I chose this hotel for its location, which was truly perfect. It is on a quiet pedestrian street just steps from the lake, in the middle of the wonderful winding cobblestone streets. It was perfect for getting all around town, whether for walks or for shopping. I loved the decor of the hotel and the rooms, which is cozy Bavarian... More

This was our eighth place to stay toward the end of the our month long vacation and it was a beautiful place and a beautiful room. The staff was very helpful, the rooms were clean and large and the bathrooms were very nice. I don't think that there is a bad location on the island of Lindau, seeing that it... More

We had apfel strudel and cuppachino on the patio overlooking the harbour and Lake Constance. Great venue, wonderful strudel and superb service. Cards accepted. The hotel looks very good and, I am sure the accommodation would be excellent.

We have just spent ten days in Lindau at the delightful family run Ratsstuben Hotel. What an excellent choice and their rating with Tripadviser is well deserved. We can add to it. This is a small hotel set one street back from the lake - obviously then with no views and there is no lift, but we knew that when... More

There are always two ways of doing things : the lazy way and the right way. Ratsstuben hotel proprietor do it the right way. I wouldn't normally rate this hotel the full stars card as the bedroom was oddly shaped and not particularly cozy. However, heart uplifts at the sight of a small but high quality breakfast buffet, where somebody... More

Hotel Ratsstuben was centrally located and well within walking distance to everything on Lindau. Although a bit tricky to find as you have to drive on cobblestone streets, the hotel is beautifully appointed. Our room had a balcony and breakfast was substantial.

We stayed in a suite which had a separate lounge area and bedroom with an outside roof terrace area with sofa and 2 chairs which was nice to sit with a drink but there was no view only other buildings . The rooms were comfortable. I think for where the hotel is situated a standard room would be a better... More

Style of hotel is simple and at first sight is basic, but once you stay you realise the room is spacious, bed very large and comfortable, very large and clean bathroom. Shame no lift (first time I realised that confirming there is a lift on websites is key for the future as it happened twice and it can be hard... More
