A good base to visit Friedrichshafen, conveniently located close to the ferry terminal and various attractions. Friendly and efficient staff. Clean and comfortable rooms. I found the breakfast buffet particularly good. Good value for the price. Would stay here again.

We stayed for three nights with our two year old son and can't fault this hotel. We have stayed there before and this would be our first choice if visiting Friedrichshafen again. It is located in the old town close to the Zeppelin museum, shops and seafront restaurant area. A nice touch which illustrates the attention to detail are the... More

A friendly welcome was the perfect way to start my stay. The hotel is run to the highest of standards, from reception, restaurant staff to housekeeping. Ideally situated - easy walking distance from Friedrichshafen Stadt station and a couple of hundred meters from Bodensee and the Zeppelin museum, it's also central to a lot of cafes and restaurants. They don't... More

We stayed 2 separate nights. It's located in the center next to the lake inside the shopping streets. Some budget priced rooms hotel offers are very small but well equipped and very clean. There is a small sauna and small indoor swimming pool in the cellar but it's mostly crowded. Good buffet breakfast and parking are available. We like this... More

This is a great hotel. The rooms are clean and nice. The complete team is friendly and with a very warm welcome. The breakfast is in a nice atmosphere and very good food. What I would like to add is that the pricing in the bar is very high. During my last stay in another hotel a GIN TONIC was... More

Friedrichshafen is a delightful town on the northern shore of Lake Constance (Bodensee). It has excellent transport facilities, with boats to all parts of the lake and a car ferry to the Swiss side. There are plenty of buses, the railway station is just a ten-minute walk away, and the local airport is only 3km to the north of the... More

The City Krone benefits greatly from it's central location in Friedrichshafen. It's already right in the central shopping and restaurant area so travelers can enjoy the convenience of an easy walk to the shops, restaurants and waterfront. It's also an easy walk for business travelers to both MTU and ZF. The rooms are clean and comfortable although there are no... More

Amazing hotel with great location, right in the center of the city. Rooms were very clean and large, with a big bathroom and a nice street view. Very nice pool, also for the kids. Parking right behind the hotel. Awesome breakfast! Don't miss the Italian restaurant, just outside the hotel.
