soap above the... More

This is a hotel which claims 3 stairs accommodation, I truly do not understand why. Rooms are absolutely basic and lacking any character, the noise from the street does not allow to sleep. It looks more like a hostel. Located in the middle of town, on the cross of two busy streets, in an old building which was not designed... More

I had a short overnight stay at this conveniently located pension in the city centre, walking distance to both the Main Rail Station and the Opera stage on the Lake (Seebuehne). Located in an old typical renovated three (or four) story building without an elevator, my basic room had a nice comfortable bed; a small writing desk, an old-fashioned TV... More
