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

I was sent to stay here while on business so I couldn't comment on the price, but I certainly loved the location and enjoyed Friedrichshafen very much. The hotel was pretty basic, I had an absolutely enormous room that didn't have much furniture in it, so I found that quite odd and a bit like sleeping in an open-plan office... More

Best Western at Friedrichshafen. There are so many negatives to this hotel it would be too time consuming to list them all, however lack of a working internet on a business trip is most frustrating. 3 attempts to remedy this by the staff resulted in no change and NO INTERNET. Although the staff was pleasant, their failure to grasp the... More

The best part of this hotel is the staff. Very efficient and helpful. The hotel is typical of the older european model. No AC (or fan so no airflow ever), room coffee, iron boards, hand towels and no WiFi or internet access at all. The bed was OK and the shower was nice but there were no soap holders or... More

I don't know, where dit this hotel get 4 stars, as it was worse than any cheapest motel. The rooms were filthy and full of dead (and alive) bugs. Shampoos etc. were half-used and air-conditioning didn't work. Beds and doors were broken and surfaces and sheets was stained and dirty. At the parking lot there were dead rats. Rooms were... More

We stayed in the annex of this hotel which is situated behind the main hotel .The rooms were clean and comfortable particularly our friends room, which turned out to be a suite on the third floor! The hotel is ideally situated for ferries to Austria and Switzerland and also very close to the excellent Zeppelin museum. We ate one night... More

Don't book a lakeside room, they are located away from the hotel, the view isn't great and the aircon isn't good at all. If using sat nav to locate the hotel, trust it when it takes you to the bus station, drive to the bottom and take the pedestrian walkway. Parking is a good two hundred yards away.
