We took a last minute trip to Lindau and were so happy with our stay at Hotel Helvetia, which we only selected because it had an indoor pool. We had out 22 month old daughter with us and the staff were so gracious with her. The front desk staff was very welcoming and helpful to us. Although I did not... More

Summary: Fine hotel at prime location. Good for a stop over, but also not stellar. Sound can be an issue. Location/View: The hotel is nicely located in the first row overlooking the harbor. From a view point of view, a problem is that in front of the hotel there is Mangturm (an old tower) which blocks parts of the view... More

Dear Guest, thank you for your extensive assessment. As you tell we can confirm that the single rooms are the weak points of our house. Next year these rooms won´t be there, cause we are planning 4 new suites in stead of. It´s a pitty that you can´t use our roof top panorama sauna with our new infinity pool. From... More

Trip Advisor does not list separately restaurants here as part of a hotel, so I have to use the hotel review to review the restaurant. DISCLAIMER: we did NOT stay at the hotel. We ate at the outdoor restaurant. It is excellent. View is sensational. Service excellent. Food expensive but good.

We stayed there in the Swiss Mountain Suite for two nights and rented an additional Wellroom for another night. We arrived around 8pm and initially were kind of surprised to learn that there was nobody going to take our luggage to the room and or park the car for us. This was sort of a hickup and given that we... More

just to answer some of the critics, there is underground secure parking available for 13euros/night. It's just 20meters from the hotel - ask at reception. Also it's not expensive if you go for one just night :) Breakfast is brilliant by german standards. and there is large sauna on the roof together with a small pool/hot tub which is 33degrees... More

Stayed here recently, with my husband, it's a beautiful setting, breakfast was amazing and the staff can't do enough for you. The swimming pool was very small and dissapointing, but spotlessly clean. It's an expensive place, but very beautiful.

The loaction of this hotel is perfect, right in the middle of the marina with a nice view of the harbour. It is quite a small hotell, with not too many rooms which is nice because then the staff actually remembers you. The hotell and spa is some what expensive (but so is everything in lindau, and probably around the... More

Major inconvenience. Lost & found: We left our brand new top... More

I really liked my stay here, the rooms were clean, spacious, modern, relaxing and well decorated, there was a little good night story and sweets on the pillows. The hotel is situated right in front of the lake as well which im sure is fantastic in the summer and also very pretty in the winter. The spa facilities were lovely,... More
