super location for town, lake and sightseeing. we were greeted by a very polite and welcoming young gentleman who could not have been more helpful ( same for the young lady at breakfast). don't be put off by the location being close to the main road, it's not an issue, safe parking on site is a bonus. breakfast was good...

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

We spent the night here on our way to Ischgl for a skiing trip. The hotel is conveniently located. Friendly lady at the front desk. The rooms are very very very basic but clean, but the bed is good. 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

Good: Hotel was very clean. The parking on site was great and Free! I didn't notice many hotels in this area with that feature. The hotel is very close to downtown Bregenz and everything is within walking distance. The 2 ladies that run the hotel are very nice and accommodating. Breakfast was an average European continental breakfast. The shower was... More

Stayed here as a stopover and arrived late at night with no booking. Staff was very friendly and helpful, price was right and had parking. Room was comfortable with enough room for sleeping, but not really to unwind in. Breakfast was yummy and overall we enjoyed the ambience. Definitely not a great B&B, but was good.

We us this hotel for a stop on our way to the ski holiday. Nothing fancy, just a nice little place to stay. Owner is very friendly.
