Unfortunately at 35c outside and no aircon inside this was quite an unpleasant stay. The main building bedrooms have no aircon but their other building does, best to ask for a lake view. The breakfast was fine, the Internet ok but unfortunately the room was extremely uncomfortable due to the heat.

We stayed here as part of a cycling holiday and found it perfectly good for a one night stay. Being a Best Western hotel, this was always going to be a bit bland and corporate but our room was a reasonable size and very clean and the staff were helpful. The breakfast was surprisingly high quality. The hotel is very... More

Nice, pretty large renovated rooms, very good location, about 50 meters to the lake. Overall good breakfast buffet, loads of choices. The staff at the check-in was nice. We reserved 1 double room and one larger room with an extra-bed, which was missing. We received a complimentary single room to make that error up. Can recommend the hotel.

The main problem with this hotel, was that it doesn`t feel like 4 stars. You expect something special from it, that`s why you pay extra money. Although it is not very expensive, could be better. However, the location is great. 5mins to Zeppelin museum, 15mins to railstation, and just 30 seconds to beautiful promenade - all on foot. The restaurant... More

Did not strike me as a four-star luxury hotel at all. The room was fine, as was breakfast. However our room was off in an annexe - which is the kind of thing they usually tell you before you arrive. We were checked into a room which was already occupied, before being moved. The housekeeping seemed a bit haphazard. Not... More

Fresh and modern room in one of the added buildings to the hotel. Breakfast is served in the lovely hotel restaurant that also offer Michelin quality lunch and dinner. Make sure to get a table one evening in the restaurant. Theirs local fish plate is amazing and their soups are sent from soup heaven.

I wasn't expecting a lot from a Chain hotel in Europe but was pleasantly surprised. The reception and restaurant are in a separate building - I was slightly concerned when the gentleman on reception led us across the street and into a small corridor. I then managed to set the alarm off in the tiny lift with my bag but... More

The beautiful city of Friedrichshafen on the northern shoreline of lake Bodensee has many attractions. The city of Friedrichshafen with only 58.000 inhabitans can boast of a most pleasant and soft rebuilding after utter destruction during ww2. The streets of Friedrichshafen follow the century old patterns and the low skyline make you feel, that although built in a modern and... More

All is good other than rooms sizes, these sizes are belong to pension rooms not a 4 start hotel room. No lobby that you can meet or have a coffee. it is comparably good though considering other hotels in the town.

What a shame that an ideally located hotel cannot provide the usual 'Best Western' service that this chain of hotels is renown for. No lifts are available in the hotel, and no assistance provided to climb the three flights of stairs with luggage. Only lights working in the room were in the bathroom and foyer. Obtained a lamp from the... More
