This older hotel provides a splendid alternative to the grand hotels on the harbor. It is located on the Stift Platz adjacent to the Munster "Unser Lieben Frau", a large baroque catholic church, and across from the Lindau Museum with it's fine collection. One can walk about 4 short blocks (3 minutes) to the harbor where tourist activities abound and... More

Beautiful old traditional building in the main square and close to everything in the town. Nice public areas. Fully modernised room, clean, quiet, spacious and well maintained with a balcony that overlooked the square, great! The staff were friendly and helpful at reception. There is no hostess tray, safe or toiletries in the room. WiFi costs extra to use. Parking... More

Stayed here for a long weekend in Lindau. The hotel is located in the heart of Lindau, next to the church (bells!) and by the market square. It's a short walk down to the lake. We booked a single and a twin: both were clean and functional. The decor has been updated to give a brighter feel but the furniture... More

Very nice room overlooking the market square with a view of both churches. The floor was very squeaky- but the hotel was charming. Friendly service and great food in the restaurant. Will definitely stay here again.

The hotel is located in the heart of the old city on the island - an easy walk to anything, including restaurants and the Bodensee. We loved Lindau and enjoyed the hotel, although the there is no elevator and the hallways are a bit dingy. Parking is a short walk away. Breakfast was excellent with perfect service, including preparation of... More

This is a well preserved hotel in the center of Lindau. The staff is very friendly, although sometimes it takes time to get some things done (e.g. check out). The hotel includes a restaurant where you can have also lunch and dinner. The hotel is located in the center of the island. The habor is 5 min walking away.

The reception staff was very friendly and helped us with the train schedule and other tourist information. Breakfast was good also. Basically the whole island is a place where they try their best to preserve their historical buildings. So, we got a hotel that has no lift and air-conditioning - not a nice experience in hot August summer weather. It's... More

The location cannot be beat, but the Hotel is old and the plumbing in great need of love and attention. I woke in the middle of the night smelling the toilet! Some staff were friendly, and others not. I would recommend the city to friends but not this hotel!

The hotel is located in the heart of the island lindau from where you can reach every sight in just a few minutes by foot. The only bad point about the location is the parking problem. There are almost no free places throughout the island, best option is to park before you cross the bridge for 7€ a day. The... More

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights over Easter.Our room number 23 was a spacious double with a sofa, coffee table, desk and very comfortable bed. The bathroom was small but that is to be expected in an old hotel. It was adequate however with good water pressure in the shower. Everything was very clean. The hotel has a... More
