This is our fourth visit to Villino and the second since it was significantly extended The hotel service is efficient, highly organised, unobtrusive and very friendly. Our German is good but the staff speak English fluently so it's never a problem to communicate. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. The restaurant serves simply wonderful food with an Italian-Asian influence. The set... More

This is a wonderful hotel that feels like it is in a vineyard in Italy; actually it is almost on Lake Constance with a view of the Swiss and Austrian alps. Everything is "bespoke," from the informal check-in to the fabulous meals. But you will pay for this. By far the priciest hotel on our trip. Worth it? I'm not... More

We just spent a delightful 2 days at Villino. Our accommodations were wonderful, the owner Sonia was extremely friendly and cooperative and the dining room deserved its Michelin Star. The comments about "pricy" need to be seen from a different perspective. A meal of this quality in any major european city would cost considerably more. The breakfast was on a... More

We stayed here as part of the Mercedes Benz European Delivery program. It was winter, so cold and dreary, but I could imagine the grounds here are absolutely gorgeous in the spring. Inside, it was warm and inviting and made us forget we were in Germany and instead in Italy. Tree - beautifully decorated for the holidays with many inviting... More

This was a very nice place. The staff was friendly and helpful. We prefer larger resorts with a few more amenities but it was a nice stop over. I thought it was going to have views of the alps but it does not. The 7 course meal was awesome, pricey but awesome!

OK, it’s pricey, but $aving up for this splurge, wending your way up the winding, narrow streets and lanes is worth the quest. Villino is extraordinary in its setting, surroundings, amenities, cuisine…and staff totally focused on a guest’s well-being. There is a certain atmosphere of efficiency, totally understated. You come to the mental conclusion that everything you could possibly request... More

On our trip to Bavaria in July 2013 we wanted to stay closer to Castle Neuschwanstein so we could also visit Lake Konstanz and the Mainau Flower Island. Lindau seemed to be the perfect in-between destination for this. When we researched our hotel options in Lindau we came upon the best in town - Hotel Villino. It was expensive but... More

We stayed at the Villino in May and truly enjoyed it. The Azurro Suite was spacious and elegant and the Restaurant is worthy of its 1 Michelin star! The location is about 10 minutes by car from the Lindau Insel and very easy to find.

We stayed there 3 nights and enjoed the wounderful restaurant - excellent wine list - and very friendly service. The staff loved our dog and was very helpful. But the most exiting experience was the garden. We have never seen such a good planned little park with nice corners, water basins and hidden sculptures. The blossoms in the garden and... More

This hotel is terrific. Tranquil, beautiful architecture, setting, gardens. Wonderful staff. Spa is a small gem. Can bicycle to neighboring villages, walk among neighboring orchards and gardens, enjoy Bodensee. Restaurant is wonderful for breakfast, maybe somewhat less than wonderful for dinner, but still terrific. I absolutely recommend this hotel: you won't regret it. However long you stay, you will wish... More
