I cannot write up the hotel at all since we didn't stay there (wish we had though). We did eat at the restaurant, however, and were very pleasantly surprised at the quality of the meal. It is an older Gasthaus right in the center of town, surrounded by other restaurants of various types. Nothing to really draw one to the... More

This was a surprise.. Small hotel, friendly, clean centrally located and good breakfast. The prices are fair and good. The "mini bar" is a fridge on the first floor and you just write down what you had and the prices are realy good. Will stay there anytime again when we are around!

This hotel-gasthof was delightful in every way. It is a traditional bed-and-breakfast style hotel on the beautiful Bodensee (Lake Constance). Our double room included a delicious and generous, traditional German breakfast, with all the coffee you care to drink. We also ate dinner at the hotel the first night---it was excellent. It was almost as if we were guests in... More

According to the hotel booking websites the hotel had no rooms available. This wasn't true - booking directly over the phone was easy. It's a modest pale blue house in the middle of Friedrichshafen's shopping area. Entrance is through the restaurant. Our room (42) was a proper little apartment with cooking, dining and sitting areas. Not bad for 90 Euro.... More

This is not a luxury hotel but does the important basics well. The room was comfortable and clean. Breakfast is good and plentiful. Food at other meals was well cooked, tasty and good value. The service, though, was outstanding. The family and everyone working at the hotel go out of their way to ensure you have a good stay. The... More

We stayed at the Hotel Schwanen in October 2007 for five nights. The Schwarz family were very welcoming and made our visit highly enjoyable. We had a large double room, which was very clean and well equipped. The buffet breakfast is worthy of particular mention; the range of fresh bread, cheese & meats, in addition to the standard juice &... More
