This is a traditional German hotel with lots of history, just a 5 minute walk from the railway station. The staff on reception were very friendly and efficient. Our room, which faced the square, was fairly basically furnished but was comfortable and had a nice view. Breakfast was one of the best buffets we have had in Germany - lots... More

The Hotel Barbarossa is a moderately priced but attractive and comfortable hotel right in the heart of Konstanz. it is easy strolling distance from good restaurants, historical attractions, and the harbor where boats await to take one to any corner of the Bodensee--Meersburg, Mainau (the Flower Island), or other destinations around the lake. I biked from the hotel to the... More

We stayed in a room to the back--no street noise, no disturbing lights or activities during the night--so it was a peaceful, restful abode for our two nights. Breakfasts were nicely presented and certainly met the standard of continental hotels. Wifi was unproblematical and the TV worked fine. We appreciated the technical solution to an odd room shape--the flatscreen TV... More

This was our first stay at the Barbarossa although I have eaten there before. It is a lovely, family-run hotel with personal service and cordial attentiveness to guests' needs. The location is outstanding - in the pedestrian zone but accessible by car, and steps from the beauties of Konstanz as a city of history and culture. Despite the building's age... More

Stayed there during a workshop in December - seems to be a favorite hotel for the University to book for visiting academics / conferences / etc. The location is fabulous, in the middle of the medieval quarter, right at the end of the main market street. Everything in town (restaurants, bars etc.) except the university is a stone's throw away... More

This beautiful hotel in the picturesque town of Konstanz was the venue for a close friends wedding. It was possibly the most graceful and yet relaxed wedding event i have ever been to, and I feel this was very much supported by the hotel team, who were amazing! The same team looked after us throughout the celebrations. They thought of... More

I stayed at this location for one night visiting the local university. My room was not large, but had all comforts needed and was very clean. Location is very central, only about 500m from the train station. The area is very silent at night, i.e., good sleep and the rooms are very clean. The building is very old (but renovated!)... More

Stayed for 2 nights. Young couple with a baby. Location is perfect. We did not need any service from the reception, but they were friendly. Breakfast was ok-ish, but not perfect and we had to wait for quite sometime for the eggs. Room was clean but very small, even though we upgraded. Overall good experience and good value for the...

This hotel is located in the center of Konstanz. The rooms are comfortable . The hotel has an elevator. The front desk speaks English. There is a good restaurant at the hotel with a nice outdoors dining area.
