This is a cozy family hotel at the end of Seestrasse, that is more like a boarding house with a private bathroom than a "Hotel". Ringing the doorbell at the locked entrance in the back, brings Max and Penny who greeted us warmly, looked up our name on a sheet of paper then picked our key out of a bowl... More

Fabulous location, terrific service, family atmosphere - although the beautifully set sit-down breakfast is a bit thin behind the war, personal service. 15 Euros for a couple of slices of cold cut, cheese and an egg seem a bit steep, if low compared to a larger, more commercial hotel. And yet, the collection of hand-killed animals in the hallways, a... More

We arrived a little late (7pm) and was shown to our room which had a lovely room overlooking the lake. Since we were hungry we asked for recommendations for dinner and was told to walk 5 minutes to the left or 10 minutes to the right. Neither seem appropriate for what we were looking for so we continued further into... More

Made a reservation as we were on an interrailtrip in southern Germany/ Switzerland. Konstanz is always nice and the city is beautifully located and this hotel located on the northern shore of lake Constance seemed just right . To make it short : Location is great , but thehouse is crying for some maintenance ranging from new paint outside ,... More

Yes, Konstanz is a most beautiful city which combines stunning setting in between the lake and the mountains with a charming, completely undestroyed medieval architecture. Most houses in the city have been built in between the 14th and 16th century and are in perfect shape. And, no, Konstanz is not cheap. Nor is Villa Barleben. However, in the grand scheme... More

The historic home is absolutely beautiful and decorated well. The large private lot right on the lake is the perfect location because it is relaxing while still being less than a ten minute walk from the center of town for all of your shopping and historic tourism desires. The rooms were very large with a nice view of the lake... More

We stayed here for two nights at the end of May 2012 as part of a 2 week tour of Southern Germany. Our corner room was large and offered a view of of the lovely garden and the lake.

As the name suggests, this villa on the ocean is a beautiful, relaxing place to sleep. The helpful and friendly hotel staff leave at 9:00 every night, and return in the morning in time to make a lavish, warm breakfast, which is a fabulous send-off for the day. Many rooms had views of the water, and we encountered no problems... More

We spent one night at the Villa Barleben in late October 2010 after reading the positive comments made by previous visitors and the place is exactly as described: very unusual, quiet, with very nice staff, etc. The personnel was very patient with my rusty German and always attentive during our stay. When we arrived (2 pm) they apologised that our... More

Driving around beautiful Konstanz looking for accommodation led us to this gem. Fortunately a room was available. The hotel is housed in a gracious villa with a small number of rooms which suits our style. It is on the lake and surrounded by a wonderful garden. The decor of the spacious rooms is simple elegance. The entry and guests lounge... More
